    Need help finding a fan connector

    I've been searching for awhile now, and I'm having trouble finding a connector that will fit this small of a fan header. The connector's 3-pin, but it's tiny! I'm looking for an adapter, or just the connector, or anything that will let me get a normal-sized 3-pin fan to plug into it. I...

    Investigating Point-of-Sale Systems....

    Hello. I'm investigating Point of Sale systems for my work. We're a small jewelry store that currently runs off stock numbers, but a barcode/POS system would simplify sales and especially inventory processes. I was curious - does anybody have any experience with POS systems? The...

    Got my first SFF... free!

    Sort of. I got two dead, but free, Dell SX280's from work. They're USFF's with external 220w power supplies. The boards had burst caps, which is apparently normal for SX280 motherboards, so I ordered a motherboard out of an Optiplex 745 USFF, since they're hardware compatible and can take...

    Anybody using an Exos LT for their 360?

    Hi all. Finances are starting to work out in my favor! As such, I bought an Xbox 360 a couple of weeks ago. After purchasing the console, I started doing a lot more reading and I'm now rather concerned about the console's temps. I immediately discounted stuff like the Intercooler and other...

    In the market... SLI-Ready?

    Hello [H]ardForum, I'm in the market for some new memory. I'm aiming to be as budget-minded as an enthusiast can be, while getting something that actually works (for once). My last 3 kits were G.Skill F2-6400CL4D-2GBPK, all of which have died on me. None were overclocked, and I'm sick of...

    Can it be done?

    nVidia 7950GT + ATi X700, in one system. I got a free x700 from a friend, and I'm wondering if I can install the gfx card in my SLI motherboard (Asus P5N-E SLI, nVidia 650i chipset) and use both cards independently of one another. My reasoning is that I'd like to be able to watch smooth DVD...

    HP dv6000t audio problem

    I've just reformatted my wife's HP dv6000t. Intel Core 2 Duo, gigabyte of ram, GeForce Go 7400, etc. The computer froze during a Windows update and still had a lot of bloatware on it, so I decided to reformat. Previous to the reformat, she was experiencing some sound errors with the computer...

    MBP - 128mb or 256mb video?

    I'm pretty sure I'm ready to take the plunge and make a new MacBook Pro my main machine. I'm a full time student who commutes to school, and I miss my old 12" PowerBook for the portability and note-taking it allowed me to do. I used to game quite a bit; however, now all I really play is World...

    I've finally decided

    I've finally decided on an LG 30FZ4D 30" Widescreen HDTV to use as the base for my home theatre aspirations. After going to Best Buy today and looking at all the HDTV's within my price range, including a few smaller LCD HDTV's, this one came out as the clear winner. The picture quality through...

    HDMI to DVI questions

    Hi everyone. I'm starting to delve into the wonderful world of HD and HTPCs. My cousin can get me a big discount at BestBuy, and rather than looking at LCD TV's as I was previously I've moved to 16:9 wide aspect CRT HDTVs; I can get a lot more for my budget. One lingering question that I'm...

    MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum chipset fan...

    Mine is beginning to die already. Because the high-pitched noise of such small fans annoys me anyway, I had originally purchased a passive Zalman cooler. However, after applying an Arctic Cooling NV4 heatsink to my 6800GT, the Zalman turned out to be much too tall to use. Have any of you Neo2...
