  1. Is there a way to disable gpu acceleration for the 3DMark Launcher? Every time I try and run a benchmark, my 7950 only clocks up to 850. As soon as I close the launcher, I'm able to hit 1000mhz again. It's sorta making a comparison impossible.

    Mineral Oil Submerged PC Build Log Part 2

    I'm so stoked to see this thing full and running. I do have one question for when that time comes. Is there a chance that the fan in the PSU could "sling" drops of oil out of the top? Edit: Fan would probably run too slow, so nvm.

    Antec Silent Gaming PC Bundle Giveaway

    Thanks Antec and LTT! I'd have to say that the EDG750's my favorite. I've been using a secondhand Antec 750w for years now and it's been rock-solid. I also tend to be a sucker for Red/Black.

    USB network adapter under $30

    If you really want wireless on the cheap, go Alfa. You can also consider things like powerline adapters (essentially a network bridge via home AC circuit) so you can have a "wired" connection without breaking down walls. They are a bit more than 30 bucks, but you'd probably be better off.

    STRONG WiFi adapter...looking for advice.

    This. I have an AWUS036NHV with the Alfa directional antenna on it, and can pick up my full bandwidth with pings about ~+1 to 5 ms over what I get on wired from a distance of about 45 feet, through two walls. Long ranges in a USB package, you can't go wrong with Alfa.
  7. I got Four of these (a Black one, and a Gray one) from a friend of mine who did installs for AT&T. They've kept my WRT54g running for around Six hours a piece before.
  8. Do both of your devices operate on 12v and have 2.1mm barrel plugs? if so, you could go with something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/BELKIN-12V-BATTERY-BACK-UP-REV-B-BU3DC001-RESIDENTIAL-GATEWAY-/131292344248?pt=US_Uninterruptible_Power_Supplies&hash=item1e91a22fb8 and just get a Y-connector for the end. It's what I use. IIRC that unit will provide four amps at 12v, and is equipped with a 7.2Ah SLA.

    Network layout showoff

    Basically, I have a pact with my neighbor. He provides me with 10/1 that would otherwise go unused, save for a few iPhones, and I provide him with tech support when he needs it. It's not the greatest thing, but it gets the job done. The laptop is there solely to bridge the Alfa to wan on my WNR834, which is DMZ'd from neighbor's router and does all my routing, as well as provides me with my own private WiFI network. The WRT54G is the "visitor" AP that I can just switch off. NAS is an old netbook with a 1TB HDD running FreeNAS. Serves all my media, which is all I use it for.
  10. One day, a buddy of mine and I were talking about Eyefinity, and the best hardware to run it. Mid-way through the discussion, I decide to hop on YouTube and look at different Eyefinity setups. I came across the Eyefinity 6 5870 unboxing. The "knife" used in that video caught me so off guard. I was curious as to what else there was on the channel. I was hooked. Obligatory congratulations for the 1 Million subs. B)

    Wi-fi Woes

    I had an issue like this once where the router was having issues assigning an IP to my sister's computer. Went static and the issue went away. If none of the above helps, you could try and find an old router that's flashable to something like DD-WRT, and use that as a client. Your computer'll think you're on ethernet.
