    Advice Needed for NAS Adapter

    The situation is fairly simple. I have a spare 3TB USB HDD laying around, and would like to use an adapter to connect it into my router. The router does not have a built-in USB port, and therefore a NAS adapter would be needed. The problem: Most NAS adapters only support up to 2TB per USB...

    Considering direct-die cooling my 4770k

    MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming 4770k NZXT Kraken x60 I did not win the silicone lottery and my delidded 4770k is 24hr Prime 28.1 stable at 4.5GHz but requires 1.36v to do so. Unfortunately, the only way I can run with these settings is if the ambient temperature is ~20c, which isn't always possible...

    Samsung 840 Pro - New build issues

    This is my first time using SSDs, so I will start by admitting that I don't know everything, and I'm not sure where to go from here. I just built a new gaming rig, and after dialing in my OC I decided to test other components. This is where things started to go wrong. MSI Z87 GD65 Gaming...

    Question for Extreme6 owners

    I'm looking into getting an Extreme6 motherboard for a new build, but there's one small snag. Because of my case (Antec 1200) and the cooler that I want to use (H100i), i may not have access to the x1 slot, which is where I was planning on putting my Xonar DX card. I've looked around for a bit...

    Thinking about 7970. What are 'driver issues'?

    I've been treading water in the mid-range video cards for many years now and am tempted to make the jump to enthusiast. Obviously my choices right now are either the 580 or the 7970, and the biggest reason why I haven't pulled the trigger on a 7970 is because I hear stories about AMD's driver...

    Please Give Me An Excuse

    Currently I have a M4A785TD-V Evo motherboard with a 1090T and 4x2GB DDR3 running 1333 @ 7-7-7-20 and a single 560ti 1GB. I've been tossing around the idea of upgrading to a 990FX board and am curious if I'm going to see any performance gain when making the switch. I'm aware of the greater...

    [H]forum webpage redirect issue.

    I really have no clue where to put this, so I'm hoping that networking is the right area. Long time forum user here, recently started to have issues with the site though, but only when clicking on links. Anytime I click on a link, it appears to get redirected to a site, perhaps for marketing...

    6950 fan profile issues (conflict)

    The short, short, short version. Have to have Overdrive on (for +20% powertune), MSI Afterburner custom fan profile set and loads on startup, but after ~5 seconds another fan profile kicks in. If I leave Overdrive disabled (booo) then the MSI AB profile stays and I don't have to worry about...

    Need help with 6950 UL/OC issue.

    Old card died, couldn't wait any longer for 7xxx series, so I grabbed a MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II from a local store (with internet price matching, of course). Brought it home, read the articles, unlocked the shaders with RBE, then moved to overclocking. She's at 840/1325 right now and showing no...

    Need someone who knows more about UPS systems than me.

    Question Regarding Micro-Stutter

    I have always used a single card for all my gaming needs, and until now have always leaned heavily towards single GPU cards. I have read that SLI and Crossfire does cause micro-stutter which the keen eye can detect, and after looking at some videos I believe that I will continue to shy away from...

    Antec 1200 - Replacement Screws?

    I just bought a Antec 1200 and was getting ready to begin my transition from my old Thermaltake Armor 8003bws to this bigger-and-better beast of a case, but was stopped short because of missing screws, specifically the hard drive screws. I did a quick look on the Antec website and wasn't able to...

    How many CFM to cool a 700w PSU?

    I have a system with a OCZ StealthXStream 700w from a few years ago. Still works fine, but the fan is getting a bit noisy. I know the risks of replacing fans, and obviously don't care about warranty since it's old. I wasn't thinking of doing any soldering, just pulling out the existing fan and...

    Thermaltake Support is a joke. I need help from people who actually read.

    Although I am quite happy with the case I purchases back in November 2007, I am no longer happy with the company who should at least be able to tell me what size fan was used. I will save the story and copy/paste my email that I sent to their support team. My original question is at the bottom...

    Tool to measure CPU wattage?

    Thinking about starting RAID

    Thermaltake Frio on AM3 N/S or E/W ?

    Curious as to the orientation of the Thermaltake Frio mounted on an AM3 processor. Does it fit E/W or N/S ? I've tried looking at several review sites, and it seems as though this is primarily tested in i7 920's, so I can't tell if it sits in the correct direction.
