    Does your room temp go up when you game?

    I have no window (long story), and I have 4 computers running, that's: 1x GTX 680 1x GTX 650Ti 1x HD 7750 3x Core i5 3550 1x Core i7 3930k TL;DR: Yes, it gets very hot in here very quickly. I have to have the air conditioning on 24x7 (mainly for ventilation, mind you). <small rant>Power here is around 30c per kilowatt hour too - so this is not a cheap or advised thing to do</small rant> Temperature Stats: Prior to turning of air conditioning: 295.15 degrees K (22 C [71.6 f]) After 30 minutes: 300.15 degrees K (32 C [89.6 f]) After 1 hour: 305 degrees Kelvin (37 C [98.6 f]) And this is during the winter! I could not do this experiment in the summer...

    Experiences with non-techies

    There is, in Australia (http://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/mobiles-on-a-plan/index.htm#filter/brand//os//features//plan/s/sort/featured), on Telstra's lowest end mobile plan, data costs $110/GB, and they used to have an ADSL2+ plan which cost $50 / month and got you 5GB data...

    The Craziest computer hardware you can think of

    I don't even know if 2 sockets would fit onto an MITX board, especially with those 16 ram slots!

    What’s the worst part of your rig?

    My most hated thing is probably it's heat output, I live in the tropics (Cairns, North Queensland, AU), where it is really hot and humid so I have to have my A/C on 24x7. Current room temp: 22C humidity: 50%. Lovely. PS. It's a liquid cooled, overclocked 3930K, GTX 680 4GB, GTX 650Ti (for aux displays) 1GB, 32GB RAM, 120 + 60GB SSD (Mac, Windows) and 2x2TB HDDs.

    Website UI suggestions

    Hi, I am developing a website for my dad's welding and fabrication business and I am looking for tips on usability, while also maintaining good looks. I apologise in advance for the slow load time, this site is on a dev server in my office, and, being in Australia, the internet is really slow (approx. 400Kbps) upload. The link to the site is below. http://fish.cairnspc.com/psw_dev/ Thanks

    Website UI suggestions

    Thanks everybody for your suggestions! I will continue working on the site and change the CSS so that it looks nicer on smaller screens, and, because this is a dev version, the CSS is in an embedded stylesheet, in production it will be on an external stylesheet, also the production site will use a JQuery CDN, not sure it I'll use Google's CDN or JQuery's CDN, both seem popular enough. The blurry images are just placeholder images, I am going on site today with my DSLR to get some decent images, and also some video. The site loads slowly because of the development server's upload speed (0.4 Mbps). Thanks again for the feedback.

    Website UI suggestions

    Thanks for the advice, I'm trying to make this site as user friendly as possible for "normal", non computer orientated people. That's odd, what browser are you using? I've tried it in Chrome 33 for Mac and Safari 5.

    my schools pc (massive overkill)

    At my school we have core 6 labs x 30 computers with i7 3770s with GTX 660Tis. 32GB RAM and 120GB SSDs. Our storage server has 24 x 4TB HDDs in RAID 6 and multiple fibre links to each building. Our WiFi is 802.11AC 1700Mbps too. But our internet is 4 x 10Mbps ADSL connections , though, just when the lunch bell rings and everybody logs off, you can get 35 - 40 Mbps down and 4 up! (Which for Cairns, QLD, Australia is really good!)
  10. A new internet connection that is faster than 7Mbps/300Kbps to go with a nice new Asus router would be a great present!

    Mains Voltage

    I'll start with the events of the morning; The lights brighten, my UPSs (multiple UPS) start humming away and their obnoxious cooling fans go to full throttle. Why you ask? Well, my power company, Ergon Energy, cannot supply the right voltage to my street. Around 18 months ago, Ergon put a transformer at the end of my street to boost the line voltage, because prior to this, it was sitting around 210 volts. After putting in the aforementioned transformer, it decided that it was going to explode, and proceeded to do so, on a Sunday morning at 5 AM. Ergon came, pulled down the 75 KVA transformer, and put in a 100 KVA transformer. This was 1 week ago, and, ever since then, my mains voltage has been between 247 and 259 volts when it is supposed to be between 220 and 240 volts, not 259. So, my question... Has anybody else ever had a gross over voltage of the mains? Where? and after what (if any) change?
  12. It is with a heavy heart I write this, but the coalition government appears to have one, along with a politician who thinks that 25Mbps up is a good thing and is cutting edge in Australia. Click Here to watch a video in relation to Abbot's internet. What does this mean? This means that the internet in Australia, which is already outdated, is going to be limited to copper speeds. Abbot's plan involves running fibre to the ends of the street and copper back to the homes, which results in 2 things: -Slow internet -TARDIS sized boxes at the end of each street Abbot has successfully brought our country back in time. Well done Abbot! You win! We loose! Out of pure sadness, I have changed my business' homepage in protest of Abbot's Internet. Click Here to view. What do you think about Australia and it's internet?

    "Abbot's Internet" - Australia's Internet

    Rufee,I agree with you in that cat5/6 can do gigabit, however our government is using the existing cat 3 &4 which is limited to (theoretically) 10 and 16 Mbps respectively.

    Modem Overheating

    Hello Everybody, So I have this modem, and I have had it for a while, but it recently started overhearing for some unknown reason. I contemplated putting a heatsink in the main processor, however I did not have one that did not interfere with other components, so I found a (what I think) very original solution: My question is has anyone else ever done anything silly but necessary like this?

    Modem Overheating

    Hello Mrenusso, It's not the power brick, I have tried several different power bricks to no avail. I think that it is the fact that I recently got a 1 megabit/s increase in my connection speed, and that it is hammered 24/7 by my family and myself. Thanks for the reply!
  16. NBN Fibre is coming soon to my house, maybe... For me it's really the ping and the upload speed that kills. That and the fact that it is the fastest service I can get!
  17. You have no idea how much I want these... I have an OK gaming PC, but for the classes I do at school (Graphics with Auticad and Autodesk inventor ect.) an i5 and 12GB RAM is reeeeallly slow. Thanks to Linus, Slick, Diesel, Intel and Gigabyte.
