    Yeah, and that's with MX-2. As well RAM sinks on the back mem chips. I used the other ram sinks on the VRMs to keep them cool. As they won't work with the stock cooler on the other mem chips.

    That cooler works okay. Enough to get the job done anyways.

    It really depends on the scratches you're trying to remove. if you have a huge, deep scratch you'll lose an arm trying to sand it out. I've started with 80 grit on heatsinks before because they were so bad to start with.

    Well, here's my man cave as of about 5 minutes ago, playing metro 2033. Terrible game. I am uninstalling it promptly. :)

    I am buying more lava lamps, another plasma ball and some neon signs, as well as disco/christmas lights. :toast: :rockout: :cool: gotta have the right atmosphere for your mancave... :laugh:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    You can use them with Wcg now. I have one xfx 5770 in one of my crunchers and it got 12 betas yesterday and tore through them like nothing, 0.03 per result. :toast:

    just so you know an anti static bag protects its innards from harm by allowing the electricity to ride along the outside of the bag......puting your mobo on it is no different than putting it on tin-foil

    New lappy after 6 months of owning my other one. I gave it to my mother since I'm amazingly nice.

    My rig is still incomplete. Waiting for Corsair H100 and another GTX670 for SLI.

    Mesh side panel is good for ventilation, plus you don't have to worry about anyone seeing how messy it is inside;)
