    Thermalright Shaman + 6970... anyone try it yet?

    The mosfet sinks fit fine for me, I just cleaned each one thoroughly with Isopropyl alcohol and stuck it on after they dried. I'll take it out in a few days to see if they're still there.. but looks good so far! I did not buy the Thermalright VRM cooler in addition though.

    Thermalright Shaman + 6970... anyone try it yet?

    I installed the Shaman last night - HUGE improvement overall already! The loudest thing in my case now is a set of Nexus 120mm "Real Silent" fans to give you a reference. I'm running ~29C idle and ~45C under load after an hour of Battlefield BC2. This being compared to the 80-90C I was...

    First drive is waiting at my door step, no signature required. That was a lot faster than I expected! The other 2 are delayed until the 24th. That was a lot slower than I expected! Give and take, constantly. :P

    Configure QoS for gaming on DD-WRT?

    Hi, I have a WRT 54G running DD-WRT for my home network hosting a 10MB cable connection. I use this connection for downloading frequently, but I always throttle my speed to the neighborhood of 500kB/s to prevent ruining my roommate's online gaming experience. However, it seems that for some...

    HTPC w/ NAS

    The point of the workstation is to keep my media centralized. I've got almost 3TB of video files on that system that I'd love to play on the HDTV. Would I basically have to copy the files over every time I wanted to play something? There's no way to efficiently stream 1080p over the network?

    HTPC w/ NAS

    Currently, I have a Q6600 with 4GB of DDR2 and an 8800GTS as a workstation and have recently acquired a large 1080p LCD. Would it be possible to build a cheap HTPC and leave the decoding to the workstation? 1080p is a must. I'm trying to build an HTPC as cheaply as possible for 1080p and...

    Sharing audio/video with PS3?

    Thanks for the post! I've found several cheap HDMI switches around $40-$50, but I don't quite see how the audio is shared since most only have HDMI ports.

    Sharing audio/video with PS3?

    Currently, I have a 20" 2005FPW monitor which would be my main display until I get a HDTV in the Fall. I'd like to have some kind of KVM to swap between my computer and a 60GB PS3 without having to move any cables around, how can I accomplish this process? The rest of my system is in...

    Erasing metadata on a raid array?

    I'm just curious, if I erase the metadata on my Raid 5 Array, is it possible to restore the data within intact? I'm assuming the usage of some third party tools is necessary. In order to create a new array using the same drives, I would have to initialize the drives, ie: formatting them...
