  1. That's not a good reason to not cite a source! I expect more from OCC members than I do other message boards. This site used to be the premier place for hardcore PC enthusiaists, and I really hope we can retain that.
  2. With that kind of pricing, they may just not be applying the EE branding. They're going to be 'extreme' enough with those kind of specs. Also, as a wise troll once said in reference to the gulftown: They are going run 4500MHz @ .8v (stock), Overclock to 7+GHz and cost $89.99 and come with free Motherboard fitted with 12GB of DDR4-3000 We just don't know the truth yet. @ RO GamerZ: Can you provide a valid source? Sorry OP, didn't mean to call you out.
  3. Listen, I'm not trying to preach here, but DAMN. Why the hell would you suggest that anyone torrent NOD32? It's an application that NEEDS to be supported to survive. If you like it enough to recommend it or know how to cheat them month after month, don't you think they deserve the profit? They're not a big name that can handle piracy. That's all I'm trying to say. I'd download a car, but damn I wouldn't download a stolen item from a small business. It's just rude.
  4. What the .? Did you create another account to give yourself a pat on the back? The level of idiocracy at OCC has risen dangerously since I've been away.
  5. This isn't a difficult process at all. You're going to want to add your @uni.edu account as a POP3 mail account in 'Accounts and Imports' in GMail settings. After adding the account, you can apply labels to incoming mail from the @uni.edu account. You can also use a filter to control mail behavior and create another 'inbox' of sorts by autoarchiving incoming mail without marking it as read. You'll also be able to use GMail's 'Send Mail as' section under Accounts and Imports to grant yourself a dropdown list of e-mail accounts you wish to send an e-mail from. In these cases, mail will be delivered as '@gmail.com on behalf of @uni.edu'. Psst, GMail usually detects the correct settings for ports. If it doesn't or if for any reason you cannot figure it out, I suggest calling your campus Tech Support Center.
  6. Why not wait till the RMA drive has hit your doorstep to try the controller board swap? Hell, call the company and be honest about it. Does the drive 'rattle' at all when shaken? Chances are it's not going to be worth the effort if the arm wasn't in locked position when the drive failed.
  7. Replacing a backlight usually requires a bit of soldering. It's usually more of a pain in the arse to disassemble the LCD panel than it is to solder the backlight leads on, though. Good luck!
  8. I have a separate thread for my own setup in progress, but what are the advantages to running independent loops vs one single loop? Perhaps I'm missing something, but if the heat transfer capacity of each individual loop (assuming you aim for a multiple loop setup) is great enough to adequately cool the water-blocks independently, why would the radiators suddenly be less efficient? The only difference I'm aware of is the additional strain on a single pump, though adding an additional pump to a single loop setup isn't an unorthodox tax.
  9. They're missing a couple notable programs: GOM Player Sumatra PDF Viewer I prefer Sumatra to Foxit, and GOM to VLC.
  10. Why not try a repair installation of Windows? If it's successful, your friend won't lose any data. If necessary, click here for a quick how-to.
  11. Now we're getting somewhere. Why do you seem to think 76C is an acceptable temperature? Your processor is overheating. I'm willing to bet the stock thermal pad dried up under duress. It's also possible that your fan ducting is filled with dust or pet hair.
  12. I think Phil has nailed it with "Berkeley SE492". I've never heard of that car manufacturer till now.
  13. Were you ever able to run WoW fluently? EDIT: If your laptop isn't overheating and you have correctly addressed the power options, there isn't a reason for the under-clocking (AMD Cool n' Quiet, you've done it again!). I suggest you run Notebook Hardware Control to verify that you are not experiencing heat related issues. You may also change your CPU frequency with this application to 'overclock', though I'd recommend against exceeding the stock speed of your Athlon X2 QL-60 - That's 1.9GHz.
  14. Do you have any available PCI slots? You needn't run all three monitors off of the same video card. You can purchase a 'main' gaming-grade graphics card for your AGP slot and stuff a cheap-o graphics card in a free PCI slot.
