  2. Re: Caution: Compiling code on fast computer may cause system shutdown

    What's your ambient temp AmEv? I lower my OC a bit in summer. In winter, I crank it up and crack a window when the room starts getting warm. Winter is one hell of a heat sink.

    Re: Ideas and suggestions for Deathproof mod

    Paint the case satin black, then the white skull and lightning. Spray paint trim and such chrome. Then smash the front in with a 20lb sledge hammer.

    Re: 60GB SSDs?

    What country are you in? In the US it starts before both Halloween and Thanksgiving. I'm all for capitalism but damn. Dollar signs blot out common sense 99.9% of the time.
