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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The stock fans should be enough, but I have a feeling you are going to do a massive over-clock, so every piece of hardware will be affected. The rule is:
front fans blowing in
top fan blowing out

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

Ok. I'm looking to silence an XFX GeForce 6600GT 128MB PCI-E. I'm was wondering if anyone could recommend a VGA cooler that I could stick on there. The main things I want from the cooler are silence and one that doesn't take up an extra slot.

Is this possible?


A:VGA Cooler Recommendation?

Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer NV6 (Rev2)

I have the same brand cooler on my graphics card it is excellent!
it has :

New clip and back plate design for better fit.

New fan casing design to enhance compatibility
A filter is integrated into the PCB to reduce the noise generated from the motor.

A large fan and optimized fanblades offer a minimum noise level at a high air flow.

Highest fin surface area and a 2.5 mm thick copper base achieve best cooling performance at its noise level.

ARCTIC Ceramic Bearing (alloy bearing and Ceramic shaft) provides our fans with an outstanding service life.

The DHES draws cool air from inside the case and exhausts warm
air outwards. This prevents the fan from recycling warm air to cool the
GPU, which increases cooling performance. Furthermore the DHES lowers the air temperature inside the case, by drawing out the heat of the GPU.

I fully recommend this cooler it costs $37 AU so it must be extemely cheap if you live the US

Purchased Cooler Master #DP5-6131D and ready to install but instructions are not clear. It says to apply Heat Sink Silicone Compound but not sure if this goes on the whole surface or if you leave the little square in the center clear of compound.

A:Cooler Master

The compound is applied to match the raised area on the CPU called the die. All you need is an extremely thin layer to make contact with the die.
Relevancy 67.51%

On average, a silver compound will hang a few degree's C lower than a compound that is composed of grease. Reason, metal conducts heat better, but its not as conductive, as true metal. In fact, both greases and silver compounds and such conduct alike. But if your temps are a huge issue, get a silver compound, they are formulated to align during bonding, which helps create a much easier transfer of heat. its only a dollar or so more, and its all I use, I'd go for it.

Hi all.. im currently using this Cooler Master GX 550W Bronze 80 Plus PSU with my current rig.. I don't know but for some reason people here saying that this PSU sucks and is known for damaging hardware. So tell me should I buy a new one that is better than this? or does anyone have any Good/Bad experiences with GX Series PSU's Please Help!

Reason i'm asking is im worried. I just recently build a new rig and I don't want to fry any of the components due to the malfunctioning of the PSU! Also I heard a strange kind of noise that came only once from the Rig side.. it wasn't a beep but it sounded like thin and sharp noise like pooooooiiiiinnnngg.. don't know if it came from the board or the psu or any other thing... but PC kept running fine.

That is a decent psu, but is on the lower end of their models. Looking at your specs you have a good build. I would get a better psu, and keep it as a back up for testing. Corsair and Seasonic are good choices, others will add more. The psu is one component you do not want to cut corners on. I would go for a modular one.

Hello. I just ordered a new heatsink for my Core 2 Quad Q9550 at stock clocks (2.83GHz), and I was wondering if anybody else had any experience with this heatsink. Any advice would be useful because this will be my first aftermarket heatsink. If you could provide installation tips or stuff like that, that'd be good too. Thanks.

A:Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

Two things. First, understand that if your Intel CPU was a retail version that came with an Intel supplied heatsink fan (HSF) assembly, then according Intel's CPU policy, using a 3rd party cooler voids the warranty! Also note that damage attributed to overclocking is not covered under any CPU, motherboard, or cooler warranty either, regardless any overclocking features or software provided by motherboard makers. Certainly, this is not a concern for some enthusiasts. But it is a concern for many others, and everyone should be aware of it.Intel CPU Warranty Information (my bold added)Intel warrants the Product (defined as the boxed Intel? processor and the accompanying thermal solution)... ... if the Product is properly used and installed, for a period of three (3) years. This Limited Warranty does NOT cover:• damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing; OR
• any Product which has been modified or operated outside of Intel's publicly available specifications
Note that is NOT my opinion, I am just the messenger making sure you are aware of Intel's policy. For AMD readers, they have the same policies about overclocking and the use of 3rd party HSF assemblies on CPUs that come supplied with OEM HSF assemblies.

Second, the proper use of TIM is essential. Here's my canned text on that:

An often misunderstood and sometimes overlooked critical hardware component is thermal interface material or TIM. TIM is typically seen as a thermal pad on a CPU heatsink, or in paste form. It may also be called thermal grease, silicon grease, heat transfer compound, thermal paste, heat sink compound, goop, and probably more.

