    Got my new pair of Cougar VortexHDB fans in today, and they are running nicely on my 212 EVO. I'd like to thank Norton for selling his NZXT Sentry Mix to me as well, even though most of my fans still run at nearly max anyway since my video card is now the new loud thing inside my PC. Setting it up in the cabinet really helped at least, with some luggage bags eating much of the noise that would be annoying me. :D

    For having "Ghost" cooling, this video card sure has crappy fan profiles. At 70c it goes to 50% and sounds like one of those Nidec Beta fans blasting away, but I set them to 47% where they seem to blend in well with my other fans. :)
    Norton says thanks.

    I had a stick of DDR2 RAM die in a family members computer, does anyone have a single 1gb DDR2 PC6400 stick they could help me out with?

    If I can't find a 1gb I may take you up on that. I suppose 1.5GB of RAM wouldn't slow Win7 down too much. Thanks, CP.

    I'm currently running 1GB, and it's miserable, but 1.5GB should be better. I'll check when I get home from NYC, I might have a 1GB stick....I had a bunch (like 8), but I don't know how many have been used in the computers I sold.

    For a full time cruncher even 2GB is not enough. Just gets laggy when CPU is under full load and most of the RAM is used up. But that can be configured right?

    I appreciate it. I attempted to use it with 1GB and it is painfully, painfully slow :(

    Actually I don't think it's too bad. I run my PentiumDC rig with 2GB of RAM...it sits in the closet and crunches and I check on it once a week. My C2D-M was my main computer/cruncher for a while, and did pretty well with 2GB of RAM...not great, but I didn't have any issues. With 1GB it is rather awful, however.

    Oh, I understand. I'm on a netbook ATM, and with BOINC & 1GB of RAM it's not pleasant :p
    I'll let you know what I find...would something slower than PC2-6400 also be OK?

    All my crunchers have atleast 4gb minimum. And the 2 I use on a regular basis have 8gb and one is getting ready to get another 8gb just because.

    It's not too bad, but not great neither. Gets laggy at times.

    I crunched with 1GB of DDR2 in one of my cruncher and it would keep locking up but when I added a stick which made it 2GB it ran perfectly.

    Yes, a slower stick would probably work fine (although I would prefer to keep it at 800 since thats the speed of the other stick).

    Thanks,

    Alright, I have a 1GB stick of DDR2-800 (perhaps a 2nd around here somewhere)....PM me your addy and I'll get it sent out this week.

    My P4 Cruncher, running Mint, has only 768MB of RAM. It is running like a champ! I think it may even jump over my main rig, This Old Comp, running Win7 w/ 2.25GB. Of course there is the matter of the MGHz...2.8 in the P4 versus 2 in This Old Comp.

    It might be a while but, T.O. Comp has 71 results and the P4 already has 45.

    Oh, I almost forgot! My local computer guru buddy has a SATA drive for the MAD Cruncher! I should have it sometime next week, maybe even Sun.

    I should have that noise-maker up and running for a few days. I may have to move out of this place...rent issues. I'm hoping to talk him into giving me another chance, since work at the Day Labor place and a few other new connections, have been looking up. If it doesn't work out... well, I'll let you all in on it, probably from the Library! Sad, things seemed to be looking good for me on a bunch of fronts, then this crazy bombshell...Oh well. :ohwell:

    This'll be a long shot but does anyone happen to have a decent cpu cooler for 1156? I have a stock one but that leaves a cpu without one. Looking to get something that'll do a good job while oc'ing an i3. Let me know if anyone can help me on this one. I wouldn't ask but given my situation. well you know.

    Thanks team

    I can't help you out at this moment but a Hyper 212+ should do the job for under $30 NEW.
