    Yeah, I seem to remember having to set something in the BIOS otherwise it would panic every time I booted up.

    So I'll leave it as is then. I wanted Fan Xpert 3 but it's not listed as compatible...

    Corsair H100i and the speed of CPU_FAN

    When I put this water cooler in a few years ago I left the "fan" speed set as the Standard profile in Asus' Fan Xpert+. The fan header this cooler is connected to is CPU_FAN. I was informed at the...

    ASUS Fan Xpert

    I have an Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard. I've had it a while and it's pretty awesome; a bit long in the tooth now maybe but it still handles most things I throw at it admirably. For controlling the...

    Yup! Both Lexacom and Wiggly Amps wanted to install the necessary files on the main server but the IM&T provider for East Leicestershire wouldn't allow them to. Idiots.

    I've got a wireless Xbox 360 receiver. Was thinking of getting rid though and buying a wired Xbox One controller instead. I don't play that many games to warrant a controller on PC. Depends if it's...

    What, and that gets around Securom? What sorcery is this?!

    Yeah anyway looks like it was the disc causing all the strife. I guess I must have left some other problem discs in the drive on those...

    No lightning strikes or other electrical events that I'm aware of. I'll give that discharge a try. I honestly did not know you could do that.

  8. Sometimes my PC likes to scare the bejesus out of me

    This doesn't happen every often (thank science), in fact it's pretty rare and just now is the only time it has happened in about 6 months or so but my PC likes to randomly scare me to death when I...

    I guess I'll have to live with it. I don't mind the screen going off, as long as it doesn't do that when I'm actually doing something. I'll have to watch iPlayer or something and see if it still does...

    I've looked into other software that might be overriding the power saving features but there's nothing. I haven't added...

    Why is my monitor going to sleep?

    My Samsung S27B971D monitor keeps going into standby after about 20 minutes of inactivity (i.e no keyboard or mouse movements) despite all settings (Windows 7 and the monitor's OSD) set to never...
  12. Creating a website - no such thing as a free lunch

    I've looked at so called "free" website hosting before. My attempts to sign up with a few always end up with me discovering it's not at all free, not in the slightest. So perhaps there aren't any...

    Ha! That'd be about right.

    Well I already tried waiting two hours (or near enough) and it didn't budge. Guess I'll try for longer then.

    Oh I check every update before I commit. Don't want...

    Cannot download any Windows Updates

    It's been a while since I last ran Windows Updates for Windows 7. Indeed I think the reason why is because it hasn't been reminding me in the notification bar (I have it set to let me know when there...

    I got a private tweet from Kirrus, he removed a url that might have been causing the slowness - it was, perfectly fine now. So perhaps it was the Xcom 2 video thing?

    Tch. I don't check my post for a few days and look what happens.

    I went with a 4Gb GTX 970 in the end; the EVGA Super Clocked with the ACX cooler - same type as the two 780s in my other PC. Not...

    That's what SLI is for. Card can't cope, the other one takes some of the load off.

    Maybe I'll start with a 2Gb 960 and see how that goes. I could always add another later. Better to have two 2Gb...

    I hate shopping for GPUs. If this was for my main rig I'd probably spend a few months deliberating.

    Sorry, I assumed the 960 was an expensive card! I see now it isn't - should have done my research. Okay I'll get one of those to replace the 580.

    I don't want to spend as much as a 960. It is a spare PC after all and doesn't get used a great deal. So what can I replace the 580 that's already in it that costs less than 200 but has better...

    I've got a GTX 690 knocking around somewhere. I had that in my current main rig prior to the two 780's. I don't know why I didn't put the 690 in my spare PC instead of the 580. Must have been a...
