  1. thanks for the quick response dude, yeah, i definetly need an upgrade, but this is what i got now, until i get the x58 board and the xeon x3470. i dont need anything fancy tho as i only play dota. i can almost run it at ultra settings at 60 fps, but im at 45-50 something, so i thought i could squeeze a few more. il try the bios defaults tho. i was terrified that i screwed it up because after setting the jumper it literally gave me half the fps in dota. even after removing the cmos battery it didnt go back to stock. but somehow removing 1 stick of ram and resetting the bios did?
  2. im new to pc building, i managed to build my setup at around $100. i want to overclock my cpu, its a core 2 quad q8400 paired with asrock g41c-gs and 8gb ddr3 1333 ram. there is no core voltage option in my mb only fsb speed and pcie . without understanding what i did i just incrementally increased the fsb until i got 360 and 105 on the pcie ,i got 2.87 ghz . is there anyway to increase this? if i change the pcie back to 100 the screen is just black, and if i even increase the fsb by 1 point the same happens. in the bios however it did state that before you use ddr3 memory pls use the jumper settings 2-3 instead of 1-2. and i i did that, only what happened is that my cpu benches got halved, and in task manager only read 2.66ghz the stock speed, but in cpu z read 2.88. is there anything im missing here? i mean the cpu is 1333 fsb and my ram is 1333, and if there would be any difference in overclocking if the jumper setting was placed on 2-3?. i also get a flash on my screen on boot that cmos settings wrong when i place the jumper. any input, pls. i dont have access to ebay or amazon as im in asia so i cant order specific things.

    windows 10 installation troubles

    holy shite, im actually a dumb f***. i wondered i kept getting prompted back to installation screen in windows, IT WAS because i forgot to set the boot drive back to the hard drive after installation, so i got 4 windows10 installed and a w7 on my drive because i kept reinstalling using the usb as the boot drive. i am so sorry to waste your time, thank you for your suggestions, i bet that diskpart clean would have solved the issue .

    need help with windows 7 installation using a bootable usb.

    in rufus 3.4 if i dont touch any settings it goes through and creates the bootable usb, however if i change the partition scheme to mbr, and file system to ntfs, it cant go through it will prompt windows explorer is using this device, or an undetermined formatting error has occured

    need help with windows 7 installation using a bootable usb.

    thanks for the speedy replies guys, yeah rufus is a bit confusing, i cant see the add fixes for old bioses in the advanced properties. ive tried enabling and disabling legacy usb support. if i select mbr it will only allow me to go ntfs.
