Few technologies can compare to the graphics processing power that the ultra-powerful Geforce 8800 and Geforce 8800 GTX graphics cards can whip up. These are two of the most formidable graphics cards today.
Unfortunately, theyâ€™re also notorious for running a little hot. To keep these extreme video solutions running cool, turn to the Cooler Master Hydra 8800: the perfect water-cooling device that allows your high-performance graphics card to run at optimum speeds!
With Intel’s gradual release of chipsets that support third generation DDR (DDR3) memory, such as P35, X38 and X48, the call for futureproof technology has never been greater. The reign of DDR2 memory modules is drawing to a close, especially now that the latest motherboards have greater capacities for overclocking by increasing the front side bus speed. DDR3 memory is fast becoming the memory of choice, primarily because this technology prefetches 8 bits per clock cycle, meaning I/Os are run at eight times the core clock frequency. If you are a system performance enthusiast who wants RAM that offers loads of overclocking potential, get the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory.
To some people’s surprise, four cores are not the only game in town when it comes to overclocking. The Pentium Dual Core E2180 presents a challenge to the more cerebral overclocker. The numerous tweaks and adjustments on a sub-$100 CPU are seen as chess moves. It’s not how expensive it is, it’s the flexibility and performance potential. That is what you get with the Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180. While some pat themselves on the back for their ultra-sheik CPU flavor-of-the-month purchase, you smile away as your overclocked dual core wonder performs at the same level, for a quarter of the cost.
Catering to users who pursue extreme performance at a low price, Asus presents to us the the M3A32-MVP Deluxe WiFi Motherboard. This cutting-edge motherboard supports the AMD Phenom quad-core AM2+ CPU with the latest AMD 790FX chipset. It features the latest HyperTransport(tm) 3.0 (HT3) system bus with up to 5200 MT/s speed, quad PCIe 2.0 x 16 slots, and the ASUS patent pending memory heat pipe design – ASUS Cool Mempipe. Plus, the board includes an 802.11g (54 Mbps) WiFi access point, allowing you to share your Internet connection wirelessly without a wireless broadband router. All of these advantages add up to one impressive motherboard, so yes – pray to get your hands on one.
Overclocking is now a mainstream term in the computer world. Every gamer either has an overclocked system or wants and overclocked system.
There are two reasons that benchmarking is important. You want to know the speed and you need to test the stability. Below are the programs that I use to benchmark every part of my system.
I arrived Monday morning and there was Fata1ty staring at me… I though, “John Wendel, don’t you even knock anymore.” I’m glad he doesn’t. This is the most insane 8800 GTS ever released. I can’t imagine anyone trying to compete with it. It challenges the likes of its big brother, the 8800 GTX and even [...]
