    hardware difference between pci express 1.0 x16 and pci express 2.0 x16?

    Thanks for the replies - I didn't need to use the daughterboard PCI Express slot on the Asus motherboard as it had onboard video. I think I can probably find a newer mATX that has similar features, so in that case I can probably get away without having to use the daughterboard PCI Express...

    hardware difference between pci express 1.0 x16 and pci express 2.0 x16?

    I've searched the board and most of the discussions involving PCI Express 1.0 x16 and 2.0 x16 involve performance- however my question is a bit different.... I've got a HTPC that recently bit the dust- it was running a Asus A8N-VM CSM motherboard. The case is a Silverstone LC11 (a low...

    WTB: used GeForce 8800 GT or better

    My EVGA GeForce 8800GT took a dump on me so I'm in the market for a working replacement GeForce 8800 GT or better. Don't care about brand, but it must be PCI Express 2.0 compatible. Looking to spend around $50 + shipping. Thanks! David

    Hauppauge WinTV Scheduler help

    Hi- Having just changed over to U-verse, I had to reconfigure my HTPC to use the IR blaster feature of Hauppauge's WinTV to have it change channels for recording. Now WinTV will change channels on the STB thru the IR Blaster all day long but for some reason the WinTV scheduler will not...

    Another Silverstone LC11 power supply question

    Fantastic! I'll give this a try. Also I'll try to swap out a known good ATX PS just to power up the system to see if the IR remote starts behaving again. This should tell me for sure if it's the PS going out or if the IR is going bad. Thanks! David

    Another Silverstone LC11 power supply question

    This is on the same subject of the ps on my Silverstone LC11 that I had trouble with before (old thread here ). Back then I did get a Seasonic replacement and it's worked fine up until today when I found the HTPC had shut itself down overnight, and now the remote won't turn the HTPC on...

    Small-ish heatsink for HTPC build?

    I have Silverstone LC-11 too, with a Asus A8N-VM-CSM with a Zalman CNPS7700-CU fan, and it's gives quite a bit of room for me - no interference with anything on the mobo..... what mobo are you running with that case?

    Power supply type for Silverstone LC11 cases?

    I know when I got the case that the LC11s had a bad rep with the 'stock' 250 watt power supplies, but about the time I ordered my case Silverstone had started putting 300 watt PSs in the case (and at the time I verified that the case I had ordered was going to have a 300 in it). I had hoped...

    Power supply type for Silverstone LC11 cases?

    Got a 'indirect' reply from Silverstone. They actually passed on my inquiry to Sundial Micro who had said this was the recommended replacement: http://www.sundialmicro.com/silverstone_power_supply_sstfsp300_1944_1222.html (oh and btw it's 300 watt not 350 as I had said) However I also...

    Power supply type for Silverstone LC11 cases?

    Actually, yes- that looks a lot closer than the 1-2U power supplies. SUPPOSEDLY the one I have is a 350W PS - at least the sticker claims this. But I'll check with Silverstone first and see if they can't help me out, or at least sell me a new PS without the proverbial arm-and-a-leg...

    Power supply type for Silverstone LC11 cases?

    Well, after 2 years of use the power supply in my Silverstone LC11 just died. It just won't power up anymore. I suspect it overheated and died as when I touched the case on the power supply side it felt pretty warm... well, hot in fact (and even letting it cool down for a few hours didn't...

    Testing infrared remotes

    I tried it over the weekend, using my Sony camcorder and it worked! On the camcorder's screen I was able to see the IR itself as a flickering white light whenever I hit a button. So it's sounding like my receiver's gone byebye, so I'll have to pull it out and figure out how to fix it or...

    Testing infrared remotes

    Well, my HTPC is in a Silverstone LC11 with the IMon display and remote. IT's worked fine up until recently when slowly over a few days my remote stopped working. I say 'slowly' as I had to get closer and closer to the HTPC to get it to register the remote signals (and yes, using fresh...

    Changing a speaker's impedence?

    Correct, from what I understand most modern car stereos use 4 ohm speakers, which I guess is why it's almost impossible to find a 8 ohm speaker nowadays. What I have is a older stereo (about 40 years old) and they used 8 ohm speakers at that time. I think the total wattage per channel on...

    Changing a speaker's impedence?

    Well I have found this one place that's got the correct 8 ohm replacment speakers- at $40 each :eek: If it comes down to it I'll do it (I'll have to buy 2 of them, too :( ) but I'd like to look into this possibility, first. And yes I had thought that maybe a resistor in series would work...

    Changing a speaker's impedence?

    I've got a general electronics question - I've got a replacement car speaker for my car that's got a impedence rating of 4 ohms. My original speaker though was 8 ohms, otherwise the replacement is a perfect fit. However I've been told that the 4 ohm speaker will eventually burn out the car...
