    Virtualized HTPC?

    My parents are avid users of a media centre computer to watch netflix and stream other videos. But they have a tendency to click 'ok' and 'install' for every phishing/trojan/adware popup, so needless to say the computer is chockful of viruses and malware within a couple weeks. I am not always...

    Server OSes

    What do you guys use for general purpose servers? (ie. dev servers, running test code, web server/db) I'm running freebsd 7.2 from 4 years ago, and it literally falls apart the second it got deprecated, it's slowly limping along for the past year or so because I haven't gotten around to...

    Thermal pads oozing grease

    So i was monitoring my temps on the videocard yesterday and found that the VRM temps were pretty high. So I dismantled it only to find that it was drenched in some sort of clear grease. The grease seems to come from the grey thermal pads that are usually included waterblocks and such. Does...

    vertically mounted 360mm rad - does not bleed

    I recently installed a 360mm radiator that is vertically mounted with the ports on the bottom. For the past few days I find that the water does not go through the whole radiator, just the bottom 1/3 of it. It just can't bleed the air on the upper 2/3 of the rad. Can rads not be vertically...

    Any point in boostin bclk on SB-E other than memory OC

    Is there any performance gain for raising the bclk and bclk only? Ie. 45x100 vs 36x125 with memory kept at ddr3-1866 regardless of bclk.

    Overclocking SB-E

    Now that all my parts are here, I started tweaking my new CPU and mobo combo. Parts are: 3930K P9X79 Deluxe 32gb of ddr3-1600 mixed brand memory (running 2x8gb at the moment for tweaking) So far my max reasonable overclock is 46x100 at 1.3v fixed with LLC maxed. Temps are low 70's after...

    Should I use HeatKiller backplate for LGA2011

    I am setting up my loop for my LGA2011 build, and I see that there is already a pretty thick blackplate. Since I am using HeatKiller 3.0, it comes with a backplate as well, should I use it? It seems like it'd be a pretty tight fit since the LOTES backplate is pretty thick and I just stack the...

    x79 cpus and 1.65v ram

    I've been researching and looking up on 1.65v ram x79 platform. So far, it's only made me more confused. People are claiming that the IMC will burn out at 1.65v, some say it will run fine, and kingston hyperX beast runs at 1.65v at XMP. So what is true and what is false??

    Would eBay QDCs work for watercooling?

    Would a QDCs on eBay like these: Hydraulic Quick Disconnect Set ISO 7241 B 1 2" | eBay work for 1/2" vinyl tubing? or would I need to buy barb-to-thread adapters as well?

    broken DDC

    Hey guys, I have an issue with a broken DDC. When you plug it in, you can hear a small electric feedback noise (quiet whirr/squeal) for about a second and then it stops. It does that every time I plug it it in. Does anyone have any kind of idea what is going on with my pump?

    I give up, silent pc builds are impossible.

    I've done everything I can, Fractal R3 case, Laing D5 at setting 1, PSU fan replaced with ap-14 gentle typhoon , rad fans consisting of 1000-1200rpm fractal silent series, and 2 yate loons, fan controllers. And it's still ridiculously noisy. My ghetto secondary pc with a single MCR-320-QP-K is...

    upgrading laptop CPU

    I am contemplating on upgrading from a sandy bridge core i3 to a SB core i7 quad. From my understanding, my battery life will drop be cause of the TDP increase. But when using my i3, my CPU load is constantly between 15-20 percent minimum, more if I open a website with flash banner ads. If I...

    Is the closed loop LCS market oversaturated?

    I've been looking at the new Zalman LCS, and not suprisingly they made zero effort to differentiate themselves from their manufacturer's other clients (Antec Kuhler). With all the cooling companies making closed loop solutions, there are only a couple that actually manufactures and designs them...

    Need a new SSD

    Well, my OCZ SSD decides to crap out again. This time corrupting my work, and set me back quite a bit. I'm sick of putting up with this crap. Can anyone refer me to a good reliable SSD? 120gb is enough, nothing too fancy.

    Scythe slim fans for radiators

    How well do scythe slim fans perform for low fpi radiators? I'm planning on doing a silent build and I and wonder how well they perform. I know they lack static pressure, but since I am using them as pull-only, would it still be a problem?
