    Replacing my Dell U2412m lcd

    My ips U2412m is giving me headaches while gaming. I never experienced this with my old hp w2207 so I'm assuming it's the monitor that's causing this. Any suggestions for a replacement? I'd prefer to stay with 24" and more specifically 1920x1200. Budget is $300 or so, preferably ips with good...

    Cryptocoin Mining - General Discussion

    Looking to get into crypto mining with my old HTPC build. How does my hardware look? Thought I'd get started with Litecoin first... Could really use some tips...

    Guild Wars 2

    Umm guys, so I'm thinking of getting into this game, but to be blunt I've never played a MMO before. RPGs, yes, but never online. Is it too late to get into the game? Or is does a new player always start from the beginning? :D

    Thanks for your help!

    Can my mobo/cpu handle two RAID 1 volumes?

    Well I got the extra drives. I had to move the ODD (blu-ray) from the Intel SATA controller to the Asmedia controller. That should be fine, right?

    Can my mobo/cpu handle two RAID 1 volumes?

    Well after three hours of use and about 300gb data transfer, one of the WD Reds warned up to 45C, and the drive directly below it went to 30. I'm of the understanding that anything below 50C is OK.

    Setting up MPC-HC

    Wow yes XBMC is great! So much more user-friendly than MPC-HC. I'm still keeping MPC around though since it makes a great standalone video player.

    Can my mobo/cpu handle two RAID 1 volumes?

    Hi guys, My new build currently already has a RAID 1 volume (2 x WD Red 4TB). I'm thinking of adding a second volume consisting of two WD Red 3TBs. Is this possible? (i.e. it will not slow down my processing speed, load times, etc.) Also, with the drive cage already having a SSD, a 2TB WD...

    Cannot install Win 7 when SATA set to RAID

    Well I think I've narrowed down the problem to the SATA cables. Specifically the two used to connect the external hotswap bay and one of the internal drives. I did a MD5/SHA-1 checksum test on a given file transferred via both of those cables on the old rig to its storage drive, and both times...

    Just got my SSD and I have a question....or 2

    Hi guys, A question of my own. I have a 480GB Crucial M500 SSD on my new build and I want to partition it. The reason is so that I can reformat my build in the future without having to reinstall my games, which I'd like to put on a separate partition on the SSD. How much space should I...

    Cannot install Win 7 when SATA set to RAID

    Looks like it's mostly fine as far as I can tell. Tried a few random rar packs and they all unzipped successfully. Fingers crossed. New rig does still try to check the disk though and I keep skipping it.

    Cannot install Win 7 when SATA set to RAID

    Could be. Now I'm regretting letting check disk run during reboot. It "fixed" several indexes and whatnot... Hope it didn't end up corrupting many files.

    Cannot install Win 7 when SATA set to RAID

    Well it's all good now. Here's another headscratcher though. My old build has a hotswap dock on the case that allows me to plug in a SATA HDD/SSD. Today I tried to plug in my storage drive to access the applications I sotred on there, but every few files I pulled out of it through the hot...

    Cannot install Win 7 when SATA set to RAID

    I downloaded Intel Rapid Storage Technology Software from Asus. Pressed F6 during Windows 7 Install and loaded the driver and everything worked out. Could it be because my copy of Windows 7 is really, REALLY old???

    Hmm, any decent guide/tutorial to setting up XBMC?
