i gotta get one of those
Not mounted like that on an AM3.
sorry for being stupid, but what do you mean?
you got one of thise nice brackets yes? but what else?
Must be an Enzotech. Good piece of equipment for AM sockets. They were the first bit of modding I ever did, and the reason I found this site.
The only way to mount the D14 on an AM3 is with the fans facing the dimms. You can't make it face the card slots with the brackets Noctua supplies and they don't offer one to do it.
I know why because you completely loose accessibility to the closest 2 dimms on AMD boards. On the Asus 890GX board I took that picture on it becomes really problematic since Asus alternates the channels instead of like my Gigabyte 790X board that groups them together.
I.E.: 790X: dimms go 1a|2a|1b|2b| with 2 dimms you either use both a or b for dual channel.
890GX go 1a|1b|2a|2b| where 2 dimms either use 1a and 2a or 1b and 2b.
No Enzotech. Xigmatek then go to ACE and get longer bolts for Intel pattern. Still need to trim spacers since even using the Intel spacers still set the cooler too high and doesn't make contact with cpu.
More expensive than Enzotech, but nice looking. Also, you can flip the brackets on the HS to allow contact.
You'd need to trim the Noctua spacers in half to use that one or more. I needed 20mm bolts to be able to do what I did.
Really got the Xigmatek bracket to use with 2 systems I had. This just dawned on me the other night when I was just messing around with the other one I had.
Why is it people disable cool'n'quiet and speedstep? It hasn't affected general purpose over-clocks in ages and ages.
So surely it's better to leave it on?
Much better idle temps/less power usage at no cost to you, the user.
because it looks cool to have your cpu at full bore all the time
It causes BSODs in my AMD rig if I move the fsb even a single Mhz.
It doesn't lower the voltage on my Maximus Formula if I select anything other than Auto for vcore. Lowering the speed without lowering the voltage is almost pointless.
As such, I'd rather just take the safe approach, and leave it off.
: / could be a problem with board or CPU then.
I've never had a problem with any of my various rigs when overclocking with power saving features on, my 4ghz + runs on my e5200 even had them on :S
Anyone else any info on this, am I just lucky?
maybe a red tinted acryllic window would be nice?
I dno, i like the ability to just reach in
How good would a 2nd HD5850 look?
Make a window with a hinge
And moar GFX = moar Power = moar win ofc.
lik this ....im t3h l33t PS'er
that is literally horrible, but AMAZING!! lol.
now you're hurting my feelings
Sorry. I'll buy another 5850 and take a picture with your name in it, just for you.
My new computer + computer mod.
SR-2 in a Cosmos S.
damn dude i like that
what cpu's are you using?
if you havent joined already you should join TPU's WCG/BOINC Team
2 Xeon E5620's .
I'll definitely look into that, It would be good to be able use my computer for BOINC and/or folding when its not being heavily taxed.
