sorry i don't know shiz about TEC.
YEah. Unfortunately, I didn't set the BIOS to resume power after a power outage, so they never kicked back on.
Should've waited for that relay kit to arrive. :shadedshu
Sorry to read this dude :/
Hopefully your C2D isn't so dead They are warriors lol
my load temperatures are 22C core0, 11C core1 @ 3ghz witrh voltage bumps
Ouch plain ouch Wile E.
I hope that 2900 survived!
since i feel so bad i went and found these if you want to do TEC again the fans wired to the tec cant screw that up
they also have a tun of socket 370/7 stuff if anyone wants to go old school
Thanks for that link. I at most only have to buy another TEC block tho. The TEC still works.
You should still be able to use the block part, you just need to buy a new top.
I would suggest lapping everything again, just to make sure it didnt warp.
Other than that... unless it melted, the block itself should be fine
what a nightmare, I think I might stop by just to see the carnage for myself!!!
Truth be told, I think you're right. It doesn't even really appear warped. I just don't know how I'm gonna get all the cooked on plastic off of it. lol
lol. When do you return from Aruba? (bastard)
mwahaha, tomorrow but real late, so basically tm is our last day
been great so far and have ended up even at the craps table ALL WEEK except last night!!! freaking crappy night...lost $300...bought in 100 each time and lost it all each time...table was just cold and kept expecting it to turn but didn't ...got one more night to see if I can recover my losses or even come out ahead so wish me luck everyone!
and let's all wish wile e some luck getting his rig up and running again!!!
p.s. PM me if there's anything you need me to bring to help you get up and running again next week
Damn.....that sucks bad. I am real sorry to hear that man. I hate it when I have a brain fart that costs me money.
is that a burnt cap?
No. It's just covered in melted neoprene.
Lol, I wouldn't let you near my Bar-B-Q man!
Why not, the food would be done in like 3.2 seconds.
Try putting it in a 400F oven for a while.. plastic will get soft and you should be able to pull it off with pliers
sorry to hear Wil E. Im hoping you TEC that 6000. If that thing could hit 4ghz...it would be something else.
excuse my noobiness, what is a "TEC".
i don't see why you need to wait a week to test the 2900XT. anyway, sorry it happened! but you can't expect to overclock as a hobby without these things happening
Holy sh*t that is the 1337'est overheat I've ever seen.
Holy wow.... First time I actually looked at this...
I'm getting close to looking at a TEC setup myself.
LMao...now that i think about it your right!
One side in a tec gets really really cold...you put that on the cpu
Unfortunately the other side gets really really really hot...See post 1 for the aftermath of a TEC with no cooling
Good job wile at least you admitted it...I took a SERIOUS look at that like 20min after it went up and just couldn't hide that kinda purchase (wife has NOOO clue im on a quad )
