    24-pin on Seasonic PSU -> MSI 790FX Mobo melted

    The PSU is a Seasonic X-1050 and mobo is an MSI 790FX-GD70 I was running 3x 5870's which were mining until yesterday, when I smelled burning. This has happened before and I'm on my second X-1050 (got my RMA two days ago). The 12v connector to the mobo just melted. This is the third time...

    CCVP in 6 months - Feasible?

    So I was offered a job as a network consultant and one of the things they would like me to do is obtain my CCVP in 9 months. If I do it in 6 months, I get a nice bonus in addition to the extra work. I've got a CCNA & CCNA wireless, which I did in a fairly small amount of time. Primarily...

    Locating 802.11 wireless device

    I'm looking for a tool or software that can locate a wireless device by providing the RSSI of all devices in the area. Software like Netstumbler, inSSIDer, and even Cisco's Spectrum Expert only show devices that send probes, which are mainly APs. However, I'm looking for client devices causing...

    Stream Windows Audio through LAN?

    Is there a way to stream all windows audio through the network? We have one TV in our office and were thinking of hooking up a PC to watch videos. We want to keep the noise level down and were wondering if there was a program to stream all Windows audio to our PCs. That way, we can all watch...

    Cannot get into ROMmon

    I think I might have royally screwed up. I saw that this router had 16MB of flash memory and my other router running a more recent version of IOS had 16MB flash as well. What I forgot to look at was the main memory. The router with the old IOS had 32MB and the one with the newer IOS had...

    Cheap managed gigabit switch?

    Cheap. Gigabit. Managed. I know those three don't go together just like time, cost, and quality, but I've gotta try :p This will be for home usage and would be my core switch/root bridge for my Cisco rack. I only need 8 ports. Cheapest I could find are the Dell 2808's at roughly $137...

    Bandwidth Degradation in Analog Circuits

    So one of the questions in my horrible networking class was along the lines of: "What happens as a line gets longer and longer" The more important choices were that bandwidth increases, stays the same, or decreases. I'm talking bandwidth (not throughput) in hz as the difference between the...

    High Resolution, High Pixel Density Screen?

    I love with my 15.4" 1920x1200 E6500, but it's a little on the fat side. I was wondering if there was a high resolution 12" or 13" like this Sony VGN-Z720D/B with a 13.3" 1600 x 900 screen, except in a more affordable package. The 1600 x 900 is the highest I've seen for a 13" and around 1280 x...

    Wireless router for ~20 users max + switch, $500 budget

    There's an office that has a crap D-LINK DIR-330 wireless router with about 10 users simultaneously connected, and they say things slow down to the point where they've had to turn off some laptops to free up some connections. Now, this is all from the end user, so who knows what the case may be...

    Switch Filter Table Question

    I was reading my CCNA book going over the OSI model and ethernet. As I understand, when a swtich receives a frame, it looks for the destination hw address in the frame, checks it with its filter table to associate it with a port, then forwards the frame to the correct port. My question is...

    Need an 8-pin PCI-E Adapter? Here's how to make one

    So I got a 9800GX2 with 2 power connections and I didn't have an 8 pin adapter. I tried looking online to see if using 2x 6 pin connectors would be fine, but I couldn't find much. Finally I tried making an 8-pin adapter and it works perfectly! Source: How to make 8-pin PCI-E Connector...

    Anyone try Microsoft Office Live?

    I just came across this service from Microsoft and I was wondering if it was even worth trying out. It says that they give you a free domain name, but I can't find any information about the bandwidth and space. I figure that it may be useful to host a few things here and there. The free...
