    Win Nvidia 3D Vision bundle

    It helps that SKYMTL lives in Quebec and would know all of the ins and outs. I, however, do not. I might have to talk to him about it and see if he can give me some ideas of how to get around things. For what it's worth, we still have folks from Quebec enter, but the caveat is that if they...

    Xonar Essence STX Comment thread

    Cool preview, thanks! This card has interested me greatly since I first learned of it a few months ago. Leave it to ASUS to come up with an audio card specific to headphone users... it's great. I love their dedication so far to audio and I hope it keeps up... they really aren't half-assing...

    HMMMM Suspicious?!?!

    I have never thought too much of 3D Gameman's web site, so when I saw an e-mail sitting in my inbox this morning about this, it didn't come as much of a surprise. The fact of the matter is, the image used in that video review is undoubtedly SKYMTL's and the fact that Rodney continually denies it...

    Overclocking E6600, weird results

    Ignore what the Windows system properties say. "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz" is the processor name, it's not reading a live speed. CPU-z is the one to pay attention to. It likely says 2400MHz because it decreased the speed because there was no intensive application running. Load up...

    Intel to speed up introduction of 1333MHz CPUs, ditching 1066

    It sucks, but at least most 1066FSB motherboards will handle 1333FSB without any voltage boosts. Even still though...

    DDR3 anyone?

    That sums things up perfectly. You can get a solid 2GB DDR2 kit for $150, or a sub-par DDR3 kit for $300 and not notice a single difference, real-world. Not worth it at this point in time unless you need to run 1:1 ratio with the upcoming 1333FSB processors.

    DailyTech sets up sting for crooked techsites.

    DailyTech did a good job of putting everything together... it must've taken a -lot- of damn work. Was it worth it? Who knows. Without a list of guilty sites, it seems like there wasn't much point. I agree with sswilson on this point, "I believe the article states that "positive content" wasn't...

    Coolit announces reference cooling system for 2900xt X-Fire

    Kudos to CoolIT for really getting their name out there. It's been an incredible year for them. The best part is that they are fellow Canucks ;-)

    Corsair announces world's fastest DDR3

    You got that right, haha. It's too bad that Corsair wasn't really the first, as many enthusiasts around the web accomplished that feat last month. Team Group also has a 2000MHz kit on display as well, but they are not getting too much attention for it.

    DailyTech sets up sting for crooked techsites.

    My site is one that they contacted, and yes, I refused the bribe. I also wish they would publish the list. I can see their reasons for not doing so, but would you give much credibility to a news program if they gave reports on restaurants that were not up to code, and then not mention the names...

    ASUS P5K3 Deluxe WiFi-AP review by TechGage

    Aye, it was 2.4GHz all around. Because the CPU used a 1066FSB, it used the same multipliers and FSB on all the boards. Once Penryn launches with a 1333FSB, will be a little more difficult to keep it at 2.4GHz like the rest.

    ASUS P5K3 Deluxe WiFi-AP review by TechGage

    Each motherboard used the exact same hardware, except for the memory of course. The P5K3 used Kingstons DDR3-1375 kit while the DDR2 boards used OCZs NVIDIA 7200 kit, which I mentioned here: DDR2 memory is run at DDR2-800 speeds with 4-4-4-12-2T timings at 1.9v DDR3 memory is run at DDR3-1066...

    Sapphire's not shining any more!!!!

    You can consider yourself fortunate that you just ran into black screen issues and that's all. I was in a similar situation as you a few years ago with BFG's 6800GT card. The first two cards reached their temp threshold easily, so I had to RMA them. The third card sparked, killing my monitor...

    Why the console war is over: OCModShop

    I'm not sure I'd consider there to be a console war as well, but many people who thoroughly enjoy their Xbox or PS3 will not enjoy the Wii, myself included. There is a reason why the Wii sells so well. It's cheap, and uses "cool" motion control. If the Wii didn't have that motion control, I'd be...

    Distro with some kind of Lightscribe support?

    I haven't used YaST for quite a while, but when you choose to install it, there should be a tab that shows all of the files that are installed. More often than not, the program you will need is under /usr/bin. Just check to see if it shows a file list anywhere, then you could find out how to...

    Linux first to crash :(

    As if Windows doesn't have driver issues ;-) Somebody just didn't know how to properly recompile the engine. It happens.

    This is true, but I am still skeptical. It wouldn't be the first time I had results that were completely wrong.

    Mushkin 4GB XP2-8500 review by techPowerUp!

    True that, they are priced ridiculously. One of the reasons is because they have to cherry pick every single one of the kits. Not many chips designed for 2GB modules will be able to do 1066MHz reliably. tPU! didn't really show how far those modules could be pushed via overclocking though...

    Distro with some kind of Lightscribe support?

    Yeah definitely post your experiences even if you succeed. I have never touched Lightscribe (even in Windows) so I'd love to know how well it works under Linux.
