    power supply runs fine with paperclip, but not with motherboard

    So yeah, Ive got a little power supply here, unfortunately the only one I have that fits a case I'm playing with. Its a FSP170-60SI, TFX form factor. I have 2 different ITX motherboards that both boot and run with another supply, but will not start with this one. When I do the paperclip the...

    FS Cooler Master HAF 912 with fans and controller

    I bought this off a local Seattle area [H]er a few years ago, I think he was moving to Japan or something, so I thought I would offer it here first before going to the usual markets. These are large cases, suitable for powerful builds, with provisions for internal or external radiator mounting...

    WTB yet another laptop for the girl

    This forum has been a veritable gold mine of surplussed corporate laptops over the years. I have not purchased a new laptop in many years as the [H] provides perfectly serviceable units time after time. The girl's most recent one suffered some sort of mobo short a couple days ago. She wants...

    can't seem to link youtube videos

    is this on purpose? the forum seems to wrap any link in media tags and abbreviate it, at least for me, is it PEBKAC?

    Western hemisphere source for the Jingway DP1200 (EK DCP 4.0) pump

    These are excellent pumps. EK used to rebrand them as the DCP 4.0 but no longer has them available. I had one in a build that ran continuously since 2009 before it started making bearing noise and surging. Due to the layout, and already owning the matching reservoir, I wanted to replace it...

    recommend a holiday coop game

    I have old buddies that come to town over the holidays. We usually get a "LAN" going, drink some whiskey and enjoy some in person gaming. Had an absolute blast with L4D and L4D2 a couple years, played insurgency one year, was OK I guess, War Thunder last year was meh. I am really hoping to...

    Was a time when this was just about the sexiest RAM you could get. 2GB kit, 4 sticks CMX512-3200LLPRO in very good cosmetic condition. These are the ones with the RAM utilization blinkenlights, tell me you didn't want these back in the day. They work fine but I am done playing with the last...

    choosing 24GB for X58

    So, I am still nursing this ASUS R3F/i7 970 setup along and have recently been getting application low RAM notices and crashes with the loads I work with every day. The rig currently has 3x4GB of GSkill Ripjaws PC3-12800 (F3-12800CL9-4GBRL) in it and sits at about 60% RAM utilization without...

    WTB DDR3 triple channel kit

    I'm wanting to nurse this X58 setup a bit longer and I'm starting to run up against my installed 12Gb of RAM. CPU-Z shows the existing 3x4Gb kit as PC3-12800 at 1.5V so if someone has something to match that, or a 3x8Gb, or even a faster 6x4Gb kit I guess. Thanks in advance guys.
