Re: Advice & Suggestions on first build under $3k budget

Re: Loss of my sidefan :(

I never heard of a 190 mm fan, a 200mm fan yes. WHat chassis are you using? if you plan on replacing that fan with another 200mm, I suggest getting a NZXT 1300 RPM fan, it has a 166 CFM rating.

Re: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard Review

thats it, it boosts the amount of PCI-E lanes of a CPU. The Ivy bridge CPU is limited to only 16 lanes. In order to gain any more then that it requires a chip that boosts the amount of PCI-E lanes, in this case it is a Lucid PLX 8747. The 2011 based CPU's do not require any type of PCI-E chip that b...

Re: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard Review

Thank you sir, I was researching that chip when you posted. Wanted to make sure what chip they were using, and only a few websites mention the use of it on that board.

Re: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard Review

it uses a PCI-E booster chip, I dont like booster chips. so lets do some math 340 for 3770K Cpu 450 for motherboard = 790. 300 for the 3820 370 for the p9x79 Deluxe = 670 and all of my 40+ PCI-E lanes are native to the CPU. Native will always out perform booster chips.

Re: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard Review

It comes down to what are you wanting to do, with your computer? My computer is expanding into more then a typical gaming rig, so the upgrade to the P9X79 Deluxe made sense for me. I been running the X58 since they were an engineering sample; my first 1366/X58 based computer was a Core i7 920 was a ...

Re: Intel Core i5-3450 detected as Dual Core

Reinstall windows 7, and see what happens there. If one OS picks up all 4 cores and not another normally means that one of the OS' is toasted (corrupted), or the install disk of windows 7 is corrupted. Kind of hard to nail it down, This has happened a few times to me, typically it was a bad installa...

Re: Intel Core i5-3450 detected as Dual Core

make sure all the cores are enabled in the bios, that might be a reason why it is not picking them up. Steps to take, check the UEFI BIOS and verify that it is reading all four cores, if it is not, then make sure that all cores are enabled in the BIOS. if they are enabled and BIOS picks them all up,...
