    Psu fan replacement thoughts.

    Little to no information on the Athenatech power supply and no reviews to be found. Replace it with a branded quality unit.

    Logitech Announces Two Silent Mice

    Noise Abatement Society I find the mouse "click" rather reassuring?
  3. Try the GTX 285 cards in SLI if your power supply is up to the task? I don't know the resolution of your monitor but if it's not too high their performance may be enough to play most games at an acceptable FPS?

    GTX 1070 fan is always at 0%

    Are you relying on GPU-Z to report fan speed or actually having a look at it?

    How about that top 20

    Yeah I noticed but I'll keep my contribution going, small as it is, for the foreseeable future.

    How about that top 20

    What am I looking for? Do you mean all the members on zero?

    Some articles are saying your key may be changed when Windows 10 is installed?

    Windows 10

    Looks like I'll be running Windows 10. I left my PC on with screen turned off, came back an hour or so later, turned the screen back on and my PC is 10% into the Windows 10 upgrade. I was seriously considering upgrading before the offer ended but it would of been nice to be asked!
  10. In my opinion yes it's possible. Cooling fans don't have much start-up torque and a badly routed SATA cable could prevent one from turning if it's in contact with the fan blades.

  15. My PPD has dropped recently due to a GPU work unit that took about 4 days to complete (not running 24/7) for only 9000 points! The next one I get will take about 1 day for 100,000 points! From one extreme to the other. How do they work these things out?

    New Rumors of a Refreshed Xbox from Microsoft

    No it's true! I've even heard that there's going to be a Raspberry Square Root Of -1 but it could just be in someones imagination?

    If members want it badly enough how about a donation of $10/point to OCC funds?

    Opinions on new gaming build?

    The Noctua will be more than adequate and if you are only running the SDD then all's good. Enjoy your new build!

    Opinions on new gaming build?

    Looks like a great build to me! Have you not considered water cooling the processor? The only tiny concern might be the case. Don't get me wrong I love the Fractal cases, I have one myself, but you only have a couple of mm clearance on the graphics card unless you remove the top drive cage, and if you ever go SLI space and temperatures may be a problem?

    Annual OCC Contest Thread

    Thanks to Bosco, OCC and Noctua for the fan and games I won in the competition. May try running the fan at 24V and pointing it at my graphics card whilst folding and see if it helps with the temperatures?

    Annual OCC Contest Thread

    But I do worry. I worry all the time. I spend my life worrying. I'll make an exception this time though. Good luck to everyone that entered.

    Microsoft Visual c++

    I'm trying to "clean" up my PC a little before I take the plunge and upgrade to Windows 10. I've noticed that I have several different versions of Microsoft Visual C++ 20XX Redistributable (X64) & (X86) installed. Do I need all these different versions for "things" to work correctly or can I delete some of them and leave the latest 2013 (X64)?
