    Autotune missing?

    I'm using Catalyst 12.4 on an XFX Double D 7770, and just noticed there is no Autotune button in the Graphics Overdrive section of the Control Center. It doesn't matter whether "Enable Graphics Overdrive" is checked or not. So, is Autotune gone from 12.4, or am I doing something wrong, or...

    Windows 7 Explorer crashing

    Every now and then, when I click on Power Options in the Control Panel, I get the message "Windows Explorer has stopped working." Explorer then restarts and sometimes I can re-click and things are fine, or it may fail two or three times in a row. It may go weeks between occurrences, or...

    Opteron 175 or Athlon 4400+?

    I've got both of these Socket 939 processors and am trying to decide which one to use in a new, retro build. They appear identical--dual-core, 2.2GHz speed, 2X1MB L2 cache, etc. The Opteron 175 is a Denmark core, E6 stepping. The 4400+ is a Toledo core and also E6 stepping. Any reason to...

    Which CPU for Windows Home Server box?

    I'm running WHS version 1 on a home-built system using an old Socket 939 board with an Athlon X2 3800. The system is only used for file storage and automatic back-ups of five desktops and laptops. No media storage or streaming, etc. I was going through some old components yesterday and came...
