    Win7 doesn't recognize free space on network storage

    Hi guys, Wasn't sure whether to post this in the Network section or here. So this is the issue I have: I've got the ASUS RT-N66U router and I recently plugged a 4TB USB drive to it (WD MyBook 3). The drive is formatted as NTFS. I crated a bunch of Samba shares on it using the ASUS...

    Gigabyte 760 not working with 3D Vision?

    Hey guys, I just got the Gigabyte 760 today and for the heck of it, I can't get it to work with 3D vision. I've had the ASUS VG278H for over a year but had an ATI card so didn't really use the 3D. It did work over HDMI. Now I got an nvidia card and I can't get any 3D options anywhere. The...

    5Ghz wi-fi lag spikes (2.4 is good) - what to do!?

    Hi guys, This has been driving me nuts. I have the ASUS RT-N66U and 2.5Ghz works flawlessly, but on 5Ghz I get these lag spikes and I have no idea why. I use WLANOptimizer (which was a God-send that resolved my stupid Windows network-search spikes) and I get full 300mbps on 5Ghz, but it's...

    So anyone got their Oculus Rift sets or can point to some impressions?

    Searched the forum but it's all old info and the net doesn't yield much either. I'm curious to hear from first-hand users that already got their sets (if they even had enough time to get it going). If anyone has any info or links, it'd be appreciated, thanks.

    Big Typhoon on LGA1155?

    Hi guys, I have the Big Typhoon HSF on my current 939 setup and am planning on going 1155 (ASUS -V or MSI 65, still on the fence). It'd be super-awesome if I could re-use this guy on the 2500K but I'm not sure I can. I read about some guy making it fit on some ASRock board but not much...

    Hi guys, I'm building a new system, Z68 (most likely will be going for ASUS -V/Gen3), 2500k, radeon 6950. Tried to find out what memory to get and from the info I gathered it seems I'll be good with 8GB 1600 dual-channel sticks. My question is - which brand to get? I see that GSkill...

    Need help getting another 1GB DDR!

    Hi guys, I currently have 1GB DDR OCZ Performance series in dual-channel mode (2x512). I'd like to get another pair of 512, cause I think I might benefit from it since my memory usage is often at >95% while gaming. I must note that my system is OC'd, FSB is at 265. Is it ok to get a...

    G15 LCD positioning question

    Hi, I was wondering if any G15 owner could tell me how far back the LCD can be tilted, eg. can it do a full 180 degrees from a closed position to a "flat open" position or does it open to only like 45deg from a vertical position. The reason I'm asking is that I want to know whether it...

    Is it OK to switch LCD on/off frequently?

    Hi, With my CRT I developed a habit of turning it off if I left the comp for like 15 minutes or longer. Is it ok to do the same with LCDs? Say I turn it off, leave for 20mins, come back and turn it on again and do the same after 2 hours or so? Or is it better to just leave it on the whole...
