    I decided to go with the Corsair HX750 for now, in part thanks to your recommendation, in part thanks to just how good a deal it is, and in part because I never had any problems with my old CWT-based...

    Thanks for your advice, Al3xand3r! That power supply does look very nice, and with the current sales going on, is practically the cheapest platinum-rated power supply there is. There aren't too...

    X99 Power Requirements

    I'm upgrading from a Z68-based Ivy Bridge system to a X99-based Haswell-E system. This will be my first time going to a high-end platform. Will my 3-year-old Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W be powerful...

    Nope, don't already have it yet, but it is on a pretty good sale on Newegg right now ($80 after MIR), so I'm tempted to jump. :D (I have a case already, the P182SE which I got on clearance a year...

    Oldie and still Goodie?

    The 620HX came out three years ago; would it still be one of the top choices today for, say, a Core i7 860, a single powerful graphics card (say, an AMD 5870), a few hard drives, and a couple optical...

    New Toughpower XT Series

    Looks like Thermaltake has upgraded their Toughpower line and is calling the new line Toughpower XT. Any idea how much better or worse it really is than the old Toughpower line? Any reviews up at...

    Depends on when and where you get it. If you get one at full price, especially a new model, then it can be quite expensive. If you get it on sale, though, you can get a good deal. I got my...

    From what I've heard, only the X48 and Skulltrail are 1600 FSB. P45 will be 1333 FSB, just like P35. Not that it really matters anyway; any decent P35 motherboard, let alone P45 I imagine, can...

    You made the same mistake that I did when interpreting that review. The 14A per rail is only true when all the 12V rails are equally loaded under high heat. In a normal situation in a computer, not...

    I have Linux too; maybe I'll reboot and see sometime tomorrow. ;)



    You mean the graphics card? It says "[000A0000-000BFFFF] NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB" for memory, which is what I assume...

    Yes I do, a G92 8800 GTS 512MB to be exact. As well as an Audigy 2 ZS as well as what's integrated onto the motherboard (Ethernet, extra HDD controller, etc...). And yet, I still have 3.5 GB of...

    On my computer at least, 32-bit XP can see 3.5 GB. :) So it's only 1/8 that's wasted (and only on 32-bit operating systems), and with RAM so cheap, no reason to get less.

    Yes. 16x/1x in non-Crossfire situations, and 8x/8x in Crossfire. When you keep in mind that it's PCI-E 2.0 especially, there is no advantage of 16x slots over 8x slots anyway as long as you're...

    Actually, I was thinking of underclocking my RAM to DDR2-667 (from DDR2-800) to be in sync with the FSB if having them synced would be better than a slightly increased memory speed. ;)

    I've heard that it's best to run at a 1:1 divider. Does it really make a difference, or is it another (sub)urban legend? e.g.: 1333 FSB with DDR2-800 vs 1333 FSB with DDR2-667.

    I'd stay away from the stock 8800 GT's like that one. Too noisy or hot, depending on fan settings. If you value silence at all (and don't want your card to overheat), you've got to add the cost of...

    Better to go for a single 8800 GTX rather than 3870's in Crossfire. Much less issues than having to deal with Crossfire, and you can get a GTX for cheap these days. If you don't need all that power...

    Then I would recommend the MSI P7N SLI Platinum. The 650i has had fewer problems than the 680i, so I assume the same will be true for the 700-series chipsets, as they're pretty similar. There is...
