    Using HD Tune (or was it HD Tach?) It averages 134mbps. It's a really nice SSD for the price, though it looks like they upped the price on them a bit. I've seen them for 89.99 at newegg before...

    The GTZ should be plenty sufficient for your CPU, I dont see the heatkiller improving much at all. Have you reinstalled it and all that?
     
    Chicken Patty and computertechy say thanks.

    yep, ive been working with binge for hour's

    it isnt sucking heat from my cpu at all as all my rads and coolant are cold when its high
    ive tried re-thermaling, different thermal paste and everything. still the same. plenty of flow because my res is swirling all the time, fans on full( the yate loon 88cfm ones) push and pull:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    if it isnt the block its my cpu!

    im not the first to have problem's with this block anyway

    Looking at some of the rigs in this thread , it feels like i am in some sort of science class or something. You got tubes going into your tower, or coming out of it, and from what it looks like, blocks of ice in your tower. I can see now, you guys are very serious about computers. No wonder i catch alot of heat haha. You have to keep in mind, i didn't even know what a video card was until late 2005

    Amazing to look at tho and lovely cases. :)

    It does, mostly post windows logo. Things like the virus scanner and anything else associated with startup, start instantly! What I like is that things like web pages load much faster (instant), and things like saving loading games is much quicker! Best of all no noise. :)
