Avoid using anti-static dryer sheets with dark cotton polo/golf shirts as they can cause a white colored stain that's practically impossible to remove.

Try stopping the console and add -configonly to the shortcut to fah*.exe on your desktop. Then restart.

I think that the routine to reduce cpu usage is in there. Maybe in "advanced settings."

I should have said "those are excellent numbers for 2 boxes."

Yep, I'm following the info in your other thread. Nice work. Just for fun, I'm gonna lower the fsb to 200 on my 2.8c and see what the results are.

Can do. You're really not only using 50%, that's just the way Tsk Mgr or whatever you're looking at displays the 2 "threads." If you were to turn ht off in the bios, you'd see then that you're using 100% of the cpu, but your frame times are the same. :) The 2nd instatnce must be the console version....

Yes this is true. Over the life of an overclocked cpu, electromigration occurs, with electros migrating away from the cpu. Then, space becomes available for electro immigration and the empty spaces fill up, usually rather quickly. These new electros seem to perform the more rudimentary cpu tasks. Pr...
