I did a site search on "VPN" and it yielded no results (I was shocked) so... first time for everything.
I bought myself a new smart TV for Christmas and am just learning the ropes as I started to set it up yesterday.
I wanted to setup Amazon streaming and I could find it available...
This is a strange one to me.
When I'm playing LOTRO I can play fine but if I alt tab or exit the game I find the connection has dropped. I could've kept playing so the connection is actually up but it isn't... :p
Now I say I could've kept playing but after some time in game it will...
This might be a bit much though.

My new Vesta EVO i1 arrived yesterday so that means it's time for me to play with some overclocking.
I'm actually trying to underclock from the NCIX shipped speed of 4.4ghz for the HWC SuperPi contest that requires a 4.0ghz speed for it's maximum.
So underclocking from the shipped...
Reading the review below there is the following line and I don't know what it means:
"The Xonar DGX can't encode digital bitstreams on the fly, limiting multi-channel digital output to pre-encoded tracks"
"The Xonar DGX might not be able to encode digital bitstreams in real-time, but it...
My first post of this nature and I hope it's OK and if not please delete.
On February 21st I placed an order for a full PC built by NCIX and paid for that day.
The order included 2 of these Galaxy cards:
Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 GC 1006MHZ 2GB 3004MHZ GDDR5 Dual Fan SLI 2xDVI HDMI DP PCI-E DX11...
Hehe... in Sci-Fi movies the bad guys are often referred to as "The Company".
So much of the PC industry is becoming dominatored by Corsair.
In my new rig I will now have:
Corsair Dominatored Platinum RAM
Corsair AX860i PSU
Corsair MMO mouse
Corsair K90 keyboard
Corsair H100i CPU cooler...
I'm looking at upgrading from a GTX 570 to an MSI GTX 670 Power Edition OC and from the review Sky did this card should perform close to a standard 680.
For gaming at 1920x1200 do you think a 680 would be worth the extra $100 or so? The 670 is on sale for $380 right now.
For a long time I would upgrade every 1 1/2 - 2 years but I've had my i7 920 for 4 years in January and still find no fault with it.
I can OC it to 3.6ghz without hitting the voltages and I've never had any stability issues at all in those four years.
The newest game I've played is Skyrim...
Been thinking about the white version... it does look sexy.
Is the case just a gimmick or is it functional.
Does it look as good IRL as it does in pics?
Lots of room for a big motherboard and space to work?
Any general comments you have on the case would be appreciated. :biggrin:
I came across this old sci-fi show tonight.

As the title says I want to format my SSD and do a fresh install of Win 7.
I have an OCZ Vertex 2 120 extended. I have platter drives for storage and the SSD is mainly OS.
I've done this dozens of times with platter drives but I'm not sure about the process with SSD if it is any different...
When I first got my SSD I ran the OCZ utility to initialize it and followed some instructions AKG posted here. Well I replaced my mobo and it has always been my SOP to do a full format of the OS drive and reinstall everything from scratch.
I did a full format from my Win7 disk and not...

I've formatted my HDD many times and did numerous hardware upgrades with XP over about 7 years but I had a legit corporate copy on my personal PC so I never had to do any activation.
I started using a legit retail copy Win 7 about a year ago and I replaced my motherboard last week so this is...
I already have a GTX570 and OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD and HDD's for storage and I'm using a Corsair HX650 PSU.
Primary use will be for gaming.
