    Micro, battery-powered AC.... Might be fun!!

    I'm not affiliated with or selling this KS, but I might support it. Might be VERY fun as a chiller, these micro rotary units are very effective - I don't know what model it's using, but it does say it's a scroll compressor with R134a and 150W rated. It also runs on 12V.

    Anybody with feedback on Skylake CPU bending?

    I'm looking for anybody with experience with those flimsy Skylake CPUs and their inelastic properties. I have in my possession a rather expensive motherboard, with a broken CPU mounted in it. Socket looks fine, but obviously the board won't POST with this CPU (tested before disassembly). I...

    Troubleshooting problematic Samsung LED LCD - TCON / Connection question!

    Howdy, ladies and gents! So I have a Samsung LED LCD UN46C5000. TV is actually putting solid BLACK on the 1st 1/8th, and then the vertical bars on the next 1/8th section. Changed source to "antenna" and got a nice "static" test image. Tapping / moving the tabs / TCON has little to no affect...

    Cheapest PCIe M.2 Storage?

What's my cheapest option for putting this slot to use? I'd be happy to just throw Windows on it, and keep my games / docs on my current...

    Recommended Z77/Z75/Z68 ITX motherboard?

    Howdy, folks!! I'm trying to piece together a smaller system for a friend, who has a i5-3570k processor he'd like to use. I've been looking for an ITX overclocking board, so I can really tweak the processor both for some performance and to play with the voltages to keep thermal down as low...

    Transcend M.2 SSD not working in Gerne VII

    Howdy, everybody. Been running my Z97 Gene VII for a little while now, single video yadda yadda with one SATA6 SSD. I just got an Transcend M.2 SSD, plugged it in - No dice. Went into the BIOS, did my due diligence, found the PCIex4/mPCIe/m.2 setting, switched it to M.2 mode... No dice...

    Laptop to desktop conversion tip

    Just a quick tip, for those who convert laptops (with or without broken components, which render them useless as portable systems) into desktops - Processor heatsink/fan units designed for general Socket M / P, Xeon "Sossaman" and Pentium M / Socket 479 fit the GPU core mounts for all...

    RDP "Hackers" at it again...

    Just set another firewall rule for some IP trying to continually access my server over RDP - No doubt just guessing away at passwords with some automate tool. Last time, it was a Korean IP address (and I blocked the whole second octet). This time, it was "hosted-by-kingRDP.com" trying to...

    [Not sure if correct spot] OSX / Exchange difficulties...

    Good morning, fine denizens of [H]ardForum. To start off, I'm a PC guy. I help run a small company, it's just the owner and myself. We have one larger customer with 10+ computers, joined to a 2008 server with Exchange. One headache user is stuck on a MacBook - We can't join it to the...
