You'd recommend them? I've seen nothing but happy customers so far.
Yes i would They are nice for when you need a fan in a awkward place
that didn't sound right
@Ion It keeps the chipset and mosfet area cool on my overclocked i7 so i would think they would be decent for what you need.Could you link me to your board? I may have some easy ideas of things to do to cool your mosfets
So I tried adding a 2gb and 1gb stick of RAM to my P55 Cruncher like I had mentioned earlier and it did not work out right for me
@ Stock it would see all 7GB of RAM, but with my current OC the board would s a brick. I dont have the time to tweak my voltages or anything and it may just be because this board does not like having all four slots populated, but either way I am sticking with 4gb for now.
Maybe when the summer weather forces me to kill my OC I will try it again
Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H. I have a long aluminum HSF that my uncle gave me (not sure where he got it) that would be perfect, it's the same length as the Mosfets and nicely finned, but it's a tad too wide next to the 8-pin connector. I'm going to try later trying to put it on, and then attaching the 8-pin power connector, but I think it's too wide
File it down?
grind it down? tape it up?
My laptop didn't sell, so I put Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on it. I will install BOINC on it sometime soon (tonight hopefully)
do you have any heatsinks like this long one? if so you could use that.. Thats what i used on my Biostar and paired it up with a low speed fan.. so one of those and a spot cool and you should be set
This what I plan on doing, but I'm lazy and haven't gotten around to it yet
seems that my x2 cruncher is dead i think i need a mobo and psu
They work great. Pretty reliable too. I've had mine going for 3 years or so now. About to buy a couple more for the 980X bench rig.
I should buy 9, and have one on each mobo screw. All you would see is fans. lol.
i was just browsing the web on the rig since i have my i7 upstairs on the big screen for a weekend of gaming and the rig shuts off and it starts smoking. I tried my PSU that i use for testing my WCing to see if i could get anything and i got nothing also the PSU wont even stay on when i jump it(have 3 fans plugged into it to provide a load) so the mobo and PSU atleast are dead
That sucks. Sorry to hear that dude.
Ouch bro. Might be able to help out on the replacement motherboard later this week. Posted in the "crunchers helping crunchers" thread.
Got my 7gb working in my cruncher. Shocked to say it actually is snappier
My laptop didn't sell, so I'm going to just keep the fucker. As a result, I have BOINC running on it again... only this time, it's in windows 7 64 and not windows vista 32, and I am running the 64-bit BOINC, so the points should be marginally better.
TIM, let me know if I can help in any way bro, sorry about the rig
It doesn't look good, but it's a free way to cool the MOSFETs on my GB board. I took the aluminum heatsink, smeared the bottom in AS5, and attached it to the mobo with a white sticky substance that my dad says is nonconductive. So far, things seem to be working, it hasn't fallen off yet and it's getting quite warm. And the added advantage of this white stuff is it's easily removable, unlike hot glue
As long as it works, you're good. You can always make it look better later.
My friend should be paying me $60 for the RF shortly, in which case I'll be buying the H50, as well as the X25-V I just bought last night
hehe you should post this on ghetto mod thread
Some of you may have known that my "Quad-Cruncher: has been off-line for a few weeks because the DFI board took a crap on me. Well today this rig is back in action! but unfortanently it's no longer a Phenom, just an Athlon X2. I decided to take the ECS board off my f/s thread and put it to good use.
r.i.p. DFI mobo
However, good that you don't idle your hardware Crunch on X2, Crunch on!
