    This seemed like the appropriate place to post this, i'm looking to buy a new new rig from the ground up and was wondering if i could get some info on the rigs on the front page (puppy, dolphin, etc.) just thoughts complaints comments etc, problems i may have to face, anything really

    Hi Snik, this actually isn't the appropriate place to post this. This is a thread aimed at random-chit-chat vaguely related to computers/tech, a place for MMO-C's tech community to unwind.

    What you want to do is make a thread in the Computer Build / Upgrade Help forum, make sure you go through the stickies first - you will find a massive range of great sample builds, great links and a format to use when making a thread (just simple stuff like your budget, purpose, etc etc). The rigs that Chaud posts on the front page are alright for *starters*, but there is very little variety since he has to try and summarize everything in 4 builds lol.
    I recommend basing your questions on Marest's Sample Builds instead, it's in the sticky in Computer Build forums.

    Not entirely true, depends what the floor is made of, how well it responds to vibrations and whether the user wants the vibration coming through the floor or not.

    E.g. I have a wooden floor (room is upstairs) and I prefer being able to feel the bass via my feet, it gives a true sense of "power" to the beats in the music and makes drums FEEL like actual drums - you don't just hear it, you feel it. For me placing the sub on the floor vs placing it on the desk had a notably different effect...and my sub isn't even directional!
    In the specs it says "Fourth-order closed bandpass enclosure design", which is gibberish to me but it's something to do with the sub drivers being enclosed in a box and going out equally in all directions....I think.

    It is just jargain used to make things sound more than they are, the enclosure is just a wind tunnel to give a pseudo direction to omnidirection, in essence pulsing in a cross pattern. Also Id say I was trying to agree w/ you, meaning its less about up down left and right than it is about the acoustic value of the location, Ideally the absolute best locations are usually beneath stairs in that angular crease, will thunder the house around you. Imo the feeling of bass power is when it pushes your chest.

    ehm guys i think i need some software to monitor my Vcore with my current OC :P
    got HWM and CPU-Z show only 1,06V for my current 4,57'ish Ghz clock..........

    That's probably VDroop. Volt dips during load, because of the computation taking shortcuts. I could explain it more in-depth, but, eh. It's irrelevant.

    well yeah i've read abit about that but it is actually spot on for the past hour and seems on the very low side ? (yea i know 1h stress test is short so far but it's still running ofc :P)
    dunno perhaps just a fishy feeling because with way higher Vcore(up to 1,425) i never managed to get a stable OC beyond 4,2.

    Those might be "holes". Try it at 4.4 and it may be stable. I know for a fact that with 185 MHz on the FSB and 19 multis, it won't work for me, no matter how hard I try.
    But 200 MHz and 20 multis is perfectly stable at even lower vCore. Those things happen.
    If you're really obsessing over it, you can increase your LLC a bit, but that is not recommended as per Intel's specc (because the voltage may spike unexpectedly if you get a slump in the workload, but the vCore keeps overcompensating) which basically overcompensates for the vDroop. I would not recommend it, since if it's stable, it's stable, and I'd approach an LLC-less oc before an LLC'd one.

    bass has no direction at <85Hz, if you are using it as a 135Hz LPF placement matters

    aah well so far it seems stable and with pretty good temps +_60 (mostly mid 50's with 65 as max)
    guess ill truly find out how stable it is when ill let it work tommorow when ill be at school.

    ps : idle it's on 1,04 that seems interesting at best with what i've read about Vdroop so far

    What does the vCore readout say in, say, OCCTPT?

    99.34~FSB with a 46 multi
    Or if an AMD CPU, 198.7 with a 23 multi.

    While being bored waiting for parts to arrive I made a logo for my next project. The build itself is nothing too fancy, but it will hopefully be done by the end of the week if all goes according to plan.
