Re: Importance of clean fans

Know these problems only too well. There are magnetic dust filters, that you can attach to the cases air intake, to help with that. Provided, the case is made of metal of course ;) I posted some updates to this in the wrong place lol https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1668#p24345

Re: Credit card vs Debit cards on new webstore poll

EU complaining they don't have credit cards because they cost to much. So I lost a lot of custom that way anyway. Most just want to use iban which I can't take anyway.

Re: Adventures in video card cooling

El Cheapo Chinese fan controller turned up, shockingly fast 4 days :o I think it was £2.x something.

I mean it's quite a big picture, i'm assuming they used frames and not doing some zoom trickery on 1 picture since it's all a...
