Damn crap stock coolers, slapping fans around the HD 5870 only dropped its temps 5c.
errrm am i seeing right, is there a bottle of orange juice in your case?
indeed there is.
lol maybe he ran out of funds to make a fan mount?
That’s alright then, thought my girlfriend gave me food poisoning again, cautiously looks over shoulder....
Are temps any better when you set up the fan to blow on your card rather then suck heat away?
this is mine Im just waiting to get the side panel CNCed then I should be done
lights on room lights on
lights on room lights off
sorry but looks like those lights you wrap around the tree or ploe during xmas
~same. Maybe 1c win for blowing on top of the GPU.
if they are i think that quite cool, it dont look bad, must be allot cheaper and if they are tree lights took a bit of modding to hook up
they were supposed to be for cars but they dont look as bright in RL and once the side is done they will provide a nice subtle glow
yeah im not much for lights inside the machine but if it works it works nice ghetto mod man
Or he could get my elcheapo X4 920 Quad? lol
i oced my moms to 3.2GHz on the stock cooler
a 3200+ at moment i am trying to get a fx55 for it
i finally did it today!:
in a few days, i will be a lucky owner of SSD power!
i hope, it will make my rig a lot snappier!
isnt that a bit expensive for a 32gb? but grats bro, will be getting mine next week i hope
outside of germany, maybe
was the cheapest SSD which could be trusted in my opinion... do you think, it was no good buy?
what one do you got yourself?
nah, its the same price as in denmark i'd say,
so yeah i think its pretty good, supertalent should be quite nice afaik
i got a demo version that havent been used,
this one http://www.komplett.dk/k/ki.aspx?sku=585379
got it for around 65€ , + they have support for TRIM with this one afaik,
i saw the 64gb Kingston SSD, but i didnt wanted it, because its based on a Samsung controller i believe, whereas the Supertalent has an Indillinx Controller. It was much of a choice "do i take capacity, or speed?" i chose the speed,tho the capacity would have been cool too!
awesome deal on your side tho, you can get more expensive HDDs, that are slower!
for this price(and an unused demo version) i would recommend everyone to get an SSD!
wanna share some benches, when our drives arrive?
im interested, how different they may perform!
well im not into all the technical stuff regarding ssd's, but i just couldnt say not, and idc if it has 20mb read/write more or less, then i would rather have double the sixe
but we are all different thank god for that haha
and yes , what should we use? HDtune or? i dont know any other programs haha
I have informed myself a little about different controllers, overclocked caches and special Flashcells, so im not much more informed, only a bit
nevermind, that wont be a problem
i also have to admit, the extra space is much more worth, considering usefulness!
but i couldnt resist the Urge, to get the fastest i could get for my money
oh there are great differences! Lets say... the SSD speed the manufacturer claims, is usually taken from a single, best running benchmark. its as much lie, as fan specs
Also, is difficult to measure, compared to normal HDDs, its like comparing a Lithium-Polymer accumulator, to an ordinary NiMH or NiCad accumulator. You cant simply do that, because its hell of a different, much more advanced tech.
i believe we should stick to AS SSD Benchmark, it was made to compare SSDs.
furthermore i would recommend PC Mark Vantage, and HD Tune and ATTO as comparance Benchmarks.
We could even name it "Entry Level SSD´s compared" and start a new thread, if you like to!
I can see you have haha
but sure, if that is what you wanted then that is what you should get imo
and yes i know all speeds published by the companies are not so accurate, but it should be somewhere near it + this ssd is only a test to see if i like it in the long run, and then i will go for a 100gb+ model in the future.
or 2 of these in RAID 0
i will find those programs and start downloading them so i have them ready when it arrives
and yes i think it would be good to make a seperate thread, so we dont use some thread that isnt related to the subject
Separate names with a comma.
