    Trouble is ARC, Samsung Smart TV and Yamaha Receiver

    felt

    How does felt do with dampening sound/vibrations? I'm building a PC case out of some kind of wood and felt seems like the perfect way to mount the HDDs and drives (I was going to use slide in rails with felt on the surfaces of the wood that would be touching the drives). I also thought about...

    Process nodes

    What nodes are motherboards built at? I would assume 45nm since we've been there for so long. How long until we start to see boards built on 32nm? I would hope by the time Sandy bridge is out? What are the pros/cons for moving down a process node? Obviously less silicon used, but with...

    fan wire modding and other questions

    Starting to put together some of the pieces of my new build and I had some concerns and questions regarding fans and fan controllers. I'll probably be using the Aerocool Touch 2000 because it's the best touch controller out there right now. The only thing kind of shitty is it's 6w max per...

    fast-forwarding video

    Nanometers and SSDs

    Does anybody know an ETA on Indilinx drives manufactured with 34nm flash chips? Intel drives decreased in cost 27%, and I would expect the same or probably more from Indilinx drives. That would bring 30GB vertex to $100, 60GB to $165, and the 120GB to $265. I've also read that 2Xnm flash...
