Looks like you should be fine 'til the new HS arrives
yea it should. i just bumped the CPU up to 3.2ghz @ 1.4v and im testing it out using intelburntest on max. right now im at 62 deg at full load.
I've never ran intelburntest, but if you really want to see how hot your cpu can get, try small FFTs in prime95 or run OCCT's linpack test.
intelburntest is a linpack test like LinX. i ran Prime for about 15 minutes just now and got no errors.
The only bad thing about this case is that i had to take out the hotswap bay to install my harddrive due to having only 1 IDE slot on the board so ive gotta have the hardrive close to the DVD burner so i can hook them both up. I would like to find two small sata drives to replace this one. i have a friend that has two in a old PC i might hijack!
I almost forgot! i took pictures but forgot to upload! here she is
Lookin' good there Brandon!
Yea it looks good but they flash on my camera make it look stupid. ill try to take one last pic of it in natural light!
I was going to mention that actually
Anyways, it looks great
well i took some more pics but i cannot get enough light here in my desk area so tomorrow i might take it outside and get some good pics. Now im installing the new 10.4 ATI drivers for the 4200HD IGP video that the motherboard has
From the looks of the pics you have it looks like it would be doable to remove that card reader, the front panel jacks, and cut a hole there for better airflow for the 80mm fan. Was thinking about getting one of these to try doing a first-time mod on but got hung up on the airflow from the front. Hmmm......
BTW, nice job on the assembly so far!
I STOLE UR BOARD!:
How long before it grows into a full PC?
WOW its been a while since i've seen one of those Intel fans... I think some heat spreaders on the ram would help a little... that fan on the ram is the same one i have on my mom's sempron 3000... keeps it at under 100F
I'm surprised it hasn't tried to attack yet
to be true, the left Fan is from a socket A Athlon XP 2200+, and the right, big Fan is from an Intel LGA 775 cooler!
That looks great man
That's very acceptable in a mini case on a stock cooler.
It? Don't you mean "they?" I definitely see more than one snake in that jungle.
Yeah I hate when the flash of the camera shows all the dust and finger prints too.:shadedshu The new HTPC looks realy good brandon! Open her up and lets see some inside shots.
well its good to be back fellas.. I have no new pics for ya , but im running the same hardwares as last year.. just got the MOBO RMA number from ASUS a YEAR later for that Maximus II Formula I got last march...(bad asus) So Im running this P5Q Pro Turbo ( all the turbo means .. is that they have included the new TurboV software for this board.. a Pro with 1 extra heatsink and new softwares..) But while Im waiting for the M2F to return Ill be using this baby.. so far it can do 515 on the bus .... and I had a hard time getting 500 on the M2F.. I really hope they fix my board....
Anyways.... all is well guys.. keep up the great work fellas! And yes... Im still planning on adding the WC Loop soon to this rig.. as soon as I get my board back from ASUS.. That way I can get what I can out of this rig untill I save up for the new rig... next year =]
Welcome back bro!
Nice to have you back bro
I should have taken a before picture but that would have been really gross. I had fun with a can of air and some thermal grease today. Squeaky Clean!!
Speaking of cleaning, I need to desperately clean both of my rigs, the PCB on my GB board which was blue is now white
Yeah, I need to clean mine out. My cat is shedding right now and my PC has been trying to suck it all up.
Oh, and I hate waiting for USPS to show up.. I want my 5770!
