My N82 has dead pixels!!!

Argh! Feel like tearing my hair out! That dead pixel is so downright UGLY!

But I think I can live with it… until it gets repaired though.

How much can a screen replacement get? And it’s not like 1 dead pixel, I think at least 10, and all near a same spot. 😦

Firefox acting up

Firstly, my GMail Manager extension won’t remember my passwords. I can’t click OK or Apply, and it would looked like it freezed. I thought it was normal, but after reinstalling the extension a zillion times, it still won’t remember!

Then all my sites passwords don’t get remembered e.g. WordPress, Project Rockstar, HardwareZone, etc…

So I had to take the most drastic step: reinstall Firefox.

Now after reinstalling everything, all is well. I love Firefox.

Ringtone that increases breast size

Saw this video on YouTube. Happens that if you listen to the ringtone 20 times per day, for 10 days, the breasts size will increase.

So, if a man listens to this more than recommended dosages, he’ll probably ended up with man boobs! Or worse, changed him into a transvetite.

LOL!

But I doubt the theory. Unless I see the results on my own (on someone maybe).

Some comments on YouTube even suggested: Maybe this doctor can create a ringtone that can increase the men’s “down-there” size. I want that if it comes!

My GMail Manager can’t click!

For some stupid reason, I can’t click on “OK” or “Apply”. And as long as I can’t enter my password, GMail Manager won’t work. Not only that, I am unable to contact the author to rectify this problem, so I’m now stuck!

One problem after another…

Now I have to manually open all my emails.

Devil May Cry 4 performance test is not accurate!

And I think it has something to do with my cheap graphics card.

Oh, if you want to know, I’m running 2x HIS Radeon HD 4670 under CrossFireX mode. My Catalyst Control Center version is 2009.0113.2222.40119.

I keep using DMC4 as a gauge for my CPU bench but it seems that on some occasions, my FPS would be around 80-90ish on the first scene, and on good occasions it would run at 160-180ish on the same scene! That’s an insane difference if you asked me. I always bench at 1680×1050, but I don’t find this problem on lower resolution (e.g. 1280×720).

At first I though my CrossFireX is unchecked in CCC, but it was checked all along.

My conclusion? It’s not very accurate or even consistent. At the time of writing, my FPS on first scene hits an average of 160 or so. Yesterday was around 80+.

I don’t know what could have caused the difference, but I do know that as long as I bench at 1680×1050, I will be bound to have this issue.

Nevermind about that, I wanted to change to the more powerful HD4870 soon. Real soon.

Full comparison between clocks

I decided to compare between all my clocks for my personal reference.

Test setup:

Motherboard: DFI Lan Party DK P45 T2RS Plus
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E8400 3.0GHz 1333MHz FSB
RAM: Team Dark Xtreem PC6400 800MHz 2 GB Dual Channel Kit
PSU: Enermax FMAII 460W
HDD: WDC Green Power 500GB SATAII RAID0
GPU: 2x HIS Radeon HD 4670 512MB GDDR3 800/1050

Ambient room temperature: 25’C

vcore/FSB/RAM:

1) auto/333MHz/4-4-4-12-2T 2.1v
2) +100mV/400MHz/4-4-4-12-2T 2.1v
3) +225mV/450MHz/5-5-5-15-2T 2.1v

RAM was at 800 (auto)/800 (333:667)/900 (333:667).

Here we go! Benched using Everest Ultimate.

OCCT Benchmarks on my 4GHz E8400

Like I said, this overclock is already wayyyyy achieved by million others around the world.

But it’s always handy when n00bies like me get to learn so much about the world of overclocking, and I’m sharing that knowledge to the rest of the world too.

So, today I’m going to show you my 8 hour stress test (small data set) using OCCT. And these are the results:

2009-02-25-02h34-cpu1

2009-02-25-02h34-cpu2

Core #0 and #1 temperatures are between 41’C (on idle) and 65’C (on load). Nothing too burning here, though many people wouldn’t want to hit the 60’C mark.

2009-02-25-02h34-chipset

Chipset temperatures are stagnant: 44’C on idle, and 46’C on full load.

2009-02-25-02h34-system

System temperatures: Idle at 35’C, and fluctuates between 41’C and 42’C on load.

2009-02-25-02h34-vcore

Thanks to C1E, my idle volts is at 1.32v and load at slightly off 1.41v and occasionally 1.42v. Not too bad, although Intel specs are not to exceed 1.3625v on their 45nm chips.

2009-02-25-02h34-volt3

2009-02-25-02h34-volt5

2009-02-25-02h34-volt12

Not much comments on the other voltages, it went slightly under on load. Seems normal, nothing too drastic, although a better power supply could be used to maintain stabler voltages on idle and load.

That’s the end! Feel free to shoot me in the head if you like. 🙂
