    it'll ask you what you want to clone, then will reboot your system for you and start back up in a DOS mode to do its thing.

    Best cooler for AMD 1100T?

    I have an 960t that I have unlocked to 6 cores (essentially the same as your cpu) and overclocked to 3.5ghz/core. I'm using a Zalman 9700cu with no issues. In fact, the warmest it gets is around 58c under load. My .02

    Trace repair on motherboard

    Pics? Need to verify if it's a surface damage, or multilayer damage. If only surface damage, Plugwash's advice is sufficient. If the screwdriver gouged through the top layer and damaged layers beneath, you might not be able to repair.

    No Boot Device Available?

    depending on the harddrive it is, go to the manufacturer's website and download whatever diagnostic tools they may have. Essentially you want to find out the 'health' of your drive. Also while it's running, it would be a good idea to make an image of your drive, and also backup any important...

    Reinstalling Windows on an SSD

    One is a cloning software (1:1 copy), the other is a backup. I'm assuming the cloning software allows you to select one drive and clone it to another, whereas the backup will ask you what files you want backed up, and where you want them saved. Good question, and I agree it's confusing...

    Quad core Phenom 9600.. need suggestions for something new.

    you can always try for a 960t chip as well. It's a native quad-core, which can be unlocked to a 6 core chip. I have one and love it.

    D-Link GO-SW-8GE Revision Bait-and-Switch

    Do you even know what 'bait and switch' means? By definition, Newegg would have to advertise said D-link switch, then when you try to buy they would tell you it's unavailable and start pressuring you into a higher priced/different product. A revision change is not bait and switch. If that...

    Uhh...Newegg...$599 to $849 for the 1TB Evo? Is this a mistake? Am I on camera?

    the reason the price went up on your drive was because of Newegg's inventory monitoring software. I've seen it happen before on other items. The more webhits a product gets, after a certain period of time the software will automatically raise the price of it. It's happened with me while...

    Overclocked AMD Phenom II X3 720BE, now temperatures soared?

    absolutely. You should at least do the 1st two. Blow that case out with an air compressor. Then take off the heatsink and remove the old thermal paste with Isopropyl Alcohol. Reapply new paste (size of a grain of rice) and reinstall heatsink. You'll probably be amazed at the change

    Overclocked AMD Phenom II X3 720BE, now temperatures soared?

    have you reapplied thermal paste?(size of a grain of rice) Have you cleaned the dust/dirt out? Have you ensured you have proper airflow (from front of case to the rear of the case)?

    Overclocked AMD Phenom II X3 720BE, now temperatures soared?

    do coretemp and speedfan show the same temps as a triple core?

    Overclocked AMD Phenom II X3 720BE, now temperatures soared?

    If you are running it as X4, your temps are not accurate, period! (They tend to be about 20 degrees too high)

    WTB: Something better than Radeon 5770

    Hi all, Looking for something better than a Radeon 5770 for my son. Looking to spend around $70 shipped. We just went the Ebay route and found a Sapphire 6790 for $58, but I've been fighting it for a couple days and have come to the conclusion it is faulty. Currently in the process of...

    This Can't be right!!

    Sorry, but the Phenom II didn't have the TLB bug the original Phenom had, so it was far from the 'dog' you claim. Please take a step away from the Intel high-horse and just leave the argument be. I would expect more tact from an Editor.

    720 trouble?

    Definitely keep the voltage OFF auto... if it lowered you an additional 5c, would that put you about 32c idle on the CPU core? If so, that's about normal. I'd leave it there and roll with that.

    720 trouble?

    I'm thinking once you reapply the paste, life will be good again. I would also not worry about disabling Cool-n-Quiet. I've always ran it and love how it throttles the CPU when I don't need the extra 'oomph'. Post back once you've reapplied the grease, I'm curious to see the results.

    RAID 0 2 ssds?

    I'm not necessarily in that 'mindset'. The mindset I have is doubling the chance of losing data because you are now relying on two drives instead of one. Ideally a RAID 0/1, or RAID 5 or RAID 6, but then you're talking some serious cash!

    FX6100 AMD OverDrive Question

    I would say it's the most you would want to do with an OEM system and stock cooling.

    FX-6100 Users: Need Input

    I was able to OC to 4.0ghz on stock voltage/stock heatsink. Temps were around 50c full load. I would imagine 4.5 would be doable with the right cooler.

    Upgrade X2 5600+ to what other AM2 cpu? Maybe AM2

    I'm calling YOU a noob son. Making this statement alone doesn't give you much validation. We know the Athlon II doesn't have l3 cache, but that may cost what, 3 to 5% performance of a Phenom II? Besides, being an ex Brisbane owner myself, I know the Athlon II will be a pretty fair upgrade...

    Upgrade X2 5600+ to what other AM2 cpu? Maybe AM2

    Can't say I totally agree with this trolling noob... :rolleyes: I've built several systems with the Athlon II... a couple of X4's, a few X2's... regardless, they overclock like beasts and are quite snappy once you get to the 3.5ghz realm. I would also suggest an X4 like others have...
