    Best overall case fan?

    Its not exactly an oxymoron, different fans are constructed differently with different materials, different shaped blades, different overall quality. This will make some fans have a higher ratio between sound and air flow.

    Computer turns itself on

    It could be a bad PSU its a brand new Ultra X2 and I don't remember noticing the problem before. I just didn't think it could cause it to turn on, Once again all wake options are disabled and no input devices are touched when it turns on.

    Computer turns itself on

    I have sat and watched the thing turn on, nothing is doing anything. Right now i'm flipping the switch on the back of the PSU. I've emailed ECS about it, I don't know if they will reply. I've played with the actuall switch with no luck.

    FEAR is the hottest game out there!

    I was also really disappointed in FEAR, the graphics didn't hit me as amazing, and the game play wasn't fun at all, I'll stick to my HL2 and Oblivion.

    Computer turns itself on

    thats the first thing I checked, There is no one else here and the Ghostbusters don't have a branch in Canada. Its the weirdest problem, I've also tried disconnecting the LAN and disconnecting to make sure the power switch wasn't bad. I'm thinking maybe a trojan or some sort of virus, but I...

    LOL! this is what u get when im board

    Yea, my understanding is now the original fan will do next to nothing and the extra fan is going to force air backwards through it rendering it useless.

    Computer turns itself on

    The only help I could find googling this was to change the BIOS power options to not boot on call or ring. All of the booting options are disabled in power management in the BIOS. I can't really think of what else is happening. All I know is when I turn off my computer, when I come back it is...

    "Randomly" shuts off...

    Well, all of your other temps seem normal, it is normal for your PSU fan to be hotter than the back exit, especially under load. I've had PSU's die many times on me and this is always how I knew it was time for them to go. The only weird occurrence I've ever had was once the back power switch on...

    "Randomly" shuts off...

    Sounds like a PSU problem to me, check all the outputs to confirm if it is dying otherwise try changing it and see if you have the problem anymore.

    ATI Heatproblems

    As long as the GPU doesn't exceed 95 degrees its fine. They're designed to withstand up to 100 degrees. Most cards reach around 65-75 degrees under load. The fact that its restarting is still a problem though.

    Keeping pc on all the time.

    If my computer isn't downloading a large file overnight or something its always off. Why would you leave it on just for no reason, its a huge waste and bad for the environment.

    Hyundai L90D+ burn-in?

    One of my friends had a similar issue, he downloaded 'dead pixel buddy' and left the screen blank white for a few hours and it got rid of his discoloration. Don't know if its the good way to do it, maybe someone can confirm or disprove this method.

    Damage the CPU by dropping it?

    Where is your reasoning that a bad CPU will "take out" any other hardware, use logic, it simply won't work if its broken.

    are these symptoms of a fried video card?

    From my experience it sounds like your card overheated, with ATI it gives you the same warning and the same thing happens with 'VPU recover' if you have another card or can borrow one i'd swap it and see if it fixes your problem, then you'll know.

    Now that abandonware is legal in the USA...

    I don't think it is completely legal, its really the fact that the company isn't going to do anything about a product they don't sell or make anymore being distributed illegally.

    Now that abandonware is legal in the USA...

    This isn't going to change anything, It just means that you can download some of your favorite games from the 80's and early 90's and not be breaking the law. Really it just means you can download and distribute the game after the company that made it decides to abandon it, meaning not for sale...
