    air coming out of it is nearly always warm to really warm (not hot)
    at least that thing stopped to buzz,like it did in the beginning, and it doesnt stink anymore after molten plastic, it did that for 2 months;)

    the modxstream shouldnt be used too much by the system,tho?

    mosfets are cool, its really a big heatsink :)

    how old is the powersupply? I don't think your system would draw too much power from it.. now the buzzing and molten plastic smell.. would you care to tell me more about that? That doesn't sound good

    buzzing isn't good at anytime. I think you should have RMA'ed it then.I think your problems could be the PSU

    voltages are fine so far,but look at this:

    yesterday,in the time of linx failing, i also achieved this::wtf:

    12v went unreasonably high,other volts dropped dead.
    system must have crashed? :wtf: but it didnt.

    i think you need to try another psu. Voltages doing that means regulation problems and that is caused by bad manufacturing or failing components(that is the common causes :laugh:)

    i do another longer time test today... lets see what that brings... i hope it was software error...
    do you think my system would remain crashfree, if the voltages dropped so hard?

    It could have been software, it also could have remained stable.

    Either way, I would DEFINITELY RMA that PSU!

    And never test with software, get a multimeter hook it up and go from idle to stressed, wait a few, back down and do it over again, you need to let your power supply get warm also.

    yes it could be possible because it wasn't for long and when your stressing it like that your putting most(but not all) stress on the 12v

    Since it seems that it is not meant for me to go i7 at this time (keep missing out on deals :( ) I decided to OC my Q9550 :D I must say this CPU and 780i makes OCing a lot easier than my P35, lol. Less than 10mins in the BIOS and I have it up to 3.4ghz, 2hr30min OCCT Linpack stable and going on 24hrs WCG F@H stable as well. Never had to clear the CMOS either- I actually like this setup a lot :)

    Curious, what P35 did you have?
    It took me about 10 minutes to get my q9400 - 3.6ghz rock stable about perfect on the voltage, ended up dropping it 1 tick.

    I'll keep you covered, the quad will be running all day today, and now it's running x64 Windows and BOINC, so output should be up a bit.

    thanks :toast: I got it to overclock alittle after changing the heatsink not vary high but better then nothing (11x226) just got to stress test it now.

    EDIT:I am going to try for higher as i am still on stock voltage and have got this thing to 2.9ghz stable before

    loading in windows at 11x250@1.35v. now to stress it

    It was a P35-DS3L. I guess I shouldn't put the blame on the MB, the CPUs were most likely at fault, lol (E5200 and Q9300 would not clock, Q6600 clocked semi decent).

    I would normally pay even $100 for an OS, but I got Windows 7 Pro Upgrade (normally costs $200 via Newegg) for $30, which was too good of a deal to pass up. The only problem is I'm going to have to put off a new video card a bit longer now :(
