    Are Klipsch ProMedia amps prone to failure?

    the 2.1's were nowhere near the quality of the 5.1's, especially sound wise. On that note, my 5.1 non Ultras have lasted me for going on 9 years now, and the only issue was what i posted a few posts back, very recently. I couldn't be happier with them.... except if they had more inputs ;-)

    Are Klipsch ProMedia amps prone to failure?

    lucky for me, none of my components were dead. I simply wiggled the relays, made sure the fuse was snapped in correctly, and moved many capacitors and resistors that were touching other components so they would cool better, and amazingly the sound came back in full. @raptor, would you be...

    AM2 cpu rocks in its socket

    did you check for bent pins on the cpu? If you find any, VERY carefully use a tiny screwdriver or something to straighten it out a bit, and see if you can get it into the socket.

    Guinness Store - 15% off

    seems like a good deal for exclusive items, but I find that much of the more common items are cheaper elsewhere... why do the manufacturers always try to screw us :-p I love guinness, cheers and thanks for the heads up!

    Best Router +)

    If you're looking for cheap, a Buffalo WHR-125 or WHR-G54 are great with DD-WRT firmware... But, if you really want an upgrade, Get the Linksys WRT-350N. Its wireless N (good range), runs DD-WRT, and is a gigabit switch, so all around you have a nice upgrade.

    OEM Conroe based Celeron 420 for $40

    AMD Athlon 3400+ 939 $15 / $4.60 S&H

    Thats a pretty sweet deal. for buyers: keep in mind we don't know if these are Newcastle or Venice core. Newcastle is 89w, has the old memory controller which locks RAM at pc2700 if all 4 dimm's are used. Venice is 67w, has the improved memory controller, and overclocks better. :)

    the patriot seem to have better timings at ddr2 800, and is rumored to be Micron D9, which would make it a better deal I believe.

    Is there a way to enable Dolby Digital on my Asus A8N5X or is it just a gimmick?

    update the drivers, if the sound is still not to your liking, invest in a sound card that you can carry form system to system when you upgrade. Not only will it sound far superior to on-board sound, but having a dedicated sound processor will put less load on the cpu and slightly increase...

    Best Replacement Socket 478 Motherboard?

    the Asus P4C-800 is one of the best boards ever made, IMO, but very hard to find nowadays (875 chipset). My 'extreme gamer'/ Graphic Desinger friend is still running that in one of his systems i built with a P4 3.4 EE since they are dirt cheap now, and switches between that and his AMD64 system...

    [Warm] Razer Pro|Tone m100 earphones WOOT

    Woot has 2 pairs of Razer Pro|Tone m100 in-ear headphones for $29.99 + 5= $34.99. These retail for around that price for 1 pair, so this is pretty much a BOGO. All the reviews I read rated these very highly for the price, one ever claimed they matched and slightly bested the Sennheiser...

    Get it while it's HOT! Seagate 500 gig SATA

    the 7200.10 has perpendicular recording technology, which results in a much lower (nearly half) seek time. If you plan to use the drive as the primary hard drive, I would recommend a 7200.10 as they are noticeably faster. If the drive is just for storage, it really wont matter much unless you...

    I switched my family router to a Moto SB 5100 years back, and it was an astronomical jump from the ISP provided modem (probably because it was a jump from DOCSIS 1.1 to 2.0). My current ISP (cablevision) supplied us with a Moto SB5150? I think-- the current one on the site says SB5120, but...

    MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum max mem voltage?

    MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum max mem voltage?

    A8N SLI only detecting 256MB RAM

    I am not sure if there were high temperatures in the chipset prior to the heatsink swap, but there were no high temps after.
