  1. So I have my first question that is relating to my build; I'm sticking high(er) compression pistons in my engine for a NA build and the compression is going from 9.5:1 to somewhere around 11:1. My understanding so far is that in order to properly leverage the advantages of these pistons I need a new cam for extra lift and duration. I was specifically looking at Crower stage 2 cams for NA builds since it looks like it would be the best medium for street and track use. My question is, supposedly the stage 2 needs more aggressive engine management and restricts the minimum RPM to 1500. Does anyone know if it's possible to get it to idle lower? At that point I could let out on the clutch and start rolling. Edit: the car is an 04 Civic with a D17a2 head swap btw.
  2. Been dragging my knuckles through a variety of forums researching possible mods for my car, I feel really stupid right for not understanding any of it but I think I'm starting to get an idea.
  3. Air cooling extreme overclock?

    I have a dark rock 3 on a xeon 1650 at 4.5 and 1.355V. It keeps my temps in check at mid to low 70s under load. I can go up to 4.7 at 1.42V and it ventures into the mid 80s. You could get a beefier cooler like the pro 4 and it should help.
  4. R9 390 Overclocking Help

    Not all aplications will see a boost in performance from a memory overclock, though with AMD memory overclocking is typically just as important as core overclocks. Its possible your card is not bottlenecked by its memory. If you stick your water cooler on, it certainly will drop your temps but you won't get much more of an oveclock out of it. You can lower its power consumption if you cool it enough, but that is about it.

  6. F@H + BOINC on one PC

    From what I've seen, BOINC doesn't really have any projects that can leverage an AMD GPU. I'm having issues getting my 370 to fold, it just keeps kicking out projects but I think I can get it working in another PC but I need a better power supply. You would be best off trying to get just the AMD card and a little over half the CPU folding and put the 1060 on BIONC workloads.

  8. The VRM on your motherboard regulates the power to the CPU. It drops the voltage and raises the current but if a power supply has a lot of ripple, the vrm has to work harder to filter out the ripple. This ultimatly shortens theclifespan of the motherboard components. In addition, your power supply is one that is known for questionable quality.
  9. Your piwer supply isn't very good, so when you push higher overclocks then your motherboard will have to pick up more slack from ripple. You cooler is an odd choice since I belive off the top of my head it is a single fan unit. It will still work, you just can't go as crazy as you otherwise would.

    Having a card with one of these, I tested it in a case with almost no airflow and it did just fine. It just won't boost as high as it could, but the temps were still plenty acceptable.
  11. Why brown... why...
  12. That's what I thought, I just didn't know if the EU had some kind of registration process for new products. I don't see why they would but it was a consideration of mine.
  13. I thought they had blocked it because of some kind of legal hoops they had to jump through but I don't live in the EU so I know nothing about imports there. I definitely want to hear more about it.
  14. Folding Community Board

    It stopped folding again... Sometime in the middle of the night it finished what it was doing then failed all new work units. I'm considering trading the card for another 960 or similar.
