    Boots? No Problem!

    just read the whole thread that right 1 hours of reading. Seriously I thought America was a "free" country, this is just ridiculous. If APS knew what was good for them they would have dropped it after a week.

    Beep Beep Beep

    Could b a number of things, psu, board, graphics, but yes My Old DFI Infinity had a beep if the NB got toasty so I poped a HR05 on it. You need to locate the problem before you can solve it.
  3. well presuming they use the same thermal sticky pads of horror that they used on my blitz formula then there not brilliant, but do work well enough to do the job. (they wouldn't be able to sell the product otherwise) When I took mine off to water cool them I used a hair dryer and heated them up for 30 seconds then using a cloth to stop burning my hands gently prised it off. My thoughts would pull me away from freezing, although it will separate the two materials, when things freeze things become brittle and tend to snap, sheer off and generally just break. However I have heard that this method has had some success, the most common mehtod I have heard of being used is the heating one though. However Unless your removing them to install another product, be it water blocks or a thermalright, I really would just leave it the hell alone. Hope this helps.

    What is your connection speed/type?

    Notice thats the speed at work. my home connection is puny and offers no upward speed. (and come to think of it little downward).

    What is your connection speed/type?

    work speed it hits over 30 up and down, when not in use
  9. go with the 256mb 8800GT If your gaming at 1680x1050 and want decent AA and AF you mite want the 512mb version. yes one of these babys will stomp over your previous card(s)

    DIY-Street Game of the Year 2007!

    by big name titles that didnt live up to the hype I'm guessing your referring to Crysis, I mean its pretty and all but not brilliant. So apart from bioshock what other new games did you sit down and throughly play this year that really didnt live up to expectations. Also how can you go through and not give the Orange box one mention?
  11. my advice is to sell the two seperate card's add the money on from the cost of the third party cooler + a few quid more, and get an 8 series single slot card.

    Heat Sink

    I dont rate the arctic cooling range as much as most do, you need a tuniq, or a Zalman 9700 on half-full speed.

    When do you overclock?

    wrong there are ways of testing RMA'd products (processors) if they have died from overvoltage or constant use of too much voltage. not likely to be done but it could be. Also I know the big corporations dont give a dogs mess about us in reality, but Its just wrong to RMA something that you have broken yourself.
  14. ill give it a go when I get my WC rig set up I have a spare unused and lapped (i was bored) 2180.

    RPG, RTS, FPS, what's the differences?

    Hey over 30's is a little harsh, granted some
  16. s1ick

    Which one is better

    yer low range of new cards are still beaten by the high end old cards, as a rule.
  17. wow im glad ive never had to RMA anything there way!

    Upgrade time

    Completely agree with wev on this one a new 8800GT or 512mb GTS would be a brilliant investment. SLI with what you have would be a big fat waste of money, in comparison with upgrading the card.

    DIY-Street Game of the Year 2007!

    BAM purchased

    so what do you all think? Im gonna try fit it in a lian li pc7 so ill let u all know how it goes. any advice or opinions?
  22. OMG I'm soo annoyed, I have spent the last few weeks/months of my life playing COD4 and I cannot live without it. I have a legitimate version of the game as always, and I've just attempted to play some crossfire and bam this little message pops up. Some pikey thieving little . tard has managed to get a hold of my cd key, how I am clueless. All I can hope is that they get bored and don't like the game (like thats gonna happen as its bloody immense). I love my cod4 I've heard that activision are useless when it comes down to sorting this out, looks like a trip down to the shops to get me a new cd key.

    Where to Shop Guide (Stores listed by country)

    Just thought I'd mention the guy's I just brought my water cooling setup from as there not on the list. It's www.chilledpc.co.uk I ordered Thursday night, products were here Monday morning. You don't get much better than that! Also emails were done from one personally and he was extremly quick to respond to any queries.
