    Yeah, I mean, using distilled isn't bad..but discolouration of the water is just gonna happen. Yet I always see people mention they distilled is their coolant of choice...to me, it's a high-maintanence fluid.


    The only issue with that is that some stuff the coolant picks up is going to affect cooling ability, and sometimes, say if there was a pile af gunk in one spot, using distilled may spread it over the entire loop.

    Personally, I just use tap water. Every six months, blocks get pulled, and they get CLR'd.

    I understand the whole kid thing...but hte only pets I got are fish! :p


    and no..my typing sucks becuase my keyboard cannot hadle how fast I type. It's better than the last one...

    I had shoulder surgery again back a few months ago, and jsut got use of my arm back a coupel of weeks ago...I had been typing with one hand for like 6 months, which slowed me down a fair bit. NOw I'm back up to my 160 WPM crap, and my keyboard doesn't like it.

    I need a really good mechanical..maybe at the end of the month Iwill treat myself!

    You really should treat yourself, you deserve it! :p
    Keyboards with Cherry MX have been cheap on Newegg for a while. I believe you can pick up one of the CM Storm keyboards for around $60.

    Price isn't my real consideration. I spend a lot of time typing each day, so a keyboard is something that I am more than willing to spend a few hundred on, if the cost is jsutified by features.

    I need huge n-key rollever, like 25-30 keys

    That's a statement I can respect.

    No idea what that means. I could look it up, but I'm at work.

    I have both as well, but the PC is kept off when I am not home and he cannot get into the case. I could see that issue on a 24/7 on PC.

    Nope that is personal experience and why I have an entire bottle of biocide just sitting in my closet.

    You need to reach out to those many manufacturers that send you review stuff and start reviewing keyboards ;)

    I play guitar. My fingers are magic. That is all.

    :wtf:


    N-Key refers to the number of keys that can be pressed at one time and still register. "n" refers to the number of keys..I guess. Not exactly sure, to be honest, but that's the gist of it anyway. ROll-over refers to being able to push them all at once. There's some test you can try while holding shoft or something that kinda shows this....I'd have to as MT ALex what it was, I forget.

    So it's a measurement of how many keys can be pressed before the keyboard begins ghosting?
    I would imagine PS/2 keyboards would inherently be better for this than USB.

    Not at all. fans barely even spin up, since I run those 6950's at bone stock, and more often than not, run stock CPU, too.

    Beleive it or not, teh 7950s, and just two of them, put out more heat, while the 3x6950 gives twice the framerate in BF3.


    Of course, my 6950's exhaust out the back, while the 7950's exhaust into the case, which increases CPU load temps, too.

    OMG, with both of these 7970s flashed to GHz editions and the OC I have on my CPU, even a light video load(DirectX Video Acceleration) warms my legs(computer is under my desk, next to my leg), and gaming for about an hour heats up the whole room. Having a vacuum tube amplifier about two feet above my computer doesn't help, either. That amp alone can heat the room up in about two hours.
    Good thing I live in FL and am used to ~80F ambient.:banghead:

    Hey guys what are the sites you uses to post pictures other than Photobucket? I would like to use Picasa since I can go watch at my pictures only using my LG blu-ray dvd internet connection.
