    i5 2500K (4.8) and Asus Maximus V Gene3 advice

    Well, I was on an AMD X4 955 BE for the last two years, and I didn't overclock it much (the mITX board from Asus), and now I'm rocking an i5 2500K and the board in the title (mATX). It's running at 4.8 right now; I did have it at 4.7 for a bit, and I COULD do 5.0, but my concern is temps. I'm...

    RemoteFX set up, working out some bugs!

    Hey everyone, I just got a little Hyper-V/RemoteFX setup going at work, but I'm having a bit of an issue with it. As soon as I enabled Aero in the guest, it started getting laggy. And by laggy, I mean I drag a window around and it's in slow-mo. I'm watching GPUz in the host machine and the...

    Anyone use Sibelius 6 on Windows 7? Playback problems...

    I've been using Sibelius for ages to compose and arrange music, but recently under Sibelius 6 and Windows 7 I've been having playback problems. It seems whenever I use the Sibelius Sounds library to play back, the score plays VERY rubato (i.e. it speeds up and slows down playback a lot)...

    GTA: SA crashes when loading?

    Hello all. I've got the Steam version of GTA: SA, and it was working perfectly for the longest time. But now, it seems whenever I come upon a loading screen (where the screen goes black for a second), it crashes there and never goes out of the black screen. If I alt+tab out, I see a "Rockstar...

    Confused by AMD's naming change? I think I figured out their logic!

    Alright, this came to me while I was super ripped last night (:cool:) but it makes SO MUCH SENSE. I know everyone's been griping about AMD changing their naming scheme this generation, renaming the formerly 67X0 to the 68X0, and how such a change makes "no sense", "hurts consumers", etc. But...

    Overwhelmed by Android devices... recommendations?

    I'm looking to get a replacement to my HTC Magic as it's slowly fading away, but I'm honestly overwhelmed by the choices available!

    SSD with 9-pin SATA power: adapter options?

    I have a ~1.5" SSD from work (it's all legit, don't worry) that uses what appears to be a proprietary, 9-pin SATA power connector. Looking around e-bay, I see one option which is a $5 SATA/Molex to 7+9-pin drive connector. I'm wondering where this form factor comes from, and if there are other...

    My PERC 5/i has ground to a halt!

    This is a continuation of my thread here, which started out because CHKDSK kept failing when trying to check my RAID partition. However, I tried tracing it a little deeper, so I ran HD Tune and this is what I got: Uploaded with ImageShack.us I just stopped it in the middle because that much...

    Chkdsk fails on my corrupt partition... can't figure it out!

    This is what happens: Every time I run it, either CLI, via the GUI, or on system boot, this happens. It just stoppes at 0 percent. If I run it read-only, it overflows with errors (I get the "This filesystem has errors" message and the scanning stops). I've tried looking for alternatives...

I have a PERC 5/i, but I have no way to mount it in the case I'm using, so I'm looking at getting a...

    This is a weird one. I've got a ton of music on my SD card in my phone.
