Re: Aerocool touch 1000?

You won't be able to see the fan's RPMs and the fan controller depends on the fan's tachometer wire to set the RPMs therefore it keeps resetting simply because it doesn't "know" what RPMs it's spinning at

Re: CES 2013: OCZ Shows Of Their PCIe Vector SSD

I don't yet know too much about PCIe SSD drives. I hope to see future testing of these drives in the various pcie ports on mobos. For example, will it run faster on pcie 3.0 vs. 2.0? I would think so. Also, I'm one of those folks who would not want to give up a slot on my mobo from my gpu or gpuS i...

Re: AMD Kabini and Temash APUs Shown Off At CES 2013

It sounds like AMD is turning out some exciting APUs and the competition with Intel in this market share is VERY interesting! ;) Not to forget that IMO the most important thing even in ultraportables/laptops is still graphics performance and AMD has just that over Intel all the time even if they ha...

Re: A good strong multipurpose system (p2)

Depends. If it's a few more frames you are definitely hitting a bottleneck but seriously? Few more frames? The performance delta between the 7970 and 7770 IS HUGE.

Re: CES 2013 - CES Unveiled Media Kickoff Event Coverage

I would be worried if the HZO coating is actually conformal coating, not a good idea for heat dissipation if it is.

Re: Aerocool touch 1000?

Put it where it's easiest to use. It would be nice if someone made an internal fan controller (say 5 connections and an internal USB header). Then ship software to control the fans exactly. I have a fan controller too and at the same time I hate having to give up a 5.25" bay just to use it. Let us ...

Re: Car Audio & Civic rebuild

How much can you afford? Focal speakers and JL subs are great if they are on discount, like my dad's friend did About those flat subwoofers, it's a rule of thumb, a truckload more power (so a coincidental faster battery death) to drive it if you need more "thump" or "boom" in which the latters means...

Re: Good FREE Testing Programs for HDDs/SSDs

The question is how big will Win7 be? Very big. At least 20-30GBs gone in my case, if you use ultimate
Win8 is not a exception, it's larger as usual and anyway, Win8 is crap if you haven't used it yet :x

Re: SSD And a Caviar Drive

Certainly not going to go green because it costs the same for me as a blue drive and runs at "5400RPM" but i guess longer warranty justifies paying extra

Re: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W Power Supply

Yuck, white and red. Definitely not the 2 colours you want to mix Firstly most AMD systems come in red and black. So a HEC Cougar has a nice colour scheme, orange and black for AMD Intel systems are mostly very blue so red wouldn't go down and you won't see a red motherboard with white accents becau...

Re: Installed memory 4GB (2GB usable)

Ran into this issue a while ago but it was slightly different than yours, in fact it was a massive BUMMER I had a ASUS EEE netbook and i decided to upgrade the 1GB DDR3 RAM (which actually in fact is DDR2 but in DDR3 socket!, BUMMAH!!!) because that was becoming a huge bottleneck in overall performa...

I'm going for the 1TB ones as i already have a storage server in the hall I know caviar black wi...

Probably much less, in the order of a few watts as they commonly have no heatsinks and i guarantee you the only sucker is the main ASIC and without heatsinks more than a few watts and they are seriously dying on startup

Certainly.
Anyway. SSDs have limited lifespans even with garbage collection so i wouldn't use them as cache drives in any way. :lol:
