    I think I will have to break my spreadsheets down when I run into this issue again with 16GB on my lappy. The reason I use excel is because when I started this little project I had no idea I would just keep going with it untill it grew so large, I started off so small and excel was easy to...

    So Lenovo has come upon an amazing idea

    Very smart, hopefully it becomes some sort of standard so that you don't get completely limited when it comes to which GPU you can stick in there.

    Looking for: Laptop with 16GB RAM, or expandable to that

    yeah I've seen those G models but cheaper is better, that's why I didn't jump on those macbooks or Lenovo mentioned earlier.. I found a forum called notebookreview and I see people with cheaper laptops popping in 16GB and they're working fine, now I'm just debating whether I should go with a...

    Looking for: Laptop with 16GB RAM, or expandable to that

    You'd think manufacturers would be more clear about their machines specs and capabilities, most say max = 8GB.

    Looking for: Laptop with 16GB RAM, or expandable to that

    realy? I've tried all the customizations on the Dell website and it won't give me a 16GB option.. and I can't find a way to check maximum memory specs on their super unfriendly website

    Trying i7-870 OC using "Offset" method for vCore, need some help

    Hi all, I'm following lots of guides and info from forums to do my first oc, the method I want to follow somewhat is what others call "dynamic overclock" where you use a lot of the power saving features, although I personally want to skip out on c3 and c6. So apparently one of the things...

    i7 860/870 OC guide for newbies?

    Hey guys, I'm probably bad at the search function but I can't find an i7 OC guide for the lga1156 chips which I would really like instead of the other Quad guides because this is my very first time doing this. I know there are only minor differences but I am just learning the terms and the...

    Temps to expect with i7-870?

    I'm trying to find some temp info for reference for the i7-870. Reason being I put my rig together today (almost) after work but I'm real tired and I'm not sure if I didn't mess on the TIM application and HS mount, I'm almost sure I lost contact for a second when centering but still screwed it...

    How do ASUS mobos control case fans?

    Ugh, wasted my money on two 3pin y splitters then, I'm too cheap to go with a proper fan controller, not too fond of the idea of controlling fans with knobs like with the cheapie controllers on a machine that'll do a gazillion calculations a second.. seems kinda dumb. I've bought low RPM...
