The article on Intels fine in the EU has a slight error which might have been updated in a newer version: Intel CEO Paul Otellini claims the EC's decision to impose a €1.06 fine against the chipmaker is wrong and that it ignores the reality of a highly competitive microprocessor marketplace.
I think the fine would probably need a "billion" or similar in there.
Can you provide some details? What audio are u using? when you reformatted did you use recovery disks you got with the computer? (whether drivers etc for specific components or those provided by an OEM)
Does it exist? I am looking to build a water cooled system in the future, partly to reduce the noise. I know modern hard disks need a fan blowing over them to last but they aren't at the point where they need major heatsinks etc. but i would still be interested in finding out. So are there any out there?
There are often spelling/grammatical/word errors in articles but they are usually amusing. The review though has something that wasn't translated. Just wondering what it says/language it is in. It is above the temp graph though so i am guessing it says that the card reaches 59 degrees under load.
I am not sure what the case is over there but a few countries have laws regarding warranties etc. stating that if you purchase a product it need to work for a reasonable amount of time and if it doesn't then the company either needs to either replace or repair the object. In these same countries you will get companies trying to get you to buy "extended warranties" which don't actually cover more than the company has to by law. So it might be worth checking that out. Aside from that note I don't really know anything that can help sorry.
With the rather large looking cooler, specially around the fan intake on the non 295 GTX cards do they still get enough air when in SLI with two of the cards close together? Are there noticeable changes in the temps when in SLI or are the coverings small enough to let a sufficient volume of air through?
