    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    Non-Reference XFX 4850 Volt-modding

    Vf900 + 9800gtx+ ?

    I just went and bought a 9800GTX+, but the huge ass cooler interferes with my SATA port. I have a VF900CU on my old 8600GT, but I'm not sure if it will work properly on the 9800GTX. Will it work? Will the mosfets and memory overheat if I take off the stock heatsink? Has anyone tried this...

    mx1000 problems

    I think I may have damaged this thing, or fried it. It is my first wireless mouse, I've been using it for a month or two now, and lately the cursor has been skipping all around randomly, sometimes won't click on things correctly, etc. I just realized I may have been charging it wrong. I've been...

    Finally got 1t to work on this ram!

    I almost shit my pants when it boot up fine with 1t settings. I've been running 2t on this ram ever since I've had it. It just wouldn't work on my old shuttle socket A board, or my MSI K8N Neo2 platinum. When I first got this A8N-SLI Deluxe, I was anxious to see if I could get 1t to work...
