    Suitable replacement for TJ07?

    Hi, I have been using my TJ07-BW for a few years now and it has been the most solid case I have owned by far (also the most expensive by far). Recently I have had the opportunity to work with the Corsair 600T and I must say that, feature wise, I prefer it over the TJ07. Build quality...

    Hi, I've just today thought about using the DVI-HDMI adapter and S/PDIF cable on my GTX280 and for some reason I cannot get the audio working. I have attached the audio cable from the S/PDIF out on my mobo to the audio port on the GTX280...is there something else I have missed? (I have tried...

    Hard drive, not system, randomly restarting?

    Hi, I recently noticed that one (maybe 2) of my hard drives power off and power on a few seconds later. I have a dual boot system and it seems that the boot disk w/ XP is the one with the issue. I will be using Vista and I will hear a drive power down and then restart/spin-up again - similar...

    What to do with QX6850?

    Hi, I currently have my Q6700 at 3.6 with my Tuniq and the cost of upgrading to the QX6850 would be about $100. I was wondering what the general consensus was on max stable OC with the QX6850 on air. (ill also be swapping my ram for Mushkin Redlines PC2-8000 2x2GB if that matters any) So what...

    P5E drivers after Rampage flash?

    Hi, I was curious as to what drivers I would download for a P5E flashed to Rampage; would I still get all the drivers on the Asus site for the P5E or for the Rampage? I have not yet actually set up the board yet, but am I correct in assuming that I will get better OC ability and stability if...

    What is used on the front of this TJ07?

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=159620&page=2 Hi, I was looking at the TJ07 recently and wondering what people are doing for mods. From the looks of it, the TJ07 is not an ideal solution when one is just air-cooling. But in the first post in the link, the TJ07 has...

    TJ07 and Tuniq 120 orientation?

    Hi, I was considering getting the TJ07 but was wondering how one would go about having the tuinq oriented? i.e. regular (fan blowing towards the back) or sideways (fan blowing upwards). The tj07 has 2 92mm fans which are, by default, intake fans. i could go about flipping them around, but...

    Step-up for canadians?

    hi, with the GT having nearly the same performance as the GTX, I was considering using my eVGA step-up but was wondering if there would be a customs/duties charge for this. if all i have to pay is the difference in price, then that is not an issue as the price of my original card is more than...

    Overclocking on an OEM mobo?

    Hi, i have OCed on a few different OEM mobos in the past, but they had a different chipset and were supported by SetFSB and clockgen. this time i am not as lucky as the board is an intel D945GCL from eMachines. on a different board, i have OCed the celeronD 356 to around 4.3GHz stable on stock...

    Hi, with Crysis coming out at Sept 11 (thats what some guys at MS and Intel said anyways), I was wondering if it would be a good idea to jump on the 8800 Ultra bandwagon (i can get the Ultra for the same price as a GTX); i currently have an Asus 1950pro but I am beginning to find it hard to run...

    Vista x64 'Hide inactive icons'

    Hi, i recently installed Vista x64 on one of my drives. the good news is that it recognizes all my RAM (4GB), the bad news, so far, is that i no longer have the < or > to show or hide inactive icons (it is normally to the left of the clock and other icons in the bottom right side of the screen)...
