Dean, I just got the updated flyer. If you don't get one soon to update the thread, LMK and I will forward it to you.

Most notable changes:

Vid card - Gigabyte R487-1GH-B x2 for CrossfireX
Memory - Corsair Twin3X2048-1800C7DF

Riva 2.10 (I guess I'll need to see if it does anything with these cards because 2.09 didn't ;))
ATI Tray Tool :thup:
AMDGPUClockTool

Dunno, I should be there instead of FUGGER ;)

So, who's doing the snake blood? I'm not, just wondering if anyone here is crazy enough.

^^ We'll either do that or make complete fools of ourselves...one or the other :beer:

LOL, not. In fact, I'd probably get sick watching someone else do it :)

When they asked if there was anything I wanted updated on the event page, I asked flat out to put your info on Team USA 1. You deserve at least that much, if you don't have your own team :shrug:

Boo, Team USA 1 only has 7 votes. TJ has 7 votes and they don't even have any contestants listed HAHAHA. This needs to be moved out to the Intel section to get some play.

Hey Mark/Dean, d/l that ATT...works nice and CCC doesn't even need to be loaded on boot anymore to get the settings. LOD settings are kinda weak, but I guess something is better than nothing.

I'll ask the first Mod I can find to move it :)


Thats good to hear about ATI and CCC. Now all I need is some cards to use :bang head and I could try it.

I'm sure Matt said he was going to do it :beer: he didn't, but don't let the truth get in the way of a good story!

I hear its not just blood, but bile and snake poison and all sorts of stuff....but it will make your skin smooth, eyesight improve, hair stronger etc...... I figure hey, if didn't kill the guy who did it before me...it won't kill me!!! But i'd really like some nice beer to help it go down...so I'm holding you to that Dean.
