Re: Windows 7 (64-Bit) unable to connect to wireless network

Could you please run a ping of your router? That may help in identifying the source of the problem.

Re: Will This Work? - Drive Image Resotaration

Well, If you can make the Raid array appear as a single drive, then this should not be a problem. The worst that could happen is the installation fails and you have to go back to using the drives separately. But if you have the image backed up on a external hard drive then you wont loose your data a...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

Its been a few day so far, and no problems whatsoever! @bubba, That was one of my concerns, that the top plug would leak, and for a second when I first filled the system, it did. I had to tighten the plug so much that I can now barely get it off. Well, I think I now have the gaming rig I have always...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

I apologize for not being more clear about the temperatures earlier. The idle temps are around 31 C as of now, and the moderate load temps are around 44 C. Ambient temps are usually around 76 F.

Hope this helps

Re: Project: Water Cooling

Okay, its time for pics :) . I had to reposition the pump again, so in the images below, the pump will be in two different positions. Also, some will be darker than others. My battery almost died, so the flash did not go off in some of the images. http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/7968/imag0002ou.t...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

I have spent the last hour reconfiguring everything, and discovered my main problem that I am amazed I did not see: the pump was not positioned properly, so the coolant was being pumped against gravity. Now, the coolant is flowing as it should, and the CPU is running at about 45 C. Again, thank you ...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

First of all, I would like to sincerely give really big thanks to Major_A and bubba for helping me with this. I probably would be even still farther behind than I am now if it wasn't for your help. Second, I have cheched all inlets and outlets, bled all air out of the system for three hours, and sti...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

Okay, I have a big problem... The CPU is registering an 85 C temperature. The OS is shutting down before it is even booting. What is going on here? I have checked flow, and it seems fine... A problem with the CPU? Im running Core i7 920. This is kinda scary... any help is appreciated.

Re: Project: Water Cooling

no wonder i was able to find the 220 so cheap, and in such good condition! The actual apogee drive 350 is a piece of crap, but I never had problems with leaks. Did you ever find out why they were occuring? Oh, BTW, the actual installation took longer than expected. So pictures will be up tomorrow mo...

Re: Project: Water Cooling

the hoses are not used, only the radiator, really. I will be rinsing it with distilled water. As for the hoses, I will be using 3/8 inch hoses and fittings. I will most likely end up buying uv-sensitive hoses and a blacklight to make the system look awesome.

Re: Need input for system I'm building

Might I suggest a Cooler Master HAF 932 Case? Other than that, I think your rig is very good. Good that you are using Corsair whenever you can, too. They make good stuff.

Re: 2300$ build

Are you going to be doing any sort of CPU-intensive work? For a gaming computer, a brand-new hexacore sounds excessive. You might want to look into a quadcore. (I'm an Intel-Nvidia system fanboy, and proud of it :) , but I'll try to be objective). You might want to look into the Phenol II X4 line an...

Re: Cooler Master HAF 932

wow, thanks! you saved me a lot of trouble there. As for how I have destroyed them, I triped on the wires, and twisted the plastic and silicon in the ports so as they are now completely unusable.

Is it possible to get another one of these boards? I would really like to be able to use my case comeplete with the front panel. Any...

Okay, I am using a mirror and a borrowed projector. This works perfectly.
