    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.

    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.

    Happy 22,000 mile "anniversary" with this boo.

    Do over ear headphones cause hearing damage at low volume?

    Why would they? Unless they're churning out something in the mid 80s at low volume you'd be very hard pressed to fuck up your hearing.

    What 120mm fans would you recomend for low noise & low cost

    Even the 80 and 92's (which my grandma's PC has to replace the stock AVC ones) are incredibly quiet full tilt. In her case, even just normal operation with them pretty much just idling her temps managed to drop since the AVC's only really had top end power.

    Suppose you could say it tastes... Bitter.

    Arctic F12's get my vote by a landslide.

    Not exactly unusual...

    The good 'ol annoying ass flat six. I suppose that while I could always hack up a few cables to get the right voltages and whatknot, it really would be more of a PITA than it's worth. Guess I just don't fully see the point in replacing something that isn't broken. Suppose we also can't forget that older PCs generally slam 5v more than 12v, and modern PSUs don't do so hot with that kind of load.

    You have no idea how badly I'd want to do this for my XP rig (the ol RV350 is old enough and inefficient enough that the power draw of the system turned off makes the PSU warm) but none of the PSUs I have actually have the aux power connector which I need, and I'm not about to drop retardo amounts of money on one that does.
  12. Too many variables to really give a concrete answer but ideally it'd be somewhere in the high 70s unless you have ass-class airflow where it might end up hitting the 80s. Also shouldn't forget to mention that being a blower you'll probably want to clean it out. Takes a lot less dust to block blowers up and make cooling far worse.
  13. Tear it down and replace the thermal paste with something decent like MX-4.

    Yep, I totally threw out stuff that broke when I was born. Big brain gang up in here.

    20 year old hdd OOF

    The phrase "they just don't make 'em like they used to" really comes in to play with most older hardware. I have quite a bit of shit that's 20 years old and works just as well if not better than newer parts.
