Q: Fan setup suggestions for the HAF 922

Hi I have a Coolermaster setup the suggestions Fan 922 for HAF HAF case and my computer specs are as follows Asrock N C-S mobo AMD Athlon II X Arctic Cooling Freezer pro GB x GB Corsair Vengeance DDR RAM PowerColor HD GB GPU Coolermaster GX w PSU Running Win Ultimate I also have x HDD s in the case soon to be x HDD s and an SSD Fan setup suggestions for the HAF 922 for the OS when I get time to install it Anyway that s the spec The case had two stock fans- front mm x mm and rear mm x mm The rear case fan wasn t very quiet however so I went ahead and purchased a Sharkoon silent eagle mm This isn t actually as silent as its name suggests but it does seem to create better airflow and it has reduced noise levels slightly What I d like help with is finding an ideal fan setup for my case which will keep it as quiet as possible but also keep it cool I use the computer for gaming using resource-hungry programs like the Adobe suite I know there s going to need to be a compromise and I m fine with that but I think I d prefer it to be more geared towards the silent side rather than performance My questions are Do I need a side or top fan If so what sizes do I need and should they blow air in to the case or suck it out Should the rear fan be sucking air into the case or blowing it out Can I replace the fan on the Arctic Cooling Freezer to a Sharkoon because the freezer fan is the noisiest of the lot What is the actual size of the front case fan I d like to replace this as this isn t very quiet either I m open to any suggestions as I am clueless when it comes to building computers I just know how to use them Thanks Tom nbsp

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Lol, lovely username Tom.

I don't think you're going to get the case as quiet as I know you'd like, but as I've said before, maybe your best option is a fan controller, so you can turn down the noise when your working and then increase the fans for when your gaming to provide additional cooling performance.

If a controller isn't an option, I'd probably pip for Noctua NF-S12B FLX Ultra Quiet 120mm fans (one in top, one in side and one in the rear -- all as exhaust) as 60CFM @ 18dB is about the best you'll get for "silent" fans. Not cheap though, but will last years and years.

Combined with the intake fan at the front of the case and the other three all running as exhaust will cause the case to run negative air pressure, which is exactly how I ran my HAF 912+ -- The downside is the case will get dusty inside faster, but it will suck out heat much faster and run the computer cooler in my experience.

A:Need some suggestions for the a wireless setup...

Just one man's opinion but I found the Belkin FSD7633 router, a Belkin wireless PCI card for the PC and a D-Link Air PCMCIA card for the laptop easy to install and set up. That gives me the 802G capability.

You'll do without the latter, of course if your laptop has integrated wireless technology. You could also leave the cable in your main PC and do without the PCI card. Check out somewhere like Newegg - your prices are less than ours in the UK but my three items as above came in at around 110 British.

Hello all,

I have been running into an issue on an existing Access database. Looking if anyone knows a solution to a multiple user database.
Been running into constant issues with database corruption. Daily have to run Compact & Repair on the backend database to get it working again.

This is after I noticed the amount of people connecting to the database at the same time increased from about 15 to 35. This is on a 100MB/s network.

I have a split database Forms, Queries, and Modules on local copy. Linked to another database on a network drive that has all the tables.
I have been running a test database using ODBC link to a MySQL PHP database. Checking if any forum experts think this would be better setup than storing to an Access file.
 

A:Looking for suggestions about Access Database setup

MySQL is more appropriate for larger numbers of users, but I do not personally have any experience with it, other than assisting others with their connections and queries.
Which version of Access are you using?
At work we had an Access 2000 database with up to 30 people on it at any one time and didn't have any problems.

Hello all.
I currently have two monitors (32 in. & 27 in.) connected to a GeForce 550 Ti graphics card: EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

This is working nicely without any issues, but I would like to get another 32 in. monitor and wanted to get any advice on a decent video card upgrade OR if my video card will handle 2 large monitors and 1 med. sized monitor. I do see that my card has two DVI ports (1 connected to the 32 in.) and one HDMI port (which is connected to the 27in.); common sense is telling me 3 ports, 3 monitors right? Just wanted to make sure.

I'm not a hard core gamer, but I do play various high level detailed games like Half Life, Call of Duty, etc.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:New network setup, dual boots, looking for suggestions

If you want wireless security, use WPA2-PSK or WPA-PSK encryption with a strong passphrase. If some equipment cannot support WPA, even with driver update, then at least use WEP 128-bit.

If you want to make your network harder to use and have a false sense of security, use MAC address filtering, turn off the Dhcp server, disable the SSID broadcast, etc.

