    Core i3 7350K Overclockable Dual Core Review

    This may be just my own computer, but is anyone else experiencing a website block from Malwarebytes when trying to open the geni.us link?

    Lets talk about noise

    I have my PC sitting on top of a wooden desk and the hard drive resonating through it does get annoying. The only reason it's on my desk is to look through the window, so I might put it on the floor. Thing is, it's a secondary drive so when it shuts off, it's pretty average noise levels. I think it's unnerving to not be able to hear anything working in your computer, and I couldn't get used to it.

    I personally have always liked the Blade 14 because I believe more in thicker laptops providing more power. Would definitely use it for some baller LAN parties.

    Because the first thing that came to mind was cat pee and the smell would immediately give it away

    I have no clue but it doesn't function anymore. He smelled it and it didn't smell blown up like when mine exploded, but he also doesn't smell evidence of a cat...

    Unlock my old password protected hard drive

    Ah, I remember having this problem with a Windows 10 SSD. Do you mean that when you attempt to access it externally, it tells you that you don't have access to this folder? In this case, check out this forum: a) Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select Properties. b) Click on ‘Security’ tab and under ‘Group or user names’ click on ‘Edit’. c) Click on ‘Add’ and type ‘everyone’. d) Click on ‘Check names’ and then click ‘OK’. e) Select ‘everyone’ and under ‘Allow’ select ‘Full control’ and click on ‘Apply’ and Click ‘Ok’.

  11. I have an open desk. It's basically a slab of wood on two legs. Probably one of the worst types of desks for cable management and for someone with OCD. Cables were a huge issue for me; case in point, any time I'd put my foot on the wall from my chair, the HDMI cable would flip out and my screen would blank out. Not to mention the microphone has like a 30 foot cable since it's designed for studios. So I spent about 45 minutes, a shoebox and the box that my R9 380 came in and when I was done I had one power cable for my entire computer setup (tower, 2 monitors, speakers, peripherals) and one cord for my lamp under my desk. All the excess cord length is stuffed in a box behind the tower and shielded by view from my monitor. Point is, even if it's a ghetto cable management solution, as long as you don't have to look at it, it works fine (which is probably why you'd cable manage in the first place, right?). What cheap and/or easy solutions do you guys have?

    What to do with a old server

    Do what I'm doing and what the other guys are saying: Make a NAS and/or a good game server PC if you have servers for games.

    Video Card Not Working

    Oh hello again. You helped me yesterday with my game server choices and mentioned something about a low-power card that you could sell to me. Why not test it using one of those? Maybe you could rule out card failure/mobo failure.
