    When do you estimate that the 10600K and KF variantes will become readily available?

    I'm sitting here growing old waiting.. finished build waiting for the 10600kf to show it's face.

    HP Proliant Microserver - Missing Key

    Best wireless audio streamer for the price?

    That might be a decent option, although it'd be nice to have something that had RCA outputs. Thanks for the link.

    Best wireless audio streamer for the price?

    I've had a wireless streamer (Logitech bluetooth receiver) for several years. I'd like to upgrade to a unit that allows the music to be browsed/selected on the streamed end. I have a server that is always on that stores the music. I've been looking at several options, but found most to be...

    Klipsch Promedia 5.1's - Amp repair

    Most likely the bash chip in the sub. When they go bad they usually cause crackling/whining. You can take the sub apart and wiggle the bash chip which control's the subs (one does subs and one does sat) to see if the noise changes. Mine's having a problem from one of the chips, and I'm trying...

    Nvidia GTX 485 to be released this fall, 512 Shader Units enabled

    Eh someone jump in and correct me if I'm wrong, but the 6000 series, now 'Southern Islands', is due in late 2010. Most reports are saying "Autumn", September-October. I wouldn't imagine these having a problem with the competition. The 485 might release sooner though, which would give it some...

    Realspace Magellan L-Shaped Desk and Hutch $36 (Reg $380) + $25 Shipping @OfficeDepo

    did in-store payment.. made it a little difficult for them to ring up there. Had all the employees like wtf how'd you get it for that price. I tried to pick up a second as they had three in stock, and my roommate wanted one, but I had to ring it up on the web to get the discounts -- the coupon...

    I did in store pickup. Still came out to $38 after taxes. Had to be in stock, so I couldn't select my first choice (cherry). We'll see if I can grab it today. Thanks

    Dual Fermi (2x GTX 470)

    You can bold anything you want, but that doesn't change how irrelevant your original post was about GTX470SLI being faster than 5850CF. The 5970 isn't merely 5850CF and the GTX490 isn't GTX470SLI. The poster was pointing out that the GTX490 is likely to not outperform the 5970, or will result in...

    Dual Fermi (2x GTX 470)

    And what makes you think this card will run at the same speeds as 2xGTX470s, given that the 5970 doesn't run at the same speeds as 2x5870s? (And not given how ridiculous the heat envelope and power draw for this card will be)

    Hints of the GTX490, 375W TDP

    Isn't going to go much north of $700? Due to the presumed limited availability of such cards, the likelihood of failure due to heat/power envelope, I would be surprised to see such a card go under $899. 3D Vision surround is probably the only reason I could envision buying one of these -- a...

    'Hurt Locker' Sharers: Expect Docs Like This

    It is your internet connection. You pay for it, and therefore are/should be responsible for it. That's my opinion, but if you could prove it wasn't you, I'm sure you could get off for that type of thing.

    OCZ StealthXStream 700W, $35 w/ $25 rebate at newegg

    According to OCZ's response on the reviews, they've fixed the problem that was causing problems with many of these psus. But that's up to the buyer on whether you trust them or not.

    I killed my machine?

    This is what scares me. The 4-pin cpu power supply? Did you try taking out/unplugging the gfx card and booting without it? Also didn't look at that guy's link, but you can use the paperclip trick to test a psu. If you smell something burning, something's definitely fucked.

    Installed GTX 470 SLI - PSU now buzzing...

    Hopefully someone will chime in and actually answer the OP's question. From what I've read, the buzzing isn't necessarily going to indicate a quick demise of your hardware. Although if it were mine personally, I'd be RMA'ing the unit (once I confirmed it was in fact the psu), as it is not...

    That's what happens in xfire. I'm not sure if in SLI you can independently clock the gpus - someone else might chime in on that.

    How many video cards are failing?

    Personally, I think the first rev of the 8800gt's ran too hot with the single-slot/small fan combo. I think the failures were quite high, which is why they revised the design for a considerably larger fan.
