    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Did anyone ever figure out what thumb screws work for the side cover of this case? I remember seeing a picture with thumb screws and asking the person where they got them, but I either never got a response, or didn't check this thread enough.

    PC version of Ikaruga please! The only reason I haven't sold my Xbox 360 by now is because of the XBLA version of Ikaruga.

    A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 60GB SSD Benchmark

    Well, according to the OCZ guide, I have trim enabled. Is there a better way to enable/check the status of TRIM? AS SSD says I'm using the msahci driver, which is the Microsoft driver if I recall correctly.

    A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 60GB SSD Benchmark

    I did 1 100MB this time since that's what you did. Also not sure how much my drive being filled and yours being empty affects the benchmarks.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Yes, please post a link! I need thumb screws for this case! It would be such a nightmare to disassemble this case at a LAN party with the tiny sidepanel screws that it comes with. (Hopefully I wouldn't have to disassemble at a LAN, but you never know. Cables come loose during transportation...

    [H] Flickr Group! and post your Flickr link here Thread Currently I only have pictures from one day over the summer that I took with a borrowed Rebel XSi. I'll be buying a 60D shortly though, so expect to see some more added :)

    A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 60GB SSD Benchmark

    Not sure. My P5Q Pro Turbo apparently has "5+2" Sata 3GB/s ports. I'm thinking the "+2" might be 1.5GB/s ports. I'm going to try a different port in a little while. My bad. I posted that as soon as I woke up this morning. I meant to say that my rig is a known good computer, as it worked fine...

    A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 60GB SSD Benchmark

    Well, my rig is a known good SSD. Worked fine with the HDD, and still is working fine other than the SSD being slow. and I don't know anyone else who owns an SSD. but the SSD is plugged into SATA Port 6 on my P5Q Pro Turbo. Would that make a difference? Should I rearrange and make sure it's...

    A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 60GB SSD Benchmark

    My results don't look nearly as good as yours. I wonder if I did something wrong setting it up? I installed Windows on it today in AHCI mode...I'm not sure what else is necessary. It's the same drive though, so I don't know why my numbers are so low.

    Lian Li A04 - New MicroATX case

    Why couldn't they just make this one full ATX? It'd only have to be a tiny bit bigger. Then it would be like a PC-A05N, only better due to having more than three 3.5" bays. I'll stick with my V354 for mATX.

    How much RAM do we need?

    I don't see a need for any more than 4GB of ram (for a normal desktop/gaming system) at this point in time.

    Microsoft Explains XBL Price Hike

    They're charging us more because they're giving us the chance to pay them for DLC before anybody else. That makes absolutely no sense. On a side-note, god, I hate DLC. I will never pay for maps. Ever.

    How The RIAA Took My Vintage Mustang

    Poor guy. I can't believe this is still happening to people. Either settle with us for a a few thousand dollars, or spend hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting us? That's completely unfair. Haha, that is true, people would.

    Q6600 Nowadays

    Is the Q6600 a great chip? Yes. Do I love my Q6600? Yes. Would I recommend going from an E8400 to a Q6600 for $100? No, I'd say save your money for an i5/i7 setup. Your E8400 should run Counter-Strike Source just fine.

    Best CPU's of all time?

    It's hard to define "best", but I'm particularly fond of the Intel E2140. I had one that I overclocked all the way up to 3.4GHz. It was a nice chip to hold me over until I could afford my Q6600, which is another great processor. It was affordable (for a quad core at the time) and was also a...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Jeeze, that's an expensive mobo for somebody on a budget. but yes, looking at pics on Newegg, I would say the U9B will fit. It looks like there's a decent amount of space between those heatsinks and the CPU socket, and the U9B is smaller than you think once you see it in person. Anyway, I've...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    This Noctua NH-U9B SE2 is very quiet. Is it out of your price range or something? For an extra $30 you get great mounting hardware, and 2 very quiet fans. I'm sure anyone who has used a Noctua fan will tell you Noctua fans are pretty much completely silent. I can barely hear my rig, despite that...

    Is Single Monitor Gaming Dead?

    I have an Eyefinity setup, but don't actually use it very much. The only games I like using it for are racing games (pretty much any of them. NFS: Shift particularly, and I'll probably pick up F1 2010 soon), and H.A.W.X. Other than that, I'm perfectly happy playing RTS and FPS games on a single...

    Starcraft II

    Speaking of Funday Monday, I was trying this week's challenge (play as Terran and don't use Marines, Marauders, or Tanks), and boy was it rough. Against Protoss they just scout me and see that I have no Marines so they Void Rays, which is like an instant loss. You pretty much NEED Vikings if you...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Yeah I won't be going i7 for this rig, but I'm sure it will be fine as all Micro-ATX boards should be around the same size. I'll be using a Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2 board with a SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze PSU. Thanks for the help :) UPS should be swinging by with the case any time now! :)
