    Games And Movies Are Merging

    Dear Esther is a recent game that springs to mind. First person, but all story.

    DDR3 RAM for X38 - any?

    Cheers - I've been over the QVL and the manual, but it's pretty dated. I guess my biggest concern is the voltages - the Dominator that I've got runs at 2V (!!) but I'm guessing newer RAM shouldn't be an issue? I've only got the RAM @ 1600MHz at the moment, and I'm not sure if it's the RAM or...

    DDR3 RAM for X38 - any?

    Looking at RAM options for my desktop rig (in sig). It's an X38 Maximus Extreme board with 4x1GB Corsair Dominator in them. Starting to find that 4GB of RAM is a bit prohibitive at times. My question - will any DDR3 kit work? I will probably stick to 2GB sticks, I don't need more than 8GB in...

    Fold for the [H]orde and Win!

    Quick question - can NewEgg vouchers be redeemed from overseas? Specifically, Australia? Bah, who cares, 4K PPD is easy done :)

    Happy Easter [H]ard Folders!

    Sweet! All sounds like good fun. Looks like I will need to upgrade video cards soon, might look at a GTX680 when they land here in AU. Will be a nice addition if I can get it.

    Happy Easter [H]ard Folders!

    Happy Easter [H]ard folders! Long time member, been a while since I posted, and on and off folder for the [H]orde. Thought I would share what I am folding with this Easter! Both my systems are in my signature. Recently got the QX9650 to 3.8GHz stable with the RAM at 1600MHz. For a 4 year...

    Mineral Oil Submersion. Down Sides?

    That sounds pretty much ideal. Mineral oil is pretty annoying to work with though, its very much like a clear lubricant and tends to go everywhere, so naturally keeping it well sealed is crucial. Thats about all I can offer, other than read other people's projects and have some fun with it!

    Mineral Oil Submersion. Down Sides?

    Fantastic! I'm guessing too, that anything other than a fishtank will be much better to move the oil around in an efficient manner. Certainly don't expect water-cooling type efficiency, but I'm guessing you're doing it for reasons other than cooling :D

    Does USB flash drive slow system down?

    I don't see why it should, unless something is continually trying to access it. And even then, in games there shouldn't be anything noticeable. Have you noticed anything?

    Mineral Oil Submersion. Down Sides?

    Mineral oil is a great novelty, but doesn't work well for cooling, unless you are able to remove the heat from the oil (using a radiator of some description). I have an old P4 ~1.4GHz system at work that is submerged in mineral oil in a large fish tank as a display, and while it gets plenty of...

    Post your coolermaster stacker 830,831,832

    Thought I would post up my 'new' hi-end rig - I've had it for a few months now, and I've only just taken photos of it tonight: Coolermaster 830 nVidia Edition: Mounted the boot drive using the supplied Raptor X mount, instead of an empty fan spot: The internals: Note - thats the HSF...

    Australia Cancels Broadband Deal

    You have to remember this deal was started when the old government was still in office, and most likely did not work with the new governments plan for broadband internet. Secondly, the major problem was our major telco out here (Telstra) was having a major gripe with the proposal, saying that...

    Australian R18+ Games Debate

    Thought this might be worth a read for a lot of people, it seems as though the debate about games classifications will not go away anywhere: Full article:,25642,23447566-5014239,00.html Its interesting that the debate can carry on (both here in...
