    What's up with this?

    Just my 2 cents worth As I have also received the same before. If you look at the original email from Sony. It is up to TPG to respond back, not you.

    The great Aussie heat..

    Hi, With my property basically being a glass house, I am having the greenhouse effect inside. Im sure if I plant some seeds in my ears, I could grow a forest.. Now, Pending approval, I am not sure if I am able to get a split system installed as our body corporate are stuck up little pansies. Question? How effecient are these portable air-con units? Yes they are bulky, but it looks like my last resort if I cant get approval for a split system. so for those who have them, let me know on your feedback Cheers Rob

    Motorbike Trips

    One of my fave roads would be the 'Bells line of roads' to Lithgow. Starting from richmond. National park is ok if you start from the Waterfall Ramp (or emu plains, Cant remember) - But This is too common and gets done alot. If you are keen, Make your way to Kangaroo valley if your up for a 1-2 day trip. Bring your camping gear as well... I'll try remember the roads and let you know.

    Buying a new car

    Currently doing the above for the past couple of weeks. Currently it is working like a charm. But one thing I have to include into this, which I find has dropped dealers price on 08 cars, is Finance. My benchmark is Suttons Holden in Homebush which current have finance @ 4.99%. You would be suprised at what dealers would try to do so they wont lose a sale after I tell them, "Why would I get a car from you when I can pick up an "Astra" with 4.99% finance??" This has helped to knock off a substantial price for the Corolla I want. And I agree, Dont be a dick, be professional and put them in a corner and stand your ground. Your the one who is handing over your cash afterall.

    Petrol versus Diesel vehicles

    I am also currently in the situation of what I should buy. Here are a few figures I ran today based on the Hyundai i30 Petrol/diesel Petrol Fuel Economy: 7.2l / 100km Tank size: 53 Litres Todays 91RON (not E10) price: 95.9c (sydney) Cost to fill tank: ~$50.82c Cost of Fuel per 100km: ~$6.90c Diesel Fuel Economy: 4.7l / 100km Tank size: 53 Litres Todays Diesel price: 124.9c (sydney) Cost to fill tank: ~$66.19c Cost of Fuel per 100km: ~$5.87c As you can see, there is not too much of a difference, but a mere $1.03c extra to run a petrol engine car vs the diesel. Sure you will be at the bowser more often, but who cares. I say test drive both, and see which one you would like and feels better. I would probably go the diesel route as the torque levels are much higher and would help moving the car around. Take note, that with the major fluctuation on fuel prices and so many factors involved that affect fuel economy, these wont be static figures. And just for fun, I'll throw in the E10 Calculation Todays E10 price: 92.5c Cost to fill tank: ~$49.02c E10 cost of fuel per 100km: ~$6.66 (hrmm, quite an interesting figure aye) Edit: I should also add that figures normally quoted by manufacturers are either Highway driving or a combination of highway/urban with the AC/Electronics off. This is just a part of their sales tactics. If you mainly do urban driving, Add atleast an extra 1-2l+ / 100km

    Overclocking a E4300

    263x9 = 2367MHz. Decent stock voltage OC. You should be able to get a fair bit more than that, though. Mine's running at 340. I've given it a little extra voltage, but I'm sure I got it way over 263 on stock voltage. Maybe you've hit an FSB wall of your motherboard, or have your ram running too quick. Or, maybe the temps are an issue - what cooler are you using? Quite interesting... I have an EP35 - DS3, Although I find I can O/C other CPU's alot better reaching higher FSB levels on the Mobo. Was there any other builds of the E4300 because I purchased 4 at once for multiple PC's and all were the same..

    9800 GTX question

    Be wary of Plasma screen burn. PC's have a tendancy to be big culprits for this. What I did was change my desktop to a boring black colour. Anywho, What I did was purchase a DVI-HDMI cable rather than go the adapter route. Just make sure that the cable/adapter you pick up supports Audio as I now have a redundant cable doing nothing.

    Damn RROD!

    Good one MS. So I support you guys. and guess what happens. 7 days into owning the console. I get a RROD already.. WTH!! anyone else have this happen?

    Damn RROD!

    Hey in relation to wanting a HDMI 360 console have you seen the HIVE Console Cooler attachment for the 360? http://www.jbhifi.com.au/games/microsoft/x-box/360/ Check the bottom left. Apparantley it plugs into the back of the 360 and lets you use any standard AV connectors HDMI, VGA, Component, S-Video etc. It also has some fans a bunch of USB connections to make up for the one it covers. I haven't got one myself but have been thinking about it becuase my pre-HDMI 360 is still ticking along quite nicely and I can't justify getting another one just for the sake of HDMI. Just because you're using a HDMI cable doesn't mean you'll be outputting at 1080p though... To add as well, It would not be wise using one of the items unless its powered seperately. There have been known cases for these intercoolers to cause a 3RROD in the Power side of things.

    Damn RROD!

    It would be 3 years from the date of purchase for the extention on RROD. It's kind of unfair for the owners of the original Xenon Xbox's. E.G - Purchased in dec 06, Warranty on RROD till Dec 09. IMOH, They should extend by an extra 3 years from the date of announcement. At least that would give them a little bit more peace of mind. Anywho, Im pretty happy they EB exchanged without any fuss. Its just a matter of time. Oh, and just to add, I called MS this morning and this is part of the conversation that was quite interesting Me: I got a RROD after 4 days, Can I exchange with no fuss. MS: Sure, All you need to do is bring your console (minus HD) and Powerbrick to the place of purchase within 30 days Me: Why do I need to bring my Powerbrick if it is just the console problem MS: Because we need to test all parts out Me: Well, what about my HDMI cable?, my Composite cable ETC.. MS: No, we just need the powerbrick Me: But you just said you need to test ALL parts out And what I got told today by EB, where information from them is like reading the inquirer.net. There was an announcement that the new batches had problems with the powersupply connections within the Xbox. - Funny that. 2 pieces of information from different sources relating to each other.

    Overclocking a E4300

    I find that this cpu has a FSB wall of 263mhz (and I have tested 4 of them, all the same) Voltage increase can do a little bit more but I find it becomes very unstable.
  24. Just to add. MS have a 3 year warranty for RROD errors

    Damn RROD!

    Thats pretty crazy. Was just reading an interview with an ex MS employee about the failure rate. Previous consoles state 30-50% Worldwide failure within 12 months. Apparently the new batchs are to decrease that to 10% worldwide. Guess im just on of the unlucky ones.