The 4 Most Common Heatsink Fan (HSF) Assembly Mounting Mistakes:Failure to use TIM
Used too much TIM
Reused old TIM
Did not clean mating surfaces thoroughly before applying TIM
The purpose of TIM is to ensure all the microscopic pits and valleys in the CPU die and heatsink mating surfaces are void of heat trapping air, maximizing surface to surface contact. Any excess is too much and gets in the way, and can actually be counterproductive to the heat transfer process.

Materials Needed: One clean plastic shaft Q-Tip (cotton swab), acetone or 91% isopropyl alcohol (note - most rubbing alcohol is 70% and leaves a film, 91% alcohol can be found at your local drug store), clean scissors, can of compressed air, and the TIM. I recommend one of the new generations of non-metallic TIMs such as Tuniq TX-2 or AC MX-2, or the venerable silver based TIM, Arctic Silver 5.

WARNING: Keep yourself grounded with the case to ensure there is no static buildup and discharge that might destroy any electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive devices. It is important to realize that the "threshold for human awareness" for a static shock is higher than the tolerance of ESD sensitive devices. In other words, you can shock and destroy a CPU, RAM module, or other sensitive device without even knowing there was a static discharge! Use an anti-static wrist-strap or frequently touch bare metal on the case to maintain your body at the same potential as chassis (case) ground.

Preparation: Power off and unplug the computer from the wall. Cut off one cotton swap near the end. Bend the plastic shaft about 1/2 inch from the cut end to make a nice little hockey stick. This is the working end of your TIM application device. Clean the die and heat sink mating surfaces with a soft, lint free cloth dampened (not dripping wet) with acetone or 91% alcohol. Do not let any fluids run down the sides of the CPU die. Clean skin oils from the working end of your applicator with the alcohol dampened cloth. Blast the surfaces with a quick blast of compressed air to ensure the surfaces ar... Read more

How does one do this? I have a cpu fan error on bootup so I cleaned the inside of the pc w/compressed air but still got the error. The heatsink is huge and CM's site doesn't say how to replace it. I've been told that, in general, you just remove 2 screws but then read somewhere else you need to actually remove the cooler from the motherboard, which is hard to believe to just get to a fan.

A:Cooler Master Elite 431

You would ordinarily use the I/O USB ports that show at the back of the case which are directly connected to the motherboard. So when you choose your motherboard, pay attention to number and type of USB ports the motherboard provides and decide accordingly. If you need more, you can buy a USB hub or install a PCI or PCI-E add on card for more USB ports.

it is allowed to have 2 fans on both sides, i have only one fan now i bought it that way so if i buy the other fan and plug it in the other side will increase the cooling and lower the noise or make it worse noise?!
thank you

A:Cooler Master hyper 212 plus?

Two identical fans is going to make more noise than 1 fan.

You should use a single fan that blows air THROUGH the heatsink fins and TOWARD the rear of the case, where you probably have an exhaust fan.

That heatsink is generally well-regarded for cooling purposes, but I'm not sure about how quiet it is.

You may have just had bad luck and got a noisy example of the fan.

Or that particular fan may just be noisier than you like.

My advice: replace with another fan KNOWN to be quiet: low to medium speed Nexus, Yate Loon, or Scythe, for example.

Make sure you have mounted the heatsink and fan to blow air as I described above.

A:Cooler Master 500 PSU amperage?

The 6A rating you see as part of the technical specs is for the connectors, not for the output power of the UPS IMO.

Insufficient power will not damage your PSU as much as it will damage your UPS via an overload. This is probably why it is not working anymore and the "Overload" light is flashing. Your PSU will try to pull as much power as it needs to convert to DC, and nothing more. Have you recently upgraded your system with a more powerful GPU, CPU or more HDDs? That may be the reason for the overload.

I am putting together a new build with a hyper 212 plus and some corsair vengeance memory that goes right beside it. The problem is that the hyper 212 extends slightly into the 1st slot of memory. The vengeance memory is way too high with the heatsink on it. What can I do? Can I put the fan on the cooler to pull instead of push or will I lose some cooling? Do I need to get different memory? Can I take of the heatsink on the first stick? Thanks.

A:Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus question

Looking at that memory, it looks like there's a little tab/hole/thing to pry the heatsink off. Don't force it, because you might cause damage. But if you can get it off gently, the RAM should operate fine without it.

