Really, his loss for leaving the greatest platform ever made.

Hey , an upgrade is an upgrade .. and you cant beat the price

What a NIGHT!

Don't worry pioneer, anytime I want to go to town, I spend $15 in gas. Don't let it get you down! (Wanna join the Anti-high gas price club? j/k) Anyways, I feel your pain.

I actually ended up using a drill to get a starting hole, and then a scroll saw to do the work. I took pictures, will post them later.

I would say it is worth it if only for the extra cache. The big thing is the stepping as Joe has already stated.

I would not say hate you, but I am a little stuck wondering if you shipped or not yet.

In other news, once I get them, my case will be entirely Thermaltake cooled. Every single fan will be a thermaltake. Yes, I know the CPU cooler is Thermalright, but pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

I love S&M personally. After 5-7 hours of S&M, you can purport your computer as stable or stabler than if you ran Orthos 12-14 hours. Not a bad time saver!

HOWEVER: Caveat emptor: S&M is not for people with weak constitutions. Every time I run it on my PC, I feel like I am having a heart attack. You have been warned.

I too had that problem. S&M was running fine, and then I decided to start playing with the window...

Illegal operation resulted.

And we'll also be looking for possibly 3 sets of 2GB kits of RAM (DDR400 is fine). It all depends on what the budget allows for, because we'll still need to pick up a case, and drives too.
They are birthday gifts Pioneer. And we never finished talking about my Corsairs here...

Again!? Did not you just install that OS about a month ago...?

If I had it, I would spend it. I have a pair of $60 PS2 wheels. They are similar to Momos, but lack the stick shifter and have lower-quality pedals.

GeCube 3850 OC Edition 700/850 - $85 Shipped

If anyone is interested please PM me
If I had PCI-E, I would certainly get my hands on your card. However, I do not, and will need to live with my AGP card. See later discussion about case temps.

What keeps you up at this hour? I'm too hot to sleep (ambient temperature is presently 30.1 degrees C - curse these stupidly hot SoCal summers!), and I've been mounting images onto new HDDs in my quest to beat back my hardware gremlins.
I know I should not be complaining, but I am rather uncomfortable in my parents' house. They have window and wall units around the house. The guest room is not one of those rooms affected by one. The end result is that the room is much warmer than I would like, but still not in the range of Scorpiondom.

(Woot! Page 468, four pages left!)

they're not great during the summer, but definitely better than L.A.
but we don't have any really nice zoos here :
Right now in Buffalo, it is 73º F with thunderstorms. Tonight should be in the 50s. Right now in Long Island, it is about 79º F with no rain, but 100% humidity. I am miserable here!

Is it January yet?

No fair posting that before me! You know I am out of town!

As promised:

1) Try this whole thing on a test piece of acrylic. once I did that, I proceded.
2) Take blue painter's tape and stick it down on the case where the fan should go.
3) Tape the fan filter in place on the far side and hold to the light to get an idea for the circle.
4) Hold the door flush against a piece of wood (to prevent blowout) and drill a 3/8" pilot hole
5) Cut out the circle with a 3/8" scroll saw

6) Line up the intended fan grill
7) Put tape under each of the mounting points, and mark the wholes
8) Drill each hole (again on the wood to prevent blowout) large enough for a #10 bolt

9) Find some #10 rubber washers lying around your basement
10) Realize the washers are too thick and bisect them with an exacto
11) Feed the bolt through the grill, then the washer, the door, a metal washer, and a finally a nut
12) Lay the door on the carpet and take a picture

13) Remount the door on the case



Was it worth it? Quite possibly. My CPU temps are approximately 2º C cooler than they were. However, this, my first case mod, was not done for this purpose. It was done for the well-being of my 3850. Prior to the mod, while running Real-Time High-Dynamic Range Image-Based Lighting, my 3850 at 98% load would read 71º C with 81% fan speed. Afterwards, my 3850 reads 71º C at 25% fan speed. Prior, it idled at 52º C at 13% fan speed. Now, it idles at 39º C at 13% fan speed.

^ lol boonie

looks good boonie! I'm considering putting a fan on my side panel again, I removed it so that it wouldn't block the view of my components (I ended up putting it at the exhaust end of my freezer64)

Hey everyone, I just got finished ripping up a friends laptop that he gave to me since it no longer works. I was curious as to what the CPU was, he said it ran at 2.0GHz and thats all he knew. So I finally get into the motherboard to find none other than a socket 939 CPU. I thought these were desktop CPUs, or is there a mobile 939 CPU? Anyway I've since removed it, I'm guessing its an Athlon 64 3200 because the first line says ADA3200DEP4AW. So is this thing of any use or not? If it is, I might sell it for a few dollars or just freebie it out.
