Lamptron FC5V3: 2 channel sits at 0 rpm on startup

On some what frequent occasion, at least 3 times since Friday (when I install it), channel 2 and 5 is not rotating and at 0 rpm when boot up. So what I have to do is rotate the dial clockwise, and bump it up to 1100 rpm or so, then everything back to normal. After that I turn the dial back down Now,...

What makes Lamptron CM615 costs so much more?

http://www.lamptron.com/product/controllers/cm615/

street price is $137

is their quality much better? As a regular 6 chnl. controller can be as cheap as $37

but I like good quality, so the question is, how do they justify this price?

Re: Can you re-use the dust bag in vacuum cleaner, like Miel

I did look in to the dyson. There are serious problems w/ it. Go to amazon.com and read the customer review on all the dyson. I spent several hr. reading it. They don't work well after 6 mth., there are a lot of complaint.

The miele has 10 yr. warranty

Can you re-use the dust bag in vacuum cleaner, like Miele?

For those vacuum cleaner that uses dust bag, can you not empty them, and re-use it? How does the vacuum cleaner itself knows, that I empty the dust and re-use it?

because in the manual of miele, it says "Miele dustbags are disposable and made to be used only once. Do not attempt to reuse"

why?

Can you run 3840x2160 as main LCD, and 2560x1600 as 2nd LCD?

and a 1920x1080 as a 3rd LCD on the same PC?

AS some1 said 3840x2160 is MST, and MST doesn't support 2560x1600.

SO say you have a 650 GTX Ti Boost, can you run MST on the display port and 2560x1600 on the DVI port?

Or do you have to do it on a 2nd video card?

Re: Is carbon based TIM better than Ceramic based?

Okay, I miss that. I didn't realize they have room temp. that low. So in the end, it's a handful of degree of temperature only. From the low to the high, about 6 deg. C

6 deg. C is not that serious, but if my CPU can drop 6 deg. C, it would still be a very good thing.

Happy Hopping : Read more carefully; the 63C high you mention from the Hardware Secrets roundups is WITHOUT ANY TIM. The real range they found is 32-40C, based on a quick scan, and they state their error margin as 2C, which means anything less than that is meaninless (ie, the relevant temp variance...

Re: Which Noctua fan is more quiet: NF-A14PWM or NF-A14 FLX?

I have heard from more than 1 source that for those who have PWM connects to the motherboard, that somehow, it stop working after awhile.

My upcoming PC does have a manual fan controller. So I'll lean towards the FLX.

what do you mean by adapted to xeon mount? The Noctua is designed for LGA2011, and your Xeon is LGA 2011, so there shouldn't be any need for any sort of adaptation?
