    Zotac Z68-ITX Wifi

    For someone using the GT430 version of this board, how loud is the fan on the GPU? I'm planning on going water with this board and was hoping that it will be quiet enough, or have a possible waterblock or aftermarket heatsink available.

    i2500k itx build

    I would be most concerned about the fps in large engagements. Hopefully someone has tried to run this game at this resolution with sandy bridge. Also, is the 430 that big of an improvement over sandy bridge onboard? I was under the impression that it was about the same as entry level offerings.

    i2500k itx build

    Hey guys, I'm considering building a nice little mITX rig for portability. I'm sick of lugging my P182 back and forth to university. I've been eying up the SG05 for quite some time now and have had elaborate ideas come and go. The most realistic setup I would use at this point would be a Z68...

    critique my build?

    Hey there. Just curious as to why you chose an H67 motherboard with a K-series processor. If you are going to overclock, you will need a P67/Z68 chipset. If you don't want to overclock there is no need to buy the unlocked K versions of processors. Hope that helps.

    Display for Photographs/Photoshop/Films

    Look for a nice IPS panel, I personally have that U2311 and its amazing [coming from a few TNs], similar color to a CRT. Horrible for gaming though.

    Hated it - Show your Mice you thought was cool then soon after Hated it!

    I had a Razer Diamondback for the longest time until it started breaking down [still keep it with my netbook]. I got a G5 when this happened, and I can't see myself using the Razer again. The low profile-ness was kind of cool, but didn't really help and wasn't ergonomic at all. I'll be using my...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Why the disgusting color scheme, honestly. Reminds me of a 15 year old P3 motherboard, lol.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Awesome definitely keep us updated. I'm planning a build either in January or maybe a little later (looking @ Sandy Bridge).

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    I wouldn't want this personally because then it would be a pain to ever open the case, It would be hard to make it look nice (lots of cutting compared to drilling a few holes), and I MIGHT be putting my own window on the side anyway lol.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Can't wait to see results. I don't see how drilling new holes ~10mm away or something would be too challenging, meaning a normal rad will fit in the back.

    What would my perfect case be?

    For a while now I've been wanting to do a brand new build, and I was almost certain that I would use the Lian Li V354 once I heard about it (and saw it), but I'd like other peoples opinions on the matter. It will be housing a mATX mobo, i7 with a decent OC, 5870, and other essential components...
