I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well what games do you play? BF3 for example would benefit from an overclock. You should be able to get 800-850Mhz without a voltage tweak.

A:Is EVGA GTX 650 2 GB worth it?

Do you have a budget for how much you can spend on the Video Card itself? I would suggest shopping around because Amazon doesn't always have the best deals. Depending on where you are located, you could find some really sweet deals. Spending another $10 you can get an EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487024 ) or for the same price as GTX 650 you can get a PNY GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB ( http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8906822&CatId=7387 ). I'm not saying you have to buy either of those cards, just showing you that you have options. You could also go with an AMD video card if you wanted to. Let us know how much you can spend (on either just the Video Card or the whole system) and we can help you out.
Also, looking at the specs you included, it looks like you have a decent plan for the build. I would suggest getting 8GB of Ram, not just 4GB. If you want to game on it, then 8GB is pretty much the "safe zone" for gaming.

Im building a new system and I am ready to order... but every eVGA or XFX 7900GT is out of stock... and I noticed that they have the highest clock and memory speeds. Now, the GIGABYTE version of the 7900GT is still there but I dont want to but it if theres going to be a difference between the cards... so is there going to be a good difference between these cards? I mean, I know that the 7900 of any manufactuer has to be better then any 7800GT out there... so is the eVGA version worth waiting for?

Weird, it's actually listed higher than the 7900GT :haha: 100 bucks less though :rolleyes: Good luck! Of course I can be wrong about the whole thing because maybe you don't use newegg.com. In that case, if you don't wanna wait, get an XFX or BFG brand (my opinion)

That is a very good OC. I OC for benchmarks, but run stock for games. as long as you maintain low temps like you have, you are good.

I recently bought a geforce 6800 gt 256 mb video card by EVGA. And my favorite game, Battlefield 2, cant handle it on all high settings on 1024x768 resolution. It runs well, but sometimes, i get frame drop to like 20. Thats with Anti aliasing turned off.
So i am deciding to buy this cooling for it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835186133

And was wondering how much i can bring up the core clock speed up by, and if that speed would make any differnce?
Here are my system spec

-Amd Athlon 64, 3200+ (With Dynamic overlocking enable, which increases processor speed by 10 % under heavy load)
-MSI K8t neo MB
-2 gig corsair XMS ram
-AC97 audio onboard sound
oh yeah, the card is AGP version.
 

A:Overclocking My EVGA Geforce 6800 gt

every single card is different. I`ve had some cards that will clock to the sky, I`ve had others that would hardly do 10MHz over stock, it`s just luck of the draw as to how good your card will overclock. I use coolbits to overclock as it`s about the easiest and has an auto detect feature which most times gives you a good overclock, but also keeps you in a 'safe' zone....in theory anyway.

Hey guys, I'm fairly new to overclocking (did it before, but due to my new system, I'm a little afraid and unsure) so I'd like to ask you all a question:

I have:
Gigabyte K8NSC-939 Socket 939 Mobo
Athlon 3500+ Venice
2 GB of Mushkin SP3200 Memory
6600GT BFG

Now, is it worth overclocking? How much speed/increase will I get from this - and is it relatively safe? If I do overclock, I'm planning on using stock cooling (my CPU idles at 29C and during 2 hrs of BF2, it tops out at 34C). But I dont think my memory has a fast enough timing to really push an OC. So for those who are pros at this, please give me some guidance and suggestions.. Thanks guys!
 

A:Is it worth overclocking?

You have a pretty good setup for this day and age. I don't really think overclock will help you much.
If your system runs stable, leave it alone. Maybe just check the timings on your RAM that they are the recommended.

hey people,

I want to buy a new PC, but I'm not sure what processor I should take. My first option was a i7 2600, but now I'm thinking of a 2600k. But is overclocking worth it? Or should I just stick to a 2600? And if I take the 2600k and start overclocking, are there any risks I should be aware of?

Best regards,

Broeci
 

A:Is overclocking worth it?

The fact that you are asking if "overclocking is worth it" probably answers your question.

