    Better non-rattling fans for H100i V2?

    I purchased an H100i V2 last week for my main rig to replace a rather old H100 (currently moved to an overclocked Phenom II X6 system) that I picked up used and without any fans, and I used cheap $4 Rosewill 2000 RPM case fans in push-pull for a year and a half on it until one of the sleeve...

    Fixed a Gigabyte GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 (corrupt master BIOS)

    I wanted to share my experience with repairing the Gigabyte motherboard listed in the title of this thread as I saw on Newegg that many people also had the same problem with this board and thought it was actually dead after anywhere from 1-8 months of use. Anyway, my father knocked on my door...

    GPU-Z 0.8.5 BSOD on Pentium N3700 SoC

    Hello, I bought an HP Pavilion x360 11-k062nr a few weeks ago, and have not been able to run GPU-Z on it in either Windows 8.1 or 10 x64 without getting a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD referencing GPU Z.sys. Please let me know what other information you may need?

    [WTB][US] WTB Corsair H100 LGA-2011 Mounting Hardware

    EDIT 9/29/14: ThE_MaD_ShOt hooked me up with a set of mounting hardware, thanks a ton! Hello all, Since I bought my H100 used and it only had LGA 115x mounting hardware, does anyone have the LGA 2011 mounting hardware that they aren't using? I think I just need the short mounting studs as it...

    Windows folder corruption proliferation?

    I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8.1 Pro Preview a while ago, and everything seemed fine at first. I haven't used the laptop much since then (it has been running nearly 24/7 though), but now I'm having some problems with folder corruption/writing. Windows updates no longer install because the...

    [FS][US] ASUS Nexus 7 32GB Android tablet

    Hi folks, Up for sale today is my trusty ASUS/Google Nexus 7 32GB tablet. I purchased it in December 2012 at my local OfficeMax and have gently used this tablet, which is still in great condition. I'm selling it only because I purchased a new Nexus 7 today, and I no longer need my current...

    AIO liquid cooler suggestions

    After fussing with my Hyper 212 EVO again because it "pops loose" from its retention mechanism slightly every time I move my computer, causing my computer to BSOD or blank screen like crazy due to high CPU temps, I'm contemplating going with one of these AIO water coolers to keep my 3770K...

    Dead SSD?

    Today, I got my new Accelero Xtreme 7970, new fans and controller and I also moved my PC from my Rosewill Challenger-U3 to my NZXT Source 210 due to foreseen clearance issues. Booted up my PC on integrated graphics (because the thermal glue is still curing on the 7950), and Windows booted up...

    HD 7950 aftermarket cooling suggestions?

    Hey guys, My XFX DD HD7950 is driving me up the wall with its atrocious cooling solution that seems to be becoming worse. The card has been running in the high 80s with a modest overclock (1050/1400, stock volts) and as I played more Far Cry 3 the temperature has been seemingly getting higher...

    [FS][US] Jstn7477's FS Thread

    Hey guys, I've made the decision to start letting go of some older stuff (that I hope people may be interested in) instead of hanging onto it indefinitely. As of 12/26/2012 this thread is a work in progress, and I plan on adding some parts combos very soon when I tear down the systems for...

    HD 7950 constantly sleeping/waking when PC is idle.

    Hey guys, Is there any way to stop this seemingly endless GPU "power cycling" when I've left my computer unattended with no GPU load and the screen has turned off? I'm using Windows 8 (yes, the problem happens in 7 too before anyone points their finger) and this problem is annoying because...

    New Steam Beta feature for SSD users?

    Not sure if anyone has noticed this or if I have been out of the loop as I haven't bought any new games in a long time, but I am opted into the Steam beta client and I just noticed this today: Looks like we might now be able to install the actual Steam program on our small SSDs and keep...

    AC power help (concerning active PFC PSUs + high USA voltages)

    Hey guys, My parents are considering moving their business to another facility, which means my computers will move there. Both the new facility and our current one have 3 phase electrical distribution, and I've been contemplating getting my computers off of the lame 120v 60Hz lines to get...

    [WTB][US] Decent 2.5" IDE laptop drive

    EDIT: Found one elsewhere, but may still look for another if the offer is good. :) Hey guys, Looking for a (cheap, if possible) 2.5" IDE laptop hard drive. I'd prefer that it is in good working order and isn't one of those rubbish 30GB drives that only do like 15MB/s. My HP dv5000 currently...

    HD7950 random black screen/vertical stripes.

    Hello everyone, My 2 week old XFX DD HD7950 that I've posted about before is beginning to cause me some major issues, it seems. I was getting a black screen freezing issue (usually only at night when the computer was unattended for some odd reason) that locks up my PC solid and I have to...

    HD7950 performance issues

    I received my new XFX DoubleD HD7950 two days ago, and promptly installed the Catalyst 12.6 Beta drivers. Played some TF2 with the card at stock which at first was flickering badly on the bottom inch of the screen, but once I set the resolution to native and such it went away. I then decided to...

    Fan advice?

    Hey everyone, I haven't really ever cared about quality fans in the past, and I usually just end up buying whichever ones are cheapest. However, my home computer has been driving me nuts recently (well, really since I built it almost a year ago) with all the damn fan noise, and moving my...

    Traded to Brandonwh64! Hey guys, After thinking about it for a while, I've decided I want to sell my Sapphire HD 6950 2GB and put some money towards a newer card. I bought this card brand new in late October 2011 when I built my Sandy Bridge machine, and we've had some great times. It's a...

    7950 or 670 to upgrade 6950 2GB? Should I?

    Hey guys, I apologize if there have been threads before this one about this subject, but I have been seriously considering a new card if I can sell my old one. I've heard different pros and cons about each, but I want to know if anything has really changed in the last month or two. What...

    Getting AMD A75 FCH drivers?

    How do I go about getting them on the AMD website these days? Just built an A6 based system for someone and I need to find the stupid drivers, but the morons at AMD have decided to not include FCH drivers in the Catalyst APU drivers and all the chipset drivers have been moved somewhere else, so...

    Intel SRT: Is this config possible?

    Hi all, I'm looking into getting an SSD for my nice PC. I wanted to get a 120GB model (probably Corsair Force 3) to use for Windows on one partition and Intel SRT on the other to cache my 2TB games drive (which is currently my only HDD). Is it possible? My plan was to split the 120GB SSD in...

    i7-2600K no longer working right?

    Hi all, Today, I decided to play with some options in my BIOS more so than previously before. I wanted to try out the integrated graphics for whatever reason and see how far they would OC and how they performed in general. After doing that for a while, I began using my 6950 again, and decided...
