    Sabertooth Z77 with >2 sticks of ram won't work!

    So I ordered another pair of the SAME ram just to be sure since timings were slightly different. The new set also does not work. (both sticks memtested) I turned on XMP and set them to both PC3-1600 and PC3-1333 and increased VCCSA slightly along with PCH. Still does not work! CPUID sees...

    Sabertooth Z77 with >2 sticks of ram won't work!

    Hi guys, I've been running the Z77 with 2x4gb for a couple of years now fine. Recently, I bought another 2x4gb to add to it. Same model ram, I think slightly different timings but nothing big. The motherboard won't utilize either stick in the 2nd channel. It just picks up the Channel 1 8gb...

    How would I amplify this cable into my home?

    Hi guys, I would like to amplify the signal coming into my home since I'm now using Cetons using a +15 dB amplifier I already have. I checked out my box outside and would like a little guidance on how to install this amplifier. I'm not sure what kind of cable that is running into the...

    Saving files from dying MBP

    I tried that but no good. I think the problem is pretty deeply rooted and won't even boot so pressing T does nothing. The system simply powers on. This vid shows the exact problem I have: Found a thread on the apple forum earlier and it didn't sound...

    Saving files from dying MBP

    I have a 2008 MBP that is biting the dust. I have a dead nvidia 8600 GPU so I can't get any display. The HD is fine, but the graphics are not. Before I take it to the store and explore possible repairs (if any, wouldn't be surprised if it's time to buy a new MBP) I want to try to retrieve the...

    Can't CTRL+ALT+DEL to log in to WHS computer with any keyboard

    It's really weird. I've tried several keyboards with both USB and P/S2 or whatever but once WHS boots, I cannot login. The computer recognizes the keyboard during boot and I can get into BIOS fine. But once WHS loads up, no more keyboard. I CAN use a mouse though. To top it off, the dumb...

    New Win7 Install, no permissions now on storage HD

    This is weird and I've searched and searched and could not find a solution. I have 2 HDs, an OS drive and a storage 1TB drive that has programs and files on it. I just upgraded the OS drive to a 120gb SSD and figured I would grab some important folders off the 1TB and then reformat it, clearing...

    Can anything help with FRAPS fps?

    Hi guys, I have a question about the fps drop when using fraps. Basically, what is the main hardware reason it drops fps? I'm not sure there's much I can do to help my situation, but maybe there is. I record WoW raids at 2560x1600 resolution on the rig in my comment and I drop down to 25-30...

    Wireless antenne question

    Thanks guys! The adapter in my computer is N (D-Link DWA-552 Xtreme N) but the router is not (Linksys WRT54GL). Does N have a stronger signal? Should I consider getting an N router? Out of curiosity, if I got something powerful like this...

    Wireless antenne question

    Hi guys, I was wondering about this antenna: Can you put this on the wireless router itself to boost signal broadcast? Or is it strictly for the receiving adapter? Also, would there be any...

    Weird powered USB hub problem

    Okay, so I got a second powered USB 2.0 hub of a different manufacturer because I thought the first one I had was broken. Apparently, it's something I'm doing wrong or elsewhere. I have both hubs plugged into the wall and computer. When I have my mouse and keyboard plugged into them, they come...

    delete please

    Welcome to Hard Forum! I believe a post like this (called Want to Buy) would belong in the For Sale/Trade forum with a "WTB" tag at the beginning of the subject. That's quite an old beast there, I remember when I got a 1.25ghz athlon and thought it was the fastest thing ever. Running...

    From 37" Westy to 30" 2560x1600, DONT HESITATE!

    Not too sure about the movies yet, but I do a lot of photoshop work along with CAD. It's really far superior on the 30" than the 37" I'm finding.
