    I kept mine at 60% fan because otherwise it was too loud :eek:

    Should do a bit over 4k each :)

    The X6 has a 110CFM Scythe at full blast for the HS, one on the side at full blast, that makes two totaling a pretty loud and heavy flowing 220CFM. Then I have a kinda loud fan blowing on the NB and first vid card.

    My i7 has another two of the 110CFM'ers on the HS, one blowing on the 8800's and one on the RAM. Don't think the cards at 100% would bother me at all :laugh:
    :respect: That's just awesome sir :respect:

    I can't stand that much noise, I run the fans on the H50 at full speed, but they're quiet fans. And the GTX260 always has to stay below 65%

    Thanks! I want to do the same thing with the old Celeron-M chip I've got in my sale thread, but I'd have to pry the metal block off and shave off the pins first :( Too much work.

    They look pretty nice. Have you tried doing any gaming on the GTS pair?

    I am one of those people that is used to sleeping with a fan on or something. I actually like the noise. I do plan in the future to put all rigs in a case with some quiet fans to quite down the room a bit. However with that many things running, it won't be too quiet, just quieter.

    That'll be awesome, makes me want to do it, I have some Lap top memory laying around here as well :D
    Naw dude, no games installed on that rig. What I will do eventually is have a little bench session with them. But these are mainly here just to fold bro, you know i don't deal much with Nvidia :laugh: Just that ATI sucks big balls when it comes to folding.

    not when you strip it down and slap a block on it..... warranty void.(also i sold the heat sink) my EK block took a turn for the worse and pretty much leaked all round the acrylic seal. I'm lucky it didn't take out my Crosshair IV tbh

    Often those HSF have some sort of sticker to indicate if it has been removed :(

    yes expensive mistake to make but a learning experience none the less o_O buggar shoulda hung onto the old HSF

    @laurijan I've yet to see an security sticker on an important part that stopped removal yet except from the likes of HP and such my own warranty void if sticker removed sticker is in the daftest place it doesn't cover anything except a small piece of PCB which has nothing under it

    I should point out that slight sag should be left alone, the cause I believe is that since the base isn't flat and since it's held down in the middle it's going to tilt one direction or the other slightly. Forcing it straight up actually increased temps by 2-8 degrees across all cores.

    We used to do this at EIT cept out of old AMD 586 and pentium 133's I think I gave my last one away last year to a cousin who thought it was cool it was an old Duron 900 some 2 part epoxy resin to cover the pins and to stop the chip from cracking when drilled used to work a treat

    Finally got the Koolance waterblocks I have been waiting on. Also bought a Swiftech 2x120 rad (the one behind the tech station) and decided to go with the black Feser tubing:
