    3X GTX 480 Tri-Sli

    With all the people selling off their GTX 480s last month in a panic, I was able to snag a Evga GTX 480sc along with another DD waterblock. This bad boy was added to my exisiting 2X Evga 480sc Sli setup. Tri-Sli is bliss on my Dell U3011, and gaming at 2560X1600 is a sight to see. My initial...

    Ghostbuster The Video Game

    The wife just picked up Ghostbusters for the PC at Target. They have it clearanced at $9.88, YMMV. Have not opened it yet though. Is it ever worth it with all the issues it has, or should I take it back. Or give it hell for $10?

    Say Goodbye to the X2 and hello SLI

    Went ahead and sold my 4870 X2 and just ordered two BFG GTX 285 OC+ cards. The X2 is a good card, but just didn't seem like gaming was going as good as it could. I'm sure I'll see a performance boost with these 285s. Glad to be back at the NV camp and a member of Club Sli again. :)

    BFG GTX 295 in Stores

    Just left Fry's in Dallas (8pm) and they had 4 BFG GTX 295 cards on the shelf. Price is $529.99, item # 5811903. Did take note on how heavy it was, even compared to the X2 sitting next to it. Was tempted to get one, but couldn't justify it with my watercooled X2 working perfectly.

    Asus M2N-E and Corsair 6400C4

    I have the 6400C4, which is 4-4-4-12 at 2.1v and I want to use it in the Asus M2N-E, but in the bios the highest vcore allowed is 1.9. So can I run my 6400C4 run at 5-5-5-12 at 1.9v then? Or does this memory need to be at 2.1v no matter what timings. Thanks

    blow hole install

    Put a 80mm blow hole in case. Was pretty easy with the right tools. I used a 3 inch hole saw blade and masking tape is a must. I was going to use a dremel but very glad I didn't. The cutting took about 20 secs and then did a little sanding to smooth the edges. The masking tape prevented any...

    DD Black Ice Extreme 2 HELP!!!

    Just got the DD BIX 2 with the 1/2 fittings and 1/2 barbs. Problem is that the barbs are EXTREMELY tight to screw in. I cannot use just my fingers as it goes one with 1 full turn and then stops. I would have to use a wrench with some very hard turns to get it in. Is this normal??? Thanks
