  1. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I will try that shortly
  2. Hi all, I haven't visited the forum in some time now, but I come back in need of some assistance. Recently, my computer has been blue screening more frequently and I believe one of my hard drives is to blame. I first thought it could perhaps be a thermal issue, but after I set custom profiles for my fans, that was deemed to not be the issue. Then, I thought perhaps the issue was for certain applications or software, but I have yet to find a correlation. Now earlier today, there was a windows popup (I'm using Windows 7 still) saying "Windows detected a hard disk problem. Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk". At this point, I am at a loss for what to do. My system has two hard drives: a Samsung 840 Evo 250GB SSD which I use as a boot drive and other important applications and there is a Western Digital 3TB mass storage drive for everything else. The details say the issue is with the WD 3TB drive, but every time I try to back up the drive to my external portable hard drive, the computer crashes at some point during the back up and there's nothing I can do but start over, only for it to crash again. Any help is much appreciated Thanks
  3. Thanks all.. I'll take everything you have said into consideration so far when making final choice!
  4. I've had closed back all my life, but I suppose I am willing to try open if I can find a good pair
  5. Hi All, Recently, my Steelseries Sibera V2's broke after a long period of use. Now I am in the market for a new headset with a decent mic for under (or close to) $200. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks
  6. Yeah, that's what got me thinking about getting a new audio setup haha
  7. So I come to the forums today to ask if the microphone configuration I have in mind is good, or if I should change out some things to be more price efficient, better audio, etc. Basically, my old headset microphone configuration isn't very good, but I don't want to buy a new headset so I am thinking of getting an actual mic and a boom arm to keep it near me. The parts I had in mind were as follows: Sennheiser E835 Microphone http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-Dynamic-Cardioid-Vocal-Microphone/dp/B00006I5R7 Rode PSA1 Boom Arm http://www.amazon.com/RODE-Swivel-Mount-Studio-Microphone/dp/B001D7UYBO On Stage Foam Ball-Type Mic Windscreen http://www.amazon.com/Stage-Foam-Ball-Type-Windscreen-Black/dp/B0002GXF8Q ..And finally, I'm thinking to add a Mixer to my setup in the way of the Alesis MultiMix 4 http://www.amazon.com/Alesis-MultiMix-USB-Four-Channel-Mixer/dp/B001T9O5VG As you can tell, I don't have boat loads of money to be throwing around on this, so I tried to keep it within a reasonable price. I will be using this for Twitch streams and YouTube videos. If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts on this setup, please let me know. Thanks for the help, Matt
  8. Hello all, Lately, I have been intrigued with the Linux distro, Ubuntu. I have wanted to try Linux for a while, and I now, I really want to. I have been reading up on how to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but most of the tutorials are on systems with one hard drive. This got me wondering, how would I install Ubuntu on a system with two hard drives. I would like my SSD to be only Windows and some important applications. I would like to partition my 2TB hard drive to be partly Linux, partly Windows (Mostly Windows, though, as it will remain my main operating system). Is there a way to make these two operating systems play nice on separate hard drives relatively easy? Thanks, TheSportkid24
  9. Hello all, I am looking at doing a triple monitor setup for my next build and am having trouble finding a good way of mounting them. I would like one that I could mount to my desk from the back, but all suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  10. Actually, one more question. I just installed it fine and would like to be able to reuse the USB I used for the install. How would I reformat the usb back to its original state?
  11. Just did that, all looks well now. Thanks a ton for the help! Will let you know if anything else goes wrong
  12. Is it safe to unplug the USB now? I'm not sure if Win 7 is done installing...
  13. Hello all, I recently completed the build phase of my mini-itx and have a bit of an issue with the install of Windows 7. I set the boot priority to boot from the USB I have Windows 7 on and saved the changes. The system boots into the installing windows screen fine, but after the initial restart, it restarts back into the install windows 7 screen. I am pretty sure this is an issue with something in the BIOS, help?
  14. Would putting the stock cooler on mess up the thermal conductivity once the H80i is put on?
