    Yea that shit is really clean. I pretty much have no cable management at all so it looks like god-given to me :D

    Actually, I think I'll work on my cable management right now!

    Awesome. Very clean.

    Just finished dusting and doing some cable management. It still needs some work, but the Storm Scout really doesn't have the best management. An improvement for sure. I took pics but cannot find the USB cord :(

    Well I got a killer deal on a IBM Thinkpad T60. It has a dual core CPU with 2gb DDR2 and a ATI x1400 video card. When i found it, the guy told me that it would power on and boot but when he would install windows it would freeze at 80% everytime but he got ubuntu to install. He only wanted 80$ Shipped for this laptop and brand new this thing is probly worth atleast 300$ give or take. So once it arrived it installed windows perfectly on my 160GB sata drive but after windows would boot it would freeze after about 2 minutes of use. Well at first i thought it could be a memory issue so i downloaded memtest86 and let it run for like 3 hours and got no errors so then i started googling around and come to find out alot of people were having this problem. also i wanted to mention that the battery was dead and will not charge. so in this thread they figured out that the main problem was the dead battery. For some reason when the laptop would boot into windows, windows would try to initalize the battery status and once it tried it would freeze since the battery was dead. so i unplugged everything and took the battery out and just used the straight AC cord and BAM! worked like a charm! i used it for a while today installing drivers and such without no issues. im going to order a battery for it in a couple of days and get it working great for my wife since she lost her netbook! here is a screen shot of me useing prime95 and cpuz. the temps are crazy on this laptop, does anyone elses laptop get this hot at full load?

    On another note i got my buttstock for my WASR-10 (AK47) the other day! thought i would post it as well

    Some sleeved extensions, mainly for your 24 pin, and some sleeving for the front panel connectors, and you're golden. :D

    mine gets close to that hot but not quite, 100% load is around 80 degrees.

    still mine is an i5 clocked a bit higher than yours, you temps do seem high.

    Im pretty sure HD5850 and CrosshairIV Formula were designed to look so sexy with eachother.

    I love the Red and Black theme i have going, HD5850, CrosshairIV, FalconII, G-Skills, SataCables... Me thinks a second HD5850 when the 6 series hits :D

    it "should" be able to do it though, they use 15-180w each, thats 450-540w in total, and then 125 from cpu, thats 675 max, and a little extra, then youre at 700w :laugh:

    Only got 4x 6pin + 1x 8pin.

    I don't like the scaling though, i'd rather just stick with two and be damn happy :D
