Hey all none of my pc's have changed with my name so i will be redoing them. atleast it gives me something to do for a while :P.
figured ild list of some of my other goodies i posted about.
a Logitech Z-5300e 5.1 THX-Certified Speaker System with Total Peak Power: 560 watts


can run 4 comps on 1 mouse monitor and keyboard which is handy.
and while i was at the store i stumbled apon this cooler for the HD3870

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=017286&cid=FN.251



i got myself some baseline temperatures before i switched and according to the catalyst control center core temps have went down by over 20*c while in crysis and more when just messing around in windows.
here are some pics of the cooler on the card




so to anyone else with this card i highly recomend this cooler
http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=014775&cid=SC

got myself that sound card i was thinking of getting.
so far its exactly what i was looking for. sounds awesome.

sry the post was so big all.

also the email i recived when i contacted pcwizz about the scoring diferences
Hi,

Thanks for the feedback.
Compare benchmark results only with same PC Wizard version.
Between 2008 and 2007, the computation modes are different to support new technologies.

Regards,
Laurent

so after i talk to kc im gonna switch to the 2008 score i suggest everyone else does a 2008 as well.
shortly after this was when KC set all the pcwiz links to 2008.

in light of KC's ? i figured id do another bench too see if it comes up blue.
im thinking the reason it did before was because i dident increase my voltages in the bios and i could only get to 2900MHz or so before it started iving me the odd problem in game.
i have since then brought all my voltages up buy one setting and its running realy stable @ 3000MHz. which makes me realy happy.

Processor stepping. I think you can look in CPUZ or on the box. On my box it says XXXXXXSLACR. The G0 stepping runs cooler than B3, and can achieve a higher overclock.

Pretty cool, starting to look like the "security room" on the TV series Vegas.
I like that show, I have TiVo catch the reruns so I can watch them when I take lunch.

i got another set of 5.1 surround sound headphones.
http://www.biline.ca/headphones.htm
man do they ever sound better on a sound blaster X-FI extreme sound card. i tried to hook it up to headphone splitter so i can leave them and my speakers hooked up at the same time but it makes the speakers sound hollow. which relay sucks. so whenever i want to use the headphones i have to pull out my comp and mess with six headphone wires :(

No front panel connectors for audio?

Even my $20 no name generic case had some.

looks like some sweet headphones. mine are 5.1 also, but they have a usb plug in, so it takes over sound and you have to restart or move everything back to your speakers in the control panel. they are quite nice though. i'd much rather have 6 wires than a usb connector, but w/e i can live with it.

i got myself a G15 keyboard and my brother hooked me up with a G5 mouse for a early Christmas present :)
also added another gig of ram. although i only have 32bit OS's so it really made no difference.
