    Re: Vertex LE Read Speed cactus

    Hmmmm. Time to find a more active forum. And one that doesn't spruik their forum in their news section. (Guys, that makes you look pathetic and desperate)

    Vertex LE Read Speed cactus

    I put a Vertex LE into our server at work about a year ago to try and speed up the accounting program we use that uses an database structure out of the 80's.

    It worked! Things sped up. Not as much...

    Re: 4.0Ghz finally!

    I've always been quite lucky getting good over clocking chips. I think my luck ran out on this one.

    While I'm happy getting it to 4.0Ghz, the voltage required to do so seems VERY high compared to...

    4.0Ghz finally!

    I finally hit 4.0Ghz on my 965BE.

    I upgraded to XSPCs Rasa 750 360 water cooling kit with an EK FC5870 block for the graphics.

    Previously, my most successful speed was 3.8Ghz @ 1.425v and that...

    Drobo Pro

    Drobo Pro?

    Worth it or should I go with a cheaper unit. One reason I like the Drobo is its ability to use HDDs of different capacities. Currently I have a mixture of 808gb, 750gb, 1tb and 1.5tb...

    Re: 5970, is it worth it?

    If my memory is right, the 5970 comes with military class components and a HSF good enough for 400W. With the voltage tweak you should be able to safely OC by about 20-25%, again, if my memory serves...
  8. Re: I hate laptops for their small monitors - can someone convince me otherwise?

    You're not exactly using a "big" "high resolution" monitor now, so I don't see the issue. Plenty of laptops have higher resolution that what you're using now. Spending 2 mins looking at specs on any...

    Re: Has ATI taken the throne again?

    If FPS is all that matters then why go with the current loser? ATI quite handily beats nVidia with their 5970 even at stock speeds. When over volted and overclocked it will dominate the 480 even...

    Re: The Messiah is here and has not failed!

    It's not being overly sensational. Not everyone has a 750W+ PSU in their case and not everyone wants to run say a 500W PSU @ 90%+ of its rated capacity and exect solid reliability and long life.

    Re: The Messiah is here and has not failed!

    There's also the fact that if people do want to play some of the new DX11 games, but only want a mid-range GPU, then it's ATI all the way.

    Now they have to get Fermi into the mid-range and low-end...

    Re: Fermi deciples your messiah has failed

    Re: Do laptops choke off SSD performance?

    Re: Why do we have 240hz TVs?

    We must be behind the times here in Australia. We're only up to 600 Hz. Probably because it's about the smallest number that 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60 fps will divide into.
