    Will One Pump Suffice?

    Hi, I'm looking to run a Swiftech XT CPU block, EK Northbridge block, a universal GPU block (AquaXtreme MP-1), and three Swiftech triple rads. Do you think a single Swiftech MCP655 will suffice? It's the one with a speed adjuster, if that makes any difference.

    Help: Running 400ft Ethernet Cable

    Hey HWC, I'm looking to run an ethernet cable that is close to 400 feet. Wiki says that the maximum length should be 100 meters, so I am thinking that I will need a CAT5 repeater or extender. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing and can recommend a good brand to get? All the...

    Are Female Riders/Drivers Really Less Inclined to Damage the Vehicle?

    I've been searching for vehicles lately and I've seen a few "Female ridden" or "Lady driven" which, more often than not, entails a higher asking price than an equivalent vehicle of equal worth without the extra 'feature'. So my question is that do females really have a lower statistical...

    What are those pins and connectors on the mobo called?

    What are those pins called and what is the thing that connects to it called? Is it just called pins and a header? I'm trying to find the parts for a project, but I can't seem to search the correct term to find them. I've been searching on Digikey.ca with no luck. I just need a couple of...

    No Display After Restart

    Hi, I recently replaced my mobo with an Asus Rampage II Extreme x58 board and all my components work fine. However, ONLY when I restart my computer, the screen goes black (as usual) but it doesn't come back -- ever. I even hear the Windows startup sound play, but I still see nothing. Since I...

    Switching RAID Array to Another Mobo?

    Hi, I just bought an Asus Rampage II Extreme x58 mobo and was wondering if I could migrate my RAID array to that mobo. Currently, I have 3x 64GB SSD's for booting. The board I have now is the Asus P6T x58, so both are the same manufacturer, and I assume they both use the same chipset, so...

    Opinions on best looking 1155 Mobo for cheap

    Since I bought my x58 setup a while back, I haven't been keeping up with the new Sandybridge stuff. So what I'm looking to build now will feature the Corsair Obsidian 650D (Courtesy of HWC and the Chimp Challenge!) and an i7 2600k. I want everything to look nice when inside the case, but I'm...

    *Postponed?* CTOAN LAN 8 - Feb 18-19 2011 - Maple Ridge, BC

    I just signed up for this not too long ago, but I find it weird why they haven't posted it here. Their last C-Toan 8 (see previous topic) apparently didn't happen, so this is a make-up LAN (I think). I'm not part of their 'advertising team,' but I was just curious if anyone here is interested...

    All In Wonder HD Card Help

    Hi, I just bought an All In Wonder (AIW) HD card, hoping to use the TV tuner on it. I already have a video card, so I wanted only the TV tuner functionality, but so far, Windows Media Center (WMC) won't detect the card. I've Google'd the problem and tried all kinds of driver versions to no...

    Binding Logitech Feature to Keyboard Shortcut?

    Hi, in the SetPoint Mouse settings, there is a nice feature called Application Switcher that I can assign to one of my mouse buttons. I really love this feature, but I don't have enough buttons on my mouse to include it. Is there any way I can bind this feature to a keyboard shortcut instead...

    Noob i7 980x Bigadv Folding Questions

    Hi, I've been following a guide to set up bigadv folding and have a couple questions. Do I have to DL VMware player 3.0 or should I get the latest one (3.1.2 at this time)? I ask because sometimes patches or updates messes up what previously works and I just want to make sure this doesn't...

    Upgrade from GTX 275 to 4870x2?

    Hi, I was thinking about getting a 4870x2 to replace my GTX 275. Would this be a good upgrade? I can basically trade my card 1:1 for his card (it is used, but comes with waterblock). If possible, I might even be able to get a second one for a quadfire setup. Has driver support made any real...

    RAID SSD's TRIM/GC Questions

    I have 3x Kingston V Series 64GB SSD's in a RAID0 array. I benchmarked them when I first set it up and got around 600 mb/s read and 270 mb/s write (sequential). To see the state of my RAID array, I benchmarked again today and got ~550/166 read/write. I read before that RAID arrays do not...

    Powering Everything Off Via Power Bar Every Night

    I'm not exactly sure where to post this, but I have a question: I have all my computer stuff hooked up to one power bar and every night, after I shut down, I also turn off the switch on the power bar. This cuts out all power so the lights on the mobo as well as any connected peripherals (such...

    980x temps, voltage, stability, RAM

    Hi guys, I'm currently running a core i7 980x OC'd to 3.9GHz. Yesterday, I was rendering for the better part of the day with no stability problems, but after I stopped rendering to play some L4D2, I suddenly got a BSoD. Upon reboot, I bumped up my VCore to 1.25V. Today, I've been rendering...
