Got the same CPU cooler - very good one!
I haven't posted in a long time, might as well post an updated pic of my micro ATX gaming rig-
I5 3570k @4.6ghz
ASRock Z77 Extreme4-m
EVGA gtx 670
2x Agility 3 SSD raid 0
Seasonic 760w modular PSU
Rosewill Ranger-m case
For a micro setup, it's pretty beast. Plays any game at any settings for me
I think he's only got 1 Graphics card, I think the other is his sound card.
Testing W8 on the old Conroe865
Sorry for crappy inside pic it was taken in progress while I was building it.... (PSU,SSD and stuff was added after I took the pic... )LOL:
Specs in profile
I know its a bit grainy, but here's where I game:
There're so many things right and wrong in that picture
I think you should go retail with a case badge line!
Thanks, but my 7 year old cant legally 'work'. Guess I could trade him food for it...
New goodies!!!! My early birthday present to myself! Happy Birthday to me
EDIT: First time SSD owner here, I am going to hook this bad boy up and reinstall Win7 now.. wish me luck!
Work in progress preview.....
Ooooooo.. so green, so bright! ...yet, I can't look away!
it's greener than the Hulk HULK MAD HULK SMASH
It's a bit cold outside luckily its cold enough for a couple quick runs at 4.8ghz on my Phenom II crazy the improvements on the C3 chips my old C1/C2 chips required DICE for these clocks
I would put my computer outside, or maybe I'd get better temps if it was in an oven? Humidity nearly hit 90% today.
18F right now outside. TEC's coldside registered in at -1C under load
the greener the meener
If it was 18C I would be happy.....
Are FC3 going to sell any retail copies? It's bundled with every bloody item.
WHAT???? Crank that bitch!!! it's cold enough for 1.6v!!!
5.2 or bust !!!!
Heatpipes stoop working when they freeze. I get better temps using a stock non-heatpipe heatsink than anything else. LEt it freeze, get a fan blowing clod air on it, and you're good to go.
I was running my 1100T @ 1.65V, getting -20c load @ around -33c ambient. heatpipe coolers, including the cooler you ghot there, were all worse.
The TEC having a hot side kinda saves that one a bit, fortunately, so it's the odd-ball, but any other...what a failure!
I was at 1.775v for that run. I need to pull some of the ram dimm's out to get any higher. 4 dimms limits my HTT to much to push much further.
The heatpipes are filled with a type of alcohol so it shouldn't freeze until its cold cold out. It's not cold cold out yet load temp on the CPU was 5C according the the sensor on the socket 0C according to the CPU. Was just a quick run to see how far it would get when my CHVF shows up I will have the watercooling running cold. Last time I ran that I hit the coldbug on my socket 754 chips...
I'm surprised you even HAVE snow.
Gonna get colder in the next couple of days, got a review to finish up today, and I'll be doing some clocking in the garage soon. Got quite a few extra AMD chips now, so I can afford to stuff volts into them. I'm kind of interested to see how well the FX-8350 does when cold, too...but I think I might need a newer board to get the most out of it.
It's actually our second snow this season...abnormally warm this year TBH. Two years ago it was -30F outside this time of year.
I can't imagine your CHVF will have issues clocking it up.
That's awesome! I took my first water rig out on a 10F day, let it cool down... just a little too long. Liquid partially froze, and ruined one of the redundant pumps. File that one under stupid.