I'm not sure about the difference between push/pull cooling, but I think you might lose some efficiency if you set your fan to pull from the other side. I've seen several dual-fan coolers that have a fan on both sides, but every single-fan cooler I've seen has a fan pushing air, not pulling, There's probably a reason for that.

You could also try turning your cooler so it faces another way. This might mean disrupting the airflow though.

But yeah, don't force the heatsink off. If it doesn't behave, you might want to pick different memory, or a different cooler.

I have an old cabinet, but I'm thinking of buying Cooler Master Gladiator 600 (it's the only budget option available in my hometown). What I've been thinking is will Corsair VX450W psu's cords be long enough to re-route the wires (The case has system for bottom mounted psu)?

A:Cooler Master Gladiator 600+PSU question

Think you will find that this is one of those that you're just going to have to try it and see. You could measure how long the 24 pin and 4 pin motherboard cables are, and then using the new cases dimensions measure from the sockets to roughly where the power supply will be mounted. If they aren't long enough you will need one of each of these (if you can find them locally), - Athena Power 12" P4-12V (4Pin) connector Extension Cable. Model Cable-AD09 - Cables - Athena Power 12" EPS (24Pin) connector Extension Cable Model Cable-AD08 - Cables

so that they will reach.

Edit: Just found this,

300W to 450W: 20 Power Supplies on the Test Bench - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

which shows that the cables on your PSU are ~24" long, which should make them more than long enough. About the only thing I can see is you may want one of those 4 pin extensions, as due to the location of the block on the motherboard without one you may find you have to snake it under the video card as I don't think it will be long enough on its own to run it up the front (and out of the way).

I plan to buy new PSU for my build I5-2400+GTS450
Is this cooler master good?
anyone has it and can tell is it reliable? Is one 12v rail good or bad.. i was reading some reviews and still am confused

A:Cooler master GX-450W good?

That will run $60- at newegg. - COOLER MASTER GX 450W RS450-ACAAD3-US 450W ATX12V v2.31 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Ironically for the same price I just picked up a pair of Corsair CX600 model 600w supplies onsale until last wednesday one now in use on the old Antec 900 Vista case running Vista there and the second for a new 7 Pro mini tower case about to be fired up later today. Still waiting the last two items to finish that one up.

As for a 450w model it will mainly depend on how much hardware and what hardwares it will be used for. For a minimum stock case it will meet the minimum requirements. But for any ocing or placing heavy demands on it you may want to consider a larger model supply with more then one rail as well as more connections.

Recently built the above system and every thing is all fine. I do a lot of video/audio conversions + downloading continuously for 24hrs and have the computer on for many days even wks without ever having a problem.

However, recently i notice some funny readings from speedfan v4.25 on the 12 read:

3.3v: 3.34v
Vcc: 4.99v

does that mean i have a faulty psu or is it normal cos the 12v is on 2 railings and speedfan is only reading one of them?

i also read that theres a software that can stress test a psu....i cant recall the name but i think it begins with the letter o, any one has an idea?

I've recently acquired a Cooler Master Seidon 120v and am currently trying to install it on my ASRock Fatal1ty z97 Gaming motherboard. I've connected the pump to the first chassis fan and the radiator to the first CPU fan slot. Upon booting to the BIOS my CPU temperature keeps rising, I've seen it go as far as 80 degrees, at which point I just turn the PC off. I set all fans to full speed. Thermal paste is applied well. Either the pump doesn't work or I just can't hear it. Any suggestions?

To add some information, my stock Intel fan worked well and reduced temperatures to about 60 degrees under load. Now it increases without any limit in the BIOS screen.

That is a good cooler, but I personally like at your budget range the Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio

But either will do you fine for 4.0ghz on a 3570k

As for more airflow, adding more fans can help, but make sure to just focus on having a good overall flow through the case which will be a huge benefit in general.

I'm curious if there are any places around the internet where I can buy some Cooler Master SATA power cables? I went to Cooler Master's site, and although it's $4 if I remember correctly, it was about $20 in total to bring it here to Calgary. Kind of expensive, I was looking for something cheaper.

I guess when I had my system built, the store forgot to give me the power supply box. They told me it didn't come with a box, which most power supplies do come in one with all the accessories.

A:Cooler Master SATA power cables

From looking at your system specs it says that you have a Corsair PSU and a Cooler Master Case. So, I'm going to assume you are talking about the accessory box for the case. I believe you can go to their web site and do an online chat. Just tell them you bought one of their cases that was missing the accessory box and ask them if they could send you one. You may get lucky. But, be aware that Cooler Master is not known for quick customer service.