Whether or not you OC is probably dependant upon what workload you undertake, how much you like tinkering, and if you are working under some very tight time constraints - the latter is more applicable to content creation and media applications.

Personally, from the price difference of the two models, I would go with the 2600K. Pricing difference is minimal, and resale -if you plan to upgrade in the future- will be higher. So even if you do not plan on overclocking, the 2600K makes a degree of economic sense.

For most users I would think that Sandy Bridge's turbo option (think of it as automatic overclocking) will suffice. If, however, you want a little free performance- virtually every 2600K will attain a higher 24/7 frequency for little or no extra power draw/heat output- or you want to explore the CPUs performance parameters then light or moderate overclocking will cause no harm so long as you observe some basic procedure. Even motherboard based overclocking ( hardware and/or software) will offer a substantial performance boost (application dependant) with stability and a minimum of user input.

An overview of what Sandy Bridge overlocking can achieve >>here<< and >>here<<

Be aware that overclocking the CPU impacts the RAM (memory) speed as the two are linked via memory dividers ( CPU: RAM ratio's). For overclocking purposes -even the one-click (software) or one-button (hardware) variety- you would need to have DDR3-1600 modules at the least (with DDR3-1866 for high overclocks which I would not recommend if using the boxed Intel cooler).

If it sounds as though I'm fence-sitting, that's because I am. I have overclocked virtually every component I've ever owned that was capable of being overclocked...but then, I really like exploring the capabilities of a system I put together - both from a performance aspect, and judging long term stability.
I presently run two systems, an older Core 2 Quad and a X58 based system. The former runs at either a stock (undervolted) or with a mild overclock (25%) using only stock voltage. The X58 runs at either stock* (again, undervolted), mild OC╣, medium OC▓ or heavy OC│. Virtually every motherboard these days allows for multiple BIOS/UEFI profiles to be saved as used as appropriate- so you can run the profile that best fits the application(s) you plan on using. Using these different profiles over the same applications then gives you an accurate "hands on" guide to any worthwhile gains you may experience- as opposed to online reviews which may use benchmarks (especially synthetic test suites) which may be of only academic interest.

* Stock for average mixed workload- browsing, email, media viewing
╣ Mild OC - Benchmarking for scaling performance in new applications or major revisions to current applications
▓ and │ Med./Heavy OC for intensive applications ( media encoding, achiving (compression), gaming etc.)

Ok this was originally a long post to write and i accidentally clicked BACK when i was going to publish.

basically i got 2 pcs, a laptop and a desktop, and i overclocked them.

Both had DDR2 667MHZ, C2D cpus and stock gpus.


I overclocked and got lower fps in games, longer boot times and increased heat.

Cpu-z also detected my desktop memory was at 233Mhz ddr and 466Mhz DDR2.

So that means overclocking reduces performance. I could see my pc stuttering on Plants Vs Zombies when overclocked from 2.4GHz to 3.7GHz. 2.4GHz ran smooth 3.7Ghz was like grinding sand paper along sharp rocks.

The post that was original had more results but im not going to spend another 1 hr of my day writing it out again and getting a sore wrist.

A:Is it worth overclocking my system?

Just an update, I touched up the Ram Timings in BIOS to 120% which gave a resulting frequency of 200MHz, is this the correct setting for a ram that according to CPU-Z has a 'max bandwidth' of 200MHz, and will I see any significant boost in performance?
Also, I upped the CPU multiple thingy to 13.5, but after checking CPU-Z it still says the multiplier is at 13.0. Am I right in thinking therefore that the CPU is locked? If so, then I won't bother to try and unlock it.

Edit :

Sorry, this probably should be in the cooling forum, could a mod please move it?

AFAIK, the fact CPU-Z states I am running at 1 : 1 FSB : DRAM is a good thing. My motherboard however states it supports 400HMz, and it appears from CPU-Z that the max badwidth for the Swissbit ram is 200HMz (400MHz FSB right), so shouldn't the rated FSB in CPU-Z be higher than 334MHz? OR maybe I would need to play around with the CPU o/c settings to get to this setting? Also, the one 512mb Crucial stick is apparently rated at 166MHz, so would changing the Memory Frequency in BIOS also change this stick, possibly causing damage to it? Maybe it is best to leave the settings as they are then, as I would obviously only want to run the two Swissbit PC3200 200HMz sticks at the higher value.

