    Re: is it a virus?

    Not finding a virus is not evidence there isn't one necessarily, but there's another way it can be ruled out with a simple test.

    Keeping in mind that the virus has to have a host, whether it be...

    Sticky: Re: ATTENTION all members!!

    With all due respect, I'm not seeing the problem in your example. If Norton's program isn't designed with a friendly enough user interface that it can be set to permit an app without posting about...
  3. Re: I can use liquid capacitors for busted solid capacitors, right?

    Generally they fill the cap with aluminum foil and an insulating layer as much as possible, the maximum that will fit in the diameter and height available, then they saturate it with electrolyte, ...
  4. Re: I can use liquid capacitors for busted solid capacitors, right?

    Strange, I used Foxit PDF reader to open it, didn't see any foreign language on the page.

    On the remaining caps I wonder if they were dried out, or just a formulation that uses only a very tiny...
  5. Re: I can use liquid capacitors for busted solid capacitors, right?

    The pictured capacitors where not solid, only when it has a liquid electrolyte is the top *needing* to be stamped to form a vent if pressure builds up. They are Sacon FZ series, here is a datasheet...
  6. Re: I can use liquid capacitors for busted solid capacitors, right?

    First of all, solid capacitors don't usually bulge, the bulge is from liquid electrolyte building up gasses. Therefore I think you have a surface mount electrolytic capacitor, and yes you can...

    Re: Long Time MSI Guy Has Questions

    Integrated video typically adds little or nothing to the cost of a board these days, I like having it so later when the system is upgraded the parts can be reused for a non-gaming system that uses...

    M3N78-VM Power-On By PS/2 Mouse

    I've an M3N78-VM motherboard which supposedly can power on by PS/2 mouse/keyboard according to the manual. There's a setting in the bios to enable this feature as well, which I've enabled.

    With...
  9. Re: How to tell if the CPU's fan is going to die?

    It is untrue that the fan typically has 3 year lifespan. On high speed running 24/7 you might expect at least 5 years or more. On low speed with fan control (I don't remember how well that board...

    Re: Questions on running dual PSU's

    The problem with using a different PSu for a video card than for the motherboard is when the motherboard is also supplying that voltage rail to the card, in which case the (somewhat) higher voltage...

    Actually over the long term, usign two median grade PSU instead of one expensive one is far better, because it halves the heat density and doubles the exhaust rate, not even considering that in...

    Re: Questions on running dual PSU's

    Some PSU have a weighted feedback system such that they aren't regulating entirely off 5V anymore. No (PC) PSU needs a lot on 3.3V to regulate, BUT some of the more sophisticated do have an...

    Re: video drivers for 6100

    Yes you are expecting too much, there is no integrated video that will perform as well as a GF4 TI4400.

    Newer doesn't automatically means better, it depends on what it actually is you're...

    Re: Enermax Enlobal 120mm fan check it out!

    I agree that this portion of the fan is unique, but there is no evidence this significantly reduces noise as a supposed-quiet, lower RPM sleeve-bearing fan does not have audible bearing noise.

    I can take the C-clip off any fan and it'll still work. Is it a wonderous thing to save even another fraction of a cent by omitting it?

    Leave it to Enermax to advertise a low-end fan as something special.

    The PCToys items are particularly deceptive:

    Nonsense, any modern fan...
