    Thinking about switching from Server 2012 to FreeNAS

    Project: Make my 290x not so damned hot and loud!

    So, I picked up a 290x from a member here, and have been mostly happy with it. Like all 290x's, it runs hot and loud. So, after some research, I picked up a Gelid Icy Vision rev 2 for it. Core temps and VRM2 temps dropped a LOT. However, VRM1 temps are still sky high. I came across a user...

    Asus Maximus VI Hero PCIe not detecting gfx cards

    I've got an interesting situation with a buddy's PC... He's got an Asus Maximus VI Hero with an i5-4670k. It was working perfectly fine until he came over today and we started tinkering in the BIOS to overclock it. Now, it flat out refuses to detect any graphics card in any of the PCIe...

    The Division - Snowdrop Engine Trailer

    Most of it looks pretty standard for a next gen engine. The part that really impressed me was the surface reactions to being shot.

    Cisco 891-W

    Just got one of these bad boys for christmas. This is my first non-consumer level router. Can any of you experienced gents point me in the direction of a good guide of how to use this thing? I'm under the impression that it's console-based, correct? I don't have the manual for it, but I'm...

    WD green 2tb died. Need a reliable replacement.

    My less than 2yr old WD EARS 2tb drive just bit the dust. Over 400 bad sectors. Not getting another one of those. My Sammy F3 and F4 2tb drives are still going strong. What's reliable these days in the 2+ tb market? Haven't kept up with platter drives since the floods. Forget price for a...

    New 5870, some games artifact... others don't

    I'm splitting this off into a more specific thread. I was posting in the Bad Company 2 thread, but my problem is wider than that. I'm having an artifacting issue on my new Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X in the form of flickering pixels (usually white, but sometimes a brownish). It happens in the little...

    Update to 197.45, performance tanks

    I updated to the 197.45 drivers when I saw that they were out. I did the thorough uninstall, safe-mode driver cleaner method. Now, my performance has absolutely TANKED in everything. I've tried the last 5 driver versions too, to no avail. Any ideas? Nothing has changed on the software or...

    DFI LanParty DK X48-T2RS doesn't play well with all mem slots filled?

    I recently picked up another matching 2x2gb set of G.SKILL Pi Black PC6400, since it was so cheap. I wanted to slap it into my DFI LanParty DK X48-T2RS board, but it hangs during POST when all 4 slots are filled. I can mix and match any 2 of the 4 and it's fine, also I memtested every...

    Disabling CPU throttling

    I just got my new build put together, and I disabled what I thought was the throttling in the BIOS on my DFI LanParty DK X48-T2RS (EIST... SpeedStep), but my C2D is still dropping the multiplier down and throttling back to 2399MHz vs the 3600 I have it set to. What am I missing? Thanks for any...

    Creative has linux X-Fi drivers out, finally

    Didn't see this posted; thought it would be useful to some (myself included). The main reason I hadn't adopted Ubuntu for every day use was the lack of support for my Creative X-Fi soundcard. Well, creative has finally answered some prayers and released drivers for linux (working under...

    Messed up DVI port.

    I'm working with a funky acting 7800GTX. The DVI port closest to the HD-out port works fine, but the other DVI port has a green tint over the display. This wasn't a problem before because I was simply able to use the good port. Now it will show no display unless the monitor is on the bad DVI...

    Samsung 931bw won't do native res in DVI

    I picked up a Samsung 931bw on Black Friday, and its native resolution is 1440x900. It supports both DVI and VGA, but it only came with a VGA cable, so that's what I've been using. I just bought a DVI cable last night, and it just will NOT do its native resolution with it. It works fine when I...
