    Reason for terrible USB3 port speeds?

    I've got a Gigabyte H55N-USB3 board with my 2tb Samsung F4 external and a 16gb Cruzer flash drive (both USB2 devices) hooked up to in the USB3 slots. I'm moving various video files (ranging from about 100-500mb each) from the 2tb to the flash drive, but my transfer speed right now is ~4MB/s...

    External raid box or internal with pci card?

    I'm planning on finally getting my storage setup going across the next few months. It'll be 4-5 2tb drives and I'd like to have em in Raid 0, but since I've never dabbled with anything but onboard (and this new setup won't allow for that), I figured I'd ask the pros. Also, this is ONLY for...

    Removing prongs from LL A05B power cable?

    I remember a while ago I saw someone that had sleeved the wires on the power cable "extender" that runs from the back to the front and routed it through the small passage in the bottom corner and I'd like to go that route, but the prongs seem to be pretty stuck in there. How should I go about...

    CoolIT Eco in Q07?

    I've been contemplating my case decision for a while now and I'm between a Q07 or waiting for the Q11. I know that heatsink space in the Q07 is limited (and looks like the Q11 will be limited in the same fashion) so I've also been thinking heavily into which cooler to get. I know a few people...

    Phenom II X4 955 BE + Ultra 120 high temps...

    I installed my Thermalright Ultra 120 with the same yate loon 120mm medium speed I was using on my buddies 955BE (C3) yesterday and we're still getting high temps for some reason. The chip is running at the stock 3.2ghz and stock volts, but it's idling around 42C and when stress testing it'll...

    No onboard video with MSI 890GXM-G65

    In the bios under advanced options, on-chip vga is disabled and I can't find a way to enable it. Default video out is set to internal, but I'm guessing since the previous is disabled, this doesn't matter. This is on the latest bios, 1.6. Also, MSI's system drivers don't have anything regarding...

    Ultra 120 (non extreme) on i7?

    Best bang for buck card for 3d modeling work

    My buddy is looking to put a new rig together. I've got most of the build list done, but when it comes to 3d modeling apps, I'm no expert. He uses both 3DS Max and Maya at a whopping 1280x1024 (17"). As of now the build is leaving around 150ish for the graphics card, but we could shift stuff...

    Pci-e 1x 5ghz wireless adapter?

So far I've only come across 2.4ghz adapters, so I've started to wonder if a 5ghz adapter even exists. Anyone know...

    Question about stock gpu cooler + thermal paste

    I know I've read about this several times, but it has been a while and I can't seem to come up with the results in the search, so here we go. 9800gtx+ with a stock cooler was giving some artifacts while gaming, so I figured maybe it's getting too hot so I'll try to get a bit more life out of the...
