    Gentle Typhoon AP-15 instock

    Tsumi is correct. AP-29 and up don't NEED a fan controller, they're mostly for people who NEED the additional cooling of the higher speed fans. Yes, they're noisy, but you can't get around that if you're going to move that much air out of a 120mm fan. If you only occasionally need the extra...

    Check out deals at Dell on refurbs on the Dell outlet site. I got a computer like that for a friend for around 260 plus tax. It had a couple of scuffs on the chassis, but the computer has the same warranty.

    Can't find Scythe Gentle Typhoons anywhere

    From what I'm told, you may be waiting quite a long while...as in months. There MAY be a few on the market at the end of October, but that's not definite, and other than that, its going to be around 3 months or more before anything shows up in the US.

    I hate you, Newegg.

    This is correct...there is no such thing as free shipping. According to our UPS rep, companies like this pay only a fraction of what it costs other smaller retailers due to the volume they ship, but it still isn't free. Sales tax can't be avoided in some states, everyone has to actually have...

    Logitech MX518 Mouse $18 MIR Newegg.com

    I think I have over 5 years of daily use on mine and it still works perfectly as well. I have a G5 also, but use it at work because I still prefer the 518 for gaming. GREAT mouse.

    First watercooling setup - sanity check + questions...

    For silver, you can often find it on ebay. If you're looking to make coils, just search for .999 silver bezel. You can also find the silver bezel strip at places that deal in jewelry making supplies. Some people also just toss a coin that is mostly silver into their reservoir. Might try a...

    CM Hyper TX3 for 775. Decent?

    The Reeven RCCT-0901SP is pretty decent, especially for 19 bucks. Not the quietest though, but any cooler running a 92mm at 2500+ RPM isn't going to be exactly quiet (at least to my ears). Review: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/reeven_rcct/

    Does anybody have any contacts at Hiper? Need help.

    Perhaps the company you bought it from could get in touch with them and have them contact you. As a retailer, I certainly would be willing to do that if I had a customer having such difficulties. However, if they bought it through a distributor, they might have the same trouble as you.

    Computer shuts off when on UPS power

    Does it shut off immediately, or does it stay on for a minute or so? Does it go into shutdown or just switch off like someone unplugged it?

    ChildProof Quality Fan Controller?

    Another idea is to use velcro. Put some self-adhesive tabs on the knobs, then put a strip across them. Small children probably won't think to pull the velcro to fiddle with the knobs.

    Want some 120mm fans! Questions!!!

    For 120 fans, I'd go with Scythe Gentle Typhoon. No lights or anything, but they're a much higher quality fan than the sleeve-bearing fan you linked to. They're pretty universally liked, and they can be found for 14.79 to 14.99 depending on the store. The Google Shopping thing is what I tend to...

    h50 vs VenX vs Tuniq tower X

    For 35 bucks with the 1366 adapter, you can get a Core Contact Freezer, it includes a fan...still a very good cooler. For 43 bucks you can get a ThermoLab Baram, no fan, but a great sink. For 53 bucks you can get a TRUE 1366 RT, with fan...excellent cooler. All are cheaper than your current...

    Why buy a Venomous-X over a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT?

    Why buy a Venomous-X over a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT?

    Just curious why I'm seeing this trend. There is a 12 dollar difference (at least in my case), and the Venomous-X doesn't even include a fan....any ideas? 52.95 vs 64.95? Just seems like 53 bucks is a steal compared to the Venomous-X....

    Stainless steel fittings in watercooling and galvanic corrossion

    most fittings are chrome plated, a little different than stainless unless I'm totally mistaken. Way to be nice there, guy.

    Stainless steel fittings in watercooling and galvanic corrossion

    So basically, we could do stainless, so long as we took the proper precautions and used the right fluids? Just use some anti-corossive and replace the fluid every 6 months or so?

    Stainless steel fittings in watercooling and galvanic corrossion

    Anyone know if there are any galvanic corrosion issues with Stainless being used in a loop? I was thinking about this last night but didn't find anything that said definitively when I searched around.
