I'm working a build where I'm going sleeve mad. I was about to pick up some sata cables from FrozenCPU and then I realized a have dozens of red sata cables laying around.....
Thoughts? ..... this was a test run.
On my HX520, the purple (+5 VDC Standby Voltage) wire was twisted with a ground. Is this for a reason? The way I'm sleeving, it would be better if they weren't twisted. I just don't want to screw something up.
I'm looking to dive into some basic water cooling. This is pretty much going to be an eye candy build.
There will be no dedicated GPU; CPU is a A8-3870k. Socket FM1. Colors are going to be UV green and purple, so I'd like to aim there for tubing. I'd like to keep it under $200.
I haven't really played with AMD, I know BD is pretty much a flop.
I'm building a rig for the mancave that will basically be web browsing, 1080p playback, and light gaming.... pretty much Civ5 and Airline Tycoon 2.
I don't game much, basically none until I bought Civ5, so macro's aren't a must. It would be nice to have some programmable keys though.
I was thinking the MX brown's would be best, but I'm not against the blues.
Currently, I'm on the verge of buying the blackwidow ultimate, I really like...
I going to be building a Photoshop box and figured I would take advantage of CUDA plug-ins.
The main goal was ultra quiet, since this will also pull duty for living room movie playback. As I'm new to anything nVidia, and from what I've read, they run really hot and loud. I've also noticed...
Current rig is in my sig.
I'm up grading because I got a 2600k on the cheap from work.
I'll be running the 2600k, a mobo that I have yet to pick up, the SSD's and 4 x 4GB Ripjaws.
Besides browsing the net and some light excel work, the computer does 2 things: 1080p playback on a 42"...
I have a Pentium D 805 box that I'm swapping cases on for the sole purpose of 1080p playback.
Which LP card is up to the task? Lots of reviews that seem to knock every card out there.
Trying to keep the price <$50.
I don't game, so I'm not up on the newest things. Is it possible to extend the desk top to 3 monitors with the new ATI cards? Not stretch, but have 3 distinct desktops.
Currently I have a monitor on DVI, one on VGA, and my living room TV on HDMI. Currently, if someone wants to watch a...
I currently use this switch: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156250
With all the additional things on the network, I need more, so I picked up this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156293
My question is, if I still use the 5 port in my...
Has anyone received their code yet? Yesterday I got an email that said my code would be ready today. Today I got an email that said I'll receive an email tomorrow that will tell me how I can get my code.
Trying to figure out what I'm going to go with, OS wise.
I have W7x64, Vista x64, WHS v1, Server 2008(non R2, unless I can update from the original), or something freeware/linux based all available to me.
Hardware as follows: Athlon x2 3600, 2GB DDR2 800, MSI 785GTM-E45 , Intel PRO/GT...
I'm getting ready to finally put a whs box together and had a couple of questions.
I was just about to pull the trigger on a pair of WD20EARS, but read that there were some problems using these. Is that still the case? Whats the best recommended 2TB's?
Also, I bought my WHS over a year...

I haven't seemed to able to find a lot of info for the i7 1156 platform(a ton on the 1366), especially at [H].
Most of the threads on the other forums, people are running close to 1.4v vcore for 4GHz and I really don't have any interest in pushing it that far.
Also, what is the QPI link...
I wasn't sure if I should post this here, but I have seen a lot of threads looking for these.
MC has a decent one. It's a BYTECC Bracket-25350. $3.49
I'm not sure how much shipping is, I picked mine up.
Ok, board is a ASUS P7P55D Deluxe.
I have 6 ports controlled by the P55 chipset, 2 JMicron 322(which I guess use drive expert), and 1 JMicron 363(which I probably won't use).
Here's the dilemma: I have 5 drives and 2 optical(DVD-RW & B-Ray). I have 4 storage drives that I am using and...
I really want to try one out, but $$ are tight on this build. I don't game at all. I use multiple video encoding programs, such as handbrake, dvdflick, dvd shrink, dvd fab, and winavi; all of which would be installed on the drive. I also use office ultimate and adobe light room. I already use a...
I'm doing a rebuild and currently have a single WD3200AAKS (single platter) for my OS. I was wondering if I should add another in raid 0 or get a newer faster drive? No SSD, can't afford it.
mobo = ASUS P7P55D Deluxe
