Re: MSI N1996 Motherboard with bad timer

the timer chip isn't a discrete part, it's either part of the super i/o chip or the southbridge. Either way you'll be hard pressed to get a replacement and actually swap it out unless you work with...

Re: SSD suggestions

Re: Broken am3+ socket -- info?

some sockets are through hole, but most are surface mount today.. It'll be a difficult process either way.. It'll probably take a hot air rework station to get the old socket off. It might be...

Re: Ratdude's Main rig V3.5

Re: Ratdude's Main rig V3.5

Good to see you have it up and running :) I think you might want to put the DIMM's in the black slots only to start with, then add them to the blues if you add more memory in the future. I...

Re: Ratdude's Main rig V3.5

Re: Ratdude's Main rig V3.5

Re: Ratdude's Main rig V3.5

Re: Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad?

how many sinks will you be streaming to? your disk i/o speed might well end up being your limiting factor. I think the 2.xGHz Core 2 Duo should be more than up to the task.
