Re: A Supermicro completely Shanghai'd!!

Not familiar with the Quadro vs GeForce thing (all my builds have had GeForce, so it never came up), but I can speak for how the SLI system works in general.

My understanding is that is partially...

I remember!

Hence why I only run 8GB RAM... the speed helps more than the size.

I've had great luck with the socket 940's I've built... as long as they have SM mobos! All my others were Tyans and were either quirky or blew up. Still run twin 285's in my server...

Lucky... my two 2006 vintage ones were a nightmare. Especially the one with primitive hybrid graphics. Even the ricoh webcam was a no-go.

Re: That Apevia Case from the Free Scores thread...Another Time-wasting Retro Build!

The "flipped" USB connection is a usb1.1 thing it seems (built so the plug would "work" either direction). The common 9 pin layout used on newer things seems to be limited to USB 2.0 boards. Why the...

Silver floppy drives are a PITA to source. Took me a long time to find one for my AFT case (it's an Alps Electric).

Re: Building a gaming rig for my dad...

Quickly learning how USB support for windows 7 on these things is non-existent. Since it's a 300 series chipset, supposedly Crimson drivers will work. trying that... if not, I dunno.
