    Lots of 4pin Molex

    I need to replace the PSU in my server, which has 3x SuperMicro 5in3 hotswap bays powered by 2x 4pin molex connectors each. So 6x 4pin molex connectors pushing 15x mechanical drives. The server also has a SSD (another to be added soon) and 2x m1015 cards, 2500k, 16GB RAM. Any suggestions...

    LogMeIn No Longer Free

    http://blog.logmein.com/it-management/logmein-changes I have a feeling that a lot of people are going to be jumping ship once they see the annual pricing model. Pricing: 2 PCs - $99/yr 5 PCs - $250/yr 10 PCs - $450/yr I use OpenVPN/SSH for my home network, but LogMeIn was very convenient for...

    M14xR2 Dead (again) - need replacement

    So my Alienware M14xR2 took a dump today and won't boot (power button does nothing). I can't even get into blind flash mode w/ the end-key and connecting power trick. edit: Ordered another motherboard, hoping for the best. Motherboard #3 for this system. Stay away from Alienware/Dell.

    Manually specify bezel compensation resolution?

    Is there a way to manually specify the fixed resolution? I've always used 6048x1080, and have been happy with that. For some reason CCC is now defaulting to 6336x1080 which has screwed up all of my custom config files for games. I know that you can do the triangle adjustment thing, but...

    Router for high ambient temperatures?

    I'm setting up a router at a vacation home that will experience some high ambient temperatures (probably ~100-deg F during the summer) due to not running the AC when not occupied and was looking for some recommendations. DD-WRT would be nice to have. I want to keep it up 24/7 so that I can...

    Win8: Network Meter Gadget Alternative?

    Anyone have any recommendations for a replacement for the network meter gadget from windows 7 that works in windows 8? It doesn't necessarily need to be a widget that's always open, but I need some way to check and see how much bandwidth a certain machine is sucking down. I've been looking...

    650m Drivers?

    Anyone know where I can find current 650m drivers? The card isn't listed on the drop down menu on nv's site, and is not listed in the release notes as being supported by the 301.42 drivers. I'm getting pretty bad performance in Diablo 3 on my laptop (m14xr2) and am thinking it's a driver issue...

    Zotac Ion Cooling?

    I noticed my cpu was idling around 80C. I am using the included fan, but case ventilation is not great. I'm going to add two more 60mm fans on the back to vent some of the heat out. Right now with the case cover off I'm seeing idle temps in the 65C range -- I would still consider these too...
