Re: Zalman goes bankrupt

They should have played the Xerox game and just copied successful, silent designs like every other successful company does when someone has a better idea. That and they needed better fans because I have had more Zalman fans fail me than any other brand. Currently have to replace the fan on my CNPS70...

Any watt results for a Phenom 9750 125w locked to 1 core?

I was wondering if anyone locked a Phenom 9750 125w CPU down to 1 core and if so, what are the wattage results. I have an MSI 785GTM-E45 with this CPU on it and since it's going to be n HTPC anyways, I figure a single-core won't hurt but with the design flaw of MSI's 3+1 phase voltage circuitry, I'm...

Re: Cannot locate low profile pci ATSC tuner. Need help

Low bitrate 720P, yes. True 720P rip. . . LOL. That answer that for you? The single channel memory controller as always, doesn't help things with the GMA 950 IGP and while I can OC the Atom to a whopping 1.7ghz without the occasional BSOD and reboot, that doesn't exactly help from what I have seen. ...

Re: Blown inductor - repair feasible? (HD3870)

If everything still seems stable, you need to find out why this happened so it doesn't come back in spades. It is possible and it has happened that this is due to faulty solder joints causing arcing but the other possibility is a sever surge due to faulty components up the line. You want to make sur...

And the video cards NewEgg has are either old and insanely overpriced or too new and have HDMI and not Svideo like I need.
