comment Automatically export office documents to PDF on save?
Ah yeah, this works well. In my case the alt+F1 function was unbindable (I used ctrl+1 instead), and I believe that this can be made extendable by generating the PDF name according to this file name (ThisDocument.name doesn't quite do what I want, but it's just a matter of tweaking). I'm going to play around with it and I'm sure I'll eventually end up with something that fits me perfectly. Thanks a lot for the base code!

comment Processor Speeds?
A GHz (gigahertz) refers to the clock speed of a processor. It used to be highly relevant in the era of one-core CPUs, but it's less significant now. Still, it's a (very rough) indicator of computing speed. However, it strikes me as weird that the same processor could be listed with such a wide difference in clock speed. Are you sure it's the same? Maybe it's a typo on the website.

comment IRC command-line client for Windows
Hm. It seems good, but I can only start it by executing the .bat, and then it opens in a new window. If I try to put it on the PATH and start it by typing "irssi", the terminal just close. Is it normal?

comment GPU testing tool?
I guess ATI Tray only works for ATI cards, and I have trouble finding GpuTool. The only one I find is the Community Technology Preview 1, and I can't find any mention of artifact testing on it. I'll try to underclock the card a bit later, it might do the trick.

Thanks. I've been running it for 300 hundred iterations now (at a 800 MB load), and things seems to be doing well. I guess I should try to let it work overnight to be sure.

comment GPU testing tool?
The GPU is a Nvidia Gefore GTX 285, manufactured by XFX, this one I think : newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150334 As for the games, it varies. This time it's Tribes : Ascend, but the last time I observed this (several months ago), it was Mount and Blade : Warband. Mass Effect I and Crysis are also a known offenders. Changing the level of details of the games, their resolution or antialiasing settings had no effect.

Also, I should have precised that the graphical driver glitches and crashes (pixels invading the screens, tear, and eventually crash of the whole system) happens while I'm playing, which seems logical since few other things sollicitate a graphic card. However it does not seems to happen in every game. Recently, it's "Tribes : Ascend" that made my game crash. But even then it's not consistent : sometimes it crashes right away, sometimes I'm able to play for hours without any problem.
