Just curious if anyone here had an Android phone and Google Apps Premier. I'm thinking of swapping out my Blackberry, but since most of my mobile needs are email and calendars...I'm trying to take some guess work out of whether an Android phone will work for me or not.

Have you used one before? I'd make a trip down to best buy or something and test a few out and see how you like it.

Should I pull the trigger on a GTX 460 for $191 shipped? It is very tempting.. I can then get rid of my 260's and get another one.

I've tried using it. I can't really test what I'm looking for without loading a bunch of corporate data on the phone.

I can't seem to find a lot of info on what I'm looking for and the Android forums don't have much info on it either. Just thought I'd take a stab in the dark and see if anyone here was using the 2.

You could always do the 30 day return policy if you don't like what you have, although you don't always get 100% of your money back.

I'm just not too familiar with all that corporate account stuff so I'm not of too much help lol. Aren't there android threads here on OCN?

Hi, I'm new the the forum. I was thinking about getting an EVGA x58 sli or le and I think the sig on the first post in this thread told me all I needed to know. i7 920 @ 4.3GHz. I was wondering about the overclocking potential of this board and how the good air coolers fit in it with the RAM. I just bought an i7 930 and now I'm on the hunt for components. I plan to OC to 4.3 GHz. If you have any advice for me let me know.

There's a EVGA X58 SLI and LE version on B-stock on EVGA's website, with 90 day warranty for around half off normal price. Is that a good idea?

Welcome to OCN I'm sure you will find friendly people in this thread

Anything passed 4.0 on a 920/930 will be very batch# dependent and if your set on 4.3-4.4 then save for the Classified. The vdroop involved is near zero and with a good PSU and the extra tweeks in the bios that are vital when it comes to the clock speeds you desire you will be very pleased along with a lifetime warrenty.

What kind of memory are your considering? Manufacture,Speed,capacity,Timings?
This is important with i7's being the IMC is on the cpu and you plan to overclock.
The stock and supported speed of the X58 chipset is 1066 so anything above that speed is overclocking the memory and the better the memory the more succsessful the overclock will be.

In short... If you overclock your 930 by raising the Bclk your raising the speed of the memory aswell. So in the end its a happy medium.

Hi, thanks you for replying. My i7 930 batch number is 3003B782 ..what does that tell you? Haha it's just numbers to me (and a letter, haha). RAM wise I am going to get whatever you guys say. I thought the G SKILL ripjaws were interesting because they had heatsinks. All I have picked out is the i7 930 and everything else I get I will pick out according to what you all say. I was thinking the EVGA board would be a nice choice for SLI graphics performance over say an ASUS board.. think so?
