    Sabertooth Z77 with >2 sticks of ram won't work!

    So I ordered another pair of the SAME ram just to be sure since timings were slightly different. The new set also does not work. (both sticks memtested) I turned on XMP and set them to both PC3-1600 and PC3-1333 and increased VCCSA slightly along with PCH. Still does not work! CPUID sees...

    Sabertooth Z77 with >2 sticks of ram won't work!

    Hi guys, I've been running the Z77 with 2x4gb for a couple of years now fine. Recently, I bought another 2x4gb to add to it. Same model ram, I think slightly different timings but nothing big. The motherboard won't utilize either stick in the 2nd channel. It just picks up the Channel 1 8gb...

    How would I amplify this cable into my home?

    Hi guys, I would like to amplify the signal coming into my home since I'm now using Cetons using a +15 dB amplifier I already have. I checked out my box outside and would like a little guidance on how to install this amplifier. I'm not sure what kind of cable that is running into the...

    Saving files from dying MBP

    I tried that but no good. I think the problem is pretty deeply rooted and won't even boot so pressing T does nothing. The system simply powers on. This vid shows the exact problem I have: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92TnIHBzlas Found a thread on the apple forum earlier and it didn't sound...

    Saving files from dying MBP

    I have a 2008 MBP that is biting the dust. I have a dead nvidia 8600 GPU so I can't get any display. The HD is fine, but the graphics are not. Before I take it to the store and explore possible repairs (if any, wouldn't be surprised if it's time to buy a new MBP) I want to try to retrieve the...

    Can't CTRL+ALT+DEL to log in to WHS computer with any keyboard

    It's really weird. I've tried several keyboards with both USB and P/S2 or whatever but once WHS boots, I cannot login. The computer recognizes the keyboard during boot and I can get into BIOS fine. But once WHS loads up, no more keyboard. I CAN use a mouse though. To top it off, the dumb...

    New Win7 Install, no permissions now on storage HD

    This is weird and I've searched and searched and could not find a solution. I have 2 HDs, an OS drive and a storage 1TB drive that has programs and files on it. I just upgraded the OS drive to a 120gb SSD and figured I would grab some important folders off the 1TB and then reformat it, clearing...

    Can anything help with FRAPS fps?

    Hi guys, I have a question about the fps drop when using fraps. Basically, what is the main hardware reason it drops fps? I'm not sure there's much I can do to help my situation, but maybe there is. I record WoW raids at 2560x1600 resolution on the rig in my comment and I drop down to 25-30...

    Wireless antenne question

    Thanks guys! The adapter in my computer is N (D-Link DWA-552 Xtreme N) but the router is not (Linksys WRT54GL). Does N have a stronger signal? Should I consider getting an N router? Out of curiosity, if I got something powerful like this...

    Wireless antenne question

    Weird powered USB hub problem

    Okay, so I got a second powered USB 2.0 hub of a different manufacturer because I thought the first one I had was broken. Apparently, it's something I'm doing wrong or elsewhere. I have both hubs plugged into the wall and computer. When I have my mouse and keyboard plugged into them, they come...

    Welcome to Hard Forum! I believe a post like this (called Want to Buy) would belong in the For Sale/Trade forum with a "WTB" tag at the beginning of the subject. That's quite an old beast there, I remember when I got a 1.25ghz athlon and thought it was the fastest thing ever. Running...

    From 37" Westy to 30" 2560x1600, DONT HESITATE!

    Not too sure about the movies yet, but I do a lot of photoshop work along with CAD. It's really far superior on the 30" than the 37" I'm finding.

    From 37" Westy to 30" 2560x1600, DONT HESITATE!

    This post isn't about a specific 30" (although I do love my new w3000h, SC2 is killer on it) but moreso about the transition from 37" 1080p to 30" Just wanted to throw this out there since this decision was tough for me, I thought others may have the same trouble. All I can say is, do not...

    What software can draw in movies like this?

    Hi guys, I'm looking for a method or program that would allow me to draw on some HD video of mine frame by frame. Basically, I have my golf swing recorded and I'd like to add a line that follows the golf ball in flight. It's pretty neat. For you golf fans, I'm talking about Pro tracer...

    Are my conclusions about 27" and 30" monitors correct?

    I've been reading up quite a bit and it seems like 30" monitors, although neat, are definitely not the most cost effective. For the same price as a single 3008wfp, 3x27" samsungs or practically any 27" from newegg can be had. Is this correct? Would you guys recommend the two or three 27"ers...

    Export MS Access DB data to Outlook or MySQL

    Hi guys, My buddy's small office has about 20 MB worth of database data (mainly contact information for about 5000 people) in an old, lousy MS Access database. He wants to pull the data out and into something like Outlook or even MySQL. Is there a way to do extract that information and place...

    What other games are like Alien Swarm?

    This game gave my buddies and I a really good time and now we're looking for some other stuff of similar nature. Coop, some RPG elements, etc. Anything else out there kind of like this besides Diablo? We like the 3rd person MGS aspect of it too.

    Questions about my HT Audio setup

    So I recently purchased my first home theater audio system. I've always used built in speakers before this. I got a 5.1 Energy speaker system and a Polk center piece and a Yamaha receiver, all from Newegg. My question is about how I have it configured. Right now I have everything connected to...

    Weird problem with XFX 5870, what to do?

    Well I plugged my 260 back in for now and it works fine. Could this possibly be the card itself? Not sure what else it could be. I tried the other PCI slot, no good.

    Weird problem with XFX 5870, what to do?

    OK, Took it out, gently blew out any possible dust in socket and then placed card back in. Double checked the alignment, and it's fine. Same thing, 4 beeps. Shut off power supply, wait 5 seconds, turn back on, 0 beeps. I think it's my PSU. It's a BFG 550 watt from Best Buy. With my specs...

    Weird problem with XFX 5870, what to do?

    I just upgraded to an XFX 5870 from a Geforce GTX 260. My system was rock solid and stable with the GTX260. With the 5870, every time I turn on the computer, the fans on the card run at 100% and I get one long beep followed by 3 short ones. Then, I switch off the power supply and jiggle the card...

    How to backup 30gb files for an office

    That's cool. Would we need a fast upload connection for that? I think our office only has 512kbps upload. Also, can it be automated? Like, could I automatically upload my 30gb folder once a week, and hold 3 weeks of data on their server, automatically deleting the oldest week? (90gb)

    PC Gaming Dead? Pshhhyeah, right!

    It's not JUST a matter of how many games are coming out.... it's a matter of QUALITY too. Personally, I only give a rats ass for maybe, 2 or 3 of those. It sure seems to me that there are a growing number of crappy games on the horizon than quality.