I don't understand your use of a server and a second (wired) router. Do you mean a real server (like a company would have) or just your term for a regular computer where you keep all your files? Is the second router because you want two separate LANs?

I can think of three possible ways to share the printer, but before buying anything check the specs as not all printers will work with all devices for the first two options:
1. Get a wireless router that includes a USB print server,
2. Get an ethernet or wireless USB print server,
3. Connect it to any computer and share it over the network.

A:Suggestions for Restoring Windows 7 Image to new SSD/HDD Setup

If your Intel SSD that died was properly aligned, then windows system imaging will restore the image properly as well. A system image will restore the new SSD to the same setup, as was on your old SSD. As far as restoring an image from a larger drive to a smaller drive, I don't think you can do that with Windows imaging.

I have several Asus Eee netbooks that I'm getting set up to use at my school. I had some parent volunteers helping me get them ready to deploy, and one of the netbooks was plugged in to initially power it up, but then hard-shut-down before Windows could run through its initial setup.

Now when I boot up the netbook, and it attempts to go through the initial windows setup "Setup is starting services", and then throws an error message:
The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.I restart, and the cycle continues. This happens whether I try to boot normally or in safe mode.

I've got no CD-drive attached to it, so I'm not sure what I can do to break this error cycle. Any suggestions/tools/ideas?

Thx,
Jeff

A:Win7 Starter getting error on initial setup; locked in setup loop

Not sure how you deployed them, but if Startup Repair doesn't help when run from System Recovery Options then I would redeploy the image or run Factory Recovery from its partition after backing up the disks.

If you don't have one and they are same hardware, simply backup one's image using Win7 backup imaging or free Macrium - Image your system then boot System Recovery options to Recover Using an Image from its external storage location which you have connected.

If they are not same exact hardware or Image hangs at startup, SysPrep the original before deploying to remove all drivers, activation, SID and HID's.

Ive read the Instructions on how to setup XP to dual-boot with Vista...
However, im concerned (and someone mentioned it happened to them in the thread)
that when XP SETUP is finished with the TX part of setup and reboots PC to go into the
rest of setup (GUI XP SETUP)) it wont continue....?
is this right>? ive read elsewhere that if the partitions for XP are created in Vista that it wont boot into the rest of setup....

I could make the partition during XP setup if this will help?

thanks
 

A:Vista/XP Dual Boot - Will XP setup continue into GUI setup after reboot of 1st part.?

When I did my dual boot [using win2k / vista] I used an existing partition that was created by vista. No problem at all. It is a little more difficult than say installing win2k after xp however as long as you follow the instructions there are no problems.

As always make an image of your system before you start. This way if something does go wrong, it is a simple matter to restore the image and be back where you started from.

I'm trying to install windows xp, after formatting, it goes thru the process of copying the xp files and automatically reboots. Now after rebooting, instead of this installation to continue, it just goes back to the same setup process again i.e right from the beginning again of wanting to format and repeating the same process again. It does not continue with the installation as it normally does. Xp disk is good. no problem with it.
One thing strange I noted is when booting with the XP disk in, it automatically goes thru with the XP setup without asking 'Click any key to boot from CD-Rom'
Any ideas to solve this? Thank you all in advance

Have you tried launching it in "Safe Mode"? That would be the first thing I would try, and see if it will load past that screen. If it does, then there is probably something installed on the device that is causing the problem and you will need to see about uninstalling it.

If it doesn't move past, and still gets stuck, you may have a hardware problem.

I recently purchased a refurbished HP 6005 with windows 7 Professional. On the initial boot up I got to the windows setup screen asking for the country/language. It was at this point the power was disrupted and restarted the computer. Every time I tried to run windows the computer would restart. I also tried in safe mode which did not work. I then went into system restore mode to try that but am not able to complete because I get the restore error message 'Error 1'. Unfortunately I only have the product key and not the actual disc since i bought refurbished. Any suggestions on how to complete the setup so I can use my computer?

A:Power was disrupted during setup and now unable to setup.

According to the Troubleshooting Guide, you can restore to factory new state:

I have just finished moving my OS from a 3TB hard drive to an SSD. I now have 2 matching drives that I would like to set up as a RAID array. A couple of questions:

1. Do I need to backup the data that will be on the RAID before setting it up and then move it back once it has been setup?

2. Do I format them before I go into the RAID setup utility or does that utility do it for me?

3. Will the RAID just appear as a single drive letter on my system?

4. Evidently I have the choice between RAID0 (for performance) and RAID1 (for redundancy). I hhave an extensive back up scheme in place so is there any reason not to use RAID0?