Yet another update (sorry) :

I realise now that the things it says are correct, as the CPU runs at 333fsb, and therefore the ram is correctly in sync at about 333fsb as well. I was getting confused with the motherboard FSB. But seeing as my mobo supports 400MHz FSB, is it worth putting up the ram to run at 400MHz rather than 333FSB? Obviously it will therefore be out of sync with the CPU (would have been much better to have gotten the 400MHz version of the XP3000 lol) Am I likely to see any difference if I upped the ram settings?

For anyone who has made it to this stage in my thread without falling asleep, I commend you.

After looking at my 6600gt, the picture of the motherboad, and the picture of the cooler, I don't think it will work. You use the blue pci-e slot right?
I guess there are several options. If your chipset stays plenty cool you could try slowing the fan either using a software program, or by using a manual fan speed controller. Or I've seen people with the same heatsink and a similar board layout cut some of the spokes(or bend them), so that it wouldn't interfere with the card. There also might be replacments with a fan that is quieter available.

Tom’s Hardware readers know all about overclocking, of course. In fact, many processor and graphics card reviews would be deemed incomplete without coverage of overclocking potential. Indeed, articles such as the System Builder Marathon series have a long history of specifically valuing performance achieved through overclocking rather than just through stock performance.

If you already consider yourself an enthusiast, pardon a bit of background here--we'll get into the nitty-gritty technical stuff in just a second.

What exactly is overclocking? In a nutshell, the term is used to describe running a component at a higher speed than its specification in an attempt to increase performance. Various computer components can be overclocked, including the processor, memory, and graphics card. And the degree of overclocking can include anything from simply procuring small gains from an inexpensive component all the way to seeking a level of performance way beyond what could even be purchased at that point in time.

I keep seeing PC's for sale with 64 - bit Vista, but I've heard here and there it might be more trouble than it's worth (not compatible w/ certain drivers/programs, etc), whereas regular 32-bit might be less hassle.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Anyone know?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I noticed on newegg.com that all eVGA products were renamed to EVGA. I found this strange and I prefer the eVGA name over the EVGA name. But I was wondering if the name is eVGA or EVGA. I guess it really doesn't matter, but I kind of care.

Anyway because of neweggs change in names I thoughh the correct name is EVGA. Yet in my eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB (and thats how I believe it should be named. Sorry cfitzarl) manual it is called eVGA.

Anyway, you known the question.
 

A:Is it eVGA or EVGA

If you head over to evga.com, then you see that it is EVGA all over the place. Maybe they decided to change the spelling at some point?

Hi,

I recently bought a new custom pc, but kept old 560 Ti in it.
So System what I have now:
850w PSU Corsair;
16gb Kingston Ram 1600Mhz;
3770k i7 Intel Cpu @ 4.7Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H;
Gigabyte 560 Ti Video card;

There is 2.2 Cm distance between Cards. I would get a 560 Ti in no time if I wouldnt be worried about the heat.

I want to buy a new video card or add another 560 Ti. But Selling my current 560 Ti would be hard here.
I could get a new 560 Ti for 300$ (Hate prices in Latvia(East Europe))
or Gigabyte's Gtx 680 2gb For 740$(Price here)
or Gigabyte's Gtx 670 2gb for 570$(Price Here)
I have a chance getting Evga's 680 FTW 4gb from US but its gonna be only on october 630$ (Price in the US)

Question is, What would you do if you were me?

EDIT: I am using old Monitor - 1440 x 900 Resoulution, Going to buy 1920 x 1080 Soon
 

A:What should I get? Another 560 Ti or EVGA's 680 FTW?

My opinion based on the fact that you aren't yet capable of gaming at 1080p resolutions is stick with your 560 till October and then get a much cheaper 670 from the US (instead of the FTW). For $630 you're inching pretty close to a pair of 670s @ $800. The rest of your machine would NOT be a bottleneck to a pair of 670s but I'd be willing to bet you would be happy with just 1 of them.

A:Evga 6600 256 PCI-E

It should definatly do the trick, I think it would do the job even on full graphics for those games. Of course it would depend on things like your chipset, and amount of ram u have. I run something compareable, radeon 9600 pro 256 mb, AMD 64 3200+ 2.2 ghz, 1 gig of ram with an Nforce3. It can run these games perfect.

If your worried about playing full performance, just buy a bit of an older game first, to make sure it runs well. Like Bf1942, call of duty ect..

If they run to your standards go ahead and get doom3, farcry, or halflife2.

With regards to your problem, did you disable the integrated card? You said that you set the PCI-e to the primary but i don't know if this is the same thing or not.

To disable the integrated graphics in Windows: Right click on your My Computer icon, click Properties. Open the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. Expand the Display Adapters section and double click the built in graphics. On the drop down menu at the bottom, change it to Disable and make sure that the PCI-e graphics is set to Enable.

Well I cant really tell the Airflow of my GPU cooler either (ATi x1950xt) but I know that ATi's catalyst can tell me the temps, and they are about 45 idle and can go WAY up in game. FOr nVidia cards I would recomend downloading NvTempLogger which will log your nVidia based temps (more info at the link). I cant tell you what temps you want to have but this thing will let you know what you do have and then you can easily check nVidia's site for what is acceptable (or a quick google search).

I just bought an EVGA 9400 GT PCI graphics card by Nvidia and I'm having trouble installing it on my HP Windows Xp machine. I uninstalled the onboard ATI Radeon Express 200 card, shut down my pc, opened it up, popped in the card turned it on, flipped video from onboard to pci slot in bios and tried booting... No video. Turned it off, started windows in vga mode, was going to reinstall the drivers to the onboard video and then i realized that my pc had installed the nvidia one because it was being recognized in hardware manager with no problems. I have no idea what im doing wrong, perhaps i missed something. I uninstalled the 9400 and im back on the onboard ati with no problems but I'm back at the begining no installed graphics card. Any and every help greatly appreciated.

Hi All, I'm planning to buy the 7800 GS but i'm not sure which one is the best one, you suggest me to avoid the OC versions and I will, but the problem is that I heard BFG have bad reputation is it true or not? some reviews at newegg qualify BFG better than eVGA and PNY, I would like to get the eVGA but not sure, also the BFG has a pretty good deal with $50 MIR for total 249, and eVga has it for 269.99, what is your experience guys? which one is better? or is it the same from any brand, Thank you!
 

A:BFG, eVGA or PNY for the 7800

depends on warranty

you should check out their warranty policies
I think EVGA has a step up plan and it also lets you overclock without voiding the warranty I think

A:eVGA or XFX 7600GT? or new OC'ing RAM?!

Why don't you wait a month or 2 and buy a 7800GT or GTX. with the new 7900 series out now, retailers are dumping the 7800 series at reasonable prices. I've been watching them come down in price in just the last few weeks. The diff between 1.6 and 1.5 GHz is ntohing and you won't notice it or you can just adjust this in the nVidia settings.

I have the 6600GT also and plan to upgrade to 7800 when they hit a really nice price (next few months).

ps, I can't seem to find any 512Mb 7800GT or GTX , btw, weird.

Which one would you get? I'm soon going to get one, and I'm not sure which to buy...

I've used EVGA cards and am currently using one, and customer service is great, and I love EVGA precision.

However, the Gigabyte has three fans and is already overclocked (I'll still overclock it :P). Also, will EVGA Precision work with the Gigabyte card?

EVGA 670

Edit: Also, it seems the Gigabyte one has an 8 and 6 pin connector, while the EVGA one has 2 sixes.

When I RMA'd my video card EVGA responded very quickly. They gave me an RMA number just a few hours after I requested an RMA, and I got my new card just under two weeks after I shipped it to them. My card did not have any damage like a chip out of the edge though.

Yes, but with the 3GB one, it will use only 2GB to match the other one. So you literary have an empty 1GB GB GDDR5 RAM to hook up another monitor .

Hey guys,

So I tried tracking down a EVGA GTX 670 FTW 4gb to SLI it with my current one, but I couldn't find anything online anymore. Could I pair it up with a another GTX 600 series 4gb or a EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb (when I have a 4)?

I want to SLI (now or some short time in the future) but I don't know what to do about my existing GTX 670 problem. I don't really know much about the compatibility of SLI so I was wondering if there was any insight on here.

Thanks!

You can only pair a GTX 670 with a GTX 670 (Same with pairing a GTX 660 and a GTX 660).

But don't worry if you have an EVGA GTX 670 and ASUS GTX 670 for example, it's still fine.

Andrew, welcome to the forum. You should measure the space between the Back I/O plate and the front of the computer.  This will allow you to see how much length the card can have and check to see if any components are in the way.  Also, I suggest that you contact EVGA Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) to assure that the card will work in the computer.  It requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  I don't believe that your motherboard has UEFI. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

The Co is overclocked. I would go with the cheaper evga because they have a lifetime warrenty. If you want an overclocked card, you can easily over clock it yourself instead of paying $40 extra dollars.

If the installation goes like that, to my 'old' experience, you may try to go the

Hello,

I have been looking at getting a new graphics card and was originally looking at the eVGA 7600GT CO and KO. By the way, what is the difference between CO and KO, and which is better?

Then I found out that the eVGA was having some overheating issues so I began looking at some VGA coolers for about $25.

From there I was thinking if I went to another brand such as XFX or PNY, that the overheating may not happen.

Would you guys suggest getting an eVGA with a 3rd party heatsink (or have you guys had great success with the stock cooler?) or should I get an XFX or PNY 7600gt?

I am assuming that the XFX and PNY don't have as bad of overheating problems from the customer reviews. Which brand is best, eVGA, XFX, or PNY?

What is you guys advice to this dilemma? What would you do? Other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks guys.

Are you sure that it's the video card? Have you run any diagnostics/stress tests? Try vidmemtest (google it) to check your video card's memory: it's could be some dodgy memory on the card.

A:Evga Waranty Problems

Hi Ritespeed,

I am sorry to hear of your delima with your warranty. It sounds like something that would happen to me

Unfortunately companies set a warranty period to support their hardware for the length of time they feel is suitable for their product. It would be nice to have lifetime warranty on a video card but I'm affraid the company would probably go out of business using that type of practice.


Are you positive the card is not operatable? Replacing it in another computer, checking in the Device Manager for conflicts, updating drivers can all be good
types of troubleshooting.

If you are positive it is "dead" then I am sorry, we would not be able to assist you.

Also, is it only human to give your opinion about a product while upset with their Customer Services practices, but the suggestion not to purchase this brand of video card is strickly ones opinion.

We would be happy to assist you with troubleshooting your video card .

I currently have EVGA Precision X installed, but I've seen the MSI Afterburner include CPU temps as part of the OSD monitoring tools. I saw a video of a Galax card using Precision, so I'm aware that it is still compatible with non-EVGA cards. Should I keep Precision installed or uninstall it and install Afterburner? BTW, I'm using a legacy version of Precision due to bugs with the recent versions.

A:EVGA Precision X or MSI Afterburner for new GPU?

I'd try them both and then compare the two and see which one you like the best.

I was running a EVGA 760 up until a few hours ago which I replaced with a 970. When I have the power supply attached to the new card, the onboard graphics won't work, and neither will the card. When I disconnect the card, the onboard graphics works, but the system won't detect the graphics card after I reattach the power supply to it, and therefore it won't allow me to install drivers.EVGA thought it might be a compatibility issue with the bios (or the board), as it's might simply be too old to run the new card. Anyone have any ideas?

I saw this on Newegg....AGP by the way

$109 evGA 6800xt 128MB DDR 256-bit 8 pixel pipelines
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130268

OR

$119 eVGA 6600gt 128MB GDDR3 128 bit 8 pixel pipelines
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130220

Which one do you recommend?
The 6800xt is 256 bit but is only DDR
The 6600gt is 128 bit and is GDDR3

What will give better performance?

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
512MB Corsair XMS Pro
WD 60g hard drive
Creative Audigy sound
 

A:What do you think...eVGA agp 6600gt or 6800xt

I would go for the 6800 since one of the reviews said he unlocked it to 16 pipes?? wowzers, research that and if its true...then take that one

Not sure if I`m liking the all black look, but it`s sweet none the less

12 GB of memory, I`m sure the price will be silly.

That thing is going to be a beast

I currently have a single EVGA 2GB GTX 770 SC and a 650W Cooler Master PSU. I'm getting a second 770 and I'm not sure if 850 watts will be enough to power two of them. I'm currently interested in this PC Power & Cooling power supply as it is on sale for $100 after rebate for Black Friday. I have also heard that this brand is very reliable and high quality.

A:850W PSU enough for SLI EVGA SC GTX 770s?

I would recommend at least a 1000 watt or more psu. It's not that much more money and you have more head room. Lots of new 1000W and above psu's available now and we should see some good cyber Monday prices.

It's a simple question i have 160? to buy graphic card, the best i can get for that kind of money is either EVGA gtx 460 786 SC or MSI gtx n460 786/5d Cyclone.

Which one is better?
Both cost same, one is 158? other 160?.

Which is quieter?
I can't find accurate info, for EVGA it says max noise 40 db, but at the same time it says it is the quieter of this class. For MSI i found review that says it only produces 31 db at full load.

How does mini-hdmi/dvi to hdmi work?
I saw lots of threads on different forums, where people are reporting problems with sound when they connect gtx 460 to TV to watch movies.

Thnx for help.
 

A:GF GTX 460 EVGA SuperClock / MSI cyclone

So, i found more information at goru 3d, they tested some of gtx 460 cards and now it is even tougher to decide.





MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC - The idle noise levels coming from the card are downright silent, in idle you will barely hear the card as we measured 37~38 dBA, which is right below the threshold of noise coming from the PC itself.Click to expand...





eVGA GeForce GTX 460 768MB SuperClocked - Despite the temperatures being a little higher on this card, that does not have an effect on overall sound levels. At its hottest measured point (64 degrees C) the fan RPM had risen towards 45% RPM, and that's still very little. So even this massively overclocked SKU remains absolutely silent.Click to expand...

eVGA is a couple of fps faster than cyclone in most tests, but it doesn't have a voltage raise function if i decide to further oc. Whinch means max overclock is a bit lower compare to Cyclone.


In the end i may just buy the cheapest palin gtx 460 fot 145? and overclok it, i am sure i could oc it to 800mhz core and 4000mhz ram.

Many thanks to all the guys who tried to help on my last problem
MSI 925x Neo Platinum MB. I tried everything but alas the same result.
Then MSI informd me that the guarantee 2years starts from the day it leaves the factory and not from when you purchase their merchandise. So needless to say I WONT be purchasing anything else from them. So take note !!
So guys I have purchased the above MB in its place and wondered if anyone out there had any experience of it. I'm not an avid gamer but wanted someting I could use from my knackered board eg PCU RAM etc to save on costs that would (hopefully) fit this MB.

Does anyone have any experience with this? The "used" 980 Ti I bought off of Amazon Warehouse Deals turned out to be brand new and eligible for the Step-Up program, so I submitted a step up for the 1080 ACX 3.0 model. I'm curious about stuff like shipping time and if anyone has had any hassles? My invoice that I uploaded said "used" on it, so I'm wondering if that would disqualify me.

I have an 8800GT OC nvidia card from BFG. I want to go to dual gpu's. I can't find the same card I have, can I get a EVGA 8800GT OC card and will it "dual-up" with my BFG? I understand all the 8800GT nvidia cards are pretty much identical other than the name on it.
Thanks! Jeff
