    Question on wire routing

    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.

    Build my loop.

    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. This is...

    Recommend me a mechanical keyboard under $150.

    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...

    Passive cooling on a GTX460/560

    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...

    New Build Advice (GPU)

    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"...

    Haven't really searched yet. I pulled 4*2gb and replaced with 2*4gb. Everywhere shows 8, but Windows says only half is usable. CPUz shows single channel also.

    Which ATI low profile card?

    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...

    Noob question

    I run uTorrent on my main rig and had a question. If I ran it in a VM would I be able to assign rules to it via QoS? Or will it obtain the same IP as the host? I do have dual NIC's if that matters.

    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...

    Which SATA ports to use?

    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...

    Is 30gb really enough?

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...
