  1. Hey all, my 7900GT has been giving me a lot of problems lately. Sometimes crashing, most of the time huge tearing and artifacting. There's no heat problems, but I booted up nTune to see if downclocking the card would help, and this warning popped up at launch: Warning: Your PCI clock is currently set to track the HT bus. If you adjust the clock for the HT bus, the PCI clock will change as well. Please consult your motherboard manual to determine how to disable this behavior before proceeding. What I'm asking is, could it be that my card is running at abnormal speeds due to the HT bus, which is why i'm getting the artifacting? There's nothing about changing that setting in my BIOS. I've got an ASUS sli board.
  2. Hello. Haven't posted here in a while, used to be active Anywho, my internet is fine. DL / upload run normally most of the time. However, lately, my latency increases to about 300-400 during the evenings and really hurts my gaming. My normal ping to google is around 60, but once the evening rolls around, it's at about 270-300 and WoW runs at 400-500 latency. My computer is virus and spyware free. Here's a log on my nestat -a http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/1531/ipngoh8.jpg Also, it's a wireless/wired linksys. Two laptops and one PC access the router, and the high latency occurs on my wired PC as well.
  3. It is very achievable, infact most 3700+ San Diego cores average a stable OC of 2.8GHz+. The lucky ones who received steppings with higher OC tendencies and sufficient cooling can definitely hit 3.0GHz+ Here's my OC (though not my wall) on a 3500+ Venice (max of about 2.77 with Prime 95 stability): The stepping isn't all that great, either. If I would've gotten LBBWE 3.0GHz+ wouldn't be farfetched in the least.
  4. Why thank you. I intend to visit here frequently, though, work just screwed me with a six-day-straight shift.
  5. Hey all. Not sure if you remember me, but I'm back here on my freshly-built PC. Hope I can be of some service this time 'round. Cheers.
  6. Hmm, speeds have been like this for a while. I'm usually around 70-73KB/sec, but this speed remains constant: :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is:: 868 Kbps about 0.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Upload Speed is:: 106 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Test Time:: Tue Mar 01 2005 18:27:15 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time) Bottom Line:: 16X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 9.66 sec Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 181.82 % faster than the average for host (adelphia.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-SU2JINGEM Lucky me...hehe. (Can't wait till FIOS)
  7. Mike, just to let you know, Adelphia is being bought out by Comcast, so you'll be seeing a speed increase when that does happen. I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that. I have Adelphia as my ISP as well, but I'm paying for their "Premium Package." 4000/512, yet I average around 600k up. I'm ditching Adelphia later this year, because FIOS (Fiber Optics) is rolling in my area. 15000/2000 for $40 a month. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
  8. If my memory servers me, his upload should be right around 250 KB/sec.
  9. Wow, that just got me frustrated... Give it a try though, guys. Nice find, Rev.
  10. Hehe, you've got me. Also, I've noticed that hard working students around me tend to be that of the female sex.
  11. Haha! Can't say I didn't have a chuckle over that one. Thanks for brightening up this time of day, Rev.
  12. Haha! Watching that video was a great way to start my day off! Thanks for the laughs, .s1.
  13. For me, it all depends on what I'm dealing with. If I'm multi-tasking on a powerful computer, then big displays and possibly even dual moniters are a must. But, if I'm on a computer with low specs, that's used specifically for work or chat, then I'd prefer smaller resolutions/screen sizes. This is because when working, I can concentrate much more easily on what I'm doing. Little space gives you little room for distraction. That's why when using the old P3 system (which is usually just collecting dust), I awlays use my old 10" CRT. I find that I get work done a lot faster that way. Hell, maybe I'm just crazy. Gotta run!

  14. Hmm, photobucket must be down. I'll just post the convo in text. him(4:59:25 PM): Oh yeah, me and Michael W just finished making our own speed tweaker for the site him (4:59:28 PM): it's in Alpha though me (4:59:50 PM): What does it tweak? Registry? him (5:00:23 PM): It changes windows shell's memory line in explorer.exe for the maximum acception of file in/out byte size him (5:00:44 PM): Remember how Linux downlaods way faster than windows? him (5:00:55 PM): I was downloading from the M$ site on Linux at 7mb a sec him (5:01:03 PM): and on windows, I download at 1mb a sec him (5:01:08 PM): that's a 90% increase him (5:01:15 PM): because there are no bytesize limits him (5:01:32 PM): it also tweaks the registry. That's some serious bullshit. If he doesn't know that registry changes don't take effect until windows is restarted, then he sure has hell won't know how to "program" what he's claiming. Either way, his program is bull. It's an exe that runs an installer, and that's it. The only reason I did it is because I'm on a friend's computer who's about to reformat.
  15. Here's a friend of mine ranting on about something he probably didn't do. I find this outrageous. [img width=198 height=300]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v150/gregorama/tweakingbs.jpg
  16. In my experience, with my 4000/512 connection, I've found version 1 to be much more efficient. Good luck.
  17. I wish it was my ISP's fault. If it was, I would claim an extra mbps. I guess it didn't clearify enough, but it was the router's fault. My connection is fine.
  18. Today, I asked tech support for help on why I was getting disconnected from the network when performing a tracert, or when certain programs (such as skype) try to access the internet. They said that there's currently nothing that can be solved, but they're working on it. So, I decided to take things into my own hands, and experiment. I downgraded the firmware to about two years ago, and now everything works just fine. I told them, and now they're thrilled. You won't believe the thanks I got for helping them with their issue. I thought you all would find this interesting.
  19. Here are my test results overseas. I live in California, USA. I'm capped at 4000/512. :::..

  20. Wow, that's outrageous!. This must be making you VERY uneasy, Rev.
