    ECS P45T-A 775 pcie problems

    I have an old ECS P45T-A mobo that absolutely refuses to boot an nvidia 650Ti past the windows logo once drivers are installed (and it will instantly freeze the display when drivers are installed if you're installing them w/o any installed). I know the card is good because it works fine in the...

    Considering PSU replacement, need opinions

    I recently purchased a Lenovo thinkserver TS140 off amazon for ~$220. The power supply it comes with is pretty weak, and it's configuration is weird almost to the point of being bizarre. I had a few thoughts that I was looking for second opinions/options on. Here's the specs of the machine as...

    AC Routers, am I missing something?

    I was looking for an AC router/AP for my apartment, as the 2.4ghz frequency my Asus RT-N16 is restricted to is horribly congested and near useless for anything but a youtube video and light browsing. Most of them seem to be in the ~$150 range, which is about as much as I paid for my last two...

    Low profile pci-e riser cable

    Does anyone know of a lower-profile riser cable than the ones commonly offered? I have a pci-express slot covered by a graphics card and I was looking to get access to it, but the riser I have isn't long enough (and I'm not sure if would fit). I've also seen the USB ones but those generally...

    Was crossfire in windowed mode ever added?

    Just curious, I had 2 4870s a while back and one of my biggest complaints about crossfire (aside from microstutter) was that it didn't work in windowed mode, which is how I play over half the games that I actively still enjoy. I don't remember reading anything about it but I fade in and out...

    Stuck at windows startup, partially fixed

    I'll start out short: I've been troubleshooting an HTPC build that's a hodgepodge of parts I had laying around, and the computer will only properly boot into windows if my graphics card is in the second pci express slot. Current parts: E6850 - 3Ghz core 2 duo ECS black socket 775 Corsair CX430...

    TV - 3D or not?

    I know this is a "displays" forum but I'm not sure if that includes TVs implicitly or not, so feel free to move this to off topic if necessary. I'm going to be buying a large (likely 70 inch) tv soon, and with that in mind I was wondering what was the general though/speculation of forum go-ers...

    5V rail questions

    Most of my knowledge in terms of power consumption and usage comes from the 12v rail and all the glorious things powered by it, but I have a question that there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information on that I can find in 15 minutes of googling. I have a home server (listed in sig) that...

    Recommendation request (low response/weaker colors vs. resolution/ips)

    I've been searching around the net and taking a look at what I might be interested in for the past week or so, and it seems like there are two sections of the market right now that I can choose from: 1. High end 1920x1080 TN panels (possibly with lightboost to help) that have extremely fast...

    Should I move off of intel fakeraid?

    Currently I have a raid 5 of four 2TB drives, and while it's served me well over the past 2 and a half years (it was transferred from an old socket 775 core 2 duo build), all the things I've read about it and the dependence I've developed for it, I'm concerned about its reliability. Almost...

    WMM slowing speeds on wireless N

    Recently got a new netgear 3500L to replace an old wrt54gl so that I could upgrade to gigabit and wireless N throughout the house. After playing with configurations and messing around with settings, I've finally found the issue that I'm having when it comes to streaming HD content off of an HD...

    New Tiamat 7.1 sounds "tinny"

    Just got my new pair of Tiamat 7.1s (yes, I know most people say that the artificial surround is better but I've always preferred having the drivers in the headphones), and they sound, well, bad. I don't know how to describe it but everything just sounds hollow. They're set to 7.1 and music in...

    7970 Hardlock in WoW with DX11

    Just curious if anyone else has ran into this issue at all with their 7xxx series. I'm starting to think it might be directx11 in general that's crashing me as it happens with total war: shogun 2 (and a lot of other people too apparently). After reformatting, taking pieces in and out, stopping...
