  1. The temps are always within an acceptable range. The computer has worked well for over 2 years, no changes in temperatures now from any point in the past.
  2. So this computer I build has been shutting off without warning. Then I have to wait about half a minute before I can turn it on again. It seems to happen more often when I run intensive programs such as games. Its most likely not a software issue because it shut off when I was in the bios and I've reinstalled the operating system. I've tried running single RAM DIMMS I thought it might have been the motherboard so I changed the motherboard. I've tried different graphics cards, but I doubt that could be the problem. Right now I'm thinking the problem is with the PSU
  3. My keyboard uses usb ports from the motherboard so it wouldn't help. I was just thinking this might help how some times the cord gets caught on a rough edge where the it bends around the table.
  4. The way the question asks, are optical drives needed? I can certainly get by without an optical drive, however I still prefer to have one. I like to buy my games boxed. I keep all my boxes. Its nice especially if they are pretty. Its nice to install with the cd rather than downloading the entire game, though I do have a lot of steam games. I keep a case full of different OSs .
  5. Hey guise, I was wondering if anyone plugs their usb mouse into a keyboard usb port. Its just an idea that I had. If so, tell me what it feels like. use descriptive adjectives please. Also, anyone god a mod to stick a keycap remover on your keyboard. A sorta trapdoor system would be cool, but I doubt thats possible.
  6. RMA'ed online with coolermaster no problem
  7. I have a cm storm sentinel that I got for free at a very cool newegg shell shocker with my storm sniper case. Its a pretty cool mouse, however it started having sensor problems a few months in which is a common problem. TMA process was very smooth and I got a new? mouse back. Still would have to say mionix naos is the absolute best mouse on the market purely because of ergonomics.
  8. I've had my Deathadder 1800 for a long time now, and its a great mouse that has served me well, but it had problems with the left button double clicking and mouse button 5 flickering (partially my fault), so I decided its time to get a new mouse. After a little bit of research, I really like the Mionix Naos, but I don't know whether the 5000 is worth the extra 20~ dollars. I really like the the shape, as it has space for the ring finger and pinky, which was pretty much my only disappointment with the Deathadder's ergonomics. One of my biggest gripes is that I like to occasionally pick up my mouse and put it down elsewhere. I would like a short liftoff distance, something I have heard to be a problem in the 5000's laser sensor. I also like cool LEDS. Which one should I get? the 3200 or the 5000? or something different?
  9. Hmm, I didn't not remember making that topic before. Sorry
  10. So leik mah case has a esata port in front. My mobo has esata ports in the back. So I'm leik cool story bro and I just pluged the case esata into one of the sata portson mah mobo. Does it work leik that? MOBOs a GIGABYTE p55ud4p
  11. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128409 For the case esata port, can I just stick it into one of the sata ports on the mobo? kthxbai
  12. AFAIK this is a limitation on all p55/1156 boards because there are only 16 PCI-e lanes controller onboard the CPU
  13. Hey guise, I've been keeping my computer under my desk for a while now, and I'm just wondering whether or not I should move it on top of my desk. So I was reading system builder marathon when I saw that apparantly, under the desk is where computers pick up the most dust and hair. I have carpet flooring and I do tend to shed long strands of hair a lot. Plus this would also expose my computer to more air and allow me to admire it more often. But I am a little heisitant to move my computer on the top. My desk isn't the most stable , it sorta shakes if you push it. Having the extra weight could make it worse. Also I am afraid it might fall.
  14. hmm, I have the intel turbobooster monitor, and it shows a big red cross saying my turboboosting is disabled. Actually, it might be because I updated my BIOS
  15. So I have the i5 and the G.Skill RAM. My mobo, Gigabyte p55ud4p, had lax timings on my RAM, so I tightened it, but now my turboboositing doesn't work. :< Can someone help me?
  16. Hey guys, I have the Gigabyte p55ud4p and my usb devices are still powered on after the computer is shut down. This makes and eerie light when I am trying to sleep. I can't seem to find the option to turn it off. Help pl0x?
  17. I think people are misunderstanding me. Everything I have, I have physically already. I bought that RAM because it was on sale cheap on newegg. Also, that psu is recertified :/ Also, I have almost no idea what do get for a cooler. The arctic cooling one is lik the only viable one avaliable. I want to get a dark knight, but the mounting brackets are sold out.
