    can you please consider NOT using caps for every single word?

    I am sure if you can afford that computer you can afford a keyboard that has a working caps lock... and turn the caps lock off...

    thanks

    Now that is depressing, I sent the company an email wanting more specific info, and OS stability, (basically a system that tweaked is bound to be unstable. I have not rec'd a reply as of yet, and judging from your post, I probably wont.

    I sent them an email wanting a custom system using the fx51. I have not rec'd a reply. I told them if it was possible I would purchase a system (not with all the LCDs).

    I would wait for more mature mobo's before diving into the highest of the high-end athlon systems...

    besides rumours abound about an fx-53 dropping in december... will have to wait and see about whether that is true or not...

    thanks for the heads up, man.

    Ya know when I built this current system it was the baddest thing around.....for about 2 weeks..lol

    Now its chopped liver; well, maybe not chopped liver but no longer impressive.

    The only thing I still like is the UV stuff, weeeeeeeeeeee

    heh... yah UV is nice :)

    my northbridge fan lights up like crazy but since I do most of my work with little lights or dark @ night (I am in the light/day light all day @ university) I don't want lights to distract me... I had contemplated getting a case window but decided against it eventually...

    take some caps of the rig :) perhaps we can start a new thread with case pics :D

    wow, I like that refridgeration system.

    That should be on all PCs in the future, with like an extraction point some place on the back or something, where all the heat from the motors leave. It would be a perfect (if expensive) solution to fans and alot more efficient Imagine a refrigerated case, it would chill your components and it could double up as a beer cooler :D.

    You could maybe try sticking a mini air conditioner in your case if it was big enough and plug it into a seperate power supply :cool:

    expensive, unreliable, a lot of extraneous heat, and not very quiet.

    keep in mind refridgerators only kick on for a couple minutes every now and then. if the motor ran constantly it wouldn't take long for it to bust.

    for the grease?

    the grease will change compostition over time but should likely stay for a long time once it achieves consistency...

    the dryness is not shocking though...
