    My numbers go up and down just like all of you. I crunch to help, but it does help justify all the toys and fun. Have a 500$ chip that I just found so back to the games.:roll::roll:

    It runs at 78 C now. It used to be lower so I better clean it soon.

    Edit: Changed the settings to 50 %. This laptop is meant to last at least 2 years and I got a bit worried.

    I am sorry but you cannot run a i7 2600K on a ASUS Rampage III Extreme LGA 1366. The most expensive motherboard for the LGA 1155 is the:
    MSI Big Bang-Marshal (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 (B3) ...
    As far as I know ASUS does not have a Rampage motherboard for the LGA 1155 series...

    Thanks guys, I actually sent this to JR yesterday but he had some phone issues so he just got this now and posted it. I decided to come online really quickly to check up on things.

    My mom is doing much better, but the fact that this can repeat (according to the doctor) is pretty scary. It was heartbreaking seen her in the hospital bed how she was, just really caught me off guard and I must say I didn't handle it very well. But shes doing better, so that's what matters at this point.

    Thank you guys! :respect: :respect:

    Glad to hear she is doing okay. I think I would have reacted the same as you. Hang in there man.

    CP, My mom died of a massive stroke. She survived it but was on life support and we all had to make the difficult decision as to when to "Pull the plug." :( I'm glad to hear she is doing good.

    My thoughts are with you and your mom.....hopefully it does not go the course that my mom went. Stay in touch buddy, even by PM if you like. I'm here for you.

    CP, You advised me. With your experience should you really ask that question? And what are the specs on your second rig that you want to cool? I have some ideas if you want my input. ;)

    That cooler has some awesome reviews and ratings. But wonder if anyone runs it.

    2nd rig is a S775 Pentium D, no overclock, just two extra cores because I have them, but I have a OEM style cooler that sucks big time!

    Ya Better to post the HW you are wanting to cool it. I have no xp with that cooler. I ve read a lot of reviewas and I'm pointing towards Zalman.

    I hope you find an answer. Worse comes to worse, use your gut instinct! :D

    That cooler is awesome, but you have to get the thermal paste done right. (Make sure you get it into the grooves of the cooler base, otherwise it affects your temps.)

    Also, the stock fan is loud, I recommend replacing it with a pair of 120mms that can get the job done while being quiet.

    Thanks guys, I'm going to be going to Tiger Direct either today or tomorrow to see what they have, if they have something I like there I'll grab it. I'll keep you guys posted. I have it crunching at 60% when I'm home (AC on, temps around 56-57ºC), and at only 20% when I'm at work (AC OFF, temps around 60ºC). So yeah, need to get a cooler soon.

    Yep the Hyper 212 would make a big difference I believe in the overall temps on that rig CP:toast:

    My buddy just joined us with his E8400, but he has a QX9650 coming his way this week, so that's another two cores, and then another two next week. :)

    He should be popping up in here shortly.


    I already bought it, the fan is not that bad, It's a bit loud in my room already so no big deal. :) Awesome cooler for it's price.

    So Lauren's brother said he doesn't want an upgrade to his PC.

    Looks like I'm about to build a 24/7 cruncher!
