    RAM OC Stress Test; Which is better HCI's Memtest or Techpowerup's Memtest64?

    The thing with memtest86+ is that ignores some errors HCI's Memtest detects, I don't know about W1z' since it's too new.

    RAM OC Stress Test; Which is better HCI's Memtest or Techpowerup's Memtest64?

    I just bought 32GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport; I tested them with HCI's Memtest (until 100% only), it reported no errors, so i'm cool with it. The thing is HCI's it only allowed me to allocate 2048MB to each instance, so I had to open 15 instances to allocate all of the 30GB of memory I had to...

    MSI Z97-Gaming 5 or Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 ?

    Hello, I'm about to betray the red-brand after spending all my life with them. I was thinking on grab an i5 4670k, and probably do a mild OC to 4 GHz. The idea is to retain the rest of my hardware (R9 280X+16GB RAM+Storage, etc). The mobo that convinced me the most was the MSI Gaming 5, since...

    Hi! Well... the problem is as follows: I own a netbook "Nobi Clamshell 10.1" running the above OS. I created an energy profile so the screen will turn off past 5 minutes of inactivity. The profile works correctly in every session, even if I reboot or turn off the computer. Today, I tried to...

    WiFi connection has a poor signal. Changing the channel and from BGN to N could improve its range?

    It could be the router... anyway... Last night I moved from channel 11 to 1 and it was faster, I think it only was 4 or 5 signals in total, all of which were very poor. Still, it didn't improved range, but it helped with speed and ease of connection... I will keep doing some testing and see if I...

    WiFi connection has a poor signal. Changing the channel and from BGN to N could improve its range?

    encore enhwi n3 But to be honest I don't think a flash is an option, I don't want to screwed it up. Also, it has a pretty neat antenna attached to it. A TP Link, of 9dbi I think.

    WiFi connection has a poor signal. Changing the channel and from BGN to N could improve its range?

    Since like a year now, my brother's house wifi has sucked. It only works in the lower floor, when it used to work in the upper floor, and very well also. During this period of time, his GF modified the wifi connection, because her tablet couldn't connect to it. That's when the troubles begin. I...

    That's what I thought about the CPU, I think it's ok as well. I was thinking in reflowing the mobo an see if that helps, but that would be my last resource.

    ASUS A8V-E SE, RAM slots not working?

    Well, I've had this mobo for my alternate setup for almost 6 or 7 years now. A couple of weeks ago, the screen started to freezing time after time, and since three days ago it didn't POST anymore. I tested every part of the hardware, first, I thought it was the PSU, after that I went and tried...

    Sempron 145 unlocking questions

    Hello, well, I was going to get the following setup: Sempron 145 ASUS M4A78LT Kingston DDR3 @ 1333 2x2GB So, doing some research I read that many Sempron 140 unlock a second core, and I also read that some 145 do the same. I was wondering if the TDP of the processor will be the same...

    Hello, I was considering upgrade my RAM. Right now I have 4 sticks of WP160UX4G from Supertalent, that would be 8 GB @ 1600 MHz CL8. I want to move to 16 GB, but I´m kinda lost between brands and if I should go for 1333 MHz CL7, since most of the models I found at 1600 are CL9. What kind of...

    6950 TF3 OC to 6970 Questions

    I own 2 6950 Twin Frozr III. I was unable to unlock any of them, but I was thinking to OC to reach frequencies of a 6970. So far I played DNF, FEAR3 and BC2. With the first two there was no problem, but with BC2 the system froze @ 6970 clocks. It could be because the OC? I didn't touch the...

    I'm not saying I'll use a 212+, I'm asking for an idea of cooler. Even I'll be satisfied if I reach 4.5 Ghz.

    965 Black Ed. @ 5 GHz. Which cooler should I use?

    I was thinking to push my 965 to 4.5 or 5 GHz, but I don't know which cooler use to keep the temps low. Honestly, I'm not very confident about the 212+ performance in that frequency. I hear suggestions, and if it's possible, approximate temperatures. I own an Antec 1200 with 8 fans.
