    John McAfee

    RIP McAfee. He was a legend for infecting nearly every Windows 95 computer with McAfee Anti-Virus and later his far out lifestyle. Will be interesting to see if any "dirt" he allegedly had on people materializes.

    Are SFF about to get bigger?

    This is just something I was thinking about the other day… Is it just me or is the size of our SFFs going to have to change? Efficiency keeps going down, but power requirements keep going up. For an ATX case, this isn’t a big deal – throw in a larger PSU and an even more insane cooler...

    Does the 3007WFP or LP3065 support HDCP/Blu-Ray at native resolutions?

    Does the 3007WFP support HDCP/Blu-Ray in its native resolution? Some old threads seem to say that HDCP is not supported, because the monitors use a 2xDVI interface. Sort of...

    Intel to promote the Mini-ITX form factor I don't know about miniITX replacing microATX any time soon, but I like to see the focus on new SFFs.

    Is Crossfire or SLI possible on any modern mATX board?

    Both SLI and Crossfire seem to use one of these fixed bridges: However, I know the latest cards from DAAMIT use a ribbon connector: Has anyone maybe seen a mATX board with a x4 slot near enough the x16 or...

    Compilation of Best Deal [H]unting Tools

    All, I see many people posting "deals" on the boards that are easily beaten by a quick search on any of the top price search engines. Hopefully this list will save some fellow bargain hunters from wasting their time and money sifting through shady or junky hot deal threads. This also has a list...

    New hope for C2D Overclocking?

    EDIT: Setting your clocks this high on this board is apparently STUPID and will probably start killing components! DON'T DO IT! :D This is the P5L-MX I just got. Specs: *P5L-MX (G945) VCORE: None VDIMM: 2.00v FSB: 450 It can boot into Windows as high as 425 and I am sure the...

    TForce: "'0.' is not a valid integer value" - what revision do you have?

    Know a few of you were getting this error with the Windows overclocking utility. Have a theory that it's due to your board revision and the utility does not work with earlier revisions. If you click past those pop-ups and look at the options real fast, alot of them are defaulting to "0" and...

    ARIA and 7800GTX/X1800XL/X1800XT room?

    Anyone have a newer card in an ARIA? How much room do you have length-wise? What about any of the other cases, since they are probably similar lengths. Looking at moving to the Biostar TForce, but for that I have to find a single slot card. I don't want to downgrade and the 7800GT has no fan...

    Albatron K8SLI - missed opportunity?

    Doh! So close... :( Not that I really care, but maybe if enough people suggest they shave off that middle PCI-E x1 slot, you might get that reality.

    Using a Radeon Xpress motherboard & having lockups with your nVidia card?

    Get your tweaked Jetway AGDMS & ECS RS480-M bioses here!

    Thanks to Borg Number One, I finally snagged a version of modbin that works and thought I would share the wealth. These bioses optimize the defaults for most settings, hide a few utterly useless options (video mode=AGP or config for 2 serial ports??), and enable some of the hidden options...
