I have an Asus M4A78-E (DDR2 version of pretty much the same board). I tried the M3A78 before, but RMA'ed it 2x because the large heatsink is very unstable (it wobbles like a teeter totter on that tiny little 7mmx5mm chipset with only two plastic pins to hold it and lots of 'wobble space' under the ...

That definition is very similar to the definition I gave. The one I gave was a little simpler and inclusive. The one you give 'isnt always correct'. Consider many of the socialized systems and how that definition doesnt apply. The one thing that gets left out of that definition is that the communit...

A society only succeeds in the long term if there is no under class. I leave it to you to figure out what that means. I have to disagree here. All societies through history have had an underclass of one kind or another and a lot of those societies have thrived for centuries. Some kind of a class/ca...

You'll be needing somewhere to put those gloves then... :lol: Well, I object to being called a right wing bigot. I didnt call you a bigot, merely that you might want to look in the mirror with regards to how bigoted your statements are. If you dont like that, well... then dont make bigoted statemen...

Undertheradar, Isn't this argument about semantics? The Oxford English Dictionary defines Socialism as: "a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the community as a whole should own and control the means of production, distribution and exchange" This is still the ...

Democracy, by definition, is socialism, because we the people decide how to spend our money as a whole, and how much we will spend together or seperate. I don't think this is a valid argument at all - take a look at this article , which nicely explains the different types of democracy. Nowhere that...

Fact of life: the higher the population density, the more liberal government must be. It would appear that you contradict yourself here: If you want conservative government, there are plenty of Central and South American countries, as well as China , Cuba, etc Should China, which has a large popula...

I think you are forgetting that with 'personal freedoms' come alot of 'personal responsibilities and risks'. For instance, if we were all expected to buy our own health care w/o any government regulation or employer support, many would simply go without it because its too expensive. Some would be fi...

Well, the mass media has always had a severe liberal slant... Fox and CNN not being there in the past... they are recent additions, so I thought you would be quite pleased. Then there is the radio... how many Rush's are there? I cant think of too many liberal talk-show hosts... You said it pretty we...

Oh, you mean like CNN and Fox news? Those are more conservative than ever. Not to mention all the radio personalities... more conservatives on the airwaves still.

Actually, as I pointed out, because we are a democracy, or rather, representative republic, we are far to the left anyways. By definition we are socialist, yet the one clear difference between what we have now and communism is that socialism does not take away the individual's ability to achieve... ...

Quote, "What you seem to have forgotten was how the United States used to be! We did not get here by high taxation. We did not get here by making things what you call 'FAIR'." Once again, another person who relies on right-wing propaganda for an education on history. This is not true. Prior to the i...

Most objects in the basement aren't worth much, but items that build equity (investments) usually are taxed (capital gains, property tax, etc). If I had gold bricks in my basement, yes, I would expect to pay taxes on them. This does not 'negate' one's incentive to achieve, as its not so much to actu...

It would seem that the "rich" are already paying most of the taxes... In 2007 the top 25 percent were paying 85 percent of the taxes, when they made only 65 percent of the income... The bottom 50 percent payed only 3 percent of the taxes when they made 13 percent of the income... Here is a hypothet...

Wealth 'redidistribution' is needed to maintain a stable economy, otherwise we see a 'rise to the top' of money and a consolidation of economic power... just like playing monopoly. This is not 'communism', as communism would never allow one to make more than another in the first place. This could be...

Cant find the thread on the oil immersion PSU.

Hello, I was told that SPCR had a thread on how someone modded a PSU to be oil cooled (oil immersion). Not the whole computer, but just the PSU. I am wondering because I am looking to do the same with my own PSU to make it totally fanless/silent. Can someone here link me in the right direction? I se...
