    Older Gigabyte GPUs were known for it, as are newer MSI GPUs and motherboards.
    When I had Vsync off on the Wow loading screen, it sounded like an orchestra of crickets.

    Which reminds me. I should go sleep. But do tell if you try out different things and what comes off of it.

    I can attest to this, my first LGA1155 board (MSI) had loud coil whine when the computer was idling (something about the board where lower demand causes the board to go down to 1 VRM to save power). Went away when I forced it to use all VRMs at all times.

    Yeah I thought you were talking about the whole cooler.

Seen some feedback on Newegg with other people having their Spinpoint F3's failing at the 1-1.5 year mark. I better do a full fucking backup and quickly! Haven't backed up in years.

    Anyone recommend a decent backup software (hassle-free and easy to use please! Don't care if it costs), or is the Windows backup utility still perfectly fine?
    I use acronis. Very easy to use and only costs something like 20 bucks from amazon. Of course, I haven't had to use it to do anything other than make a backup of a drive, because so far nothing has broken (knocks on wood).

    First rule of backing up is to always try to restore the backup.

    At work our servers do a daily backup and once a week we restore them to a local test site to ensure the failsafe works. Actually had to do a full restore earlier this week due to some files being corrupted.

    was reading a post on reddit about how WPA2-Enterprise can be cracked if they are using MSCHAPv2

    and all that was happening in the comments was 1 guy getting upvoted for saying a 20 digit password makes you safe, and every post by someone with infosec/ceh knowledge getting downvoted to hell (most of them were discussing that WPA/2-PSK has been cracked for a while)

    i think people are just too scared to admit that their wifi is not truly safe

    hmm, sometimes i think there should be test to let people on the internet, that or i just don't like being downvoted

    Which is why I'm heavily against communities that sort comments/thread from votes.
    What people want to be true and what they want to read is not always what is true and what is important.

    Man this is some freaky shit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vSYf...&feature=g-u-u

    It's amazing how some simple things can surprise. I mean, we have the technology and it's become affordable for general use, why not do something fun with it.

    Seriously, how cool is that? I'm just mind blown. The fact that it's not some new fancy concept made by chinese but an actual product that anyone can buy . Can you imagine having things like this when you were a kid?

    Nope, Deltrus is just weird like that

    I usually just have one or two open depending on what I'm looking up and close the ones I'm not looking at actively.

    It just struck me, that with Haswell coming Q2 '13, 1155 will have had an extremely short lifespan.
    Curious.
