    Mysterious c:\mount folder on my SSD

    Does anyone know why this folder exists on my drive? I've only noticed that it's there because of my semi-regular virus scan, which doesn't seem to be able to scan the folder. I didn't make the folder myself, but it seems to contain copies of system files (.dll, .cfg, .mui, etc.). I DID...

    Which Core ix-xxx do i get?

    Upgrade time! I'm looking at a LGA 1156 chip but don't know which to pick. Money isn't an issue but saving some doesn't hurt either. I already have a Xigmatek HDT S1283 that I'll be using instead of the stock cooler. I'm looking at chips like the core i3-530, core i5-650 or the unlocked...

    Best Place to Sell Your Hardware (US)

    Just wondering where people think are the best places to sell their used PC hardware (besides here, of course). I've used Ebay in the past, but recently have had some very bad experiences that make me never want to go there ever again. :banghead: So... what's you favorite site for...

    Mass Effect or Fallout 3 DLC pack? $20

    I'm leaning toward Mass Effect since I've heard quite a few good things about it and I can get it right from Steam. OR There's the Fallout 3 DLC pack but I feel like I've played out the basic game (even with free mods). Just wondering which one you guys would go for.

    Voltage change on Sapphire 4850

    GPUTool says it can't adjust my cards voltages so I'm hoping I can change them in RBE. I think I've got this straight... From reading the tutorial I should be able to: a) adjust the voltage under 03, 07, 08 and 09 to 1.158 b) hit Save BIOS c) Load that BIOS onto the card using...

    Got an email for this, this morning: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10010352 I think this is the only external dual-HD dock on the market but I it seems to be new with no reviews (or at least none I could find with a google search). Newegg doesn't have any...

    Odd stats for 4850

    So I finally put my bro's PC together and noticed that his 4850 (same model) is acting different from mine. His fan stays at 37% speed idle while mine only does 11%. Also his GPU downclocks way lower than mine. While idle, my GPU only goes to 500MHz and my mem doesn't downclock at all...

    4850 or 9800gt Ultimate???

    Fallout 3 is due soon and it'll be time for me to upgrade. I'm trying to keep my budget as low as possible without sacrificing too much performance. I've narrowed things down to these 3 cards. I only noticed the Asus 9800gt Ultimate after reading through a review on Hardware Canucks and...

    RAID 1 Question

    K, here's the situation... My wife's PC (my old Dell) decided to sh*t the bed. After poking around the Dell forums it looks like the motherboard has bit the dust and PC is way out of warranty. Luckily, symptoms were sporadic at first and all essential files are backed up to this PC. *whew*...

    Unlocking pipes in x800se

    Okay, I've been doing quite a bit of research on this and I suppose it's possible but no one's talked about it specificaly at all. This, I'm sure, is due to most Dell purchasers not knowing sh*t about overclocking GPUs. From what I've found only 4 more pipes could be unlocked on my card. 4...
