    Anyone else using Calyx Institute for 4G/5G access?

    I just got my mifi today and got it setup on the right APN. Are there any tips or tricks I should know about either about mods for the inseego m2000 or best practices for increasing range or performance? I'm considering using this as a full replacement for home and mobile internet considering...

    Got my free upgrade.

    My moving company damaged my OG Predator X34. Since it was cheaper to replace it with the X34 GSbmiipphuzx they did that. So now I have over under X34s and my LG 32GK850F-B 32" to flank them.

    Hand lapped my 5950x

    I still have to clean it up a little bit but I'm really happy with the visual result. I got a small sheet of glass from Lowe's and used 3m wet/dry sand paper from 400 to 1500 grit with a bit of water. It took about 3 hours total while watching twitch. I'll report pack once I get this under...

    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Bios 3003 is amazing.

    I just whacked 3003 over-top of the last released bios and holy shit is it amazing. I loaded optimized defaults, turned on PBO (including the new FMax setting), slapped in 3800/1900 with 16-16-16-16-32-48-300 1T with 1.5v for memory. No other changes at all. It booted, so I thought "that's...

    Ivy Bridge TDP of 95W instead of the promised 77W ... Well, all the pieces seem to be falling into place confirming the high heat issues related to the die shrink and tri-gates. This is mildly disappointing.

    "Realistic" date to be able to buy IB (and other ?'s)

    So, I'm REALLY itching to pull the trigger on a new build. As you can see in my sig, its about time. We all know April 29 is the target release date for the IB/Z77 combo. My question is this: Will it be realistic or even possible to obtain one near release day? I've got my case, PSU, fans...

    8800GTS and Hardware Masks ...

    I recently upgraded to an 8800gts SLI setup from a 6800LE. With my 6800 I was able to unlock the hardware masked VS and PPs. I installed the nVstrap driver with rivatuner and attempted to unlock the masks, but they still show disabled and there is no improvement in games or 3Dmark. I do have...

    8800gts SLI space questions ...

    OK folks, time to build a new PC. I think I am going to need to get a new case to cram in some 8800gts cards. Right now I have a Lian Li PC65. From what I have heard, space can be an issue due to the drive cages. Can anyone confirm this? Also, the only cases listed on the sli zone...
