    Thermalright Shaman + 6970... anyone try it yet?

    The mosfet sinks fit fine for me, I just cleaned each one thoroughly with Isopropyl alcohol and stuck it on after they dried. I'll take it out in a few days to see if they're still there.. but looks good so far! I did not buy the Thermalright VRM cooler in addition though.

    Thermalright Shaman + 6970... anyone try it yet?

    I installed the Shaman last night - HUGE improvement overall already! The loudest thing in my case now is a set of Nexus 120mm "Real Silent" fans to give you a reference. I'm running ~29C idle and ~45C under load after an hour of Battlefield BC2. This being compared to the 80-90C I was...

    Configure QoS for gaming on DD-WRT?

    Hi, I have a WRT 54G running DD-WRT for my home network hosting a 10MB cable connection. I use this connection for downloading frequently, but I always throttle my speed to the neighborhood of 500kB/s to prevent ruining my roommate's online gaming experience. However, it seems that for some...

    HTPC w/ NAS

    The point of the workstation is to keep my media centralized. I've got almost 3TB of video files on that system that I'd love to play on the HDTV. Would I basically have to copy the files over every time I wanted to play something? There's no way to efficiently stream 1080p over the network?

    HTPC w/ NAS

    Currently, I have a Q6600 with 4GB of DDR2 and an 8800GTS as a workstation and have recently acquired a large 1080p LCD. Would it be possible to build a cheap HTPC and leave the decoding to the workstation? 1080p is a must. I'm trying to build an HTPC as cheaply as possible for 1080p and...

    Sharing audio/video with PS3?

    Thanks for the post! I've found several cheap HDMI switches around $40-$50, but I don't quite see how the audio is shared since most only have HDMI ports.

    Sharing audio/video with PS3?

    Currently, I have a 20" 2005FPW monitor which would be my main display until I get a HDTV in the Fall. I'd like to have some kind of KVM to swap between my computer and a 60GB PS3 without having to move any cables around, how can I accomplish this process? The rest of my system is in...

    Erasing metadata on a raid array?

    I'm just curious, if I erase the metadata on my Raid 5 Array, is it possible to restore the data within intact? I'm assuming the usage of some third party tools is necessary. In order to create a new array using the same drives, I would have to initialize the drives, ie: formatting them...

    Help - Network boot for a variety of applications?

    Currently, I'm running a PXE boot server for the various distributions of Linux that I test, but a large majority of the applications we receive are large ISO files, is there a simple way to boot ISOs via the network? I'm looking for something similar to PXE/RIS in that, you'd boot to the...

    Need cheap car amp for AUX -> Nano

    As the title implies, I am looking for a cheap car amp that could plug into a 12v power outlet. I'm rather disappointed with the quality of my Nano when compared to CDs/Radio even and am hoping this would alleviate the issue. Any ideas? Recommendations? Thanks in advance! :)

    Need help with Ultra 120 Extreme install!

    I bought this fan for it and I can't see to get it mounted. I only have one hole in the top right hand corner, no other way to seem to mount it, please don't tell me I bought the wrong fan. :( There aren't any holes on the interior of the fan to connect the fan to the crappy paperclip mounts...

    Jerker/Frederik replacement?

    I desperately need a large, yet sturdy desk for my room, something along the lines of the Jerker/Frederik. Nothing too fancy, but I live in NC and there are not any nearby Ikea. Would actually cost more to ship the desk here than the desk costs...and I've been rather disappointed with the...

    Online bill payment solution for rent?

    They're all willing to pay with debit cards, but I will check with our banks to see if we can directly transfer funds. We do not have the same one, in fact i'm sure we have 3-4 different banks in use.

    Online bill payment solution for rent?

    I will be moving in to a house this coming weekend and will be responsible for collecting the rent of my 3 roommates. I would prefer to not deal with cash and have a more automated payment system setup. Does anyone know if something like this exists? I'm assuming I could use paypal at the...

    Would like recommendations for fun 3-4 player games (coop or otherwise)

    I love System Shock and I've gotten bored of all of the great Quake/Doom co-op play, what else is out there? Waiting patiently on Sven Coop for Half Life 2 still and I've overplayed Serious Sam.. I'd prefer a shooter, but anything would be nice.

    Interesting job predicament..

    Yes, I am afraid I would not be able to make the same kind of friendships or work in the same environment, but for the sake of advancing my knowledge, I think I'm going to jump ship. It's a great opportunity to work with things I've never touched, rather than supporting the same old web apps...

    Apartment wiring?

    Think a runway is necessary? This is semi-shortterm with the lease expiring in a few months and us getting a larger apartment. Seems like a lot of work for making it look nice, doubt most of them care.

    Apartment wiring?

    I'm moving in to an apartment this afternoon and need to think about wiring.. it's on the second floor so I doubt I can go under the floors with Cat5, so a runway or wireless are the only options. I game a lot, would wireless interfere with the connection much? I'm really not looking forward...

    I need to backup roughly 10GB from a SATA harddrive and cannot get into Windows on this system. I have tried several methods of repair and am about to give up on it. How could I possibly backup this harddrive when I do not have a SATA adapter for my external drive? Is there a mini Linux OS I...

    Microsoft OneCare Comes In Last In Antivirus Test

    Just so you know, this is the very first time in something like 2 years that NOD32 has not received an Advanced+ rating and it was very close to re-achieving it this time. Also, the above linked PC World review is pretty old.. 3 years almost. Polymorphic viruses are very rarely found, which is...

    Virus scan microsoft word?

    If you're running NOD32, you can disable DMON and that would remove this afaik. You would still have AMON protection.

    No "repair" option when running XP setup.

    Prompt repair is enabled by default in setup, so this is not an option. For the record, I have created several slipstreamed OS discs before and the problem still exists.
