Will this be your main shooping unit, and not a desktop pc?

 Penguin!ChloeG2xkw 253

Your experience with running photoshop on it would probably be "ok". Like GG mentioned, that processor will hold you back. The low amount of ram won't help either. For doing basic stuff it should be fine but I wouldn't recommend this as your main device for shooping.

Another thing to consider is you'll probably only have 40-50 GB of usable storage once you account for the windows installation. Then add photoshop, office, and all of your other programs and files and things could get tight. An sd card would help.

If I'm not mistaken, the Z3740 supports hyper-threading. It has 4 cores and 4 threads. So, at least it's better off than other Atoms, I guess. Don't worry. My main is my desktop and laptop.

I really love MacBooks but when it came to gaming, it really couldn't keep up anymore. I think Apple's prices would be justified if they at least put high-end graphics cards. Otherwise, I really like Mac but had to retire my MacBook Pro cause the MSi GE60 really suited more of my needs better.

Well, I'll be bringing this to the office everyday cause it's way less of a hassle to carry than my lappy and way less expensive to lose to muggers. I'll still use my desktop and laptop for Photoshop at home though.

And, yes. I did get a 64gb microSD. Thanks for suggesting! I was thinking at first of getting the 32gb version cause it's only $309. But, I'd end up with 12gb after Windows!

My tablet arrived at my grandpa's house already in LA today. An hour ago, Lenovo released this: http://blog.gsmarena.com/lenovo-launches-new-thinkpad-8-windows-8-1-tablet/

It's got a 2.4GHz Atom processor instead of just 1.8GHz, 1920x1200 resolution instead of 1280x800, USB 3.0, a thinner 8.3mm profile, optional 3G/LTE capability, and an a 128gb variant. My 64gb tablet was $379 while the 32gb WiFi-only version of this is $399. Was my purchase was still more worth the money or am I just telling myself that?

 GG!Mu5DJ1d1S. 257

Acer is going to announce it on CES even thought it's released already. Anyways, to get the 64gb one (without 3G) is about $500 already. Also, Asus announced something worse than it but for the same price in CES. I guess that's good enough for me.

About the returning part, I don't think I can return Amazon stuff just cause I don't like it after all, right…?

File: 1389167283650_Thumbs_Up.jpg (67.99 KB, 549x513)

I would've thought so but I read some disclaimer saying that if the product does not work, you may return it. But if Amazon tests it and finds that it works, they'll send it back to you and you'll have to pay a fee amounting to 15% of the product's price or something.

I was just dismayed at first that they launched that Lenovo thing on the day mine arrived at my grandparents' place. But, I figured $399 was the base model. I payed $379 for the 64gb version of mine. That might've been $459 for the Lenovo without LTE. But then, Acer said that that's the product they're announcing at CES and Asus announced at CES a similar tablet with the same price but lesser features… except for a stylus that I don't really need.

Also, it's now been passed to my uncle and will make it to the Philippines when he leaves on the 20th.

So, I guess you're right. I'm super excited. I'll probably just get a newer one within 2 years when storage reaches hundreds of gigs already and it can completely replace my lappy.

Does anyone know where I can buy a small-ish Bluetooth keyboard with touchpad? I kinda like something like this one. My only problem with it is that it has a receiver so it'll take up the only USB port I have on my tablet. That's why I want a Bluetooth one. Also, I've seen some similar Bluetooth ones but they're "mobile sized", too small.

Yeah. It'll be useful in the Philippines too. You leave a car parked out here, you'll be coming back to an over toaster.

There doesn't seem to be a huge selection based on what I saw when I checked.

This Asus one is the best I found. It's meant for another tablet but it should work fine with yours. It's not cheap though.

This Samsung keyboard is meant for tv's but again it should work. I saw a review complaining about the track pad though so maybe stay away from this one.

This one is the cheapest and looks most like the one you posted but I've never heard of Seenda before so I don't know if it's any good.

You can probably find some others if you look harder but the pickings seem slim.

File: 1389778076012_asus_me400_keyboard.jpg (21.57 KB, 500x500)

Yeah. I guess I should stay away from the Samsung one. It looks a bit too big too. The Seenda one is like the Aerb I saw. The Aerb one is the only one that comes out that's small to normal-ish size when I search "Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad" on Amazon. The rest are the mini ones intended primarily for phones. If I search "wireless" instead of "Bluetooth", it gives me the ones with receivers.

The Asus is the most interesting and best-looking one. You're right that it's pricy but it's branded. So, maybe that means I'll most likely find it here and if it's in an official Asus dealer, it might be financially flexible to get in exchange for the hefty price tag. Of course, hopefully, there's a keyboard and touchpad-only version that's hopefully cheaper as well.

Thanks again, Penguin!

Thanks! Battery University is actually my bible for my phones. But, my tablet runs on Windows 8 and has somewhat laptop hardware. I was wondering if it probably had some power cut off that allows me to use it for even just 2 hours after full charge. that's why I went to the manual which showed me that contradiction.

 Penguin!ChloeG2xkw 341

The more you use the battery, the faster it will wear out.
Leaving it plugged in 24/7 isn't good for the battery either though.

I know that they all use Lithium-Ion nowadays. I was just wondering if laptops, and therefore tablets similar to laptops, have some sort of auto-switching thing that allows you to use AC power when the batt's fully charged, without the hardware necessarily charging the battery anymore. I thought my answer would come from the manual but those 2 that had something to do with it were contradictory. So, I asked for you guys' help to sort of "translate" to me what they were really talking about.

Thanks though!

 !No.7//JDvE 348

>some sort of auto-switching thing that allows you to use AC power when the batt's fully charged, without the hardware necessarily charging the battery anymore.

Well yeah, hardware has had that for ages! If it didn't then batteries would blow up! Once the battery is full on any device the hardware switches over to a trickle charge mode to prevent overheating. Apple and other hardware manufactures are now using adaptive hardware charging technologies to further increase battery life as well. I've also seen a few software solutions that attempt to cycle the battery charge within an optimal range of 40-80% while plugged in, but that can be aggravating if you suddenly need to unplug and run for awhile on battery and are stuck with a half charged battery!

My recommendation is to simply use the device and don't worry too much about it except for a few things. First, don't leave it plugged in all the time obviously..let it run on battery regularly to get electrons flowing through the battery. Second, about once a month, do a full cycle charge. Meaning run the battery down until it sleeps, then let it charge to 100% without unplugging. About once a month is optimal, don't do it every other day! Third, as I've already mentioned, don't worry too much about it. Enjoy your new device and just be smart about a few things and the battery should give the manufactures intended performance.

Okay, here's what I do with it. I bring it instead of my laptop every day. I download torrents on it and some stuff. Whenever, I lock it in batt mode, it goes to sleep and stops all that. I set plugged-in to let it never sleep. Also, when I've my work done, I watch movies in it. I'm thinking is it alright if I keep it plugged in even for just a maximum of 2 hours after it's fully charged. I still and will still use the battery every day though.

Ever since the Note 3 came out with the cool back leather-like cover, I was hoping Samsung came out with one for my Galaxy S4. Now, they just announced a new edition of the latter phone with exactly the same specs as mine but with the awesome black case.

In other words, my wish came true. They released the back cover I wanted for my phone… but for the price of the entire phone… and the phone comes for free. Grrrr….

I hope it's not counterfeit but there's a huge market of counterfeit sandisk memory cards all over the internet and ebay to the point where it's almost a certainty. The counterfeits are so good that it's almost impossible to tell, until you benchmark them and find out they are slow as fuck compared to the real deal.

 Penguin!ChloeG2xkw 397

File: 1392562071208_CrystalDiskMark.png (29.34 KB, 503x389)

You can use one of these to benchmark your card.
http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskMark/index-e.html (I'd go with this one)

If you do go with the first one make sure to pay attention when you're installing it.

The Amazon listing for your card says up to 30MB/s for sequential read speed.
Also, it's a class 10 card which means it is supposed to get minimum 10MB/s sequential write speed.
So those are numbers to aim for when you benchmark it.

One thing.
The card is UHS-1 (Ultra High Speed) enabled. This is part of the SD 3.0 specification.
According to the Amazon listing for your tablet, it is only SD 2.0 compatible.
This could affect performance a little bit. The listing could also be wrong.

Good luck.

Hey, Penguin! Long time! You killed Batman?

I hate those installation tricks. Haha.

I got bored cause the process is long and these are the results so far. I'll post the final one later though. The write speed is a bit below 10MB/s. That's cause my tablet is SD 2.0, you said?

I want to know because the guys sold this to me for a really cheap price and is offering me another one. My mom might get it for her Samsung Galaxy Note II.

