  1. It's been a while since I've be on OCC, but I'm cleaning out my closet and posting these things up here first. They are all from a project that never really got off the ground a couple years ago. All the water cooling stuff is unused other then to assemble them. Prices include shipping, which will be via USPS Priority mail. Unless otherwise mentioned everything sold "As is..". Swiftech Storm $15 http://www.swiftnets.com/products/Storm.asp Once the top of the line water block, it's since been eclipsed by newer designs. I have no idea how it compares now. Comes with barbs for 1/2" and 3/8" tubing as well as original mounting for socket 754, 939, 940, 468, 478, 775, 603/604. As you can see there is some tarnishing on the inside of the block, but that's purely cosmetic. DDC-1 18W pump with Alphacool Top $50 http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/ind...roducts_id=4509 Never been used, I don't have have any tubing or fittings for it so I can't test it out. If it doesn't work let me know within a reasonable amount of time and I'll refund your money. Delrin Fillport $5 http://www.dangerden.com/store/delrin-fillport.html The body is made of Delrin and the fitting is nikel plated brass. 1/2" OD fitting. Thermochill pa120.3 Radiator $50 http://www.thermo-chill.com/old/pa1203.php Comes with fan mounting screws, neoprene gasket and fittings for 1/2" tubing. It has some superficial scuffs on it (which the matte black paint is very susceptible to). Also there's a very small area where the paint chipped away. 2x Plexi Aquatube reservoir $70 each http://www.aqua-computer.de/e_index.htm These are pretty unique. It's my understanding they only made 100 in plexiglass. Matrix Orbital 410 LCD $30 http://www.matrixorbital.com/mx410-p-410.html Comes with 8 temperature probes and close to 50 WOL cables (used for connecting the temp probes to the LCD). There's some light scuffs on the front of the mounting plate. New mounts can be bought for about $30. http://www.matrixorbital.com/lcd-accessori...ng-c-26_30.html. There are a couple bent pins on the back and one broken pin GPO pin. I plugged it in and sent text to the screen and every thing worked fine. MISC: Yellow/Green UV water dye $1 http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/152429/ForSale/10-20-09_4381.jpg 8x 3/8" tube clamps $1 http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/152429/ForSale/10-20-09_4377.jpg That's all for now. It's almost 4am so hopefully I didn't make too many typos.

    Hdtv For Monitor (hdtv Ready?)

    to go a step further that monitor doesn't have any kind of tv tuner. it's really a computer monitor with some extra inputs. calling it a tv is a bit of a stretch. I've been looking into getting this monitor myself, it seems to have a decent picture, but you should know that if you ever want to watch tv (High Def or Standard Def) you'll need to hook your cable or satellite box up to the monitor though composite or component inputs.

    External Scratch Disk For Photoshop On A Mac

    I've never been able to find a comparison of the two using a recent photoshop version. There is a fairly simple and standardized benchmark anyone can download, but their database results are use the "honor" system and has now way to search the results. http://www.driverheaven.net/photoshop/

    External Scratch Disk For Photoshop On A Mac

    Well even though you got it to work is it really the best thing to do? I would think that the latency and real world transfer rate of the USB interface would yield poorer results then using your boot drive for a scratch disk.

    How Much Damage Can 35mm Take?

    Negatives can be easy to damange especially on the emulsion side. The thing is they aren't going to get in any better condition sitting around. If you want to preserve them, then now is the time to get them scanned. Then you can work on getting the scratches out with photoshop. If you want a more analog approach there's a oil that can be applied to the film base. If the scratches are in the base, the oil will fill them in. Then the negative is printed. You can stop there, have the print scanned in, or even have a new negative burned. Pretty much anything is possible. It all depends on how much you how much you want to pay for it.

    Frequency Of Losing Water

    Most (if not all) tubing has microscopic pores which water vapor can escape though. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Choosing A 24" Lcd Under 1k

    thanks for letting me know. you can search google and find there are still some issues with banding on that screen. to save money dell often switches panels in the same model monitor. I never said the 244t was a good monitor for gaming. Hey look, I even said the opposite. since we are talking about ourselves: I edit high resolution photographs and would rather better color reproduction then....anything.

    Choosing A 24" Lcd Under 1k

    even the a02 revision by dell has some issues with banding. it seems the monitor is made from a couple different panels. And some panels have problems with banding even with the a02 firmware revision. probably not very noticeable if all you are going to do is play games though.

    Choosing A 24" Lcd Under 1k

    samsung 244t, i just purchased one, after reading many reviews. I've heard of some people having problems with it and gaming, but it has great color reproduction. I'll have to see when i get it. don't know anything about 225bw but the 205bw uses a panel that isn't the best for color. dvd watching and gaming are probably fine, but if you want something for picture editing you should probably look for something thats either s-pva or s-mva. this is a good link with lots of info. http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.as...p;enterthread=y

    Cpu Mark Up?

    most of the time amd and intel list the pricing per 1000 chips on their website, this is what retailers like newegg pay. http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Produc...ml?redir=CPT301 http://www.intel.com/intel/finance/priceli...e_final_web.pdf

    Tiger Woods Pga Tour 2005

    lots of things come into play. hitting to an elevated green, hitting a ball out of the rough, hitting the ball into the rough, hitting a ball below your feet, fade, draw, slice, ball spin, ball trajectory, and wind all effect the distance your ball will travel.