I know that I enable the RAID in the BIOS and then there is a place in the boot sequence to get into the RAID setup.

A:RAID Setup - Alienware - A few setup questions?

What are you hoping to get out of a RAID0 setup? If you have User data on the hard drive, such as movies, music, documents, pics, etc....there is no need for RAID0. Hard drives are more than fast enough for that kind of data.

A:Win XP Setup will not enter GUI mode setup

Just got off work, thought I'd include more information. My current main OS is Windows 7, when I hit Enter to go into GUI setup mode, the screen goes to black, no cursor, no blinking underscore, just blank. I remove the cd and when I try to boot into the XP OS I get the hal.dll error or the missing/corrupt file error. So I load into Windows 7 to check the partition out and see that there is no ntldr, no ntdetect, and no boot.ini (assuming this is all installed in the gui portion of the setup)

Still baffled with this.

I looked online for troubleshooting solutions, and I have so far found two options:

-Re-download because the error could be the result of a failed download that wasn't identified when the file was downloaded.

-Find and delete old files that could be stopping the file from being reaad properly.

Hi guys, wonder if anyone could shed some light on my issue please?
I am trying to reinstall XP SP2 on an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop, as it would not boot up correctly and hang. I tried initially to repair the installation from the Disk, but setup would load all the drivers and when it gets to the "Setup is starting windows" everything stops and just hangs.
I have a copy of unbuntu and i could boot to that off the live CD, and could browse the HDD contents. I then used the partition manager thing in unbuntu and made the disk one partition (thinking the partitions were screwed and opted to try to start from scratch!) This however has not cured the problem, and now im out of ideas... other than trying to install unbuntu only to prove the HDD isnt knackered!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'll defer to much more knowledgeable folks for the ultimate answer here but just looking at your spec's I think any modern graphics card will bottleneck with the rest of the system. Do you have a price range and what are your intentions for the rest of the system like do you plan to upgrade and when?. What do you use your system for primarily and such.

I need to find a way to export data from Outlook into SPSS via Excel or Access. Each e-mail message has 24 data points. When I export the Outlook folder into excel, it puts all the data into one cell, rather than 24 seperate cells. Are there any relatively simple solutions to this problem?
 

A:MS App Suggestions

bare with me why I try and understand what you are saying...

You get an Email with 24 parts of data? You want to export that Email into Excel/access?

If that is the case there are a few suggestions, the best being if you have control on how the data is Emailed, you might be able to just email it as a Excel formort. Outlook can load Excel spreedsheets inside outlook. (if I remember correctly, never had to do that, but rather sure it does).

If that is not the case, you can try exporting with Comma delimited, and have it use Paragrahs as the factor for where the comma's go. This would mean the Data in the Email would have to be in a format of: Each paragraph being one set of data.

Think that made since... Good luck

Hey all,

I am working on a Dell Dimension 4400. P4, 256MB, 40GB. Takes forever (10 min) to boot completely into XP Pro. I have run Spyware and virus scaners as well as Hijackthis... absolutely clean as a whistle. I have swapped out the memory, moved the system to a new hard drive, even done a repair install, absolutely no change at all. On startup, it only loads sound, Norton AV, Retrospect Backup software and an HP toolbox (for a laser printer). NOTHING else loads. Runs well in safe mode. I have tried disabling all startup programs and only get minor improvement. I know 256MB RAM is low, but it should run much better than it does.

Before I go into shopping for a new motherboard, thought I would check to see if I missed anything.. Any ideas?

Thanks
Randy

I am building a new desktop for one of my nurses.

She is going to use it to watch Netflix movies, surf the net, and prepare PowerPoint presentations. She doesn't play any games.

Her budget is under $900

This is the list that I come up with so far.

Any suggestions?

A:New Rig Suggestions

Here's what I'd go for:

CPU: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

LGA 775 is dead. Better go for a cheap, yet fast (very fast), AMD AM3 CPU here.

I've seen this puppy get up to ~3.8Ghz (on air) without breaking a sweat.

Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

785G is the way to go here. Somewhat future-proof thanks to AM3 socket. On-board Radeon HD 4200 should be more than enough for non-gaming tasks.

RAM: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ - Desktop Memory

HDD: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Western Digital, 320GB, 16 MB Cache. Rock solid.

PSU: Newegg.com - Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V V2.2 Intel Core i7 Compliant Dual 80mm Fans Full Cable Sleevings Power Supply - Power Supplies

This PSU will get the job done. I've seen it run Quad core systems with no issues whatsoever.

