    Hopefully I will only have to wait until Friday. Newegg likes to take their sweet ass time. But at least the prices are good.

    Here is my Athlon II X2 250 up and running. Do these things run cool? Default clocks/voltages it's running peak 33ºc on a passive Mega :eek: Full load!

    passive always heats up over time, do what you can to get some slow airflow over it and you'll lower the peak value a ton.

    even something like a slow 70mm fan can make a very big difference.

    Interesting umm can i ask why your PSU is in backwards if it's just for the LED lighting then grab one of these Silverstone FN181 LED fans

    [​IMG]

    then you can turn that PSU around and get some cool air flowing through it

    Well the side of the tech bench has that Antec Tri Cool 120mm, it's blowing towards the board and base of cooler so it' keeps some air moving. Right now load is 28ºc.
    Yep, but not in use at the moment.

    You'll love the RV02 it's the same case I have and as Scam has aswell :toast: just one small thing though those FN181 fans aren't speed switched like the ones that come with the case they sit on 700rpm constantly

    hmmm maybe if you put the fan up so it's not attached at an angle you might get a little more airflow or attach an gentle typhoon fan to the HSF or a similarly quiet 120mm fan

    well it's designed to be at an angle to blow across the HDD which is on a rack right below the mobo this way both HDD and mobo get air. It's running super cool though, no need for even a quiet fan. I'll see what's up during the day tomorrow though.

    shame you don't live near NZ I'd throw one of the 180mm silverstone RV02 case fans at ya to use it can be switched between 700 and 1000 rpm

    Sounds normal to me. I had my X3 435 with 1.4v on core and cpu-nb and under my D14 never got over 40C full load for hours running P95 in a 590. This was with only the middle fan being the 140mm with the LNA added. Adding the front 120mm didn't make any difference. At idle, the temperature was the same as the motherboard temperature sensor even with the extra volts. :laugh:

    I wish I would have ran it passive just to see if the 140mm made any difference. With two 140mm on top and the 120mm exhaust on the 590, I'm sure there would be enough airflow to not even need fans on the heatsink.

    oh and at 3.3GHz with 1.4v under an Tuniq Tower 120 and an coolermaster R4 fan my one (Athlon x2 7750) only gets upto 54c load and 34 idle

    Apparently this thing does run cool. Reset the max before going to bed, max was 30ºc.

    A while ago my 5770 had major issues from running the ram maxed out with crappy lil zalman heatsinks on the back ram ( seems the sticky stuff on them was more insulative ( spelling? is this even a word?) then conductive!)

    After going back to stock clocks it fixed it, but I missed having both sliders in catalyst maxed out so done this

    [​IMG]

    Looks like arse but works great, the heatsinks are stuck down using silicon thermal paste rather than double sided thermal tape, works much nicer : ]

    The big heatsink at the back of the card ( well bigger) is on two mosfets which I assume control the ram ( *shrugs*)

    Also note the rubber band around the silenx fan, me and my friend had to make clips out of paper clips to fit the 38mm fan to my heatsink XD rubber band adds tension to the clips to stop them coming off.



    Edit :

    So that's my 5770 @ 960/1445(5800mhz) ^_^

    Can do 1ghz core but difference is negligible, when I crap some copper heat-sinks I might try to get the ram to 6000mhz ^_^

    You know it :p

    I love ghetto modding things, this will be going on the mosfets of the card soon, just needs a few more adjustments : ]
