    Copper or Aluminum

    Copper fins has better egress, but are less light-weight. Although a smaller copper heatsink at larger weight and higher price performs slightly better then a huuuge, lightweight aluminium one for less money. If you don't have too much spare space, you definately need copper. ;)

    Another PSU Question

    600W PSU?! Jeez, what are you hiding back there, 20 HDD drives?? Never seen a rig that needed more than 300W... Sheesh...

    I've got $165 and need an AGP video card

    Well, I think the HIS X1650XT would swallow the Sapphire X800GTO as is...

    I've got $165 and need an AGP video card

    6800GT or X1950? X1950 for sure. As for ATi, I would only recommend X1650 and X1950 series. Or nVidia with DDR3 over 7600GS. Just to ease... (from worse to best) 7600GT X1650XT 7800GT 7900GT X1950XT So now only the budget counts. Edit: Goddamn blind me! Didn't see you were...

    X1650XT is pretty cool (and cheap)... ;)

    PSU approval labels!!

    Nope. No overclocking as for me... :ohwell:

    PSU approval labels!!

    FSP 400w is cheap, Enermax 400w is expensive. How much do you want to spend on it? :D BTW IMHO FSP 350w got all the headroom you need. Edit: ANY kind of quality label is bullshit that every crap PSU has. BTW it only means that the product will not shock you to death... ...when...

    Heatpipe & passive cooling fan club

    Yes, intake and exhaust fans are needed and used at moment. Passive coolers warm up faster than their heat could be exhausted when system is on (full) load. :( Right now I'm doing that. Eg. ammonia could be easily accessed. :D

    System reboots when DVD accessed

    I would suspect the PSU cable or the molex plug it's using. Maybe the data cable...

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Yeah, there's both CL4 and CL5 kits. Maybe you should look at the TwinX Dominator PC6400 KITs. 100% CL4. :cool:
  18. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Hey, TwinX PC6400 is CL4, 800MHz. ;)
  19. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    I think you should go TwinX PC6400 about Corsair. Maybe the 5000+ would be more suitable, just for matching the FSB...

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    So yeah, you need a new mobo CPU and some RAM... JUDAS3: Oh, and BTW I see your CPU's running @ 2,4MHz. Hardcore downclocking, I must say... lol
  21. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Well 8533 points in 3DMark06? Shame, that an X7950XT beats that! As for me, I'm on top of the list of 7600GT's, I even top a few 7800GT's running @ retail with the whole rig cooled by passive cooling!!! Try to beat this, DX10-man...
  22. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Bean?! Hell no. It's worth more than your rig, dude. Oh, and it's a 360w PSU. Still don't know why you need a ~600w PSU for a 250w-eating rig... Duh... BTW 3DMark06 is a crap. Getting different scores with different platforms or different OS's. That's for the you-kind-of-ppl, m8...
  23. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Roflmao @ Judas3 270 fps what? I'm getting 500 fps in Quake3 maxed out with no overclock. ...and that's because 500 fps is the maximum refresh rate the engine could handle... lol
  24. Rhino666

    GeForce 8800GTS terrible performance?

    Well, depending to what a piece-of-crap CPU the p4 is and what a catch-up the c2d means, I'm not surprised...

    Voltage out of range? Asus PC Probe

    Guess what, it could be a software malfunction. I don't think the rig would be moving with such crappy voltage. Besides, processors eat 12v, so the CPU update shouldn't cause such a problem even if the PSU sucks.
