    Galaxy S III

    For those saying 1080P on a phone is impossible, this isn't the first time it's been heard of. http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/27/fujitsu-quad-core-phone-hands-on-video/

    Looking for a new laptop, roughly $1100

    I'm a big fan of the 15.4" form factor (preferably with a 10-key), and 1920x1080 if possible. I specced out an HP DV6T Quad Edition with an i7 and 1GB Radeon 6770M for around 1030, which so far is the best deal I can find. I'm willing to go a little above that, but not much. I'd like to have...

    The Totally Awesome Directron Drawing!

    I have had a long history with AMD, and their processors have always performed just fine, and day to day I never notice the difference. Even in gaming I rarely do (for what I do). AMD's where it's at for the price (and if they're free it's even better.... haha).

    HP Touchpad 16GB $99, 32GB $149, Active for .edu

    Ah crap man that sucks. My fiancee got hers ordered but processing the payment is giving hassles like described earlier.

    HP Touchpad 16GB $99, 32GB $149, Active for .edu

    I noticed that they're still for sale in the small/medium business site. Just ordered a 16GB one! $130 after shipping and tax

    HP Touchpad 16GB $99, 32GB $149, Active for .edu

    I've been wanting a tablet for a long time for work. The touchpad seemed like a great fit but since my boss won't pay for it, anything over ~100 is out of the question. Sucks that I wasn't able to get one of these. I was thinking about it, too, but apparently waited too long. I guess that's...

    Amount of RAM?

    I gotcha cool. I wasn't 100% on that aspect of Sandy Bridge. I know on my 920 I had to increase the BCLK but on Sandy Bridge I guess you can't really do that.

    Amount of RAM?

    Can you overclock RAM or use fast (1600+ ) RAM on locked sandy bridge CPUs?

    Amount of RAM?

    Yeah I'm pretty familiar with Linux, it's been my primary OS for about 7 or 8 years now. I wasn't sure if F@H could use more RAM if it was available. Thanks though! :cool:

    Amount of RAM?

    I gotcha. Ubuntu is kinda bloaty from my experience, but I am using an SSD (which means I should be using GPT) and my motherboard has EFI not BIOS, so GRUB2 is a pain to manually configure (which is what I'd need to do with Arch I think). I've been too lazy to do that. Usage should go down...

    Amount of RAM?

    Hey all, I have a Xeon E3-1230 and it is a great CPU so far. No overclocking unfortunately but it is pushing out a 6900 WU in just about 2 days spot on, (second WU on it, I don't remember the other one, but the time was around the same). This is around the same as my overclocked i7-920...

    Back to folding!

    Yeah I'm very impressed with it. Moreover, impressed with the way Linux handles the FAH client these days (I remember back in the day it didn't do a very good job of multitasking while FAH was running). Now I don't even notice it, which I guess is how it should work anyway. I need to get...

    Back to folding!

    I had an i7 920 which I overclocked to around 4GHz and used it to accumulate 1 million points in what seems like no time at all, however it got way to hot, so a while ago I sold my folding box and bought a cheaper low power PC and was happy with it, except lately I got the itch to fold... So a...

    Zotac Z68-ITX Wifi

    I'm glad it's good for you. Unfortunately it sounds like maybe there's a corporate disconnect or something, because here in America I always hear terrible news about their customer support. It's a shame because their boards are great spec-wise.

    Zotac Z68-ITX Wifi

    I've experienced the same thing, when I was using a Xeon CPU on that same board, the voltages were set wrong and the adjustments weren't varied enough to set it right myself, so I emailed them and they basically told me that since it's not on the list of supported CPUs they don't plan to (and...
