  1. I will look diffinitly look into the Evercool VC-RE. As for the Thermalright HR-05-SLI looks absolutely sexy however space is kinda scarce in my case. My video card overhangs my stock hsf as it is with less than 2mm of space in between them. Not to mention the PCI-Express power cable backs up into my hard drives.

     

    So I guess you can say size of the hsf is a "factor" in this equation. Any other suggestions?


  2. Well like all motherboards they are great when you first get them but eventually either something breaks or begins to not work to your expectations as it once did. Sure enough its happened again. The chipset fan on my motherboard aside from aside from not doing a efficient job of cooling, 49*C in Bios, it souds like someone is driving a moped inside my case.

     

    So my question to everyone here on OCC is what chipset cooler would you recommend? I would like one that I can simply just slap on some thermal grease and mount, without having to worry about modding or doing some serious re-arranging. Direct links are much appeciated, thanks again in advance!

    Case: Lian-Li PC-65B

    Motherboad: DFI Lan-Party UT SLI-DR

    Video Card: XFX 6800GS


  3. The last time I was adding a new hard drive to my Lian-Li PC-65 I did a little wire management. In the process I managed to snap 1 of the 4 clips that the front panel connects to. After doing some intense searching I came across the item I was looking for unfortunatly for a $2 part it was cost my $8 to have it shipped to me.

     

    Anyone know of any website that carries Lian-Li replacement parts for sale other www.sliverpscs.com? (I also checked frozencpu, performance-pcs but couldn't find the item). I am looking for this part in particular Lian Li Front Face Plate Connecting Plastic Clips. Any help or direction would be much appeciated

     

    Thanks in advance

  4. Got 2 Items up for sale this time, they were going to be used on my next system build this time for my dad's office but at the last minute he decided against a desktop and went with a panasonic toughbook (FYI extremely lightweight). Anyhow majority of the items I was able to return minus a restocking fee, other than the two that I am selling here today. One is a Black Antec Mid-Tower Case with a 500 watt PSU that has never been used and is still in the box. The other is a Seagate 500GB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive that I hooked up only to verify that it wasn't DOA before I put it back in its OEM packaging.

     

    I am asking for about $105 Shipped for the Antec Case w/ PSU and $95 Shipped for Seagate SATA II Hard Drive. Orders will processed through PayPal and shipped via Fed-Ex Ground or UPS Ground once payment is recieved. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to contact me via AIM, PM, Email etc. Hesitant about buying? Need some references first? Just ask some of your fellow OCC members...

  6. Ok, so both are in working condition, right? They are not dead or have any bad parts, right? If so, how much for both?

    That is correct, both motherboards are fully working and in good condition. Both have been sitting in motherboard boxes inside anti-static bags since I removed the one from my computer and the other from the RMA. UkJenT I will contact you via pm


  7. Its time once again to do a little spring cleaning...I have two motherboards that have been laying around my room for a while and its about time I parted with them. Both of which are MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Socket 939. One of the motherboards I sent off to be RMA'ed due to a bad PCI slot, and the other I took out of my main rig when I upgraded to a DFI motherboard. Both are good stable boards wether it be for the everyday user or one looking to overclock. I asking around $60 shipped for each board, however I am willing to negotiate (especially if you buy both of them lol).

  8. My current graphics card is XFX 6800GS 256MB. I didn't really consider upgrading my videocard as my next one I would be purchasing would have direct x10 capibilities However the only cards with direct x10 (looking at 8800 series) are still rather expensive. Buying a videocard without those cabilities would be sorda a waste, wouldn't? Would I see a much improvement in performance over my current card running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit?

     

     

    Computer Hardware:

    Windows Ultimate x64 quality settings on full

    AMD Athlon64x2 4400+

    DFI LanParty UT DR

    GSkill DDR400 2GB

    XFX 6800GS 256MB

    3xWD 320GB SATAII Raid 0

     

    Computer Usage:

    Huge multitasker

    Not a big gamer as college and parties

    I don't do any videoeditin (exception convert dvd - divx & vise versa)

    Ocassionally I mess around in Photoshop although not heavily enough to be the determining factor

     

    Just curious but has anyone heard any buzz floating about regarding what the rival processor companies have in store for the near future?


