Re: AMD CEO Dirk Meyer Resigns

I think Dirk did many good jobs but he was too quiet.
He's not like Hector but I really don't like Hector for his direction.

Re: The best anti virus program

I bought and installed NIS 2010 on Intel D510MO (Atom processor 1.66 GHz) with Win7 and yeah, I am happy with my purchase.
NIS 2010 consumes a little bit more memory than Panda Cloud Antivirus but on the CPU usage, I feel no different.

Re: Anandtech hit with malware

That's why I've seen many spams (Nike Air, e.g.) in comments on Anandtech.
Today my FireFox also warned me about this risk but I ignored. :-?
Hopefully my Norton Internet Security 2010 should do their work.

Re: Phenom or Athlon II

Oh, I was late to this thread but here's my opinion.
I have no regret getting X3 720 instead of Athlon II.
I don't miss my old Athlon 5600+ any more.
Now my overall system response is much better.

Re: Fallout 3 DLC (Worth It?)

Broken Steel will add more 10 levels to the game
but it will also make your gameplay more difficult.
All in all, Fallout 3 DLC is a must-have.

Re: Spicy Foods

You don't know the real spicy until you taste some Thai foods. I can't help laughing when I saw some chef (can't remember his name) showed how to cook Thai food on Food Network (or some TV channel) long time ago. And Sriracha sauce, you should try this one if you have a chance. http://gmsauce.com/Sr...

Re: RAM Cooler

I guess you are using Intel Core i7 (socket 1366)
so if it's in that case, try to check memory support list from you motherboard's website first.
Or test other RAM with your board if it's possible and also test your RAM on other working board.
