New Case Needed!

My case sucks :P It doesnt even have a system fan for crying out loud! I'm not being silly when i'm assuming you can put a Micro-ATX MB into a full sized ATX case am I? I want to clarify this before I start 'shopping'. Do you guys know of any good cases out there? lol, ok what I mean is: My current ...

Nice one guys!

I wish i had more money :P

Are you guys going to get a comparison of the lesser 900 series vs 800 series anytime soon? I'm wondering how the power usage compares across the whole line.

ARGH!!! HELP!!!

I think my laptop isn't stable! :rolleyes: The stupid thing is that everything is at stock! Now I know most of you are going to tell me that’s because I'm running a P4 Mobile, :P Truth is there's a lot of negative rep about my laptop, but it's a solid machine, with HT on it out-performs a 2.26GHz P-...

I know this overclocking method has been used before with pentium M's, switching the FSB to 533 on a 400 FSB rated chip. Though for people to get it to work they've had to use a small wire to ground some of the pin sockets, known as pin modding! The additional jumpers are a handy touch! = no fiddili...

The black pad probably was the thermal pad :P I know its kinda obvious, but did you make sure there was good contact between the CPU and the heatsink when installing it. Oh, wait its a P-M, yeah, lack of thermal compound sounds the killer issue here! (is there/was there not a thermal pad on the heat...

Processor Folding Efficiencies!

Im currently doing some half-hearted casual folding every now and again on my P-D 820, though I can't dislodge the little niggling thought about how much power it uses (ive set up two [email protected] cores :mrgreen: ). Does anyone have any idea what the most efficient processor to fold with is? Both speed of fo...

ok, so i guess that i'll not go based purely on that. :P
But are my suspicions correct about there being three varients of the AXIOM cards?

I like the idea of the PCI-e lane 'throttling down' to x1 when its not needed. Or does ATI's MXM variant do that as well?

If AXIOM exists are there three varients too? Reason i ask is because i was wondering if the mobility X300 uses AXIOM an...

I figured i would have to take the ducting off. :)

Short of drilling a 120mm fan to the case door, is there a less permanant method of attaching it that wont 'damage' the actual case in any way? Say like sellotape :shock: lol.

Currently the only intake fan for my system is the stock CPU cooler with a huge tube on it (see picture below): ht...
