Oh dang!

I thought I had this faulty dynamics processor sussed when I replaced the LM7815 on it's split rail PSU. Turns out one of the channels is dead; it's showing a gain reduction with no signal present.

So tomorrow i'll hook it up to mu MotU interface, pop a hot 100hz signal through it and trace it to, hopefully, a faulty op-amp; with a digital multimeter!

Sheesh!

Major. Q95 bottlenecks 470, ironically. Probably a good 20 frame increase on GTAIV.

If your old quad bottlenecks, then my bottlenecks for sure, haha. Looks like I have to wait another year or so before I can use my 5870 to it's full potential.

Then again, GTAIV does relies more on CPU than GPU.

GTAIV is really CPU intensive. Most games shouldn't see much difference though.

Core2 Quad and i7 1366 are almost (clock for clock) identical. They score in the same region in Pi, iirc.

Halloween display is finally up! You can see most of it at my blog here.

Gosh I need a proper blog...

Anyway, the third part should be up tomorrow or Saturday, it got too dark to take all the pictures I needed.

Here's a preview of it though. http://s465.photobucket.com/albums/r...0-21183944.mp4

Hey SniperViper...It's getting to be that time of the year again. Is our "competition" still on?
