Re: Small laser printer that doesnt curl paper?

in the professional printing word, large printers only buy paper rated at certain, measured moisture content, so they can optimize their printing runs for maximum speed/ quality. they will return truck loads of paper that is not within their specified moisture specs.

Re: SilverStone Raven RVZ02 Slim Tower

nice review mr lee! this case is on my short list (along with the one below). I'd be grateful for any thoughts or suggestions. this one looks like it has gpu and cpu on top, and psu on bottom, so it might be better suited to horizontal. http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/origin-gaming-ces-2016/

Re: Troublesome mini-ITX

So of that 5.8C difference I guess that 1C might be from the PSU and the other 4.8C might be from the air already pulled through the case? when i took the reading the PSU was sitting on my desk, outside of the case. it was pulling in only ambient room temp air. -measuring PSU heat only. @ OP, how m...

I will admit, I have not. but with a lowly gtx750 and i3 running on a 500 watt sfx-l silverstone, the PSU (removed from case) is dumping out 28.5c in a 22.7 room.

Re: Troublesome mini-ITX

under load you are using mostly hot air from the psu to cool the CPU.

simple fix would be to reverse fan direction.

Re: Anyone tryed 2 psu setup with add2psu?

I doubt any 250 watt passive PSU would have enough actual 12v amperage to run any oc's gtx 9xxti (unicorns!).

Why do so many people want a fanless PSU, only to have it run a difficult too cool CPU and screaming GPU??!?! :? :? :?

Re: how quiet are water pumps

if the rads are big, that's kinda one of my main points. ( id consider your rad, 'cadillac' sized when comparing to AIO)
still, 500+ watts with no pump and no fans, we'd all love to see it!
