Nice build there. Wanted to throw my two cents in. I have been running with a solo case and a completely passive Scythe Ninja for about 6 months now. I dont even have a duct, and the temps are fine. I have an 8800GT in mine, and it is my main gaming machine. I have a single 92MM fan at the front, an...

Check out this case too http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=81600# That usb/power/audio front panel on the top can be swiveled. :D I have made a couple of builds in these, and it is a very nice case.

Yes, Asus did show their version of this at one of the trade shows earlier this year. The MSI and ASUS use a Mini Express card slot in the laptop.

These slots are becoming more available, but if your laptop is more than a year old, its not gonna have it most likely. :cry:

It seems to trade blows with the 7950GT. 7950GT may be a better option, since you can get one completely passive.

If you are considering a 8800 GTX, you really need to look into the length problem. The GTX is about 12 inches long, and there are many cases it just wont fit in. The 8800 GTS on the other hand, is standard length, and should fit whatever...

Nice job there. Are you getting any vibrations from those metal pieces you used to mount the fan on the ninja? Is that back fan mounted with silicone grommets or the like?

Nice sheep :D

Im sure most know, but the GTS is MUCH shorter than the GTX, hence why above poster could fit a GTS in his P150. I have seen elsewhere that the GTX will not fit into a P150....

I have the ASUS A8N-VM CSM, and have had no problems USB or otherwise from the get-go. Hmm. Just lucky I guess. I currently have a Zalman 7000 series on the CPU, and it fits fine with all RAM slots full.

I have the ASUS A8N-VM CSM in my Aspire X-Qpack, and havent had any problems with it. The integrated DVI is nice, eventhough I dont use it. Keep in mind that the TV out is on the motherboard, but there is a separate little tv out "dongle" that you have to purchase to get it going. I dont even use th...

Interesting stuff. I have an EVGA 7600GT CO, that has been rock solid from day one, even with the factory overclock. That KO version of the 7900gt definitely looks nice, with the somewhat custom cooler on it.

It sure would be nice if they could make those so that you could move the "wing" to whatever angle fit best. This may screw with the heatpipe, but it seems like it could be done.

Woah, hold on. Before you try out that other stuff, check your power settings in the control panel... Start, (Settings), Control Panel, Power Options...

Yep, your old power supply should do just fine. I am running a 20 pin 480 Watt Thermaltake into my A64 board, and it runs just fine. I have a A64 3200+, 7600GT, WD Raptor, and 2gb of ram.

7600GT S3 Cooler pics

Does anyone have any pictures of the S3 passive cooler from arctic cooling that is coming out in June? I found one of the S1, but not of the s3. The reason I am asking is that my gaming computer is in an Aspire X-Qpack that slightly limits my cooling options for my new 7600gt. I have also looked int...
