Gotta respond to this one guys.
I've had Acronis for a few years now, upgrading each year & either backing up my little drives to a 1Tb WD Caviar Black, no less. All, including V11, worked fantastically, never an error, except one night I started at 2am, forgot to click "do not format old drive". Oops, had to re-load from the Clone!

Then we get to 2010. Dumb, V2010, well, it helps you know how old it is but it's not a V number or sub-number. Anyway, it stinks, errors all the time, doing things I don't want it to do & when I had my Raid 0, it very rarely backed up all the data. I went back to V11, still use it, back up the whole network onto 1 ESata drive. Wicked fast.

Off topic: Anyone ever expand your cable DVR with an external HDD? I'm very tired, first time I had a weekend off & the stupid DVR only has a 160G drive! What idiot thought that one up?? It only took 2 movies and 3 days of series to get to 80%!
Call me, seriously thinking of trading my vid card for a good Tivo!
Pm me please.

Sure K, check the bottom of your thread, I'm back to be a busy body. Work in the day, browsing the computer at night.

Edit #1. @ Trademark. Hope you didn't jump into building that baby as fast as you did last time. My suggestions: What good is that mouse? What not get a CMS Sentinal? Mine is great, 5 user profiles with just a stretch of a finger & a click, customizable colors for each profile (BTW, you can combine them, like red & blue for purple), 5600dpi, thumb buttons, weights so you can adjust the slide factor, they even have the teflon feet replaceable for guys like me that are tough on hardware & the thing has it's own memory, can't loose your config's because of a system crash.

Other than that, this is my dream mouse: http://cyborggaming.com/prod/rat7.htm

Also. Why the 950? Just O/C a 930 for him. Everything else looks good, just be sure the 1Tb drive is the 1001faals, that's close to the model but probably not right. Last thing, me & S'med, my computer geek kid, can't figure why anyone would want Win7 Ult? You can download all the languages & extras that they try to slip in there.

@ PapaSmurf. You hit me right where it counts. Mindy has this Vaio laptop & that thing takes like 15minutes to boot 'cause the HDD just keeps going & going & going..... Really want her to let me buy a 256SSD.

Edit #2. Man you guys gotta slow the roll so I can catch up!! LOL!

My Toshiba from last year was like that when I first got it. It took a bit of tweaking but I have it down to about 2 minutes to boot into Win 7 or XP depending in which I select. If I didn't have the dual boot menu to deal with I could cut that down to about 1:40. I can trim it down a bit more if I try hard enough, but that takes some of the easy access options away from it. It's only a T3400 w/ 3gig of ram but it was free. Won it as a door prize at a grand re-opening of a local Christian book store last July just after the free Win 7 upgrade program started. It ain't the fastest lappy on the planet but it was a big step up from my 5 year old Dell P4 with a Trident video chipset.

Ok, so what is the best you can do with this case? If you do not change anything with the case. But with the fans and stuff, shall I run with LED fans or ordinary fans? Some fluorescent lamps? What CPU cooler should I use?
post #13356 of 28613
Well Bri, I know how those cableco DVR's fall a little short...my advice:

WD My DVR Expander. (It's a slick looking esata drive with 1TB storage)

Think it can be had for under $100.

The best you can do? That's up to your imagination, mate.

Anything you can think up: hdd cage cover/false floor, CCFL's, window mods (replacing the stock tinted side window with a clear one...there's a tutorial in this section somewhere) any 120mm fan that has decent CFM with or without LED's, custom paint jobs...etc...

I'd say a Corsair H50 water cooler...great cooling, closed loop design so you really don't have to worry about leaks (as long as you don't kink the tubing) and can be had for less than most top end air coolers. And heaven forbid you do have a leak, Corsair's RMA is top class...and as long as you haven't modded the H50 in anyway, they're pretty good with replacing water damaged components.

Just the heads up. Anyone needing Intel Core i5 760? With a promotion code, it is 170.99+free shipping. Here's the link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-067-_-Product

and the promo code: EMCYTZT162

This is only good for 24 hours.
