    ASUS Z97-A does not POST with intel PCIe SSD installed

    An update: I have found a forum post explaining what is going on here: Intel P3600/P3700 and ASRock Extreme6 / Z97 chipset fixes Basically, the SSD has SPD data at the same address as one or two of the RAM banks, and that confuses the board as the board queries all PCIe and ram banks for...

    ASUS Z97-A does not POST with intel PCIe SSD installed

    I wanted to upgrade my system with a PCIe SSD (Intel P3600). However, the system will not POST when the SSD is installed in the second PCIe x 16 slot. (Also when it is in the first or in the third, but I think the third is only x1 or x2) I am using the latest BIOS (2801), and have a NVMe...

    Same Day Delivery Not A Priority For Online Shoppers

    Here in Germany standard delivery is usually 1-2 days, 3 at max, and I'm fine with waiting a day or two for anything that's low priority enough that I order it online.

    Ubuntu 12.04 vs. Windows 7: Intel Loses On Linux

    So sandy bridge GPU was faster under linux, the windows driver has improved faster than the linux driver, and now is faster. This doesn't make the linux driver worse than before, so who cares?

    april 30th fools by wife

    I've had a CPU go up to 101C when some gunk got stuck in the pins of my CPU block after returning from a lan, its possible to have it not shutdown. CPU still works fine 3 years later as well.

    I just built my first watercooling and I'm wery worried :(

    Flip the pump upside down then rotate it by 90 degrees, so basicly have it standing on the end then you can get rid of alot of bends.

    How long will a radioator last me?

    I replaced my mora1 radiator last week after it ran for over 10 years in 3 or 4 different cases, and the radiator itself was still fine I just wanted to use the mora3 because it has proper connections and is even larger. (The mora 1 just has 10mm or 12mm tubes coming out the back, and the...

    Metal tower reservoir with fins?

    I'm fairly sure my aquatube is aluminum, so I would be replacing one aluminum res with a different one. However I cant find this in stock anywhere anyhow.

    Metal tower reservoir with fins?

    Well short of only using copper fittings I am going to be mixing metals anyhow, so I don't worry about that. The aluminium aquatube has been working fine for the last 10 years.

    Metal tower reservoir with fins?

    Yup thats exactly what I meant. I was thinking of switching to an external res and I do not trust the plastic ones.

    Metal tower reservoir with fins?

    I remember finding a reservoir made out of metal with fins a couple of years ago, but lost my bookmark. It looks sort of like the zalman reservator except it did not have a pump etc in it. Am I imagining things or does/did this exist?

    bundymania - Watercooling Parts & Systems Gallery

    Ok, I had thought it might improve passive airflow if it could rise through the fins instead of having to move from front to back. I probably will end up going with 2 or 3 fans because my GPU apparently produces way too much heat for passive cooling, and will delay the upgrades until ivy bridge...

    Experiences with Mo-Ra3's or Phobya Xtrem 1260 Radiators?

    I am running a stock 5970 and a slightly overclocked 2500K on a 10 year old MoRa-1, with 3 soundless 120mm fans. (I had previously been cooling only the CPU fully passive, but with CPU+GPU that ddn't work anymore) Since I have SSDs and only 1 case fan and 1 PSU fan, I cannot hear the PC even in...

    bundymania - Watercooling Parts & Systems Gallery

    Thanks, I'll get the normal edition then since I'm mounting it on the side of the case. One stupid question, if I run it passively, will it work better if the fins are orientated vertically vs horizontally, to ensure the heat from the rad generates thermal convection.

    Any idea what the difference between the mora 3 LT and PRO is? On the watercool website all listed details are identical. I'm thinking of replacing my >10 year old MoRa1 with one of the new ones, just to have a rad with actual threads instead of just pipes coming out of the back.

    Intel's P67 and H67 motherboard lineup

    Ok, it appears that does not help against the throttling issue. After about 5 minutes @ 75watts /4.1ghz my CPU goes back down to 3.3ghz / 50 watts. However I have not seen it drop down even further.

I just compared the photos I took of the board I sent in with my new one and...
