Re: useing addtion video card for physics processor

The requirements for PhysX processor are at least 32 CUDA cores and 256MB memory. I hope you got enough power supply and nice temperatures inside your case though. I tried running a GTX 260 as a dedicated PhysX processor once and it seems to run in 3D mode even in desktop so the temperatures are hig...

You just download the self executing exe file from Dell's website of your particular system/motherboard and double click it from the desktop, it will do the rest a...

I guess this replaces the CM 590 and they won't make a CM 590 II :D

Re: AMD Phenom II X6 Processors in May 2010

Yeah I've been listening to an interview with Damon Munzy from AMD a few hours ago and it really piqued my curiousity. The price is really making this a very tempting product. Also would love to see how that new Turbo-Core of theirs performs when the reviews come out.

Re: Power Supply Reliability Question

Why did you buy a new power supply? Doesn't Corsair have like 5 year warranty?

Definitely have your home electrical checked. Also surge protectors work wonders (for your main and the plug-in ones).

There is nothing attached to the motherboard's 4-pin right now where I took out the old fan. EDIT: I fl...

Win7 won't enter sleep mode automatically

Scenario: My DX58SO's IOH fan is really loud and has a crazy bright LED so I decided to replace it with a quieter fan from an old 3.5-5.25 mount. Now I wanted to monitor my IOH temperatures when I run stress tests to see what temps I'm reaching so I installed Intel Control Desktop Centre as it is th...