I have a Palit GeForce GT220 1gb DDR3 129-bit running along side an Athlon II X2 245 and 4gb of DDR3 1333MHz RAM.

I'm not sure if I've been using 332.21 or it was updated recently but around earlier this month, I've been getting "your nVidia driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered". It would keep crashing with that error until I get a BSoD saying VIDEO TDR FAILURE. I tried uninstalling it in safe mode, redownloading, and reinstalling it but the same thing happened. It kept happening until I got a BSoD that said INCOMPATIBLE BOOT DEVICE, and had to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit over it just to get my desktop stuff from the Windows old folder, delete tha partition, recreate the partition, and install the OS again.

I used just the 331.82 drivers to be safe. Nothing was happening but it could also be cause I was extra cautious, I only Photoshopped or watched movies, or browsed the web.

When 334.89 (the newest one came out), I downloaded it and installed it yesterday. It was okay the entire morning and afternoon. I converted a Hawaii Five-0 video and no complaints. I opened a music video then the errors started again until it reached BSoD with VIDEO TDR FAILURE again.

Now, I can't turn on the desktop. It won't show anything. I even removed na the GPU.

Before, this not turning on happened and I had to change the power supply and mother board cause the fan of the latter took a moment before starting. Apparently, it's supposed to spin right away as soon as the system was powered on. Afterwards, it only happened once.

I'm not sure now if all this is driver related or my GPU is busted. Also, I now don't know if all this affected any other part of my CPU.

334.89 isn't a beta driver and it's WHQL certified so I doubt it's a driver issue. I'm looking very cautiously at that video card as being toast. It would be helpful if you had another video card to put in it's place to see though. Is this the same desktop that you were having memory issues with?

If you're referring to the Chrome hanging on Chlomo, yeah. Though, it was solved after the reformat. I'm actually hoping it is the GPU cause I'm getting a GTX 580 soon anyway. But, someone said it could probably be Windows 8.1 being unstable and said I should downgrade to Windows 7. But, I got so used to 8.1 already and have been kinda using it since I first got the PC. I also have no problems with it in my laptop.

But as I said, it's not turning on so I can't do anything until the supplier gets here.

Well, I'm having it brought to someone with Windows 7 and Windows XP I seriously hope you're right! I don't wanna downgrade anymore… reformat or not.

Oops. I was thinking USD. Though, the Ti does go above the price range but just by a tad. I'm still better off getting an nVidia GTX 580 (Galaxy Edition) than a 750 Ti, right? I mean, I don't mind not having Shadow Play.

Also, I'm planning to upgrade my RAM but don't know when yet. At the mean time, I'll stick with 4gb even though 8gb is recommended for the 580. I'm assuming but wanna make sure that that would be alright for now.

A friend suggested the gtx 750 aswell so I think thats where I may lean. I can get it locally for 150/160$ so thats a major plus.

didn't want to post in the main thread. crome stopped working, then nothing would work. got a chk disk warning so i let it run and then ran a system scan. the antivirus system i've got called avg had stopped working for some reason about a month ago and upon scanning 502 minor and about 30 medium trojan's and malware's were detected. so that was probably the issue, but my brother's says the hard drive is probably buggered. thanks for the offers of help boys, that meant a lot.

Sounds like everything that's wrong is just with your hard disk. Back up your files and reformat it. If need be, buy a new one completely. 320gb or 500gb shouldn't be expensive.

Either option, partition it in disk management. For example, if your hard disk is 500gb, right click on it in disk management and choose to shrink it down to 200gb. Right click the now unallocated space and create a partition maxing out the possible space (around 300gb). Install Windows and your programs on the 200gb partition and keep all your files and media on the 300gb part. Should something go wrong in the future, you can reformat the 200gb part without even touching your files.

Also, download Malwarebytes:
No. 7 introduced it to me. Adware have been popping out considerably less. It also keeps notifying you that it's blocking a lot of stuff which may come off as annoying to others but comes off as assuring to me. I know it's performing its function well.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally here.

The screen increased by just 0.1” and is still 1080p. The camera went from 13 to 16 megapixels and from 1080p to 4K UHD video recording.

Though it’s now IP67 certified and waterproof, it’s obviously bigger than the S4 and the fatter bezels make it look like a 1st gen Galaxy Grand (no offense to the owners of those).

