Loving that A900....and that's exactly what I did with my GeminII for the first while
Assuming it works on LGA1156, I would be very tempted to trade you my H50
Thanks matey =) am glad u like it
Well i moved from one country to another....couldnt take all of the staff with me...so i had this Gemin II only the Heatsink...i had to improvise tbh it cools ok...but i miss 2x fan so much...if anyone have Fan Holder for gemin II or Mesh Mask for antec (need2) feel free to PM. i would like to buy its offtopic i know...i gotta make WTB topic soon
The block is a AM3 block but danger den might have the mounting brackets for 1156.
they have a replacement top for it. Cost $11+shipping
that is if i have the right top.take a 2nd look before you buy
Yea the block i have is the TDX AM2, he would need that top to mount but 10$ isnt bad for a 50$ block for the 1156
LOL, most of the PC's here have blue leds. Must be something about LED's that I don't get...
My PC is 95% red LED/cathode and the last 5$ is a 140mm blue LED. its nice i believe
loving it bud, nice clean and simple
its just the default/most common LED color.
my case has blue LED's in the front, cause it came with it... but it also has an off button for it
i actually dont like LED's at all... PC's, like children, should be seen and not heard... and if possible, not seen at all.
i used to have all red led's. now i have no LED's on anything other then the spot cool. Once i get the NB watercooled i will have no LED's at all
same i never really like LED's but if i ahve to choose i pick blue easier on the eye
I took this off the front of my Mega Shadow only. Fan at full blast was 73ºc load, now fan at slowest speed its 62-63ºc load
that was in need of a cleaning for sure i pulled more then that off of my xiggy when i took the x2 4200+ out to put the 250 (and took the 250 out and cleaned it off it's in the mail going to you now )
Dude the mobo is whitish I have to give them thorough cleaning but at least the heatsink is not clogged up. Temps dropped ridiculously low now! fan is like at 500RPM's
i bet it's easier on the ears.
what is a good way to clean the boards? my black board isn't so black anymore and i am going to have to clean it when i get the WCing parts(since the loop is off and out of the case it will be easier)
A can of compressed air is a good way to do it and for stubborn shit cotton buds and Isopropyl
am so happy that my RV02 comes with filters on the bottom fans i can just imagine how much cat fluff and other dust 3x 180mm fans pushin 300cfm would suck into my case
sheesh where's the PC sit down on a carpeted floor or has it just been a long while since you last did the dusting inside it
I agree. I hate LEDs and Cathodes.
About a month I don't dust it.
me too, i used to love that shit, but now that im older i just want a nice clean rig without too much lights and bling bling
in response to many people above, i want to share an observation on the 'evolution' of a techie that i noticed some time ago.
stage 1: ignorance
stage 2: learns to tweak in-program settings
stage 3: learns about drivers/general OS tweaks
stage 4: starts to modify OS settings
stage 5: learns basic BIOS stuff
stage 6: starts phsically modding hardware - be it coolers, fans, or LED stuff - looks come first, then aesthetics.
stage 7: aesthetics kick in. the LED lights and noisy fans go away, and a more simple appearance is chosen.
stage 8: an overall purpose is deemed for each system, and everything is dedicated to that purpose. un-neccesary hardware (and software?) is removed.
stage 9: ????
stage 10: profit!
this was more or less a patter i observed in many of my LANner friends, but i'm sure you'll all have seen similar trends. most of us are at stage 7/8
^^ what he said im at 8 or above
Still cant lose them since i dont WC
stage 8: you decide you want to either:
- cool the system like a maniac
- light the bitch up like a disco show, or
- make a (near) silent machine
Stage 9 is going anal with stage 8
