Any sign of the i-RAM 2?

It's been a while since I've heard mention of the i-RAM 2 - supposed to use SATA 3 Gb/s, DDR2, and so on. The few articles I can find say it'll be released in February 2006 (ahahahaha). The original i-RAM seems to have shot up in price... the 2 looks like it'd be perfect, if it ever comes out. Anyon...

How can I return my S12-380?

I've been having coil buzz problems with my Seasonic S12-380; for some reson, it's perfectly silent at high load, but makes a very loud and very worrying buzz otherwise. Just running Folding all the time is perfectly fine during the winter, but now that it's warming up I don't want 150+ watts pumpin...

GPU load testing on Linux

I've been struggling to find a way to do a maximal load test on my video card. The canonical program, RTHDRIBL, doesn't work on Linux; the only other option seems to be a high-end game of some sort. But I found this yesterday: GPU Quaternion Ray Tracer It's a massive GPU load (brings my 7800GT to a ...

I'm working on cooling my 7800GT with a ZM80D-HP... With my case and mobo, there are two available PCI slots above and another 2 or 3 below (depending on if I install the extra bracket with 2xUSB and status LEDs). The plan is to leave all the slot covers open, and then have a 5v or 7v Yate Loon righ...

Aerocool VM-102: Availability in US?

Does anyone know where to get the new VM-102 in the US? It looks like exactly what I want, but I can't find any retailers outside of Europe that have them. It's not even listed on Aerocool's US web site.

Suggestions, anyone?

High-pitched whine at low load with S12-380

I just built my silent dream system (Antec P180, Seasonic S12-380) and it's great, most of the time. However, I'm having some problems with the PSU; when the CPU is heavily loaded, there is no noise out of the power supply, but when it's idling there's a soft buzz/whine. I've narrowed it down to the...
