Thanks but can you link me separately to the items? I can't view your wish list
link is not working?
Stupid wish list...
lol, that cpu costs over 100$ in denmark, and a decent 785 board costs 120$
I have one of each coming. It had free shipping 2 days ago Nice cheap setup.
Thanks Hogan. It'll be nice to throw a nice vreg cooler on that board and call it a day I'll really consider this. I'll keep you guys posted if I purchase anything
I know this isn't directly related to BOINC or WCG, but does anyone have any idea for MOSFET coolers for my Gigabyte board? They're hot enough that it hurts to touch them, even for a fraction of a second. Or would a spare fan pointed at them be enough?
think thermalright makes some http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_page/product_page/product_mosfet_cooler.html
Eeek, those look expensive. Maybe I'll pick up some of these if a spare fan doesn't help enough
Ion the cheaper solution would be a fan, temps will drop tremendously. However a cooler would look much nicer
cut up a spare heatsink and attach them with thermal tape
Currently there's basically no room for a fan, I'll take out the IO shield, and mount a fan outside the case blowing over them (behind the IO stuff, I only ever use 1 USB port so w/e)
I'll see what spare HSFs I have, I think I have a P3 HSF somewhere
Kind of OT, but does anyone know where or what happened to Mike047?
That'll work, I mean if you don't ever use more than one USB slot, then do it
Never heard of him again. he was a base camper right? Maybe we can find him over there??
I thought originally he was at XS then came over here for a long time to get this team established, then did the base camp thing, but returned for a short while here. I do remember that he eventually went back to his hometown team Zirconia, but he hasn't put out any production in sometime now.
Just curious because he was the one that got me involved with this team and gave me some amazing deals on the hardware that eventually started me on all my major upgrades.
Really cool guy Hope all is well with him.
I hope so too, let's keep each other posted if we hear about him shall we?
Yea mike047's a really good guy! I think he was fixing to retire... I believe he had been out of work for awhile and waiting on his retirement. I hope everything is well with him! Last I hear he was base jumping with the last base jumpers.
I'm down an E6600 today.. I've got the OS reinstalled hopefully I can get it back up and crunching Monday!
EDIT: Not retire from WCG, but I do remember him say he was going to cut back a bit.
Thanks bro, if you talk to him tell him we all say hi and wish him the best
It what I use to cool my ram and chipset. Convenient little buggers.
Just looking at them is convenient
Now that I see a few using it I notice a lot more users having these.
i bought a spot cool when they first got listed at newegg. Mine didn't see use till i put the i7 under water then i had to use it to cool the chipset/mosfet heatsink
How well do they work? I really need something for cooling the mosfets on my Gigabyte board (an OCed quad with no mosfet heatsinks doesn't seem to be good), and there's no room for a conventional fan
