    Yeah, I would think that too, except "my local thrift store" is Goodwill. A major non-profit chain.

    They just don't care, the trick is, to get there as soon as they open, after they stock the shelves with new stuff.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    Don't have to buy a new cpu :D

    Decided to retry the thing today and its working :D

    The only thing different is time, and also I accidentally launched the processor across the room this morning. Must of hit it just in the right spot or something crazy XD

    Also got my 5770 installed.

    Now I just need to tidy my rig up.

    The processor was sitting on the side in like a flat tube of cardboard, you know for storage, but I picked it up and turned too quickly the processor went flying out the tube like a bullet and hit my coffee mug!

    Sipping from it right now :cool:

    Not tried to see if I can still overclock the processor yet, but can't be bothered to set up my loop at the moment.



    What sort of temperatures do q6600s put out when they're under stock cooling?

    ( I can't tell myself as I don't have a stock cooler, but wondering how this heatpipe cooler I have is doing)

    Nice, this little cooler is doing very well then, especially for its size.

    Idling around 20c underload 40c.

    It uses a 70mm fan the cute little thing XD

    Would any UK members be up for trading my brand new XFX 5770 for a 4870 + cash

    I only bought the thing because I thought I could stick my t-rad on it and have crazy low temperatures @ 1ghz, how ever as ATI are fucktarded they've opted to use 43mm mounting holes.

    Thus completely making the purchase pointless for me, I have no DX11 games nor can I afford any now due to buying a HD5770.

    I've never been more disappointed with a graphics card EVER.

    ( and no I'm not impressed by temperatures with the stock cooler, which is cheap POS I've no idea why people are raving about it, I have batmobile version)
