i knew that, just testing....
Opened up a 200GB Maxtor drive I had laying around (never buy anything Maxtor). It's got bad sectors up the bum and gets scalding hot while running. But, it's still pretty on the inside like all HDD's.
I just noticed that the arm looks like it's floating above the platter in the 3rd picture, but it's actually right on it. Optical illuusionn
what is the artwork from on ur gpu F1reFly?
I was going to wait for the Matrix, but that looks beautiful.
that looks awesome
gratz on the new card
no shortage of copper in that badboy
only thing i cant seem to get the mem stable at 1300mhz ?? it has samsung chips and plus idk what to much volts also
Snapped some shots of my new motherboard.
my favorite picture of the day
More in build log in Sig...
decided to take of the cooler and apply new thermal paste, and that was a good ideaXD
maybe i should lap it?
i just redid my paste
you also had a ton of paste on it?
yep but good thing its wasnt all hard lol
also did you see my pics above
haha its also a new cardXD i put on some mx2, saw a 8c drop
that card had way too much paste on it, kinda makes you wonder what robot screwed up and said lets put 3 squirts on this one
>>>(FIH) The Don off topic but how does that Kingston SSD perform, I saw it in your specs and have one like it arriving Monday
they always do imo, EVERY single card i have owned had too much ont, but thats okay, better that than nothing
uhm it works okay, but its not top notch for OS disc, mine kinda "laggs" every once in a while, and honestly, i cant feel any difference from my 7200.12 to this, except that i dont have to wait on things to be done, all programs etc starts when i click the icons, no waiting on loading etc
whats the best way to clean of the thermal paste from a chip? especially if its gone a bit hard
high % alcohol like 90% or higher, for the hard part on the chip it self i use either my credit card or something similar, some hard plastic
I use ArctiClean. Stuff is amazing. Even takes off those hard, pink, gum-like pads you find under some chipset coolers. Lasts a long ass time too. I've had a single kit for like 2 years now.
Thanks Wile E!
I have always used alcohol, but this looks like a better solution
i agree with wile I have arcticlean its rediculous it would melt through a brick if i told it to. and did I forget to mention it smells awesome?! it smells like oranges dude. good stuff.
Bit of lemon juice should do a fine trick too
