    Thanks for doing this! The 7850's performance was about what I expected, but the big surprise for me was how well Iris Pro stacked up. Fortunate for AMD that the APU is able to be sold at such a...

    I don't have hard numbers on that specific configuration, but I would say that you'd get a good performance boost. The vast majority of games are not terribly CPU-bound, and your proc is still...

    That was my inclination from what I've read about Supcom's architecture, thanks for confirming! :) E8600 it is then!
  4. C2 Q9550 @ 3.5Ghz or E8600 @ 4.5Ghz for older games?

    I'm looking to upgrade my gaming system; I'm pretty casual at this point so I don't want to spend more than 50-100$ on a new CPU (I already found a good deal on a pair of GTX460 cards so that's...

    True that. 220W TDP is larger than many entire systems! Before I went with a laptop workstation, I was running an 8120 @ 4.6Ghz and 1.55v (which works out to something like 180-200W max I believe)...

    Down to 279.99$ at Microcenter too! Link

    I imagine AMD is realizing they can't compete at high price points- bumping the FX flagships back down into "value" territory can't hurt! If you don't mind...

    Just the usual suspects... Blizzard titles and whatnot. I tried Dungeon Siege but it wouldn't register touch events at all for some reason, shame- that was a fun single-player campaign. I'd really...

    After some searching, I found Gesturekey which pretty much does exactly what I wanted. Besides mapping touch events to mouse input, it can also map gestures to keystrokes and mouse+keyboard combos....

    Multitouch enabler for games?

    I'd like to play some old(er) RTS and RPG's on my Venue 8 Pro tablet but of course those oldies aren't multitouch enabled. I found the "Magic Multitouch" app from iBuyPower which looked just perfect...

    So, I'm bailing in the Quad-Quad. I'm going to be moving in a few months and I need to trim the collection down. If anyone's interested, I've got a blue Arima board (from the same reseller that has...

    Lol. I wouldn't use one of these for an HTPC, that's for sure :P

    Seriously though. I agree with ~400W with 55W "HE" CPUs and a basic GPU; worst-case scenario with a high-end GPU and ~120W "SE"...

    What are you using it for? These *are* 5-year-old systems, keep in mind. For things that don't use an absurd amount of RAM and/or have fewer than 6 threads, a single modern multi-core CPU will be...

    If there aren't any labels on the rear of the case with the Chassis part #, the motherboard ought to be silk-screened with it's model #. With that, you should be able to cross-reference with...

    (Retro!) Best Pentium M for overclocking

    Hi folks! I got a good deal on Ebay for a CT-479 to go with the P4C800-E Deluxe I found in a dumpster(!) and I'm wondering which CPU to get. Dothan, of course- and I'm looking for highest...

    Yikes! That's a pretty awful airflowflow/noise ratio. Shouldn't be too hard to add an 80mm+ fan though. My PP&C unit is pretty loud as well- once I've tested it more under load I may replace it's...

    @ Confusis- which PSU did you get?

    @ Sparky- I don't think PXE vs Locally booting would make a difference- AFAIK, the process is the same; just the source of the system image is different.

    It'll have to be Linux and flashrom; I don't think DOS will work with EFI actually. I need to sleep so this will have to wait.
  18. Hmm... Got a thought. This board automatically...

    Hmm... Got a thought. This board automatically tries to PXE boot- I bet I could set up a PXE server on one of my other machines with DOS and flashrom. Stay tuned.

    Success! Kind of. I finally got the heatsink mounting brackets fabricated and assembled the system on my test bench- and it boots!

    Bad news? I can't access the goddamn BIOS, which means I'll need...

    Lookin' good!

    I'm almost done with my heatsink brackets- should have the system ready to go this weekend.

    Hmm... Without manufacturer documentation, it's hard to say what those would be specc'd at. I'd recommend hacking a wiring harness with extra leads for a multimeter (or two-one for 5v & one for 12v)...

    Case looks nice, confusis! Looks like you still have room for a PSU and a couple hard drives up top.

    I'm still working on custom retention brackets for my heatsinks. Suffice to say, it would've...

    That is correct. 8358-SE and 8360-SE are 115W+ parts. 8346-8360 are the only ones that will work at all with this board; I say 8350HE is the best bet. It offers 20% better mhz/watt than the others...
