    Outside of the empty seats, always good to see Gordon win.... And gotta love that Larson too! :mixed-smiley-010: (I can't help but wonder how good Larson would be if he was with Hendrick)

    Yowsers! While on the one hand, I totally understand Nico's frustration with Lewis, on the other, I have to say that it wasn't Lewis' fault that Nico went from 1st to third..... Great to see Daniel win though! :a1310:

    This from Trusted Reviews Overclocking the P6T SE was a straightforward process and it was a better experience than we expected. The Asus specification for the P6T SE suggests that a number of BIOS options for voltage settings would be missing compared to the Deluxe. Specifically vCPU PLL, vNB-PCIe and vDRAM are all supposed to be absent but we found the options were exactly the same as the Deluxe. Truth be told we wondered about the spec as the idea of a Core i7 motherboard with fixed DRAM voltage is absurd. We bumped up the CPU speed from 3.2GHz (24x133MHz) to 3.86GHz (29x133MHz) and found that the P6T SE was as stable as a rock so we went to the next step and raised the memory speed from 1,066MHz to 1,600MHz which helped performance by a useful margin. Those speeds were...

    Duckie lower it to 3.5 GHz and see it is a heat or OC issue...the southbridge may be overheating since it has the least cooling. I put a small fan on my southbridge

    Looks like ya got her right where you want her! How is the performance on FSX? Also you should be able to use DX10 without much of a performance drop now. I am not a fan of DX10 I think it was thrown together rather shoddily but it does have some nice effects on FSX. Duckie read this: http://mutleyshangar.com/reviews/bc/dx10/dx10.htm Ted

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what
