    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update- October 17th

    So I was having serious issues with my system due to the Fall Creators Update. Long story short my system was turning off in games during 3d accelerated scenes, before any 3d video was displayed. Menus without any rendering was fine, but as soon as 3d scenes came out, boom, straight off. Turns...

    The Joys of Troubleshooting

    PSA that weird shit happens. I'd been having a very strange issue with my system since Saturday. 3d accelerated scenes were causing my computer to power off. No CTD, no BSOD, just off. 90% of the time I'd have to power cycle the PSU and wait for caps to discharge before it'd power on again, 10%...

    MSI VR ONE - Wireless VR Backpack Review @ [H]

    How do you connect to the Rift's cameras around the room? There some wireless USB hub that comes with it, or is this Vive only at this point?

    AMD Announce Vega Frontier Edition

    The people saying Q3 aren't entirely wrong. Financially, July 1st is the start of Q3 so the revenue from Vega will be booked in Q3. Releasing half way through June isn't going to change that much.

    Dell Has No Future Because It Lacks a Public Cloud

    And? They still have it. The article doesn't even mention that fact. Even if it did, I doubt they'd go into any detail as to WHY they're getting out of it. It's a pretty bad article.

    Dell Has No Future Because It Lacks a Public Cloud

    Dell bought EMC last year, forming Dell EMC... So this means Dell now owns VMware. They also offer a cloud service called vCloud Air. Technically you're right, there isn't a cloud service with "Dell" in the name, but that's splitting hairs. I'm not saying the product is great, hell, they're...

    Next Generation High-End Gaming Headsets Go beyond Sound

    A good set of headphones and a clip on or magnetic mic is always going to be the best option. In 6 months when the mic dies, you only have to replace that rather than the whole headset.

    how long has your monitor lasted you?

    I have a viewsonic VP2030b that just caffed it last week or it'd be that, but the 3007WFP-HC's the viewsonic left behind have been working fine since 2007.

    Ousted Volkswagen CEO Might Still Get $67M Payday

    "A contract is a contract" is fine, but the fact that these contracts exist at all is source of outrage. "Because the risk is high" is horseshit, you're telling me that getting paid over 1000x the median wage in America isn't compensation enough? Ok then.

    Very Urgent - HDD is Unaccessable and Clicking

    I know this isn't helping, but relying on an 8 year old HD as your sole storage point for very important stuff isn't an optimal solution... Back on topic. The sound you are describing either indicates that there has been damage done to either the heads, or the "alignment track" on the platters...

    SeaSonic M12II Power Supply Lucky Draw

    Every one of my Seasonic (or Seasonic built) power supplies are still working strong, but if I had to pick one it would be my X-1050. Runs cool, quiet, built like a tank, and the detailed wiring diagrams were invaluable for building my custom wiring harnesses.

    WTB: 980x or 990x

    You're not the only one who was confused, model numbers are a little too similar if you ask me.

    WTB: 980x or 990x

    W3670, W3680, and W3690 are LGA1366 parts... 3820, 3930K and 3960X are desktop LGA2011 parts. So I guess you don't have a 3680 or 3690 then?

    WTB: 980x or 990x

    Must be willing to ship to Canada, as that's where I live, and I don't compute over long distances very well. Offering $400 shipped for the 980x, $475 shipped for the 990x. Shipping must be trackable and insured. Payment will be via verified paypal and will be in USD, unless you want Canadian...

    AMD Catalyst 12.6 and the AMD Catalyst 12.7 Beta

    Upgraded from 12.4 to 12.6 with 2 6970's, idle power draw seems to be around 50 watts higher than the old drivers. Will be downgrading to confirm.

    Baby coming, daddy needs a new camera!

    DSLR's are the pinnacle of the camera world because they are reconfigurable for any number of imaginable activities through interchangeable lenses. This is the same reason why they are so expensive. My 7D is a minor part of the investment compared to the running total of lenses I have. My...

    Raid 6 + 2 failed drives + read error on one drive = :(

    I've seen a bad batch of drives drop 27 of 48 disks in a san before, so yes, multidrive failures CAN happen.

    Just set up a WHS, should I start over?

    The only reason to replace the OS drive after you've done your migration is if it dies. Really. There is no need for a 1tb landing zone. If you will only ever have 4 drives in your system, then it may make some sense to get a larger drive, but if you will be adding more down the road, who cares...

    Xeon Quad x5460 3.16ghz overkill for whs?

    This is also what I've done. Remember, there is no such thing as too much power, only too little. If you have hardware kicking around unused, just use it. It's cheaper than going out and buying an atom and board, besides if you ever want to do encoding/transcoding or any other fun thing...
