The Hyper 212 EVO supports the 1150 socket since the 1155 and the 1150 share the same mounting bracket holes. That's also true for all "1155-compatible" heatsinks.

The build overall is good. No glaring issues I see, that GPU is powerful enough to do high settings on pretty much all games out right now. PSU is more than enough to handle the hardware.

Since you're interested in gaming, I would recommend ditching the stock heatsink that comes with the CPU and buying something a bit more beefy. Heatsinks aren't all that expensive and are worth the investment if you're planning on gaming and want to protect your CPU investment. I've had really good performance on my Hyper 212, and it's only +$33. Well worth it.

As far as wireless goes. If you have the option of running a hard wire, then I always suggest doing that route. A wired connection is ALWAYS more stable than a wireless. That being said, it's easy to buy a PCIe wireless NIC and have it in your PC just in-case your situation changes. I wouldn't recommend bridging via your laptop or other device as you will usually get worse performance than a good NIC, and it's nice not needing your laptop to connect to the internet.

The NIC you linked to is a good choice.

Definitely in the works for quite a bit. Glad to be apart of it.

In Topic: WARNING: SwiftKit Domain Stolen (Now Resolved)

31 May 2012 - 01:44 AM

Hey guys just thought I'd let you know we made a post explaining what happened and what's going on right now:


One down side to SwiftKit being as popular and successful as it is, means that it has a giant target on it's back. Today we unfortunately experienced the effect of that., which is a shame really as we only exist to offer a free helpful tool to players...It really is unfortunate. As always though, we aim to be as transparent about the situation as possible.

At around 3am this morning it came to my attention that someone had gained access to the domain register's account that hosts SwiftKit.net. This allowed them to transfer the SwiftKit.net domain off our account and onto their own. Once they did this they were then able to change the webserver the domain points at, to their own malicious site. The problem was that it took around 5 hours for the domain to be rightfully returned back to us. So during this time the SwiftKit.net domain was pointing to a malicious website. We'll definitely be moving to a different domain registrar in the near future.

How was the intruder able to gain access to our domain account? By using a fake ID, or identity document to convince the domain hosting company to reset the e-mail address to their own. Then all they had to do was perform a simple password reset. We're very concerned that this could even happen in the first place, and that it took so long to re-gain control. We'll be looking forward to getting as far away as possible from this domain host.

So what does this mean for you as a user? Not too much, SwiftKit itself wasn't affected at all, just the domain. However If you were unfortunate enough to click accept or yes on any JAVA popups that came up I suggest do you a virus scan straight away and once clean change your password. You should never accept any JAVA requests from sources you don't trust. (It states the source in the popup)

We have seen this specific malware can be detected and removed by Microsoft Security Essentials. If you believe you have loaded SwiftKit in this small window and accepted any rogue Java confirmations, then it would be a good idea to run a full system scan.

SwiftKit itself has several layers of protection built into the updater to prevent anyone from being able to push out bogus updates. The only way you could be harmed is if you download or accept something yourself.

As it stands we now have full control of our domains and have taken temporarily steps to prevent such a situation from occurring again. DNS changes have been successfully apllied to many users and they should now be directed to the right, normal site. If you still are redirected incorrectly, try clearing your browser's history and cache, and also by going to Start > search for "cmd", and type in "ipconfig /flushdns". This will ensure the right DNS address is obtained from the server. In the coming future we will be looking to implement some permanent changes to further prevent such an occurrence, abandoning our current and frustrating registrar is one of them.

We understand our well-earned reputation has been tarnished by this horrible incident, and we understand many are wary using our products in the future. That trust is going to have to be earned back, and I know for some it will be difficult. I want to personally let everyone know the safety and security of all of our users are our #1 priority. The entire SwiftKit staff, including support from our users and Jagex moderators have hopefully showed everyone that we are serious about security.

If you have any hesitations or questions please don't hesitate to ask.

We're also going to be posting some specific ways of checking if you are indeed infected, and removal steps if you are. Gimmie a sec.

Edit: Detection and removal instructions:

1. Open Start
2. In search, type "regedit" and hit Enter
3. Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows" using the folder dropdowns.
4. If there is a file or entry in the Windows folder called "Adobe Drivers", than you are infected and you require removal. If it doesn't exist, you are not infected.


1. Right-click the taskbar and select "Start task manager"
2. In the Processes tab, end any process named "winsyl[Caution: Executable File]"
3. In the Registry Editor window you still should have open, right-click the "Adobe Drivers" folder and select Delete
4. Open Windows Explorer, enter in the URL %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\
5. Delete the folder "Drivers"
6. As a safety measure, run a full system scan using a reputable anti-virus such as MSE.

In Topic: Here we go again. SwiftKit illegal to use

Taking screenshots better, easier access to calculators, etc, those are all advantages. If it's something that would drive you to choose SK over the normal rs client, it's an advantage.

I don't see how being able to take screenshots "better" or access to calculators gives you an advantage in-game, which is what is being argued here.

You must not use other software to gain an unfair advantage in our games.

In our games generally includes in playing the game too. Calculators or easier screenshot systems, while they don't directly give you an in-game advantage, make it easier to play runescape. Think of an autotalker. It doesn't provide you a direct in-game advantage, and it doesn't even really interact directly with the game, in most cases. Yet they're still banned, because ultimately, it's still an advantage over players who do not use the same software.

The point is moot, though, seeing as Jagex HAS specified guidelines, and SK follows those guidelines.

Autotalkers DIRECTLY interact with the applet, and enter in data to it.

Your argument is utterly stupid. Having better RAM or a graphic card gives an advantage too, so they better ban certain people who have better specs. Oh wait, they better get rid of the supported fansites program because the people who view thier calculators and guides have an advantage!

Don't forget those users who use Chrome instead of Internet Explorer, as we all know it's been proven that Chrome can tabulate and display elements faster.
