Re: Upgrade fail, could use some advice...

I know you said you didn't want to cut up the drive cage, but... It sounds like you were thinking about removing the entire drive cage when cutting just a tiny portion might make the card fit.

Re: Mini ITX case M350 cooler

On my M350 case, I just glued some rubber grommets to the corners of a 120mm fan, hooked it up at 5V and just placed it on top of the case. (Not mounted, but I don't move it around so it's fine.)

Cordis, you mentioned that it was basically a case swap, so I assume that you moved the PSU over too? It's the only other variable I could think of. If you didn't, that's something to think about.

If you did move the PSU too, nvm. :)

For interference from cell phones, just get a small anti-static bag and put the phone on top. It's usually enough to stop most speakers from picking up the buzzing noise. It may reduce your reception slightly, but shouldn't keep you from getting a signal altogether. If it's still bad, you could try ...

The anti-static bags that PC parts come in is actually pretty good at blocking these kinds of interference.

You can try to put some bags between the speaker and the router and see if that helps. Not the prettiest solution, but it should work.

For bigger bags, usually video cards come in big bags.

But they won't be mounted at all, and I'm not sure you'd want it packed that tightly considering the components do give off some...

Unfortunately, my UPS went down a few days ago and 2 of my main folding rigs shutoff, resulting in a massive drop in points. When I went to power them back on, one of them wouldn't turn back on. :( Not sure if it's the motherboard or PSU, haven't had time to swap stuff out yet.

It seems more likely that Asus is just trying to get rid of the older cores than developing new. I haven't seen it stated anywhere that memory bandwidth was a factor for folding performance. So it is likely that it's no faster than the 384mb version, since it has the same 96 stream processors. At le...

It's the 55nm version. You can tell by the model number. 1255 is a 55nm part. With that said, Newegg has the same card for $179.99 - $30 mail in rebate = $149.99 So about $20 difference in price. Whether it's worth the risk of dealing with a recertified card or not, is upto you. Also, the warranty i...
