    ThinkBook 16p Gen 2 AMD (16”) | Lenovo US Can try CLEAR10, CLEAR15DEAL to get it a bit lower. Decent deal for those looking for a gaming capable laptop without the gamer look.

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    There is now a rev3 for 240 and 280 (and possibly 120). Changes seem to be the installation only: I bought a 280 recently and got the rev3. The new AM4 mounting system allows for shifting the mounting for Zen2/3 but is not compatible with boards...

    HP L2201x 21.5" 1080p $80

    This monitor only has DisplayPort. On the plus side it is a MVA panel at 1080p and extremely portable. Good for a cheap monitor for your laptop if it has DP. Newegg business but they do not verify your tax id (or you can...

    I am trying to set up a zero config vpn so that all internet access through the client computer is tunneled to the server before actually going to the internet. I know a VPN server can do this. However I have an additional requirement in that the server's ip address is unknown and I have no...

    L shaped PCI-E power cable

    Has anyone ever seen a PCI-E power cable that is L shaped? As in it is perpendicular to how the connector is located. I have an HTPC and nowadays a lot of cards have the power connector at the top of the card adding a good amount of height. Been looking around but thought I'd throw it out here...

    SSD write slows to a crawl

    I have a 128GB Samsung PM800 SSD. Read is perfectly fine. When I try to write to it however it transfers fine for around awhile but inevitably slows to a crawl (like a few kb) before picking up speed again for a bit and slowing. Was using this in OSX so I thought it might be an OSX issue but...

    Confused about 3.3v output

    I have a 1.8" SSD that I was looking to hook up to my desktop. It requires 3.3v. Looking at my PSU specs it lists a 3.3v output (Corsair 750TX) yet I was under the impression that the molex connectors are where does the 3.3v connector come from?

    Volume db calculation help

    I was curious as to how loud 95db sounded like and realized that I have no easy way to tell. So I thought to calculate out the maximum volume of my Ipod Touch with a Shure SCL3 and estimate. So what I know: Shure SCL is 115db/mW with 26ohms impedance. Ipod Touch outputs 30.6mW at 10ohms. So...

    EMU 0404 vs Auzen X-Meridian

    Thinking of going OSX totally. Anyway the X-Meridian or any CMI8788 for that matter does not work on OSX due to lack of drivers. After looking around a bit the EMU 0404 seems to be the best bet. I am only interested in stereo analog output as I mostly use headphones. How does the EMU 0404...

    X-Meridian OPAMP problem

    I finally got around to replacing the OPAMPs. I tried to replace the stock with 4 LM4562NA. However I found serious static at higher frequencies and volume. It is as if the OPAMPS just ran out of gas. I tested all 4 in the front L/R channel and all have the same problem. Switched back to stock...

    I have Vista Business 64bit installed via Bootcamp on my MBP 4.1. Vista itself loads fine. However before it actually goes into loading there is a 1 minute or so dead time with a flashing cursor on the top left. Anyone else have this issue or better yet know how to fix it? Thanks.

    File corruption after OCing

    System in spec except I OCed it a bit more to 3.75GHz. Even before I took it further I noticed some issues but did not think much of it at the time.

    ATI + Nvidia card in one computer?
