  1. dr_bowtie's recommendation is correct and I would say the same thing as well. First, you need to dismantle the card particularly removing the heatsink systems from the PCB and GPU. Then you need to remove the shroud and remove the fan. Even reference type fans can be re-lubricated.


    It should also look like that. Simply remove the sticker and you should be able to access the bearings inside to apply lubricant. I personally prefer all-purpose mineral oil. Same old used for conventional sewing machines.

  2. Here are the winners


    Grand Prize - Phone call will be made tomorrow between 9am-12PM Pacific Time. Hint, Three people have been picked in case I can't reach anyone. The first two are in the US and the third one is in Australia so if you are in either of those two countries stay close to your phone. Once I have talked to the winner I will announce it.

    Do not expect prizes until after CES so closer to the end of Jan. Some of you may get them sooner but don't expect them in a week.


    Congrats to all the winners and good luck to the winner of the Grand Prize tomorrow.


    Merry Christmas Guys.


    Happy Holidays to all staff and readers!

    May true peace reign on Earth!

    Congratulations to all winners as well! :D

  3. I think this is solved. If you do have an extra sata port, you can simply plug it there (with sata power of course) and you can access the file like it's another partition. Don't worry about the OS, the computer can determine the right pathway or might give you a selection on which OS to use. :) Getting an enclosure is also another option but if you don't really want to use it afterwards, that might be a waste.

  4. I think it's a waste as well particularly if you're using a single monitor. Performance difference wouldn't be that noticeable to the naked eye I believe. GTX 660TI can play any title available today which should include the notorious Crysis 3. GTX 670 and 660TI are also on the same tier (performance wise). Also, it is said that AMD 7xxx graphics would be release this Q1 2013. I am certain NVIDIA will answer the call and compete with their own line around at least late Q1 or early Q2. So rather than upgrade, it would be better to wait for the next series which is likely faster and more efficient in terms of power consumption. :)

  5. Looks fun :) Asian coming through! LOL

  6. Hello OCC Readers and Staff!


    I'm Michael from the Philippines, an economist by profession but ended up working as a website developer. I build websites for a living which includes writing content for it up to setting up the sites. I do a lot of these in a weekly basis. I am also a gamer and PC hardware enthusiast. I've been reading a lot of stuff from OCC before particularly the reviews that help me select hardware I want to buy. Never really thought of joining the forums until today.

    Looking forward to share fun and knowledge with everybody.


    Good day everyone!

    Michael - najiro
