Quote from: fsaviator on March 07, 2013, 11:36:01 AMLooking for some more tips. I've finally started to use Nvidia Inspector and with it running it has helped a bit. I now have 30FPS sitting on the tarmac at KDEN with Gary Widup's scenery. I'm happy.Here's my question... I modified the FSX profile in Nvidia Inspector as directed by one of the many sites on the web. Do I need to run Nvidia Inspector every time I start the computer, then load the FSX profile?Do I need to keep NI running while using FSX?The only thing I use the computer for is my 737 so I'm more than happy to replace the default profileThanks!

So I don't do it... Incidentally, I'm running an i7 with 16Gig RAM and an AMD Radion 7970 serving three monitors. I use Project Magenta for the flight deck.

Quote from: blueskydriver on December 30, 2013, 01:11:16 PMHey Warren,Great video and nice job on the backlighting! You mention in the video about you're not good at soldering. Did you tin the tips of the pin items (leds and etc) first, by predipping them, and then let them cool. Afterwards, did you place the pin(s) items through the PBC and use the soldering iron to melt the solder on the pin tips to make the connection/joint? It only takes a little solder to do the job and here is a link to a melting pot to predip into:http://www.mcmaster.com/#melting-pots/=q1d962John

Normally i use 0805 LED's, small enough to shove into most tight spaces yet big enough to hand solder if needs be.give 1206's a try
