Memtest86+ is a utility designed to test your memory for read and write errors. We’ve put together a quick guide to learn how to use it.
SSD ‘Smart Response Technology’ is simply using a small SSD drive to cache system data, while still having all your files actually stored on a traditional mechanical hard drive (HDD). What that means is you get the best of both worlds: speed and capacity. Great access speeds for day to day usages via the SSD as it fills with commonly used files, and the bulk storage benefits of your traditional HDD for all your applications and files.
We show you how to setup SSD caching on an Intel Z68 motherboard.
AMD FX CPUs overclock well if you know the right settings, and the CrossHair V Formula motherboard is ROG’s 5th Gen AMD hardware, so the team behind it has plenty of experience under their belts. As supplementary reading, we strongly recommend you reading a very good article titled the CrossHair V Formula Oveclocking BIOS Guide, written by Raja.
With that in mind, I am not going to go into too much depth about those aspects here, instead I’ll be aiming at getting you directly up, running and overclocked by providing clear steps to follow in order to achieve a solid all round overclock with your new AMD FX processor. From here, and with Raja’s guide, you experiment to fine tune your system and learn more.
Following our recent BIOS guide for the Maximus IV GENE-Z, here’s exactly how you can reach an easy 4.4GHz with the popular Intel Core i5-2500K processor. This guide is applicable to other ASUS P67 and Z68 motherboards, including the Sabertooth P67, the Maximus IV Extreme and Extreme-Z as well.
A redundant array of independent disks, or RAID, is a way of storing the same data in different places (where the term redundant comes from) on multiple hard disks.
There are many ways to use RAID and there are several different types of array. Some use multiple disks to increase performance – think a two or three lane road instead of single, that has to serve traffic going in two directions – while others are used to increase reliability. Additionally, there is a third type of RAID that offer the best of both worlds; all of which we’ve explained here.
If you are looking for a ROG’ing good gaming motherboard the supports the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor family for the LGA 2011 Socket then you need to read on. Today we are going to be having a look at the Rampage IV Formula Motherboard. I do not have to say too much about what Republic of Gamers is all about. Certainly one of the most recognised top end product range in the enthusiast market.
Overclocking was once considered a dark and forbidden art, but no more. Now overclocking is an accepted part of computer components. From the CPU manufactures across the board (bad pun intended) and ASUS has been at the forefront of that evolution with the ROG range of motherboards. Just as the hardware used for overclocking has evolved and developed so has the manner in which overclocking is practiced.
So you want to go multi-GPU for the first time, but are not a hundred percent sure what to do or how to go about it? Fear not intrepid gamer, this simple step by step walk-through will make the process of setting up a SLI or CrossFire system a breeze.
This guide is divided into two distinct parts. First we have to physically install the cards in the appropriate dual card configuration, and then we have to configure the cards in the OS to enable dual card operation.
