    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    I am having this problem and I'm scratching my head trying to figure it out. I run Linux on my computer. It runs without issue for days at a time. I can game, work which involves large compiles, run VMs, anything. Then I'll leave my PC and return later to find it has shut off. USB peripherals...

    After Market Cooler Triggers Fan Warning

    I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H. Obviously the fan is bigger than the stock fan and spins slower at low temps. When my desktop comes up the fan drops to about 650 RPM and my PC speaker starts beeping continuously. If I run something that utilizes the CPU and...

    I was hoping that the Phenom 9950BE 125W would work well in my M2N32-SLI Deluxe board. I know the 140W version can be an issue. I have found my system to be completely unstable. I run Gentoo and parts of the desktop (kmix, konsole, etc.) are crashing randomly. I am also getting a random segfault...

    Recommendation for Skt AM2 system

    I am starting to purchase parts for my AM2 system. I will be running a Gentoo Linux system compiled for 64-bit. All drives, sound, and case will be recycled from my current system. That leaves me purchasing memory, cpu, mobo, vid, and psu. I have already purchased my memory and this is what...

    2600+ or fake?

    I orderd a 2600+ 266Mhz from www.dvcentury.com. It just arrived today. The first thing that I noticed was that there were a few chips on one corner of the die. I was a bit upset about it but figured if it worked then thermal grease would fill them. So I put it in. My mobo is an Asus A7V266-E...
