    Fresh Windows Install! Need some advice.

    So, basically, I have two questions: First, I'd like to get a couple of good USB 3.0 sticks to use for installation media, any recommendations on which one may be fastest and most reliable? Second, I would kind of like to do this tonight, so I don't have to wait for my USB sticks to come in...

    HX100W wiring...

    I've got the HX100W. I got it second-hand and It came with two SATA one molex, and some PCI-E cables. One of the SATA cables and the one molex cable are not for this power supply--they just shut my system down immediately after power-on. After much confusion (years ago) I discovered that the...

    New watercooling setup!

    I've been looking at getting the cheapest watercooling setup for my CPU. I can some good speeds with my new mobo, but my CPU temps are hurting.... I've got the 'low profile' RAM to match up with a 420mm radiator. But I just need the rest. I do WCG crunching 9-10 hours a day while I'm at work...

    I feel kinda weird inside...

    Well, I've gone and done it guys. Couldn't wait a second longer. I've switched to Intel. The last Intel chip I've ever owned was a 180Mhz Pentium Pro. Well, actually I had a Pentium M laptop that I used for astro-photography mostly. Overclocked them both. Sicne then, it's been K6-2, Athlon...

    Having a direct link to the forum post in news articles.

    This has been bothering me for YEARS now, time to bring it up. I seem to remember that, back in the day, when I was in a news article, I could click the "Discuss" link and it would take me to the forum post. Do I have to forever be clicking on the forums tab, and then finding the posting in...

    Phenom II x2 555 on a GA-990FX-Gaming overclocking/unlocking

    Hey, I recently upgraded my Gigabyte MA-770T-UD3 to a the GA-990FX-Gaming. I'm having trouble unlocking the cores and keeping the system stable. I had the four cores unlocked, on my old board, for years... running at 3800Mz, never an issue. If I try unlocking on my new board, even after...

    Small amp or reciever for computer speakers...?

    Ok. One thing I'm not really into is audio. That Ship set sail and sunk for me some time back before I was born. Any audio works for me, I've got some OLD 2.1 speakers and they are fine for me--even though one channel doesn't quite work right. My wife, however likes better sound quality...

    OCZ Vendetta 2 @ t-break

    OK, I decided to go over to t-break, and look at this review of the Vendetta 2. It left me bewildered. According to their charts, the Intel stock cooler is BETTER than ALL THREE other coolers reviewed (Vendetta 2, Thermalright Ultra-120, and Asus Triton 81) at stock voltage. Is this even...

    OK, I got this new microphone headset... the one like telemarketers use, with green and pink plug. Unplugged my old mic (the OLD ones, like the first computer microphones... back when they were still called microPHONES), plugged the new one in, and I go to UN-mute my microphone volume, and it...

    Tom's CPU Cooler Charts...

    Well, I read the first part of this article, and just now the second part. It seems to me that either Intel's new CPUs run too hot, or Tom's is doing something horribly wrong with their tests. They don't make any mention of overclocking the QX6850 tested with all of the coolers, so how is...

    Crucial Ballistix 2x1gb on tforce 550

    Ok, I finally got 2gb of DDR2 800. Pretty decent deal on Ballistix at newegg for 65 bucks shipped. Part number BL2KIT12864AA804. They are rated to run 4-4-4-12@2.2v, but my motherboard goes 1.8-2.1v in bios, and has a jumper to switch to 2.4v... nothing in between 2.1-2.4v though I guess. I...

    virus from cpuz?

    Well, somehow, AVG never detected this before. It's ran like 20 full system scans, then on the 21st scan, it found a virus on the cpuz files. CPU-z's been there for like a year or something... now all the sudden it turns into a virus? Or what do you guys think happened?

    steam's backup utility

    Well, I'm trying to backup TF2 with steam's built in backer-upper. It gets about halfway thru the backup, and starts to SLOWWWWWW down, to about 1mb per second..... This is very lame. I sit and wait for it to CRAWL from 4gb to 6gb (the TF2 download was less than TWO GB!!) and it seems like...
