    Replace Router or not?

    Seems like a good deal, the need for dual band really depends on how congested the 2.4ghz channel is, check how many APs you can see when trying to connect to wifi, if more than, lets say 10, then you should invest in dual band. Good luck :)

    ASROCK AM3 970 Extreme 3 and Kingston Hyper X 16GB (2x8): only 8 gigs available to W7

    Make sure that your RAM is completely seated in the socket. I've had a situation before where one stick of memory wouldn't detect but still boots up.

    AMD FX "Vishera" Processors Launch Pricing Surprises

    Oh okay, thanks. I would expect much lower from a lower voltage part though. Isn't leakage the other way around? Higher leakage = higher voltage?

    Updating my config (need advices)

    what are you using your PC for? If you're not encoding videos or editing photos, you should probably get a 3570k and this memory kit looks pretty good to me if you can find it: Crucial Ballistix 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRA... i don't think there are 16gb dimms either, so that's probably...

    Overclock reverts to stock clocks after resuming from sleep.

    Yeah, I'm using S3 sleep, I installed Windows on another hard drive to be sure it wasn't the motherboard and it ended up working, so I just reinstalled windows. Might have changed a setting, but ehh. Too much work troubleshooting, don't really have much on this computer anyway lol. :o

    Overclock reverts to stock clocks after resuming from sleep.

    Okay, so I swapped the battery from another known working computer and still the same result. I searched google and found something similar on another site: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?PHPSESSID=b3uk97fgjtf4k6prk1t1o1o6f1&topic=9237.15 Except I don't have a core i7. Maybe there's a...

    Overclock reverts to stock clocks after resuming from sleep.

    Yeah, I have to go to the store and pick up a new battery when I have time, hopefully it's not the board. I don't think it's the overclock that's the problem though. It used to be at 3.3Ghz, now running at 2.9Ghz. Can't think of anything else to try. I hope it's only the battery, I don't have...

    Yeah, I did all of my overclocking in the bios, this problem only happened recently.

    Overclock reverts to stock clocks after resuming from sleep.

    Thanks, I already tried enabling HPET, but it didn't work. I'll see if I can get a hold of a fresh CR2032 battery. I'll let you guys know how it goes. What's HPET anyway? I looked it up but I don't understand what it does. edit: I pulled out the battery and it measures ~3.1v, do you think...

    Overclock reverts to stock clocks after resuming from sleep.

    Okay, so I don't know if this happened recently or a long time ago, but I noticed a few days ago and was trying to solve the problem myself. I have an AsRock P45x3 Deluxe motherboard. Never really had any problems with it. I did notice it was running a bit sluggish after resuming from sleep, but...

    SPDTool: Read, Edit and Flash your Memory's SPD

    Nah, it was part of a dual channel kit, so i can pull the SPD off the other stick. The problem is, whenever I put the bad one into a laptop, it won't boot. I tried moving the sticks to a different slot, but that didn't work either. It's a Samsung DDR2, so the DDR SPD probably won't work. Edit...

    SPDTool: Read, Edit and Flash your Memory's SPD

    WHOOPS. I think I accidentally saved my 2GB spd to my 1GB stick. So basically, I have a 1GB stick that thinks it's a 2GB stick. :ohwell: How do I fix it? lol Thanks guys!

    AMD Catalyst 11.5 WHQL, 11.5a Hotfix Driver Suite Released

    hmmm... after installing the new drivers, I can hear sound, but youtube videos are only green? maybe it's just me. I'll try reinstalling it to see if it solves the problem. Edit: looks like it was just a bad install somehow, the reinstall fixed it. woot wei went up by .1 lol
