    overcloking

    Rule #1: If you have to ask these questions be prepared to buy new stuff when you break yours. Rule #2: You asked so I will tell you. (I cannot be held liable) If you can raise the speed of your CPU without raising the voltage, good. If your PC becomes unstable at a certain speed then...

    X-Fi buzzing/static

    I have used multiple pairs of headphones and have restarted my PC. The problem doesn't go away. At first I thought that perhaps my cold cathode light or my TV tuner were interfering with the card. I removed them. I still have the problem.

    Best way to talk my friend out of a Alienware?

    Just tell him to order a Fostech PC. Fostech uses only the highest quality parts to insure that you get years of joy from your PC. Tell him it will be A LOT cheaper, and of about the same quality. (of course he won't get the alienware case) If anyone wants a fully customized Fostech PC, just...

    Win 98 installation problems

    Right now I'm using Disk Druid to repartition and re-install RH9. I'm deleting preexisting partitions and loading RH9 very lightly. I will then install 98SE. I'm just going to use this system for 3 months at university until black friday rolls around, then I'll get a new notebook.

    PSU help

    Well, I have received/installed the PSU. It appears to be made to a higher quality than my old Raidmax. I don't know yet if I made the right decision to go with this PSU, but it's CERTAINLY better than my old one. (the voltages are much more stable)

    PSU help

    I don't agree that a review is worthless if it isn't conducted in exactly this manner. Yes, I do agree that it isn't as worthy, but it is CERTAINLY better than nothing. I perhaps shouldn't have reccomended this PSU yet. Correct I shouldn't reccomend or dismiss it until I have first hand...

    PSU help

    I suggest the Logisys PS500CLA PSU. It looks nifty, It's cost efficient, but more importantly I read several reviews that all say that this is a very stable PSU. The reviews also included that it's pretty heavy (for the case being half lexan). (this is good) It has fairly large capcitors and...

    WTB: good PSU

    I would like to buy a good PSU for my PC. When I say good, I mean high quality and stable. I don't need PC Power & Cooling's latest masterpiece. I don't need a 24 Pin Motherboard connection either. This PSU will be used to power the system in my signature. I would like over 400 Watts...

    making epoxy...safe?

    I did it. It didn't help too much. It did help 4 mhz on the core and 4mhz on the RAM though. The card is an ATI Rage 2C PCI. The stock clock was 75/83. I now have it at 99/118. I ran some benchmarks and it has definately improved performance.

    Bad DIMM slots, help please

    Well, first of all you've got to make sure it isn't the RAM itself that is dead. You should put thos sticks in slots 1 and 2 and run a testing program such as Windows Memory Diagnostic or memtest86. If it turns out that is is the slots, make sure they're clean and the RAM is seated in the slot...

    I'm going to agree with 9600 5500 9250 5200 MX4000/440 The MX440 and MX4000 are the same card. They basically rnamed the MX440 the MX4000 for release with the FX line.

    remove shroud+addfan?

    ahhh... thank you. Now... do you think a fan mounted on the heatsing would make it cooler?

    remove shroud+addfan?

    Well, the reasons I would bother are that I want to overclock the card soon, I have tons of fans lying around, and I'm bored. I'm not really sure of the temp of my card. How can I check that?

    remove shroud+addfan?

    Would it be wise to remove the fan shroud from my 6800 and just mount a fan directly upon the heatsink. I removed the shroud on Saturday for some cleaning and noticed that the heatsink is rather small. So...Would adding a fan directly to the heatsink provide better cooling, or not?
