Re: PSU alternative usage?

If you do electronics, can convert an old PSU to be a bench power supply.

Re: Anyone seen anything like this?

Had this happen with both A6 and A10 CPUs, I traced it down to graphics drivers. There would be something that would cause the driver to crash, in the process lock the machine up. Started with slight glitches on one of the two monitors I had, the screen would blip snow for a few seconds, then be fin...

Re: Optical drive prices????

its sad, not many are buying them. Less people buying, less volume, price goes up.

I use BD-R for archiving stuff at work. Not uncommon to go back 4 or 5 years to restore a file that hasn't been touched in that time. Not looking forward to when optical goes away for good. That will suck.

SO go direct from APC or go to some place like Batteries+ in town. Looked up that model, from the look of it that is WAY old. I would get a ne...

Re: Looking into new water cooler!

my rig sets 2 feet from my head when I sleep. I blacked out any LED I could find on my system. Helps for the nights I leave the thing running to crunch on downloads (DSL Sucks) or trans-coding.
