Not mine, all is good [= and ontop of that it reads and writes fine anyway, I did notice though when I turn the music up my sub disconnects the cable. I just wish I know this before I started cloning the disk -.- (what a waste of 2hours worth of power).

Here's my Ghetto mod the fan on my less than 1 yr old HD5770 died:shadedshu so out came an old PSU fan with low start V and low curent draw, replaced the power cable with the one from the HIS fan and away we went



the only good thing to come out of it is Lower temps at load and very quiet at idle

Right now i have a stock gainward on it (not to be confused with the nice reference design with the copper heatpipes) witch is an absulute crap. i get around 93C on HEAVAN 2.0 loops so its kinda scary. im hoping that the S1 will block the temps to 43-45C. yeah... the S1 kicks ass. ATM i am waiting for screws that my friend sent me for this thing, cuz i dont have any.

Hello. I'm new on here.
I read the other ghetto thread,
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55387&page=22
but not this one. (I'm a little drunk, and I need to go to bed!)

I figured this was still the best place to ask about my next build.
GA-MA78LMT-US2H
phenom ii x2 550,
2gb corsiar 1333 ddr3,
heatsink from a junk pentium 4.(its not too bad, copper base, lots of fins)
I blew all my cash on the parts, so I need to find a zero cost cooling method.
Planning to fasten the unknown cooler master heatsink to my phenom with zip ties. Anyone have a better idea? It's only temporary until I find a new pump for my water cooling.

EDIT--- My chair keeps falling apart. Surely that counts as ghetto? :(

That would be a great idea if I had the stock cooler. I expect I won 't, as the guy never mentioned the cooler in the listing.
I bought the cpu from ebay, still waiting on bloody useless delivery company. I know the guy sent it because they tried to deliver it already. Instead of re-delivering like they should, my cpu has vanished. Joy. I supose I will get it eventually, but here begin's a quest that is almost certainly going to cost me money I can't afford. Bugger.
More annoyingly, the rest of the system is sat on my shelf, going out of date, waiting for a cpu.

If there isn't already a thread by you on the same build, start one. The age of the components don't matter;)

another ghetto chipset cooler...



it's a E8400 stock block, i decided that stock chipset cooler was puny so i hacksawed this one and used screws to fit it. it fitted surprisingly clean, there's a low profile 80mm fan on it.

BTW, p35 can really heat it up! :twitch:
