    Not mine, all is good [= and ontop of that it reads and writes fine anyway, I did notice though when I turn the music up my sub disconnects the cable. I just wish I know this before I started cloning the disk -.- (what a waste of 2hours worth of power).

    Here's my Ghetto mod the fan on my less than 1 yr old HD5770 died:shadedshu so out came an old PSU fan with low start V and low curent draw, replaced the power cable with the one from the HIS fan and away we went

    [​IMG]

    the only good thing to come out of it is Lower temps at load and very quiet at idle

    Right now i have a stock gainward on it (not to be confused with the nice reference design with the copper heatpipes) witch is an absulute crap. i get around 93C on HEAVAN 2.0 loops so its kinda scary. im hoping that the S1 will block the temps to 43-45C. yeah... the S1 kicks ass. ATM i am waiting for screws that my friend sent me for this thing, cuz i dont have any.

    Hello. I'm new on here.
    I read the other ghetto thread,
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55387&page=22
    but not this one. (I'm a little drunk, and I need to go to bed!)

    I figured this was still the best place to ask about my next build.
    GA-MA78LMT-US2H
    phenom ii x2 550,
    2gb corsiar 1333 ddr3,
    heatsink from a junk pentium 4.(its not too bad, copper base, lots of fins)
    I blew all my cash on the parts, so I need to find a zero cost cooling method.
    Planning to fasten the unknown cooler master heatsink to my phenom with zip ties. Anyone have a better idea? It's only temporary until I find a new pump for my water cooling.

    EDIT--- My chair keeps falling apart. Surely that counts as ghetto? :(

    That would be a great idea if I had the stock cooler. I expect I won 't, as the guy never mentioned the cooler in the listing.
    I bought the cpu from ebay, still waiting on bloody useless delivery company. I know the guy sent it because they tried to deliver it already. Instead of re-delivering like they should, my cpu has vanished. Joy. I supose I will get it eventually, but here begin's a quest that is almost certainly going to cost me money I can't afford. Bugger.
    More annoyingly, the rest of the system is sat on my shelf, going out of date, waiting for a cpu.

    If there isn't already a thread by you on the same build, start one. The age of the components don't matter;)
     
    Swamp Monster says thanks.

    another ghetto chipset cooler...

    [​IMG]

    it's a E8400 stock block, i decided that stock chipset cooler was puny so i hacksawed this one and used screws to fit it. it fitted surprisingly clean, there's a low profile 80mm fan on it.

    BTW, p35 can really heat it up! :twitch:
