Thank you Paul for your good PSU reviews over these years. You really upped the game over what could be found elsewhere. I'll miss that for sure!!
Btw, I bought the XFX Black Edition 850W after your review nearly 10 years ago (and gold award) and it's still working perfectly!
My first and only ASUS motherboard I ever had was a KT133A with a Duron on it and a water cooled peltier. That board has always been unstable. Maybe a FREE new one would convince me of trying them again. ;)
Hi all, I'm looking to buy my first notebook ever and don't really know which brand/model I can trust. It's not really as easy as picking pieces from different manufacturer and put them all together.
What I want is a Core i7 CPU, a GPU that can handle games (ATI or NVIDIA), at least 4GB of...
1. Have you ever had a hard drive fail on you?

First thing first, here is the system spec:
P4 3.0E (SL79L) - WC
Gigabyte GA 8i875 Ultra
OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Rev 2 (2x512MB, TCCD)
600W Power supply

One day, I was at work and got back home to see my water pump failed and my poor little Duron 750 was running at 96C. My roomate told me he was hearing the alarm for like 3-4h and couldn't do anything since my door was locked!! ;) This stupid ASUS board never shutted down the PC (and it was...
