    Look up. Look way up.
    That HAF 932 Advanced is a beautiful FATX. Mine's on the casters just beacause it looks sexier that way. You?

    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 :banghead:

    Testing a QX6800 ES :rockout:

    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? :D

    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. :p



    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.

    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 :p 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)

    The older QX chips were multi-clockers, they didn't care for the bus to move much, hense why the multi is unlocked;)

    Talking about the chips is fine as long as you didn't buy or sell it here.
    Those Enzotech heatsinks work beautifully, I used some for additional cooling on a few graphics card I've had.
