    When you use veggie oil to cool your processor because you want to prove a point.

    When you consider moving into an area with a cheap cost of living so you can afford better computer parts.

    When you reply to this post:

    With this post:

    Go to Moira - she can supply your Megaton house with the Infirmary, provided you got enough bottle caps to pay. Anyway the infirmary will cure your radiation in a jiffy.
    If you don't have enough bottle caps, rad-x and radaway will help.
    Or get rid of that CRT and get an LCD. :)

    I've been using lcds for about half a year now. I swear when I switched from the CRT to the LCD I felt physically better, as if my health improved.

    I know I rarely get headaches now, with the CRT it was about two a week.
    Maybe there is validity to your claims.

    *you actually consider purchasing a 3rd high-end GPU, even though that 3rd, unused PCIE slot would only run at x4 . . . . . . . . (someone please talk me out of it :p)

    *you put aside your case side panel cause you had it off too often . . . and now can't find it.


    *the local power company sends you a Christmas card with a thank you note

    You know your hardcore ....

    ... when you set unstable settings in conjunction with the power on timer in your bios to use as an alarm clock. You really enjoy the sound of a case speaker when you wake up in the morning.

    ... when you find a USB powered coffee maker and set your power on timer in your bios so you can enjoy coffee with your TPU time in the morning.

    no, it does not. the x38 has 32 lanes that can split into 16/16 but not 16/8/8 and the other pcie that he is talking about is running on 4 lanes of the southbrige

    this applies to me


    You know you are a hardcore TPU fan when you wake up ten minutes earlier in the morning to check the forums before heading off to work and starting your day.

    BTW this is completely true, I really do this :D
