Mandatory rant: where is episode 3?
This heatsink is brilliant, i had to overclock it just to get the fan to spin up
I done a little side panel mod on my 902.
lol the fan should spin anyway - if it doesn't it's broken!
Oooohhh... got any pics? Or do you mean mod like you just accidentally smashed the f*ck out of it?
In the bin.
you know what i mean
the motherboard starts the fan at 1200 (Because i told it to in the bios)
It only starts to spin the fan up to full RPM once the tempreture exceeds 48c
Lol. Need dinner advice peeps, I have a packet of beef mince and what should I do with it?
1. Pasta, ez
2. Meatballs, meatballs are awesum
3. Burger, why not?
4. your choice
Burger sounds nice and if you put some chilli's in them...
overall i think i choose Number D: The lasagne
Actually, I didn't I thought you were being literal.
I unscrewed one of the clear panels out of the side panel, used a little velcro tape on the inside and just coverd the gap with a black dust filter.
I couldnt attach a fan on the side panel anyway as the Kuhler was getting in the way of the clips that hold the fan in.
so the best thing to do was to take part of the clear perspex off and put a washable dustfilter there.
nothing major. If i had a dremel i would have done a complete side panel mod. but this is good for now.
got a lot more airflow inside the case. and i can feel the 200mm fan pulling air into the case where as i previously couldnt
No lasagne sheets, but I have chilli, so burger it is!
best food in the world by miles.
I dont care what anyone says. I love lasagne
you've spent too much time using laptops obviously
With this new Heatsink i can run at really low volts
i'm now running prime 95 3.4GHZ, at 1.28V
Now all i need is a board with proper power cucuity (this things rated 95W max) so i'm pushing it using a 125W proccesor as it is
Someone tell me when i can get a decent AM3+ board for around £50
Lasagne is buff, but I prefer a spaghetti bolognese mm mmmmm
Laptops? Have I? How did you deduce that?
I don't do laptops. I just fix them.
I've never seen a desktop PC where the fans don't move at all, there are a lot of laptops like that, most new one's even have a 'passive' cooling mode where they just vary the proccesor speed in the power options menu
that said most Core I laptops only hit about 60'c on passive modes so it normally doesn't end up throttling at all
If you come across any good 4GB DDR3 1600mhz modules for laptops. let me know
don't bother with 1600mhz, just get 1333mhz and call it a day unless you've somehow got some sort of quad core on that netbook your buying
If it's a core I seres (now i sound like an intel advertiser) you don't even need the modules to be identical for dual channel to work
Ach, I see what you mean noo
There's a guy on TPU in US that's got some for sale. I'll look into it and handle it if you're not comfy buying from US?
I was refering to a matching 8Gb set, but yeah, I'll have a poke
Damn, it's 1333. BNIB 8GB matching kit though.
why does it really need to be 1600, it barely makes a difference in a desktop, so why will a laptop mind?
£24 before postage is too good to miss
T'is bloody cheap. Laptop RAM's usually a bit more than desktop too. G-skill also give lifetime warranty on their laptop RAM (not all company's do lifetime on lappy RAM)
guys, now whilst doing extended stress testing at 3.5ghz+, the clockspeed will occasionally lower itself for a while
Do you guys think it's because i'm trying to push to much power through a motherboard with what i think has 4 (or 4+1) stage VRM's?
CnQ or chokes on the vrm's err choking..
got a heatsink on your vregs?
if its the mobo in your specs then i'd get ramsinks on there quicksmart or ofcourse drop the OC and preserve lifespan of components
