    Need help with picking RAM

    I am getting the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe mobo and looking for 1600mhz DDR3 32Gb's of ram in a 4 x 8Gb configuration. Should really be paying attention to the compatibility list on the ASUS website? I expect that this list is almost instantly outdated as its unlikely ASUS would keep it up to date...

    Advice on an Open-Air Build?

    I know of people who have actually built a whole PC in a cardboard box. They cut squares out for fans, made little shelves for the HDs and so on. If you have time and your bored then it could be a fun project.

    Help Pick a SSD

    Isn't Samsung up there to? I was a looking at the crucials but i started to read some bad things.... could just be old reviews with old firmware tho... still reading. Also it seems that the 180GB SSD's tend to perform a bit better then 120GB SSD's... possibly i should go a little bigger...

    Help Pick a SSD

    So ive been working on a build for a little while now and i have gotten around to reviewing SSD's but these seem like the hardest things to pick... I have not payed attention to them as they have progressed and I am a little lost on where to start. I am looking for something around 120Gb and...

    Question about RAM

    What type of applications are you running? ive been wondering if i should just go with 16Gb but then its 4x4GB and if i want to upgrade i would want 4x8GB from your above statement. I thought it used only the highlighted ones but i wasn't sure if that was just when all DIMMs werent filled.

    Question about RAM

    I would be going the power user route, i plan to be rendering and running virtual machines. So the actual setup im looking at is x79 chipset and if i want to go to 32Gb RAM im wondering if it would be best to fill all 8 DIMMS rather then 4. I guess im looking at this from more of a performance...

    Question about RAM

    Just a quick question: In General do 4gb sticks perform better, worse, or the same as 8gb sticks? I guess what im trying to ask: Would it be better to use 4 DIMMs over 2 DIMMS? Does dual channel only support two DIMMs or would it have 2 DIMMs in each channel? So in a 16Gb scenario, would 2...

    Post your first FAIL

    Thats what i was thinking. I did a little google research and apparently certain ants are attracted to electronic devices or it may be due to the magnetic field of certain devices... anyway it sounds like they eat some of the rubber and plastic parts. Now im scared of ants in my house

    ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

    Ya, the antenna will definitely help with a reliable connection and im not necessary saying its bad, just that it could be better. When using 2 streams (your router must be capable too) you are able to send and receive data simultaneously, with 1 your are not able to but the protocols will...

    ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

    Ahh thank you. I beleive the "-1GN" means single stream which is what i was afraid of, up to 150mbps vs 2 stream at 300mbps (which you will never hit these actual speeds). Wifi is nothing fancy but the antenna makes it look good. Thanks for this information, i emailed ASUS for this and they...

    ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

    Cadaveca, Do you have any information on the bluetooth/wifi module that is included with this motherboard? I am unable to find any real information on it and im wondering what antenna connector it has and what chipset it uses... really just looking for a data sheet, model number, or...

    My First Build

    Ya, thats what i read. Wonder if there are any similar issues that havent been fixed yet. Ya, ive been contemplating waiting but im leaning more towards the 'E' series due to the increased number of cores and the quad channel memory but Ivy Bridge E doesn't look like it will be released...

    My First Build

    I will definitely be posting pics once i finish planning it and start getting parts. Does anyone know of any issues that the 3930k is experiencing? I just read an article about the 3930k chips "now come with working VT-d functionality." Apparently there was an issue with the virtualization...

    Post your first FAIL

    Yep, the fans hurt I remember when i was much younger and i was watching my father work on his desktop PC. He stepped away and i curiously stuck my finger into the fan thinking that its just a weak plastic fan... ouch Quickly pulled my sliced finger out and covered so he wouldnt know hah

    My First Build

    Hello Everyone, This is my first post and my first PC build. I have been doing a lot of reading over the past month and (surprisingly) just found TechPowerUp.com which, IMO, trumps every other review site i have visited. The in-depth reviews and community on these forums is outstanding...
