I've actually already put in an order for the OEM Intel cooler but I think it's the dual-core model, which appears to be aluminum. How much of a difference is it likely to make? I am using a dual-core processor (Core 2 Duo E7600 3.06GHz) and the computer case is pretty well ventilated. I also haven't returned that Cooler Master yet. Would it be worth the time and trouble to try and get the adapter? Or sending these both back and getting the quad-core cooler?
As far as the hard drives, are there any particular specs I need to look for in order to avoid the compatibility issues I've heard about? I think this board only does SATA 1.
I think I might know a way to convert HUFFYUV
to a Mac-usable format, but if it doesn't work, I can make converted copies on the capture PC and send them to the Mac, or send the HUFFYUV
files to my Lenovo i5 laptop with Windows 10 instead, right?
