I have a four year old grand-daughter who took a shine to computers three years ago and some. She used to watch me fix them, and when she was old enough that she could walk, she would hold a flashlight for me such that I could see what I was doing inside a desktop case. […]

When it has been Metroed. I was walking through the Nuclear Medicine department in one of our local hospitals recently. There was a technician sitting in a large cubicle.

This is a Silenx EFZ-120HA4.. supplied with one 120mm fan This is what I have in my main system. It works well and I can’t hear it. I like that.. The ends of the heatsink, the sides that you can’t see, are shrouded. This prevents heat falling out over the video card and chipset heatsinks […]