They also used the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor as the Note 3 and some current S4 editions. It also kept 2gb of RAM while the Note 3 already has 3.

Even though the USB 3.0 port and waterproofing are of great interest to me, I think I’m leaning towards sticking with my S4 for now cause it’s “prettier”, I don’t need a heart rate monitor (thank you very much), and the S6 might finally have the Snapdragon 610 64-bit processing chip with 4gb of RAM.

New DAW PC build:
*I'll be grabbing newer parts from my current PC which I haven't included here

HDD: Kingston 120G HyperX SSD SATA 3

>I'm a bit hesitant about these mobo options. From their reviews they seem to be riddled with problems. If anyone has any suggestions for Z87 chipset mobo's I'd love to hear it.

It sounds like you just want a rock solid PC and are not interested in overclocking or anything of the sort. If that's the case and you are having a hard time finding a 3rd party mobo in the chipset you want with solid reviews, you can never go wrong with picking up the Intel branded equivalent of that board. It may cost more, and not have all the extra features like OC options etc, but it will be guaranteed to be rock solid and reliable. If you ask me, when you are building a computer to get real work done, you never want to skimp on reliability as the first priority.

Also, I would like to recommend you check out the Samsung 840 Evo SSD's. They really can't be beat for the cost at the moment. For even more durability, the Samsung 840 Pro is another top choice.

 Apheta!!PggqiRpoXY 467

Fantastic! thank you. I didn't even see the 840 ssd's while I was browsing but I'll pick up an 840 pro instead of the Kingston HyperX.

The equivalent intel board are an extra 100$ and would have been perfect but the local suppliers don't have any in stock which is a bit frustrating. For now I guess it's more of a Gigabyte vs Asus showdown so I'll just have to keep researching which boards Pro tools seem to like more.

It was more-so for convenience sake. I was going to buy a FW pci-e card but I already had a fw pci card.

I put the PC together yesterday and typing off it now. Only problem I had was a constant red light on the VGA LED (which halted the system boot up). I assume its because my PSU can't power my GFX card. Running on the onboard graphics right now.

If the new PSU doesn't fix the problem then I guess I have to RMA the card :(

Good advice right there. and if you start seeing more of those errors or other errors with data on that drive start looking to get the remaining data off as soon as possible/ reformat/ run sectors scan etc or you might end up like this

Will a reformat and surface scan be able to fix it or is there some sort of permanent damage?

 !No.7//JDvE 511

Unlikely it will help, but it's something you can try after you get the data off just to rule out data or partition table corruption etc…just prioritize removing your most important data first and discontinue all use of the drive until you can begin that process.

I see you've a water-cooling system! That's awesome. I really want one but have no need for it right now. I've 2 upper fans in exhaust and 3 intake ones under.

Also, is that light part of the build or is that just a light? If it's part of it, that's way wicked! Haha.

What type of drives? 2.5" laptop drives?
Like penguin said, do backups! Striping drives in raid 0 doubles your chances of loosing data due to drive failure because if either drive fails you lose everything. I'm not trying to discourage you, just do backups, but seriously why on earth would you do a setup like that? I ran raid 0 on my boot drive for a couple years before SSD came along and prices came down and after moving to a SINGLE SSD I will never look back. I suggest for real speed you accept nothing less than SSD. A single SSD will stomp any dual drive raid 0 array of any mechanical disks hands down.

The only advantage of mechanical drives is the price per gigabyte so people like me that needs terabytes of storage must still rely on them. For someone like yourself who seems to be okay with 500GB, just pick up a 500GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD and call it a day!

The set-up I'm planning is a double 320gb in RAID 0 config. That'll be where I put just Windows and and my 500gb will be separate for all my media, docs, and files.

Especially in the Philippines, the price of 2 320gb HDDs are waaaaay lower than a single 256gb SSD. But when the time comes a 512gb SSD is out, I'll probably consider it.

Though now that I come to think of it, I might upgrade the 500gb HDD too cause I only have around 100gb left for files….

It's your money so it's up to you, but I think it makes more sense to go with an SSD. Like No. 7 said, the SSD will crush the RAID 0 config in performance and be more reliable.

A 250GB SSD for the OS and programs and then HDDs for everything else.
You could bump it down to a 120GB SSD if price is a big issue.
The 640GB that you would get with two 320's in RAID 0 would just go to waste.

I also recommend the Samsung 840 Evo.

You can get them in a lot of colors.

