  1. Got me some materials yesterday...need to get some glass bit yet for a work surface.


    Anywho got me a multi pack with 400,600,800, and a 1000, then a pack of 2000... as well as some Eagle 1 metal polish. As that was all they had that didnt have a Polish AND XXXX I just wanted some polish!

  2. Since I got some new and much better bits for my computer...and knowing that the 3ghz wolfdale's are beastly.. I want to keep it cool and perform at its highest potential.


    So... why not lap right? Definitely not touching the chip....but I can afford to screw up on a heatsink.


    I have read that a few people have lapped their heatsinks and chips, I was just wondering it you had any tips....other than what I can dig up from search engines and the site.



  3. The fun really begins once I get my second drive this weekend... lil raid0 action for the laptop.


    I love the blue lights on the lid... i could do without the one around the touch pad though.


    My old laptop was well used...so I had that layout memorized... being a completely different keyboard(full size with 10key) typing is a pain!


    I might put up windows 7 on it... but not too sure yet... maybe in a VM box. It's got the power to do it.

  4. Hmm... no dice.... My link says operating system not supported... Bruce your link said my computer doesn't meet the specifications of the driver.... yeah never seen that one either.


    Ha... i was wrong on the chipset. It's not supported by vista... sooo its no dice on windows 7 for gaming here.

  5. I couldn't get WoW to start up. I get an error saying that 3D Acceleration would not start up, please make sure you have DirectX Installed and that Video Drivers are up to date.


    Didn't have DirectX installed did that... no dice..

    Tried Video drivers - XP drivers though... no dice. Think its just that my laptop is too old. I'll check out intel for possible newer drivers.

  6. :wub: Windows 7 :wub:


    I tell you guys... this really is awesome for a beta. Not a single critical driver needed- I need to get a driver for my touchpad so I have have the scrolling on it....thats all.


    And man this thing is blazing fast!!!!! :sparkle:


    Im hooked...


    BTW Laptop specs are:

    Pent M first gen Centrino 1.6GHz

    2GB Ram

    80GB 5400rpm HDD

    Integrated Video


    It looks beautiful as well as is pretty peppy.


    On to the software testing!
