    TSA Screener Steals $50k In Electronics from Travelers

    Sounds like someone should build a small explosive charge into an ipad and blow a TSA employees hand off for being a slimey crook. Obviously this could horribly backfire but one can dream :D

    VHB tape to attach fan?

    I'm looking to add 1 maybe 2 more fans to the mesh metal side door on my case and was thinking of using small 1/16" 3M vhb tape to secure them. The mesh pattern doesn't line up with the hole pattern on my 120mm fans and I have a bunch of this tape laying around. Thought it might help with...

    PS3 Headset Recommendations Please.

    Thanks for the input guys, its good to hear that most usb headsets will work with PS3 that way I can get a decent one and use it with my PS3 and PC. I'll do a bit of forum searching and see what I can dig up. I'm trying to sell my Razer Carachias headset for 50 so if I can pull that off I'll...

    PS3 Headset Recommendations Please.

    I'm finally taking the plunge and getting a PS3, a friend of mine was trying to tell me that I had to use a headset that was made for the PS3. I told him I thought he was full of *@($ and that it should take any USB/Bluetooth headset. But before I run out and drop some cash on a good one I...

    Which 120mm fan flows the most with least dBA?

    That is a miss print it should be 69 CFM and the dBA is a little higher than 19. When they first put the blue ones on sale they were also listed at 90 but then corrected to 69. I guess they never bothered to fix the red ones.

    Mid-tower case $150 or less, simple, classy, great airflow, little to no mod?

    I just recently built 2 antec 300's with i7 920s, GTS 250 (fits fine) and a 750tx. If you have a little bit of cable management experience you'll have no troubles with this case. I was able to get ALL leftover wires into the cable management cubby using the adjustable straps included with the...

    Power Connectors and Sleveing Questions

    I just finished sleeving my PSU and used CLEAN CUT 1/8" sleeving from Furryletters on Ebay, I believe its $5 for 25ft (+2$ shipping). If you want to practice that would work pretty well. I would go with murdermod for the kit tho. Its very high quality and they have the right amount of...

    Best cooling for my rig?

    I've heard that for years, and always believed it, guess I had convinced myself if corsair put their name on it, the product would be better. Megashadow it is :D

    Best cooling for my rig?

    Think I might give it a whirl, I wont be doing any extreme overclocking, if it gets me in the 3.5-4 ghz range safely I'll be pretty happy. I'm attempting to stay on a budget (so hard..) so the sale price is pretty appealing.

    Best cooling for my rig?

    Any idea if the rad blocks a fan from being next to it? The exhaust fan is a standard 120x120x25

    Best cooling for my rig?

    I've been pulling a few pieces together for my new @ home gaming build and would like some advice on CPU cooling and fan setup. My wife bought me this case for christmas last year (with no input from me). It's not exactly what I would have picked but I'm modding it and making due...

    How will my i5 750 perform vs i7 920?

    It all depends what your doing, i5 is very capable. if your gaming you probably wont notice much of a difference. Raw processing the 920 will win, partly because of the triple channel memorty. i5 can OC pretty far, but some have found contact issues with high overclocking on boards with...
