Does anyone know if there is a way to boot by keyboard? I typically shutdown my computer at night, and it would be nice to just smash the keyboard when I wake up to boot the computer. My old Asus board did this, I just had to have the keyboard plugged into the right USB port.

Any ideas?

Quick question: Are you sure you are not talking about Wake Up via the keyboard?

If there is a way to boot the computer by hitting a key on the keyboard, how would that be easier than just using the computer's on-off button?

I don't think it would be a waste. If you have it laying around, and you play physx games, then use it. I have a few physx games, Metro 2033, Batman AA, Dark Void, Mafia II, and I bought a physx card to use with them. I didn't spend much, and don't regret it at all. It helps make the gameplay a lot smoother.

As some of you know, I have made a life project out of mounting the Corsair H50 Liquid Cooler, bending CPU pins and RMA'ing motherboards in the process. No I am not manually adroit, but I am not a total clutz either.

Current problem: Despite my applying the thermal paste in a nice little dob in the middle of the CPU and mounting the H50 in what I thought was the most beautiful of exemplary ways, I get: Corsair Formula CPU Idiot LED only w/no boot to bios.

Unmounting the H50 for I dunno the 8th time maybe, I see that there was probably too much thermal paste. It's friggin everywhere (so much for internet how to videos on how to apply thermal paste, something I have been doing before some OCN members were born)

Questions:

1) I have the Tuniq TR-1 "Thermal Material Remover" (Tuniq now according to reviews beats out the venerable Arctic Silver thermal compound so I now use Tuniq exclusively). Since the pins are now nicely permeated by this thermal compound, what is the best way to clean it out without bending the pins?

2) I have read where guys (foolhardier than I) actually ran their CPU's through the washing machine or soaked them in soapy water to clean them. Is it safe then to soak my AMD 6-Core in the Tuniq TR-1 Thermal Paste Remover?

3) In applying thermal paste, I think from now on I am going to opt for "less is more" in that I will apply a very, very small dab and then rub it around with a rubber gloved finger just to create a film. Is that better?

4) Bonus Question: Do you think I should forget the Corsair H50 and go with straight air? I have a Tuniq Tower in my #2 computer - easy mount and quiet. Any other suggestions? I AM desperate.
(Need to OC my 3.2 GHz 6-core to 4.0 GHz)

Disclaimer: Now do you see why I adopted the Daffy Duck avatar. It is very much me. One reason for optimism, though. You guys always answer my idiotic questions and have yet to laugh at me. For that the Duck is grateful.

No I'm not talking about wake up, I'm not putting my computer to sleep nor was I with the old one.

My case has a door on it (Antec Sonata II), so it's easier to just hit the keyboard then open the door and push the power button. Specially when you're crawling out of bed int he morning!

You might like to try this:

Put some Tuniq TR-1 Thermal Paste Remover in a flat dish the height of the length of the pins.
Soak the CPU with pins down for about one minutes.
Use a new soft tooth brush and wet it with some TR-1 Thermal Paste Remover and drag it very gently and slowly along the channels of the pins.
Dry the CPU with canned air.

Time and passion is the key!

Hello!

Can I get included into this distinguished club? Just got my CH IV Formula today. Pix as follows (apologize if too big... am a noob using Image Shack).

Apologize for the pix qualities but my daughter took off with friends and took the camara. Had to resort to the cell phone camera.

Board mounted in my HAF 922. Thermaltake FRIO contrasts nicely with mobo color scheme in my opinion. Ok... MINUS the fans and the fan holders... but hey! I like contrasts! At least they match with that yellow S/N sticker on the mobo.



All lighted up on the very first try!



Will be re-doing the cable management in the near future after I install the water cooler I ordered last week (which hasn't arrived yet!).

Thanks Tweeky. I had no choice but to Up your Rep for that one! I'm sure other members will find that advice most helpful.

While I'm in your good graces , what do you think of the following two questions?

I'm so sick and tired of that %@$% Corsair H50, I'm tempted to sell it. The H50 looks so good in theory but I'm not really sure if it beats a good "air" that much.

Understood. My question was not to be at all sarcastic, but was just curious as to what you had in mind.

An observation, though. You might actually be lazier than I am, and that is one helluva accomplishment!
