Thanks Ericeod. I am so tempered to dip in my piggy bank and get this 24Gb of memory, even more so with your report. I have read a few reports that say the P6X58D-premium is problematic with 24gb installed and max speed is 1333 with 24Gb installed. I will stick with my 12gb tripple channel idea. The 6gb Corsair memory (3x2) in my sig rig works every time. About this particular board. Some say it (well all) x58 boards are overly complicated and not as reliable as they could...
Hello.I am looking at a good deal on 24Gb of Super Talent DDR3 1600Mhz memory(WB160T12G9). These sticks are not listed in the ASUS manual as accepted memory. I know at times memory that is not listed will still work. I want to use this memory in a 3X4Gb configuration (12Gb per board total). I know this board can be a bit finicky with the larger memory configurations, even with its "mem OK" ability. I ask if anyone has had personal experience using the Super Talent memory...
I have an urge to do some retro gaming on my PC (Red Storm Rising). Since I have long sine lost my copy I must go to Ebay. I am only finding the game on 5 1/4 floppys. I believe this means adding a drive and a controller. My question is about the controller. Is it possible for me to find a floppy drive with a controller together with the drive or am I going to have to use up a PCI slot for the controller? Perhaps I just ask how others are dealing with their older games...
Hello Dopamin, Thanks. Yes I can simply use up another dongle or wireless card and solve the issue that way. I take it "sharing" is looked at as a kind of "make do" connection and not really a prefered way to operate?. +Rep
OK another "how to share" question. Basically everything works but here is the problem. My desktop is connected wirelessly. It has had a couple of different wireless dongles installed over time. Now it has a Belkin dongle installed (named wireless connection 10). I go into sharing under "change adapter settings" and the only choice given to share is "wireless network adapter 8" and I am not using wireless adapter 8, I want to share wireless adapter 10 but that choice is...
Putting together a new build. I am using a full size Cooler Master case that I bought in 2014 and never used, still looks brand new. Cooler Master has a nice rack for hdd's but it looks like it will be a bit tight for the hdd cable that comes off the power supply (the large flat one). I ask who has the most flexible modular power supply cables? I am going to stick with 650W-750W. Of course nice cables are not my major selection concern (good no noise DC power and a...
Thanks dlew. I will go look that up. +rep
I just had to pick up this laptop off of ebay (all of 26.00 delivered). It had a half display issue (vertical lines) I found the pressure point to restore correct function so now all is well (2.8Ghz dual core,4gb RAM, can take 8,100+GB SSD and Win 10). My question. There is a port on the back just below the battery, the cover is missing. I looked on the net for an answer,none found quickly (manual download for 10.00). I ask if anyone knows what this port is for. I post a...
As the title states my Sony Vaio VGN-N130G got tangled in some blankets and hit the floor, now no display. I see no damage at all. I do notice that the 3 lights indicating numb lock,caps lock, scroll lock are all constantly illuminated, it appears that there is no function at all from keyboard inputs. The device sounds like it is going through the boot process, no error code beeps. Charging indicator light works as intended. LCD is not cracked or visibly damaged. RAM...
The situation is. We are told by the promoters of discrete DAC's that everybody is and will suffer from audio distortion caused by influences from other sections of the motherboard. It is not "you may", or you could" it is "you will". Consequently some motherboard manufactures have gone to lengths including a lit "wall" and a separate trace separating the audio circuitry from non audio related circuitry. The point is,so much effort to fix a problem only a select few can...
