Got the HAF 932! SO worth it.
Pics up soon.
Still playing with the idea of getting the HAF 932. I went into a computer shop today to actually look at one to see if I like it when I see it. Well, holy fuck the bastard is fucking huge. Like it’s massive. It’s a good 3 inches taller than all the other cases they had on sale…. I want it even more now xD
Update on my new Thermal Compound
So I got this new thermal paste from Cooler Master. My stock paste (with stock heatsink) showed a min of 38*C and a max of 46*C on CoreTemp while only running CoreTemp, on average, per core (My CPU is an Intel i7 2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz).

Update on my new PSU
My computer has been on for nearly 3 hours now. Normally the CPU runs on 36-38*C when I’m only browsing the Internet. My GPU would hit 40-41*C as well. Now, while running my new PSU with the much larger 135mm exhaust fan (my old one was 90mm), my CPU is running on 32-33*C and my GPU on 33-35*C.

Just because you paid money does not make it better than the free ones. >Never click on ads on websites no matter what the...
Quick Tip #2
If you have an older model Dell (at least a few years old) and want to reinstall Windows; press and hold CTRL+F11 when it boots up and just click ‘Restore’. This will format your HDD and restore your computer to factory settings. Really helpful if you lost your Reinstall CD, also you DON’T need a Product Key to activate it as it’s done for you! Happy days. Just make sure...
Quick Tip #1
Manually update your antivirus daily. It only takes a minute.

Basic Computer Knowledge
(Excuse the length but this will most likely be my longest computer rant. There is just too much to talk about here.) The best place to start with knowing computers is terminology. You don’t need to know this but it’s damn fucking handy to know when you see it written or hear it mentioned somewhere. These are only basics and are not fully explained as they get too complex for most...
ATTENTION PEOPLE WITH COMPUTERS/LAPTOPS!
OK, some of you (Facebook friends) might remember I posted this the other day. Well I’m doing it again because I made a NEW blog just for this.
