    Post your "rate my cables" here

    That's my little secret? haha, It's organized chaos. BUT, everything fits and the side panel slides on with no effort. I'll post a pic of the back when I go through to re-apply my thermal paste some time in the next few days.

    where is the static coming from? Have you checked your audio connections? Could be interference of some sort, The onboard soundcard could be going. If its from the speakers, unplug them, do you still get the noise?

    Help with SSD setup on M4A79XTD EVO

    1: Any of the blue SATA ports should work just fine. Correct on the black port being a Marvell port. Those have known issues in terms of compatibility and drivers. stay away from it IMO. 2: Not 100% positive on ACPI ACIP( but I would say enabled) and couldn't give ya an honest answer on the...

    Switching motherboards

    ...are you overclocking the processor? My point being..... In my experiences, Biostar has not had the most success with putting out better quality products. And it could very well be that your processor is burning up the vrms. The board is only a 4+1 phase, and I really doubt its a 4+1 of any...

    UPDATE: So I went ahead and did some testing and troubleshooting. Tested each stick individually and in each RAM slot on the motherboard. And only one of the sticks is popping up with errors. I guess its RMA time. Thanks munkle and triligy456 for replying!

    alright guys, well, the last couple days I went through and began overclocking my system. Everything started out smooth, but then I started to hit a wall. It began with prime95 coming up with errors after an overclock, so changes were made and so on as one would normally do to stabilize an OC. I...

    ~Day off, New desk, Some work~

    no, I do not. and in the pictures I have a blue cold cathode in the case. I have taken it out as it was too bright for my liking. I now have the LED's of my case fans lighting the inside. So its not nearely as bright and actually has a nicer effect on how the hardware looks.

    What can I do to this pc?

    the PSU was replaced less than a year ago with a 400w ultra. no its not the best out there and not many like ultras but it gave me the best bang for the buck back when I bought it and its still running strong. And i agree, DDR RAM is expensive. It looks like about $50 for 1Gb? Holy Crap...
