KingT, I thought you were joking about not knowing... tongue.gif

Here you go: https://www.overclock.net/f/293/overclock-net-contests-and-promotions

Wish you good luck!!!

cheers.gif

P.S.: Setting display 100 posts per page is kinda neat. Slower than the previous OCN when I make new post or edit.

The attached photo/pic cannot be displayed at its original size or fill screen width by default kinda sucks, so I don't need to click into them to see them clearly in its original size.


Here's a screen cap of my rig showing at the top of Rig Builder's 1st page:

Hi All Club Members,

I've just started a poll asking for your preference of the new OCN.

I understand similar poll question have been asked by other users elsewhere on OCN.

Vote as you see fit.

cheers.gif

Thanks,
ocman.

I've noticed for a few days that the tags for this owners club are gone and I can't find a way to get the tags I want back...

any fix or workaround?

It seems that they only offer you to pick from the limited pre defined tag selection... what the heck!?!?

Voted in the poll, I went with "Yes and no." Now that things have settled down, the new site feels very quick and slick. I'm beginning to like the layout now that I know where everything is, but still prefer the higher contrast color scheme in the old version.

My favorite feature of the new OCN is the new rig builder and product match. While I dislike the new "sig-rig" layout (its much to long), being able to match your parts with other users is a neat feature. I learned that components need to be manually added to the database for it to be matched for your rig. I added the P5Q Pro and my Asus 6970 last night. It did take a while for them to show up in the database (about 12 hours), but now its fine. Let me know if you have any questions on how to do this. smile.gif


And, also I have some good news! If you remember I dropped down my overclock to 3.8 GHz (400 MHz FSB, 800 MHz mem) a week or two ago because of some weird memory errors I started getting. Since I've been playing Skyrim, and hearing that the game gets higher FPSs with faster CPU clocks, I decided to try bumping up the memory again. I'm still partially convinced that heat was my issue, so I kept the vDRAM at 1.8V, but upped the FSB to 450MHz (and RAM to 900). I also set the timings to 5-5-5-15, and changed Read to Read Delay (S) and (D) to 5 and 7, respectively, in the "2nd Information" ram timings, based on a post made by turrican9.

With the vFSB and vNB set at only 1.2V, and keeping vDRAM at 1.8V, I managed to pass 1 hour of Prime95 Large FFTs (I know that's short) and 12 passes of IBT!! This is the best result I've had running 4x2GB sticks. Before I had to mess with CPU/NB skew, GTL settings, and a manual AI Transaction Booster (and much higher vNB and vFSB) to manage this! Needless to say I'm pretty ecstatic about the results! Should I go for more now? biggrin.gif

Many many thanks to turrican9 for the finding on the 2nd information RAM settings when running 4x2GB ram, I think that was the key to lowering my voltages and giving me a better OC! (and to ocman for posting that you reorganized the OP, making me browse through it once again and spotting the link you made to his post). wheee.gif

Here's a CPU-z validation and a screenie for the proof (and to show off my new desktop background wink.gif):
338

Also, as a footnote, I really heart.gif my H70 cooler, max CPU temps were 61C during Prime95 and only 59C during IBT.
