    Haha!!! That reminds me of my roommates build. He's running an Athlon X2 250 w/ one (1) Sapphire HD 5770 all at stock speed...his PSU? >>> A CM 1000w Silent Pro Modular. :laugh: I kinda talked him into it telling him he's have it for at least 15 years!! In case he upgrades...which I'm sure he will :)

    Very nice pics again adam. Very neat and organized. :toast:

    Oooooo It's Christmas in spring for Nexus!!!! :toast: Cheers mate! I know that feeling....here's a pic of my day...January 9th 2009:

    And I would definitely go for the Dominators. Aside from being excellent RAM, Corsair's warranties and customer service are Top Notch....RMA's issued within 24 hours. I speak by experience. :)

    @adam
    How are you liking the NZXT Vulcan. I was linked to a review of the case by a friend a couple of days ago and really liked the general layout and size of the case. What are your impressions? (other than it's small OFC)

    Yeah, I've gone through two white led's in that reservoir. For some reason they keep burning out on me prematurely. I have two more on the way. :)

    Redid my water loop today and took out the single 120 rad and left the 240 rad in there and also turned the fans so they blew air out the top and i must say temps dropped pretty good. up to 5 deg :) i ran prime95 on max heat for 45 minutes and didnt go above 52 deg :)

    [​IMG]

    *edit*

    Well i did 45 minutes of prime95 on max heat with the cpu @ 4ghz @1.25v and it did fairly well. it got full load at 68deg. Not the coolest temps but it will do

    I just used Prime95 cause it generates the most heat. linX doesnt do a good job. i believe InteBurnTest is the best

    Yes I do want to lap it...never got around to it.

    However...these are my temps right now......I'm running the WCG Client on full while listening to music. So full load.

    Max temp for my CPU is 61c. As is under full load it hovers between 48-50c with an occasional rare peak above 50c.

    Remember this is under full load all four cores at 100%

    That is not hot. Here's a current shot of AOD status monitor as I type this:

    [​IMG]

    Lapping the Big T will lower the temps by 2c at most. Maybe 4c if I lap my CPU as well

    I wish I would have taken pics of all the boxes when I first built my PC :(
    Wooaahhh . . . Bluueee, sooo bluuueee! (bit of an inside joke amongst my friends and I)

    :D
    Really? That looks like you're doing blend or something other than small FFTs and, for me, OCCT's linpack generates ~10c more heat than Prime95, unless you do small FFTs, but even then OCCT is a few degrees warmer. Also in my testing, OCCT catches instability a bit quicker than Prime95.
    Me neither. If I did, it wouldn't be a problem :laugh:

    Don't get the 1090T. Not worth the price. Get the 1055T.

    EDIT: Premature response. Missed a whole page. I see that youy already have it now. I would've gone 1055T and used the money saved to upgrade elsewhere.

    thank you :) i officially use under 200 watts of it but its nice in case i want to u know 5970 crossfire on liquid or something down the road

    also on a serious side not i always buy huge psu's because i change my rigs a ton so if i keep like 1000w+ pus's around they will always power any rig i put them in like that tt 1200w its been in 3 pcs one had 4 4890s so thats why i have the huge psu's

    :rockout:

    + a PSU is usually something that you're gonna keep for a very long time if you're smart imo

    so you might as well get some good stuff to begin with instead of upgrading it all the time:toast:
