    Got my 5850 in the mail yesterday but didn't get home until this evening to mess around with it. Seems to be running smoothly so far. Idle's in the low 40's with the fan on auto and I got it down to friggen 32C with it at 100%. Big difference from the 4870.

    On a side note, check out this little Shaun I found at the flea market for $2 yesterday :cool:

    That's just lovely bro, love what you did with the external rad. That's just great bro. What PCI fittings bracket is that, Koolance?

    You really gotta get rid of that IDE cable, when you do, that'll be the finishing touch to ultimate cleaness and beauty of your PC :rockout:

    Yeah, I either remove the whole drive and get a external one or get a black rounded IDE cable.
    Yup Koolance bracket, it BARELY fit the fittings, tight fit but it works and no leaks :)

    Thanks btw :D

    Black rounded IDE cable will be much better. If it's a optical drive I just got an external one, makes life sooo much easier :laugh:

    That's what I did :)

    Internal drives are very cheap, you can get a nice used dvd burner for $20 shipped. That mixed with the fact that they're easily installable in every case and that you're going to have to have a SATA power line out anyways for the hard drive(s) leads me to believe that there's no real reason not to have one. That's just my opinion anyways, I'd always have one. Although I don't burn a ton of stuff I wouldn't want to have to deal with an external one and its lower burn speeds and such.

    I agree ^^ especially with my CM RC690 case. The 5.25" bays are well designed and easy to install/remove optical drives. My $25 LG 22x DVD +-RW treats me just fine :)

    I got my 2nd radiator in today, it didn't turn out as I hoped unfortunately. I had a couple angles off. I need a second 45 degree fitting to replace the 90 degree on the block so I can flip the rear radiator around. Had a leak.. fixed it. It's going to take a long time to get the air out of this thing. Even with just the pull fan and the cheapest 120 radiator I could buy, I shaved about 5 degrees off my temps.

    That is 1/2" ID. I got some new white stuff, but that will go on after I get my fitting situation settled. :)

    Nope, not anymore. :laugh: I just figured I could use the extra cooling with a Thuban on the way. Plus, I should be able to run my current processor a bit higher since things are staying below 45c.

    I'm thinking so. My memory controller on my 965 isn't very good, so I need to run close to 1.4v for a 2750mhz NB. That creates a lot of heat right there.

    [​IMG]

    Before I would be at, at least 48-49c already. Having the rear radiator properly mounted with a push\pull should help even more. It is a PITA working in this tight space with little room to work. Getting the block mounted properly using a micrometer is really troublesome with the tubing in the way. :ohwell:

    head over to the new vantage comp, i posted a new score on their, you will see my cpu temp using pcprobe, not full load temps but not far off, print screened soon as it finished.

    sometimes i think it might not be telling the truth...
