    My 2600k will be down for an hour or two today. Going to install my new Corsair SP120 fans and take the time to clean the H100 radiator while I am at it. I'll post pics when I am done :D

    I'll be installing my new lil' FX setup in the Julia rig tonight

    and

    Got a 7850 to put in my main rig :D
    Still thinking about what I want to do with the 6870 Hawk.... I'll probably hang onto it for awhile to see if GPU crunching becomes a more regular thing.

    Quick Review of the Corsair SP120 High Performance:
    +Moves a lot of air
    +Quieter than stock H100 (these at 100% sound like the stock at the medium setting)
    +Rings offer opportunity for small customization
    -Slight drone from fans
    -Full rubber mounts deform easily
    -Does not function with Corsair's own H series fan controller (knew that going in, but still)

    Pic of them installed on H100 with rings painted gold:

    They way there shaped looks sweet. I may look them up for further specs. Sweet rig you got there. From personal use of the fans, Would you recommend them?

    I'd like to have a little more time with them before I rec them to people (mainly to get a better idea of how the perform- initial results look promising). From an aesthetics standpoint, I think they are very nice. They look much better than the GT AP-15s I was eying before these were released and although spec-wise they are a downgrade from stock, the H100 fans were about as plain and loud as you could find.

    Sounds good. I wish they had higher cfm though personally. You can always fan control them anyways to make em quiet then crank up for gaming.

    No overclock for my cruncher/gamer computer. :(

    The APU's locked anyway, so it was base clock playing only, and my memory is not into that game. :S

    Standard clocked PPD is nice enough though. :D

    I haven't overclocked any of my crunchers. Just to afraid to. I can't afford for them to go down due to me pushing them to hard. And knock on wood I haven't really had any problems that weren't easily taken care of.

    I don't overclock many of mine either. 2 rigs have minor, 200Mhz or so, bumps on their clocks.

    At my current ppd output it is more effective for me to add another rig or swap a CPU for a few more cores.

    **UPDATE- I swapped out the 960T for an FX-6100. Current core count is 20 Bulldozer/6 Phenom II cores for 26 cores total! :D

    I am in the same boat. Overclocks won't net me that much of a gain. I need moars cores.

    Hey guys! I'm back! How's the team holding up?

    My WCG output is a bit low ATM, currently I have a PentDC @ 2GHz (Conroe based), C2D @ 2.8GHz (Wolfdale), CeleronDC @ 2.4GHz (Conroe) and an Atom 1.5GHz...so my points will be low. That being said, I'm planning on buying an i7 2600k before I head off to college in August, so that should help!

    I'm not going to get more cores any time soon, so getting what I can from what I have is more interesting. :)

    Depends a lot on where my monetary situation is going, but hoping to possibly have enough for a 3rd gen APU when they come around. :)

    And also, it's my gamer rig too, so getting the GPU portion overclocked was a puller for trying too.

    Great to have you back :toast:



    One of my x6's I use for gaming also. It's able to crunch while I game which is really cool.
