    [SOLVED] Computer booting turns off and turns back on.

    It's not really a problem I don't think but... Sometimes (Not all the times) whenever I go to press the button to turn on my PC, it turns off for around 2 seconds and then boots back up - nothing bad happens, it just boots up as normal, no boot loop, no errors, it will never turn off by itself...

    Question I have strange temperatures for my CPU

    I have a AMD FX-4350 and my room is 20 degrees C. However on high load (Running a game) the max temp shown for my CPU is 19 degrees C, and on idle it's around 7-12 degrees C.

    How do I transfer an my entire drive to a new SSD *AND* have the SSD actually boot on install.

    I'm not totally comfortable with any Windows backup program. Carbon Copy Cloner works exceptionally well on OS X, the closest I've found for Windows (my primary OS) is XXClone, which still leaves about 5% of files uncopied. So when I want an exact duplicate of a disk, I put a Live OS (such as...

    MOBO bandwidth sharing: PCI-e and PCI-X

    Okay, I'm not sure I have the proper nomenclature to express myself here, but I'm going to give it a try. The way I understand it, no matter how many PCI-e slots and lanes a MOBO has there is a total upper limit to the number of lanes (and hence data) that can be moved along the PCI-e data...
