    So I installed my new Corsair H50 tonight...

    Upgraded from a Xigmatek Dark Knight. Load temps in OCCT Large Data Sets were 53-58c depending on room temp, sometimes as high as 63. H50 dropped it down to 45c with 2 tricools in push-pull on high and 48c on medium. This is with a Phenom II 920 @ 3500 1.425v. Very, very highly recommend this...

    Boot Camp and 10.4.7

    Is there a way to dual boot with 10.4.7 yet? My buddy just got his iMac the other day (the same day 10.4.7 was sent out) with high hopes of dual booting windows to play some games but I guess its only compatible with 10.4.6. Will there be an update anytime soon or are there other means?

    Refurbed 2005FPW's

    Looking into buying myself a 2005FPW as a birthday present. It comes out to about 478 to my door for a refurbished one from Dell Outlet, or 503 for a brand new one through dell home, after coupons. Are the refurbs bad?
