  1. Here are some pics of my rig.... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Desktop The raidiator was the hardest part to install...back of the case was unsuitable so had to mount it in the front. Used some parts from my old water cooling setup to mount it......
  2. Built my rig yesterday, every thing went fine, booted up first go with no problems.....First thing I did was flash to the new BIOS and installed the water cooling today, fingers crossed I dont have any problems with this board but its early days !!!!!
  3. Nice !! So whats the difference between the standard 8800GTX and the XXX version, just the BIOS ???? If so ill consider flashing to it, though not sure I want these things running any faster just yet....They get aufly hot when running a game.....How much difference have you noticed temperature wise?

  5. Yea there have been alot of issues with this but apparently the new BIOS fixes all the issues they have been having with this issue, and from what ive read in EVGA forums every one thats flashed to it think the issue has been resolved. Ime in the process of building a CD2 system, still waiting on some parts but have the latest BIOS ready to flash when the board arives....And if I still have issues ill RMA it and consider an Asus Striker Extreem...
  6. Lol !!! The link to the Playstation Grill is pretty funny as well ! http://www.ps3grill.com/
  7. Lol $1200 US for this keyboard :eek2: - Cant see to many of these being sold, atleast in the early stages. Would be awsome to have one though :drool: How much would every one be willing to pay....??? My limit would probably be round the 300-400 $ mark....
  8. But then there is the Nvidia G80 ! Wow a dual core video card !!! :eek2: Things are getting crazy !!! http://www.vr-zone.com/?i=3177
  9. Anybody been reading up on Pci E 2.0? Dont know much about it myself. Suppost to be comming out in 2007...as will DDR 3. Prehaps the next gen video cards and boards will support this... Was thinking about upgrading to AMD 4x4, but as Amd Quad cores are suppost to be comming out in 2007 and all that other stuff, thinking that would probably be a waste of time.... Whats everyone else think :confused:
  10. The highest speed we can connect down here in Australia is 24mbps (ADSL2+), but since I am about 1 kilometer from my exchange (0.6 miles), the highest I can connect at is 10mbps, 1mbps upload all the time.... I pay $45 (roughly $35 usd) with a 10gig download cap....
  11. Imagine HL3 on Quad core and Quad SLI ! Hopefully the game is being developed with these technology's in mind....which it probably is.... Its gona be awsome ! :drool:
  12. I wonder how many episodes there will be Perhaps there will be season 1, 2 ect .....
  13. Just wondering what people have got planned for future upgrades? The hype is all on AM2 DDR2 systems right now it seems not to mention Quad Core Intel's.... Ive read that DDR3 isn't all that far away from release how that will change every thing again ! Ill probably wait till Quad Core AMD's that support DDR3 with next gen Nvidia cards are on the market coupled with a DFI Board which will hopefully be here sooner than later....will just need the $$$$$$$$ to by it all....
  14. Heres my car, got it not long ago, its a Ford Falcon SR -
  15. Thankz for that, some awsome ideas there. Ive already tried some of them. Ill try to post some new pics soon .
  16. Thought Id ad some pics of my comp - Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 BTW has anyone got any ideas on how to "clean up" my case of all the cable clutter ?
  17. Same with me, its a real shame when you kill a CPU due to overclocking. But its quickly forgoten when a new blazing fast CPU is on its way in the post.
  18. LOL, Ive got the CPU water cooled but its only a Big Water cooling system. Does the job though. Throught about getting water cooling for my cards but it seems like more trouble than its worth seeing as how I dont plan on overclocking them anyway. Personal choice I guess.
  19. Just installed my new GPU coolers and they are great. They are very quiet and keep temps about 5 degrees cooler than before. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of buying them ! BTW there is heaps of clearence between the cooler and the card below.
  20. Thanks for the imput guys, ive ordered 2 Zalman VF900-Cu's today. Hopefully the will work ok.

    Ye Old Stutter Bug

    Has anyone played Half Life 2 Episode 1 ? Our old friend stutter bug is back :mad: I thought Valve would have sorted that out by now ! Also what does every one think about the name, I though "Half Life 2 - Beyond City 17" or something like that would have been better than "Episode 1"
  22. Hi guys, just wondering if anyone can suggest a good cooler(s) I can buy to replace the stock cooling on my video card's ? Ive been looking at Zalman VF900-Cu ( http://pcmaniacs.com.au/product_info.php?products_id=2897 ) Are these any good for an SLI setup ?
  23. Heres were it is - The small circle represents it temp sensor, the other circle is the PWM IC chip its self. ( PIC from thread - http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6798 )
  24. My chipset temp never gets over 40 now at load, before it was getting upto 49 +. I only have mine on half speed aswell. Though the installation was a bit tricky it was well worth the effort.
