    Low Latency Wireless Router

    Hi, I have a need for a low latency wireless router. On my current router I'm getting 44ms response times between pings. I need it lower, much lower, something around <1ms or the equivalent of a hard wired connection. Do you know of any wireless routers capable of such times?

    FPS Readings

    Howdy, What are you using for FPS readings these days? I was trying to use MSI afterburner to collect frames per second, but seems that with the most recent version (v4.40 - i think) that the frame rates are showing as zero. Installing riva statics tuner to capture the frame rates shows no sign...

    Purple Pixel Pusher

    When IV Inferno V2 died it was a sad day. The computer was 4 years old at the time and was growing long in the tooth. The graphics cards which were originally bought for their Litecoin processing power were not performing well in games anymore. I'm typically the person who, if I can't play the...

    Maximus VI Gene - USB BIOS Flash, How long does it take

    There should be no issue re-flashing the bios if it got screwed up that is the whole point of this feature... but if it still isn't working there is a 3 year warranty on the MOBO, just fill out an RMA here: RMA Submittal Form (USA or Canada Customers ONLY)

    Maximus VI Gene - USB BIOS Flash, How long does it take

    Make sure the computer is powered off when you do it, just not at the power supply. Make sure you are using the correct USB port for flashing, there is only one of them. Hold down the connect button in a way that you can see when it starts flashing, the instant it does release the button. Your...

    Maximus VI Gene - USB BIOS Flash, How long does it take

    Nevermind, found this little tidbit: If the light flashes for five seconds and turns stable, USB BIOS Flashback is not operating properly. This may be caused by improper installation of the portable storage device, an error in the file name, or incompatibility in file formats. If this is the...

    Maximus VI Gene - USB BIOS Flash, How long does it take

    Just wondering how long the BIOS flash takes. Started it about 30 min ago and the light on the MOBO is still on and the ROG Connect light hasn't turned off yet, the manual says it will turn off when complete. Just never expected it to take longer then 5-10 min.

    HTC VR/Steam VR Usablity

    I notice that one of the features of the Steam VR is that you will be able to walk around a room with the VR system, unlike the Oculus Rift where you are intended to stay seated. My question is if anyone knows if Steam VR will be able to be used while sitting? I think the Steam VR will be...

    Need to make a 4 monitor 4k display. Radeon Eyefinity?

    Keep in mind that you will need an active display port connector instead of a passive. Using a passive connector means you can only hook up a maximum of 2 monitors. An active display port connector allows more then 3 monitors.

    Do I have a real reason to overclock?

    Your temps are really cool, so it sounds like you got a bunch of headroom to go with the overclock so long as the overclock passes a Prime 95 or Intel Burn test. As always watch your temperatures when running either of the two programs, especially Intel Burn Test. In my overclocking...

    1000W PSU Recommendation?

    I have always gone with Corsair, I have owned 3 corsair PSU's and never had a defective part. I run an older model hx 1000 in my gaming system, although now I would recommend a modular professional series. In my opinion a modular PSU is always the way to go, especially if your case has a...

    Newbie question

    I would suggest a push configuration through the radiator this is a better way to cool then a pull setup, however it looks a little odd to have the radiator mounted on top of the fans. Intake on the bottom and Exhaust out the top as heat rises, no point fighting the natural flow. Put the 140...

    No lan

    Try going into Device Manager in Windows (assuming your using windows) and checking to see if the port shows up there. Also check you are not using a crossover CAT5 cable... You can tell by lining up both ends of the cable and looking at the wires in them. They should be the same colour at...

    getting into bitcoining?

    If you are wanting to do some mining of some sort with graphics cards, I recommend getting into Litecoin, much more effecient then mining bitcoin these days. You can always trade your litecoins to bitcoin if you want to, I have two 6970's and would make less then a single bitcoin per month...

    gaming performance and overclocking

    Where to get a Windows 8 .iso?

    digital river at one point had windows 7 ISOs. Other ideas include Microsoft Tech Net and MSDN subscriptions. They will cost money but you get a ton of microsoft software. Better then buying it one by one... seems like overkill to get 5 downloads of windows 8 but if you split the cost with a...

    Bitcoin Discussion Thread Part 2

    There is an algorithm for that: (bitcoins earned per day * current value of Bitcoin) &#8211; (cost of electricity per kilowatt hour * (watts of electricity consumed/1000)). Comes out negative, your losing money, positive your making money.

    They give you the badge holder when you get in, its the first time you meet a person face to face... you have to prove that you belong there... usually by business card. That said I got my badge holder without so much as a second thought from the guy handing them out.

    Bitcoin mining

    I'm currently using a 6970 and it runs at 315 Mhash/sec. I get about 1 bit coin per week. Electricity costs are really low where I live 8 cents a Kilowatt hour, and the graphics card consumes 150 - 250 watts an hour over and above idle (can't remember the exact figure) I'm one of few people who...
