    hehe :D. I had to google where they come from. It stands for "Golden Emperor International Ltd." and the company is located in Taipeh/ Taiwan.

    I spent nearly the whole night photografing and working on the photos to sell some hardware at ebay.

    02 4890 1200 02.jpg

    I hope i will get enough money to afford two 360 x 120 x 60 mm radiators and some sheet-metal for the "Thai-Chi" project.

    Arima HDAMA-I ordered and paid expected delivery 3-4days well if we exclude the week end i should receive it by next Wednesday or Thursday

    14.95€ + 9.99€ std int shipping ... i have seen worse ... :D well as long as it doesn't exceed 62.50chf : no custom taxes :clap:

    woops i thought you already known it ... tho it make a funny wordplay for Swiss and German people

    no shit ...
    http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/591/Intel_Core_2_Duo_E6300_vs_Intel_Core_2_Duo_E6700.html
    not showing benchies ... but still ... if my DC7700P handle the 6700 that might be a good upgrade (if we can talk about upgrade in that ...) i found one for 12chf + 2chf delivery, still checking my financial status if i can take it (yep even 14chf is hard till the end of april)

    http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/390/Intel_Core_2_Duo_E6700_vs_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_E6700.html

    eh ... pentium DC 6700 are stronger than C2D 6700 i guess its from the higher clock

    too bad Pentium DC are harder to find than C2D :D

    ok logical pent DC are more recent : 2010 instead of 2006 and die shrink + less L2 cache higher frequencies and higher max temp ... tho i wonder why i cant find any of them

    not a bad thing i suspect that the board wouldn't handle it, even if its also a skt775/fsb1066

    I never really cared about where the company was located and what GEIL stands for. I had the slight idea they were an US-company.
    And the wordplay, come on, its only the first time funny ;).

    Trouble with that is we would have to follow the TPU guide lines and post in the "For Sale" forum.

    We started to do that in the World Community Grid forum and got that shut down right away.

    It would be tough to manage a for sale thread with multiple posters I would imagine. If the original poster was a moderator it would be a ton easier.

    Guidelines are followed by moderators only when it's their advantage. We want to do something nice for others but if they cant take advantage of it then they going to shut us down.

    Yesterday a parcel with 5 older graphic cards came in. Nothing really exciting. I just wanted the VLB- card for the 486er.

    miro Crystal 10SD 1200.JPG

    Trident TVGA8900CL, ISA 1200.JPG Trident TVGA9000B, ISA 1200.jpg Western Digital WD90C30-LR, 1200.JPG Cirrus Logic CL5420-V5 ISA 1200.jpg

    I saw the Canopus Voodoo-Graphics Card had a fan installed, and as the miro has the same pcb,
    I put a fan on a miro HISCORE 3D. Maybe it helps and the card lives a bit longer.

    miro HISCORE 3D 1200 03.jpg

    A thing I have to invent, Voodoo Graphics Quad SLI ... :p

    The AWE64 Gold is a pretty fine card.

    CREATIVE Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold, CT4390 1200 01.JPG

    My favourites are:

    TerraTec Maestro 3296, ISA 1200.JPG

    TerraTec EWS64 XL, 1200.JPG

    Advanced Gravis ULTRASOUND MAX 2.1, 1200.JPG

    these are ISA- Cards, my absolute favourite is the PCI TerraTec DMX 6fire 24/96.

    Damn nice photography also Backfire!!

    What are you using for your background? And what lighting are you using?

    I also like the style of font your using on them. Pretty classy looking.

    Hehe, I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 digicam and the background is a white sheet of thick paper. The lighting is various, from an officedesk- lamp up to two 100W halogen spots.
    The magic is the software. I'musing IrfanView & PhotoScape which are both freeware. I'll show you a picture as it comes from the camera.

    demo 800.jpg

    I just reduced the size to 800px width.

    edit: the name of the font in the upper left corner is "neuropol", the name of the font for the "Backfire" sign is "flexsteel".

    Wow, I'll have to check into the software!
    I am using a Lumix DMC-FZ40. Very awesome camera. Got a smoking deal on it from one of the local members T_ski here on TPU.
