  1. Re: What do you pick - E21xx OR E7200 OR Others, and what RAM?

    I have a question about aftermarket coolers. How useful are they price/performance-wise?

    Currently I don't plan to use aftermarket coolers because (1) it seems to be against my purpose (making a...

    What do you pick - E21xx OR E7200 OR Others, and what RAM?

    I'm a budget overclocker. I'm also a price/performance geek.
    My current pick is E21xx which is very cheap and can overclock to 3.0Ghz...
  3. Re: When you buy a PSU, you must buy twice as much as you need!!

    What degree is classified as "hot" in this case? Different products have different temperate tolerant rate.

    Max 75W for...
  4. Re: When you buy a PSU, you must buy twice as much as you need!!

    Well I am a budget overclocker. I will overclock my CPU E2180 to 3.0Ghz using a stock fan, my graphic card (simply to get some free juice), and tighten the timings of my RAM (again I like free...
  5. Re: When you buy a PSU, you must buy twice as much as you need!!

    Sorry for my ignorance. What do you mean by "fold" here?

    Do you keep your computer on simply because you want to use your computer immediately when you wake up? :p Well, it's a waste of Earth...

    The only purpose I could think of is because your computer is acted as a server.
  7. Re: When you buy a PSU, you must buy twice as much as you need!!

    Yes but it's only for low-watt system. They won't be able to feed mid/high-watt system.
    But I wouldn't recommend it even for low-watt system.




    It is necessary to add extra headroom to ensure...

    If I understand correctly, a drop in Amp/watt won't kill the component. It just shut my computer down (completely black), or reboot out of the blue.

    If it's the drop in voltage, it will damage my...

    Don't bother. It's said by an anonymous from a rogue page.
    It claims most will make the same advice as me. So it is very likely it's only loads of BS and baloney. ;P

    Re: Power Supply: Buy cheap or Future-Proof?

    I'm a bit worried about the use of adapters of high-current supply. Those seems to be high-current supply:
    * 24-pin ATX main power cable
    * 4-pin CPU cable
    * 8-pin CPU cable
    * 6-pin PCI Express...

    Should I buy a more powerful power supply (for future-proof) or should I simply buy what I need?

  15. Re: How to select my best graphic card/LCD monitor

    I came across this article on some day:


    That would be why modern games are so graphic-intensive that it pushs the graphic cards so hard - game coders are too lazy to efficiently optimize graphic...
  16. Re: Overclocking, FSB / RAM limits - are they important?

    Good news since I'm open to more choices. :)
    For example I don't need to select DDR2 1066 because I want to overclock my DDR2 800 a bit and so on.



    So far I have the following options:

  19. Re: How to select my best graphic card/LCD monitor

    I have several questions.

    First isn't the dual-core CPU enough to run a HD video? Even 1 core is occupied with decoding, the other core is here to take up other tasks.

    Furthermore, I wonder...
  20. Re: How to select my best graphic card/LCD monitor

    I haven't made up my minds yet. 8600GT is not my optimal pick. Actually I feel 8600GT is still expensive. I would prefer the price range of 8500GT and 8600GT performance, but I couldn't find...
  21. Re: How to select my best graphic card/LCD monitor

    Thanks for your comments. Here's mine.
