    Show in GAL but Hide in Sharepoint?

    Our corporate sharepoint site is linked to AD and the GAL in terms of how it creates it's employee directory. If you hide an employee in Exchange 2012 in the global address list, they will be hidden from our Sharepoint intranet site and vice-versa. Anybody know of a way to show users in...

He has an education degree from university but doesn't want to be a teacher and now has a dead-end $16/hour job at a call center and it's affecting his...

    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Bluetooth Range Sucks!

    Where exactly is the Bluetooth transmitter on this motherboard? Is it the tiny blue dongle on the backplane with the Blue LED? Or is it on the motherboard and therefore can't transmit because it's trapped inside the PC case? I've read a few forum posts elsewhere about this issue and the range...

    Bay cooling fan options like Lian Li BZ-502B? Want to add fan to front of case

    I'm looking to add a fan to my 4 unused 5.25" bays. I've seen the Lian Li BZ-502B which would be cool for my other case, the Lian Li BZ-502B but for my current case I don't really want the LL logo right in the middle. Has anybody seen any other 2-4 slot bay methods to mount an 80-120mm fan...

    SSD TRIM Enabled? fsutil disabledeletenotify=48?!

    I've been trying to verify TRIM is enabled on my new SSD because I built my own custom Windows image with RT Se7en Lite (got Windows down to about 7GB installed versus 20GB) but manually configured the driver store and services and some registry settings before finalizing the image and I worried...

    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO - BIOS freezes/hangs. TRAP 00000030 when booting. Board = Toast?

    My computer in sig was working happily for months. I last did a BIOS flash about 2 weeks ago without any problem. System was overclocked to Prime stable 5GHz @ 1.425V with 100 BLCK and 50x multiplier. Nothing out of the ordinary. Pretty safe settings except 1600MHz XMP ram @ 1.65V. Last night I...

    Does SATA 6GB/S require special cables?

    Just wanted to get a quick answer about this because I have hooked up the SATA III ports on my motherboard with some old cables I had previously to match a color scheme but I have seen some other SATA cables that say 6gb/s printed on the connectors. Do I need to use new cables or will my old...

    Corsair TX850M +3.3V keeps going down!

    I keep getting a warning popping up from my motherboard utility telling me that my +3.3V is below threshold. Right now it's sitting at 2.880V and in the red. It was 2.960V earlier this morning. This is the first time it's done this in several months of ownership of the rig in my sig. What...

    Avoid Corsair Hydro coolers for now - bad batches.

    I've recently purchased an H80 and it has been nothing but disappointment. From not being able to tighten the screws due to them removing screwdriver slots when the screws are right beside motherboard heatsinks to the largest and most widespread issue which are defective pumps, I would stay away...

    Corsair H60/H70/H80/H100 guys - do your bolts have screwdriver slots?

    I just bought and installed an H80 today after finding the H100 was a few mm shy of fitting into my case properly. My fingers are pretty raw now as I've been struggling to tighten the bolts on my H80. What perplexes me is that the ones I have have no screwdriver slots cutout on the bolts so I...

    No post, nothing at all. PSU issue?

    Built a system for a friend and I insisted many times that he should get a new PSU but he said "it was okay" and re-use a 550W Antec Trio. I just want to confirm if this is a PSU issue. If we can get the computer to turn on, it will be fine but if he shuts down, often he cannot get the...

    Cities XL 2012 worth getting?

    I see this is 50% off on Steam right now for $19.99, yet most reviews have this in the low 60s. Is this game worth getting at all? My favorite game of 1994 was Sim City 2000 and that has always remained my favorite city simulator although I have enjoyed others. I briefly toyed with Sim City...

    Does anybody know what case this is? Help identifying

    I'm trying to identify what case this is. It is being sold under the store's in-house brand name so I have no idea who the real manufacturer is or where I can find reviews of it. I'm not a fan of the outside look because one side panel is pretty lame but it has a nice black interior with good...

    Corsair H80 (and others) - Can I control the speed externally?

    I've been looking into picking up an H80 but I'm concerned about fan and pump control. In the reviews I've read, it seems like the speed controls are on the waterblock. Is there any way to control these externally through software? (external utility, motherboard utility, plug into normal fan...

    2500K - do I really need aftermarket cooling? How much further could I get?

    It's been awhile since I've been in the overclocking game. I lived with my Q6600 B3 @ 3.4GHz for what seems like 3-4 years now. Amazing, the longevity of that thing. I've just upgraded and now and I am completely out of the loop of Sandy Bridge overclocking and I'm just relying on my ASUS...

    5870 2GB vs. 6970 2GB

    What differences are there between the two cards? The 5870 2GB models seem to be much cheaper than retail 6970s at the moment and I thought that their speeds were relatively comparable. Is there something new in the architecture or new features in the 6xxx series that the 5xxx series does...

    Recommendations for tower defense games?

    I am a fan of the old style tower defense games from Warcraft 3. I don't enjoy the more abstract games like desktop tower defense, something with a bit more interesting graphics and the ability to maze (not just a set road where you put towers beside it, but one where you create your own maze)...

    5870 exceed clock limit in Linux (like Afterburner's enabled unofficialOC=1 setting)

    Normally in Windows, I use MSI Afterburner with the enableunofficialoverclocking=1 flag on to get the slider to be able to go past the 900MHz limit on my XFX 5870's core clock (limited by BIOS as the maximum overdrive will let you push the card). In Ubuntu, I am trying to do the same but I...