>RAID 0 will leave me with just 320gb
That would be true with RAID 1. With RAID 0 you don't lose any storage space because there's no redundancy. What I meant by it being a waste is that you don't need that much space for a your boot drive if it's just being used for the OS and programs.

A DMCA takedown request is the cause. This has been an unfortunate thing for a couple of years now. When it happens you can do one of a few things.
1. Find a different upload/nzb
2. Add backup block accounts. These are accounts you pay for say 100GB of downloads from for life and then sabnzbd uses them only when your main server (newsdemon) can't find the files. I have acquired block accounts with astraweb.com, blocknews.net, ssl-news.info, and tweaknews.eu over the years. Tweaknews is usually the best for me, but in this case ssl-news appears to still have the files..i guess that's why it's good to have more than one ha.

 !No.7//JDvE 586

It's not your phone, it's simple photographic principles. It could get complicated with me explaining in detail about how shutter speed, aperture, light, and exposure work in photography, but I'll make it super simple:
The flash on your phone increases the light and thus lets your camera take the photo with a faster shutter speed. Example: if the shutter speed is raised from 1/10 of a second (with no flash) to 1/250 of a second (with flash) it is able to capture the photo much faster before your hand is able to create blur in the photo. The blur you see when not using flash is from your hand not being able to hold the phone steady enough for long enough..the flash eliminates this issue in poor lighting conditions.

What I'm also talking about is even if I'm taking photos in places that have so much light that the presence or absence of flash would not make a difference. In those scenarios, I still notice that having the flash on makes the quality sharper. Is it cause the shutter speed is still faster?

I like taking pictures of lots of stuff that's sometimes embarrassing. So, I don't like people seeing my flash go on. Also, sometimes, the picture's lighting makes a non-flash photo appear better in terms of saturation (for example) but it's a bit blurry or not as detailed.

 !No.7//JDvE 589

Yes, cameras on phones have tiny sensors and need tons of light to take a steady photo. The flash acts as a bit of a freeze frame in these scenarios. The blur still comes from unsteady hands. If you can steady the phone on something you should improve the sharpness without using the flash. The technology continues to mature so you should see improvements as you upgrade to later phone models.

For just those things? integrated graphics will be all you need as long the video editing isn't too intense. I say run it on the integrated GPU and see what you think. You can always add a dedicated GPU later.

You should get a Palit GT220 1gb DDR3 128-bit then.
Though, you can take it up a notch and get the new GTX 750. It's actually not expensive, just about $150 or a bit more.

Yeah, well you are the best judge of what you need. Keep in mind the integrated graphics have jumped leaps and bounds in the last couple of years and are able to drive super hi quad-hd displays pretty decently on these modern laptops. Given that, if you are doing editing on a frequent basis then it's probably best to spring an extra ~$150-200 and get a solid mid-tier GPU. No need to go top end unless you plan to do some major after effects work and really want to get into some serious gaming.

>You should get a Palit GT220 1gb DDR3 128-bit then.
uhh, no.

>It's actually not expensive, just about $150 or a bit more.

I just wanted to point out this coming from the guy who was complaining about not wanting to spend $150 on a decent SSD and instead wanted to save a few $$ and raid-0 some slow ass 2.5" 5400rpm laptop drives together into something that probably wouldn't even perform as good as the fastest single 7200rpm desktop drive, or that link to the $250 orange external 2tb drive that you could get for about $100 if you don't require it to be safe from being ran over by a car..I never leave my external drives in parking lots so I don't find the feature useful anyway.

I'm assuming the prices are more or less the same? The Gigabyte does look better cause it's clocks are slightly higher but even though you wouldn't really feel that small a discrepancy, the 2 fans are definitely a plus.

I was choosing between 2 GPUs my dad's friend was offering me: a Galaxy GeForce GTX 660 Ti and a Galaxy GeForce GTX 580. The way I saw it, the 660 had more features since it's newer but the 580 had more power. I also double checked that with benchmarks online. Plus, it had 3 fans. So, coming down to features vs processing prowess, I just picked the latter. Maybe you wanna get one. Though, I'm not sure if they're more or less the same price where you'll look for them.

Is it the same like the AMD processors? I dunno if it's just me but I kinda find that in the same price point, AMD has better performing processors… but over all, Intel's best ones outperform the best ones of AMD.

I got my AMD FX-4100 brand new for less than $100.

 !No.7//JDvE 621

>is there much of a difference between brands?
Not much for most people honestly. ATI and Nvidia have been back and forth for the performance crown for years now. The biggest differences off the top of my head is with some applications that have CUDA support so since that's an Nvidia thing it's a plus for them if you need it. Then of course drivers. For a time there ATI and Nvidia have had driver problems (stability) and most recently ATI had them i guess, but on windows I don't think you will have issues with either. If you are on linux nvidia's driver support is hands above ATI, but you're gonna use Win 8 I assume.

I said AMD out of habit cuz AMD bought ATI several years back. Their GPU (ATI) and Processors divisions are separate entities so don't try to compare them. Yes, Intel in the last several years is pretty much superior to AMD in every way. Way back before the intel core processors it wasn't always that way, but once Intel took the lead they really never looked back.

Also I read somewhere that you are going to stop using XP VM's. Why is that? I thought security updates wouldn't be a problem as long as your main OS is still getting them.

Yeah kinda so and kinda not, but give 8.1 a try it's a pretty nice release and they have made some changes to make it easier for desktop users…later they will be bringing back a real start menu too but there's several good addons to bring the start menu back until then. I just feel 8.1 runs better on the same hardware as 7. Both are good releases though.

>you are going to stop using XP VM's
>I thought security updates wouldn't be a problem as long as your main OS is still getting them.
It's not as big of an issue but it's an issue still the same. I don't want to run VM's that could become compromised just the same as a normal internet connected computer would. It wouldn't be my main OS compromised, but the VM could become a bot or get malware and fuck up and it's not worth the risk and the time to fix these issues/restore from snapshots etc especially when simply moving to a supported OS version will eliminate most of these issues anyway.

>The official Bluetooth specifications state seven is the maximum number of Bluetooth devices that can be connected at once. However, three to four devices is a practical limit, depending on the types of devices and profiles are used. Some devices require more Bluetooth data, so they are more demanding than other devices.

Keyboards and Mice are very low data demand devices so they should not stand in the way of you even hooking up another 1 or 2 devices (like a bluetooth headset as a 3rd device for example)

The only gotcha is making sure your tablet supports those devices. Just try to verify that first and you shouldn't have issues.

wow wtf ..fucking windows update has went haywire or something because you've got about 14 tmp folders in there of the exact same size like it has failed and remade the folder over and over again or some stupid shit

(toward the bottom of that page)

The %windir%\softwaredistribution\downloads folder is used by Windows Update to store downloaded updates. Typically, you do not have to manage this folder because it is managed by Windows. The typical size of this folder is determined by several factors such as the operating system version, what updates are available at the time, and so on. Therefore, it is difficult to provide a typical size expectation. If this folder uses lots of disk space, first install all available updates for the system, and then restart the computer. To troubleshoot this issue if the size still remains large, follow these steps:
At an elevated command prompt, run the following command:
Delete the contents of the %windir%\softwaredistribution\downloads folder.

I guess that's cause it runs as autoupdates on the background. Whenever I lock the tablet, it doesn't just shut the display like any other tablet running on Android or iOS. It goes to sleep. So, I think that may be aggravating or creating the problem too.

I'm assuming you can't without stopping the windows update service first, but you can try to anyway! If it fails then you know why. It's safe to delete anything in that downloads folder.

When I sleep at night, I leave Chlomo and Twitter open on my tablet. The next day, I'd have around 5% off my battery eaten off.

For the last few days (same time I noticed the memory thing), I noticed that my battery would be at around 65-70% after charging it full then going to sleep. that's for about 7 or less hours.

Well, I shut it down then turned it on later on instead of just performing a restart. I hope to God that this works.

NUMBER SEVEN, I did and noticed the following:
1. I ran the Windows battery report which showed me capacity instead of percentage. I always charged at full capacity (as the original state of the battery) and it really drains down that much.
2. The draining time is the same, whether I use it or not. Well, it's probably just a tiny bit less when I'm not. It's kinda like it drains in 5 hours when I'm not using it the same amount it would drain if I was using it for 3 hours.
3. I've already reformatted it.

I think I'll try manually putting it to sleep at night or hibernate it, and see if that works.

Anyone know what this is?
I mean, I know it's a cooling system but KitGuru never mentioned the brand or model.

I was right in choosing 1600 CL7 over 1866 CL8, right?
I also assumed so cause it was more expensive.
