Re: Build/Buy Campater

From what I've heard that's pretty normal, although I was hoping your case would do better than that.

You could turn the video card fan speed up: http://www.evga.com/precision/

I'm going to try that tonight.

Re: Build/Buy Campater

By hour 8 That's a lot of work :X Sounds like you were just having a ram issue though. Maybe that mobo is fussy with its memory. The video card power connectors are 6pin (judging by the newegg pic), so I don't think the problem Brandon mentioned applies. Also the cables on your power supply might b...

Re: Build/Buy Campater

What is Dr Debug error 30? Is that a beep code, or does it appear on the screen? What motherboard is it? Would it matter which slots A1 A2 B1 B2 I use? Probably. It should say in the motherboard manual I think. Try just putting 1 stick in A1 ? Did you plug in the extra power connectors on the video ...

Re: Build/Buy Campater

I am also looking to build a media (ie. fanfic) box for streaming and such. Tell me about your old PC (or maybe you already did.) I just built one of these. I got a tiny motherboard in order to use less power. Mini itx? I don't have a hard drive for the OS. It boots FreeNAS off of a thumb drive. It...

Like them, Hugh gets away with what the law allows... They're still being exploited. So they're part of the 99% then? Hm.. so if you were a girl would you rather work in a dead-end minimum wage job or work in porn? Cuz if it were me I wouldn't even hesitate. Bring on the cucumbers, bitch! No fake t...

Re: Building Computer

:D hey another question (for a different pc that I'll probably use freenas on): If I pick a mini-itx motherboard , can I put it in a Micro ATX case and use an ATX powersupply on it? I picked that case/powersupply because they have four 3.5 sata bays/connectors. I was thinking about RAID 5 briefly bu...

Re: Building Computer

Yeah that's a good thought. I'll probably switch out the motherboard for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813153211 because it has PCI Express 2.0 x16 instead of 1.0. I'll probably try the system out with the onboard video card first and then if rendering all those email po...

Re: MAGFest - Jan 5 - 8

lol. It's a question for Tim. I'm sure we have 2 beds.. dunno about a pullout couch or just a couch. Merk would make 6 in a room. He could always bring a sleeping bag if nothing else.

Re: STARCRAFT

The ladder system is kinda broken. The way it works is that if you don't play for a day or more they just throw points into a "bonus pool". Then the next time you win, you get double points until your bonus pool runs out. So it's really easy to get a high ladder rating. Not only that, but a win can ...