LCD Monitor: Newegg.com - Acer P235Hbmid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000:1(ACM) Built-in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Very nice choice =).

Optical: Newegg.com - Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD/CD Rewritable Drive - CD / DVD Burners

Keyboard / Mouse: Newegg.com - Logitech 967973-0403 Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Standard Deluxe 250 Desktop - Keyboards

Speakers: Newegg.com - Cyber Acoustics CA3550RB 68 watts 2.1 Black Speakers - Speakers

OS: Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full - Operating Systems

TOTAL: $835.39

~$65 bucks to spare. Maybe go for a better case?, bigger/better HDD?, more/better RAM?, bigger/better PSU?, bigger LCD Monitor?, etc...

I can't give much info in terms of cost, but the computer you have chosen will perform very well, and give you some upgrading headroom down the road. I have an i3-2100 in my server right now, and it runs very well for the cost.

Hello. I have a thermaltake soprano case, which I am going to use as the basis of my new gaming computer. I do own an AM2NF3-VSTA motherboard which I could use, or a could purchase another. I do not need a mouse, keyboard, speakers or monitor, and have around 700 to spare. I would like to make a decent enough pc so that I don't need to be upgrading it every so often. Any suggestions/ideas would be valuable. Thanks in advance..

First let me state that anybody who posts here should mention SLI as their opinion ONLY. I am a SLI user and love it. But I have gotten into so many arguments about its worth. So lets leave that out of here...

Lets see, 700 BP is around 1400 USD. Thats pretty good as seeing that I built my rig with 1000.

You want to be able to upgrade as you go, thats a wise idea. My board will support quad chips (as most today will) and 8GB or more memory.

I went and spent most of my money on the motherboard (since thats what allows me to upgrade) and used parts I had laying around to make up for it.

When I bought it it was 400 USD. Below are the links, 1 is the BFG (I have it) and 1 is the eVGA (they are the exact same)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813189003

I like having 3 PCIx16 slots vs the 1 or 2 you normally get. I also like the fact that the Northbridge is shiped with a fan that easily connects to the heatsink.

I would then get an "8" series GForce card. That way you will be able to run DX10

Welcome to the forums
Start the Recovery Console. If the ISAPNP.SYS file is still in your C:\Windows\System32\DRIVERS folder, the driver is corrupt. Rename the existing file and copy a new version from your WinXP installation CD. If the file is missing, then all you need to do is copy the file from your WinXP CD to the C:\Windows\System32\dRIVERS folder by typing the expand command: expand [CD drive letter]:\i386\isapnp.sy_ C:\win dows\system32\drivers\isapnp.sys.

A:SSD Suggestions

I'd probably go with the Crucial MX 100 if buying today.

Samsung Evo series would be second choice. They seem to be having some issues lately that is supposed to be fixed by new firmware soon. Something to do with performance on older files not being up to snuff.

If you have an ordinary desktop, I'd think any standard 2.5 inch SSD would fit. You may have to buy a mounting bracket if your case doesn't have mounting holes for 2.5 inch drives. Or you could use velcro or duct tape.

Intel is always a solid choice for reliability and good tools, but if you are a slave to benchmarks, you might not be amused by Intel's scores---despite the fact that the lower scores would not be detectable in ordinary use.

I'm planning on upgrading my computer. I already know everything I'm getting, but I'm not sure what wattage would be a nice sweet spot with enough to upgrade.

I'm planning on switching out my fans for non-led, getting a fan controller, and the NZXT RGB Hue. I was also going to get a new graphics card and possibly SLI (which I haven't decided on just yet).

At the moment I have a 630W. I may even get an i7 a little down the road.

Just curious if I should go with around 800-850 or if lower would work as well.

Price is kind of big for me since I can't afford a super expensive power supply.

A:PSU suggestions

I would stick with what you have and save till you can pop for a premium properly sized modular or semi modular PSU. Brands I like are Corsair, Seasonic, Thermaltake, Antec, Coolermaster. I would highly consider a 800-1000 watt depending on affordability and just remember the system draws only what it needs but it's the reserve of clean power that keeps the rig alive and even running cooler and quiet. If you see yourself using top flight components, SLI'g or Crossfiring or Overclocking then the extra capacity is well worth the added cost and remember that each year the PSU will lose roughly 2-5% output and this I think is where people can spec their PSU to close to actual need and have issues later. Also get a high efficiency unit in a Silver, Gold or Platinum rating.

