    8800GTS 640MB w/ R5 1600 vs. 2200g.... for Plex server?

    For what you want, the 8800GTS and 1600 would absolutely be the better plan.

    Garbage microphone quality

    Just drop the regular quality as low as possible, crank up the volume, and if you can apply any filters, do that. Then just REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE into the mic.

    It sure would be great. Hell we probably would just end up putting the money into the phone upgrades for my sister and I just because old high(ish) end cards have been totally pricefucked in the past year and a half or so. If it weren't for the fact that dual socket is just so cool, I'd just use my B75 board and GTX 480 since that is better in every possible way (other than I'd need to figure something out for storage since my decent SATA drive selection is non-existent).

    Technically I (well, my mom bought it) grabbed a ASUS 3650 512MB but it was artifacting like hell when I got it, and as far as I'm aware my mom hasn't heard anything back from the seller.

    This makes me moist. I'd still really like to get an X1650 Pro (or ideally even a 3650) for my XP rig, but man are the prices making me cry a bit. Almost as much as the 9600 Pro makes me cry.

    NH-D15 looks bad can i get different fans for it?

    They're generally pretty close.
  7. Me to me: I really need to find a decent 75mm blower fan to shove into my PC to get hot air out of it since the one I have is obnoxious as hell


    Me on eBay 5 minutes later: All of these give me terminal AIDS.

      The most obvious answer would be that I have a small case, since apparently looking for a specific type of rather small fan wasn't a good enough hint.

      ever tried buying something "NEW" like factory sealed & has a tamper proof sealed label & stuffs?

    Aftermarket case for HP compaq pro 6300 sff

    I want to say those use BTX which means you're pretty well SOL.

    why does windows 7 enterprise take so long to start?

    Replacing the clients won't do a whole lot of good if they're not the problem. Quite frankly I find the chances of this district getting that sweet gubberment money to overhaul servers, networking, AND the labs to be extremely slim.

    why does windows 7 enterprise take so long to start?

    Considering that part of login lasts a solid 10 minutes on the machines at my old high school, I'd say the answer is a solid yes.

    Jankiest Thing You've Done?

    I'm afraid the landfill would not appreciate me digging through trying to find almost certainly decayed cardboard.

    Jankiest Thing You've Done?

    I made a case out of a USPS flat rate box that I reinforced using even more flat rate boxes.

    NGL that blower one gets my rocks off.

    3:9 K/D in COD is my spirit animal.

    Gaming screenshots

    Mini AC: Origins dump. Running it at 1080p very high (or high if that's the max) with a 30fps cap and no AA (since it's so vaseline-y) and it's perfect. Too bad the game is retarded and does that "white box on a black background" bullshit on launch unless I close Afterburner.

    Quiet Mid-low Cost Cooling Upgrade

    Their speed is entirely dependent on what the fan curve is that they have to follow. You can almost certainly tweak it how you want in the BIOS (most boards will have something like silent, normal, performance, and manual on a per-header basis). And no, I wouldn't do a repost. It'll just end up getting merged with this topic.

    Windows XP in 2019

    Common sense and halfway decent AV make XP fine for current-day use, really. Though the lack of actually-current web browsers could become a problem.

    Quiet Mid-low Cost Cooling Upgrade

    1. Looks solid enough to me. F12's are pretty killer cheapies. 2. I believe they both need to be PWM, but I could be entirely wrong on that. 3. If your airflow right now is complete trash, then sure. But I personally wouldn't expect a whole hell of a lot. 4. I would imagine so, but even then your case should have come with enough screws to fill every spot. 5. Keep them as spares or hack a few up to run off USB for summer gayming comfort. 6. They do generally help (especially at higher RPMS), and a lot of the screws I've seen are probably long enough to make it past.

    Please, Which is Safer?

    For normal people SSD's are probably the safest bet. If you are an /r/datahoarder regular then tape drives would be more up your alley.

    Dual core Celery's came quite a while before Sandy... E1200 graced us with its existence in Q1 of 2008...

    The Intel core i9 9990xe

    ...What. Why would you need a custom block for two damn tubes to go into it? Like come on, don't just spew complete and utter bullshit.

    Can anyone identify these memory modules?

    Unrelated to question at hand, but it shows up as two because it's a dual-gpu card.

    How far ahead are you planning for next "dream" build?

    I would like to, don't get me wrong, but if I'm not mistaken the first gen of them were some obscene price and ya boi ain't aboutta spend fat stacks just on a case.

    How far ahead are you planning for next "dream" build?

    I've had a good idea of what I want since the Node 202 came out. And every time I look at the price tag in PCPP it kills me knowing that I'll somehow have to save up just shy of $2,500 on (probably) almost minimum wage.
