    i5 2500K (4.8) and Asus Maximus V Gene3 advice

    Fans are the stock ones that came with it, in a pull configuration (needed due to space issues in my case). They're controlled by the pump of the H100 so I hear them spin up and down as the load/temp changes/ I'm not sure what setting PLL Overvoltage is on this particular mobo (EFI setup)...

    i5 2500K (4.8) and Asus Maximus V Gene3 advice

    Well, I was on an AMD X4 955 BE for the last two years, and I didn't overclock it much (the mITX board from Asus), and now I'm rocking an i5 2500K and the board in the title (mATX). It's running at 4.8 right now; I did have it at 4.7 for a bit, and I COULD do 5.0, but my concern is temps. I'm...

    Help me buy a solid wireless repeater... trying to network across the street

    1. You're running copper wire exposed (thin plastic coating isn't really an outdoor coating) outside. It gets wet, it gets hit by stray voltage or lightning, everything is fried. 2. Distance isn't just about the max, which is 100m (328 ft). Being a long outdoor run, you'll get interferance...

    Upgrading My Home Office with rackmount Server and Desktop.

    Subbed for a damn awesome build! I've wanted to do a rack setup like this for awhile but could never afford the parts!

    Help me buy a solid wireless repeater... trying to network across the street

    I'm not an expert in Wireless, but I am studying for the CWNP exam... First thing I thought of was line-of-sight issues. Where are the two routers located? Second was the antennas. Directional antennas with a clear LOS would probably help a lot. Hope that helps!

    Should AMD consider bowing out of the cpu market?

    Itanic is great... if you can optimize your application for it's custom compiler in order to actually user it's parallel architecture. That's it's problem.

    RemoteFX set up, working out some bugs!

    The "server" is a Lenovo T410S laptop. 4GB DDR3, i5 M420, NVS 310M and a Kingston 160GB SSD, and I have it connected directly to my desktop with Gigabit Ethernet. I have the feeling its just the low-end GPU that's the issue but I'm not sure.

    RemoteFX set up, working out some bugs!

    Hey everyone, I just got a little Hyper-V/RemoteFX setup going at work, but I'm having a bit of an issue with it. As soon as I enabled Aero in the guest, it started getting laggy. And by laggy, I mean I drag a window around and it's in slow-mo. I'm watching GPUz in the host machine and the...

    U2412HM is 16:9 !

    Because 1080p (1920x1080) is a standard. Monitor resolutions like 16:10 have never been standardized, so they're dying out as more and more 16:9 panels are being made for TVs, etc. It was inevitable.

    D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router and Photo Frame - $89.99 - 1 Day Only

    It just looks like a programmable LCD that they ended up running with a photo app. You could probably mod it to do whatever you like. This thing looks sweet, but a little limited in storage space (one 2.5" drive, really?).

    Playstation - "We're not getting back online until we feel safe"

    That's very short-sighted. Sony did this to themselves. Did you notice how "hackers" didn't target the PS3 for the first ~3 years of its existence? That's because Sony let the hackers do what they wanted: install Linux on it to fuck around! Take that away, and you have a lot of people with the...

    Most failure prone PC component

    I've gone through (either due to outright death or simply obsoleteness of features) more Motherboards than any other component, so I voted for that. But, overall I've only ever had one mobo, one PSU, one CPU, and a set of RAM go.

    Stupid Criminal of the Day

    I should clarify: by "already safe", I mean "in the company of someone who isn't going to hurt them", which is usually a parent in a divorce case (I read something like 80% of AAs are for kids taken by one divorced parent from the other).

    Stupid Criminal of the Day

    It all comes back to the media. The media creates an atmosphere of fear about everything, which makes people scared, and more likely to see these things, so they become more reported. Just look at what happened with the Amber Alert bullshit: NOTHING except a bunch of paranoia; it's never...

    Stupid Criminal of the Day

    But not his dignity or reputation. Those are gone forever. It should be illegal to even mention a defendant's name until the trial is over. Fuck the press. They show time and time again that they're only interested in inciting people, not actual justice or respect for the defendant.
