  1. Just a few pages back m8:lol: Enter the Matrix There's a few assocated posts after the link i just gave. luck:)
  2. Like i said in the PM a couple of eeks ago, If you look at this review CoolIT Freezone CPU Cooleryou'll see how it fits, it looks similar to a water block. You just need to have room in your case to put the rest.not sure how good it is Air-, Liquid- and Thermo-Electrical Cooling Technologies in One: CoolIT Freezone Review (page 10) Luck:)
  3. I got 1 when i 1st moved to c2d, wnt for a week or so wondering what was wrong with my temps, they were toasting. I ended up RMaing it , sounds ridiculous with a cooler, but replacement worked as it should. All i can think off it was a damaged heatpipe. Believe me i was an expert at mounting & unmounting them:lol: Have not tried my q6600 on airt am quiet interested to see results. Am 18hr prime stable on 1.40v @9x400. [email protected] ain't bad though:nod:
  4. hi m8 how ya doing:nod: not tempted to the dark side yet?? :cool: or just not updated your siggy :eek2:(hastily doing his own:lol:)
  5. Is that the Ultra or the extreme?? I had an ultra a while back b4 i moved to water, Thought they still turned but the old grey cells may be playing tricks:lol: That's pretty cool then in more ways than 1:lol: Got an ultima 90 i wanna try on the abit barebones b4 i try it on water. Luck:)
  6. Have you tried selectively tightening the securing bolts.?? Assuming cores are :- 0 2 1 3 try tightening the bolt a half turn on the corner near the hottest core , i'm on water but use the same principal, got about 4~5C diff now. It'll be interesting to see how it goes 7x500 on air more or less out the box ain't a bad start.
  7. Went retail today just *issed it wasn't me that got the board, have one on pre-orderpre-order Abit iX38 QuadGT Tammy Jwat:lol: still it looks fairly good , apart from what appears to be a non std nb mounting (shades of DFI) & an apparent lack of usb ports.
  8. Yes fair point re gigabyte the DQ6 range, it has been very successsful, have read that that's the main reason that gigabyte were 1st to market by about a week with the x38. wevsspot, your shaowing your age:D, mind you think i was just behind in the queue, as i have similar memories. Seems we save money on cpus these days and have to blow it on mobos. Hvinfg slobbered a bit last night over the maximus, i'm still drawn to the cheaper but similarly specced abit quad, will wait & see the benches
  9. Surfs up on Asus Maximus Formula SE X38 & but Abit IX38 QuadGT is due out next week. Am discounting the dfi offering, expecting it as usual some time after the rest. Last 2 boards have been Asus, commando , which is also ROG:eek: (5/10) & p5k dlxe (9/10) I do feel that quality & support are a bit of a lottery with asus, but as usual, the board looks good. I'm unsure which to get, has anyone else got plans, ideas, or are you holding out till penryn & ddr3 cheers
  10. What brand memory have you, some 667 will overclock further if you slacken timings &/or increase ram voltage. You might also investigate divider options. You might also find the guides in the stickies helpful & also Clunk's Core 2 Duo Basic Overclocking guide for beginners luck:)
  11. with a Go yep. The main isssue with b2 as ststed is heat. more info Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General Info & Clunk luck:)
