    Thanks, at least I can thank Deltru (and you) for making sure and get my firmware updated

    Silly question maybe but can you update the firmware through a mounted image (Daemon) ?

    I figured since it's a builds thread it's okay to post this, if not a mod can delete it it is a builds thread after all, right.

    Swifty's new PC, funny to see what people with money but not too much computer knowledge gets, Speaking of RAM overkill (Epic Mealtime "ripoff"):

    a PSU, is only too much or a waste when you are on a budget, there is technically nothing wrong with using a 1500w PSU in a 200w HTPC, whats wrong is when you are on a budget and you can spend less on a PSU and more elsewhere, then you have overkill

    That I will personally never agree with. A suitable PSU is always better, in my book.
    However, while I don't agree with your opinion, I'd fight to the death for your right to express it. :P

    I'm already brimming with excitement regarding what a watercooled 7970 could do! Definitely keep us updated on how your build is going dude, it'll have the latest stuff on these forums by the sound of it.

    Also, gosh you have such white hands o_O or maybe the lighting is making it look that way :P

  13. #5773
    I believe the new Galaxy SII phone overexposes slightly, so I'm probably slightly whiter on the pictures than in real life. Although I'm still pretty darn white I don't believe I'm unusually so.

  14. #5774
    are you cooling this in a level 10 gt? what kind of rad setup?

  15. #5775
    I won't be cooling it in the Level 10 GT. This is why I'm rather annoyed, as the case which I'm supposed to build everything in has been delayed by a week now.

    The build will be going into the Raven 01 case using a 180 rad in both of the default 180mm fan positions. If possible, I'm also going to order and fit a third rad in the bottom by the powersupply.

    Is that a subtle clue?

    Just picked up a new Cyborg R.A.T. 7 in black. Looks like they updated it to 6400 dpi from the original 5600!
