Re: AM3/AM3+ mATX w/ SATAIII

Yeah, it would be basically a downgrade...from an 890GX board to low-end 880G or 760G. You could get a self-contained 120mm water-cooler (i.e. Corsair H50 / H60, etc), but since you don't have a lot of places to mount fans, probably better to have it exhausting air out the rear of the case. The radi...

Re: AM3/AM3+ mATX w/ SATAIII

No idea why they are using an older 760G chipset. The main concern I was worried about was the lack of support for higher TDP CPUs. Many of them say it supports 125 W chips...but with a 4-pin CPU power connector and 3+1 power phase, I don't feel safe. 95W is fine but 125W and 140W...ehhhh. There isn...

Re: AM3/AM3+ mATX w/ SATAIII

Eh quite a few mATX AM3 / AM3+ boards, but most of them (like 90%+) uses the older 760G chipset... It won't be easy finding a board with SATA 6Gb/s ports... Using this AMD motherboard database as some sort of reference, I'd probably go for these: http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboards-vr...

Re: i5-3450 3.1GHz @ 3.9GHz

You cannot expect to tweak the multipliers or the bclk on a B75 chipset. The i5 3450 has a multiplier limit of 39 for a max OC of 3.9ghz. You can only access the multiplier or bclk if you have a z75 or z75 chip set. Did you try downloading from Intel the Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology Monitor? I w...

Re: ASUS TF300T 32GB Tablet

Hmm... I see. I'll look into the Nexus tablets. Thanks you two. As for the size, it isn't a real concern; 10.1" or 7" is fine. The reason I chose to go with Andriod was due to it being more flexible than the iOS alternative. Of course, and the price. We are beginning to work with some ARM processors...

The "Red" alternative would be the HD 7950. There a couple of them for $299.99 on NewEgg (excluding any applicable shipping, rebate, taxes) but goes up to $330. They also come with AMD's 3 free game package. There is a Sapphire 7950 for $279.99 after $20 MIR with free shipping. http://www.newegg.com...

Re: DIY All-in-One

Have you considered building a mini ITX system...say inside a BitFenix Prodigy case?

You can pack a beast into these tiny cases, yet, they are stylish and take up very little space.
