    you can get an adapter to kickstart a second PSU without voiding your warranty. My Lian-Li case came with one. look at performance-pcs.com

    Ultra Suing Competitors

    lol and the patent isn't even for modular PSUs... it's for putting modular PSUs in consumer machines... so when I put my corsair in my machine myself, I broke patent laws... come sue me ultra!

    Hard Drive Setup Suggestions

    I tend to do the same, OS and programs/games on one, pagefile and storage on the other. I tend to move "My Documents" to the other drive as well. If my drives aren't any good (I'm procrastinating finding out...) I'll be re-working my setup too ^^

    STOP errors, V64 - Im exhausted

    did you put your components back to stock and see if you had issues? GDubbR did you try using just 2 sticks of RAM? Hiper PSU is possibly a problem... and GDubb, your PSU while not bad, might be under powered with the 8800 in there. random errors that can't be pinpointed usually boil down to a bad, underpowered or just plain cheap PSU.

    Sandra problem

    Are your sticks of RAM in the slots closest to the CPU? that's known to cause low benchmarks in Sandra (google search turned this up) The large memory pages problem seems unsolved in many threads, and there's mention that it's a bug with Sandra and Vista...
  15. as soon as I get my rig back up, I'll be pumping out some wu's from over here in Japan I'm not even gonna bother on this laptop ^^

    USA Falling Behind in Broadband?

    Oh, I forgot to mention that $54 for 100/whatever comes with VOIP phone as well... not bad rates either.... ~5 yen a minute to the states, ~6 yen to Germany and england... don't call anywhere else so I don't know... it's running slower today, and this is what I get... when they first hooked it up it pegged the little speedometer to the top on upload and download...

    USA Falling Behind in Broadband?

    The 100 MBit for $35 is a little exaggeration, NTT charges $54 for the fiber line, called BFLET and if you don't read kanji, or speak Japanese, it's useless without paying another $20+ for an ISP that translates things for you... at least thats how it is here on Okinawa Island, and from what I can see at the NTT website for the rest of Japan. but still, it's a lot better than whats avail for a reasonable price stateside.

    Fan controller

    5-1/4"Sunbeam Rheobus, as suggested by A_G and some others. I also used a vantec nexus 3-1/2" controller, both work wery well. If you get the right vantec, the voltage doesn't jump as some say it does, and it won't make noise. you'd probably want to hack the LEDs off the sunbeam though, they're pretty bright.

    Isn't the wattage being drawn from the socket going to be different anyway? The rated wattage at the 12/5v DC end is one thing, the watts the psu draws from the socket (AC) is going to be different (lower), it's a different circuit. I may be wrong. Who's testing PSUs? We got something for you to test...

    Military Agreement

    Wow! This threads gone WAY off topic... ^ that post is ridiculous and doesn't even get a reply... I want to point something out about the OP... The presidential directive that's linked is from May 07, and is just instructing the different branches of our government to have plans for continuity in an Emergency. There's nothing wrong with that unless you're planning on overthrowing the government when they're distracted with an emergency... The other link, the "military agreement" doesn't order, or suggest that our military act as law enforcement. The agreement allows the use of the other's military resources (money, personnel) to overcome the emergency... they'd be acting under orders of the host country's own leaders... at least that's how I understood the agreement.
