    Should I keep my KRK 6 G2 + KRK10S or use Gaming PC Speakers?

    I dabbled in music production two years ago. I bought KRK 6's, KRK 10 Sub, and a soundcard for around $900-1k for all. I've maybe used the system about 10 hours since then. Unfortunately I didn't realize producing music was more than a full-time job so I simply haven't had time to use my...

    Is hard drive clicking ALWAYS bad?

    For as long as I can remember one of my drives in an external enclosure has been clicking. Now, I'm not sure if this is me being lucky and it not failing, or if some drives are just loud. It's not the "seeking" noise, but it's definitely a loud click when it spins up. Bad, or probably ok...

    Display has weird color vertical lines all of the sudden

    I got home and one of my screens (I have 3 in eyefinity) had tons of vertical colored lines going through it. Initially I thought it would be my video cards but two things disprove that. 1) The two other displays in mirror mode look fine. 2) There are still vertical lines after turning it off...

    BF3 Crossfire not working.

    BF3 beta crossfire was working. I noticed something odd at launch today (really low FPS); so I then put on my afterburner monitor and noticed that only one card was in use. One was 99% the other was 0%. This means that crossfire isn't running. Anyway, right now I'm in the process of trying to...

    So what's a good over clock for 6950's?

    I bought the 6950's when they came out. I have 2x 6950's. I "unlocked" them when they came out. So they have the extra shaders and I believe I OC'd slightly to what CCC allowed. It's also a little higher on voltage I think due to the unlock but not much - I don't remember what the process...

    Strange 2x 6950 crossfire behavior (OC'd)

I'd usually get about 50-70fps with 6048x1200 max settings besides the bloom and now I'm dipping below 30 very...
