You definitely don't need to install Zune software, that's for sure. Windows Media Player does the job the same.

Did you keep the Rick Astley tape for a prop?

Because let's face it, it'd fit into a thousand sketches during this internet age, where Rick Astley is suddenly the most respected musician of all time.

An aberration? To look at history, nuclear weapons are merely a continuation of a trend, and the fact that they haven't been used is the aberration.

Maybe "abomination" would fit your intended meaning better?

Re: The US armed forces: the last people to entrust nukes to

Also, the chances of said bombs exploding is... remote at best. In fact, I'd take a guess that a natural nuclear bomb forming and exploding is more likely than those things exploding. MAKING them go boom in the first place is a tricky process, and a hard hit or a lightning strike isn't anywhere clos...

Re: nVidia Sucks

Feh, liquid cooling. Way too much effort for the benefit. My rules are simple: Buy quality hardware. Buy faster rather than overclocking. Have fans at the front pushing in with a filter, have fans at the back pushing out. Make sure the air has a clear path inside the case, and have heatsinks clip th...

Removing the side panel *will* reduce temps, unless you run a lot of fans pushing some pretty ridiculous CFM the side panel coming off will increase the amount of fresh air getting to your components. Graphics cards in particular work better with no side panel, even if your case has a fan on the si...

Re: nVidia Sucks

Having the side of your PC open generally worsens airflow pretty badly. The proper way is to have a fan blowing in at the front and out at the back, having a filter at the front to catch dust. That way, you get a flow of clean air through the case. The reason it's from front to back is because the P...
