    About to try Ubuntu

    I just built a 'backup' rig outta old parts from my current gaming rig... well, since I replaced just about everything except the case itself I guess it IS my old rig... got a copy of Suse 10.1... gonna give that a try... as much as I hated Novell back in the day... heard Suse is pretty good... only distros I've played with before are Corel (sucked) and Red Hat (Early version... sucked) I'll post a new thread with what i find with Suse 10.1 as the title...

  7. If one worked for the Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service, would they not be a FATASS butthole?
  8. 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire a private investigator - Alan Pinkerton for protection. That was the beginning of the Secret Service. Since that time, the federal government has produced a large number of multi-letter agencies such as: FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, etc. Now we have the " Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service". Can't you see them now, these 'highly trained' men and women in their black outfits with jackets saying across their backs: F. A. T. A. S. S. The FATASS's are of course supervised by a special section of the Home Land Security Section known as: Airport Security Service Home Office Logistics Enhancement Section or the A.S.S.H.O.L.E.S. I feel safer already

    The Overclockers IMAGE Database

    I registered, thanks likewhoa! Nothing like free! lol
  10. Oh you can be sure if I had $27,000 to just spend, there'd be a hell of a lot more in the bank that I didn't have to just spend, lol... yeah, you're probably right... but I'm still drooling...
  11. I thought about lapping the bottom of my chipset cooler, but honestly my unmodded cooler has my chipset idling cooler than most of the reports I see for idle modded coolers... maybe it's an airflow thing, maybe I just got lucky and got a really well done application... who knows
  12. No, you probably don't, but if I had $27 Gs to spend I probably would have anyway, lol... and yeah it runs Vista Ultimate and Linux... Dual 8800s... :drool:

    Yep, Kaiserslautern is K-Town to just about everyone here... even half the Germans these days, lol... since you got BJ Barry on BigFM in Mannheim that can't make his mind up if he wants to speak German or English so he ends up speaking half and Half in each sentence, noone understands much of what he says, even those that speak both languages... anyway, he refers to it as K-town too...

    'ello mate

    New user here... thought I'd introduce myself... George... or AnUnknownSource. I know my sig is a little hard on the eyes... I already have a new one in the works... that was just a quick one I threw together when I made a forum sig a while back... Oh, one more thing... :spam:

    OK, went ahead an resized the sig and changed the color of the text a little so it's more readable... although I'm absolutely sure I read that 650x300 was the maximum signature size... but oh well...
  19. If you can't or won't get a heatgun for the heatshrink tubing, use a candle with a deep candle holder cup thingy (technical term all the way there). thats what I used and it worked great, especially if you hold heatshrink over the top and put a small glass over thaqt to trap heat over the other side too...
  20. Dude, get a can of spray paint.... eeeeewwwww to ugly old gray...

    NO Airflow - Need Case Suggestions

    I'm with General Septem here, turn your drives around and run the cables around the drive bay instead of through. I manages to get 5 drives in my acrylic case with a HUGE gap by doing this. Try using angry_games' templates and adding a fan or two to your side panel... I had one, and wasn't happy so added another, both blow right on my 7900GTXs... those with the one in the front blowing right through the gap have severely decreased my GPU temps... and stability! Don't buy something unless you really need it and are unhappy with your current case (i say this a couple weeks after spending over a grand on my rig that I didn't need :-)
  22. Just to add my two cents, I've done sleeving without the tools for years now, using a needle or my favorite tool that came with my Nokia N70 replacement cover that's designed to get the old cover off. As far as the molex pins never fitting as securely once you've removed them, bend the small metal pieces that secure the pins in the connector back out so they secure the pin. The only trouble I've had is when I bend them too far and they break :-) I just don't know my own strength.

    DFI Recommended Power Supplies (UPDATED October 20th, 2006!)

    Hey everyone, this is my first post... have a question... I have what's in my signature, and I need a PSU... I'm torn between the corsair HX620w and the OCZ 700w listed at the top of the thread... would either one suit my needs? If so i'm gonna go for the Corsair even though it'll be ugly in my acrylic case I was looking at an Apevia but apparently they suck... so what's your thoughts... Corsair or OCZ keeping in mind there's about a $30 difference in price... I read the top of this thread... and skipped about 95 pages so this may have been covered... lol
