They are unique when they leave the factory, the first 6 characters specify the vendor, the last 6 specify the device, but if you go under the properties of the network adapter there's an option to specify the MAC.

It's normally labeled something like Network Address, Physical Address, Locally Administered Address, etc. Wireless adapters are a little harder with Vista/Win7, but there are third-party programs that will do it for you. Routers can do this too, I think every home router I've seen has an option for it. Reason being certain modems, specfically cable modems, look at the MAC address of what they're connected to, which affects how they get DHCP from your service provider. Say you have a Linksys and a Netgear, or even two of same brand. As for your wireless, did you have multiple devices connected to the wireless?

How do I optimize my video for the web? Derek Stanley In this article we will go over some recommendations for compressing your videos for delivery through the Amazon S3 servers. A scenario you might be familiar with is that you have filmed and edited your content into a package that meets your needs, but once you go to view your video on your website it takes forever to load or the video stutters during playback.

This problem is not necessarily a bad encoding, but it could be the result of not encoding your video to a targeted connection speed. In an ideal world you would be able to load your uncompressed video directly onto the web and end users would be able to view the file. To reduce the data being pushed through your video you will have to perform a compression using a codec, which was covered in our previous article here: My video has no sound or picture, am I using the right codec?

G.Skill F4-2666C16Q2-64GRB DDR4-2666 Memory Kit Review

Desktop users witnessed the transition from 2GB DDR to 4GB DDR2 and 8GB DDR3. Yet, now that DDR4 is out, we’re still stuck with 8GB modules. Where are the 16GB DDR4 DIMMs? It wasn’t so long ago that DDR3 was limited to 4GB per module. This became strikingly clear when one of my friends, a technician, was asked to upgrade a customer’s LGA 1156-based machines. Whatever the reason for today's lack of 16GB DIMMs, the only thing a memory vendor can do for enthusiasts who want 64GB right now is to sell a set of eight modules. We’ve seen the memory development process follow a specific speed-capacity-speed path over the years, where IC manufacturers typically need several months to increase the performance of higher-density parts to the standards of lower-density predecessors.

A bone-stock 1.20V allows these DIMMs to remain cool while tightly packed. Johnny Lucky Solid State Drive Database. ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Professional Motherboard Review. March 16th, 2015 at 8:09 am - AuthorLuke Hill We will be outlining the ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Professional motherboard’s performance with the Core i7 5960X CPU at its stock frequency (3.5GHz due to forced turbo).

Overclocked performance will be outlined later in the review. The first thing to point out is that we were forced to use Corsair memory as opposed to our tests system’s standard 2666MHz G.Skill Ripjaws4 F4-2666C15Q-16GRR set. We could not get the system to run stably with the G.Skill kit’s XMP configuration (despite the kit being on the QVL), although this is an issue which ASRock knows about. Other memory vendors’ parts seem to be unaffected. Multi-core turbo (MCT) is not applied automatically when XMP is enabled on ASRock’s motherboard. CPU-Z is unable to track the motherboard’s voltages in real-time, so we rely upon ASRock’s own monitoring tool for system voltage readings. ASRock sneakily applies a higher-than-stock DRAM voltage of around 1.25V.
