  • Lets see if we can put a face to a name. My girly & I at a cousin's wedding reception last September. :) The day you catch me with a beard is the day Schick's gone out of business. It seems like I haven't aged a day in 5 years. Ensign Babyface…
  • Wishing all of you here @ Icrontic a safe & joy-filled Christmas season. :)
  • Getting an e-mail from Icrontic.com was a bit of a surprise. The even larger surprise was reading the contents of that e-mail. :) Looks like the move was a success. I'm not much of a regular anymore (and haven't been for a long time), but I still …

  • I'm under this impression for the spring lineup of NV G8x products... 8950 GX2: 2xG80's on new 0.08u process. 575 MHz ROP Domain. 1700 MHz Shader Domain. 512 MB GDDR4 @ 2000 MHz for each core (256-bit interface). 96 stream processors per GPU. 8900…
  • Why not put a face to a name. It's only been what... 4 years now? =) Exam crunch time, late nights and a nighthawk girlfriend makes for some pretty nice black circles under the eyes. :)
  • 3 Days of 41*C+ temperatures (with a toasty ~70% humidity)... + a series of severe thunderstorms. + lightning out the wazoo. + baseball-sized hail. + a 7*C drop in under 45 minutes. + Multiple F1/F2 tornado's. = 170,000 people without power. :) …

  • Very first car? Picked up an old 84' Plymouth Reliant in 2000 (aka.. I was 17) for dirt cheap. 60,000 KM's, like freakin new inside. However, since it had sat inside a damp garage for about 2 years prior to this, the body wasn't exactly in great sha…
  • Forgive the bumpage of an older thread... but it seemed appropriate versus creating a new one. =) Hard to believe it's been a year since I was last @ SM. To those who have sent me PM's over the last year... my appologies for not getting back sooner…
  • I remember using an old DFI Super Socket 7 motherboard with a K6-2 400, and having it burn out (taking the CPU & memory with it) back in early 2000. They really were cheap pieces of **** back then. DFI has really stepped up to the plate in the…
  • I suppose it all comes down to individual preferences. Personally, I find my MX700 weighs too much for my liking. Considering I like to keep my arm stationary on the desk and just move my wrist & fingers while grasping the mouse during all FPS …
  • All the best Dan! :)

  • Neat :)
  • Want to see the results of lake effect on a winter storm? :) This is what it looked like on Saturday afternoon here right on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Most of it was ice from the windy conditions blowing water up onto the cement pier (it's u…
  • Anyone got pics of their monitor in action? DAMN. 21" Widescreen LCD. Nice monitors guys. Now if Dell would just hurry up and release that UltraScan 2405FPW (ETA March)... 24" LCD widescreen goodness, 1920x1200, 12ms response time, DVI s…
  • February Desktop Screen Resolution: 2048x1536 (Not 56K Friendly)
  • Frig. Just when I thought I hit the jackpot. I think bothered is right... it's pretty much burnt in. No resolution, connection cable or refresh rate removes the crispy area. DAMMIT. Okay. Thanks guys. Time to lug it back to the store & get a …
  • Monitor works perfectly fine other than that damned line. Splits the screen right in half :( AFAIK, Degauss still works (well, when I run it through the OSD, the image shakes, rattles & rolls before returning back to normal). I assume this to b…
  • Weekends on the Canadian version of G4-TechTV consist of this. The Screen Savers. Call For Help. REPEAT AD INFINIUM. It's like the TV station is stuck in a temporal causality loop... replaying the same 2 shows back to back for 10-12 hours straight…
  • :( Soon all we're going to have left is EA & Microsoft producing games for XBox & PC. :(
  • It was 18*C here last Saturday, a new record high for January 15. Shorts and a T-Shirt in JANUARY. Absurd up here :) Yesterday's balmy high out here in the 'burbs of Toronto? -28*C (-19*F). Add the windchill and you have -40*C (-40*F) and an Extrem…
  • ForceWare 67.02 has given me the best performance in HL2 & CS:S. Most other 67.xx & 68.xx series drivers gave me the yellow/no water bug, or else shimmering surfaces.
  • (Quote) Vapourware put through its' paces. HardOCP: 2, Infinium: 0
  • Shuffled a few things around & added more systems. 2 more P4's on the way this week.
  • I wonder what speeds you would see delivered to a home using 1-AWT Tri-PLEX electrical conductor versus a home using 3-AWT, and if there would be major speed differences depending on your physical distance from the closest pad/pole-mount transformer…

  • Yep. Newcastle-core based FX (SH7-CG). :) I actually shot for 300 HTT last night @ 1:1 HTT:MEM. It wasn't pretty (was testing with ClockGen). It will engage & operate at 300 HTT 1:1 2.5-3-3-7-11-16-1T @ 2.85V, but about 30 seconds in... BAM. B…
  • Just for you Mack :) 2x512 MB TCCD, 1:1 HTT:MEM, 2.5-3-3-7-11-16-1T, Dual Channel @ 2.85V. Not a suicide run either... there's still the OCZ DDR Booster to break out, as this poor K8N Neo2 tops out @ 2.85V VDIMM :( Oh... and phase change just mig…

  • (Quote) NCIX usually is about 7-10 days behind the US Launch. At least they were on the DFI LanParty 250GB. Glad to know the board is available! Thanks for the update! :)
  • Well the jury is still out on how far the memory will overclock, but the CPU runs @ 2800 MHz (200x14 @ 1.55V, memory 1:1 2-2-2-5-11-16-1T) 24/7 and hasn't crashed in the past 2 months. The CPU still has lots of headroom left in it, but with the K8N …
  • NCIX.com will have them in just after the US launch. Look @ Canada Computers to have them within a month after that. That DFI NF4 board is looking very tasty...
  • No way. They aren't mine (but I'd love to own one or two some day). Just some ideas for how to efficiently organize the stacks themselves for those who don't want to shell out the cash for a case for each system they build.
  • Consider building a wooden rack-mount unit to house the different systems you don't want (or need) a case for. Go for the gold.... set up a Yattamonster (or in this case... the STOMP Monster & Crunchy Hog)...
  • 2 Words: Fridge Cart :)
  • Additionally, consider the OCZ ModStream lineup of PSU's if you're die-hard on a modular PSU. AFAIK, they are custom-modified Tagan units designed exclusively for OCZ. http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/power_management/ocz_modstream_power_supp…

  • I would say that idle members don't currently help, but at one point they did contribute to the overall success of the team. Whether that be in small or large quantities, the fact remains that the help was there at one time and they should not so ea…
  • These are extra USB headers you've hooked up right? They are enabled in the BIOS, correct? :)

  • Turns out the culpret was a faulty Intel Desktop Control Center installation. I'm thinking the SMBIOS driver install screwed with the readings and somehow wrote them to the BIOS, because when I uninstalled the IDCC and installed the Intel Hardware M…

  • Kewl. I flashed the latest BIOS onto the board (0022 - whatever that means) and it hasn't helped at all. Still the same readings. The funny thing? Zone 1 & Zone 2 are right next to eachother on the board. I've got room temp @ roughly 15*C rig…
