  1. Thanks :nod: The SI-120 looks better and has a bigger fan than the XP-90, so unless the XP-90 cools significantly better, I think I'll go with the SI-120. Not for a while, though, I have no money.
  2. It'll fit, just keep in mind that copper is a helluva lot heavier than aluminium. I saw in another thread that the XP-90 is reccomended but the XP-90c is not, because the extra weight, if left unsupported, will cause the HS to pull away from the CPU. This has nothing to do with the RAM slots but it's good to know.
  3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16835109123 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16835108037 Both of these look excellent, so I'm having a bit of a hard time deciding. What are the advantages vs disadvantages of each? Also, will I have everything I need (besides the AS5 of course) to mount these?
  4. Thank you very much TGM! :nod: About the CPU fan, I think it's working just fine. It just feels like it should be running faster, but as I said the HS is relatively cool to the touch, and according to aida32 it's running at about 41 C. I'm still going to upgrade someday, to close that aforementioned gap. That's good to know about the compressor bit. My case isn't actually as dusty as it looks (bad lighting in the pic) but in a month it will be. 18" is really long for what I need, do they come any shorter? Do you have any suggestions for what to do with the excess? Last but not least, would this product do what I need as far as holding the HS on? If so, I am going to order it probably soon. Will I be alright for a few days? In the mean time, would I keep that card cooler with the case open or closed?
  5. Alright, then, how much would you charge to come over and tidy up the wiring in my PC? By the way, how old are you? Alright, here's the inside of my rig: I've come accross a few problems now that I've been up and running a bit: 1. I'm not satisfied with the power of the CPU fan. The heat sink is cool to the touch so it must be doing its job, yet it seems to be moving ridiculously slow. I'm planning on getting a new heat sink and fan, preferably something stylish. 2. I only have one PATA HDD, so the second connector on the IDE cable gets in the way. What I should do is plug the HDD into the plug closest to the motherboard plug. But I'd rather get another SATA HDD and scrap the PATA. The thing is almost six years old. 3. One of the small heat sinks on my video card fell off and I'm not sure how to readhere it. That section of the card is noticeably hotter than the rest of it. 4. My dad's Dell is a minute and ten faster than me in the 32M Super Pi challenge and I want to close that gap.
  6. Mine? Scroll up a bit (or just click this) http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y40/akai-suisei/desktop.jpg
  7. Would you say it's possible sometime down the line for a graphics card to utilize all 16 lanes of bandwidth?
  8. lol, you blocked out all the torrents :shake:
  9. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y40/akai-suisei/desktop.jpg :nod:
  10. So you're saying you left yours on for several years? That's pertty awesome, what OS was it running on at the time?
  11. Does the Nf4 even support Dell's quad SLI?
  12. Anyone here keep track of their maximum uptimes? I actually did see a thread about this when I searched, but it was really old and I didn't want to revive a dead thread. Anyway, I'm basically wondering, not keeping electricity in mind, how much uptime can my rig handle at a time? Why should I ever reboot for that matter? Also, I have a program called maxmem which flushes whatever builds up in my RAM so that isn't an issue either.
  13. Oh, Target. Far cry from David Marks :shake: Are you using a mouse or trackball? I can't see how a mouse would have enough room on any keyboard tray, but I like my trackball because it doesn't require any room at all. Speaking of trackballs, is there any way to lubricate the ball? I've seen trackballs that move smoothy, with ball bearings in the socket, but as this is a Microsoft, it doesn't. it's just plastic against plastic. I really like the design of it, though, so I'd rather not have to buy a new one.
  14. That's a nice looking desk, is that hand made? It looks like something Norm Abram or David Marks would make. I can't tell from the picture, but is that cherry?
  15. I think this is a good point that some people really need to grasp. If your post says "it's not on the reccomended list, but...", 99.9% of the time you're wasting your time in waiting for an answer. I don't think I've seen a single instance on this entire thread where someone said "it's not on the reccomended list but it looks good" and the mods agreed. I'm admittedly still a rookie on this forum, but this will definitely save you some hassle. As David said, stick with the "A" list. :nod:
  16. That looks pretty awesome. What's the bottom section for?

  18. I think you misunderstood my post. I was saying that not plugging in the 4-pin on my old motherboard caused it to crash and freeze several times a day.
  19. John Septem is a character in a series of movies I'm writing. In 2127, he forms a rebel alliance called Atra and declares independence and war on the corrupt NATO. Septem (whose last name is derived from the Latin word for "Seven") holds many titles, including Provost-General, Fleet Admiral, Commander-in-Chief, and Prime Minister. After sustaining severe injury when a thug fired a panzerfaust at him, John Septem had a computer installed into his brain along with robotic eyes. This computer fused with his brain in an unexpected way, allowing John the processing speed, memory retention, and accuracy of a computer, with the wisdom, intelligence, and self-evidence of his own soul. Since the incident, John Septem speaks every language known to man, is capable of performing extremely complex mathmatical equations in nanoseconds, and can respond to situations before they are even evident, to others, to have arisen. If the computer ever goes offline, John Septem, his brain attempting to think as it always has but now unassisted by the CPU, will die of cerebral overexhertion.