  9. :withstupid:

    While I have been out of the game for a while and have been toying with the idea of upgrading my computers processor. Should I stay with my current setup and play the waiting game, upgrade a single component, or upgrade to one of the new fancy processors ( :rolleyes: )

     

    OS: Vista 64 Ultimate

    Processor: AMD Athlon64x2 4400+

    Motherboard: DFI LanParty UT DR

    Memory: GSkill DDR400 2GB

     

    (Intelligent Responses Onlye...Please Don't Make This an AMD vs. Intel . Contest)

     

    Who's leading the game and will continue to hold the lead in the race for the best processor?

    Are the socket 775/AM2 processors going to the new standard for more than a year or is something new on the way?

    Finally Best Bang For A Buck

     

    Thanks Again...

     

    Edit:

    Rather not OC (me + overclocking = fire extinguisher)

    Don't plan on doing anything till my birthday which is April 10... In case anything big is happening around that time.

  12. Hey guys after some extreme efforts, I was finally able to gety raid 0 setup via the bios and have windows vista reconignize and install onto it horray!

     

    Below is a copy of my results via HD Tach.

    Setup 3x320GB Western Digital SATAII HDs in Raid-0

  13. Tehee I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and I love it. I am kinda curious as to why they stopped selling them personally. Not being all that confident in my OCings skills I have yet to toy with it, which is dumb on my part since I have a LanParty UT SLI-DR. But there out there somewhere you just have to look hard enough you find one eventually. With Chistmas coming up and new cpu's to be had I may part with mine, PM if still have had no luck in finding one.

     

    (Sry moderators for the above statment as it belongs elsewhere, I just figured to through that in to help him out, especially since I am uncertain if I will do so).


  14. Hey guys about a month ago everything was fine and dandy with my computer setup which was running Windows XP Professional SP2 over my three hards (320GB WD SATAII 16mb). My world got even better when the computer technican at my father's office was too swamped with work to test out the copy of vista they recived to determine whether it would benefit the company, the job was passed on to me.

     

    My problem is in the past I had my harddrives setup in raid 0 via the bios using the nvida contoller built on to my motherboard. However during the Vista install process it recognized the drives seperatly. Tried using the drivers that came with the motherboard, tried using the beta drivers off nvida's site. I haved tried almost every trick in the book I could think of with 0 success. So does anyone know who to make this possible? (Run raid 0 in bios and install vista)

     

    In the meantime I setup raid 0 in windows via the computer managment tool however I could only have 2 of my drives stripped cuz the 3rd had the OS on it and gave me an error message saying can't do it. If no one knows of a solution to my first question does anyone know of a software based program that will allow me somehow to run raid 0 with my 3 drives. I don't mind reinstalling or anything like that as long as I get it fix.

     

    Any suggestions is much appeciated and thanks in advanced

    (also please no comments about the danger of data loss/drive failure, I am aware of this and all critical material is constantly backed up to an external/dvds)


  15. what model board its it. and if i buy the board and proc will there be a discount.

     

    MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Motherboard Socket 939 (Non-SLI)

     

    And unfortunatly BigRed has already purchased the processor. I do apoligize however for not updating the thread. But I do still have the motherboard for sale and if your still interested I am sure we can work something out. Just hit me up on AIM or via PM.

  16. Alright thanks bigred...

     

    Would it be smarter to run raid 5 at 1.5 to have that extra layer of protection if a drive fails. I am shooting for perforance but also want reliablity if something goes wrong. Would it be better to use this array or just stick to raid 0 and use my external which would be like 1/3 the size of my primary harddrive?

     

    Also does Raid 0+1 need four hard drives lol?
