BLOG UPDATE

Hello everybody!

Just wanted to let you know what's going on and what's coming up!

My next 3 guides are all done towards pro gaming.

Next blog guides will be these:


-how to setup mouse properly, with hacked polling rate
-how to setup network (tcp/ip) settings to reduce latency in online games
-how to setup sounds properly for surround sounds, even with headsets / chipsets without proper support for it


For upcoming videos, I haven't decided yet.

Stay tuned.

QUICKTIP: BSOD (BlueScreen of Death) when using 1600mhz memory with 890GX chipsets and AMD processor.

Hello, I had a lot's of troubles past few month with my computer and started to get a little frustrated because I didn't seem to find the cause. Well, I found it. I'm using Asrock 890GX Extreme 3 motherboard, AMD B55 X4 with Kingston HyperX blue memorys, but I think this will affect other systems aswell.


Symptom: Sudden BSOD 's.

Cause: (Asrock) Blue memory slots doesn't work well with 1600mhz memory, neither do the White slots.

Even if memory voltages and timings are set manually to correct settings, it will bsod. There is something wrong with the memory controller in 890gx chip, or just the plain thing that AMD processors aren't build to run (integrated memory controller in processor) at 1600mhz too good.


Solution: set memory to run @ 1333Mhz in bios.


Other: IF you are using Asrock board, you can try to use white memory slots, set voltage to auto, and try to set timings a bit higher what's specced in memory specs, or take up the bios AUTO timings and try to go with them, or if you took em up and still got bsod in auto setting, manually slightly up them.

My recommendation will anyway be to set the memory to run @ 1333 and lower timings.

This was just a Quicktip in my Quicktip series, and I'm not going to give any more support on this.


BUT, you can leave a comment to this thread and eventually I, or someone else can comment on it.

Quick TIP to enlarge BLOGSPOT images!

Hello fellow blogspot bloggers!

I was wondering why my screenshot didn't enlarge when clicked, so I did some research and found
out mostly BS and irrelevant stuff.. to me.

The reason why images won't enlarge, is because of the image format - crazy huh?

TIP: To make your pictures enlarge when clicking, upload them in .png format.

JPG atleast doesn't work, didn't test all other formats.
Hello Visitors and friends!


A little news update!


Sorry for not being able to update blog so much lately, nor do videos; BUT, I have got plenty of ideas to my todo list for you guys! :)

Anyways, I'm also continuing the gaming and other tweaks blog section soon enough! 

Yeah, so the Network tweaking for gaming is coming up with explains of why and what, and while it's going to be good stuff, it's most important only when gaming with guys overseas or other long distances where you want to push out the last tiny bit of latency. 


Oldschool stuff for all you tech(read: geek)heads out there :)


I played a bit of AvA today, and ended up to crash on this.. I've seen many crashes, but I guess this was the first one of this kind.. wt* is this??


One thing more - When I first started SIRReviews channel in youtube - I thought I will review every kind of stuff I stumble upon, and if it's any worth of attention, I will share my thoughts.. So when you start to see other than AVA stuff - don't run away screaming..

It's going to be computer software and hardware reviews guys, you know you are interested of those.

Also, I know this is a bit corny, but click on those ads if you want to, it's just a mouseclick.^^
