    Recommend me some disk wipe software

    I'm selling off 2 old drives and I wanna wipe them first, any recommendations (freeware)? Never mind, I remembered the thread in the for sale section :doh: And it turns out my copy of Acronis can do what I need anyway..

    Kind of a long shot but does anybody know of any testing labs that do this within Canada?

    Want to Buy Venomous X BTK II

    Looking to mount my old Thermalright Ultra Extreme on my 4670K and this seems to be what I need to do that. Anybody got one kicking around, I'm not seeing any available in Canuckistan.

    21:9 Monitors

    I'm thinking of getting a LG 29EA73 29IN Ultrawide for myself as a bit of a B-Day present, and I have a few questions. 1. Is this just a gimmick thing and would I be better off just getting a regular 16:10 or 16:9 monitor? 2. I would plan on using this with one or both of my current monitors...

    BIOS recovery keeps kicking in.

    For some reason the BIOS recovery tool on my old P5Q Deluxe board keeps kicking in on cold boots and reverts back to the original BIOS. I checked the BIOS battery with my multimeter and it checks out OK. I initially thought the issue was the fact that the stupid copy of Vista I put on it was...

    Somewhere to get older Asus BIOS

    Seems my old P5Q Deluxe Mobo suddenly wanted to kick in the die hard BIOS and reverted all the way back to the original version it came with. It was running 0804 stable, but newer versions has added features for newer processors that the Q6600 didn't support and the newer bios did not have the...

    Er, crap, Help!

    Ahhhhh, I just started folding again... totally new gear since the last CC when I last fired up. I just double clicked my old icons to fire it up... I went from Kentsfield to Haswell and a 5850 to 650Ti... Should I be updating something... I think the GPU is using is using a core of my...

    OK, my brain is fried, ID the card on the right...

    I was digging though my archives and came across this pic. Obviously the card on the left is a 6600GT, but WTH is the card on the right? The original filename is oldvsnew, but I went from a 6600GT to a 6800GS, and I had a 9800pro with a AC cooler before that. Is that a stock cooled 9800Pro...

    Looking at buying a truck...

    Time for a new vehicle and I'm thinking of getting a truck. I'm thinking F150 right now and I think I pretty much know what I want, and then I got to the rear axle ratios :shok: WTH do I need? I'm going with the XL, 5.0 V8, 6ft bed, 4x4. It will be used on logging "roads" and probably to tow...

    D945GCLF, 2GB, HD2400Pro

    HDMI Sound Issue

    This seems odd. For years now I've run my HTPC into my TV using a DVI-HDMI adapter and had the sound go in separately via minjack-dual RCA (either from onboard sound or a Audigy 2 NX). My TV had one HDMI port that accepted audio to be provided in this fashion. I recently did and upgrade to my...

    Want to Buy Low End PCI-E Video Card - FOUND

    I'm looking for a cheap low end PCI-E video card to go into my 'new' HTPC build. The cheaper the better. All it has to do is playback 1080P content in a Q6600 based system. It would be nice if it had HDMI out. I was going to use a HD2400Pro I had, but it died last night. Local pickup would be...

    4670K or 3570K?

    Which one? I've budgeted $600 to get myself a new Mobo/CPU/RAM to finally upgrade my Q6600. I probably won't bother with overclocking, I can't afford to fry stuff anymore.

    Atom 230 and Win7 Pro

    Somethings Borked with the Forum...

    Basically they won't load at all using IE9 (I know /hangs head in shame) and in Chrome they load, but there's double the banner ads and triple the little Contest ad beside it.
