  1. Or whatever you want to call the thing.. lol, under the end of the video card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16811155998 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16835127002 The first one has a user talking about the 2nd link in a review. Which would be best for my board? How would I need to modify my tai-chi cooling system to support this? It currently has a tube running to and from the CPU block.
  2. I'm guessing i'll have to buy something and modify it. I use a Tai-Chi case with the liquid cooling built in. I'm not exactly sure how I am going to add something else to the loop seeing as if I take the cap off the reservoir it'll puke liquid everywhere lol. Is it worth it to try to liquid cool the thing? Or should I go the AS5 route under it? My temps after gaming for awhile hit 52C on the Motherboard & North Bridge sensors in Everest.
  3. I do realize that, and i'm still going to ship it off for a replacement.
  4. There's an option in your display settings under the Troubleshoot tab (in advanced) called Write Combining. I disabled it, and can now run max settings again with no problems. Included a pic.
  5. Nope. This only happens with any graphically intensive options are enabled, so it's the vid card.
  6. My vid card is indeed in my sig. next to my RAM. I noticed artifacting at AA 2x, full lockup at 4x. Defective hardware's the only explanation. This happens at stock settings btw.
  7. I tried sound quality, drivers, onboard sound, even an old SB Live 5.1 I had lying around, Temps are fine, 51 load on the GPU, CPU 27 load, NB temps were 40-42 load.
  8. Narrowed it to the video card finally. I guess none of my other games stress the card exactly the same way that Source does. If I turn on antialiasing at all, bam, it happens. If I turn it off, I can run for hours. RMAing the card on Mon.
