    Good Cheap Fan Controller

    30 watts will run anything short of the bid Delta fans, more than enough for most case fans.

    Google Sheltering $10B In Bermuda

    Considering on how the top guys at Google are Progressives, who verbally condemn anyone using offshore accounts I don't think the main issue is who or what they can sponsor with their money - they've been doing that all along, The moral to this story is that the rich fold who advocate for...

    I need help OCing i7 920 for streaming.

    I have a couple EVGA Classified motherboards that I think I listed for sale :P Very good at overclocking :D About your chip, depending on which stepping it is, the 920 was one of the best fixed core clock CPUs around for OCing, especially the "D: stepping ones. You manipulate the BCLK in...

    New to water cooling

    Too many links to go through, so I'll just add some 2 cents on top of what came previously :D You will not get the performance from any prefilled closed system (such as the Corsair H80) that you would out of a well conceived custom built loop. Ain't gonna happen. I've reviewed both the H80...

    Weird Temperature Problem

    If the motherboard has a jumper or switch for sub-zero, make sure it's set to off. Reseat your CPU, you are probably not getting good contact between the CPU and heat sink / water block. Use a premium TIM recheck :D

    Best AntiVirus

    I have a friend who is Director of IT at a firm in the UK that provides equipment to movie studios and recording artists. He had his team do a study last year and they came away saying that Kasparksy was the best product. Since, I've read reports that the new Kasparsky PURE is far and away...

    Best LGA 2011 air heat sink?

    Nice thing about the high end Thermaltake HSF is that they come NATIVE for 2011 sockets. Easy peasy to mount. The Frio OCK is great but loud, the Frio Extreme uses two 140mm PWM fans and is nice and quiet - will beat the noctua in cooling too. Note you'd need low profile ram for the Extreme...

    Which Asus MB to get for my 3770K

    R.O.G. Gene is great for extreme overclocking, but too small for a gamer IMO. I'd look at either the formula or the extreme. But that's just me :P

    Help me build a balling Ivy Bridge watercooled system in a TJ11 :-)

    I didn't read all 7 pages leading up to this, so I may be repeating someone... even myself perhaps :P Koolance makes a really cool 2 bay reservoir that can accommodate either one or two Lang D5 pumps. You can use one pump and combine the two resv's, or, you can use two pumps and have two...

    Computer Won't Boot

    Any time a new video card causes system instability, the cause is almost always an insufficient power supply. Hopefully, you didn't destroy anything on your mobo or HDDs in the process. Either your PSU died, or something else did, or both. Never skimp on a power supply, it's the most...
