    Which Mobile phone can produce best music quality?

    If you're talking about the integrated speakers then there's no way they will ever be as good as a set of PC speakers. They are too small to have any sort of real bass impact and their design is different. As for the audio processing equipment, some can be very decent. For instance the iphone 4...

    MSI GeForce GTX 650Ti OC=£99.98

    Make sure you're looking at the GTX 650 Ti non 'boost' version review. The 'boost' version was released just last week and it's a fair bit better. This version seems to be somewhere between the AMD 7770 and the 7850. Could be worth it if you want the in game credit right enough.

    Black Screen after minor overclocking

    If your motherboard doens't have a CMOS reset switch you can just take out the cmos battery (small circular battery on the motherboard) for about 5-10 mins and it will reset everything.

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    I am a bit of a noob (despite the fact I can solder!) when it comes to these things but I would have thought that the -12v reading would be closer to -12v or slightly over -12v as the +12v reading is. Same with the -5v. And why can't all the components use +12v?

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    Even the -12v and -5v readings? Can somebody explain the significance of these rails?

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    I have an old x connect 500w power supply from 2004 that had a bulging capacitor so I changed it. I forgot to take before and after readings but do these voltages seem right? Taken with a cheap multimeter but given the age of the PSU there's no point in getting a better one just to test it...
