  1. Ok I am doing a project for school. I am going to buy a motherboard off ebay and donate it to my school. I have a P4 3.0 GHz, with HT. I am looking for an extremely cheap motherboard for it (socket 775) Looking at http://www.ebay.com/itm/151190641491?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 and http://www.ebay.com/itm/161176684891?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 yes i know both of these motherboards are really not so good, but leaning and teaching is important to me and thought this would help students understand (I am a student btw) Please help me out Also if you have a better motherboard that you would be willing to donate that would be great. I can pay shipping and what not thank you so much, I really do appreciate it!
  2. I may have to find some longer screws. How do you mount a backplate? If I just screw it onto the back, wont it short out EVERYTHING? It is metal. thanks for your replies
  3. Hi I am looking at getting an EK-FC7970 backplate for me Graphics card. I want one because it looks cool, I have no other reason . I have the Gigabyte GV-R7970OC-3GD, with the stock air cooler. thanks for your help, let me know what other information would be useful Also let me know if this is in the wrong section.

  4. Lowest Price (thank you PC Part Picker) $95.98 USD http://www.adorama.com/MISWN700404.html?utm_term=Other&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=Other&utm_source=cj_3938566
  5. It's PayPal, what can possibly be good about it?
  6. yes it does only problem is the radiator/fans slam into the motherboard and ram and all sorts of good stuff. wont fit in the bottom
  7. if the h100i is exhausting out of the case, the fans on it and the graphics card turn in opposite directions. could this be bad? the h100i pulling hot air from graphics card while the graphics card is trying to push cool air in the opposite direction. I think it would end up with no air between them and both would be starved for air. thanks
  8. http://legitreviews.com/images/news/2011/6950-1gb.jpg graphics card i will have 2 noctuas and one bitfenix fan and the h100i fans the power supply exhausts out the bottom thanks
  9. can an h100i be mounted in the bottom? if it can that would rock
  10. yea its a rather pain but I LOVE the look of the case and will be great for taking to college. thanks for the post! Anyone else have any ideas?
  11. Hi I am looking to get some suggestions of how to mount fans. I have a Prodigy M from bitfenix. In the top I have an H100i bottom 2x Noctua nf-s12 fans (random found them in my box o' stuff) (120 mm) rear bitfenix stock fan (120mm i believe) Power supply will exhaust out the bottom since the motherboard is inverted my graphics card (sapphire 6950) is right next to the H100i. my question is, which fans should be intakes and which ones should exhaust? if the h100i fans (stock) are exhausting are out, they are spinning in the opposite direction of the graphics card fan and are pushing hot graphics card air though the radiator. please help me, I really appreciate it! let me know what other information would be helpful
  12. thanks, I ordered the case (before i started this thread ) I will let you know how it goes! thanks for your help i really appreciate it!
  13. Does the 5.25 drive bay come out in the prodigy M? Cant imagine i would ruin a beautiful case buy putting a devilish DVD drive in the thing anyway!
  14. I have heard that the h100i is too thick for the prodigy M, any other suggestions or am i wrong about it not fitting? thanks for your replies!
  15. I am looking for a slim 240mm water cooler for the prodigy M It needs to be a pre-done liquid cooler like the h100i but with a slim radiator Anyone have any ideas? thanks
  16. I may be able to throw it on a machine and try it out
  17. The more damage you do trying to get them out, the more replacement components you will have to buy. It keeps the manufactures in business. Haha, I actually have no idea why they are so hard to get out. :)
