    They are 200mm fans.

    I probably didn't need them but the truth of the matter is I wanted an excuse to buy a touchscreen fan controller :P

    Oh and the board on the other side is an xbox 360.
    LOL! Ah, I would probably have done the same. I understand why I didn't recognize the other bit as I've never seen the 360 out of it's shell.

    Taking one apart I can see why the 360's had trouble with cooling.

    Do you have a link stating that? I thought they had it for the next 10 years. I expect it to go prior to that but I don't see a reason why they wouldn't use it for a bit first.

    I heard about those issues. I'm guessing it was pretty tight in there and the cooling wasn't up to par.

    Microsoft Lumia 920 sounds great! Nokia however is a global brand so getting rid of it might not be a good idea.

    We're not discussing this here. I'm just pasting the news. Also the Lumia brand will go with the Nokia name too. It's gone, get over it.

    Similar to my PC at home I was shocked how tight they can be couldn't upgrade the RAM!

    Okay I have this ram:

    Patriot Sector 5 Series PC3-12800 1600MHz Dual Channel (PGV34G1600ELK)

    My motherboard Asus P7p55D Pro is capable of running at double-data-rate through 2 slots on the motherboard for ram, but one of the slots of broken meaning it won't run double data rate anymore.

    I need to replace my mobo at some point because of this, but I also want to upgrade my RAM to around 8-16 GB for future-proofing and so I don't have to upgrade it when I do upgrade my mobo (and CPU). So my predicament is... what's the cheapest good quality RAM I can get that's a reasonable size I'm looking for, and is DDR3 still the top standard?

    Mobo has 4 DIMM channels for the RAM - just switch to the other 2 free channels??

    DDR3 is good enough for general use - at the moment the expense of the DDR5 doesn't make up for the increase in memory.

    Anything from Kingston or Corsair is pretty good quality

    Yeah I'm using it in the other 2 free channels but the remaining channels don't run on double-data-rate. Only 2 specific channels in combination will run like that. It sucks.

    I was just thinking to myself. There was a time I cared about all the computer stuff. I used to know quite a bit but it's been so long that I built anything that I can't be bothered learning about it! I still have desires to build a media centre of some sort. Not sure about a table. :P

    Well, my day is moving slowly... Waiting on a tow truck who is 25 min late, turns out he got a flat tire... I swear, some days aren't worth the trouble. My car has a gas leak, apparently from the oil change/fuel filter replacement on Tues.
