    Latest PhysX Source Code Now Available Free on GitHub

    This came up in another thread, and I hadn't seen it before, so I figured it deserved its own post. https://developer.nvidia.com/content/latest-physx-source-code-now-available-free-github I'm not a registered developer, so I don't know all the legal details, but this could lead to open...

    GTX970 with AIO CPU cooler

    INTRO: I stumbled across the Kraken G10 on sale a while back. I hadn't been paying much attention to hardware, so I wasn't familiar with it. I looked it up, thought it was cool, and found a deal on a Tt Water 3.0 Performer to go with it. The intention was to put it on my HD5870, which...

    Kraken G10 with GTX970 in PC-K63?

    I found a deal on a Kraken G10 and a Tt Water 3.0 Performer. I picked them up, planning to put them on my HD5870. I previously had an Accelero Twin Turbo Pro installed on it to quiet things down, but it has remained stock after a warranty replacement. I have a Corsair H60 (replaced a dead...

    Lightning cable extension?

    Has anyone seen a Lightning extension cable yet? I need to convert a 30-pin connector to Lightning and then extend it a few feet. Ideally, I'd like a version of Apple's $40 adapter cable but with a much longer cable. I'm also ok with the smaller $30 adapter coupled with a male-female...

    iPhone external mic without headphones?

    There are some apps/devices out there that let you use your iPhone as an amp/effects pedal with your electric guitar. You get a cable with a 1/4" jack for your guitar on one end, and a 3.5mm plug and jack on the other end. It plugs into your iPhone to get the guitar input into the phone, and...

    Good dock extender cable

    I've been looking for a rather specific dock extender cable to use with my iPhone. I recently picked up the iPhone adapter for my car's head unit. It's an older model, so it uses 12V FireWire charging (as most did at that time). This means I've got a chunky charge adapter on the end of the...

    Handy util for slow response to digital signals on Z-5500

    I have the Logitech Z-5500 fed by the optical output on my X58 board. I didn't notice this issue with XP, but on Windows 7 (x64 Pro), it suspends when there is no sound playing. The optical output seems to shut down, causing the Z-5500 to display "No Digital Data" on the screen. When a sound...

    Office Web Components in Windows x64

    We have a legacy Access database with a web frontend (the standard one exported from Access). When I first switched to Win7 x64, I wasn't able to get it working properly - problems with OWC and x64. Eventually I did get it working. For a number of months, I've been using IE 32-bit, launched...

    HD5770 bottlenecked by 9800GT for PhysX

    I have a few different cards around here, so I thought I'd test this out. My system had a GTX285 for graphics and a 9800GT for PhysX. I found a good deal so I decided to buy an HD5870. While that was in shipment, I decided to pick up an HD5770 locally to make sure that I didn't have issues...

    Best way to set up what I've got?

    Could HD5XXX owners run a benchmark for me?

    Is a 5770 a good test of a switch to ATI?

    I'm wanting to switch to a 5870, but I've had Nvidia for a while (that's just what happened to be the right value at the times I was shopping). I want to physically try a card in my system before I commit to it. However, there aren't any 5870s in stock locally. Do you think that swapping a...

    Where to buy a video card?

    I'm thinking about upgrading to a 5870. I've had Nvidia for a long time (since my GF2, maybe longer), simply because that's what I got good deals on. I've heard all the horror stories of ATI drivers, and I've heard that they're really not that bad now, and I've heard about GSoD stuff, etc...
