    Suggestions and comments pls. Looking for ideas for next revision. Been rocking the same case for 3 years, on my forth build.

    New case configuration query

    I have been seeing some cases lately with the motherboard aligned in a peculiar way. The graphic card and motherboard connections facing the top of the case. Doesn't this require a top compartment to route cables through? Anyway just wanted to hear some peoples opinion of this approach.

    Favourite CPU overclocks

    After reading through gimpy04's thread focusing on cpu progression, i realized i couldn't remember all the chips I had run on. Instead only the cream of the crop came to mind. No doubt we have all delt with cpus that have underperfomed, but when you are in the possesion of a cpu from a...

    crossfired 1950xtxs = dissapointment

    I have been running these cards for little over 8 months and have been very happy with the results. The addition of a second card bumped my 3dmark06 score 5k from around 7k to 13k. Most of the games I have been playing showed major improvements in both frame rates and image quality thanks to the...

    Looking to pull the trigger on a second x1950 xtx . Found one for 450 cdn, not bad. You guys think they will drop further? I notice that the x1900 xtxs havent really come down that much.

    Need advice about silent PSU

    Looking for a reliable psu capable of handling my current rig + an additional x1950 xtx (CF). My current choice has performed well, its just a little to loud for the bedroom that the computer is in. Shoulda researched more i guess :p , figured a 120mm fan would be a quiet one. Thx.
