P43 mobo: GA-EP43-DS3L

Hello, just letting you know that my Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3L Rev 1.0, BIOS: F4 does NOT support fan voltage regulation at all.

Astonishingly, perhaps because so much traffic comes from search engines, publishing new articles infrequently doesn't impact unique visitor traffic much, tho pageviews can go up. I recall a crazy-busy crisis period some time ago when no new articles were posted for over 2 weeks -- and traffic patt...

I was quite astonished to see how so very few people donated that much money, and how little that is compared to all unique visitors to the site. 153 individuals is really a lot less than what I expected... And the money is indeed a lot more than what I expected. Dollars are so cheap that I was con...

Well I just figured, after you show Ms Celebrity your fan collection, her manager will realise the untapped potential in the PC enthusiast market.

It's an easy choice between a Fatal1ty model or a SJ model. :)

Maybe you can cut their silhouettes into the inner wall of the floating chamber? That will make SPCR quite the fansite... (Excuse the horrible pun.)

Gillian, I was quite astonished to see how so very few people donated that much money, and how little that is compared to all unique visitors to the site. 153 individuals is really a lot less than what I expected...

AM2 heatsinks into NSK2400

For those of you who don't already know, the Thermalright XP series and the usual others can now be used with the AM2 RM (Rev. B) AM2 adapter. Too bad thermalright is so extremely expensive. If arctic cooling made the same stuff they would be $30 or less. Funny you can get a Seasonic 330 for less th...
