comment `ls /users/applications` is not listing my applications on OS X
This is correct. By default applications in OSX are stored in /Applications. Also, "ls /Applications" will provide you with the same results.

comment Desktop freezing under heavy graphics load
I don't have an extra PSU, although I'm building a second desktop soon, so I could pick one up now I suppose. (The fan does work though.) While it's probably a good idea to test it anyway, I had kind of ruled out a faulty power supply, because I would assume it would have the same issue with or without the side of the case removed. Does that make sense?

If the issue is related to the thermal paste on the stock heat sinks, is there something that would indicate that as the problem? Is there a nearby sensor that monitors anything relevant?

comment Desktop freezing under heavy graphics load
The case actually came with two 120mm fans, both of them pointing inward (intake). I replaced those fans with better ones. I also switched the rear fan to point out as an exhaust. Neither seemed to help. I'm a little confused what you mean by "make sure your north bridge and south bridge coolers are attached correctly." The CPU and it's cooler sit on the north bridge right? Does the south bridge typically use separate cooling? It's certainly possible that I incorrectly applied the thermal paste when I upgraded the CPU cooler, but I was also having the issue prior to that upgrade.

comment How to make the HDTV HDMI output audio to external speaker?
To clarify, since a lot of receivers tend to have an amplifier as well, the terms get misused (by myself included), but they serve two different functions. However, what we're talking about here, you will not need either of these to use powered speakers with your TV.

Correct... Well technically you won't need an amplifier. You're TV will be functioning as a receiver.

Depending on the speakers. They absolutely need power of some kind, which the Audio OUT connection does not provide. It really depends what kind of sounds quality you're looking for. If you're not looking for amazing home theater quality sound, there are some sets of computer speakers that will work decently with a TV, a little higher end is something like the Audioengine 5 audioengineusa.com/Store/Audioengine-5. Either option will not require a receiver.
