  1. 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

  3. 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...

  4. Thanks RyderOCZ, have a question though if you don't mind,


    I noticed that he has it set to 2-3-2-8 instead of 2-3-2-5... is this recommended or is this maybe a blooper? I'm gonna try it as it reads there, then play with Tras until I find the fastest stable...


    I might find I'm a dumbass and a higher number here is faster, but to be honest, I only know a little about RAMtimings so it wouldn't surprise me, lol


    Thanks for the quick reply!

  5. Hi I have this OCZ memory, and have the basic timings set up in the BIOS, but I have no idea what to put in the other fields in the bios. I have a Lanparty UT nF4 SLi-DR Expert motherboard and the memory in the title of this post.


    I hate using Auto" settings unless I can help it, and as the auto settings mis-detected the CAS of this as 2.5 I'm wondering what else I can set to the correct values. Thanks,



  6. 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 :-)


  7. 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.

  8. 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...



  9. 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