Well my graphics card use to work fine..but now Im pretty confident that it is over heating. I can start to play a game and then sometimes it will either just restart the whole computer on me or it will just freeze up and stay at the screen. I cleaned out tower the other day so there isnt any dust clogging any areas. But how would I go and fix the card from over heating?

I m working on a new computer which I expect to set me back around The parts I have so far are Radeon Intel i Antec Case For the new Help rig with suggestions rest I have a few questions I read the TechSpot P Mobo guide but I m still a little hazy on what kind of motherboard I need Help with new rig suggestions It doesn t seem like there is any significant difference between high end and low end motherboards I will most likely only need a single PCI-e slot with the possibly of going CrossFire unlikely at this point Also I will probably stick with ATI so the EVGA FTW won t be a good investment What Mobo do you guys recommend For Memory I plan to get x GB It seems like all the brands are at the same price point so I don t know which to get I was thinking Corsair since they tend have a good reputation of being reliable I will probably get a PSU at the - W range and I m looking for some suggestions For HDD I want to get a GB drive because I will be mainly using my GB external for serious storage I will most likely get a WD as they have an excellent warranty This one is pretty insignificant but if there are any differences between DVD drives I would like to know your preferences Thanks for the help nbsp

A:Help with new rig suggestions

1) I read the TechSpot P55 Mobo guide, but I'm still a little hazy on what kind of motherboard I need. It doesn't seem like there is any significant difference between high end and low end motherboards. I will most likely only need a single PCI-e slot, with the possibly of going CrossFire unlikely at this point. Also, I will probably stick with ATI, so the EVGA FTW won't be a good investment. What Mobo do you guys recommend?Click to expand...

The cheaper ones.
Gigabyte's UD3 P55

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM crazy good deal.

CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
I would get a 5770.



5) For HDD, I want to get a 500GB drive, because I will be mainly using my 750GB external for serious storage. I will most likely get a WD, as they have an excellent warranty.Click to expand...

Did you need help with that?

Sounds like a toasty motherboard. Did you build the machine? Is this your first time building one? Did the computer fail on first powerup?

hi

I've just bought a 80Gb (7200rpm) HDD (not arrived yet) . The drive I've got now is a 7.85GB drive 5400rpm.

Should I install the OS on the new drive or the old drive? If on the new drive, I'll create 2 partitions on it so one partition is for data, the other is for the OS. Would it be better to use the old drive with nothing else on it or to just use a faster and bigger drive?

thanks.

I've just upgraded my motherboard and i'm really happy withy the performance of the computer however the cpu is really burning up when giving the processor a good bit of work it reached 98c. I'm sure that is way, way too hot for any processor so i have two questions one do people think that a good cpu fan will get that right down for me or are there other issues? And can anyone recomend a REALLY good fan/heatsink . I am willing to pay for quality. it's an intel 775 socket. Thanks a million.

A:PC Suggestions

Over all not a bad job of parts picking....but a few suggestions. Mobo - I'd upgrade that as that one is just a basic board. I would go with something like the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Open Box: GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SLI LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

I would go with a larger SSD...250 GB. I would also change out the PSU to an Antec, Seasonic or EVGA brand. If the budget would allow go with a Nvidia GPU such as the GTX 970.

I have a plantronics supra plus HW261W headset that I need to work with. It is connected to a HP TouchSmart 610 all in one. When the headset is connected it wont connect to my workbooth it gives me a error message of "There is no compatible sound devices installed on this computer". When I researced the problem I have tow choices:
1. Use a USB headset recognized bythe IP communicator -or-
2. Upgrde to the latest version of the IP communicator

The only choice that I have in the matter is to upgrade to another version in hopes of it matching my headset. I dont know what else to do and dont know how to upgrade to another ip communicator. Can someone please help with suggestions. Tech support from the job is saying to get another computer. I just purchased this one 7 months ago.

If you don't have a problem with your computer, using a program like HjT isn't exactly appropriate.

Let's see this:

Click Start.

In the search bar, type MSCONFIG and hit Enter. Click the "Startup" tab.

Write down only the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

Submit those names here in a vertical list.

Hey guys,
I've had my current system for about a year now and my current hardware has no problems or anything but I have a little bit of a larger budget now and am looking to upgrade my CPU/GPU. I'm not sure if I should do both or just my GPU but that defiantly needs an upgrade. I play Skyrim a lot with ENBs' and get 20-30 fps when playing with those special effects.
That just wont cut it for me, so I need some suggestions for the best deals on some hardware. and price cap would be somewhere about 300 bucks but if its a good enough deal, i may consider it. and i gotta have at least 2GB of memory.
Thanks
