The DFI board has no Vga or DVI connector look and see but it has a onboard video card chip, now supposedly you can buy a after market adapter from DFI which is B.S. I normally don't buy MSI boards but this ones a GEM

Umm mine came with a dvi thing. You just plug it into the board and screw it onto the case. Where are you getting it doesn't come with one?

Okay, im starting to OC my 940BE and I was wondering what is a safe voltage for around 3.6Ghz? And do you think I could get it to 4.0GHz without it crashing on air?
Anyone?

well i am at 1.49 for 3.7ghz so around 1.47 should be good
Thanks, do you think I can get it to 4.0Ghz on my air cooler(CM v8) and keep it stable? I have really good air flow in the case so no problems there.

Xigmatek HDT S-1283 ram fitment issues fix

My beloved xigmatek s1283 wont fit because the fins cover the first 2 memory slots. :mad:

So I am stuck with the stock cooler (which I must say is quite nice for a stock cooler)
There is an easy 'fix' to that problem although it will cost you some money. I have the same cooler and had the ram issue that you had. All you need to so is fine low profile ram that will fit just fine under the fins of the mammoth Xigmatek.

I'm currently use Patriot Extreme PC9200 (1150Mhz stock) ram that fits just perfect under those fins so I can use all my slots for ram and the cooler. You can get it in 1066 and 800Mhz flavor as well from newegg because I think the 1150Mhz may be about sold out by now. Also note that this ram runs EXTREMELY cool to the touch even with 2.3v running through it so cooling is not a problem at all. The 1066Mhz and 800Mhz ram both use the same cooler so you're good. I'm buying another kit but of the 1066Mhz flavor so I'll have 6Gigs instead of just 4Gigs, might just buy 8Ghz and be done with it. Don't make a mistake and buy the Vipers because they have the extra riser on them and will not fit. The Extreme's are more than enough and fit anywhere with room to spare. :) For sure the 1066Mhz versions will run well as my 1150Mhz sticks will run at cas4 above 1100Mhz which is already pretty crazy. They run cas3 1T at up to something like 840Mhz or more.

I'm using the stock cooler for my Phenom II 920 right now for the first few days to a week to see how well it works with the stock cooler. So far it's absolutely awesome running super cool at 26C with the stock settings of 2.8Ghz @ 1.344v.

I'm using undervolted settings right now of 2.8Ghz @ 1.200v and it runs 23C during idle and light use and 36C under 100% load stability stress testing of ~7hrs still on the stock cooler with the silent mode selected in the bios. :eek:

Btw, add me to the club!

OK, I have it idle at 3.8 with no problems. I ran a stress test and everything and it is ok. The temps are pretty good, I think it idle's at 36C and under load it gets to 48C, in that area. I tried to get the RAM to OC but I got a BSOD, so I am leaving it at that. But I can play Crysis at Highest settings with no filters and it sits around 32FPS.

Dude I liked pissed my pants when I got it stabled because this is the first time I have OC a CPU, even though I use a program to help. But I'm just glad I have some good hardware now. This is my sole gaming PC now, so I'm loving it. I'm going to keep it like this, since I can run crysis on high then im good.:D

I ended up getting this. It's just as good as the xigmatek, give a c or 2, and it dumps the hot air towards the back of the case instead of at up at the PSU which helps to keep ambient temp low.

This is decent ram that does ddr2 1100 and low profile aswell http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227298
I used to own a set of that and it clocked very very well. I was just telling him about the Patriot Extremes because the OCZ is a bit wider and I'm not sure how well it'd work with whatever board he's using. I also remember the OCZ ram being a slightly tighter fit than the Patriot but I do remember it fitting. :toast:

I really like the look of the new Xigmatek Thor cooler so I may pick that up for my 920 instead of using the Xigmatek I have now. I doubt it'd be a big change between the two but I like the look and I can sell my current one for a good enough price.

Meh, we'll see what happens because I still have to figure out which ram I want to go with so I have a full 6-8Gig that actually matches. :p
