    Mah shitteh HTPC

    Made a few changes recently; new ROM, new cooler and replaced the stock Antec tricools that were LOUD as all hell! Went from a VenomousX to the d-14 and added a Bitfenix Spectre Pro 140 and my old adj Scythe 120 in place of those Antec stocker's. Also pulled the heatpipe off the mobo and gave it a REALLY good cleaning since i had it out and applied fresh tim to the NB/SB. Temp's are about the same but SO much quiter now, almost silent! :D

    Not quite sure how to go about this; is there software for this? Or would I need to get some sort of IR thermometer?

    They are still fairly gold once in the case, but they do have grey writing printed on the top, which does dampen the effect. If only my RAM heatsinks were gold....

    Here is a picture:

    As you can see, the board has brown traces; inserted in the case, it gives the board a black/bronze look ('Spose it's no different to your current? EVGA P55 board).

    EDIT: My phone camera really doesn't do it justice...

    I was looking at picking this up but was unsure because not many reviews, what are your thoughts about it?

    if you compare to noctua NH-D14 temp, it has the same level
    i guess this cooler should have more power (except the weight that more than 1300 grams), it has dual fans and 8 heat pipes, maybe little bit lapping and faster fans could make it brighter :toast:

    Only one is Sapphire. ;)

    Should be three, but had to send one in for "repair". It's not the same type of 6950 though, which is kind of a bummer.


    I know the third is repairable, but I asked for a "refernce" model to match these two anyway, should they not be able to "fix" the one I sent in. They said they would see what they could do, so I got my fingers crossed, but really I expect my old third card back.

    Pardon the average cable management. :p

    Also the 1200W PSU was his idea not mine, he wanted one of the best.

    And my long lost friend I found
