    Hu well there you go, it was only the other day I saw something spelt SyFy must have been on eztv.it and never though anything of it. I cant believe they would change the name, too that. I officially dont like it. Not that I can real care as I dont have Cable TV. My Inlaws do they:-)

    Yeah the only thing that sucks about box hoarding is I have a big cupboard full of well nothing but empy boxes. lol

    I download any show I want from all the double u's dot eztv.it
    That warehouse 13 show is on there up to season 1 episode 9. I havent seen any as I read the discription and though it would be a little corny. But if you think its good then I guess I could give it a go. Im really trying to like the new Defying Gravity. Its ok but nothing outstanding yet. knowing my luck they will just get me hooked then it will be canned. eg: that show with that hot chick that was really storng, oh yeah BIONIC Women. lol oh and sniff sniff Battlestar Galactica. Im still devistated that it has ended. Im still devistated that Star Trek Deep space Nine is over lol. They could have kept DS9 going for like ever. Oh lets not mention Jericho. What potential it had,but was not ment to be, and Terminator The Sahar Conner Cronicle. Weres that at? IDK Im nearly too sensatised to watch tv shows anymore cause they all end. Friends is another one. I have all 10 box set DVD's (well my wife does) but I got hooked. At one stage I though I was actually in love with Ratchell. lol. I need to get a life. Thinking about getting a Motorbike. Like Dirt Bike style. to go riding with friends. But To be honest Id rather spend the $5000 bucks on a sick ass I7 system with all the bells. But dont tell anyone.

    I REALLY like the Stargate series, hated that they canceled Atlantis but I am looking forward to Stargate Universe though

    Warehouse13 is pretty good, I thought it might not be either but after the first episode I was hooked.

    I share your love of science fiction. I enjoy everything from Star Trek to Stargate, Fire Fly, comedly sic fi too like Red Dwarf.

    I'm also (as you may see from some screen-shots I posted in the past) a fan of American TV series such as Terminator SSC, Chuck, Supernatural, Heroes, House, Family Guy and ofc the Simpsons and Futurama (loved the recent-ish film). Oh how I wish I owned a Chevy Impala. Maybe an SS Sport Coupe, in black with an engine like thunder. It'd cost a lot to run here in the UK though as petrol (gas) is expensive. Maybe about 5/$8.13 per US gallon. I assume it'd have to be run on leaded petrol too, maybe a Super such as 97 RON BP Ultimate which means around $9.50 a US gallon.

    The only thing I don't like about US telly is the amount of adverts. It can be silly at times. It once took me 45 minutes to watch a 22 minute episode of The Simpsons. There were 5 ad breaks! Luckily EZTV and co edit out the breaks. However this is possibly the reason the TV industry hates torrents. They need viewers watching the actual broadcast and seeing the ads to make their money.

    They need to go the way music has a bit and have a download chart/streaming viewing figures. A lot of UK telly channels have a web based player that has ad breaks of 1 minute every 15-20 min and a larger ad at the beginning, all un-skipable. I like this format much better than to air broadcasting.

    Hopefully they'll make another (third) series of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but I'm not hopeful. I bet ~30% of viewers used downloads to watch it, meaning the station responsible for making it believed it wasn't being watched by enough people. The more Sci Fi the program, it seems that the more it's downloaded. Possibly Sci Fi fans are more tech savvy.

    I managed to get a few photos today while cleaning the PC.

    The Scythe Musashi is an exceptional cooler. As you can see there's zero force placed on the card because of the back plate. the only pressure is in the GPU core and the rear of the PCB, which is covered in a real soft piece of rubber. The cooler kind of rotates ~5 degrees but is tightened down as much as possible. It's similar to the TRUE in this respect. Contact pressurre is optimal as temps are good.

    The cooler is doing an even better than the Thermalright T-Rad2. Idle temp is 30-33c depending on time of day. Load temps in Furmark never get over 50c. Compare this with the stock cooler. I've seen temps of 70c idle and 95c full load for the reference single slot HSF. Noise is good. Both fans are controllable via two nice looking retro style silver dials. I have the fan over the GPU on minimum and the one over the VRM's on max.

    A good range of chip sinks is included. There are 16 RAM sinks, 3 longer, thinner sinks, one very thin sink and a special sink with push pins for certain Nvidia cards. Great value and performance at 34. I can see me using these coolers on my next set of cards, as long as they'll fit. The Musashi has mounting configs for every known mounting hole dimension by the looks of it. Hopefully there'll be no problem carrying them over. The only issue would be tall components on any new card(s).

    As you can see, there's plenty of room for two cards cooled by these in Crosfire on the UD3P. However the cooler does block the second CF Bridge port. Only one bridge is needed for two card CF though, so it doesn't matter. The only real issue comes from difficulty using the lower row of three Intel SATA ports. Not an issue for me, but may be for others. I shifted my DVD drive to the JMicron in preparation for fitting the second card when I get it back.

    Nice Pics mate. Yeah All those shows mentioned I love. When I was younger (single) When I visited my Uncle, we used to have Star Trek Marrithons for like a week straight. I loved it.

    Nothing new here at this stage. I will be looking for a new large capacity HDD as a storage drive to offload some of my older tv shows and movies on to as I dont want to fill my raid with crap. Ill probably by another 1TB Seagate but if anyone has any suggestions please feel free.

    Sounds good to me, I'll take one as well if you are ordering tonight!

    Well I guess we left out Heroes and it deserves a great mention as well because this show rocks!!

    I really liked 4400 as well, but they canceled it right when things started to get super interesting
