    Ipod Mini Mods

    well ive succesfully soft modded my 2nd gen 4gb silver ipod mini. i installed linux, and i also installed idoom. i can now play videos by converting them to an ipod friendly format. it's awesome, linux for it pretty much takes the software barrier off the ipod and unleashes it's power. obsolete_power convinced me to give ipod linux a try, and then i got uber into it. this is trully awesome, takes a crappy ipod and makes it not-so-crappy . oh, and ive also had some serious problems when installing because i thought it was bricked, but i guess ipods really are unbrickable (unless they have defective parts)

    Ipod Mini Mods

    if it gets stuck on the apple logo and just wont boot even after u reboot (hold on, hold off, hold Menu and the middle button), then u can get it to boot into a special mode (hold on, hold off, hold play/pause and middle) that will let u plug it into ur pc to reformat it.
  4. heres the deal- did you scratch teh mirror finish on the cpu or heatsink at ALL when removing the thermal paste? if not, then ur ok. get some arctic silver 5 and apply it with the instrucions on their site. that should fix the problems. a cpu with no thermal compound will go up in smoke. remember, when u put on compound, less is better, but you want a nice even coverage.

    My First Build

    get the tsunami, or a nice quiet sonata 2. stay away from the fancy lit up PSUs with leds and stuff. get an enermax noisetaker 600w, stability and performance comes before looks. and no it doesnt look ugly. the wires come sleeved. and welcome to OCC
  12. you want a clean, professional look right? well get either a hole saw, a hole punch or a dremel (whatever you want), and make a nice clean cut. take your time. then get some files and do all the rough work with them. get some emery cloth sandpaper and finish it off. thats the best way to get uber pro results. i dont like rubber molding cuz it doesnt look that good IMO.

    Decent Lcd For Under 150

    aaah, nm then. well for only 150, your best bet is to get a 17" no name, or a 2nd hand if you like to gamble.
  16. xOMG IT WAS BOSCOS B-DAY AND I DIDNT KNOE, IM SO SRY! Happy delayed B-day!

    Ocz Phase Change

    440$ is downright worth it, were talking about sometihng thats cheaper than the original vapo chill (although it doesnt keep as cool) and a bit more than a good watercooling setup, and it works way better than the latter. i am looking into getting one, but that case has go to go its ugly. (insert dremel here)

    Decent Lcd For Under 150

    nope if you want something long lasting it will be 350+. my 19" 930 mb 4ms response was 500 with tax.

    Copy Ipod Music -> Computer

    simple. tools-folder options-show hidden files and folderes. enable using the ipod as a harddrive, go into it via my computer and look into the hiden folder. browse around till you find the music. after you copy it all to the pc, and you want to put it back on the ipod, do so with itunes. done

    ^^you mean doom 3 and hl2 i gave half life a try on my mini, its VERY nicely detailed, but too dang hard! i cant get past 2 zombies with my pistol...
  25. 1gb or good quality ram. think of it this way, if you et 2 sticks of mushkin redline and put in another stick of 49.99$ 512 mb kingston cheapo, IF you can get them to actually work together, the 400$ redline will only work as fast as the weakest link, the kingston in this example.
