    Yeah, I like it. Ugly and loud, but it keeps things reasonably cool (down to ~43c on the X4 955 even when it's in the upper 80s vs 51c earlier). And 65c on the 8800GTS (vs 83c)

    Yea i like the AMD stock cooler for stock clocks or a slight OC on stock volts.

    This is a AM2+/AM3 board with thuban support (up to 1090T). The OCing on this board is acually better than the DFI 790FX.

    I got it to 3.5ghz @ 1.5v and i let it pass 6 passes of ITB on max RAM so im calling that stable enough. im going to try 3.6ghz but it would only run ITB for about 1 minute before it restarted itself. maybe i have to up the NB volts to get it alittle more stable.

    Ion, it's going to be a new trend!


    Now, to test my dad's 5850.. do I do it a lone? Or go Tri-fire?



    :)

    I love the fact that this is a board that in no way says tri-fire, but says Tri-sli every which way.. Oh, and the fact that I have to go and take the whole front apart, push everything forward for it to fit right!


    Now, I'm hungry...

    look at the Vantage thread and see ;)

    it does really good. Just that this case doesn't like it, and well.. it won't be there long.. Waiting on my chip, so I can give my dad my 860

    Then, we'll see how my set up goes with the tri-fire. :toast:

    I see your box fan, and I raise you an air circulator :cool:

    [​IMG]

    Quick shot from a few weeks ago on a very hot day, trying to keep my CPU under 70c during stress testing with OCCT linpack. My normal load temps rarely see anything more than 55c, idle 20-30c, but as soon as I started OCCT, it shot up to like 77c :eek: so I grabbed the Vornado and it kept things around 68-70c for the duration of the test.
    Sorry for the shit pic, like I said it was taken quickly, and I also had to edit it since I took it at night with no additional lighting.

    :laugh: I grabbed the vornado instead of a box fan, because it creates a very highly focused stream of air :)

    I grabbed a box fan since it's all that I had :p
    I "borrowed" the one out of my brother's room to put in the window, but he wanted it back, so I had to take the fan off of the comp to put in the window to bring in cool air

    I can't tell which way is intake or exhaust since the blades are moving. What direction do you think it is, and why do you think it should face the other way?

    I think that would work nice as intake, providing there's already a good bit of exhaust, or at least lots of vent holes for it to exhaust. However, exhaust would be good as well, to move the air out of the case as fast as possible.

    For my situation, I needed extra intake, especially going over the board.

    The power cord goes into the back of all of my box fans. He appears to have his fan drawing air out of the computer, which wouldn't be a problem, except that I see at least his orange fan and psu are also exhaust fans. He should have his case fans drawing in to use the box fan as an exhaust, or have the box fan blowing in, if his case fans are exhausts.

    Ah, I see. Well, that's pretty much the way I was thinking as well.

    My latest change atm: I replaced my two A.C. ryan orange led front intake fans (see pics below) too some Noctua NF-P12-1300 fans. My ac.ryan fans were starting to crap out by making this funny knocking noise and I got tired of hearing it. So I sacrificed looks for acoustics and my rig still has good temps with less noise.:toast:

    I really like all the orange in your case, and the front fans shouldn't have much of an impact on the overall look of the case, especially since they're behind the front panel anyways.

    Thanks Jesus! Yeah these fans are really and I wouldn't put them anywhere else in my case. Well I was also thinking of getting Noctua's 140mm fans for the top exhaust because the stock ones are crap and they would still be hidden.

    I'd put a 200mm or something up there if you can fit it. Then again, I'd put 200mm+ fans everywhere I could fit them :laugh:

    EDIT: And I'm going to once I buy my new case sometime hopefully this month.
    EDIT2: Anybody know where I can get filters made for fans that big? ie: without buying a big sheet and cutting my own

    I just touched up some areas that i misses. its real easy on this case since its made of aluminum instead of steal. Its read light so i can pick it up and move it around

    Brandon, what paint do you use for the inside of cases? I'm thinking about painting my CM 690 this weekend and would like some advice.
