That's pretty amazing, and I can't even see it happen. Do you happen to have a link to or some information on your system build? I seem to recall you just built a new system, and did so at a reasonable price. I'm in the market, as it were.
Thanks, and enjoy all that real-timey goodness...

And of course :
Those are tall RAM.
What cooler did you go with ?
I was thinking about the Nactua D-14 but its large
No additional cooling in the system. Heaps of space in the case and one of the fans is top of the case mounted
Temps are monitored but yet to see any reason for more cooling.
I am carefully watching the PSU though. Advice from this forum is it could be a little under rated. As soon as I add extra drives I will whack in a bigger one methinks (850watt)
Those are tall RAM.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Looks reasonably attainable for someone with meager means like me, though maybe minus the FX3800. Do you think that perhaps that's the key, though?
I have no way of knowing what the difference would be with another card or a hacked card.
Can only say that at this point in time. I am insanely pleased with what I have and how it works. The expense of the FX3800 is irrelevant to me because its doing the business... although I do suspect that it will prove to have been achievable with a lesser (priced) card if I had of waited a bit.
Penalty of being an early adopter and impetuous.
are you using the stock CPU cooler from intel ?
I only said those RAM sticks were tall because some have had problems with very large coolers like the Noctua D-14
tall RAM doesnt fit under it.
Stock CPU cooler.
Have you played with the "Source Settings" on red clips yet? Quite useful. Allows you to adjust red decoding parms directly, save as presets; apply to different clips etc...
Will take a look at that. Sounds interesting.
Reading posts like this makes me very happy. Great to hear!
