Nope. Saw it initially on XS that linked over to OCN.
Finally got a new HD for the main rig.
Can't beat it for $99.
is it the sata3 version?
still a good disc, but for 99$ it would have been REALLY nice if it were the sata3 version
I have one of those but would love another to do raid 0!
My PC ATM:
I need to find some sort of cooling solution for the NB/vREGs and route the cables better up by the GPU, but I'm pretty happy with it
cut up a old HS and put it on with some thermal tape thingie, that should be good,
If you can see under the H50, there's an aluminum HSF that I stuck on the vREGs and it does wonders, however, with no airflow around the mobo it and the NB HSF are extremely hot, to the point that it hurts to touch them. I think I'll pick up an Antec Spot Cool, it should be perfect for this application
Yeah, its not the SATA 3 don. I don't have SATA 3 on my motherboard anyway.
I forgot to post these two pics up of my cable management with the NZXT cables.
Awesome cables btw.
I love that case Have the same problem routing cables around the GPU area though...
Also, in a low airflow situation there can be some real heat buildups above the GPU, especially when your cooler doesn't throw the air out of the case.
This it the biggest problem, it's the main reason why I leave the side panel off, I did have a fan in the spare expansion slots above the GPU, which helped, but I haven't put it back in yet after the H50 installation.
The biggest problem indeed, and the reason I'm planning on a 120mm blowhole. I'm going to do some test runs with the top panel off instead of the side now
I don't have the skills to do that, so I'm limited with whatever fans I can add to it how it is now...I'll probably add a side fan at some point (just need to find a spare 120mm fan) or maybe one in the spare expansion slots again...but for now leaving the side panel off works quite nicely
Love your rig johnny!
Well the hole itself won't be a problem since I can cover that up with radgrills. The only problem is perfectly aligning the drill holes here
Wow that looks a lot better jonny you should swing by the Nzxt clubhouse and post this update of the sweeeeet cable management you have here.
T77 hows the cruncher? running good?
OK guys and gals! my new ASRock A785GHM/128 Motherboard arrived! i installed the CPU, ram and cooler and she booted first try! Im so glad cause it was a Newegg openbox and was worried it might be DOA.
thats nice bro, but uhm.....how the F*** are you gonna fit that HUGE cooler in that little case
Im either gonna cut the case to get it to fit or i was offered a Thuban heatsink with the heatpipes so i will see tomorrow cause the case is suppose to get here tomorrow but it has to come through nashville and if anybody has seen the news, nashville is flooded due to horrible rains. so maybe tomorrow or maybe saturday.
can you cool the cpu without the fan on the cooler?
then you might have a bit more room
the amd stock cooler isnt that bad, if you just take off the fan and add a 92/120mm fan on top of it its actually pretty decent and can take a small overclock imo
ah, i just got that as 939 board! works a charm, even tho, its bios is a little spartanic for OCing... but i bet with some ddr 500 and an athlon fx, it could do wonders! anyone an offer?
Performance > looks:
Good for about an 8c drop in CPU temps and 14c drop in GPU temps (load) with fan on max, it's loud but no offensive (unlike AMD stock HSF)
