    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    That's a Reveal RA300 PC Radio Card. I inherited one from my late great-grandfather and still have it somewhere, though the software disk is long gone. All it does is let you listen to FM radio using an antenna and doesn't require a sound card to use. You may be able to find some freeware to get...

    Cheapest LGA 1155 mobo, that supports USB 3.0???

    You are limited either to used name-brand motherboards or getting a generic B75 motherboard from China. https://www.ebay.com/itm/B75-1155-Desktop-Computer-Mainboard-Durable-Motherboard-CPU-Interface-LGA-1155-N/163426451858 I have purchased both generic H55 and H61 boards similar to this last...

    Linpack Xtreme Released

    Thank you for making this... did have the problem with 1.0.0 and false hardware failure warnings, but 1.1.0 seems to run fine now on my 5820K/X99 system. Both my 5820K and FX-8150 ended up being unstable and I likely fixed the FX-8150 with a 0.5x multi drop, but my 5820K has always been...

    Most recent version of Word Viewer needed

    Although Microsoft has made it impossible to search for them on the native Windows 10 Store app, you can install the mobile Office apps and skip sign-in to use them in read-only mode: Word Mobile: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/word-mobile/9wzdncrfjb9s#activetab=pivot:overviewtab PowerPoint...

    $12 windows 10 pro key

    I bought two of them a month ago and have used one on a completely fresh Windows install with zero issues. I learned about the site via a YouTube video and got the keys for $12.60 each with an affiliate code. The keys were delivered within an hour to my user account, and I had no problems paying...

    UPS choice...

    We've purchased 5 CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD units over the last few years and they've been completely fine aside from either the power button or screen backlight LEDs quickly degrading on some of them. Considering we got most of ours on sale for ~$150 each, it wasn't worth buying traditional...

    NVIDIA Has a DisplayPort Problem Which Only a BIOS Update Can Fix

    I've had these issues for a few years with my Acer G257HU... it's a shame it took them so long to acknowledge this.

    TPU's F@H Team

    Yep, I got mine for $868 on eBay. It was opened and claimed to be "unused" which I doubted, but I couldn't find a speck of dust on the card or radiator, so maybe it was lightly tested or very carefully cleaned. The seller has been on eBay for 18 years and had pretty much 100% feedback, so I...

    Seems like I've missed some good deals recently while I've been busy with life, definitely need to pick up at least one new card soon.

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    My QX6800 G0 runs fine at 12x and stock voltage (1.337v) in my Dimension E520, but as mentioned above, it may depend on your luck as well.

    Bump for great PSUs, I've had four of them for five weeks so far and they are absolutely perfect :)

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    Yep, it's been a while since I've overclocked the older Core 2 chips, and my dual core X6800 topped out around 3.4GHz last time I tried, but that was on a refurbished and voltage locked ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 that I bought 5 years ago for $25 on Geeks.com and it finally died in April. I'm not...

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    My mistake was that I didn't press UNLK to unlock the voltage and multiplier. I can do so now, but my remote machine froze at 12x and the default 1.337v so I'll have to play around with it later when I have access to it. My QX6800 is a G0 core, by the way.

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    I just tried the latest TS on my Dell Dimension E520 and QX6800 (and pretty sure I have before) and the multiplier selection doesn't go beyond 11. Am I missing something?
