  1. Either 1. Battery is not calibrated (let it go to 0% turn off computer and charge to 100%). 2. Power adapter is broken 3. Battery is borked.
  2. I have been through a B.Eng. and continuing on my M.Sc. right now. First couple of semesters were all about getting the basic knowledge about programming, algorithms, math, databases, UML and stuff like that. Pretty basic stuff and if you pay attention you can get though those courses pretty easily. Third and fourth semester became a little bit more hardcore as we had to learn the internals of computers and program FPGA's make C code and all kinds of low-level stuff. From then on you got to choose courses yourself and come up with a Bachelor Thesis. Even some of my less intelligent peers got through this with some trial and error, so basically it should be possible for anyone with a little bit of brains between his ears to do computer sciences. Just be persistent and disciplined and you should get through it.
  3. 4.4GHz using +0.055 offset, Extreme LLC and that is pretty much it. Gets a bit toasty at around 80 degrees C when graphics card is at 100% as well otherwise it is a bit lower at 65 degrees.
  4. They need a lot more power than 2x15 Watt since their SPL is quite low. I would say at least 2x30 to make them play decently. You should be able to find some nice cheap Denon/Marantz/Onkyo receivers which are remote controlled. Maybe go to some yard sales or flea markets and find a nice sturdy old receiver.
  5. Just did a bit of OC. Seems to be stable and cool at 4.4GHz @ 65 degrees C with +0.050 offset, C3/6 disabled, High Load Line Calibration and Extreme Power Phase Control. Probably not going to tweak it more than it is now.
  6. Back in the good old Socket A days I was pressuring an Athlon Mobile CPU a bit too much. It was pretty well cooled and the temps were OK, but I think I gave it a bit too much volt, and it said poof. After dismounting the Heat-sink there was a very nice little hole in the die about the size of a pin head. What was previously in the hole was now sitting on the heat sink in stuck to the thermal paste. :D
  7. My parents Socket A computer was still running pretty strong until last year when they decided to get laptops because it was more handy for them. That computer was bought when Barton CPU's were released so sometime in 2003. So it held up very nice and I would assume that it had more life in it, just running a bit slow :P But now that vendors are using solid capacitors and better components I would not think much about how long it will last. I don't think 10 years is unrealistic as long as you don't pressure the components 24/7.

    Need Speakers.

    The argon speakers are 14,3 cm wide, so you should be able to fit them in.
  9. The thing that higher impedance effects is the damping factor and how much power you need to use to run the headphones (SPL has a say here as well). A nice writeup about damping factor can be read on Wikipedia and the sources it refers to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damping_factor
  10. Instead of getting the DT770 PRO's take a look at the DT770 PRO LE. They have better sound-stage and lacks the grainy sound of the non-LE's. Actually what would be best for you would be if you could find some stores, where you could get a demo of some products. You ought to have a instrument store nearby where they sell active speakers and headphones. I listened to the M-Audio speakers you mentioned and they are pretty decent, I almost bought them! However I found a pair of cheap AudioEngine A5 speakers which I went with instead, and I am still very satisfied with my purchase. As for the sound card, maybe you should consider a combined DAC/AMP instead with a pre-out for the speakers and a headphone amplifier for your headphones. There are some good ones for a quite reasonable. Such as the Aune T1 or X1 and the Audisnt Hud-mx1 (mx2 is coming soon). Or the O2/ODAC combo, however it does not have a pre-out.

    Audeze LCD-3

    LCD2 on Little Dot MK IV slightly modded with other caps and tubes. HE-500 on Musical Fidelity M1 HPA and on my Audio-gd 10.2. All these were listened to briefly on at a meeting where head-fi enthusiasts meet up and listen to each others equipment. I had the HE-400 on loan for a week, they compared to the others have a unnatural brightness over them, a strange spike in the 14-16 kHz region, which made them unbearable for me to listen to. However if you mod them you can probably get over that.
  12. The OCZ Ram needs 1.65V. Afaik 1155/1156 boards outputs 1.5V default, that is why your computer might not be starting up.
  13. Just leaving this for you to read: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/57918 The kernel will probably never be anything than C. .NET will never get all the users, as it is not suited for all tasks, so there will always be room for other languages. However it is gaining popularity, so expect to see more people using it for applications for Linux. Mono is already quite popular on Android and iOS with Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS, which I use at work. Xamarin also has a version for Mac. So since the three major platforms are covered with C# and .NET it is a good choice to learn it. However starting almost any OOP language or Functional programming language will get you somewhere, the hardest part I believe is sticking to it and keep learning. When you get stuck StackOverflow is a good place to ask specific questions.

