    Did I miss something?

    Just discovered this was down myself. Of course, the fact I haven't looked at it in years is possibly a problem ... any reason to still even be running F@H clients?

    ASUS P8Z68-V LE Sound Problem

    Interesting, the crackle only seems to happen when I'm doing cpu/gpu folding with everything loaded. The volume may be doing the same thing, but I haven't noticed it except in games (though I can imagine Arkham City loads both the cpu and gpu pretty well).

    ASUS P8Z68-V LE Sound Problem

    Yeah I redid all the connections thinking the same thing, because that is kind of how it sounds, but jiggly all the cables didn't fix or make worse the problem. There aren't any driver updates, but I'll try just reinstalling and seeing if that fixes it.

    ASUS P8Z68-V LE Sound Problem

    I've had this setup for a while now and only recently I've noticed odd problems with the sound output. What seems like randomly, the sound will fade, then get loud, then fade, maybe stabilize for a bit, then continue. Doesn't matter if I'm playing games or just looking at the Windows desktop...

    GTX 560Ti DVI ports don't wake up

    I have my monitors hooked up to the DVI ports on my 560Ti and have noticed that sometimes when I turn the power back on to the monitors that the screen don't come back alive no matter how much mouse wiggling or keyboard punching I do. The only thing that seems to wake them back up is to unplug...

    Dual Monitors in Arkham City

    Oh I know. I've had at least dual at work (now triple) for a long time now and coming home always annoys me.

    Dual Monitors in Arkham City

    Crap. So I'd have to get a new PSU, another gfx card, and another monitor. Ah well.

    Dual Monitors in Arkham City

    I just got a 2nd display to hook up to my gtx560ti thinking I could game with both displays, but the highest resolution I can get in Arkham City is 1920x1080. Can you not do dual display gaming with a single GPU? If you can, what the heck am I doing wrong?

    Do I have enough power for SLI?

    I used to think like you do, but I used an online calculator and it topped me off at 524W. After spending years with a Shuttle box that powered way more than I thought with what I thought was a puny power supply, I've started to rethink my old ways. At the same time, I really don't know. I...

    SLI HowTo Question

    So I've been out of the loop way too damn long, forgive me. But I just put a new rig together and I'm thinking of adding another 560Ti to it to get SLI. The last I remember, you still needed to add a bridge between the two cards to do this, but neither my motherboard (ASUS P8Z68-V LE) or the...

    Do I have enough power for SLI?

    So I just built a new rig and am tempted to go SLI (mostly because I can get a free copy of Arkham Asylum :), but I don't know if I have enough power to do it. Specs straight from NewEgg: 1 x EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP...

    Stats seem off what my totals are on Stanford's site state, but several days worth. Last couple of days on [H]ardFolding have zero stats for me. Anyone else noticing the same?

    PS3 Force Unleashed 2 Demo?

    Yeah I wasn't planning to pay full price for it. I've seen a lot of the bad reviews, including game length, but I wanted to try it out since reviews don't always jive with my personal opinion. Mostly, but not always. :) Maybe they pulled the demo because of the bad reviews? Don't want people...

    This is so highly annoying. Feels like I've spent hours digging through the Playstation Store looking for this damn thing.

    Yeah, I even searched for "force unleashed" and got nothing but add-ons and themes and such. Very weird.

    PS3 Remote Question

    So I have a Sony DH810 receiver and it's remote looks damn near identical to the PS3 Remote. Yes, I know it work because the PS3 has no IR sensor (the bastards). What I want to know is if there's a cheap way to be able to use my remote to function as a PS3 remote. If the cheap BluWave remote...

    Best single slot card to replace 8800GT OC?

    I've got a Shuttle system I built, which limits my ability to have a dual slot video card. The BFG 8800GT OC I have in it right now is doing fine, but I have the upgrade itch and am looking for the best single slot upgrade I can find. Problem is that I have no idea how today's cards stack up...

    Is there a way to mark bad RAM blocks?

    Memtest+ lets me know it's my 3rd stick of RAM, so I'm pretty confident I can just take a pair out and send it off for replacement. As an aside, I don't think I want to run with 3 sticks in, wouldn't that kill dual channel?

    Is there a way to mark bad RAM blocks?

    Fearing I already know the answer to this question (NO!), I have to ask it anyway before I go without my box for God knows how long while an RMA replaces my sticks of RAM. A breaker popped the other night, killing power to my machine. Normally, there's no side effect, but the chamber wasn't...

    WMP600N prevents box from booting

    Did some digging around. Seems the motherboard I have is an ECS P4S5A which supports the PCI 2.2 specification. If the WMP600N is a PCI 2.3 card, would it work in a 2.2 slot? From what I've read, it seems like it should be fine, but could it be the root of this evil plaguing me? The WMP54GS...

    WMP600N prevents box from booting

    Ok, so I got ahold of Linksys's live agent web support last night around 2am (joy). After repeatedly having to tell "Sherrie" that it didn't matter what my OS was due to not being able to get a BIOS POST, the only satisfaction I was able to get was an elevated case where someone will contact me...

    WMP600N prevents box from booting

    Damn. Works fine in my Shuttle box. So the card would appear to be fine. I know the other computer is fine since the old wireless card works fine in it ... but the two "fine" things don't like each other. Any thoughts?

    Got it at the local OfficeMax. Haven't tried a second machine yet. Not sure my Shuttle box has a PCI slot. I'll check and update.

    WMP600N prevents box from booting

    Almost got it to POST before it froze and just sounded a nice long beeeeeeeeep until I killed the power. This is freaking annoying. And to return the stupid thing is going to cost me a 15% restocking fee. Anger ensues.

    WMP600N prevents box from booting

    Something weird is going on here. I just pulled a WMP54GS from a box that was working fine and replaced it with a WMP600N, both PCI wireless cards. However, the machine won't boot with the WMP600N in it. Power goes on, fans spin, lights go blinky, but there's no video signal. Pull the card...

    Upgrade Vista to Win7 in a different location?

    I want to try out Win7, but don't want to lose my Vista install (works great for me). I'd also like to avoid the pain of reinstalling all my apps, so a dual boot option is a bit out of the question. I don't have the room to ghost my drive in order to revert in case I hate Win7 or it performs...
