    My First Mod: Adding CCFLs to the TT Tsunami Front Door

    I'll let the pics speak for themselves. This is the first time I have done anything like this, but I am fairly satisfied with the result. The only thing that bothers me is the gap in lighting between the two 4" CCFLs on the top any ideas how to fix that without adding more lights? I ground...

    Comp tries to reboot after waking from screensaver

    This is an odd problem and I'm not sure if it is hardware or software related. When I wake up from my screensaver (any screensaver, not just the one I am using now), the 'Shut Down Windows' dialog pops up with 'Restart' in the drop down menu box. Windows then proceeds to close and open this...

    BSOD playing Halo...caused by nv4_disp.dll

    So, after playing Halo for about 5 minutes I get a BSOD and, obviously, the game locks up. I am running an XFX GeForce 6600GT with no overclocking or any tweaks. I have heard that this card has a problem with the HSF coming loose and breaking the theermal bond,leading to overheats. Not sure...

    Black bands on NVidia Quadro

    I just started using this old computer laying around and when I hooked it up, I saw the strangest thing. Anywhere there are dark colors on the screen, a darkened band goes across the screen. Needless to say, this is very irritating. I tried updating drivers to 67.22 from 61 something, but...

    OK, so the molex and FDD power connectors on the motherboard...do I have to plug the power supply into them or are they to power devices (like fans) that have these connectors. Sorry for the noob question, but the manual was of no assistance...

    So I am looking to buy 1GB of Corsair TwinX PC3200 DDR400 RAM, however I just checked DFI's compatibility chart for the nf4 Ultra-D motherboard (link ) and only the XMS PC3500 and above are listed as recommended. Is there anything wrong with using the PC3200 stuff? I'm quite the noob at...

    CCFL humming?

    So I just bought my first CCFLs (Sunbeams in Logisys packaging) and I'm a little worried. One of the CCFLs hums when it is on. It's not the inverter, it's the light itself. Is this a problem? Should I RMA it? The noise really isn't an issue, it's very soft, but I'm afraid the light is bad...

    AeroCool 21-In-1 Cool Panel - Anyone have one?

    I saw this on Xoxide and it looks pretty sweet. I couldn't find any reviews online, but has anyone here purchased one? What do you think? I was looking at getting the Tt Hardcano 13, but this model seems more useful. Sorry if this is the wrong forum for posting this... Here's a link...

    So, I'm looking to pick up a XFX 6600GT, which I can get for ~$180, about $20 cheaper than the Leadtek(which would be my second option). Does anyone out there have an XFX 6600 and can you share your experiences with it for me? Anandtech said that it was loud and the cooling solution was a...
