Now that's more of an advancement. And I still recall owning about 5 floppy disks mack then, and I learned how to use one in first grade. But now...wow.

WTF I was getting horrible artifacts on my screen too for the 3 minutes i was in game. and now as I'm typing this it is idling at 43 c so idk wtf is up with it. I guess I'm taking the heat sink off and seeing if something some how camp loose I have no idea how the hell it would I've owned it for less than a year.  My other temps are all good though and I was still getting the same FPS as I did at normal temps.  

 

EDIT: is using CPU paste on your gpu a bad idea? Pretty sure the whole extreme ice SUPER COOL TECHNOLOGY is just a marketing thing right lol

CPU Paste = Thermal Paste

 

Thermal Paste = GPU Paste

 

CPU Paste = GPU Paste

 

lol

 

This seems to be pretty good:

Well that's good to know I don't need to spend more money lol I hope my problem is that I didn't clean anything off (I just wiped it off) I'll pick up some rubbing alcohol and properly clean it and hopefully my temps will be back to normal : /

Saints Row 4 $1,000,000 package

 

At first, I thought it was ridiculous. But then I read what it included, and it is a VERY good deal. Only problem is how real this is. Because the deals included cost a LOT more than $1,000,000

Should I get the Razer Blackwidow Touranment Edition? How's the build quality? The keyboard I already know looks nice, but I can't verify the toughness of it. I'm also getting the Mad Catz RAT 5.

Mechanical keyboards are over rated imo  Just get the blackwidow one or what ever is cheapest I have a black widow and it is fine... after 2 years of use only wear on it is the paint on the shift key wore out so now when I have it back lit blue shines through in a random spot.  I have the rat 3 mouse and I absolutely LOVE it, just know the stupid cyborg logo wore out really fast and now it's just a weird looking spot that isn't rubberized but other than that the rat series is great IMO

 

Also I doubt any one cares since no one seemed to helped : ( but I got proper rubbing alcohol and cleaned off the contact spots/re applied the thermal compound and temps are barely better... still gets all the way up to 80 c which pisses me off... If I down clock it to 1010mhz and turn the fans all the way up to 92% the temps STILL get up to 73-78 c WTF is going on??? It's a sapphire dual x 7970 if any one knows what's going on.

What are your ambient temps?

 

80c is perfectly fine under full load, how are you testing it?

 

Let me know your clocks and voltages, and I can compare it to my 7970's.

If I can just spend 1 million dollars on entertainment, I ain't driving no Prius.

After you have the tires all burned off off the Gallardo, you can use the Prius for a nice relaxing break to shop for more. biggrin.gif

Ohh how does the 7970 OC, looking at putting one into my current rig to replace my 6950. Don't think I'd even NEED to OC it, and I don't play games at max settings. As I emulate Wii and GameCube with reRendering mostly. 

 

But Wii can be really demanding some times, when I'm rerendering so it's always nice to know if it's a good OC contender

So I'm going to get one of those Benq XL2420TX 120hz monitors to go in a dual monitor set up with my Samsung 1440p screen (the 1440p is fantastic, just not so great with super fast FPS games like CS:GO and what not) ... specifically for only FPS use ...

 

I've never done a dual monitor set up; I'm using two GTX 670's in SLI and so I'm assuming I just plug both monitors in to my primary card and then select monitor focus from withing Nvidia control panel's SLI settings?
