I am currently at my wits end.
About a year ago I overclocked my 2600k to 4.4ghz @ 1.35 volts. It was fine for then, but the past couple of months I started to get some errors and WHEA messages which I tracked down to likely being an issue with the cpu overclock.
So to fix this I planned to...
Why is this a big deal?
It's an FALD lit (much better then edge lit lcd's) 4k hdr that supports dolby vision. The specs put it as one of the game changers for a 4k tv at that price range. You will be hard pressed to get a...
So I am having this very strange issue.
I'm running on an Asus p8z68-v pro motherboard, on the back there are two USB 3.0 ports.
I have been using one to plug in my main USB hub (which has its own power adapter that plugs into an outlet).
I recently got a USB 3.0 active repeater cable so I...
Hello, so ever since I've upgraded to Windows 10 I have noticed my physical memory is almost always at a constant 90% or above use. Even when I open task manager and add up all of the processes and things listed it's no where near that.
I was trying to track down what might be using so much...
Hello, I'm not a huge overclocker and tend to leave my cpu/ram alone until it gets later in life when I actually start needing that power.
Well I recently been wanting to push my 2600k up and have been reading guides/watching videos, but I am finding a lot of conflicting advice/guides.
I am not sure if anyone remembers this mmo. I played it in beta all the way back in like 2004 or so I believe. One of the things that stood out about the game was just how large/open the world was. Keep in mind, this was like right around the time WoW came out, most mmo's were "zoned" worlds and...
So yesterday I went to drop my new 1070 into my current pc.
It's an Asus p8z68-v pro gen3 mobo running a 2600k and it was on 1600 ddr 3.
I upgraded my ram as well and got 16gb 2133mhz ram (2x 8gb), this: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop...
I have a friend with a computer issue and I couldn't figure it out.
He's running windows 7 and when he selects "Restart" from windows start menu instead of restarting it shuts down.
I wonder, is it possible this is caused by a reversed connection on his motherboard and case? Like if hie...
Just downloaded and tried to play Blade and Soul which just released today and of course, there's a 280 freaking minute queue for the server my guild is on.
I remember playing another mmo here a few months back and it also was plagued with long queue times at release.
It baffles me how...
Haven't really kept up with things, built this pc a few years back and I'm upgrading the HD to an SSD and also going to upgrade my ram.
Just not sure what brand/type would be the best so if anyone could recommend me some.
Long story short, I grew up using the old Logitech style mice , the very simple shape that was made with either hand (Rather then many mouse these daysa made for a specific hand shape right or left) and I use a finger-tip grip.
After my old logitech mouse died I moved on to the Steelseries...

I am wondering, I am thinking about using a USB hub and having my mouse+keyboard go through it and the Hub plugged into my pc.
However will this affect the performance of my mouse in terms of latency/delays?
It will be a self-powered hub (as in it draws the power from it's on plug and not...
