    New Japanese Law Jails Illegal Downloaders for 2 Years

    Be interesting to see if this actually makes any difference in sales. Personally I would boycott the enitre industry and not buy anything from them anymore just out of principal. In my opinion they would be better off updating their content/delivery models to better compete with piracy, making...

    [EU] Crucial V4 256GB £99.00 OCUK

    I have returned many items for RMA (usually headphones) still never had a problem. The only time i did was when i returned some Geil TCCD ram (this is going back 5+ yrs) and they sent me Geil value instead. As soon as I emailed them they apologised and rectified the problem almost instantly...

    IS this MOBO good enough for i5 3350 and radeon 7850 1gb ???

    IS this MOBO good enough for i5 3350 and radeon 7850 1gb ???

    link doesnt work. I wouldnt skimp too much on a CPU, a 2500k is a very nice chip for the price...the 3870k is about the same price and arguably a little better again. Although increasing your initial outlay, these chips will probably pay you back in the long run

    Thermalright Coming Up with the Silver Arrow SB-E CPU Cooler

    even for novies, a corsair h80/100 makes watercooling very easy and risk free There are few risks tbh if a custom system is set up properly, i've been on custom water cooling for 10+ years without a problem.

    Thermalright Coming Up with the Silver Arrow SB-E CPU Cooler

    just use water... A low/mid spec closed loop systems like a corsiar h80 are gonna cost less than this and wont snap your motherboard.

    Pirate Bay Founders Stare At Jailtime as Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

    it's relevant because if their wages weren't so high the films would cost less and the piracy rate would also decrease. Also look at it another way. An electrician puts up a light switch, he gets paid a flat fee for this. Should he then get royalties for everyone that uses that light switch?

    Pirate Bay Founders Stare At Jailtime as Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

    yes energyfx they are pirate sites. Most of them owned by the same person, some of them now pay a royalty to the producers of the material, but not many.

    Pirate Bay Founders Stare At Jailtime as Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

    @ EnergyFX - If you download porn (i'm not saying you do), do you/would you pay for that? As that is an industry that has genuinely been hit by piracy. I think if people saw Tom Hanks in the street begging for money so that he can eat then piracy of large hollywood titles might be taken more...

    Pirate Bay Founders Stare At Jailtime as Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

    I don't hate America. I hate the way they feel they need to police the world. If someone holds a gun to my head and tells me to do something, is it really my fault for doing it? Whose government is it prosecuting the owners of megaupload again, and trying to force SOPA/PIPA down the throats...

    Pirate Bay Founders Stare At Jailtime as Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

    If they are found guilty under Swedish law then fair enough. Let's just say that they are found innocent under Swedish law, do you think the Americans will just accept that fact and leave it at that?? Or will they spit their dummy out like a child until they get their own way?

    Data of 50 Million MegaUpload Users To Be Deleted

    The only "safe" way for the file hosting sites to continue is to do what filesonic and fileserve have done and make it so files cannot be shared...USA, land of the free, or dictatorship in disguise?? Starting to like the US less and less to be honest, they aren't happy unless there is someone...
