Hey Everyone.

I recently (2 months ago) bought a pair of Kave's and a xonar dg.

Worked awesomely until yesterday, for some reason the "centre" is playing a lot to the right in the 5.1 configuration and when I use them in stereo, all of the sound plays through the right headphone in all programs other the xonar driver and windows sound panel.

Any ideas?

From personal experience, I'd say that Razer products are not that good. They are made to look good, and you can tell that they are nothing more than sub-par quality products with a flamboyant paint job applied to make it look like they are for gamers. Let's take a mouse for example. You can look for any moderate range mouse and paint it black with red or green lights emitting out and call it a Razer mouse. Razer mice even have the problem of mouse cursors skewing to one side of the screen depending on the surface it's on. That's a problem mostly with cheap mice.

To be honest, Microsoft and Logitec make better accessories than Razer. Their mice at least have weight and a tight feeling. Razer ones feel light, hollow and cheap.

Don't mean to be a fanboy but I've owned 3 razer mice, a RAT and a logitech. Razer is the best, I've never had the problems you've experienced... Have you ever held the mamba? It certainly doesn't feel cheap or rubbish. Logitech I find to "clunky". Take a look at the Roccat SAVU as well, looks quite decent.

Hey Everyone,

I'm upgrading my ,baby girl to a GTX560ti SLI (from one) and I'm going to chug my 2500k up to about 4.3GHZ.

Question is, how to cool?

Now I have a number of options from the guys I buy from.

Heres my options:

Thermaltake Frio Advanced: $80

Corsair H100: $100

Antec Kuhler H2O 920: $95

What say you? :)

I still have my trusty lachesis. Awesome mouse.

Go for the Taipan maybe? Or the DeathAdder?

If I wasnt such a fan boy I'd say try a RAT.....

[QUOTE="04dcarraher"][QUOTE="Gabez_R"]I was hoping to OC to about 4.2-4.5. How much will the coolermaster allow? My friend says H60 is fine until you hit 4.2 How about the GS800, it has 4 PCI-E connectors?

The Hyper 212+ EVO is nearly as good as the H80, and is a 3rd of the normal price. The GS 800 will do the job just fine.

Then its set, thanks everyone! :) (Its only because I can get the GS800 for about R900 ($100+-) and the TX750 is about R1350)

Jeez thanks for all the help guys! Definitely going to invest in a new PSU, since I buy all my components from the suppliers (ie: I buy them at suppliers cost, roughly half the retail price) but I can only get Gigabyte and very recently Corsair stuff from the stockists. I can get the Corsair GS-700 for roughly $100? Is that a good deal? Thats why I originally thought of the H60 since its the only real cooler (apart from H80 and H100) I can get from my guys.

Damn. Don't know what the hell I was thinking. Then what is enough?

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking of buying another GTX560ti in the next few months and SLIing, along with a Corsair H60 cooler. I checked my PSU and I've got the Gigabyte ODIN 550W. For some reason at the time I thought it had more than 550W (don't know what the f@ck I was thinking....)

So will this even run an SLI setup? Let alone an extra piece of hardware?
