    Centurion 5 and modded for 120mm front intake? Possible?

    i am looking to get a new case for my new components and this caught my attention. on newegg it is only $65 with shipping included. It comes stock with a 80mm fan in the front. I was wondering if it was possible to mod the Centurion 5 to take a 120mm front intake fan like the Coolermaster 532.

    Will SLI work with 2 6800GTs with possibly different Revisions?

    The reason i want to buy a 6800 GT is becausei already own one. Just curious if i bought a 6800GS SLI would not work, correct? i'm going off what the first reply mentioned. If i am wrong this would be better since the GS isn't EoL

    Will SLI work with 2 6800GTs with possibly different Revisions?

    I am planning on buying a second 6800GT but the picture on the vendor's site shows the card having a different heatsink than the card i currently own even though both cards are Asus EN6800GTs. Is it possible that they are two different Revisions and if so does it matter if the Revision is different?

    Stuck at Memory Test on Boot-up

    Ok, so my friend wanted to over clocked his computer. He asked me to help him because i successfully over clocked my Giga-byte 845Pe667 Ultra mobo and Intel CPU. His BIOS only gave the option to increase the FSB and DRAM Voltage. The default frequency was 200Mhz so i had him increase it by 10Mhz...

    Will this heatsink work with a Athlon 64 3500+?

    But what makes it strictly 478? Is it that the surface that come in contact with the CPU is too wide, deep, shallow, etc. Or is it because the mounting screws won't allign with the screws on the Motherboard? I may have to just wait and use the HSF that comes with the CPU for now until i can...

    Will this heatsink work with a Athlon 64 3500+?

    I was wondering what made heatsinks Intel or AMD heatsinks or if it really doesn't matter. I have a http://www.swiftnets.com/products/mcx4000-T.asp and it's considered a Intel Socket 478 heatsink. However, does this mean it is absolutely incompatible with a Socket 939 for a AMD Athlon 64? Would...

    Wierd HDD Problem - Any ideas?!

    If you can use a 98 Start-up disk, then you can just copy files over to a folder on the working drive as another option. I imagine some of the names are too long for DOS so it truncates them with a "~1". To get around that you can use wildcards. (e.g. i want to copy a file battlefield2demo.exe...
