Um, i don't mean to be anal or anything, but a 3700AMB is not a Sonata, they're two different series of case. In the Sonata, the hard drive mounting drawers are oriented sideways... just so u know! :) You might want to look into suspending your hard drives, i believe there is an extensive thread dea...

As best as i can understand, the Saitek Eclipse is a second iteration of the Gamer's Keyboard. In the Gamer's, the lights did not show through the keys, just around them. It also cames with a little extra keypad which can be customised, but is of limited convenience as it's not cordless. i don't thi...

All it means is that EDC/ECC is working correctly. If you really want to see how well it compares... Well, i don't really need to know that, as they perform quite well enough for me. If something they have makes them work perfectly, I have no problems with that. Just for interest, here's the info f...

All of this has me quite convinced that i should endeavour NEVER to listen to extremely high-level audio equipment, lest i become perennially unsatisfied to be stuck with anything that I can actually afford. Just so you know, i run Logitech Z-680's. I've read what's been said about them in other thr...

IceWind, i've said this before, but i LOVE your Night Wind case. Anyway, about the airflow... Alot of people are saying to tape up the holes around the optical drives to prevent the dust, but if i read you correctly, this is just a symptom of the problem that your system can't quite breathe properly...

I have a Lite-On CD-RW Drive and a Lite-On DVD-RW Drive. I ran some tests on them with that Nero program (Drivespeed?) including the Digital Audio Extraction test, where you burn a test CD full of purpose-made errors, then read it back, comparing against a desired result. My drives both scored perfe...

Awesome. Great glossy paint job, I can see your house!
Now i feel inspired to do something to my own sonata.

For some reason, I cannot load the page at HardForum. What controller thingo is that, in between your optical drives?

Hi, no great deal of experience on my part, but... For all those trying to find the purest water possible, I've read somewhere that this actually makes the system MORE susceptible to galvanic corrosion, as the water will more readily accept ions from the metal components. So perhaps tap water is wha...
