    I haven't done it myself but posts by people who have installed it indicate they didn't believe it to be worth it.

    How long should I run prime95? Also, should I run Intel burn test after if I'm running prime95?

    So I tried to install the beta 12.7 drivers and after the install it indicated that I was at 12.4, not 12.7... Is that common?

    Yes, because the 12.7b dont have a catalyst version for some reason.

    i just modify the registry key to make it say 12.7b so I know what i have.

    You know you have latest drivers by looking at the version numbers of the components



    you can run all of them together for the whole day. but 1% of the time, even if it looks stable, it may not be. I've had computer freeze for too low voltage before

    It is a little better, but not a great value with the cost/performance ratio.

    not for cpu, since you can OC both A6 and A8 to same levels.

    igp is a little better. But do you even use the IGP?

    it might work better in crossfire though, as it closes the gap between igp and 6650m

    Did we ever get a solid answer on a LCD panel we could replace ours with? I understand the cable that comes with ours may not accept a 1080p panel.
