    Thermal pad or no?

    I bought a 2TB m2 MP400 drive to upgrade my laptop. I believe the stock drive uses a thermal pad. The instructions for my new MP400 made no mention of thermal pads.... so I'm ok just bolting the drive in?

    Want to Buy WTB: Older GPU's for folding

    I am building my first rig to be a SPACE HEATER which also happens to perform medical research such a F@H. I aim to run them 24/7. I should clarify it will be a heater this fall but by spring I will mount a radiator outside the house and pump the coolant there in the summer - like central A/C -...

    Folding WHILE mining??

    Just tried Mining WHILE Folding. Mining output dropped about 16% but F@H seems to be maintaining most of its output also - still measuring. Anyone familiar or experienced with Folding while Mining? I'm rather stunned at the combined output so far banana BACKGROUND. Bought a Laptop off a...

    BEST Monitor Possible?

    The time has come for me to resume my neurofeedback training. In a nut shell it uses a computer to view and track various frequencies and amplitudes of brain wave activity. The changes come about through repetition (which becomes force of habit). So yes I am retuning my own brain. :ph34r...

    290x needs a sweater to stay warm

    So... Yeah. It seems my pair of 290X's are pretty chilly lately. I'm folding so they are working away @ 100% load (give or take). I am concerned as I do not want them to fall ill and catch a cold. Ambient air temp is about 17 - 18 and my GPU's are @ 36 and 41 atm. Celsius of course...

    13000 WU's ???

    So it's almost noon and I checked on my PC to see how FAH is doing. Ambient air temp is 7.5c... GPU's @ 32 and 34c... Things are ok no need for the secondary heater (to avoid condensation). Lets open the FAH Controller... #13,000 WU's... Hmmm... They're HUGE... 8% done and 7.5HRs to...

    First H20 setup - ASAP - LITEcoins

    OK so a while ago I was looking at BITcoins but I missed the boat. By the time I was interested GPU mining was no longer profitable (without free electricity). I JUST started looking at LITEcoins about a week ago. Long story short I decided to bite the INFLATED price on a pair of 290X's...

    IVY-E likes FAST ram???

    I heard that IVY-E CPUs will be fond of faster ram - IVY-E will make better use of FAST ram compared to Haswell or SB-E. Any thoughts?

    Did I fry my CPU or my MOBO?

    SCENARIO OK.... So I was overclocking my 'new' system. CPU temp was high but not 'too high'. Memory was running cool, the VRM cooler seemed decent. I forget if I hit 4.5GHz or 4.8GHz. If I tried for higher board would revert to a lower setting no matter what I did (upon saving and...

    Move program to 2nd monitor?

    Sounds simple right? IT should be! I was doing some work on a computer with a surveillance system installed on it. I had to replace the 'DVR CARD' from the surveillance system when reinstalling windows (as they driver disks were gone). I bought a CHEAP unit from China off Ebay - $35 for...

    Software based raid???

    OK here is the scenario... I have used 2 raid arrays over the past 4 or 5 years. A RAID 0 - 2 x WD Raptor 74GB. I fell in love. Last year I bought 5 used WD Raptor 160's using 4 in RAID 0 and have a spare. After the fact I was thinking I should have bought an SSD but I will make use...

    I had installed 'Windows 7 64Bit Ultimate' on my PC after FINALLY buying parts and rebuilding. The legitimacy of the Windows copy I used is questionable. A new Copy will be ordered tonight. I never activated or updated Windows either time I installed it. I live in the boonies, an hour...

    Please Suggest a CHEAP Mobo & CPU

    My father has an old socket 775 Dell computer. It's rather old tech. I would like to buy a new CPU and Mobo for him. I am looking for something cheap that offers good bang for your buck, and should serve him well for a few years or more. I don't really have 'EXTRA' money to spend on...

    ******WHAT HAPPENED****** I recently picked up 4 used 160GB Raptors to run in Raid 0+1 (to replace my 2 - 74GB Raid 0). I removed the HDD's and the computer sat for two days. It turns out my PSU had died while waiting. I was about to order a replacement when my brother suggested I...

    Recommendations for a wireless router?

    I am working at a small hotel which needs to purchase a wireless router for guests. The motel is about 100 feet long, and our #1 priority (for the router) is to have a GREAT signal throughout the building. Right now the wired router is basically at one end of the building. Yes I could place...

    Scroll lock flashing, beeping

    OK so I went out today leaving my computer on to run Orthos cpu testing (passed 8 hours blended). I had MANY tabs open in firefox and many in chrome also. I came home and Orthos had stopped running after 45 minutes with an error. Max Temp was 56 (I have hit WAY higher while passing other...

    Upgrading a 200mm fan

    I have an Antec 900 case with the 200mm fan on the top. Does anyone make a 200mm fan which can move TONNES of air and still be VERY quiet when I turn the speed down? OR will I have to make some duct work and mount multiple smaller fans which suit my needs? I tried a couple online retailers...
