  1. one more the blue die i got really sucks it only lasted one day, i got to call and get them to send me something different
  2. ok the bottom looks like a mess. I am planning on cleaning it up later Finished let there be light
  3. finally to install the water block. I had trouble with the apogee on this board it seems that the provided one inch bolts were not long enough so i had to go up a size Time to fill the system and leak test, man there were a lot of bubbles at first and the pump was loud as hell, but i rotated the case a little bit and once it ran overnight it got real quite
  4. I wanted to give the case a little more lift for the rad fans, i found some 1 inch risers at Ace, but I had to redrill and tap the holes because i couldnt find a long enough bolt I think it turned out good
  5. yep its my first, i did a hole heck of a lot of research, i actually finished it. just need to hook up my matrix orbital. but i think my 6800 gt temp is too high it idles at 40 degrees. All of the air is bleed out once i flipped the case around some. now its really quite. My Newcastle idles at 26 degrees is that OK
  6. Lian Li V2000 PA 120.3 Yate Loon Fans D5 Pump Apogee GT MCW60 Micro Res 7/16” Tubing I wanted to push the radiator as far back as possible to keep the hard drive rack fully intact. I made a radiator template in AutoCAD, using the dimensions from Themochill’s website. Got the idea for the radiator placement from OC UK I originally wanted to use the Dremel tungsten router bit with the circle cutter, but it didn’t cut worth a crap, so I cut it with cutting wheels and the flex shaft It was pretty scary cutting into my Lian Li case. I took it slow making little cuts at a time. Two down and one to go Here is the final result not to bad for a free hand Dremel. I ordered some molding from Frozen Cpu, but it was to thin. I am debating putting fan grills over top the holes, or just the molding. I can figure that out later. If you look between my feet you can see my rabbit being nosey. Every thing fit fine, now to the pump. I wanted to keep the reservoir feeding the pump, with the radiator feeding the blocks with the order RES > PUMP> RAD>CPU>GPU>RES. I know the order doesn’t make a hole lot of difference, but this order will also create the shortest tube length. I needed to flip the pump upside down, I actually found these clips used to hang mirrors Final after tapping the clips After hanging the pump and drilling some holes to route the tubing Close Up The Res. Run More To Come Later!!
  7. Wow look at were performance pc mounted the bottom 2x120 radiator they rotated the bottom drive cage 90 degrees and mounted the radiator on it. looks like a good idea maybe i will try it http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/ind...5651f4e9ab13496
  8. Unexpected OC results I have only been overclocking for 4 months because I had to wait to get a new PSU with high enough amps on my 12V rail. My memory sucks doesn’t overclock well at all, and I have been messing with settings trying to get the best aquamark 3 score. The settings in my sig give me a about 66,000 score, with the following settings I get the following scores; 224 fsb, 11 cpu multi, 9/10 divider @ 2.5,3,3,6 1T rest Auto = about 66,000 240 fsb, 10 cpu multi, 166mhz divider @ 2.5,3,3,6 1T rest Auto = about 67,400 Why would the second one with the lower cpu and memory frequency yield a better score Is it because of the higher fsb, is this proof of the multiplier myth? Oh and the 224 scenario uses a v core of 1.6 and 240 uses 1.55 If you guys need more info I will have to wait till i get home from work i cant remember the precise details
  9. 2.5ghz is all i can get out of my newcastle also, even putting the memory on 1/2 divider
  10. what kind of power supply do you have, i couldn't overclock at all with my old power supply an mge vigor 500w that only had 19a on 12v rail, when i got my powerstream i can hit 2.5ghz stable as a rock
  11. would the ocz powerstream obstruct the top blow hole fan int the cm stacker 830 i know the powerstreams are 7" deep wonder if it would hit the fan
  12. My corsair does not go much higher than 240 @ 2.5,3,3,3,10 1T rest Auto it sucks :mad:
  13. I have a sunbeam chromatic windmill, it works ok. It's pretty fragile if i had to do it over again i would get this Aerocool the windmill does controll 7 fans though max 10 watts per channel and has 3 temp sensors. You can adjust the alarm settings for the three sensors, when max temp is reached it beeps rather loudly and kicks all 7 fans on full blast untill the temperature goes down
  14. but could i use the PC Power and Cooling ASL on my current board
  15. just ordered the ocz 600w, was 189.00 with rebate at newegg, little expensive but i still have some christmas money left over hope it lasts me a while
