Did you ever resolve this? I notice that my Dell D400 laptop and wife's Dell D505 laptop will not use SpeedStep with Vista. All patches have been applied and even if I install SP1 final it will not work. Runs full speed all the time and therefore cuts down quite a bit on battery time.

I don't agree at all. I was very disappointed with the case. From it's flawed design to it's weight to it's poor cooling. I ended up getting a Nine Hundred afterwards and was much happier.

The revisions weren't an improvement at all either. The lower chamber is just a sheer joke to me.

Re: Corsair HX520 buzz/whine issues (other PSUs discussed to

I would be *extremely* grateful if Corsair 520W owners would tell me if their unit generates any buzz/cricket/tick/whine/etc sound when idle or CPU/VGA under load or even when the mouse scroll wheel or keyboard is used to scroll web pages. No, my HX520 is completely silent. The loudest thing in my ...

For a similar price, you could get the Corsair 520HX which is a much better choice and is still way more than you'll need. Edit: Sorry, I just noticed you already bought it, but 650 watts is overkill . There is more than enough current in that PSU for your system. I agree on that. Unfortunately wit...

I actually had this case for a few months and then switched to a Antec Sonata II because the P180 was just too heavy. Well, the Sonata II was nothing for cooling so I switched back recently. I found it best to have the upper 120mm fan as intake and the rear 120mm fan as exhaust. It helps bring in ni...

I had a P180, gave it to my wife as a hand-me-down because I didn't like a few things about it. The silicone feet reduce vibration but I grew to not like them with as much as I'd tinker inside my PC. I also didn't like that the front door warped quite a bit. I've read that the latest versions have i...

I belive all P180 is shipped with frontdoor in 3 layers now since the warping door problem came up. Not special for P180B Open PCI-brackets is probibly now going to raise the soundlevel noticable since you already got directpath to noise at the back and that metal doesn't stop much sound. So only "...

Those things are so bright though. To have them flickering would annoy me quite a bit.

I could tell that wasn't a TP2.0 at all from the picture. Anyway, AntecRep, any idea when the NSK6500 will be available in US online stores like NewEgg? I see the rest there but I want the NSK6500 badly.
