    Motherboard for Intel Xeon E3-1230 v5

    How often do you replace thermal compound?

    If you do at all? My old GTX 560Ti was hitting 57C at idle!! So I decided to take off the heatsink and replace the thermal compound.

    In Store Pick Up Only - God I'm so sick of hearing those deals

    Because they are almost always from Fry's and Microcenter and none are near me. Someone should provide a service for pickup and shipment for a small fee. Damnit!

    Question: Can you replace panels yourself?

    With the Dell "Panel Lottery" and other companies switching out panels for cheaper ones, it makes me wonder something. If for example you owned a 24" TN screen and wanted to replace it with a better panel (MVA/PVA/IPS), could you just swap it out? How hard would that be? I've never opened a...
