Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Just popping in to say I've got about 150 Dverbs in PT8, it was 220 in 7.4
That was stable tone for 5 minutes, cpu load 92%.
I likely wouldn't push it beyond that in a session because it's...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

just trying to get the temps down. 40 seems way too high when I'm not even overclocking.

CPU-Z is only telling me what the current voltage is, not what it should be.

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

You can manually change IRQ though right?
I haven't tried, I'd rather try a different slot.

Also don't forget to disable ExpressGate in the BIOS, that f*cked up and the PC wouldn't boot past it....

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

I went with an ASUS board because for the price, there were more features. I could be wrong but I don't think there are any Intel boards that are less than $200CDN

I'm happy with my P5Q-E.
I've got my profire 2626 plugged into the onboard firewire and so far so good.


I'd add a better heatsink for the CPU and a quiet 120mm fan.

What kinda case? Antec...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

GTA IV doesn't like these new RAM timings (I'm guessing).
It's crashing either on startup or an hour into the game. The only other thing I changed was the paging file.
