    Hard Drive Dead?

    I will take a look at the PCB and see what I can do. If nothing happens, I will contact WD for an RMA. Windows 7 is on one of the Intel SSD drives and my files (music, pictures, videos) is on the 1TB drive.

    Hard Drive Dead?

    I will give that a shot. Currently the PC is in IDE mode but when I tried to connect the WD HDD, I got a BSOD 101 and have gotten the BSOD 9C as well while the HDD was connected. I've read this needed more VCore, but I reset everything back to normal as soon as I was having problems initially...

    Hard Drive Dead?

    Been messing with my computer for the past 1-1.5 hrs figuring out what could be the cause of the PC not booting. Haven't checked to see if the PCB is hot (I assume on the WD HDD right), but I do so probably tomorrow or Tuesday when I get my NZXT HUE RGB Controller in the mail. Doesn't sound...

    Hard Drive Dead?

    While my WD Caviar Black (1TB) drive is powered up, my computer WILL NOT boot at all and gives me a system failure error. Currently, the drive is not powered up and my computer boots up normally. Is this a sign of HDD failure and if not, what can I do for my computer to recognize the drive in...

    Noctua D14 vs D14 SE2011

    I just bought the NH-D14 and would like to upgrade to the Haswell chipset next year. Will I be able to use the one I have now when I upgrade my processor and motherboard?

    Quiet CPU coolers that don't require to take out the Mobo?

    Yeah, but you have to remove the mobo to fit the provided bracket because I installed mine today. Is pretty quiet but on my i7 920, idle temps are between 40-45 with it being 70+F in my room.

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    After responding to my previous post, I realized you had waterblocks on the GPUs. Not sure how my stock reference card will do, but should find out soon enough. I may have to get rid of my GTX 480 and go with the newer AMD cards which produces less power, quieter, and less heat.

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    seano, what are the idle and load temps for your GTX 480s? WIth my HAF 932, my GTX 480 will idle anywhere from 50-55C and load from 95-100C, which is not good I know. I am hoping the Switch 810 will cool my components, especially the GTX 480, a little better.

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    One last question, is it better to place 3 fans in the top and 1 in the front, or 2 in the top and 2 in the front for better airflow? I have three additional fans coming so a total of seven will be used in the case.

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    Ok, because the Xigmatec fans I put on my HAF 932 is way too loud. Plus I was looking for a new case to use :)

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    If I decide to add an additional 140mm fan up top, one for the GPU fan (on HDD bay) and another on the front of the case (all stock NZXT fans), how loud will the PC be since the fans are rated at 26.52 dBA? Also, is it worth adding another fan up top and in the front for better cooling?

    Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler

    I was wondering if it would be a good choice to "upgrade" my Prolimatech Megahalem to the DH-14?? At 3.6GHz, I get load temps between 57-62 degrees using LinX with an ambient temperature of 27C (very hot here in Charlotte). Idle in my case is around 40-45C. Would this be a worthy purchase or...

    Reccomend me a new case.

    What about the NZXT Switch 810 full tower case? - It can hold up to 6 3.5" drive bays - Has 3 dust filters (one for the PSU, one for the front bottom of case, and one in the front where the 140mm fan is located) - Excellent cable management - Is wide to fit all varieties of motherboards +...

    NZXT Officially Reveals the Switch 810

    I am looking to upgrade my case as well and this caught my eye. First question, how well are the included fans on noise level and cooling? Also, where can I find identical NZXT white fans to buy to install additional fans in the case if I wanted to?

    OC OK but Games Freeze

    well, I had to increase voltage one notch and PCI-E to 101. OCCT got my GPU over 100C so that was a failure. Heaven 2.0 is doing OK and has been running for the past 1 hour.

    OC OK but Games Freeze

    Case is the HAF 932 and haven't had a chance to test out my PC yet. Will update possibly tmr on my results.

    OC OK but Games Freeze

    Thanks for the reply's. I'll give OCCT and Heaven 2.0 a try and see what happens. Also, all CPU related features are disabled in BIOS so it that can't be the problem.

    Program used to test OCing Stability

    Most ppl use LinX (run 20 passes), Intel Burn Test (20 passes as well), or Prime95 (I do blend - 6+ hours). To me, running a stability test for only 5 runs doesn't stress the CPU enough to see if it is truly stable or not. Also, you want to keep a close watch on your load temps (stay below...

    OC OK but Games Freeze

    I've OC my i7 920 to 4.12GHz and it has passed LinX with 20 passes and 7.5 hours of Prime95, but whenever I play games, my PC will freeze after 20-30 minutes. I tried upping the voltage with no luck. Is there a reason I can pass stability tests but not play games past a certain point?? Too...

    Replacing Stock HAF932 Fans

    To better cool my HAF932 with replacing all my stock fans with XIGMATEK XLF-F1253 120mm, I have a concern on how to connect the 4 side fans up. Do I need to get a molex cable that will enable me to hook all four up at the same time... would something like this work...

    480 overclock question

    I got my gtx 480 to 820/1640/1945 on stock voltage. Granted the temps have gone up to 95 degrees with 100% fan speed, but I was getting close to those temps on stock speeds.

    OK thanks. I'll give it a shot.

    Zalman VF3000 GPU Cooler

    It probably was from getting the thermal paste on part of the board, especially where the RAM chips are. The paste the cooler comes with didn't come out very well. I guess I am SOL or there might be something I can do about it.

    Zalman VF3000 GPU Cooler

    I just installed the Zalman GPU cooler to my GTX480 and I know I installed the HS to my card perfectly, but for some reason, when I turn on my computer and get to the Windows logo screen, I am seeing major video artifacts. I do have an additional GTX 480 so I can use my computer, but it would...

    HAF 932 Airflow and cable management

    Here is what my case looks so far. I did have an additional GTX480 in SLI but my cards were running WAY TOO HOT so I took out one. :( I would like to put a XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 WC kit for my CPU, but don't know if the triple Rad will fit in the top of the case.

    HAF 932 Airflow and cable management

    I just redid my cable management and it looks much better now. Granted, it took a good part of the night to figure out how I wanted all the cables routed in the back.

    i7 920 OC Look OK?

    I believe I can get by with 1.225 CPU core voltage at 3.8GHz, but I left the setting at 1.23125 for 3.9GHz and didn't bother to adjust it. I'll give IBT another try for 20 passes and see how that goes. Then will probably do Prime95 for 6 hours some other day.

    i7 920 OC Look OK?

    Thanks, the thing with Linx, I did the stability test at 3.9GHz and passed with 20 passes at a problem size less than 25000 with lower temps. However, at 25000, 3.9GHz failed almost immediately. Also 3.9 passed Intel Burn Test with 10 passes at very high. Does this mean my 3.9 is stable as well...

    i7 920 OC Look OK?

    I just overclocked my Core i7 920 to 3.8GHz and would like some feedback to see if my settings are OK. The only thing I am worried about is the temps which are varily high for idle and load. Keep in mind, my ambient room temperature is 81F. Idle is mid to high 40s and with the LinX test I did...

    DVI-D to HDMI Cable

    Nvidia Surround + 850w PSU

    No OC on the GTX 480s due to me being close to the limits already. How much does a monitor typically put out in watts?

    Nvidia Surround + 850w PSU

    I'm thinking about going Nvidia Surround very soon and was worried if my Corsair TX850 will be able to run my GTX 480 SLI setup + 2 additional monitors?
