  1. Well I noticed the fan isn't broken, because it spins up for a few seconds at start, then completely stops. I e-mail Antec's customer support, with two detailed questions, but they only replied with instructions on how to replace the product via Antec. I bet they didn't even read the question. Anyways... going or sendind it to Rotterdam would be 10 times more expensive then just buying a new one, so I'm kinda thinking about replacing the fan... but if this one spins, I'm not sure how is it broken.
  2. Well it's still in warranty, but the shop is pretty far away... So I might just wait a bit more and see what happens.
  3. Hy, as the title says, my Earthwatts PSU fan isn't spinning. Tbh i don't remember if it used to stop and restart again, as some of the search results said, but it's not spinning at all now. Is there a way to check if it turns on automatically when the temperature is higher?
  4. It has but it doesn't have the resolution i want. I tried with this tool, it has really advanced features, but when i tried to set the desired resolution, it got even worse. I found an option on the TV to stretch the image horizontally, this way it fills it entirely, and the noises are gone too, so i will leave it as it is. Thx for the help guys
  5. Hy, i have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop with some onboard ATI Radeon Xpress Series gfx "card". As you may already guessed, I also have a Sony Bravia 40", and I want to connect it to this laptop via a VGA cable (obsolete, but it's all i can do atm). I had no problems at all doing this, everything worked fine, but the TV has a resolution of 1366 x 768 (at least that's what the specs say). Obviously the Catalyst Control Center doesn't show this option, nor allows me to force it, and the Windows properties isn't more usefull either. I googled all over about this, and the only thing i found that might work, was the registry hack for forcing a resolution, but since i can't try it out until tomorrow, i'd rather search for more orthodox methods to do it. The 100 pixels difference in the screen width doesn't bother me, i could live with that, but i noticed some horizontal lines (likes 5-6 of them) on the TV screen, flickering, and I thought the wrong resolution might cause this. So, I'm asking you to help me force the resolution on the external Tv somehow. Here are the TV specs if they are of any use: Sony Bravia 40" My CCC shows way higher resolutions, I really doubt this screen can go that far (2048x1536), but it doesn't show the one i need. Thx for any help.
  6. Wow, that's a lot of wind Well tbh idk exactly, it's some Antec NSKxxx the cheaper ones It has those ventilation holes on the side and front, and a 120 rear fan.
  7. Would a front case fan help? (i have a rear one already)
  8. Hmm, thx for the reply. The temps are not load temperatures, sry my bad. Here it is while running Super PI:
  9. Hey, I don't wanna piss anyone off with some old and repetitive questions, I just wanna ask a few questions about my system. First of all, I have an intel E8200 with stock cooling, some antec case, a-Data RAM's (800 MHz). Below you can see my settings, I've been running it for almost a year now, 100% stable. I've been reading some articles tho, where some people say it's too much, or it's too hot, and it might get damaged over time. I'm not an OC freak, and i don't need this speed, so I could set it lower, but I thought it would be better to use it on 1:1 FSB:DRAM ratio, and 400 Mhz Dram frequency, because it looks more "stable". So should i let it run as it is? My second question isn't about OC, but i didn't wanted to open a new thread, in case someone in here knows something about it: As you can see one of the cores has higher temperature than the other. I am using WinXP SP3, and the rumors say XP isn't optimized for dual cores, so the two cores won't be used in the same ammount. Is there some patch to fix this, or is it normal like this? Thx.
  10. Well i got the 2253BW, with a CMO panel, made in Romania. I bought it from Saturn (germany) for 220 euros. I was waiting for something really bad for a CMO panel, but it rly disappointed me, in the good way, because i am satisfied with how it looks. Colors are okay, after a few minutes of amateur screen calibration, the colors were really good, the screen is bright even without the magicbright and magictune stuff, i didn't activate those. Backlight bleeding is noticeable, but only on black background, on top and a bit on the bottom of the screen over like half a cm width, so it's really no trouble at all, only if you want a perfect monitor, which doesn't exist. The controls on the monitor are a bit hard to reach, because they are hidden under it, but u don't have to use them that much. No ghosting or w/e in games/movies, performs really good. The thing that i don't like on it, is the stand, which isn't adjustable, and it's a bit short. Here are some pics with it:
  11. As the title says, I wanna buy a 22" lcd monitor, and i don't wanna regret my decision later, so i need your opinions. The monitor will be used mostly for gaming / movies (no graphic stuff; DVI required). I've read lots of reviews and comments, and i narrowed my selection down to LG or Samsung, more likely Samsung. So, to make this simple and less boring, i have to choose between the following 3 monitors: 2232 / 2243 / 2253. If you have other monitors that you would recommend, bring it on, but only with good reasoning or personal experience Thx a lot, and sorry for another boring topic (i know, i've read them all) LE: i wanna order it today, so i need to decide asap
  12. Sorry for hijacking your thread, but i have a related question I bet everyone heard about the Samsung 226bw's 3 panel versions, the A, C and S, where A and C were some crappy chinese-made panels, and the S was the good version. I am wondering if Samsung did this to other models too, particularly the 2232BW. I was thinking about buying that model, is it okay?
  13. Yeah same fingers here Well it's not really about the shape, cuz i saw it, and i can imagine the feel, but i was worried that my long fingers would make it uncomfortable to hold. Anyways, thx for the replies, i will order this mouse
  14. Well thx for replying, as i said, im only interested in the way of holding it. Im used to claw holding, but since mx518 is designed for palm, i don't know if it will fit in my hands...
