    a redonkulas heat sink

    I am enamored with the banchetto 103 tech bench. I want to put an Asus gryphon z87 uATX motherboard on it with a i7 - 4770 k processor. I want to put a big honking hunk of shiny copper on it. What is the biggest baddest most ridiculous while still being functional heat sink you would want to...

I recently bought another dual channel kit 2 X 1GB OCZ Platinum Enhanced Latency sims. I would like to run them all and have 3 GB but not sure how to do...

    Best uATX board for an E6600

    Wanting to put together a small form factor case. I've never worked with micro ATX boards before. The boards I've been reading about have less than adequate raid solutions and are restricted to 1.8v ddr2 800 ram. Its a minor point but they also have onboard video which seems a waste to me as I...

    MSI 6800 Ultra

    last year i bought this card " MSI NX6800V-T2D256E ". I always intended to eventually buy another to run sli mode. Now I can't find it at the vendors and MSI doesn't it list it in their products. Has it been discontinued and if so why? They still list 6600 series boards.

    Best 6800 Utra

    Looking at buying a 6800 ultra for an air cooled system and was wondering which of all the dozens of brands has the best stock cooler, really looking for one that may take up 2 slots but exhausts the air out of the case. Having a hard time googling a review that covers the coolers.

    Fedora Core 3 on a SATA RAID

    At work I recently tried to install Fedora Core 3 on a relatively new Dell workstation. Its an INTEL system with a SATA RAID 0 set up, 2/ 80 gig hard drives. When I attempted the install Fedora could not recognize the Disk Array. Doing research I found The Linux kernel (ata_piix module)...

    AMDReview.com SLI Review

    I just read this review http://www.amdreview.com/reviews.php?rev=SLI today. I never read a review from AMDReview before so I'm not certain but this looks very much like an AMD company propaganda site. They say "SLI requires a very powerful CPU to make it worthwhile, so I would recommend not...

    CM Stacker Module

    Does anyone sell after market modules that mount in a 5.25 drive bay, (or 3) and will hold a 12cm fan with a shroud and a heatercore? It would be great if there was a module like that for the CM Stacker you could install the same way as the 3 into 4 drive bay.

    Gawd I'm getting tired of waiting on an MSI K8N NEO4 Platinum

    What happened to late November, or early December? I was supposed to be reading a round up review of NForce 4 motherboards from several manufacturers by now. The only one I've seen actually in stock and for sale is the plain vanilla Nforce 4 with no overclockability from Gigabyte. I read a...

    Rad Placement

    Will a 120mm dual or triple radiator mounted to the top of a case fit between the rails of a 5 1/4 " drive bay or is there some cutting involved?

    Thoughts on SLI cooling

    I assume I'm not the only one to give some thought to this predicament. Two video cards..... probably very hot running video cards. I think I read somewhere that the video cards are putting out more heat than the procs lately, at least on the AMD side of things. Definitely don't want two GPUs...

    Lian Li cases

    Alot of Lian Li cases have the optical drive cage over 2 external 3.5" drive mounts over a Hard Drive cage up front. How difficult would it be to reposition that hard drive cage far enough back to allow a radiator behind the front fan intakes and would it be possible to route water hoses around...

    Embarrassing question

    Ok, like I know that DDR500 has higher bandwidth (read top-end) than DDR400, and I know that the speed (read quickness/acceleration) of ram is dependent on ras, cas etc. timings. But I read all these articles about overclocking ram, say running DDR400 at DDR433..... ummmmm what does that mean...

    Looking for a case...

    I'm soooo confused! I've been digging around on the internet looking for an aluminum case with a 120mm intake on the bottom front and a 120mm outlet fan on the middle back. Preferably with a slide out mobo tray, mounts for at least 2 - 3, 5.25 in. drives one external 3.5 in. drive and 2 - 3...

    3800+ vs FX-53

    I was trying to make up my mind that the best value in an AMD proc was the 3500+ so I was reading an article http://tech-report.com/reviews/2004q3/athlon64-3500/index.x?pg=1 that was about the 3500+ comparing it to the 3400+ which really proved to be a very close comparison, but that's not the...

    3Ghz Athlon64?

    Opinions welcomed

    I've got a 800 mhz laptop that was hot shit when i bought it about 5 years ago. It still does adequately for what I use it for, but i want to build the big fast gaming machine now that I'm out of school and portability is no longer the issue it used to be. Since I'm starting from zero I can pick...

    What's the deal with INTEL?

    I keep hearing conflicting messages. I read a disturbing message about a month ago that said the age of speed was over and they have hit a limit to how fast they can go with current technology, next they will be going to heavily multiprocessing platforms putting a lot of the M-class chips into...

    If you were shooting for your max OC which P4 would you use?

    I'm buiding my first PC from scratch and after copious research have arrived at a watercooling solution, PolarFlo TT blocks, DTek CSP X2 pumps, a Dtek Pro 120 Rad, and a double bay Rez. (Two cooling loop format). Yes I think I can fit that in a PC-V1200 case. (smile) I understand a little bit...
