    Steam download servers must be getting really hammered. I am trying to get Metro 2033 as I just entered the CD key for it into steam but I'm getting 100k/s and 8 hours remaining lol. I guess world+dog is downloading TF2.

    Can't say i blame them though now that it is free. If by some slim chance you haven't tried TF2 then now it's free you have no excuse, grab it now!

    I guess my years spent playing Team Fortress mod for Quakeworld have swayed me in it's favour. It's much better then it used to be, and it used to be one of the best ways to play quake online. IMHO :)

    i'm currently putting hours in BC2, tried to convinced some people it was better then HALO today, didn't end well (these people have xbox's and won't believe me when i tell them ps3 and pc are better and cheaper so they don't really know to much anyway)

    There is some training levels and stuff now apparently but cheesy is correct, no single player really.

    kieran,its not a fake,the bottom right of the screeny and the cpu meter gadget thingy show cpu/gpu 2 temps,i was using a chiller at the time,so load temps were -6c cpu (says na on the coretemp but reads fine in bios?!?)...
    so y6ea that 20 odd celcius reading was after a couple of hours of gaming with the chiller turned off,just melting the antifreeze..
    the cpu-z is an odd one tho as i use CnQ so its should be 1.504v on load and god knows what at 268x4,so i assume its the pic taken when on the cusp of dropping down a p state..
    i dont really know but what i do know is that using a chiller enabled some nice OC's while the computer is silent(silent 470s=priceless),but i got condensation under the mobo vrm sink..
    dragon skin fx next time!

    sorry this waffle took so long i got distracted

    Its cool, i never said it was fake i just wondered how you did that. Yes i remember you wanted to change a thermistor on your chiller to get it to go lower. I dont think we could quiet work out the values needed, see im not good with electronics.

    Yes,good memory!
    In the end i added a link wire,so i basically short circuited the temp cutoff,
    and the temps dropped ridiculously but like i said,i didnt insulate the mobo enough so i lost a good OCcer for my sins,
    never mind...the mobo only cost a score a couple of years ago :)

    What volts you putting through your 2500k man? I find 4.5ghz is easy @ 1.32v anything higher and I need to raise the vcore significantly and tweak other things such as PLL voltage etc
