    AMD takes yet another market share blow

    I predicted by the end of the year AMD would be at 20%. It appears it's below that well before the end of the year. Houston, we got a problem. :( Source: http://www.tweaktown.com/news/47105/amds-gpu-market-share-drops-again-even-release-fury/index.html

    EVGA Precision resets clocks during game

    I was feeling bored lately so I did a slight OC on my EVGA GTX 660 SC which is already factory OC'ed to begin with. Default: 1045Mhz GPU and 1500Mhz Memory OCed Attempts: +30 then +20 with a +150 on the Memory I noticed something new that I haven't seen before. While playing a game...

    So I think I fried something

    SOLVED: Turned out my top GPU fried from Folding@Home 24/7 for the past 1 1/2 years and the MOBO was smart enough to realize I ain't giving power to that PCI-E slot you idiot. My computer randomly shut off around 5 minutes after a gaming session. It sounded like it was idling itself down...

    Memory Bandwidth and Stacked Memory

    One of the things I'm weak in is understanding how GPU bandwidth fully effects performance. I know that with higher resolutions bandwidth is critical due to more data needing to be transferred, but one thing I don't get is how it would affect current systems. For instance: On the Nvidia side...

    Logitech G230 mic gain static

    Okay so a couple of things first. 1) First headset purchased intended strictly for gaming. 2) No idea what "gain" really is or what it does in the technical terms. Now when I originally bought this last December I wasn't expecting miracles for $69 and they did the job audio wise of pleasing...

    OneDrive 100GB basically free

    http://winsupersite.com/skydrive/bing-rewards-members-get-100-gb-free-onedrive-storage-one-year If you're like me and have been holding off on taking cloud storage seriously because you're cheap and or the amount you'd like to backup is too much for the free options, now there is a way...

    UPS strangeness? Computer shuts down everything else fine

    I just got this APC BE650G1 UPS about 3 weeks ago after not having one for many years and something strange literally just happened. My computer and router are both the only devices plugged into the battery backup and for some reason the computer just shut down out of nowhere. I should say...

    Cat 6 Round vs Flat cables?

    In my holiday haste the other week I accidentally bought a set of Cat 6 Flat cables. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812422463 To be honest, I wasn't really paying attention when I bought the cable, but I took the liberty to go UTP vs STP. However, I had NO idea flat...

    ZyWall USG 50 DHCP

    So, I finally got my USG 50 in today (YAY!) and I have most of what I immediately need figured out, as confusing as it can be to get used to at first. My only gripe is with the DHCP Server. With everything being object oriented I have yet to find out how to exclude an IP address, or range...

    Newegg SSL compromised, dirty spyware, or a partnership in crime?

    Right now I'm on a fairly new build (since mid-September) and recently, perhaps a few weeks to a month ago I noticed something strange when visiting to Newegg (and ONLY Newegg). Everything is fine and dandy, until I go to checkout. Immediately when I go to sign in I get bombarded by 3-5...

    GK110 historical analysis are you content?

    tl;dr Are you pleased the GK110 came with the 700 Series and not the 600 Series (if that was not originally the intention). When we do a flashback from the 600 series and the talked about assumption (partially from historical POV), it was hotly debated as to whether or not the GK110 should...

    Asus X79 Sabertooth bottom PCIe slot

    I just set up my rig a few days back and I already have two GPU's running (one for gaming, one for F@H) and I was thinking of eventually picking up a third card for purposes of Folding. My problem is I don't think a GTX 780 could fit, maybe the GTX 660 could, but it would be a close fit. Can...

    New Machine GPU issues

    So I finally got around to getting a new build and putting it together and I have two questions currently. Question 1 I got a 780 in the top PCIe 3.0 16x slot (nearest the CPU) and I used that to install Windows before later adding in my second 660 I had from a previous machine in the...

    Running two video cards not in SLI

    Currently I have a GTX 260 that I use primarily for #1 folding and #2 gaming in that order. I'm getting a GTX 460 for practically free in the next few days and was thinking of doing an upgrade so the 460 is just for gaming and the 260 is running folding@home 24/7. MOBO: Asus P5Q Pro...

    Recovering boot partition after disk image?

    So in October 2012 my RAID0 array crashed, thankfully I made an image of it days prior to it collapsing. Since then I managed to reinstall the image back onto a single drive fully breaking my array and separating the disks and just restoring onto a single disk out of 3. However, my boot...

    RAID0 fail backup recovery

    Well about a week ago I was fortunate to backup my RAID0 array for the first time in 3 years (yes I'm horrible) and if fate was on my side, 5 days later it all crashed. In an effort to be brief, lets just say using Paragon Backup & Recovery 10 hasn't given me the best of luck, neither...
