Re: USB extension cable

This is what I ended up ordering, since it is for a wireless USB adapter stick I thought it would act as a base better than just having the stick plugged in at the end of a cable.

Re: USB extension cable

That's what I figured, I guess it doesn't matter which end is which as long as there are one of each. (I left this one open for a drive-by lol)

Thanks!

USB extension cable

Duh, stupid question but I'm dysexlic ;) and my head hurts so help me out please...I want to get a USB 3.0 extension cable because a new USB wireless adapter I got is so big it covers 2 slots, and sticks out so much it looks to be easily breakable.

Re: Corsair SP2500 2.1 232W Audio Speaker Kit Review

It may be time to dissect it, I've torn stuff down before that ran any kind of amp power and found all it needed was a little fuse inside that was never referred to in any documentation as user replaceable. They want you to buy a replacement, I'm too cheap if I can get another year or two I'll alway...

Re: AMD Radeon RX 480 Video Card Review - Polaris Arrives

As I type this Microcenter has one XFX 8GB, one MSI 8GB, and 1 XFX 4GB so unless you live close you may not have a shot of these, maybe after restocking.

Re: Thermaltake Core X5 Cube Chassis Review

That is sweet! I like the black version, the green didn't really suit my fancy but the case itself is a winner, I like the total customization opportunities. I'm guessing you would want to get as quiet fans as possible since it is basically an open-air setup except for the window side.

Advice on HP OEM boards

In a nutshell...OK, a coconut shell lol I recently got a used HP PC, after much research on why it wouldn't accept a CPU that is on the supported list (I got hold of an i5-2500 to test it with), I believe that it has a socket/pins problem. I wanted to move my son into it as an upgrade from an even o...

Update

Well, H-E-Double Hockey Sticks! Although I had found some indications that others got the 2500K to work on the IPISB-CU Carmel2 motherboard (AKA Pegatron 2AC2), it isn't working on mine. I get the "unsupported CPU" bios message, then it shuts down. I can't find an updated bios for it so this was a w...

Re: i5-2500 or i5-2500s?

After looking at performance tests, I decided to get the i5-2500K anyway. That way if I ever luck across a good used z77 board I can play with OC'ing it on that, but otherwise should give me good performance in the H61 chipset HP PC as a general rig. I think I got pretty lucky and was actually brows...

Re: i5-2500 or i5-2500s?

Yeah, not looking to OC or I would get a mobo that does so, this is just going to be a general purpose that I share with my wife. Since it is a complete PC with Win7 COA I thought it would be a good candidate for that. It currently has an i3-2100 that is actually pretty snappy with the SSD I put in,...

i5-2500 or i5-2500s?

I have an HP PC that shows compatibility with skt 1155 cpus up to and including i5-2500/i5-2500s/i5-2500t/i7-2600/i7-2600s. I see that the S series cpus have lower clock at idle but go up to 3.7ghz for the i5-2500s to 3.8ghz for the i7-2600s under load? Would it be worth it to go for an s series for...
