video card is still having issues it decided to work fine on first boot for about 2 minutes then promptly artifacted into a black screen.... will have to take apart some stuff and look at it again
It seems like this is the right place to post them? Dedicated thread or something like that?
Arrakis+9 - Great watercooling setup. Way to complicated for me, but it looks great..
Your cable management is brilliant, my case right now looks like a giant spaghetti ball T_T
Aren't you supposed to use the red RAM slots when you only have two DIMMs?
Yes, yes you are.
Arrakis, you could probably get those Sammy's to 2400 if you put them in the red slots...
It's probably also the source of instability.
Many times, installing DIMMs into the other slots results in no boot at least that's the case in my testing.
I like tha barbs... Monsoon ?
I believe he also has the flow of his CPU block backwards...
Well everything worked for 5 minutes or so got into the OS and installed the video drivers shortly after the system shorted and turned off could not get it back up and running - even yanked it out of the case and benched it with the stock cooler and nothing else hooked up to see if i could get it into the bios. still nothing so i yanked out my trusty intel board and loaded up the processor and ram on that it will boot just fine but no video at all. so being broke and not able to buy anything to fix it its going to have to go in the corrner of my closet for now and no more gaming sadly
did you leak test before installing everything else
that sucks that something shorted out
I think it has to do with his video card with a bad capacitor.
Looking at your setup im not a specialist but maybe the videocard got shorted from the cooler. That could explain you had problems with it. Then tremove everything and put it on air cooling only. Test your psu..does it work ?Seems like a blown video card.
Actually i went and tested everything out, seems i blew up the processor don't even know how that is remotely possible seeing as how everything else works just fine. really makes me wish i hadn't lapped the damn thing but it ran soooo hot before i did it. so im back were i started using an old netburst processor with 768mb of ram on xp home wooo! its so fast :shadedshu
did you try using the on die video and switching the ram???
Mobo is a pain the the A$$!
as my gpu screams I CAN'T BEATHE
it looks kinda ghetto solution
My build is getting closed to finished
Maybe a bigger case??
My Danger Den DD cases are too small for me !! :lol:
This one was not easy to build in but it's been really rewarding!
I look forward to my next build... I'm wondering about doing away with the water cooling side of things and perhaps just getting a chiller instead... Might be able to use a smaller case then
Got tired of the 22"...
