  1. I would say try it both ways. If you use it as an intake, the air you're pulling through the rad is going to be cooler than what would be flowing through the rad from inside of the case if it's set as exhaust. On the contrary, as intake, you'd be pulling air into the case that's been heated by the radiator on its way in, raising the "system" temp. Either could work out - would you prefer better CPU/loop temps or better system temps (HDD, GPU, RAM, etc)

  2. Damn it's time for a higher reading spedometer!




    Lol anything over 110mph is right-on terrifying with blown suspension and sloppy bushings everywhere, haha. Have had it buried only twice since I've had it and never maintained the speed


    Holy crap. Lol. That would make even my Cobalt cry.


    It's fun as hell :D Pleeease can we turbo the miata pleaasee :teehee:

  3. How do you not make power up high with the turbo? Run out of flow so it kills efficiency?



    With the low power and close gears the extra RPM is helpful.


    Oh no, it would keep pulling up that high. I couldn't make that turbo run out of breath if I tried. Maybe at 40 psi, but stuff would start breaking before that. :teehee: I was just saying that once the turbo is spooled, the powerband is nice and flat all the way across from about 4200 and up - so no need to keep it in gear and stress stuff when I can grab 4th (so to speak) and have the same power at lower RPMs that are nicer to my engine :)


    I shifted here around 6800, but eh it gets the idea. Low four-second 60-100mph ftw :D


    FYI volume is brutal so watch the speakers, Galaxy Nexus doesn't seem to like loud noises.


  4. These coolers have some very close similarities to Noctua though. The mounting systems are identical - but that doesn't mean that they just used the same OEM. However, the Noctua D14 and the Phanteks PH-TC14PE are also very similar...


    Regardless, yes - Phanteks now reigns above all other heatsink manufacturers in my book when it comes to performance.

  5. You can always drive the tiger too if you are too scared to drive your one wheel peel machine. hahaha :lol:


    Haha. It's only a 1-wheel-peel machine if I let it be. I like the control I get with an open diff. If anything the stock/blown suspension is what would make my car sad on the track, luls.


    Building a cold air intake, eh? DO IT WITH PVC, GHETTO MOD OF THE YEAR! Lol, looking forward to seeing the interior.

  6. Why lean it out though? Does it run too rich from factory? I feel that both leaning it out and retarding timing in efforts to reduce pinging would be like reducing clock speed and increasing voltage to reduce CPU temp

  7. Been getting a few of these lately and they're quite annoying, I'm guessing it's not just me! I'll click on a topic on the home page, and then all of the sudden the soundtrack for the ad starts blaring from the home page in the background.






    Please no one say "use adblock" :P

  8. These things are nasty. They used to be a pain to get rid of a few years ago, and have since gotten even smarter and bury themselves even further than they used to.


    Almost all of these (and probably this one too) will re-associate the *.exe extension with this software, making it impossible to even run something like regedit, cmd, even task manager/etc.


    I hope this crap is against the law somewhere. It's fraud!
