    Using liquid metal thermal compound to reduce laptop temps

    So basically, I've never really gamed too much on my laptop, but have been starting to do it more recently. It does get quite warm and loud however, so I wanted to try to reduce the temps a bit. I bought some Grizzly Conductonaut and gave it a shot. This is an MSI GT72 with a 6700HQ and a 980m...

    SILENCE! - Best quiet fans for Rads?

    Going to do a new build, not sure what platform. Debating a new 7700k vs a 6850k / 6900k. Maybe a Caselabs SMA8?, water cooled (4x120 or 4x140 each for CPU and GPU depending on case, Push fans) and maybe I'll try some hard lines this time around. I've got this thing against loud PCs, I want it...

    Secure remote access?

    Hey guys, I work a 14 day on , 14 day off rotation and for the past few years I have always left my PC on while I'm gone and had teamviewer running so that I could have unattended remote access to my files from wherever I am. It seemed to work extremely well. Very smooth, easy to use, I have it...

    Iphone 4S.... Failure or Genius?

    I really expected apple to bring out an iPhone 5 with some kind of innovative new features today, but all we see is the 4S. It appears to simply be the iPhone 4 upgraded with an A5 chip, 8MP camera and some new software... Apple (Canada) - iPhone 4S - The most amazing iPhone yet. I wonder if...

    Conservative Majority!

    YEAH! Finally! Looking at the results, it scares me how many people voted for the Socialists... Then again, voting for the BQ is retarded, and not matter how much A person might hate the Conservatives, no one wants to see Ignatieff as PM.

    Sandy bridge notebooks?

    I want to get a new laptop and was going to get an ASUS G73Jw, (mostly just because it looks so friggin cool) but I was kinda hoping they'd bring out an updated version with a 2600 CPU and a 5xx GPU. Desktops are being sold with these processors now, but when will the laptops be available? I...

    Does Size matter? (smartphones)

    Is it just me or would you guys prefer a bigger, more durable phone with a longer battery life? I really don't need a phone any smaller than the current ones. In fact I would much rather have a thick phone and have it durable with reasonable reception and battery life. I am using an iphone...

    Crossfire + Physx? Anyone doing this?

    I have read a few thread scattered across the net about this, but no good conclusions, nor any recent threads. I Plan to just ignore the 6xxx and 5xx cards all together and just wait wait to see what the next gen of CPUs,GPUs, and monitors are like before doing any serious upgrades. I was...

    Multiple Systems in "My System Specs" drop down

    Just curious how much of a PITA it would be to implement a second or even third system spec list in the "My System Specs" drop down beside the original one. Not really a big deal, but a lot of people are running multiple systems and if they are posting anything about their secondary rig they...

    GPU's have different clocks at idle using Afterburner ???

    I have my 2 x 5870s set to 1000 / 1350 right now using Afterburner. Both are flashed to the same ASUS bios. I seem to have a weird problem though. According to Afterburner, at Idle, GPU2 sits at 400 / 1350 just like it should. But GPU1 idles at 850 / 1200. Then, as soon as I open GPUZ...

    whining / squealing video card (5870)

    Considering that I am trying to build a very quiet PC, I'm not having too much luck. First I get a noisy SSD, now my video card is squealing like a stuck pig. I tested the video card out on air first just in case it was DOA. When the card worked, I proceeded to install an EK waterblock on it...

    Work in progress D's Dual loop 800d

    So, I wasn't really planning to do a build log, but to be honest, it was other peoples build logs that really helped me decide what I wanted, so I thought it would only be fair if I shared my experience as well. This will be more of a build summary and a quick review of each major...
