    Steam Controller $5

    Tempting tempting....hmmmm...wish they'd specify that it doesn't put your games on the tv, it's just a normal controller. A little misleading advertising.

    AMD AM2+/AM3 HSF removal

    THIS. I never boot my machines up when I remove the HSF. Just twist it a few times back and forth until it breaks free. Works better when cold.

    Well, I didn't want to take my CPU cooler off. I bought my CPU in May 2010.

    Newegg $25 off $100 dollar purchase

    It did that for me, too. You have to calculate shipping first. Then apply the code. For some reason, that fixed it for me.

    Newegg $25 off $100 dollar purchase

    Picked up a Foxconn A7DA-S 3.0 AM3 mobo and 4GB of Patriot DDR3 1333 for $72 AR and AC. Awesome! Got my tracking number, too!

    CrazyPC Going Out of Business Sale

    Was going to order the Scythe Katana 3 to upgrade from my stock AMD HSF, but they want $10 shipping. That negates the 50% off since I can get it from Amazon for $23 shipped 2nd day air. EDIT: nevermind, it's not Prime eligible. So, it's still the best deal. Just can't justify it. I'm cheap.

    AMD Athlon II X2 210 for Windows Home Server "Vail"

    I thought I'd chime in. My server specs in sig; runs great. ~400-500 mbps over gigabit. EDIT: Server specs for the blind: AMD Sempron LE-1150 (45w single core 2.0GHz 256KB L2 - basically the second slowest "normal" AM2 chip AMD ever made). Gigabyte GAM68M-S2 2GB Patriot DDR2-800 Windows...

    Samsung EcoGreen F2 32MB Cache 1.5TB $69.99

    Apple to end free iPhone case program September 30

    Maybe it's just me, but I got an iPhone 4 and used it without a case for the first week I had it. Never had a dropped call. I've still never put anyone on mute or anything either. In fact, it's been the best phone I've ever owned. Maybe I'm lucky.

    BFG Completely Liquidating, no more RMAs accepted. Project Manager blames Fermi

    I'm really going to miss the semi-annual free upgrades thanks to their warranty and thanks to their incredibly fail-tastic fans.
