Here's a more detailed story of it. http://www.jsonline.com/news/39091967.html
There were also bomb threats on the school caused by him.
Hits me more a little at home with me since I actually went to high school there. Needless to say none of that occurred while I was there.
Oh no, I'm not really worried about it. How did you log onto mwave to view your invoice? Is it just linked to your e-mail account? I guess I'm a little confused since my mwave email account is different that the one I used on ebay, and it is not showing up on there.
Picked up an MSI card too. Was looking for a good deal and 3 years is more than enough of a warranty period for me. Got the cash back notice, now just have to wait out the 59 days. Hopefully the MIR will come in, but still a really good deal without it.
Sorry, don't really know much about long term over voltage problems (then again I really haven't looked into it either). Personally, I've never experienced any with a processor I've owned (knock on wood).
In a generally sense, yes overclocking and volting your CPU will eventually cause for...
I guess I should really revise my statement, since I normally run my fans at only half speed. At full speed I'm in the low to mid 30s at idle, and low 50s at full load. I also went back and looked at all my OC settings, and I'm actually running 1.63 V on the CPU. With all the newer Q6600...
Not really. Temperatures are at 40 C idle, and about mid 50s under load. I have yet to really kill a processor by over volting it too much while it's under water. If it does eventually die in the future, i'm sure I can pick up a cheap replacement for it anyways.
I got an G0 L8 at the beginning of summer. I was able to get it to 3.6 GHz on an abit IX38, but it took about 1.69 v to get there. I decided that the power and heat wasn't really worth it, so right now I have it at a rock solid 3.5 GHz with 1.61 v. Water cooling definitely required.
I actually work part-time for a fedex ground facility here in Madison, WI, and it most likely was just not scanned into the system. Missed scans themselves are actually pretty common since the loaders themselves are responsible for the scanning, and not the actual sorters. Generally everyone...
Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Elite Beat Agents
Final Fantasy III
Yoshi's Island DS
Haven't played any of the others that are on that list, but Lunar Knights is up next after I finish up Advance Wars.
I always like how the RIAA all of a sudden decided to go after students how don't have money to fight back. Since they can't win in court they decide to go after those who can't afford to go to court in the first place.
I'm in the same boat as speedrat, will probably give it a go when I have some more free time this summer. Nice to know that it isn't as difficult as I previously perceived it to be. Thanks for the nice write-up.
I got on this deal earlier this month and was able to get my card no problem. It took about a day for me to receive the confirmation too. Another member called fry's support and was told that their computer system has just been slow lately, so no worries.
Card is great by the way, I've...
I was able to play around a little bit last night with my card. I went from an Audigy 1 to the X-Fi and I could easily tell a difference in sound quality just listening to MP3s; each song was much richer and cleaner. Unfortunately, I didn't have any recent games installed on my machine to try.
No problem on the hosting. Maybe you could add the link to your first post.
Yea, I've been waiting a while for my confirmation e-mail too. I guess I'm a little use to the same second newegg confirmations.
