This doesn't really matter, but in my apartment building, there are these bastards that play their music really loud sometimes. So I crank up my Z-5500's sub and blow them away. Sure, I'll have a headache for a few hours and my stuff will be moved around because of the simulated earthquake, but flex...

Buying a keyboard without trying it first is silly.

I wonder why so many people at Blizzcon went, compared to Quakecon. I should go find out how many people attended Blizzcon.

I read somewhere (other forums) that the new 7x/x18's are so powerful that the cpu is pretty much going to be the bottleneck until the next generation comes out.

But with the 6 series, you'll probably be fine with any A64.

Temps seem a little warm for the low speed and at 1.376v... but that's probably because of the two cores.. and the stock HSF.

I'd probably stick around 1.55, since if you run your proc really hot, the performance degrades... you might not be able to OC as well after a while.

The best way is to catch it when someone up front throws the item up for grabs after roughly shoving and pushing people out of the way.

Not that I do that, but it's probably the most satisfying.

And I was worried about putting a Coolermaster Hyper6 on my mobo... That's just insane! 8)

Mounted horizontally like that, the heatpipes rest on the PCI slots, so that seems okay, but in a Tower.. :/

Softmodding is always a possibility... They can't see that and it doesn't really void your warranty.

IMO, if he's using AGP, he should get the 6800LE on newegg for ~$130. I've heard lots of success with unlocking all the pipes, more so than on my vanilla 6800. :(
