I've been playing with this board for a couple of weeks. Damn good board. I've never understood people setting the voltage super low then jacking up the CPU VID SPEC. I typically set mine to 1.35v and the SPEC to somewhere between 107-112%. Another issue to keep your eye on is "AUITO". If ...

Something to keep in mind.... the temp sensor is nowhere near the head on these things..... its back a ways, so the reported temperatures are not accurate and can be off as much as 20C. If they are saying 20C, then you need to know if thats the BIOS reported, or accurate temperature..... or if thats...

all you have to do is take the I/O shield out of your old case and transfer it over to the new case.

I've tried setting the affinity to one core, I've tried setting the resolution to 800x600... nothing works. If I uninstall the game and reinstall it, it runs fine until I reboot.....once I reboot I get an immediate crash to desktop once i start playing the single player game (I don't play online). A...

from my experience with my cel phone and my ipod nano, I'd recommend a little Brasso, or buying this stuff called "Apple Sauce". A little goes a long way, but they both work very well taking scrathes out of the screens

a new TJ will put any YJ or CJ to shame. I drove a number of them off road on 3+ to 5 rated trails in stock trim and it was impressive and smooth unlike out CJ's and YJ's that we grew up with. I also ruined a friends TJ that was in my Jeep club on a rock course. I was used to a YJ's ability to slid...

I still like the original CJs they used to be a great off-roader out of the factory. I don't know a thing about the new ones at all. If they can't haul firewood, I don't look at them much............. :shock: LOL, the orginals were so easy to maintain as well. If something went wrong you could usua...

before you RMA the drive, make sure there are no bent pins on the drive or the motherboard. I have had that happen and experienced the same issues. It can also happen if one of the pins comes loose and slides in/out of the back of the drive.

why mess with the greatest. I've had 4 jeeps a CJ, two Saharas, and a Rubicon........they ket getting better and better...... I just don't understand why they have to go in that direction....jeeps are not supposed to look like SUVs, SUVs are for yuppies to drive around the city and for dirt driveways.
