Sounds like you need to watercool your PC Less fan noise, moar cooling.
I've already got a modded CoolIT Eliminator. I don't really have the money or patience to set up a custom loop though
To be honest, my cpu, gpu, and hdd temps are pretty nice even in the summer, it's my board that produces the most heat, and then the eliminator pretty much chokes my exhaust.
I've considered getting a small air conditioner, but I don't really know what to look for in one so I've never felt comfortable spending the money for it.
you can luck up and get a 5200 BTU AC unit from walmart for like 99$ when there having a sale. BTW your combos going out this morn as soon as USPS opens up
Ok since i sold the 790FX board i have ordered my HTPC case and guys if you need one and are in the US this is the time to get one! This Case is on sale for a CHEAP PRICE! its 39.99 with free shipping and with a MIR of 10$ so you can get it for 29.99 total! I just ordered mine!
Also was thinking of going a nice interior paint job!
i've heard those are some SICK cases. Make sure to take lots of pictures when it comes in!
Oh i will sniper! im going out to my storage building to see how many cans of paint i have so i can strip it and paint it once it arrives! only concern i just realized is that i dont know if i will get to use my evercool transformer 4 in it?
best part about that case is I'm pretty sure you can use full-height coolers! You just may have to install the heatsink with the motherboard tray installed in the case. it would have been nice if they made the 120 fan removable with the tray on the back of the case...
NICE! this time i will probly do a push/pull config to get better cooling with the new board! im hoping this new 785 board will OC the 5600+ more
Whether or not it is a good case doesn't even matter for thirty bucks
heck yea it is! cant wait to get it
Here's my finished i7 build
Looks good kiex!
how long before those casters break i wonder? My brothers HAF 932 casters lasted about 5 minutes...
heh the gfx card gets bent from the weight of the AC Xtreme
Been going well for me for just over a month of constant trolleying around.. I do hope they stay that way though. Won't be moving now for a while.
It was the single most difficult thing I've ever bothered putting on a computer. The heatsinks kept falling off all the time and I had to constantly open up and re-fit. Seems to be going fine now that they've been heated up with some F@H. Worth the trouble though knocks 50C off stock heatsink temps.. and it's silent!
I'll be rocking the little 2400 Pro for a while until I can find a good deal on a 5850.
how much did you sell the 4870 for?
Bought it in June last year for $209 ($189 really because I got the egg to refund me $20 for a price drop) and sold it for $130. I figured it would be wise to go ahead and get rid of it before the next gen hits and I wouldn't be able to get $100 for it.
i linked you in your WTB thread to a ref 5850, did you see it?
BTW here it is again if you didnt see it! also he dropped the price!
HIS Reference 5850
Yeah man I saw it but that's a little more than what I'm wanting to pay for a used regular one. I mean I could get this one with what looks like a really good cooler for $35 more brand new.
Is it better to get a reference or non-reference model? I know the non-ref. coolers can be better but don't you lose some features?
i had that one, and if you wanna play with overclocking then its a no-go, you can NOT raise the voltage on it
but if you're not into that then go for it, its silent
I would go with the reference card if you plan on OCing it but if not the get the newegg card for the warranty
I would only do some small-time OC'ing through CCC with it. I think I'd take silence over a big OC any day. If I can't find a used one and they don't do any price changes on the egg I think I'll get that one.
Psh, I'm closing in on 1000.
What card is that? A 4870x2?
If so, I'm still trying to find one without forking over 80 bucks or so. Everyone that has them cheap is oos. Go figure.
Wow, i actually ordered the same heatsink and the same fan to go with it about two days ago.
Looks like a very nice build.
