    TIM is Behind Ivy Bridge Temperatures After All

    How "smart" is this chip anyway? Thermal paste anyone? how about some grey poupon. Well I do hope they come out with a revision, in a few months. I would like an Ivy bridge chip, and future overclockability is pretty important to me ! :)

    BitFenix Prodigy

    I wonder if a 240mm rad would fit in the front, while keeping the optical bay? It looks tight up top, but that would solve the problem of most likely losing the optical drive with a 240mm rad.

    BitFenix Prodigy

    Just what I wished for years ago. ofcourse we would like it to be even a little smaller but theres a limit to that ofcourse. I would love to use this case for my nexted build without a doubt. Full featured and rich, a do it all :rockout::rockout::rockout: Thank you for the nice review...

    First Loop Build

    Whichever you go with you will be happy in the end. Seems the Ex Rad is in popularity. Even if you spend a little over $200, which I think your willing to do, it may give you the best bang for your buck.. since you are doing a custom loop this is stuff you can use for years. I would recommend...

    Aware me on the new graphics cards and why it may be worth it to purchase one.

    I have almost the same HW as you, Q6600 4GB 5850. I finally installed my water-block for my gpu but thats only because I've had it laying around for so long and did a water change/cleaning. Really a 5850 is a great card. I dont think in your case you need to upgrade quite yet. If you do maybe...

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Yeah man Sasqui, c2d was a huge bump overall in central processor performance. nv8800 series and than ati's 5800 series plus were the nexted best bump in graphics (well thats when I cut back on upgrading). Amazing Ive had a similar system for 5years and it still competes really well, in gaming...

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Yes I did and its still in the box. Looks lkke I prob wont be selling my system as a whole after all. I can still try to post it locally I guess. I was thinking I shd be able to get a grand if someones interested in a "cool" looking PC. I dont really game much at all anymore.

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Im actually going to go with another 5850 trough a tpu member Frogger. It will be the blue pcb but theres a volt mod for that one I seen online. Some comparisons Ive read said that the texture detail is a bit lower on the 6950 and gets bumped back up for the 7850 (24nm). I'd say they all...

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Thanks all for the advice I have yet to decide on what Im going to do. Brand new GPU block, top rad and pump I had stashed away installed :P Heres how it was looking:

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Would the 6950 be much better, or around the same as a 5850 ? I already have a 5800series waterblock. Who knows I may just part out the rig. I was thinking of trying to sell the thing as a whole locally. Im in Canada too othewise that would be a good deal! :)

    Good Gpu for Q6600 3.4Ghz

    Looks like my Ati 5850 is dead now The bios wont post on screen, my mobo does not have onboard graphics. What would be a good GPU to upgrade to ? I would like one, preferably with a black pcb. I think I may liquid cool it too but am not sure. Anyone have an idea on my best bet? Budget is...

    Lga 775 Mobo hard to come by?

    My stupidity! I had tried an different gpu cable from my old psu lol 6pin.. guess the psu didnt like that :banghead::slap: lmao well I better feed this thing the coolant. I actually like how I didnt have any build up on the blocks from my last coolant.. it was in there for 2 years, block was...

    Lga 775 Mobo hard to come by?

    I cant find any good ones other than m-atx and an intel board for sale online ? I think my mobo died while I was away on vacation. Jumping the power button does not work. Powers connected properly and the mobo light is on.

    Different Loop

    a bummer, I tried to turn on the system to start moving the coolant.. I think my mobo was friend along with my psu. When I came back from winter away (had left pc plugged in to the back-up power supply), the pc would not turn on.. psu light would not turn on.. now the mobo light turns on but the...

    Different Loop

    Cheers I think so too. so easy to do the second time around. I should of put a 360mm rad up top and sealed it off, would have gone a little bit into the drive bay though.

    Different Loop

    Heh, I cut the clear hose down a bit, looks better too. It looked worst in this picture than in person. even a little bit trimmed off makes a big difference in length.. and the difference of to fit or not to fit. Good Day fellow Tpu'rs Im wondering if you think the hosing is alright. I used...

    Re-Building my Watercooled SS Temjin TJ09

    Both nice set-ups Alex, I had the same idea as your first when I was planning my loops years ago. Someone said the water should reach the cpu first since that is the most important usually. Minor differences Im sure. Well Imma happily be capable of overclocking the gpu if I feel like it. Never...
