Looks like the old my630i forum is on its last leg.Even the mod's are no longer removing the spam from it.Probably about all that remains of the 630i is the case. although I still am running my original Q6600 with only a GPU and win7 up grade ( plus added ram). I was one of the lucky ones that got one that worked from the get go and is still running as if new
What do you think?

Still plenty of old XPS 630s out there in the wild waiting to be upgraded. So, it's good to have a place with lots of great upgrade info and helpful members.

Yea, the spam IS really annoying.

davbow knows about the spam problem, and hopes to be able to do something about it (the board needs some work). I tried to remove the spam, but it keeps coming in so fast it's downright annoying and very time consuming.

As an administrator on another website, one thing we did was require new posters to get through a "Captcha" process in order to register. When a few still got through, we then required them to post an intro FIRST (And be reviewed by a mod or an admin for approval first before it posted) before making any more posts.

This cut down on about 99% of the spammers. We have since gone SSL and now it's completely non existent.

We're using phpBB.

I hope not. I still have my 630i, my wife is using it. At least the spammers are only in one section at this time.

I really hope that something can be done about the spam. It is such a great shame that the last of the XPS 630 lovers have to put up with this crap!

I'm really tired of the spam as well. Isn't there an administrator that can do something about it?

I'm still running both of my XPS 630i s, after I did the video card upgrade, it has really breathed new life into them.

Matter of fact my XPS 720 is running better than ever, so much cooler with the pair of GTX660SC 3GB.

Unless there is another major change in proformance in new CPU design I think I'll be keeping the 630s kicking for some time.

As for spammers... I make it a point to black list every product I see spamed or Popup ad that I am forced to endure.

I still have my 630i. I just upgraded the RAM from 6 to 8 and upgraded the GPU from a 9400GT to the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Superclocked. Purring like a kitten!
