    i have 1 infraction (expired) and 3 warnings. one of the ways to get instabanned imo is just start a thread cussing off all the TPU mods and admins, try and make it into a huge wall of text before they turf you out.

    weather or not you get instabanned or infracted first depends on the mods/admins disgression.
    some mods might know you quite well and give you an infraction as a warning rather then just hit the killswitch straight away and send you the way of elvis.

    Its a good way to find out which mod has it in for you as their likely to be the ones that skip the warnings and straight out twat you in the face with the ban hammer.

    on a side note....
    Just for nostalgia, Ive been playing the Original Unreal Tournament on my laptop... I really miss the announcers voice lmao, it still cracks me up.

    I wish TPU had that announcers voice when someone gets ban hammerd.

    mo-mo-mo-mo-monster kill!

    That can be one of two things. Or both :p

    1) When running WCG, the temps top out, and then they "settle" a little bit lower. Leave WCG running for an hour to get a steady temp.
    2) Curing time of your TIM (if any).

    That's what I was thinking bud :) Plus it has 3 years warranty so what the hell. I'm loving it so far. Had to go out for an hr after I got it but I'm just going to start windows update and service pack 1.

    Out of interest, I'm obviously in ahci mode but I'm currently using the Catalyst 11.8 preview drivers. I went to install the AMD AHCI sata drivers but it just said components all up to date. I checked in device manager and it's not showing AMD Sata like it normally would.

    Has anyone got a recent AMD AHCI driver they could upload for me?

    Only one I know of is version 11.7...

    ... did you install a previous version during the installation of Windows 7?

    Sorry, I meant the 11.7 ahci drivers. No I didn't install any previous version.

    I mean performance seems absolutely fine but I just like it all properly done.

    I'll post a HD Tune screenie in a minute. Quite impressed considering I'm running slow ass memory and only a Phenom II@4GHz. Would love to have tried it with my Sandy setup a while ago :)

    He is banned although it is only a timed ban. Should be back soon. Not surprised though as that's happened a few times, he's careful to never to go over the edge of no return. I wonder how he manages it lol, meticulous calculations and lots of lube probably.

    didn't think of that, but it's not too warm here, i'm seriously worried about why i idle about 6'c off my max temp

    EDIT:My CPU fan is making a high pitched noise

    Double Edit:Was going to buy a hyper212+ but the price has sky rocketed lately, now i want a xigmatek S1283, and judging from my temps, i need it fast

    Triple edit:does anyone know roughly where the stock AMD cooler would come on this chart? -->http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2219&page=5

    no, that's a laptop, that's running at 60'c max but since it's a mobile proccesor i think it's rated up to 95

    This is for the AMD phenom ii B55

    I think im going to buy this --> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/xigm...ion-pwm-fan-3x-heat-pipe-lga775-k8-am2-cooler

    I think it's quite good, only 92mm and it gets a score only 1.9'c above the 120MM coolemaster, problem is, most of my regular shops have a really bad heatsink selection at the moment

    EDIT:Whats the best Heatsink that can be bought for under £20?

    Change that, what's the best heatsink that can be bought for under £25?

    Rub it really hard, until it's smooth
