    Re: My Corsair H50 is gettin' replaced

    Can I have it? I want to modify my H50 by combining it with another one. I think I can stack them in one of the harddrive modules in my Antec 900 case.

    Should I get 8Gb ?

    I have 2x2Gb corsair ddr3 1600 in two slots. I can buy 2x4Gb ddr3 2000 for $30. Timings are pretty much identical. My MB will do the ddr3 2000 speed (or so the specs say). Will 8 be better than 4?...

    Ever hear of an open loop geothermal unit?

    After having to pay the bill to water my lawn this summer, I sunk a shallow well in my backyard. There's a very high water table here so I only had to go 40 feet. Even at that low depth I'm still in...

  6. Re: Need some advice on "older" system and today's standards

    No, you're not wrong. Upgrading your system would be pretty pointless. If there's nothing you NEED (I NEED a new roof) then sure get yourself a new toy. You can always re-coup some of your cost via...

    Bought a 1090t

    Found one on Ebay for $150. Swapped out the 965 and ran some tests. I'm able to get 100Mhz more out of the 1090t. Don't really notice any difference. Put my 965 on Ebay and it's already up to $76...

    I ended up with the Corsair TX850V2 as it was on sale for $100 with a $15 rebate. I've got my speed back up to 4Ghz so I'm happy.
    Thanks for the input guys

    Re: 3d Displays

    I guess you missed the part about the projector. That was a 10' screen. I'm sure you can see where the immersion would be lost with a 23"er.

    Re: 2600K and 6970 problems NEW BUILD HELP PLEASE!

    I would start by uninstalling both sets of video drivers and running driver sweeper to get rid of them. Do a fresh install the ATI drivers and see if they work.
