i think so but i wont say for shure ill let him answer
OH YEAH! It was like marklebb or something.
Yes I have been markkleb on all the forums. I figured this year its about time to stop goofing off.
I have had mkmods .com for a long time and never did anything with it.
When I started this mod I checked the temps here they were after I played TF2 for about 20 min (with a junk stock type alum CPU cooler)
I just finished 30min in TF2 and look at the diff (using the painted AC Freezer)
One thing to notice is in the first temps I was using my 8600GTs in SLI and my second one is the 8800GT..what a difference.
I will be swapping the FX62 for my X2 6400 and lapping it to see if it gets better.
damn, you got some mad airflow now!!! that's a huge difference!
Its gonna get a LOT better. I will tune the airflow, Lap the CPU and coolers. Definately gonna put a Thermalright on the Chipset and experiment with some different TIMs...
Oh yea look at the front
Definitely gonna have to be modded for better flow.
And just a note for you Intel guys, this is a 125watt AMD..I bet the 65watt Intels would run even cooler.
overclock it and join the comp...
this weekend I am gonna make ur cooler, next week I will mess with this...
I just goof off with OCing so those of you who know what is better? I have a FX 62 and a X2 6400, which should I use? And Lap the surface or remove the IHS?
And for TIM (paste), AS 5 or?
I want to throw on the Thermalright Hr 05 as well.
Don't try to delid a 6400 or 6000+, trust me. lol http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=41746
Anyway, use the 6400. Generally clocks higher. Even the bad ones usually hit 3.4Ghz at around 1.5V. That's what mine did, and it ran nice and cool on a lapped AC F64Pro. 55C max load, and 24/7 stable.
As far as TIM, you can't go wrong with the tried and true as5, there's also MX-2 and Ceramique which perform great.
Thanks for the heads up..
Thanks Shinobi, you should see it in person, bring ur case over and il hook you up.
Had to register to post and say sorry to hear about what ever happend over at OCN. I can't see the worklog yet because I'm at work and its blocked, but I can't wait to get home and check out the latest pics.
I'll edit when I get home, and keep up the good work
Thanks for stopping by Dunc4n. I am lapping the X2 6400 and will be popping it in in a few.
Wow, man makes me want to tear apart, and start over. Amazing work
Thanks Dunc4n..and welcome to TPU, keep tuned as there will be quite a few upgrades soon...
[like a corsair 520(thanks to spacegoast), another 8800GT and the TForce 590mobo, some side window action, lighting and maybe a face done like my UltraBlue mod with a touch of Carbonfiber thrown in]
(and dont tell anyone but there will be a bit of soldering wires to the mobo too)
AMAZING mod! If wish my tower looked just half as good as this one will turn out to be. I was going to atleast paint my case, but I hate removing all the components and stuff... I'll have to upload pix of my tower sometime so it can get a 1/10 vote, lmao.
while you have it empty before you paint it, mod the fan mounts for better breathing...
I was posting a spam in wtf8269's case thread and it came to me. For the rebuild of this mod I will use my PC power & Cooling 510 (I bought a Corsair 520, oh well).
My 510 has been modded a bunch of times in my SFF cases so its pretty butchered up.
I think what I will do is make a new CarbonFiber case for the PS with the wiring sticking out the back of the mobo side and instead of 1 80mm exhaust fan I will put a pair of AC8s blowing through it.
Il post up some picts this week when I get some time.
Heya MK, Just got back from a "vacation". DSL was down.
After looking at everything you really have done a great job and hopefully will see some more work from you.
Keep up the awesome work!
This is the greatest mod I have ever seen.
My case love you long time...
Sucky, sucky, five dolla?
I'm impatient and love worklogs... how's the progress going?
I am just finishing up a new memory cooler for fitseries3 and once its done il break out the PS and the Carbon fiber..
feel free to post some pics of my cooler if you want. it looks great BTW!
I think it would look better on your mobo, on my mobo it looks out of place (my memory is in different location)
LOL, it does look kind of different...
(I love looking at this pict)
^^ SWEET^^ What's the plan to mount it on the Formula
