Re: Motherboard grounding questions

It's looking pretty good :D Looks like you can get the motherboard to sit a bit lower by using different screws on the underside of the heatsink or chopping down the existing ones, It shouldn't be hard to find screws with the same thread in a general hardware store (usually they are M4 thread). If y...

Re: So long and thanks for all the chips

The penny drops. Done a bit of reading I think I understand a bit more why this forum suddenly got so quiet around 2012 now :lol: I never payed much attention to the actual website - I just came here for the forum. I noticed that channelpro had taken over the front page but thought Elric had just so...

Re: Motherboard grounding questions

Not quite sure how you've got things set up right now, photos would be nice :) Ideally you want an air gap on the underside of the board but you will probably be fine attaching with velcro providing bit of the board don't short out onto metal, stuff touching plastic pad should be fine, as long as th...

Re: Let It Snow..

Looking at my last post I apologise for going OTT, this is an emotive topic but that isn't a reason to make things personal in any way so sorry about that. When I am looking at stuff like this I try my best to look at the information from a 3rd person perspective to make sure I am weighing things up...

So long and thanks for all the chips

I've thought it ever so slightly pompous when people have done 'I'm leaving' posts in the past. However I now find myself writing one myself :D So why I chosen to post that I am leaving? Firstly for some finality, having written this I am far more likely to actually do it and not find myself driftin...

Re: Motherboard grounding questions

Wait a sec... Are you trying to put a PC inside the case for a Creative x-Fi? If so I think that is awesome, but there are a few things you are going to need to think about. Are you running an external PSU? You may need to chop a hole in the top of the case, above the CPU cooler so it can suck in co...

Re: Motherboard grounding questions

Hope I'm not getting the wrong end of the stick here. Heatsink screws just touching the case unlikely to cause you any problem. Would be a problem if it is pushing up the motherboard against tension of mobo fixing screws and bowing the motherboard though. Motherboard not screwed down, using velcro e...

For a moment I thought I'd be the earliest member to reply to this thread, but Mark has me beat there.

Re: Forum hacked

Various pages are still down, I actually quite like Quorthon though.
The hacker celebrates is crimes on his facebook wall.
I reported it to Facebook and they don't do anything despite this clearly being against their community standards.

http://www.longrangeweather.com/global_temperatures.htm I am curious as to why you brush aside the report from the US national academy if science anf the Royal Society without even a single word, and choose to believe thia guy instead. Do you think his data is more reliable? Because he doesnt even ...
