    [email protected] 4.0 ghx OCZ Vendetta 2
    Abit IP35 Pro bios 16 1.375 vcore in bios
    OCZ2P8004GK 2x2GB 5-5-5-15 1.8v
    BFG 8800 GTS OC 320
  1. On my V2 I installed it on the board then installed the fan.Seems it gives a little more working room that way.But the bolt thru kit is the way to go in my opinion. It's definitely a good cooler,I'd rate it ahead of all the other coolers Iv'e used (Tt Big Typhoon w/120x38 Panaflo,Tt Silent Tower w/2x92mm push/pull,TR XP-120 w/Panaflo)Those are some good coolers too.
  2. Nice chip mine takes 1.375 in bios to hit 4.0ghz but 500x8 really rocks.12+ hour Prime 95 stable (3 times lol) With a Vendetta 2 my temps never hit 60c.I run it 24/7.Got it at Microcenter for 189.99 B:)
  3. I had the Coolit Systems Eliminator for over a year.Had to RMA it once as it quit cooling.Got it back then it got stuck on high no matter what the switch was set on.This was cooling a c2d. Now on my E8400 I used a Vendetta 2 w/ a bolt thru kit.The Eliminator is back in it's box lol I like the Vendetta 2 better
  4. As a DIY-er I'm glad to make the move here.I'm sure the combined knowledge of the members will be very helpful to everyone.
  5. I thought about using a Tt backplate and H bracket,as I have a couple of coolers layin around,but went ahead and got the TR bolt-thru kit.

  7. On various builds Iv'e assembled Iv'e used a TR XP-120,TT Silent Tower, and TT Big Typhoon.So far this Vendetta 2 beats them all.:cool: Edit: Oh yeah my Coolit Systems Eliminator is back in it's box,I like the Vendetta 2 better.
  8. I dislike the push pins so much I ordered a TR 775 bolt-thru kit and I'm glad I did.Works great.
  9. Iv'e used an XP-120 on a naked 165.I sanded down the stubs on the bracket. You have to make sure you apply even downforce to avoid cracking the core. I also bought another unmodded bracket to use on cpus with ihs intact.
  10. I ended up replacing my Coolit Systems Eliminator with the OCZ Vendetta 2 And I'm glad I did. Cooler temps and less noise.4.0ghz 1.36v 55-57 load temps
  11. A newer bios perhaps? I ordered a pre flashed chip from Tmod with the 12/11 Beta and it's been good so far for the DFI Dark/965 chipset/E8400.Just a thought.
  12. Yeah the 965 chipset will run the E8400 mine sure does.My DFI Dark doesn't clock as high with 4 sticks of memory but they do run hot so I went back to 2x1gb sticks for now.
  13. I'm seriously considering going back to air as I had to rma this Eliminator once already.Now it's stuck on high no matter what position the control switch is in.Maybe A Swiftech Compact H2O-220? That should do the trick!
  14. I'm satisfied with my 8400 so far.445x9 1.31v in bios.It plays all my games great!! I got mine at the local Microcenter for 190.00 plus tax.
  15. I have the Tracer version of the Ballistix and they are great.