I have a cooler master storm scout case.
I have a 750 watt Power supply.

I live in institutionalized living conditions, (kong term medical recovery), where the air here is very very dry in the winter.

Lately I have been having issues with my computer turning on.

I press the power button and it goes up and down, but no power starts up.

I've checked the plug, even unplugged it at both ends. No good.

Only after I start moving the case around, to get access to the insides, does it start up.
Any ideas what might be causing this condition? Thanks.

Which case has the potential to be cooler (temperature wise)? I like both of them, so this is what its going to come down to. My rig is going to be very hot especially when I put a second X1900XT in there so I need a case thats good with airflow. My guess is that the Raidmax one is cooler because it has more fans but someone told me that those two side fans only mess up the front-back air flow that you want in a case... that would make the Coolermaster for the win. But.......

What case is for the win? I dont know anything about cooling so I need your opinions!

Hi guys,
I am purchasing a new motherboard (G/B GA-EP45-UD3P) and a CPU Cooler (Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme) for my PC. However, I read that the CPU Cooler is 16cm high, and I am worried that it might not fit in my Antec Nine Hundred Two case. I got out a ruler and measured from my motherboard to the end of the case, and it reached 17.5cm, but I'm still not sure if it will fit or not. Also, if you could suggest another CPU Cooler that is better, which there pretty much isn't, that would be appreciated.

So im planning a PSU upgrade for the future.

I have read some reviews on the Corsair HX series and also Coolermaster Silent pro Gold series. Both seem like pretty awesome PSUs only major differences I have read is rippling is lower with Corsair.

At this moment the Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W goes for $229AUD, and the HX-1050 is $265AUD online prices of course.

Anyone have any preferences between the two?

hello, all

I'm looking at a build based around the core i5 2500k. Usage is for general computing with light gaming (Starcraft 2). the the i5 2500k is probably overkill for that, but i also enjoy having a really good computer for no real reason! (this build is for personal fun as well)

overclocked 2500k
quiet pc, stylish look that won't scare off my gf

what is a good cooler that will sustain the 2500k @ around 4.4GHz? I've looked at the H70, but will something like the H50 (with one less fan) suffice? Or what if I change the fans on either of these coolers?

Im looking at the antec p183. does anyone have experience with how quiet this case is?

I appreciate your help. The overall budget is $1000 CAD before tax (which is 13%)

A:i5 2500k overclock, quiet cooler and case?

I'm running an i7 2600K at 4.6GHz with the H50 cooler. Have two Akasa viper fans on the radiator, but to be honest the default single fan that comes with it isn't too poor. Given that stress testing on the i7 version has to deal with 8 threads the i5 with only 4 should probably be fine with the H50 and default fan for running at 4.4GHz. Only thing is that I got mines with the hope of pushing the overclock a bit higher but find I'm up at 70C with extreme stress testing at 4.6 so mostly it's just a quieter solution to most air only coolers, if you want more headroom in the future I'd probably spend the little extra and grab the H70, or a proper non sealed loop water cooling setup.

Hi everyone:

I use a Nikon D70 for semi-professional work, and for quick pics used a five year old Casio QV-R4.

The reason I say "used" is because just today hubby dropped it somewhere and was unable to retrieve it. It's gone for good. It had been a gift anyway and not a brand I would have normally chosen.

I'd been thinking about getting a new, smaller one to carry around easily, as I love my D70 but it is cumbersome. I peruse Imaging Resource quite a bit, but thought I'd ask around here for recommendations too.

I'd like a big LCD screen, and a small overall size. And quality best as possible. In other words something like my D70, but not a DSLR. I am a Nikon nut, but am open to other suggestions.

Any advice or recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance . . .

Currently using a Radeon X700Pro. I'd like to upgrade to something that will have manufacturer supported drivers for W7 64. I don't play games but use Photoshop and watch/work with some videos. Any ideas for PCI Express x16?

A:card recommendation needed

if you're sure you don't want to play any games, then you don't need a card with a noisy fan. cards are available with passive cooling systems that rely on big heatsinks.

anything with either an nvidia or ati gpu will be fully supported by windows 7.

you really don't need to spend much money these days on a low-end card. anything from the ati 3000 series will have more than enough power for photoshop and movie acceleration.

