    Linux USB boot: vmlinuz needs to load USB modules - Car PC

    It's a HP t5700, retired cash register. I'd prefere to stick with LinuxICE and Puppy. LinuxICE is a dedicated car pc OS, really clean and simple and works fantastic. Puppy is just there in case I need an actual OS but I'll more than likely never use it. I really just need to be able to load...

    Linux USB boot: vmlinuz needs to load USB modules - Car PC

    So I haven't really diddled with Linux for many years, I've recently been revisiting the subject because I want to install a car PC and ditch my awful Sirius radio. Anyhow here is the situation. I have a respectable thin client that has 256 megs of onboard flash that's horribly slow. The...

    FS / FT: DFI Infinity P965-s Dark Mobo - LGA 775

    DFI INFINITY P965-S Socket LGA 775. Has a surprising amount of bells and whistles for the price. Really a great motherboard. I've been fiddling with PCs for a pretty long time and in recent years I've come to love DFI for their rock solid reliability. I've used the DFI brand exclusively for the...

    Old DFI Nforce2 with constant random hangs

    So I dug out all the parts that used to be my main rig (it's actually still in my sig, which hasn't changed since 2004 heh) and hooked it up in my living room with the intention of using it as an HTPC. I quickly realized it wasn't running quite right, it constantly hangs for no apparent reason...

    Question on Gf6800 Ultra Bios

    yes, a GT bios on an Ultra will most definitely boost performance at the same clock speeds, Thugsrock over at anandtech and bleedingedge has been trying to do this since he got his eVGA 6800LE because he was intriqued with the large gains from the GT bios he flashed his card to. the downfall at...

    TCCD woes - Geil Ultra X

    the Infinitys stock bios allows for 3.3vs to the DIMMs,its PERFECT for BH-5 which actually runs better timings at high speeds(than the TCCD) if it gets enough voltage.

    TCCD woes - Geil Ultra X

    the L12 trick is just for the NF-7 I believe, the DFI doesn't need any mods at all to him 500mhz and abve. my old ram did so on the stock motherboard and bios as i said before. it seems, and as its already been stated, the TCCD just wasn't meant for the NF2 :( a sad day indeed

    TCCD woes - Geil Ultra X

    Trust me, I know my motherboard isn't a problem. I took out my Geil Ultra series for this Ultra X. With my old ram I was able to pull 500mhz(loose timings of course) with this motherboard and stock bios, so its def not the problem.

    TCCD woes - Geil Ultra X

    Well I read all the fantastic results everyone gets but mine just seem to performe poorly. This in particular is bothering me, from a review: link 2-2-2-11 @ 240, wtf! I can't even get mine stable running 220 @ 2-2-2-11. does this strike anyone as odd? In order to run 220 my timings...

    The quicklaunch is called Aquadock. Its a ripoff of objectbar, its strictly for shortcuts so it doesn't get in the way trying to act as a start bar. It also uses 100k of ram when its not being hovered over, and its free and doesn't need to be installed. Its a bitch finding PNG icons to use on...

    One 80mm silent fan in all my dedicated folders keep my PCs more than adequetely cooled with 45C max core temps. Servers generally use large fans due to multiple processors and extreme hot running high RPM SCSI drives.

    The average CPU life is huge, folding will hardly make a difference. Changes in temp, the shrinking and expanding of the die, shortens a CPUs life moreso than load. When you actually USE your CPU on and off your subjecting it to constant changes in temp. At least with a folding rig the CPU...
