    Stacker 830 Door Clearance

    i used the standoffs that came with the case. no probs with the PCIE slot with them.

    Fresh install - WD Raptor - WinXP

    this is true, but i'd advise against doing that to your system drive

    remote access

    Windows Remote Desktop can do this as well. you can also bring sound to the local computer. if your host's upload speed is decent you can stream music over.

    Big Typhoon setup

    minimod? if you're referring to putting foam in the spaces, i read that thread (or one like it) many moons ago when i first got the BT. so yeah, i put the foam it came boxed in on it when i first got it.

    Running with 2 monitors

    here's a thread i made a while back to show how cool dual monitors can be. now this is not practical for FPS cuz the crosshair lies right at the split of the two monitors, but it looks really cool and makes a great screenshot. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38323

    Big Typhoon setup

    i tried it last night as well and my results are the same as yours. actually, since putting it all back the way it was, i avg 1C more now. oh well, guess i'll have to reseat the HS this weekend.

    it's the same with ATI. my old x800xtpe acted the same as this gtx.

    i thought i read somewhere that you must have a password on the account you're trying to connect to.

    Big Typhoon setup

    on my stacker 830 i've got two 120's on the right of the HSF blowing down on the PWM and GFX areas, so if my CPU fan sucks out, it'll help circulate that cool air coming from outside the mesh grill. you're right though, in other setups it would just make it worse, but because mine's setup the way it is, it just may help.

    Big Typhoon setup

    it's sad dude, she's all checking her forums, banks, ebay, latest stuff from Louis Vuitton. and i'm like, "i'm gonna tinker around inside my comp" and then she says, "what, you don't want to spend time with me?". i felt like charlie brown, was about to yell, "UUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!"

    Big Typhoon setup

    I'll have to do it when i get home from work. Will try it in about 2 hours. edit: As a starting reference. I dual fold at 49/48/38/40. that's cpu,pwm,nf4,gpu respectively while blowing down. i'll post again what the differences are when sucking. totally great oppotunity for a SpaceBalls reference there.

    Big Typhoon setup

    it comes default blowing down, but i'm actually thinking about turning it around. i'd rather suck air away from the RAM and PWM area instead of blowing hot air towards it.

    CPU-Z 1.32 released

    will it finally show my opty as a Denmark?

    quake 4 freezing. . .

    you don't need the patch, it's for implimenting SMP, which your CPU is a single core. First I'd try reinstalling the game. if that doesn't fix it, try reinstalling your vid drivers. after that i don't know what to tell ya. are you trying to play on Ultra Quality? cuz mine will drop back to the desktop if i try it, i have to run on High and turn other stuff either up or on.

    Need help choosing a new CPU

    get whatever's cheapest for the same speed and L2 cache. you'll realize no difference getting an Opteron over an X2 or vice versa. don't get the FX60, that's overpriced and unnecessary. i'd recommend either the Opteron 180 or the X2 4800+ Toledo. they're both the same speed and have the same amount of L2 cache, but he X2 is about 100 bucks cheaper.

    Good LCD monitor comparison/Suggstions?

    i have two Samsung 193P's and love em. i have the 19ms versions so there is a bit of ghosting. they sell 8ms versions of them now i think.

    i smoke cigs and spend about 30 bucks a week on them. starbucks is 3.60 a weekday but i figure i save at least 80 bucks a week since i quit smoking pot. that's hella savings right there.
