Are you talking about loldozer? Not good for gaming, great at calculating pi.

Speaking strictly in terms of superpi, it's terrible because BD emulates x87.

You know what I meant. Bad for things you want it to be good at, good at things that don't matter at all.

Then tap it with a hammer

Although there is one thing that it is great at doing, and that is effectively killing any chance in hell AMD had of catching up with intel.

The best part about the whole BD fiasco is trolling AMD news threads on OCN. Hell, every intel or AMD related thread, be it about SSDs, mobos, GPUs, etc, can be turned into a BD trollfest.

The 12 hours or so after BD launched were particularly epic because you could just feel the tears flowing from the AMDtards who weren't completely in denial.

Any cheap 120mm fans that are quieter than my Antec fan?

Think that's what I have now. Want something fairly cheap.

What's this about cats?

I'm using a fan controller, so any fans with a molex connection or 3 pin connection should work I think.


Which basically means everything. Not sure why I bothered writing this.


That one looks good Jagov. Nice and orange too.

This is what I made the other day, but after looking at reviews, I am going to be getting a different MoBo, case, mouse, and a PSU (if the case doesn't have one). Any recommendations?

You can get 16 now for what I *should* have paid for DDR2 back when I did my Q6600 build. Grab 16, because **** logic.


I should have paid less. MUCH less.

4 is good enough 8 if you really need it and 16 is just being retarded.
