Introduction As I was wandering around the BIOS settings, I thought that I would see what the difference to different memory settings would make. I already knew that “less is better” when it comes to the CAS settings and most memory timings… but how about “DRAM Prefetch?” I ran the 3DMark2001 on the following configuration multiple times while rebooting in between each one. The table on the next page gives a summary of my findings and the following few pages gives a brief explanation of each run. Want to know the differences between running [Continue Reading]

Introduction As an intro and sort of disclaimer, I would like to say that I “prefer” Asus boards. I also like boards with “Intel” chipsets… Why, you ask?

I am also under the impression that Intel should know best how to interface their processors to the other devices you may decide to install on a mother board. Since the chipset is [Continue Reading]

Just finished updating all of the galleries with the new FP2002 format. It is great! All of the features that I wanted in FP have showed up in this new version.

Funny, since I have nothing better to [Continue Reading]

Computer time has been maxed in the last few days. I have been reviving some old favorites, some new favorites, and getting ready for the D2X LOD to come out. I really just cannot wait.

Today I did some massive clean up work. I removed the following sections: Patches Best links: Gaming, Online Gaming Sites, Magazine Sites. Extra Cash Section Not only that, but I updated a lot of links that were broken and probably like that for quite a long time. Anyway, I will also update the Diablo 2 section to NOT include so many damn screen shots. I really like having a screen shot for every level of every character, but it takes to long to update, post updates and to long to [Continue Reading]

Looks like having a Dual CPU computer is not all its cracked up to be. Whether it is the VIA chip set installed in the CUV4X-D or if Dual just sux in general, I am not sure, but it was pretty cool until I started playing Diablo 2 and found out that the “SBLIVE!” card has problems with SMP setups…go figure…so I put the 2nd CPU in another computer…up to 6 for me now… 🙂
