    I am building a filter-sealed PC to control my CNC router, instead of bringing my laptop in the basement and getting it covered in sawdust, overspray, and swarf. Anyways it is a slightly older asus p8h67-i deluxe mini itx and it has a rather slow wireles n adapter on it. "atheros 9002wb-1ng"...

    Never seen this, is it PSU dead, or motherboard.

    I got a new motherboard a while ago and a new power supply more recently, anyways, the power supply worked great on the first day, including multiple reboots. The next day (today) I see the motherboard power light is very dim, so I turned the physical switch off and waited (quite a long...

    Asus Maximus gene v no rear analog audio

    I got this motherboard to replace a flakey gigabyte ga-z77m-ud3 everything went well, and the board seems a lot more solid to use. However the rear audio outputs do not seem to work. I can plug headphones or speakers in the front, and it asks what I plugged in, then it works fine. (And it...

    Mountain mods HTPX tray black.

    It had a folder on it for a while but was not put in a case. I had used one of these to modify a corsair case to fit one SR2, and was going to do do that with another one, but the much more compact Lian Li hammer arrived, so i do not need it. It does not have the PCI slot covers, but apart...

    I have a GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard with a Corsair 650W power supply, both are new. what happens, is i turn it on, and the power cycles infinitely. if i take out the 8 pin power, then it works (but i turn it off quick, to avoid damage)is this due to a defective power supply, or more likely the...

    something strange with project 6900

    I left it running on i7 970@ 4Ghz overnight, and in the morning it was only at 2% yet there were no errors. I have been running other units on here with no trouble at all. the funny thing is FAH tracker says the last 1% only took 24 minutes, but I could clearly see it took 5 hours on the log...

    could P6T SE really handle a i7 970?

    I have this motherboard with an i7 920 on it, but it looks like i will get (given or very cheap anyways) an i7 970. The Asus website says that CPU is supported, but even the i7 920 i have does not overclock much past 3.3 with it, and I have a feeling it will "just about work, but dont expect...

    Was there a server glitch today?

    I have 16 assorted clients running and I had 4 time periods with no results today, usually there are at most 2 in a row, (especially since 3 of the clients are GPU) looking at the clients i can monitor here some of them definitely sent work without errors before those times.
