Windows 7 and SSD Tweaks

I just finished my Windows 7 and SSD Tweaks page last week that I’ve been working on, I’ve been searching and collecting all the information how to optimize SSD performance on Windows 7. Give it a try… I’m sure it will boost up your system.

Dual Wallpapers

Just added over 70 images to my Dual Wallpapers page. This is for only 3840×1200 pixel resolution. It’s made for 16:10 dual monitors. I hope you would enjoy it as much as I do. Check it out…

BTW, I think on Windows, UltraMon is one of the best software out there for managing these wallpapers.

Adblock for Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9)

If Adblock+ is the only reason for you to use Firefox web browser, you can now switch back to Internet Explorer 9 with its new feature Tracking Protection. Here’s how to do it.

  2. Have IE9 open and click on Setting icon (on top right corner and next to Star icon or simply press Alt-X) and then select Safety –> Tracking Protection…
  3. A window will open, then select “Get a Traction Protection List online…”
  4. This Tracking Protection Lists page will open in IE9, simply click on “Add TPL” to block ad

Yahoo! Messenger Ads Remove (any version)

So, you just installed Yahoo Messenger 10.0.0.1270 (the newest version). You will probably see the big ads below your Yahoo Messenger window. Here is an easy way to remove those ads.

1. Open the following file with Notepad:
C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

2. Add the following line at the end of the text file:

My Water Cooling setup

Well, after two weeks running the Corsair H70 on my old system, I thought to myself what the heck. So, I’ve decided going for water cooling on my new system. With the new Corsair Obsidian 800D case and a 360 radiator top mounted. It took me about a day to setup, testing, bleeding, … to make it safe to power it on. Well, with all the parts I’ve collected and here it is:

As you may know by now with the front panel has the XSPC logo, that’s the XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 kit I’m running with. For now my loop is pretty simple a CPU water cooled. In near future, I may get my nVidia GTX 560Ti GPU water block and add to the loop.

So, what are the temperatures I’m currently running? CPU Idle is at 35ºC and 50ºC on load. I’m pretty happy with this temp. CPU is running at 4.4GHz and 1.334V. Here is my screeny:

iPad Connection Kit

iPad is one of greatest and fastest way to show your photos right on spot. You can do that with an iPad Connection Kit and just connect it right to your camera or memory card. In my photo above, that’s how I’m using a USB cable to connect my iPad to my Canon 5DII. Pretty neat huh?

  • A shorten version of Macally mGrip Suction Cup Mount I am using in my car. I had to cut the extra arm length to fit the spot.

There is a small pond at Niagara Falls with very beautiful white lotuses. I happened to take this shoot and I love it. Click on it to save as wallpaper. Enjoys.