Been out of buying computers for a while so I need help here. I guess PCI Express has pretty much replaced AGP? But anyway, the machine I'm looking at uses PCI Express (PCI Express x1 and x16). It's a P4 3.2 with 512MB DDR, XP Home. The person it's for plays World of Warcraft, Diablo II, then some other lower quality games so I don't need any extremely advanced card. Anyone recommend a decent PCI Express gaming card from NVIDIA?


A:PCI Express Recommendation Needed

What do you want to pay? I could say any card and it could get by on those games pretty good, but of course if you don't mind paying $600 then you could buy the best card and not worry about the future for a while.

I am running 64-bit Win7 and it appears that drivers are not available for the video card I have. I don't play games, just use Photoshop and watch videos. Since I may get a new system next year, I'd like to spend under $100. Any recommendations? i was thinking of a BFG Tech BFGE98512GTGE GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card, at $80.

Unless you are looking for something to tie you over until you rebuild, given the rapid advances in gfx (all) components, I wonder why you would buy today for next year's machine.

A:ASUS MOBO and CPU Memory cooler help needed please

Well I can't make out your pictures but it won't hurt to use coolers for the RAM or chipset. The board alreadt has a heatsink on the Northbridge but you could put the other one on the southbridge. If you plan to overclcok then this help disipate any additional heat thats generated.

I personally like thermal paste over pads and I think they do a better job at transfering heat.

I used to use an HP recommendation needed mouse brand mouse simple -button optical with scroll wheel that was perfect even with the default Windows mouse drivers until the left mouse brand recommendation needed button went bad I picked up what Walmart had- a Logitech M This has driven me up the wall since I started using it It is useless with default MS drivers and the Logitech setpoint thing is annoying as can be I can never get things set up the way I like them It's either too slow or too fast no matter what even with mouse acceleration on the pointer still never feels right I have to check the option to disable acceleration in games otherwise the mouse zooms everywhere and then it still acts slow I had to crank in-game mouse speed settings up quite high to get the mouse to do anything useful and it still feels sluggish And to just be even more annoying Setpoint has trouble determining what is an actual GAME and programs like Photoshop activate game mode so I get a mouse that's slow as a snail Now I have that HP mouse somewhere if I can dig it out to get the model ID I'll buy another of that if they're still for sale anywhere otherwise can anyone suggest a good - USB mouse that isn't going to frustrate me to no end I don't need some expensive gaming mouse just a basic desktop PC mouse preferably one that runs well on the MS drivers

A:mouse brand recommendation needed

I use the Logitech M100 with no issues at all on Windows 7 Home Premium. I don't game, so can't comment on that.

I also like the Microsoft 4YH-00006 "basic optical mouse for business". It's white, but I think the 4YH-0005 model is black and identical. These Microsofts have a taper in the middle that you don't see on the Logitech M100. Length and weight is about the same.

The 4YH-0006 is 4.5 inches by 2.2 inches, tapering at the narrowest point to 2.0 inches. Shown on base as "version 2.0"; "MSK-1113B"' "Model 1113"; Part Number X821908-001.
All of the above have cords between 5'9" and 6'0" and all are cheap--10 or 12 bucks. All are wired optical with a scroll wheel.

You have to be careful. Some mice have shorter cords and some are smaller and might be more suitable for smallish hands.

The Microsoft 200, part number 6JH-00001 is grey, but it's a bit small. Might be OK for some.

I am looking for good, free or inexpensive, backup software to allow scheduled backups of data from a laptop to an external hard drive. Again, I need to be able to schedule backups, as well as set up exactly what folders get backed up. And the software must create some sort of place for each backup seperately on the external hard drive, not just overwrite what has already been backed up. Log creation would be a bonus, too.

Please only recommend software if you have first hand knowledge of it. Thanks so much!

Do you want them just to not be able to disable the remote desktop, or not be able to disable anything?

I've recently installed a Vertex 4 in my computer and along with that, my old primary HDD started to fail - So I copied all that I needed and formatted it in windows 7 via disk-management.
Earlier today I wanted to remove it from my PC, because I had no use for it but when I did, windows would not boot. I was told that it was because the MBR was stored on my "old" primary HDD and that I needed to run a Repair from the Win7-DVD, but the DVD is ofcource outdated and this would force me to reinstall Windows all over which is really the last resort I want to deal with.

Is there anything else I can do to fix it?

Your post is almost indecipherable with all of the typos and misspellings. Please use a spell checker when posting.

Next you need to list your current system specs; ie exact mb, video card, pw supply, cpu, etc before anyone can recommend a case for you. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, or whatever, those are generally proprietary and often will not fit in a standard atx type case.
