    Chassis Cooling Discussion

    OK, I wanted to start a discussion about MY chassis cooling. See system specs for those of you who don't know me :shadedshu Anyway, I'm dealing with this case: With a LC system. The case is really limited with which radiators I could use. I was stuck with 2x80mm :banghead: (which is...

    What Cooler for HD 2900PRO?

    Really the only one I can confirm as fitting is the Thermalright HR-03 Plus And even the neweggg listing says 8800gtx only, but the press release says HD2900XT... Do the Zalaman's fit on the HD2900's? I'd like to go with the VF-900, but don't want to buy it if it doesn't fit :banghead...

    45C for FX-62 Idle Temp?

    Is 45C too high for an FX-62 @ idle? It has a 92mm Scythe and should be drawing in fresh air through the cpu vent in his case. The only catch right now is that he has no exhaust fan connected (no side fan either, just the CPU vent) and a 120mm intake. He says he applied his paste by...

    P5K-VM & Vanilla Vdroop Pencil Mod

    I haven't seen much of this around these forums, thanks to http://forum.insanelymac.com, and www.insanelymac.com. First off, this is NOT the same mod as the P5K deluxe! The layout is slightly different. I also read the deluxe doesn't even need a vdroop mod b/c it has a voltage damper...

    Highest Safe Voltage for Dominators?

    What do ya'll suppose is the highest voltage for a pair of D9 Dominator 1066 stix? (Pretty sure they are D9's, bought them 10/06 when they were all D9's) Rated at 2.2, and I cap out around 1180 at 2.2v wanted to see if I could push past 1200 with a voltage bump. This all stems from...

    PCI-E Frequency Limiting Overclock?

    OK this is the strangest thing i've seen by far... @ 410 fsb and 104 PCI-E, my system won't even POST. At the same fsb and 105 PCI-E, I'm in windows and stable. Its the ONLY thing I changed :wtf: Anything lower than 105 and it won't POST. I'll try going up to 110 on the pci-e (in...

    Should I RMA a bad overclocking mobo?

    Should I RMA my P5K because it only reaches 404 fsb (hard wall)...not to mention the nearly .1 vdroop? (supposed to hit ~500fsb) I'm not asking if it is ethical/right/wrong/etc. I know the answers to those. Its newegg btw, and I have 2 days left in which to return it (i'd have to go...

    Ahhh!! Cap Fell Off Gfx

    Ok, well, it didn't just 'fall' off, apparently it got caught around a sata cable and ripped off the video card. I know its a cap, I think its 100uF, but am not sure. I can post a pic, but not sure what that will do. Its the very bottom right cap on a 7800GT. The cap is marked: BH 100...
