    To Buy a NAS or To Build a NAS

    Thanks for the quick response. To clarify some things. The Intel 775 machine is my HTPC + Dual Dual PCIe TV + Torrent + Media server. The unit is hooked up to my LED TV via HDMI and Bose 5.1. Currently, it is running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with an E6850 Core 2 Duo coupled with 4gb of DDR2-800...

    To Buy a NAS or To Build a NAS

    Hi All, For about the past year, I have been looking at adding a NAS to my wired gigabit home network. I am looking at a 2 or 4 bay NAS. A unit that I can expand the capacity as needed. (ie. 3x500GB ->3x1TB without having to offload the data) I have been inclined to buy a NAS off the shelf...

    5870 v1

    the heatsink the card was far from dirty. I know just manually set the fan to 50% speed before I game. Seem to correct the problem. I guess I may invest in a Cool It systems video cooler.

    5870 v1

    maybe tearing isn't the correct term then..... i was getting random geometries rendered. So i exited, went into the CCC and cranked the fan.... then she BSOD-ed shortly after.

    5870 v1

    Is there anything inherently wrong with the ATi 5870 V1 cards. I have had this card for about a year now, and tonight was the first time I had video tearing + BSOD after playing Dead Space for a few hours. Currently, nothing is overclocked on my system.

    Server stutters video when streaming

    How fast is the ram actually running at? clocks? I think that processor/memory bandwidth is the problem. That E4400 out of the box does 2.0ghz @ 800mhz FSB. Overclocking to 2.4GHz I'm guessing puts you close to a 1066Mhz FSB, but that 2mb cache is probably another limitation. I run an E6850...

    Can I Put 800MHz In A 533MHz Board?

    there is a chance you could have stability issues if the ram doesn't like to be downclocked.

    Can I Put 800MHz In A 533MHz Board?

    The board will down clock the ram. The maximum supported speed via chipset/FSB is 667Mhz.

    CoolIT Systems Introduce the World’s First Range of Specialised ALC

    The video card cooling solutions are through their Omni line. See as how this article pertains to the ECO, I kind of understand why they don't have the 5870 cooled.

    Drobo...or other NAS

    I have been looking for an external storage solution to my HTPC that I can expand on the fly, or as needed. My HTPC is an E6850, 4GB of ddr2-800 with 2 dual tuners, and with the plans to upgrade from Vista to windows 7 to be able to record 4 channels as once. The HTPC is also my...

    Watercooling (Experts Required)

    I have lots of bad luck with Koolance products. I find if the liquid loop builds any pressure as the water heats up, there product leaked. I have not bought anyting from them since my dual 3870X2 build. Paulieg is correct. Koolance released a revision on a couple of their 1366 (i7) socket...

    AMD Working on Black Edition Phenom II X6 Part

    this could be a hard pressed comparison. On one hand you have AMD, where you have to buy a mobo with coincided chipset to run nvidia or ATi Multi-GPU, with an unlocked cpu, and save cash on your build. Or, you buy an X58, pay through the nose for an unlocked CPU, but you can switch between...
