    I've got 2 questions (and something odd to share) that I was thinking of when watching that Cell Factor trailer on the main page. 1. What resolution do you guys run the demo in? I'd imagine it to be fairly high to get an enjoyable experience with all that nonsense flying around. 2. Does the...

    LC n00b Help!!!

    I'm currently working on a parts list for a mod that I've started to work on. After figuring out that air cooling would be completely idiotic in my semi-SFF case, I've started to look into watercooling. Spacewise, I have 3x 5.25 drive bays and about 100mm of space below them before you hit the...

    Anybody heard anything good/bad about the Asus M2N-MX? No reviews, no sites have touched it. It has the PCIe1x in a spot where you could get away with a dual slot cooler too. It has 10/100/1000 ethernet cause it's the 430 chipset. 2 things that I don't understand about it...