    Need Speakers.

    Mads, you can get the Edifiers here: http://www.edbpriser.dk/pc-hoejttalere/edifier-r1900tii-sort-id-402920.aspx I've listened to HiFi-Klubben's Argon speakers, they are also pretty decent for the price: http://www.hifiklubben.dk/produkter/hojttaler/pc/argon_6340a_aktiv-hojttaler_sort.htm If you want a less HiFi oriented speaker set you could go for some cheapo Logitech Speakers like: http://www.edbpriser.dk/pc-hoejttalere/logitech-z-323-id-642281.aspx or if you want surround sound (snurre rundt lyd :P) http://www.edbpriser.dk/pc-hoejttalere/logitech-x-530-id-100094.aspx
  15. I recently switched from a Razer Lachesis to a Roccat Kone+. I can only recommend the Kone as it is more ergonomic, more customizable in form of adding weight and changing colors (has 4 RGB LED points) and the sensor is very precise. I have very large hands as well and I really like how it feels. I use it as a claw/palm hybrid. Maybe something like a R.A.T.7 which is super customizable could also be a good choice, however I have not tried them personally, so can't tell much about them.
  16. I use a Filco Majestouch MINILA with MX Blue switches.
  17. USB Host mode support is standard since Android 3.1, however not all ROM's support them. But if you can get someone to run this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.usbhostdiagnostics on a HTC One you would be able to find out.
  18. Running Paranoid Android on both my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. A very nice ROM. I really like the Pie navigation, and a plus is when friends try to use my phone or tablet they don't know how to navigate it X-D Before I changed to PA I ran CyanogenMod which is also a super awesome ROM, I've used that ROM since back when I had a HTC Magic back when the first Android devices emerged.
  19. Yea, I love them, they are quiet and have a nice airflow. Since I don't have a window in my case I don't mind the colors, even if I had a window I wouldn't mind them. Oh yeah, I actually just modded the case a bit today, I ripped out the HDD cage to improve airflow in the case. I only have two disks so I don't need that huge cage. However that complicated cable management a bit. I really really want a modular supply next :D

    Audeze LCD-3

    I haven't heard the LCD 3, however I have very briefly listened to LCD2 and other comparable headphones such as the HiFiMan HE-500 and HE-400. Quite frankly the Audezee's and the HE-500 sound very "dark" compared to other headphones using dynamic drivers. Some other headphones considering in the "worlds best" headphones are the Stax SR-007mk2. There is a very nice thread on Head-fi comparing a lot of different flag ship models, which you might find interesting. http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-57-headphones-compared-update-ultimate-ears-uerm-added-4-14-13
  21. Generally the foam on headphones is used to dampen some frequencies and is much depending on how dense the foam is. But usually removing the foam means a change in the upper and lower frequencies.
  22. Mine comes way back from cheesing around on Star Wars Academy servers with a friend. We always choose the most goofy costumes in the game and the most lame weapons trolled people on the servers. Oh good times.
  23. This is my setup: Specs of the computer: Fractal Design Define R3 Intel 3570k @ Stock speeds for now Asus P8Z77-V LX2 Corsair Vengeance LP 4x4GB @ 1600MHz Sapphire HD7950 OC Boost Vapor-X @ 1000/1500MHz Corsair TX650, really want a modular supply soon Corsair Force 3 256GB SSD Asus Xonar D2X Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB HDD Mix of Nocuta, Noiseblocker and some random fan. Rig running pretty quiet and cool. Peripherals: Dell 3008WPF Filco Majestouch MINILA Roccat Kone+ Audio-gd 10.2 HiFiMan HE-300 Audio Engine A5 speakers on Sinn7 foam stands Some random DealExtreme microphone The huge mousepad is a corepad The desk is a elevation desk which goes all the way up to 130cm, so I can stand up working as well as sitting.
  24. 9/10 Quite funny lyrics, never heard of them before, have to look into more of their songs :) Another lyric driven band is Beardfish, their songs are very long, so sit back tight and give them a spin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ-KYaBQGRY
  25. 9/10 One is probably one of my favorite Metallica songs.
