    DNS opinion requested

    This is surprising, according to namebench, Comcast has the fastest DNS. Due to reliability, I think I'll stick with openDNS because I don't want to go through another week of slow internet if Comcast's DNS was the cause. Uploaded with

    Strange, I was in the Alpha trial and EA emailed me with an "offer I cannot refuse." Basically, I got a free game (Dead Space 2), beta access in September, BF f2p item and Karkand map. The deal was live for only 3 days.

    I’m pissed off. I built a new computer that I thought would be quiet. When I’m using the computer lightly, the computer is quiet. As soon as I start playing a game, the computer sounds like a rocket. Come to find out, it is my weak power supply that is causing the problem. When I was buying...

    El Cheapo Fan controller...

    Can you run a testing program like prime 95 or Intel Burn test (yes, it will work with AMD) and tell me how loud your computer sounds when the pwm fans kick up the RPMS?

    El Cheapo Fan controller...

    Well the option is there if you want to use it. The idea use for turning off fans is probably when your not in an intensive application.

    El Cheapo Fan controller...

    So, I was doing some research on a 200mm fan for my HAF 922 and I realized that a side panel fan would be a intake fan which would require a fan filter. I coudln't find a decent fan filter for a 200mm fan but there are plenty for 120mm fan. I decided to purchase a fan filter...

    I ordered the cooler master 212+. Although I want the yate loon to use with this cooler, I realized that they don't PWM functionality. As an alternative, I could use the GELID FN-PX12-15 but they are out of stock @ newegg and amazon only sell them in bulks. Are there any other quiet PWM...

    I think I'll take your advice and go with the CM 212+. I'll so some further research on that cooler and see what fans I can replace it with. I looked at the yate loon fan. The price is really cheap which is always nice. I'll check out alternative fans such as Scythe Gentle Typhoon and see...

    I understand that for an AMD build, thats theres a huge advantage towards performance over cost. If I were to step up to a 1366 i7 930 build, I will at least spend around $200.00 dollars more assuming that I keep the other parts the same. I much rather save money while building a balanced...
