    GTX 580 full coverage block suggestions

    I just bought a 580 from Darwin96 (great deal, btw), and need to pick out a good full coverage block for it. I'm having a hard time finding any comprehensive reviews. I'm leaning towards the Koolance, due to it's design using fine fins over the GPU, and the fact that my CPU-360 block performs...

    Buffalo to release new routers with DD-WRT as the factory firmware

    Title says it all really. For those that don't know, DD-WRT is an open source, Linux based 3rd party firmware for many routers on the market. It generally adds a good amount of features, performance and stability over factory firmwares. Worth looking into. http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index Source

    3 gpu clients with ATI on one monitor?

    Ok, I followed the instructions to get my 4870X2 into the fray with both cores, but I can't get my 4870 into the mix no matter what I do. CCC won't let me fake a 3rd display (which is how I got the second instance running), so what are my other options? And does Crossfire being off or on make a...

    Need Vista x64 SP1 explorer.exe

    So, I was messing around with hacks and themes in Vista. One of the themes require replacing explorer.exe. Well, I forgot to back it up before I overwrote it, and now it crashes. If somebody would be so kind as to upload a copy of explorer.exe from an x64 SP1 Vista install, it would be...

    Extremetech review: Nano vs Atom

    Extremetech has a review pitting VIA's new Nano cpu against Intel's Atom. Admittedly, Nano isn't doing as well as I had hoped. Lets hope they come at a lower cost. http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,2845,2326852,00.asp?kc=ETRSS03039TX1K0000564

    Overclock settings not working in 3DMark05

    I'm having a hard time with 3DMark05 and Rivatuner it seems. I set my clocks in RT, and all looks well, my clocks go to where I set them. Then, when I run 05, the gpu/shader clocks go back to BIOS defaults during the tests (mem stays OCed), but clock back up in between tests or when idle...
