found a deal on a Hyper 212 EVO, $27 plus taxes
The quad core is overclocked to 4.5ghz and I think that is the only reason it worked that way. I tried up to 20 but it did not like 20. Daily gain? By that you mean ppd? I can get 130k if I actually leave the computer alone for a few days.
thats including the graphics card too?
It is watercooled so temps are not a concern, so yes I do run it overclocked upto 1250mhz. It is completely stable. I do however forget to set the overclock, because natural selection 2 does not like any overclock above 1000 and I play that quite often.
This am3+ system I am building early this week came with a free 8gb stick of ram. I was going to just stick that in there by itself instead of the 4gb stick I was going to. Single channel ram wont affect crunching performance much would it?
The loss due to single channel RAM is less than 1%
That reminds me. I think you have the mem in the SB-E in the wrong slots, use B1 and D1 when only two are in.
OK, will do. IIRC I'm doing A1 and B1 ATM. But I have new RAM coming this week (a 2x8GB kit) and I'll put it in the right slots then.
CPU-Z says it's in dual-channel now though...
any recommendations on a 2nd fan for my Hyper 212?
Are you going for noise levels or performance? I like my Noctua fans for both, but I hate the ugly colors.
considering my P280 is a super quiet case, i would opt for performance. Fan noise doesnt really bother me unless the fan is starting to kick the bucket in which case i toss it in the trash.
How about a pair of Cougars like these?
COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Flui...
FYI- best option is a matching set so you can either find another like the one you already have or a pair of something else...
I have a pair of the black non-PWM ones on my TT Water 2.0 Performer (yes, I know they suck as rad fans, but my CPU only consumes ~80w of energy max and the fans are really quiet). They are pretty decent if you want something quiet that moves a medium amount of air. They were great in push-pull on my Hyper 212 EVO and they didn't annoy the crap out of me when my board put full voltage on them all the time due to the temperature.
How about those swiftech helix fans.
these are what i can choose from http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?cPath=8_130&bsort=0&brand=0&price=2&location=KING
If you can go direct to the store and pick them up then try a pair of these:
Clearance @ $4.98 is a pretty good price!
*** EDIT- or these Cooler Master's:
Thunder storm rolling in, shutting down for the next few hours (or overnight).
If you want the best, get the corsair ones SP ones. I got some on my rad and they are great. At 7v they cool as well as my yate loon highs did on 12v and are very quiet at 7v. The tone is a lot better also. What norton suggested would be good for on the cheap also.
+1 for the Corsair SP's
happy easter to all!!!!!!!!
Enjoy the holiday everybody!!!
P.S. This is my project for today....
ya know, if you were in the holiday spirit you would just sent that setup to me brother.....
Such a rocky ride... my 73yr old mother who just survived 2 months worth of cancer treatments, and was doing well, had a bad fall, and is now back in the hospital. Anyone
who believes in prayers, or whatever, need some more now. I haven't gotten proper feedback yet, so I don't even know how she's doing.
sorry to hear that, i hope things aren't to bad
My prayers are with you and your mom.
The 3570K arrived just need a PSU now and a DVD drive.
