    Xonar Essence STX crackling in games

    Hello all, I have an Asus Xonar Essnece STX and I get crackling/stuttering at the Nvidia Intro in Batman Arkham City. I have also heard it elsewhere, but always in this intro. It's not occurring in-game that I can tell. It's not that this particular anomaly bothers me as much as I want to...

    Will it fit?

    I have a Gigabyte Z68MA D2H B3 motherboard, and I will be getting an AMD 7970. I was wondering if I will have room to put in a Xonar Essence STX PCIE x1 sound card next to the graphics card, or will it not fit due to the graphics card being dual-slot?

    Modding the Silverstone GD-04 for an H100?

    Anyone mod an HTPC case like THIS one to put on an H100? I would like to overclock my 2500K, but have a need for a very low profile HSF, and no room inside the case. Which leads me to using an H100, but I was wondering if I can put it on the outside of the case where there are 2 120mm intake...

    HELP me please!

    OK, I have THIS case. And, I recently purchased the Scythe Big Shuriken 2, so I could possibly overclock my 2500K, but the damned thing blocks two of my RAM slots. So, my question is this: Can I use the Corsair H100 and attach it on the outside of this case, or am I really just S.O.L. as...

    Top 100 [H]ardest rigs thread

    Well, I am not certain that this is the correct subforum for this thread, but I have looked all over and haven't seen a thread which composed basically of reader's rigs and their benchmark busting custom PC's. What I mean is, we have 'show me pics of your rig', and 'post your multithreaded...

    X-Fi issues

    I recently did some failed overclocking and had to reset my CMOS. Afterwards, I calmed my PC down a little and everything was fine except I had no sound (I think I might have touched the top of the soundcard during this process). Device manager showed a yellow arrow indicating the device was...

    Yes, another Abit IP35 thread..

    Well, I have been experimenting with my new build, and I think I decided to go aftermarket cooling on the PWM, northbridge and southbridge. I will either modify the existing cooling mechanism (through heatpipe mod or other mods) with Arctic Silver 5 and/or thermal epoxy; or, I will just buy...

    E6750 or Q6600

    I just purchased a Q6600 from Newegg, but I had a problem with my credit card (put in wrong exp. date), so the order didn't go through. I fixed it then I did a little research and decided on an E6750. Well, long story short, they are BOTH on their way to my house for my new build. So, which...

    Vista Gamer? (Stripped version of Vista for gaming)

    I would like to see a version of Vista that isn't a resource hog, doesn't use like 512 Mb of RAM with no running programs, has Direct X 10, and doesn't ask permission to do everything. I was reading the Maximum PC article on what versions will have what features, and it seems that I would...

    Answer to the "mystery chip" on the 8800

    From today's review article "NVIDIA has moved the TMDS logic into a custom, discrete ASIC that you will find toward the front of the video card. Their reasoning was to simplify package and board routing and to speed up manufacturing efficiencies. All GeForce 8800 GTX and GTS GPUs are HDCP...

    So what's the deal here?

    Hey all. I was gonna buy a 20" lcd this week and use it not only as a pc monitor, but also to watch HDTV from comcast digital cable.

    To OC. or Not to OC, that is the question.

    Hey guys, thinking about overclocking my desktop at work (HP). What do you think? It is sometimes slow when I have a lot of apps open because it is just a 1.5MHz P4. Wonder if anyone would know if I managed to fuck it up. I could probably OC it a couple hundred MHz right?

    The " Big things come in small packages" contest

    No More "ATI has better image quality" arguments?

    From the review of the 7950 GT " With this and what we experienced in Half Life 2 we can conclude that the farther in the distance the object is then the NVIDIA GPU will potentially render it better with transparency supersampling. However, the closer the object is to you then the ATI GPU may...
