here is the link to applying thermal paste i was talking about
thanks, I already redid it.
After it burned in, I started getting some more reasonable temps. I went a bit overboard last night and played mass effect for something like 5 hours, and I actually could see my cpu temp dropping during my playing time (started around 56, ended at 48-50).
Wow. I just finished Mass Effect, and this is all I can say: What a ride! That was probably the most fun I've had playing a computer game in a long time. Well spent $50 =)
Anyways, my cpu is running at 34-36 C idling, and 44-49 under load.
Man you ripped right through that. Glad you enjoyed it though, it was definatly one of my favorite gaming experiences of late. I just started again on hardcore w/ all my high equipment and such, this time doin it renegade style.
hehe, yea, first time through I went all paragon, I'm gonna try renegade and see how it turns out. Gonna get full intimidation options as well.
cool deal man, now let us know when you wanna start to OC that beast
Already started OCing the GPU, trying out 701/1752/1022 (core clock, shader clock, and mem), I'm going to test it for stability then work up from there.
Right now I'm going to wait a bit on the CPU, and just enjoy the games I have because I'm going away on Thursday and am not coming back until 11 days after that. Going to referee at this "Olympic Development Camp", where basically the best under-14 girls in california go for training(this is soccer). Either gonna be fun, or hard as hell, I can't decide which...
