Re: Gaming Headphones - So much of choice

I would recommend the sound blaster tactic 3d alpha by creative labs.

Re: GFX card dead?

I was listening to music now and this problem occurred again. The mouse freezes for a split sec then the screen goes into power saving mode and the music stops. I also tried switching the monitor cable to the onboard graphic card when the problem occurred and it also puts my monitor into power savin...

Re: New graphics card for R4500

I would go for a single GPU, less problem, less noise, less power consumption, less heat, more space :)

I played battlefield 3 beta flawlessly with my 560ti so I'm sure a 570 and above would suffice for future proofing.

Re: GFX card dead?

ok this APS application doesn't help because it happened again today. Im not really sure what this program does but when it's disabled all 8 LED's on the card are lit up. When the program is active fewer LED's light up indicating that power is being saved. Either way whether the program is activated...

Re: GFX card dead?

I just installed this app that came with my driver cd, its called MSI APS (active phase switching) It saves power when the card is not in full use by lowering the phase control or something. Hopefully this solves my problem.

Re: GFX card dead?

I came across this response in another forum: "I'd take a closer look at your psu. it may not be supplying the right voltage to your gfx, and hence your monitor. By turning the pc off and leaving it for a while the capacitance bleeds off, which then allows you to turn it back on and it works.....for...

btw the silencio is a lovely case, I've got one, just 1 thing to note, the cable for the front usb doesn't mount to the motherboard header, you have to route the cable to the back of your case and plug it into the usb port out the rear. If you are not happy with that solution then do what I did and ...
