  1. Aren't those 2 extra power connectors for SLI?
  2. Would you mind sharing those "ways" with us?

    Socket 939 Discussion Thread

    If the rules said give all your money to Happy_Games, you would do that too.
  4. Since no one's responding, I'm guessing #1 and #3 are the same.

    Review: 600w OCZ GameXStream (7/21/2006, merged)

    Nice deal, shipping is $4.99 for me so about $95 after rebate. Newegg has this for $110 after rebate plus $10 shipping.
  6. I tried routing cables behind my motherboard with my Modstream PSU and Centurion 5, unfortunately only 2 cables were actually long enough, the other cables were either too short or too stiff.
  7. I'm pretty sure replacing your chipset fan voids your DFI warranty, in fact any physical modification will void your warranty.
  8. Thx politbureau, those settings you gave me worked perfectly.
  9. I can prime a couple of hours with those settings, but they're just not 3D stable. I've been looking at the overclocking database and tweaking every setting, I've just ran out of ideas on what to change, so I posted a thread.
  10. Have you tried other PCI devices other than sound cards on it?
  11. I have the OCZ Platinum Rev. 2 1GB (2x512MB). It seems that whatever settings I use, CAS 2.5 isn't stable. I'm only running them at 260MHz and 2.7V. What timings can I loosen other than the CAS?

    I see what you mean. But after reading these articles: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article28-page1.html and http://www.silentpcreview.com/article265-page1.html, I feel that the PSU companies are selling us more than need for more profits. The emphasis is always on more and power more, SilentPCReview.com is the only online hardware website I know of that isn't emphasizing more power.

    Is 700W necessary? Does any system actually use that much power? :eek:

    Sub $100 Graphics Card: What to get

    This card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814130004 is only $99.99 after rebate.
  15. The Evercool VC-RE is louder at the same RPM than the stock chipset cooler, but it requires much less RPMs to cool the same as the stock cooler.
