Good evening /tech/.
since i'm a poorfag and can't even affort a proper graphics card, which wouldnt make much difference to the whole system setup im using anyway, i'm planning on overclocking that little bitch in my PC. Problem: it's a nVidia 6100 onboard. means frying that chip means the whole motherboard is done for. so i thought about giving the northbridge some extra wind. i looked up some sites and "tube ventilation system" seems the easiest and most efficient for me. plus i already have a small extra fan to spare.

any advice on how much i can fire up that little bugger without exploding? i want a little bit more perfomance, but still be in the safe zone. will be using PowerStrip for that matter, since nVidia's tools block me lol.

>> No.1517   [Delete]   [Edit]

I usually do a ~10% overclock, though that is with dedicated graphics cards that were aggressively clocked to begin with. Yours may do more.

There is a point at which increasing the gpu frequency actually results in lower performance. Assuming that your cooling rig works, that point occurs before overheating/potential damage. Aim for just below when you start to lose performance.

>> No.1518   [Delete]   [Edit]

ditch the PowerStrip idea. apparently the GPU's frequence is hardcoded/synchronized with the CPU and RAM frequency. without some BIOS hackery and a decent cooling fan i'll probably just melt everything down. seems i'll have to stick with gameboy graphics until i win the lottery or get a decent job (same chances btw)

>> No.1519   [Delete]   [Edit]

well I know that the 8600 gt is a decent card not too expensive either. i currently run with an 8800 gts and its still holding up to newer gaems. i'm gonna buy a radeon 5850 so i could sell ya my 8800 if ya want

>> No.1520   [Delete]   [Edit]

saw the 8600 GT for 60 bucks. looks like i dont have much to lose as i can sell it to my bro for full price again :V

I was on Wikipedia, looking up something about my school.

Several clicks later, I was looking at robots. Somehow.

Actroid, first fully humanoid robot. Fist gynoid, if you'd prefer that term.

I know my battle station seems small and cramped. I have a small living space.
Furthermore, working in a station like this, I get used to having all 3 computers and radio equipment at immediate arms reach. Makes flowing from one terminal to the other all that easier.

My neice actually.
Yeah, I reconfigured so I could sit in the middle of the workstation and have everything at my fingertips.

I am fully ready for the next launch. I even have my weather station set up along with the antenna ready to go. Once a week maybe I get the chance to try raising the ISS.

I've had one success.
It really is a matter of catching the ISS while they are:

  1. Not too busy
  2. At the right angle
  3. Right time of the day.

If I get them in the early evening, I have 5 minutes. During the day 30 seconds tops.

I need help.

Is there any way to get a media player like winamp to use the "ffdshow audio decoder"?
I can only seem to get it to work with ZoomPlayer and Media Player Classic, but those really aren't the best for music.

It's a pain in the butt for desktop Linux users who are "locked" into the X Window System (XWS). And it is not advanced anymore. Methinks Apple will release Quartz under GPL/BSD license (while still equally cooperate with the development) for the sake of making peace with FOSS and reorganizing the Apple developers. Anyway, the XWS is not in a good shape right now for Linux or BSD systems. Linux obviously couldn't rely on XWS in the near future.

Let XWS and its other distantly related stuffs (Wayland, VirtualGL, Accelerated-X, MicroXwin, and especially Cairo graphics library) die for a decade until they are brand-newly implemented in the future.

X is doing very well thanks. The basic protocol is fine, and with modern extensions (render, composite, XI2), is fundamentally competitive with anything out there.

XCB is on the rise, and does a good job of fixing the problems of the Xlib API.

Xorg and Mesa are in the process of fixing the actual implementation of X and the graphics stack in general (DRI/DRM2, KMS, GEM, evdev, and of course Gallium3D is brilliant (plus delicious LLVM)).

Cairo, of course has no relation to X, other than X was the first platform it supported). If X ever was replaced, Cairo would actually be a big enabler, as a lot of stuff just uses Cairo these days and doesn't touch X directly, so as long as Cairo supported the new system...


Apple isn't really into self mutilation, so that's not going to happen.

>> No.1409   [Delete]   [Edit]


The X (window system) is doing well right now. No complain about that. But other proprietary extensions of X should be FOSS-ed for better development of X overall. More ideas and insights in an open-natured environment benefit X. Hell, my biggest concern would be whether X will render 3D efficiently. VirtualGL and Compiz are solving this problem despite X is leaning towards 2D-oriented preferences.

Come to think of it, X is still fine for UNIX or UNIX-like operating systems. Strict separation between a kernel and the non-kernel userland, variety of init systems, and suited daemons. The problem is whether the Linux development would be a problem applying X when there has been many developmental changes. BSDs, Solaris, and AIX are fine with X. I kinda agree with the OP to some extend on Linux's ability to affiliate with X in the future.

I am an Apple user who too loves Linux at the same time. But Apple did bring some creative ideas for display technology.

The future would be great.

>But other proprietary extensions of X should be FOSS-ed for better development of X overall.

I don't think there are any proprietary X extensions.

>Hell, my biggest concern would be whether X will render 3D efficiently.

X doesn't have anything to do with 3D...
Mesa is currently fairly inefficient, that is one of the problems Mesa's new Gallium3D architecture will solve.

>VirtualGL and Compiz are solving this problem despite X is leaning towards 2D-oriented preferences.

VirtualGL only applies to networked systems. Which is great, but hardly the most common thing, and certainly not for anything that would need high perf., like games.

>Quartz has a better future roadmap than Cairo.

Quartz has aspects of Cairo, Pixman, X, Clutter, and maybe Mesa (but doesn't cover everything they cover together, or even all of Cairo (platform independence)). Apples to oranges.

>I have no faith in Xwindow-UNIX-oriented mumbo jumbo called Cairo anymore.

Cairo was born on Linux+X11, yes. But it was designed from the beginning to be cross-platform, and it is.

Cairo is a cross-platform, 2d, context-driven, potentially hardware accelerated canvas with a somewhat pdf-like API. It does what it does well, and continues to improve. It has a well researched, modern design (~2004). Cairo is probably the last piece of the graphics stack that you would want to replace.

>"over-supported" desktop environments

lol, wut

>might replace Quartz with another graphics component now that Apple has a freaking semiconductor company.

That makes no sense. Quartz either will be replaced or it won't, but PA Semi will not influence that decision.

Also OEM = manufacturer. Most OEM's should have a good search system to locate the exact driver.

I wonder if you simply disabled DHCP. Try going to Network Connections, right click on Wireless Network and click Properties, right click on Internet Protocol and click Properties, and make sure that you have "Obtain an IP address automatically" selected.
