    WD software not detecting new WD external, though Win10 does.

    Have strange problem where the WD software does not reconize my new WD P10 external. Windows sees it fine and I can use it normally but WDs own software does not recognize it in any way like it does my other WD drives. Googled and just cannot find a fix for this. Any help?

    Why does Windows 10 keep waking up my external hard drives?

    For the past month or so my external hard drives have been waking up a lot more frequently. Every few minutes in fact. I made no changes to my system so I suspect it was an update. I's to a point I have to unplug them. What can be causing them to wake up? Anyone else experiencing more frequent...

    How has your experience been with the Asus ROG Maximus VIII Hero? Good, bad?

    I bought this board on Black Friday due to getting it for about $165 after rebates but even at that price I'm now worried after thoroughly reading more user reviews and especially because I still cant find the 6700K at an affordable price so I probably wont be able to build my system until next...

    Which Z170 motherboard is looking like the best bang for the buck?

    Each manufacture has like 10 Z170 motherboard to choose from so it is sort of daunting. Narrow it down to under $200 and it is still daunting as some manufacturers like ASUS has boards(ASUS Z170-A and ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming) just $5 apart in pricing. The MSI Z170A is looking really good...

    Was it my PSU all along? Will a faulty PSU still power on a system?

    So about a week back my PC suddenly shuts off after running great for 5 years. I restarted the system and no video signal. All the fans including the CPU and video card fans came on.

    Will 8GB(4x2GB)PC2-8500 draw alot more power than 4GB(4X1GB)PC-3200?

    I know this might be a odd and obvious question but does 8GB(4x2GB)PC2-8500 draw alot more power than 4GB(4X1GB)PC-3200? I ask because I'm pondering if I should jump on a new PSU right away because in my new setup the ram is the only thing there might be a major difference power consumption wise.
