Otherwise I'd have voted for the original halflife.

We're talking about single player experiences I assume, because all multiplayer experience is entirely unrepeatable based on you connection, where you connect to and who you play with.

Antec TP430 is the only PSU I have bought seperately that has died on me. Died at boot up just like those cheap 'free-with-the-case' ones sometimes do. I build machines for other people and I don't use antec anymore. Their warranty is brilliant, but I won't get new customers if people hear that my m...

the fan that came with my 3700BQE (basicly a sonata without the paintjob or ANTEC hole pattern) is very weak, I replaced it for cooling performance.


Any chance you can give me the make and model number of the one that comes in the BQE? I could do with one with a low RPM at stock 12V.

Hey look, I know I've only got three forum posts or something like that, but I've been overclocking since my P133, and selling machines as an on-the-side business for over 5 years.

there are two types of decibel ratings, called different things, but there's an absoloute scale and either a normal, attenuated, adjusted etc scale. Decibel ratings are all dependent on the scale and measuring distance, so the numbers are as easy to manipulate for manufacturers as the PMPO rating on...

If it's a fan you want to throttle with a baybus, I can recommend the ball-bearing enermax fans above all else, These come with a tiny rheostat pre-attached and make sure you get that version. Unlike other fans, they run exremely well at ALL speeds where some otherwise quiet fans emit unwanted motor...

- Been plaugued by these things for ages, and got so annoyed with them that I switched to Mozilla which is totally immune - all these problems with popups, ad's hijacks and sripting exploits are down to bugs in Microsoft's IE. Whilst I was still using IE though, I used a combination of the following...
