    Dfi Global Forum Down ?

    Senor Sysgensmyth, it's always nice to see a familiar avatar. Hope the news from Lake Wobegon is still good - despite escalating problems around the globe, some real, others really fanciful ...

    Dfi Global Forum Down ?

    A suspension (by their site host) makes sense of the message ... thanks.
  3. Has the DFI Global forum been hacked ? I get a web page with only the following: ======================= This Account Has Been Suspended Please contact the billing/support department as soon as possible. ======================= Huh?? I am sure I haven't made any posts that would cause my suspension ... I haven't even posted in a couple of weeks, maybe a month. Is anyone else getting this message ?

    Any Good Wire Tucking Guides?

    Any extra wires from the PSU I try to tuck into an empty bay. I run some wires behind the motherboard tray (I don't know why the case manufacturers don't provide more space between the tray and the removable side panel) and tape them in place. The wires that you can't hide you sleeve (for molex extensions I buy fancy) ... Maybe you can get some ideas from these pics. Considering that it has two watercooling circuits, nine internal fans, and 5 lights, it's pretty neat: :0

    Case Airflow

    I don't know of any positive/negative effects to having positive/negative pressure in the case. The goal is to have adequate or better airflow over all parts that need to be cooled. I try to get air moving as fast as possible front to back with a fan or two over memory and the chipset. And I try to avoid conflicting flow. Cable management (try running most of your wires behind the mobo tray) is also important to having good airflow ...

    Wow, Shakira Blows

    Maybe her songs and dancing are lousy, but there is NO ONE ALIVE (NO ONE!!) who can move her body between waist and knee like Shakira. THAT was her great appeal, BELLY DANCING PAR EXCELLENCE. But I think that in the last few years she got a bee up her bonnet about BEING TAKEN SERIOUSLY or JOINING THE MAINSTREAM (opposites I know but I can't figure her out) and started this weird dancing style. Most likely that her boyfriend at the time dumped her and she is going thru "I AM STILL BEAUTIFUL" changes that women do when dumped. Most women go on an anoerexic diet when that happens; Shakira lost her confidence in the sexiness of her belly dancing (I MEAN WOW HERE) and is experimenting ... better a diet ...
