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.
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.
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...
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 :)
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...
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...

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! :)
Just pulled the trigger on one of these tonight. I'll definitely post pictures when I get everything in it. As for my heatsink I'll be using a stock Intel cooler for now, but I'm thinking about going with a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 later. Do you guys think that would work well in this case?
Yeah, they canceled mine too. I pre-ordered for full price in June. Oh well, no big deal for me, all I have to do is re-order. Oh, and I'll sign up for Reward Zone before I do order this time, so I get that $10.
I'm really sorry for you OP, it sucks that you had used BCB for 20% off, and BCB...
