comment Benefits of using a VPN for personal Internet browsing
Could you explain in detail your sentence if you trust your internet provider, please? Now my ISP can sniff my internet browing, but with a VPN, my VPS provider can do it, right? Why should I trust more a cheap hosting company than a big ISP? Thanks!

comment Benefits of using a VPN for personal Internet browsing
@techie007, in fact I need the VPN because I want to avoid geolocation to watch TV :) I ask this to know the benefits of keeping connected to the VPN when i'm not watching TV (Note that I have my own VPN server in a rented VPS)

comment Front fan controller power
@Sickest, I still don't know what I need from the controller (0.75A?, 36V?, both?)... And as for your side question, my new case allows that number of fans and I have to admit I've gone a bit crazy... (anyway it's true I've always had problems with high temperatures in my previous PC and I lose my graphics card)

comment Compatibility of RAM modules
I just asked because most of the modules I'm seeing online are 800Mhz, so I wanted to be sure a 1GB PC2-6400 800Mhz module will work on my system...

comment Compatibility of RAM modules
Thanks for the info. I just want to buy a cheap one to carry on before buying a new motherboard and processor, so I don't mind if the increasing of performace is not masive... So you mean ANY module 1GB and PC2-6400 will work? The 400Mhz is not important?
