    My Thermaltake Armor A30 Review

    this is the same tired old Tt lanbox from 2006 but they added a fan on top where people used to mod them. its a nightmare to work with because the sides don't come off (only the top), and the PSU over the CPU means you can't even use a decent heat sink. thnx for bumping a year old thread.

    Diablo III Hacking?

    wouldn't be surprised if these same people who have had their gear and gold stolen also installed a .dll injector map hack. Of note also if you read the 20+ page on the official D3 forums, most are noticing the same player names in their recently played list.
