OrigenAE S10V vs Moneual Monocaso 320 vs Chieftec HM-03

Hi, Started looking at a HTPC build. Think I've narrowed the case down to OrigenAE S10V Moneual 320 Chieftec HM-03 My main restriction is where the case would be placed - the unit has a shelf height of just under 14cm and depth of 45cm, so likes of Antec Fusion Remote are out. I've discounted the li...

Wouldn't that indicate your power monitor is not functioning very well? Maybe I didn't explain it too well :) When the pc is powered off - there's a 30w draw still occurring. When the psu rocker is switched off - there is a 9w power draw shown When the socket is switched off (or the psu cable is re...

Re: GPL

Cool another GPL lover! That is the only game installed on my PC. Pretty much the same here.....have had others on, but always back to GPL in a short time. Do you race in any leagues ? What cpu is in your brothers system ? Has he run any of the mods and at what resolution is it running at ? I've ac...

Usually AMD is the way to go for a low budget machine. I'm not really up to date on the current situation, but a few months ago 780G and a 45W X2 would be the given choice. Thanks for that, and the others that replied. You're a lot nearer to being uptodate than I am :) I'll be looking into 780g chi...

new build for old game

Hi, Due to a slight mishap with my current system (Abit NF7-S, AMD XP1700+ , 1GB ram & FX5600) - it kind-of started a mini firework display. I need to replace at least the motherboard.

Hello and.......

Hi to all I'm in the process of thinking - yep it'll probably be a long while yet - about building a wood case. One of the many things I'm not sure on is - what type of momentary switch do I need ? Is it SPNO and what is the min/max voltage/ampage or whatever required ? Reason for going wood is that...
