How to connect extra case fans for Skybuck's Dream PC (2006) ? by Skybuck Flying
Hello, I have bought almost all components of Skybuck's Dream PC (2006). The only thing which is missing is the case and some case fans. (The only other thing I did not order is the diskdrive 7-in-1 card reader. It was not available and I probably don't really need it, since floppy disks are not...

Heating up my CPU & glad for Arctic Silver by Charlie Wilkes
A couple of weeks ago I removed the thermal pad on my CPU and replaced it with a thin smear of Arctic Silver, which dropped the temperature about 5 degrees C. A discussion ensued in which a number of people made the point that I didn't achieve any performance gain. I agreed, because all my test...

The power supply on my old flex atx machine died so it's my excuse to get a new case/psu. I've been on newegg and googled but can't find a tiny enclosure for just the power supply and motherboard.

Back-up Options - Which is the best? by Steve Wade
Hi Guys, Since researching optical media on the Internet and coming across all sorts of stories about the very short life of the inks used in these things, my present back-up method - CD-R & DVD - seems less than ideal. So I was thinking a need for a better but cheap solution is needed. Does...

Epox Mobos? by Dave Hardenbrook
My current self-built system has an Epox Mobo (from 2002), and because it's been good to me, I was planning to use an Epox in a custom-built system for a client. However, I've found that none of the retail chains (CompUSA, Microcenter, Fry's, &c.) carry Epox Mobos anymore. Why not? Are they no...

Making a Hard-Wired Dvorak Keyboard. by [email protected]
I'm interested in making a "hard-wired" Dvorak keyboard. I'm thinking it's just a matter of altering the keyboards bios and would be the same a changing the language of the keyboard.

Inspiron 1150 lcd compatibilty problems? by fidgitty1
First I guess I need to ask, are Inspiron 1150 and 1100 lcds compatible? I am hoping so since, after breaking the lcd on my 1150, I shopped around and discovered a 1100 lcd on Ebay for a fraction of the cost of a new 1150 lcd. Since there were a lot of listings that stated that the 1150 and 1100...
