    Chipset fan adjustment on 8KDA3J?

    I picked some parts out for a friend, including the EPoX 8KDA3J S754 nForce3 motherboard. Everything is pretty quiet except for the high pitched chipset fan which I had assumed was adjustable. There are no options in the BIOS and speedfan doesn't seem to be able to adjust it, either. Is there...

    All(3) My Soundcards Crackle on NF7-S v2

    My cards only crackle every 7 minutes or so, but it's still annoying, and it shouldn't happen. Is it possible that this is because of a bad PCI controller or something? My onboard sound doesn't crackle at all, but it's on the PCI bus as well, so I don't know. I've only tried one PCI slot...

    PSU for htpc/fileserver

    Converting FROM dynamic disks?

    I have a 160GB hard drive that is a dynamic disk from when I used win2k. I've heard that you can't use dynamic disks on other platforms and other bad things involving data security and such. I know that there are "very few reasons to use dynamic disks" so I just want to make it a normal disk...

    Can I make a disk image, format a raid0 array, and then restore my data?

    I need to reformat my raid0 array because I messed up the cluster and stripe size. Can I make a disk image using partition magic or something, change my stripe size, format the array, and then restore my data using the disk image? If I could avoid reactivating XP, that would be nice, but I can...

    How do you format for a 128k raid stripe?

    I saw on the abit forums that you're supposed to format your stripe using the same cluster size as your stripe size. I settled on 128k, but neither partition magic nor windows disk management will let me format with a 128k cluster size. I even did it once before in win2k, but XP won't let me.
