After my summer upgrade last week
Those fans are looking nice. Sucks there getting way to popular for me. I tend to steer away from popularity. I like to beat on my own drum.
The sound of many drums together is far more impressive.
lol. I tend to beat on them like animal (muppets if you don't know) when he goes crazy.
It is almost impossible to steer away from Popularity. Its everywhere in everything.
I think I was the first person on TPU to have these corsair fans in my system. Because I got the fans that are on the case close to a week after they launched. And they are the best fans I have ever had, amazing for undervolting.
I'm waiting for reviews on them. I do like them and I keep hearing bout good static pressure from them when used on a rad. Even though I know nothing of S P and what it is. I am keeping my eyes out on them though. By chance do they have led wholes on them to mod?
no and thats one of the reasons I got them. NO tacky ass LEDs
Many nice shots Silver27. Thanks.
Would you mind filling in your System Specs?
You willl need to clean it a lot since you are a smoker @Silver27
That HAF 932 Advanced is a beautiful FATX. Mine's on the casters just beacause it looks sexier that way. You?
Or deal with the high temps like so...
if your getting high temps then I'd say clean your PC that thing is filthy
you know? I'm in some need of blue fans but the thing that irks me is that it seems that nobody makes them in all the sizes. I wanted to use some Prolimatechs but they only come in 140mm and 120mm and I also need a pair of 92s. Deepcool does have all the sizes I need but then they make the frame white
Testing a QX6800 ES
What the frack people have done to that poor processor! What kind of monster abuses good hardware
It's just the IHS, a good lapping and you'll never know it looked like that.
If I saw an Extreme edition ES chip with an IHS that scratched, I'd still buy it.
Though I do agree, you'd have to be a monster to do something like that.
ES chips have zero monetary value, so why not use it and abuse it? Heck, I'm pumping 1.45 V through my 3960X ES 24/7.
Do you also hit it with a hammer in between the OC sessions?
Talking about physical abuse really. 1.45V isn't even that much if you got the right cooling.
I don't have the right cooling. USing an H100.
I've seen many a CPU look just like that after many LN2 sessions. LN2 pots are heavy(really heavy!!!), and easily marr the surface of a chip.
How so? I purchased one (along with a mobo & GPU) from a forum member
I know I know
I've been trying to get round to.
Sure they're heavy, but the mounting surfaces are still flat and their users (should) still take care when mounting them. It looks like someone used concrete for TIM on that chip.
And yes, I was specifically talking about physical abuse.
You shouldn't talk about that. Buying and selling of ES chips is against the rules here at TPU.
Didn't know that... still I didn't get it on the forum so I'm clean I guess but couldn't pass it up. The chip seems to be a dissapointment though, can't boot above 270x12 although it could also be my board. Sadly I don't have any other 775 board left.
I'll see if re-capping does anything (the board is from 2006); I was already thinking about doing that anyway and also add some VRM cooling (these Enzotech heatsinks look fine: http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos-c1.htm)
