  1. Its about time for me to replace the zalman gm1000 mix I have running in my system so I'm kind of exploring my options right now. It has to be UV reactive but Fluid XP is way to expensive so thats ruled out. Danger den supposedly has some new product called PC Chill coming out that looks like it fits the bill but they havent updated availability on it in 2 months.


    what does everyone here use in their rigs?

  2. Just make sure you have the safe shutdown temperature in your bios on. it usually defaults to 60c. I like to take off both side panels when I prime overnight and have a big fan blowing directly on the mobo which helps greatly. make sure you read the faqs next time too; these questions get asked endlessly

  3. Well I just powered on this morning, at first there was no boot, then I resetted a few times and it posted. Same problem with windows not loading, ok I think its corrupted and I must re-install. Setup stalls out at "Setup is loading Windows" hmmm thats never happened before. While Im trying to figure that one out the computer turns off and shuts itself off out of the blue. It will power back on but with 4 leds. I noticed before it did that the 12v rail in the bios was reading real low like 11.88v. Im thinking the PSU has taken a crap? im lost here

  4. having a problem similar to this guy :http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=64821


    did some light maintenance on the WC, cut a new length of hose and attached (old one was a tad too short and nearly falling off). Motherboard was not removed, just the video card to get at the tubing more easily. Stitched it back up and power on, post took a lot longer than usual, but a black screen when booting into windows. hmmmm. reset, and now no post. Initially it will halt on 3 leds, I reset and then it halts on 2 leds. thats the way it sits now.


    Im thinking there is a small spill somewhere I cant see that it causing the problem? Im doing an overnight cmos clear (give it some time to dry also) and hoping for the best in the morning. I tried re-seating the video card to no avail and it looks pretty air tight as far as leaks go. any ideas???

  5. I have the same problems with CCC, no matter what driver I try. I will try what Mack27 suggested. My first thought was that it meight have something to do with my nlite version of XP. Can anyone tell me how to install the Omega drivers? I was never able to get them installed -> unknown devices, driver not found...




    Im using an nlite version of XP also; I think something with the refresh rates are fudged because every game does this freezing thing.

  6. It seems as though my max stable oc is [email protected] At 2.95 and 1.58vcore, core 2 fails at around 7.5hrs or so. at 3.0ghz, core 2 fails in seconds no matter what vcore is applied. this guy here http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...4&postcount=250

    has the same board, bios, stepping and ram as me and is 3.0 stable at 1.5v. Now I know the same hardware doesnt neccsarily guarantee the same OC as the next guy but one has to reason I should be close no? Could this possibly be PSU related? MBM reads the 12v rail at around 11.88 or so when priming. I know this setup has 3.0 in it somewhere:confused:
