Well not a big deal for the TIM if you're just loosening/re-tightening the heatsink. If you remove it entirely then you should probably clean it off and use new thermal paste, which probably isn't a...

Well if the screws aren't evenly tightened, why not just loosen them all slightly and tighten them evenly?

Nah Windows 8/8.1 should be less resource hungry and it does startup faster, if that's of any interest. However I don't really like using it TBH. I only use it in desktop mode (IMO Metro is only...

Never heard of that. AFAIK 8-->8.1 is like a service pack, shouldn't ever cost anything to "upgrade".

A Phenom II X4 like a 955 or 965 or something around there would be good. Phenoms benefit from more cache over the Athlon line (like 2MB vs 512KB). There's also the Phenom II X6 but those take even...

You can always use a BT keyboard as the range should be better provided you have a decent dongle and it's pointed towards you.

Windows itself can do this as well, no real need to get a soundcard with "special" processing if you're only looking for "pseudo" Audyssey.

Well funny part is I've only ever bought LG optical drives for the past decade+ (with the exception of one Panasonic slim drive) so maybe that's why I haven't noticed riplock and have had to...

Yeah was pretty lame, but as I said it was only like 1st gen HDMI AVRs and at that only lower-end ones. OP is just unfortunate enough to have one of those.

Um well that's not the best way for me. For me I just put the disc in, PDVD opens automatically, I hit play, refresh rate changes automatically, and off I go.


Same goes for software players,...

IIRC "riplock" is a name given by users not by hardware manufacturers. The manufacturers call it nothing at all, they don't even mention it.

That shouldn't happen. Sounds like a player/software issue in that case. Personally I've never seen a Cinavia message, ever, other than seeing screenshots I mean.

Nope. A lot of early and lower-end HDMI receivers were "switchers" only and could not handle audio at all. I'm pretty sure his DH500 falls in that category.

Most motherboards have a digital...

Riplock isn't a war against freedom it's a war against noise, lol. It's not there to prevent ripping at high speed per se, it's there to prevent the drive from sounding like a jet engine when you're...

Dunno why all this talk about Cinavia. If OP is trying to play an original disc, there should be no issues with Cinavia at all. Cinavia [blocking] is totally irrelevant in this instance.

Not bad, physical copy or dl? Guess it's only a 200MB dl anyway so not a big deal.


However I wonder if this isn't just a prelude to Cyberlink releasing "PDVD 15" like they tend to do (release...

Also TD rebates are notorious for being horrible. A bit of a risk with a rebate that big. Unless you were gonna buy Windows + similar bloatware in the first place, I wouldn't bother.

70mm is still a good bit--still more than enough to use the stock cooler, which for a 65nm/Conroe CPU is higher than the one shown (and has a copper core BTW).

But for even better cooling than...
