Hey 3dfan, as my name suggest I own a scratched FW900. I wanted to ask for some of your direct thoughts on the car tint and how its been in the long term.
Namely curious about the films glare reduction, how good is it? Glare isn't a big concern for me as there is controlled lighting in my set up. That's just my one main question really, but I'd love to hear any thoughts you have like how tolerable the bubbles are etc
happy with car polarizer, still good condition, small bubbles easy ignorable, mainly installed it to preserve blacks. for glare i havent payed attention and dont remember about glare when the original AG coating was on it, its image quality overall is very good, brightfull enough, can perseive blacks much better than withuout any film on it screen, which was too grayish blacks were only persiebale in dark room
Sent you a message on heatware.

Hey I'm interested in you gigabyte aorus master 6800 xt, but can't PM. Can you email me at regular40us (at) gmail (dot) com? Thanks!
Hello! Was wondering if you still have the Aperture Science PC, and if you are interested in selling it?
I was wondering if you could help with a Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultra. It works for a few hours, then audio drops out and a high pitched noise comes from the speakers. If I unplug it for a while it goes back to normal. I've read overheating is common, so I'd like to buy one of your cooling kits. If this sounds familiar and you can give me insight on other parts that may be bad, any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Hey, I see you undervolting expert :) I have Ryzen 5900X on MSI motherboard. I want undervolt my CPU for better temps, but don't lose any performance. Can you help me? :)
You need to touch Curve Optimizer, as that is what actually "under-volts" your CPU. The PPT, TDC & EDC are power settings outside of voltage control.
Hello. i have updated my cooling with Corsair h100i elite lcd 240mm (2 fans). I set curve optimiser -25 all cores, PPT 120, TDC 80, EDC 120. Cinebench R23 multicore 20489 (stock settings with PBO off 20759), temp 65, single core 1625 (stock settings with PBO off 1614) temp 65. I think it's good for lower power settings and i get like stock cinebench values. What du you think?
If you're going for lower power, not bad. If you want a little better scores, EDC of 140A would be fine. I believe you also want TDC above EDC or you're really thermal limiting the chip needlessly. A better way to do it would be set the max temp in the bios from 90C to say 85C or 80C. That way you still get good boosting when needed.
Hello ThreeDee! Hope youve been well. I came across your post around using the H80 cooler for AM4 then signed up with the forum. I dug into my old boxes and found the two piece square bracket that only had two exterior screw mounts. Is that what you used? Did it fit with no other modifications? I believe you just had to install the two plastic brackets that comes with AM4 motherboards? Thanks for your time!
yes, the AM4 brackets that should have come with your cooler .. and they just screw into the back plate that came with your motherboard ... I think. It's been awhile since I've ran that AIO. Running a Noctua NH-D15 now with 2 x 140mm fans
Hi, I want to buy your 5600g cpu, mb, memory, and hd combo. lmk.
Makes sense. I recommend creating heatware account quick. So you can get positive feedback on purchases and sales. also you can private message me there as well. Let me know. Kinda makes sense not to share anything personal here for you or me.
maybe I'm too new, I can't find a private message feature
Did you create heatware account? Here is my profile link. Go to and create if you haven’t and you should be able to private message. Here on hardocp you can’t apparently until you have certain post count etc.

I'm contacting in regards to my original account "Ski" being banned because it was hacked. As you can I've been a member for over 10 years and been an active member throughout that time period.

If there's a way to unban it, what are the steps moving forward and I'll be more than happy to help.

We also having multiple issues with ours and wonder if you can help me it would be a lifesaver.
We have a 1x8 G2 AUTOLDR - MXA806Z039 on FW 5.0 and Drive Firmware M571
Drive is a HP Ultrium 8-SCSI Serial CZ28490M1F
MSL_1x8_G2_5.90.frm - Looks like the latest?
MSL_1x8_G2_3.80.frm - Might need this also?
I'm assuming the HP Ultrium 8- SCSI is the LTO_30750 firmware?
Thank you so much for any help you can give.

I'm interested in the 7500t you have up. New here. What is the best way to contact? I didn't see it on your Ebay store.
Guess I’m not the only guy here at [H] that has replacement hips and lives in Norfolk

If you still have it.
Sorry, I didn't catch this till today. Someone else sent me a private message the same day and I sold it.
Hey there
Saw you FS on that 400mm rad from years ago.
I’m planning to do a 400mm rad and I’m trying to decide on the best 200mm fans to use.
Any recommendations?
Looks like it was still in storage. I had the Phobya 400mm and 6 x 200mm fans. 4 of them were nzxt 200mm performance and 2 corsair (LED i think) fans. It was a long time ago but if my memory serves me right, it worked great. 400mm rad is a lot of cooling and I had the 200mm fans in push pull config. Kept my system at the time cool.
Here is a link to the rad and fans. Forgot to mention I have dust filters for the fans too...4 of them.
What are you looking for as far as $$ for the radiator and the 4 fans you used in push-pull

I forgot if I PMed you. That 4XL sounds like what I need. Please let me know what you need for it. Shipping to 04488...........Maine. I can live with no accessories but would love it if you have a spare case of any type. No case, no accessories, NO problem :) :) :) :)
Howdy howdy! Given it's been 8 years since your last activity here this is probably shouting in the wind.

I saw you had a post in this forum mentioning you played in the Oklahoma Badlands Subspace server.

I was 2nd in command of the server for a long time and thought I'd try to reconnect.
Sorry to bother you out of the blue like this but I've heard you're the one to ask when it comes to sourcing old CRT parts. I've got a GDM-2039 which needs a new flyback transformer, part no 1-453-137-11, and I can't find one that would ship to the UK. Do you have this part? If not, any advice or guidance would be very much appreciated.

best wishes,

Hi Wingman,

Thank you.

I have seen you posts about the thinktank, although you host site for the photos is down. I want to ask you some questions about my project on watercooling and your help is very much needed as you have experience on this. If you want to talk via skype pls let me know! Thank you for your time in advance!
Hi! You've received dozens of messages akin to this, but I thought maybe you'd be interested in a pickle: EVGA GTX 980 ti stopped working after changing thermal paste. I have checked possibly dislodged components, and nothing seems to have shorted. The PSU fires its failsafe when the card is plugged in, though. If you are interested in having a try with it, I'd gladly arrange a video call some day.
