Upgrade GeforceFX 5900XT Cooling.....Ermm But....

I have been using my Chaintech GeforceFX 5900XT for nearly four years for gaming. Well, things get old easily and especially the graphic card fan are making a lot of annoying noise inside my case once power turn on. I decided to get the old and cheap Coolermaster Cool VIVA product from the store to get rid my noisy fan. My PC is 24 hours operations using torrent and I really need a proper sleep. Here's the picture cover of the plastic seal!


I got it for B$15.00 (US$9.00 +/-) in my country, which is totally consider cheaper than before. I didn't even know we can get that price if it wasn't my customer who first brought it from the store. He told me to help him to assemble the Coolviva for his Radeon 9800 Pro card and happy to say its very successful for a first time. Ok, not quite a very nice looking and proper installed which I think as long I don't destroy the whole card. ^^;;;; Anyway, picture below for my old card before I do something stupid!


Taaadaaa! Here's the final one!


HA!!! See! Really bad assemble after looking at this picture. You can clearly see the heatsink were totally upper and facing downward. Forget about that. Bad news was that, my card totally screw up after a few small metals fell off from the board. It still work, however, it can't display after it reaches higher resolution in the desktop and crush into blue screen. Arggg...can't believe it just died like that because of these few small metal stuff. I guess maybe its time to get a new AGP card for my PC until building a new one next year. I wonder which mid-range card I should get these days?

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
