  1. If your not sure of the brand on a 350w PSU, it's probably not a very good one. Like I had a 500w Dynex PSU, that turned out to only give 350w of power to my components. Not saying this is what's happening to you.


    Are there specifications on the side of the PSU?

  2. My dad recently got a Rebel T5, after his D50 stopped taking pictures. 


    I'm finally here to try and rejuvenate it with your help, if possible. (btw i've never worked with DLSRs, so bear with me)


    Here's what happened when I picked it up:


    1. Turned it on. (SD card was in and battery was half-charged)

    2. Held down the picture-taking button halfway, and it focused. On the top display, it said ISO: r09 when i held it halfway, and ISO: 112 when no pressure was on it.

    3. Took a picture, but could not get it to come up on the display (stayed black after trying to go into the picture menu. After the picture was taken, note that it also did not show up on the back display.)

    4. Did not let me take any more pictures. This includes holding the button halfway and focusing. None of this worked, in addition ot the flash not popping up.

    5. Took out SD card, plugged it into my Mac, and saw that the one picture I took was on there. I put the card back into the camera and I am now letting the battery charge to full. 


    NOTE: It will not let me take pictures in Manual either, and will not let me into the D50 menu. The screen remains black.


    What am I dealing with here? I can answer questions.

    Thanks :)


  3. I've used 3 different AMD boards and none of them required access to the back.

    However, I think all of my Intel boards required a mounting plate on the back.



    EDIT: Under "Compatibility", Intel LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155 and 775 & AMD AM2, AM2+, AM3, FM1//2/2+ (backplate required)

  4. I had to port-forward to use plugins.


    If you just want a vanilla server, then you can just host noramlly but if you want some cool plugins then you have to login to your router and open port 25565.

  5. Recently I ordered a Karambit off of Amazon, just for fun. It arrived yesterday and it was a rainy day, so naturally I was bored. I found some nail polish, and VOILÀ:



    (via Snapchat)


    I took a pic and added some lighting effects too:



    Has anyone else here done something like this?


    Edit: The other side is Fire/Ice. I can post a pic if anyone is interested.

  6. Cant you try your current GPU in that slot and see if it works?

    If that works there should be fine in crossfire too.


    I did do that, although I didn't stress test it. It seemed to work fine on just browsing web and watching youtube so I hope it should be almost as good as the x16 slot when I get the second card.

  8. Yes, the second half is just blank. They do usually have 1 pin in the end, which is not used for anything officially, perhaps just for identification for the motherboard, so it can tell when you have a full length card plugged in.


    I tried unbending that pin, and I think it worked but even if it didn't, will a second 280x still function normally in crossfire with that bent pin?
