    Voltage control PWM fans. Downsides?

    I'm going to be purchasing a set of 140mm noctua fans soon and they provide a pwm model and a standard model. On amazon the pwm model ends up being only a $1 more, but they are going to probably be voltage controlled by my motherboard as opposed to pwm (even though all of the headers are 4 pin)...

    Black Edition DeathAdder Users: Rough Texture Fix

    Re-painting aluminum?

    I just finished my SG02 mod (seen here: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1633940) but the only aluminum case I could get was white. I was able to get a black faceplate from silverstone, but I couldn't get a black, aluminum lid so it's currently white with a black faceplate. I called...

    Oh... so THAT's blurring (New VA Panel)

    I just picked up this beautiful BenQ LED BL2400PU monitor for around $280. It's a VA based panel, and I've done quite a bit of research on each panel before I bought so I knew what I was getting into. I love it. I'm coming from a 32" IPS based TV that I had been using and I can automatically...

    Firefox 4+: Gap For Tabs on Top

    Hi all, I was in a discussion another forum talking about chrome versus firefox and I got to thinking. I prefer Firefox over Chrome but there are a couple of things I can't stand about the current firefox. One of them was that, while having tabs on top frees up a lot of screen real estate, it's...

    Hi all, I'm about to start a mod on a SG02 and, in an effort to make it as clean as possible, need an internal extension cord for the PSU. However, I'd like one that has the plastic "wings" on the side so that I may attach it to the case. It looks like this...
