    Do you still believe in Cryptocurrency ?

    In my personal opinion virtual coins are the most pathetic and least useful currency of all time... next to tulips. Why: 1. they are resource hungry to mine (its like you burn a forest and someone is willing to pay for photo of it). 2. every transaction has huge cost penality. It cannot be...

    Emulation vs. real console

    I like to have all beloved consoles in my home, but I do not have a space for that. Also floppy disks from my old Atari 65XE are dead now. My SNES does not work since 15 years. With Raspberry Pi3 I can have all my memories and my old consoles in a pocket. I just connect it to TV and play...

    Emulation vs. real console

    Emulation! Mainstream PC + Libretro/RetroArch ... and you can emulate every console from Atari 2600 up to PS3/Wii U! Raspberry Pi 3 can emulate every console up to PSX/Dreamcast.

    [Rumor] RX480 AIB Card Leaked and Tested!

    I have not seen such big hype around graphics card for a long time. Pascal architecture was a big surprise, because no one expected to be really that good. And now AMD is expected to be even better. God, please don't let me down like you did in last AMD few GPU generations. I want to buy...

    [Rumor] RX480 AIB Card Leaked and Tested!

    Back in the days OC meant 50% more power. Do anyone still remember Radeon 9500@9700, Geforce 6800LE@6800GT or E2140 1,6GHz@3,2GHz?

    Swiftech Unveils H2Ox20 Elite Series Liquid Cooling Kits

    3 bodies won't fit in Cosmos II. Only one will, but you must chop off legs first. But you can fit a whole computer in it and you will have free space for XBOX, PS3 and a hamster terrarium inside :)

    Recycling gold from computer parts

    I have tried this already 5 years ago, on my studies. I have ended with a scar on left hand from acid and two years after I stopped playing with gold mining I discovered, that I have asthma bronchiale. If you want to do this at home...don't. It is just not worth. If you want to start it with...

    How to edit 6950 2GB bios to make it run hotter?

    I do not recomend this solution for 250$ card. I had the same problem with my old GF 6800 GT. It started to artifact some day. Always after 15 minutes of Furmark artifacting dissapeared. I have made oven trick but it helped for 2-3 months. Without proper reballing, overheating trick is just...

    Convince me not to go Nehalem

    I think right now going to Nahelm or Sandy Bridge is a bad option. Ivy Bridge is coming soon and your CPU is more than enough for games. With GTX580 you wont get bottleneck. CPU is important in low resolutions. In 1680x1050 it just does not matter.

    How to edit 6950 2GB bios to make it run hotter?

    I think your card is damaged. If it runs properly only when has high temps ... this is not normal. There is no way to get VRM in range 30C. Maybe it is burned already and temperature sensor do not work properly. You can remove all cooling from this card and see if it helps (do not do this, just...

    Project: MNU

    Another question: Did you used standard mounting mechanism for side panels? Oryginal panels with acoustic dumpers are quite heavy and as I see you have put a lot of wood on them. I know the mounting mechanism uses metal hooks, but I already broke two of them on my Define R3. They are too soft...
