    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Where are you seeing this for that price? I see it as $160 on their website? Was it a sale or something going on then? Actually I kinda like the look of this external drive and may incorporate it into my desk build, just not sure if I have the room. I only designed it to have a normal HDD...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Hmm this is interesting info! Knowing these are higher end drives and removable, this is probably the way I would go. Obviously you void the warranty, but I'd be more concerned with data loss than a drive replacement at that point, but it's a good thing to try and keep the cages in good shape...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Ok I have a desk case and definitely want an internal HDD, so the EMAZ drives are out unfortunately. I'm narrowed it down to either a WD 6TB Black or Blue drive: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare?CompareItemList=234-000G-000W5%2C1Z4-0002-00MY8 What makes the WD Black drives so...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    I have a WD 2TB from probably 4 years ago that has been serving me well, it's just almost filled up. I don't need the WD purple and I don't think I need to pay the premium for the Red either. I'll see what deal I can find on a Blue or Black WD. How do you feel the $150 Seagate I linked to...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    So I'm about to burst out of my current 2TB HDD for all of my media storage. I am looking to upgrade to a 8TB HDD to store all of my various media on. Which one do you guys suggest? I Found this Seagate for $150: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16822183793 But then this 8TB Seagate that looks...

    M.2 SSDs - do they have FDE yet?

    Looking at Samsungs website there isn't much difference between the 970 Pro & Evo these days. It's almost worth just saving the money and going with the Evo. I currently have two Pro 550s (I think) I see that AES 256 is now a feature on the 970's, but are they supported and available for use...

    M.2 SSDs - do they have FDE yet?

    So I want to move from SSDs for my OS to M.2 SSDs but only if they have FDE. Do they feature this yet? Also my M.2 slot is under my video card on my Asrock Extreme 4 - do these have issues with overheating? The video card currently has an aircooler on it, but I am getting ready to add a water...

    I want to host all of my video files securely so my editor can easily access them - how?

    I want to host all of my video files securely so my editor can easily access them - how?

    So I have a 2tb HDD that I store a lot of video content on that my video editors can easily, but securely access. Instead of uploading to various things like google drive, I think hosting them on my computer for the editors to access will be easier for everyone. But what is the best & most...

    Dual video cards are almost identical, but not quite - is it a problem?

    Ok so I have 2 video cards, I thought they were both Asus Nvidia G-Force 9800GT cards and they look almost identical except for a some resistors etc. They have the exact same model #, different serial #'s though obviously. Is this going to be a compatability problem when running them together...

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    Ok it seems to have cleaned up nicely. Do I need to let this dry over night before trying to install it in the computer?

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    Ok I used a carbon fiber knife I have to scrap off the big thick areas and was able to get it completely cleaned off. The chip itself doesn't have big thick parts to it, actually seems like a really thin layer, I just want to make sure acetone will be ok to clean the chip off first before...

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    The acetone seems to be working fine for the thinner areas, but the perimeter has a thick layer that squished out and seems to be problematic. I need to scrap it off first, but not sure what to use because I don't want to gouge the copper heat sink. Do you guys think it's ok/safe to use the...

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    Is there anything else besides that, that will work? Is that common to be sold locally in a store or do I have to order online? (it isn't a big deal but if I can buy it locally and finish this up tomorrow, that would be preferred.)

    Rubbing alcohol isn't working to remove this thermal compound, any other suggestions on what else to use to remove this? Here's a pic:

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    Whatever is on the video card heatsink doesn't seem to want to come off with rubbing alcohol, any suggestions as to what else to use? Seems pretty stuck, even let the iso sit on it for a few minutes.

    Seems I have Arctic Silver 5 - High Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound It's what I used to put the heat sink back on my Intel processor So I DON'T want to use this kind then? What should I look for specifically that would be sold locally? Not sure if I have radio shacks around any...

    Took heatsink off video card, ok to use Arctic Silver to put it back on?

    I have an Asus nvidia card that I had to take a part to clean. This I also removed the heat sink and there is the grey thermal compound on there, seems almost hard like dried putty, but I think I should be able to clean it off with some rubbing alcohol? Is it ok to use the Arctic Silver...

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    I realize this can be an issue, but I took the proper steps the last time and removed everything completely & cleanly. Thank you though. What do you guys think about 13.12 vs 14.4 ? I know I tried 13.9, I could have sworn I also tried 14.4 - I think I'd be happy just to get all 3 monitors...

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    It's an Asus mobo, a few years old at this point. I'm using 2 dvi & 1 display port. I've had all 3 working fine, but the drivers werent stable. So I know it will work, just need the most stable driver. Instead of trying different new ones, which I've already had issues with, I'd rather...

    Do I need to do anything with new microsd card?

    I just received my new Samsung Evo 64g microsd card. Do I need to do anything to it first, format it etc or can I just put it right into my phone? Does anyone put additional passwords or encryption on their microsd cards?

    Samsung Evo or Pro microSD for Padfone X?

    Ok, this will be dedicated to the Padfone X so no point in paying for something it can't utilize. You're positive it can't write at the Pro speeds? Where is this info even listed on cell phone specs?

    Samsung Evo or Pro microSD for Padfone X?

    I want a 64gb Samsung MicroSD & they have 2 different versions: Evo - writes up to 48MB/s Pro - writes up to 90MB/s I have a Padfone X Would I benefit by going with the Pro for faster writing speeds? Can the Padfone X even utilize that speed? If not I will go with the Evo. Thanks.

    Do you have a link to the download of 13.12?

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    Should I still do this atikmdag.sys file replacement AFTER doing Nexiullus re-install of 13-12? So I shouldn't try it on the 13-9 that I have installed now? Completely remove this version too & for sure go with 13-12?
  33. J

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    I have installed 13-9 - you're saying the one you use is 3-12, NOT 12-3? Wouldn't that make 3-12 a very old driver? Am I going to be losing out on anything with this older driver? I almost wish I never bought this card... Yes any link to a stable driver would be great. Any idea...

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    That didn't work. I should also note my display that does work doesn't look good, looks like terrible graphics. So is something not installed properly? I uninstalled and reinstalled everything properly. I was told to download this driver: 13-9_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql and it...

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    Ok I will try that now. I have tried multiple times now, everytime I try installing Catalyst it seems to do so properly but I can't find the program itself to open up and adjust settings? Would this be where I find all 3 monitors?

    Driver gave me BSOD, I installed new ones now down to 1 monitor from 3

    I have 3 monitors & recently upgraded my video card. I was having issues with the drivers & was getting the BSOD. I posted a thread in the BSOD section on sevenforums.com & they suggested I re-install the drivers, which I did, using the version - 13-9_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql - but now I'm...

    What video card to replace my Asus Nvidia 9800 GT?

    Ahh I'm all set up with both monitors through DVI now, thanks guys. I just have to order a DP cable from monoprice so I can get the third one up.

    What video card to replace my Asus Nvidia 9800 GT?

    Would the AMD uninstaller be on the disc that came with the video card? I just found it in the bottom of the box and didn't think to try to install it, once I plugged the card in it seemed to install everything for me. I have CC Cleaner - is this the Drive Cleaner you mentioned that I should...
