    Mobo & Gfx fried by faulty PSU?!

    I bought a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad about a year ago. Just this past thursday, it went *poof* while I was out. I came home to a very quiet living room, my computer had shut down while I was gone. I tried turning it back on and while it did power up, the motherboard was giving me a...

    Mobo that supports three PCI-E video cards?

    Right now I run a pair of 7800GTX cards non-SLI, with one card driving my Dell 2407WFP and the other card driving two Dell 2005FPW's. In the near future I want to run a pair of 8800GTX cards in SLI driving my main screen and a single 7800GTX driving the other two. Is there a mobo out there that...

    Hard-side laptop case that can hold a portable printer too?

    My uncle is looking to take the plunge into mobile computing so he can use some mapping software designed for his profession (truck driver), and he wants to get a hard-side case that can protect his gear. The catch is that he needs a case big enough to fit a portable printer (such as this or...

    Opteron 165 is 45C at idle, recommend me a new HSF!

    My stock Opteron 165 is 45C at idle and up to 61C under load. This is totally unacceptable. Temps have slowly been rising over time, but the weather here (and my lack of air conditioning) are likely causing that. I currently have the Scythe FCS-50 and it was doing the job (less than 55c under...

    Hard Drive cooling?

    Right now I use a Zalman ZM-2HC2 heatpipe cooler on both of my hard drives (both Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 250GB SATA drives) I additionally have some drive bay coolers consisting of 3 40mm fans blowing over these drives. Do you think this is excessive...or not? I ask because I'm running into...

    Arctic Cooling Accelero X1??

    I've never installed an aftermarket GPU cooling solution, always sticking with stock. But I've noticed that of my two XFX 7800GTX cards, the one closer to my CPU runs about 8 degrees celsius hotter! I'm seeing core temps of 60C on the lower card and 68C on the card near the cpu when at full...

    Is there a way to only display posts in a thread made by a certain user?

    Is there a way to only display posts in a thread made by a certain user? For example, in casemod threads, show only posts made by the person starting the thread? I mainly want this functionality so I can look at the awesome desk build-out done by jen4950 (...

    PS suggestion for Opteron 165 system with 7800 GTX?

    I have an Aspire ATX-AS520W which I got from newegg but I've been reading up on it and it turns out that it doesn't conform to the ATX spec and I'm pretty hesitant to use it now. No idea what to do with it :confused:, but that's kind of beside the point. (Anyone want it? $40+shipping and it's...

    PCI Express SLI, dual x8 vs dual x16?

    So there are PCI Express boards out there which have two PCI Express x16 slots on them, but if you use them both with cards in SLI configuration, they will only be x8 each. There are other boards which have x16 capability per each slot and in SLI configuration, they maintain their x16 speed...

    PCI Express card @ $200 or less -- any suggestions?

    I'm not as much a gamer as I used to be, but I still enjoy my games. I've been playing Age of Empires III lately, as well as EVE Online. I also occasionally play Guild Wars. I used to play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory several times a week but I only hit up that addiction about once a month these...

    Burn-in on my 2005FPW LCD!

    I just recently noticed that there is burn-in on my Dell 2005FPW. I thought it was a fantastic screen up until noticing this problem. I looked around the 'net for information on this and it isn't like phosphor burn-in on a CRT, in that it isn't always permanent. It's known as "image...

    Did you order a drive from Newegg? Was it DOA? I want to hear about it!

    I ordered a pair of 250GB Maxline III drives from Newegg which were packed incorrectly (in packing peanuts) and arrived DOA. I'm curious how many other people out there have ordered drives from Newegg which were packaged incorrectly (against manufacturer specified instructions) and arrived DOA...

    Both my Maxtor Maxline III 250GB drives are DOA! Anyone else??

    Backstory: I had picked up some Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 drives a while ago and I am extremely pleased with them. However, after buying the DiamondMax drives I found out that they weren't rated for 24H operation, while the MaxLine II and MaxLine III series drives are rated for 24/7 operation...

    SFF cube style with a handle for less than $250?

    I'm in the market for a SFF that looks visually cubic like the smaller Shuttle cases, but I want a built-in carrying handle. I know the Asus S-Presso has a built-in handle, but I was hoping for something a little more square and in the $200-$250 range. I do not want to add an external carrying...
