Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gaming Build Guide #3: BitFenix Prodigy E

Samsung 850 EVO SSDs are now available. In terms of both pricing and performance it slots in between 840 EVO & 850 PRO. It should be worthy of consideration as an alternative.

The 2600pro has powerplay too, and however the Club3D 2600pro card that smilingcrow had did not support it... So not all manufactures are implementing the powerplay feature in their designs even if the chip itself supports it. According to ATI, for desktop cards, only the 3000 series support PowerP...

I can never understand the logic behind a DDR2/3 combo motherboard. DDR3 price is still so much more $$$ than DDR2. By the time DDR3 is cheaper than DDR2, it's probably time to upgrade the system with a new CPU & motherboard anyways.

I chose that mobo because it has almost everything I need but very few of the things I don't - and it gives me the opportunity to use DDR3 in the future. DDR3 upgrade path isn't a good reason at all: 1) Since you don't plan to overclock, DDR3 will have yield a bare minimal performance gain. 2) For ...

Cooling an Athlon X2 3600+ with a U120 eXtreme passively?

Do you guys think I cool an Athlon X2 3600+ (Brisbane core, 65W) with a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme passively in an Antec Solo case, provided that I use an intake fan in the front & an exhaust fan in the back? This machine will basically be just a file server, idle with CnQ kicking in for 90% of ...

<offtopic> I'd rather have oversteer with working steering, really. That's what ABS is about too, working steering, and you'll want your grip to work for it to do its job. It'll have to be a sideways breaking situation, crap tyres or reckless driving to get you into fishtailing or slides just becau...

<off topic, more on tires> Better tires in front = more grip in the front than the rear. While this may sound desirable because it gives the steering tires more grip, it's actually dangerous. That is because when you slip, the rear tires will lose grip first, which will lead to fishtailing (over-ste...

Sorry about that. I did read that the testers used the Rightmark tool but I didn't realize it was for testing quality and that a high score meant quality (sound). My fault and sorry to waste people's time and provoke concern about the board. I still think I did read about an issue or I may have con...

With that many HDD, if you want the main system to be quiet with good air flow, you should consider putting some of them in an external RAID enclosure.
