    Gaming Issue

    Update, I pulled the plug on an EVGA 850 G2. Got a 9.9 on JonnyGuru, and problem solved. No restarts and everything is running beautifully. Thanks all.

    Gaming Issue

    Been playing around with it, and if I hold the framerate at 60, it won't crash. If I let it go, it heats up to about 69, then crashes. I know it's an older card, but it's always handled everything so far beautifully. 69c should not be too much right? Is this still a power supply issue?

    Gaming Issue

    I was just testing with OCCT and it crashed almost immediately with the graphics and psu test. So, yes, most likely PSU. Upsetting cause this rig is only a couple years old. I don't have another to test, but have been getting random crashes for a few weeks now, hence the reinstall. Looking...

    Gaming Issue

    Hi all. Long time since I posted, but I'm having an issue with some of my Steam games. Mainly it is Skyrim Special Edition. I start a new game, and during the initial opening wagon run, my PC will shut down and restart. I've noticed it does the same thing with Bioshock Remastered, but...

    Android Streaming boxes

    Anybody try or have one of these? Like the SkystreamX or the like? Any good? I like using XBMC for my media, but would like to stream netflix, hulu, and amazon prime as well. These look like just the thing....

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    Power supply was 80 shipped. One review I read said it had really solid voltage regulation. That's why I got it. There are better ps's out there, but I've seen more expensive ones where the voltage was all over the place ( Thermaltake).

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    Yes, I may overclock. The power supply is a Corsair GS700. It got a good review. I'll put one drive in the new system and one drive in the HTPC. And yes, the motherboard was the Z87 Extreme3

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    My budget is around 1500 give or take. I was up around 2 grand with a core i7 extreme 2100 but thought that was overkill. I'm in the U.S. Up in New England. I could reuse my old case and power supply but it's going on 7 years and don't know if the power supply will last. They're both from Ultra...

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

Basically all around media center. And now, the specs; Corsair 16 gig 1600 vengeance ram Asus z87...

    I had a similar issue with mine. I know you said you swapped hdds. The firmware for the ps3 is stored on both the NAND and the hdd. If either one is corrupted you get no signal, not even in safe mode. I swapped out the hdd for my old 60 gig original hdd and thankfully it worked. However, I...

    What iPhone 5 cases are you guys using?

    Otter box commuter. Less bulky than the defender and good edge protection. Dropped my phone once, glad I had it. http://www.amazon.com/OtterBox-Commuter-Series-Case-iPhone/dp/B00974L1T4/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1364042017&sr=8-7&keywords=iphone+5+case

    Anybody switch from iPhone 5 to Android?

    I just did the opposite. I switched from android to iOS. I love the iPhone 5. I've been an avid android user since the original droid incredible and just my opinion, but android has become more fractured, and with the phones getting bigger and bigger, I just felt like I wanted a phone that...
