    Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 vs Fractal Design Define R3

    Cheers In fact the P193 was already on my list (http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00110262.html). It's also supposed to be very quiet case....

    Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 vs Fractal Design Define R3

    Hi guys, thansk for the replies. In fact I'm not looking to have 'more silence', I'm pleased with my current setup' noise performances ;-) I'm just in the mood for a new PC case and was wondering whether the Fractal would be less, equal or nosier than the Cosmos. Cheers C

    Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 vs Fractal Design Define R3

    Hi Guys, I'm looking for a new very quiet PC case and am very interested by the design of the Fractal Design Define R3 USB3.0 (http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00119535.html). At the moment I have a huge Cosmos 1000 from Cooler Master; the case is very nice and I love it, but I'm in the mood...

    HD4850 CF vs PNY 9800 GX2

    i think this is the most valuable comment ;) (no sarcasm here) after reading all your comments guys (thanks btw for all this :toast:), it seems to me that the two setup are +/- equal. i'm not a bencher, I'm more a gamer and what i like the most is to play with the higher settings possible...

    HD4850 CF vs PNY 9800 GX2

    hi and thanks for your super fast answers ;-) I have no extra coolers on the 4850s, just the out of the box Sapphire ones. @erocker, thanks for the tip, but that's what I want to avoid @mullered, I do not have any CCC profile because the CCC doesn't load anymore. I've tried so many things to...

    HD4850 CF vs PNY 9800 GX2

    Hi guys, I recently bought two ATI 4850 running in crossfire. So far I'm happy with the perfs of these cards except the fact they heat like hell, but for the rest, all is well. Five months ago my company organized a PC plan and I ordered a PNY Nvidia 9800 GX2 1Gb DDR3 at the time. (in the...

    Max temperature for my Asus MB

    Hi all, I recently bought 2 Sapphire H4850 in Crossfire, these are great cards but they heat like hell (+/- 85°C each). So with two of them my case is like an oven now. I'm just kidding it's OK, Asus PC Probe was reporting 41°C all the time, even after 3h of intensive gaming with high...

    Cannot access USB external HDD in NTFS (not visible in Explorer nor in Comp Mgmt)

    hi there, yep don't worry, it's plugged in and everything is connected (as I said, Windows does detect something... The power cable for the HDD is correctly in as well as the IDE flat cable. I've also tried with the HDD jumper on Master or CS, but it made no difference

    Cannot access USB external HDD in NTFS (not visible in Explorer nor in Comp Mgmt)

    Hi All, I recently reinstalled Win XP on a new SATA HDD. Today I bought a Sitecom IDE-USB HDD case (http://www.sitecom.com/faq_result.php?groupid=15&subgroupid=46&productid=301) as I want to get some data back from the IDE disk. I've connected the IDE disk to Sitecom case and then plugged...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    jmicron is indeed enabled in the BIOS. I've also tried with jmicron disabled but it was the same. I had a look on the MB but I don't think there's a jumper to enable/disable jmicron. maybe I'll have to buy a SATA DVD drive.... but IDE should work.... I don't know what's going wrong...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    hi tigger, yeah but I suppose the MB I got was from one of the early shipment as the guy at the IT shop told me it was a very old revision of the BIOS. Anyway, it doesn't excuse the fact that Asus screwed up. ;) Any idea for my IDE drive not recognized problem?

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    hi imperial, thanks for the idea, but unfortunately it didn't work. in the BIOS, the boot order is set to HDD > CDROM > Remov. Media (I've disabled the floppy because I don't have one). I can see my SATA HDD in the BIOS, but no trace of any of my IDE devices (1 HDD and 1 optical drive). When...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    hey there, thanks for the reply. I have a small issue with this new MB I've just installed, I cannot boot from my Plextor IDE CDROM drive. I've also tried with another Plextor IDE DVDROM drive and it's the same story. I can't see any of these drive in the BIOS and even though I've set "ATAPI...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    OK I finally went ot an IT shop and they found what the problem was. They discovered that the BIOS of the MB was too old to support the Intel E8400. Luckily they had a Q6600 (or something like that) available and when they installed their CPU, the MB booted just fine. Only then they were able to...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    I'm sure it works as each time I connect the VGA cable to my IBM laptop the image comes up. But the monitor only have a VGA entry, so, on my problematic PC with the ATi card I'm using a little converter DVi-VGA. Do you think this could make a difference?

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    i'm starting to think it's the case the problem (even though it's impossible). tested 3 MBs, 2 videos cards, 2 CPUS, 4 type of RAM, 2 PSU, always the same issue (everything starts but not video signal)

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    yes it was hooked to the PSU (as the ATI fan was spinning - very fast btw) I've also tried another non 3D Nvidia card and still the same thing (everything starts but no image)

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    Really I don't know what's going on here. I thouht because of the story of hoovering that my PSU was dead. So I replace the Antec one by a Corsair one. Just for a test, I've now connected the MB with the Antec PSU, standing outside the case. Guess what happenned, I pressed the power button...

    Brand new Asus P5E3 Deluxe Wifi-AP @n doesn't boot

    Done for the system specs. This is driving me crazy, I blew up a MB because I hoover the dust (I know bad idea), bought the same model on eBay and it was dead, bought this brand new MB Asus and still nothing. I have a new MB, new CPU, new RAM, new PSU and it still doesn't work. It's madness
