Ghosting Screen, Any suggestions

Hey. Got my new pc up and running. I am very pleased with it. However, I have a ghosting issue when I connect it to my 40'' LCD via VGA. I always have the PC connected via DVI for my monitor, but occasionally I use the extended desktop mode. On my old pc, with the same 40'' LCD and same VGA cable, t...

Re: Thermal right axp 140 on Asus p8h67 I deluxe

Might have a look for different heat sink then one that doesn't use a backing plate. Don't see the point in the backing plate anyway.

I need a heat sink that fits like the intel one that comes with the i3 where there is no backing plate just a push down click into place

Re: Thermal right axp 140 on Asus p8h67 I deluxe

Hi. I have those mounting parts in the box. But I think it's for socket 775.

Is there no way to convert it to a push down lock type cooler so it can remove the backing plate

But the 1155 back plate appears to touch the tiny black squares on the back of the motherboard so the backing plate doesn't sit fully flush. Is this going to cause a problem wi...

Re: Quiet, small performance build

Ok. I have ordered the p8h67-i Deluxe with the corsair 8gb ram package. Quad core is nearly double the price, I don't think I will really benefit from it so im sticking to the i3 2025 hd3000 which supports dual display. I'm going for the sea sonic fanless PSU for the simple fact if I choose to add a...

I was looking at going for hd 3000 with the 2025 i3 processor. Is there No quad core processors that support hd3000? ...

Re: Quiet, small performance build

If im building a micro atx will everything fit in the mini atx case? No, Micro ATX is bigger than Mini ITX. A mini ITX motherboard will fit on micro ATX case, but not the other way around. Thats why i suggested all the mini ITX mobos, but you apparently change your mind and went with Micro ATX. A n...

Hi.

Thanks again!

You can get fanless PSU that sit up in the same place as normal PSU's sit so just having a look at those too
