Re: Better Panel for Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Laptop

It's funny, Dell has replied that the cable is part number MC2TT, which is what I already have, so they seem to have no clue what I'm talking about... so, you are amazing. Thank you. I will order the...

Re: Better Panel for Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Laptop

Better Panel for Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Laptop

Got this for free it's pretty much the perfect laptop, with a backlit keyboard, they already upgraded to 16GB RAM and a 500GB SSD, etc. but the screen sucks - it's a 1366x768 TN panel. I'm assuming...

Re: Best cheap way to cool AMD FirePro S7000?

If anyone else has a working S7000 and a dead Asus HD6970, the cooler from the HD6970 works great. Just FYI. Haha.

Thermaltake Smart 500W... will the Crapacitors last?

Scored this for $20 BNIB sealed. Why do cheap power supplies smell worse when you first open the package than expensive ones, that is one thing I've never understood...

Anyway, it's got a bunch of...

Re: Asus KFN5-D SLI Kinda Retro-ish Rescue / Build

Honestly, I'd put the 560Ti cards in there. Far more useful long term:

Re: Best cheap way to cool AMD FirePro S7000?

I know, it is definitely quite nice looking. Unfortunately it was just too noisy. I left that pretty but whiny solution on one of my cards and put it in one of my servers where it will be useful but...

Re: Best cheap way to cool AMD FirePro S7000?

That's an idea too. Hmm. Will try just powering them directly from 5V if it's not noisy I'll leave it like that if it is you're right I could use a fan controller and put them in series. Smart!

Re: Best cheap way to cool AMD FirePro S7000?

For $50 for an adapter not worth it :'( hence why I ended up with two cards. I will simply put one monitor per card.

Best cheap way to cool AMD FirePro S7000?

Got these for a very attractive price, my problem is they are passively cooled and I need to find a way to cool them. The S7000 is pretty much identical to the FirePro W7000, except that it has less...
