    Installed a Xig Night Hawk on my main rig last night with a pair of 1500 rpm Scythe Kama Flex fans for Push-Pull.
    The AS5 still needs to break in but temps are running 5c cooler @ 42C while crunching 100% and with a slight overclock to 3.8Ghz on the FX-8150.

    These Night Hawk coolers pull some serious heat off of a cpu but man are they a pain to install :banghead: I'm going to go with water cooling next time.

    Thanks to theonedub for trading with me for these Scythe fans :toast: best fans I've used so far :rockout:

    Welcome back Stinger! :toast:

    See guys? I told you he was alright!! (they were all worried about you ;))

    3.8Ghz??? Surely you can get to 4.0 with the 8150 without any voltage increase!

    :laugh: Yep, just took some much needed R&R for almost a week.

    Well crap, got the 4x4 system up running, all updated, WCG running, and pow! Blew a damn breaker in the house. :laugh:

    Then I remembered that I needed to find a place to put this system other than the computer room. :p

    Now I have it shut down.........Again LOL and trying to find a place that I can run this power hungry monster. :twitch:

    This damn place has the computer room, bedroom, and part of the living room all on one stupid 15 amp breaker.

    Trying to convince the wife that I need to put this in the laundry area which runs on a 20 amp. Not going over so well. :laugh:

    I guess I just get edgy from time to time- had some bad things happen to good people in the recent past. Hope you enjoyed your time off there stinger :eek:

    I was only running 3.8 because it was running a little to warm for me on the old Dark Knight cooler. I'll be at 4.0 in a few days after the AS5 breaks in a bit more :D

    *Note- the 6200 is crunching 100% at 4.0 while running a steady 38C on the other Night Hawk cooler

    My mainboard is giving me trouble (90% sure). I'm waiting on a new PSU to make sure it's not that and then I will replace the board. Don't want to kill a new board if the psu killed this one.

    Considering trading/selling the 1045T for an FX 6 or 8 core if I do need a new board :)

    May I know why? I mean your 1045T is probably faster than any FX. Are FX better than Phenom II at crunching?

    FX's run well for crunching imho

    FX 8 cores can run 4-6,000 ppd depending on the speed they are clocked at. FX 6 cores run about 75% of the output of the 8 core.

    I'm running 3 FX and the 1045T for crunching- I prefer the FX's ... reason I'm considering selling/trading the 1045T is that I may be able to pickup an FX 8 core as a direct swap. :)

    IMHO 1045T cannot be faster than FX-81xx in any case. I'm running 2 hexa-cores Phenoms and even 1075T 3,6 ghz overclocked is 15-20% slower than eight-cores FX 4,2.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I can attest to the phenom's not being able to keep up with the fx's as I am running 5 Phenom systems and 1 Athlon x2 system and I can just bearly keep up with Norton and Daimus.

    The phenom got 2 core less, is clocked 0.6GHz less and is only 15% slower. For me, FX is a fail but it's cool, everyone have a different opinion about these FX.

    I won't say they are a fail considering they get anywhere from 1 to 3k ppd better then my Phenom x6 systems.

    I assume that your internet is ok since you are posting here so it can't be that the PC has no connection the the net. If you click Advanced > Do network communication does the error always appear?
