  1. you really should not have a problem. and that heatsink is so nice, i have on too can you please take a picture of the insides so that we can see exactly what is going on?
  2. send the drive in for RMA if it is still under warranty
  3. ya just wait, your computer is very fast as it is. the amount of money you put into it compared to the performance gain just does not add up.
  4. what do you mean by restart exactly? does it BSOD and restart? if so don't have it restart on BSOD. also, do take it out of the cupboard, it has no right to be in there. open up the side panel and even blow a house fan at it for a day to see if problems repeat.
  5. you should worry more about load temps than idle temps. what are your temps after playing a game for an hour?
  6. 44C is the correct temperature, that is a very normal temp for quad cores. what programs have you tried? try both realtemp and coretemp.
  7. how p***ed would you guys be if i wrote a program that played this game? haha. i am now tempted to when i get bored.
  8. agree. I hate the new look. This theme is totally unclear und confusing. same here
  9. a Superbowl commercial had a spin off of Cheap Trick's "Dream Police", so I am currently listening to Cheap Trick's Greatest Hits
  10. i currently have an R61 with a T8300 and 4GB ram and am also considering getting a new T510 with i5. i have never used a laptop faster than mine even considering that it is now over 2 years old.. the reason for my upgrade would be the use of lightroom, the T8300 just can't handle it whatsoever. i would say to go with an i5/i7 and install much ram as possible.
  11. that is exactly the issue. the only fan showing to be spinning is the cpu fan which i am assuming he has attached the cpu fan wire to the motherboard. if all other fans are attached to the psu then there is no way that you can pick up info on them. caber, if you want to be able to adjust them with software then hook them up to the motherboard, assuming the fans allow you to do so.
  12. haha, nothing like a Buffalo winter. I live in Rochester so I know what it feels like, I love it too
  13. ya i went to a catholic school for high school, luckily by then teachers have given up on cursive since they know kids can't to it well, it just makes the teacher's job harder. so they would have to find other ways to fail us.
  14. i just remembered something funny and sad, haha. so when i was taking the SAT a few years ago, they told us we had to write something in cursive and sign it, basically one of those i won't cheat things. multiple students in the room said they don't know cursive.. one of the ladies in charge said just write normally and connect your letters.
  15. for video encoding you NEED disk space, 30 gig will do you no good at all. if you already have other storage then please say so. aside from that, i would say to get a better video card, assuming you can afford it.
  16. don't make me shiver. as a web developer, i absolutely hate when someone gives me a word doc and wants me to convert to html. dreamweaver does an ok job at cleaning it up but it just never comes anywhere close to correct.
  17. your cpu is running at a nice speed though. try this, minimize your game, and look at the task manager. have someone transfer a file to their computer. if their transfer speeds are low, see what your cpu usage is like.
  18. well my only guess is kind of obvious, while gaming you are reading from the hdd for the game, so when someone wants to read a disk image, the max transfer speed will be lower because your hdd needs to read the game and the disk image at the same time instead of just the disk image. the only solution i can see is having a separate hdd for storage of this data that someone else can transfer from while you game on the raid array. now while gaming your cpu may also be running very high, this can also cause slow file transfer speeds.
  19. also keep in mind that your upload speeds will matter a great deal. you will not be able to stream video from a standard house connection which is like 40kbps upload. music you can. take a look at this: http://xbmc.org/wiki/index.php?title=Types...Network_Sources
  20. i have an account and played with it. it's neat but i don't see myself really using it.
  21. microelectronic engineering? computer engineering?
  22. why hamachi? there are different ways to setup networks. me, personally, i have a file server running ubuntu. i set up remote access to the server and i can stream my music from a web interface (jinzora 3) for videos, i really do not like streaming video as it can get choppy and there are so many formats to mess around with, so i just use winscp to transfer the movie file over to watch. if you only are going to be using an xbox tho, then xbmc should work just fine.. just open up the port on your router and firewall for xbmc then connect to it from an xbox. i have actually installed xmbc on ubuntu and my roomate's 360 picks up my media. the only thing is that the xbox had one of the worst libraries ever, it just plops all of the music into one folder without organizing it.
