  1. I havent done any research on the koolance line. What quality of pump do those cases have? is the pump built into the top of the case with the rad? how efficient is that block? We are cooling 2 cores at once here, the biggest killer is the small tubing it has for sure. *edit* are you cooling just the cpu? or are you also cooling the gpu etc?
  2. that sounds probably about right, 1/4" tubing for watercooling isnt helping at all. I was getting those temps with a maze4 1/2" tubing and a weak pump (the pump was probly the killer) I switched to a TDX and D5 pump and can push 1.7v and get 32c at idle 44-45c load (78f room temp). You probably dont want to hear this but i think you definitly need to rethink your watercooling. That setup isnt really for overclocking, more for keeping the noise down at decent temps at 55c your starting to get into the red..... besides re-doing your whole case one thing you might try is instead of using the VID special % voltage increase use the normal VID control and try 1.45v, I noticed on my board the % voltage increases created a voltage fluctuation so you might be able to get stable at a lower voltage
  3. ok heres a little update, with the 704 bios (what i used first) it was only stable at 2.7ghz with 1.65v....as far as the special vid control it did not help at all and was infact less stable. Today i tried the 623-2 modded by OCZ tony and its stable at 2.7ghz at 1.6v which dropped my load temps to 45c. Also with this bios the special vid control is more stable. i guess later on this week ill be trying the other verisons of 623bios to see if i can get my ram to a higher oc
  4. Thanks a ton for the input guys, ill definitly give the special vid control only a try. I left prime running while i took a trip to astros game (which was bad f'in a$$ btw) it errored after 6 1/2 hrs so i think i can back off the voltage a bit. Ive only had this chip for a day now so theres still tweaking to be done. edit** also those temps are from mbm with the setup files from the forum once again thanks for the input, and ill let ya know if the special vid control makes any difference for me
  5. I tired a few searches here and at hardocp but couldnt find a definite answer for my question. When should I start to worry about the voltage on my manchester? Im running it at 1.65v right now and i get an idle temp of 38 and load temp of 48-49 on watercooling. If it lasts me for 3 years at 1.65v ill be extactic, my concern is I dont want to have a dead chip here in a few weeks/months. what are you guys opinions?
  6. im using the 680's with the soundstorm and all i have to say is GO GET A DIGITAL COAX FROM MONSTER CABLE ive been using a regular coax cable and just yesterday i got a digital coax and OMG its nearly a night and day difference the sound is MUCH MUCH clearer..the bass hits a lot smoother and the highs and mids really come out, then youll start to hear things you havent heard before my roommate has an audigy2 and his 4.1 kilpch's sound top notch with it..id definitly recommend one... i need to hook his comp up with my speakers now
  7. Installed it this morning runs very nice at 1280x1024 2xAA 4xAF high settings on my rig [bimg]http://supra9301.homestead.com/files/igotdoom.jpg[/bimg]
  8. LOL yes ive played them all...but i play a few more than others. Farcry is one of the very few games ive played through the entire single player. A lot of the times i play the multiplayer
  9. lmfao i love your cpu overclock analogy it hits the issue dead on...ive lost a little short term memory due to smoking pot but within 2 moths ive been able to gain a majority of it back.......the human brain is an amazing tool. The ONLY other drugs i have tried besides cannabis are shrooms and extacy...the shrooms i did hardly had any affect one me it, turned out to be a bad batch so im definitly going to try that again. My X experience was also a dissapointment because when my body gets hot i feel sick to I my stomach so i threw a great deal of it up. I also plan on trying ex again. I do have mental control over myself because i have decided that i do not want to try anything other than X and shrooms. Ive smoked cigs many a times but have never had an urge to smoke them.....people say cigs are very addicting but i dont have an addictive personalitity so i smoke them when i want to. I dont have kids but i can definitly predict that when i get to that point in my life i will totaly understand where your coming from and give up drugs all together... kids definitly mix up the equasion quite a bit
  10. [ramble] i better not even start in on this one[/ramble]
  11. whats puts me to sleep is ONE Beer, any more than one and i get kinda hyped up.. Another thing that puts me to sleep within an hour is smoking some shwag...it never fails and its always a DEEP DEEP sleep

  15. I dont want to argue with anyone ......but being myself i LOVE mary jane...and i 100% believe music is 10x better on mary jane. IF you are lucky you are a creative smoker and when your high you create music/art that is beyond a sober state, for example(in one way or another) i LOVE tool's music sober or high but when im high thier music/lyrics take a whole new meaning...and i believe that if you have not been high then you cannot object to this because you have not experienced it. This is my opinon/assumption but i think that most of your favortite musicians have been high to some degree or another...it may have taken thier highness to discover thier true potential but never the less its there. Bottom line (my opinion) being high has touched or given them an idea to create this music....and being sober has enabed them to put this music together. I dont want this to turn into a flame thread so i will also state that mary jane has screwed my life up directly or through another way but i cannot imagine a life w/o trying it atleast once.....live a little people, were all going to die someday so its up to you and i choose not to live my life costrained by what other people say or think. I do what i think is within reason. Now since most of you think im a crackhead/pothead I have not been high in nearly 2 months...so as cliche as it may sound or as little time as 2 months sounds to you. I can and will quit smoking when neccessary. I smoke as a recreation because i like the way it makes me feel and think...you are entitled to your opinions and i respect that......
  16. LMFAO at 34.99 i was about to order one even as nividas #1 fan boy!! lol you got me excellent joke!
  17. if your wondering about the misspelled words yes im drunk again but i dont have to work till mon so its all in good fun...whats life w/o fun??
  18. well guys to be honest i didnt get the radio shack job but i was able to find another...a tele marketing job...lol granted its not a "real job" as some people would say but it does pay the bills lol...thanks for the encouraging words it has honestly helped me through these rough times its only a matter of time till i gain enough computer skills to hang with the big boys lol and hopfully illl find job within computers my true passion o once again thanks again...and btw i own anyone in skrewups just challeng me lmfao!
  19. non of you know this but im gonna go ahead and tell you "im a total skrew up in life" ive never really got my act together in school or in the job sector......but comin up monday ive got an inteview that will hopefully turn my perspecive on life into something good so this interview monday im gearin up for will hopefully turn me 180degrees around and get me prepared for life and i hope you guys are with me cheesy i know but i need as much hel as i can get!
  20. lmao its that time agin and iv played sevral drinkin games and yes as you can tell im drunk again......weeeeeeeeeee!!!
  21. my thoughts as messed up as they may be....are i hear most people sayin "why not blow the whole damn middle east up"....well thats not the reasn were over there, the reason were over there is to give those people freedom...if we go in and blow the whole country up then what have we accomplished? NOTHING. were not fighting a war with iraq...were fighting a war against saddam and his terrorist connections ....how ever insigificant they may be every connection has a lead.... and dont you dare say bush is just on a war path for his fathers assassiniation attempt because either way terrorism is terrorism and one way or another were going to have to deal with it and i for one choose bushes way by heading at it starit on and resoving the problem ASAP before it gets any worse you have your own opinions and you are entiltled to them as much as me or the next person so i ask you not to turn my comments into a flame war but rather post your own comments on the sitiuation and ket the people decide whic side they suits them best
