    What is the Go-To Racing Wheel, Shifter, and Pedal Setup?

    No, not a waste at all. My Fanatec setup is mounted to their CSL Wheel Stand and I'm mostly happy with it. The pedals are absolutely rock solid and I only have noticeable wiggle / movement in the wheel base if I grab on to it and shake it - it's always felt just fine during normal use. I'm...

    What is the Go-To Racing Wheel, Shifter, and Pedal Setup?

    The "best" setup for PC racing sims would be a direct-driven wheel hub and controller (ex. http://www.simsteering.com) and a pedal set with a real hydraulic brake pedal (ex. http://www.simpedals.com/). Very high cost. The best upper-mainstream setup for PC racing sims would be Fanatec's...

    2 sticks or 4 sticks Corsair Dominator

    Why? I don't ask that as a challeange - I'm actually debating the 2 sticks vs. 4 right now myself and I've always heard / thought the same thing but I don't think I've ever seen any real data on it.

    Non-Protected Camera Survives 100,000ft Fall

    Were you referring to me? I said "...two otherwise identical objects that weigh different amounts dropped from the same height would hit the ground at exactally the same time." Vaccum or not, I stand by that statement. If two objects have different levels of air resistance (like a flat...

    Non-Protected Camera Survives 100,000ft Fall

    I don't know if a person or an iPad would have a lower terminal velocity, but I know that it doesn't have anything to do with weight or mass - the effect of gravity on either an iPad or a person (or any object that's small relative to the size of the Earth) is exactally the same. In other words...

    New to overclocking, need help getting more out of this OC

    It sounds like you've already got a very fast computer. What resolution are you trying to play Skyrim at? Based on the Performance And IQ Peview on [H] it sounds like your overclocked i7 and dual 580s should be more than enough to give you a smooth gameplay experience at the highest detail...

    Sapphire HD6950 Toxic Question

    I'm not sure. I'm actually in the same boat as you - I've overclocked video cards in SLI but never in Crossfire. I can tell you, though, that the Toxic runs hot compared to other 6950s with a dual-fan cooling solution like Sapphire's 6950 Dirt 3 edition. My educated guess is that you'll find...

    Sapphire HD6950 Toxic Question

    A word of warning - I had the chance to test a friend's Sapphire 6950 Toxic recently and I found that when I switched from the default BIOS to the unlocked BIOS I actually LOST performance. The reason was that unlike the default BIOS, the unlocked BIOS came with the GPU frequency set at the...

    Help with the last few parts for a gaming build

    Thanks for your reply enginurd. If a ballpark budget is required, I've got up to $800 I'm willing to commit to the burner, power supply, SSD(s), and video card. That budget can be flexible. While I was looking around I thought the HX850 seemed quite pricey but the two things that attracted...

    Vcore Questions - Phenom 9850 BE O/C

    -- UPDATE -- A couple days later I haven't been able to get past 2.7Ghz because I'm afraid to turn the CPU voltage up much farther in case Asus PC Probe / my mobo's monitor is correct. In doing some more research I was able to find lots of cases of pepole complaining about discrepancy...

    Vcore Questions - Phenom 9850 BE O/C

    Thanks to everyone who replied. Sirmonkey - I tried turning the CPU Vcore Offset Voltage off in the BIOS and the only change was that my voltages in the onboard hardware monitor and CPU-Z both dropped about 0.05V but what the mobo's HWM reported was still about 0.2V higher than what CPU-Z...

    Vcore Questions - Phenom 9850 BE O/C

    I’m having a problem overclocking my rig as far as I’d like to. I have a Phenom 9850 BE running in an MSN M2N-E (I know, it’s not a native AM2+ motherboard) The problem I am having is with my Vcore and getting an accurate indication for what it really is. Right now my CPU is running @...

    WoW "Disconnected From Server" issues

    Looks like turning off checksum offload did it. This teaches me to RTFM. Killdozer, I could kiss you right now for pointing out my own ignorance to me :)

    WoW "Disconnected From Server" issues

    Starting last night and going into today I have been unable to play WoW. The issue I have is that after I log in I am disconnected from the server 8 to 12 seconds later. The error message displayed is "Disconnected from server". In the 8 to 12 seconds I am in-game I am unable to send tells...
