  1. only 3.33ghz?.....:rolleyes:


    Ive had my E6600 at 3.6GHz on my DFI without much work. It took him weeks to get his to 3.33 stable. Next upgrade I'll show him the wonderful world of DFI. :)


    On a side note, youre right... 3.33GHz on a Core 2 is an insane amount of processing power, maybe "only" wasnt the right choice of word.

  2. As far as filling it up, IMO, jumping the PSU is for chumps. I plug it into a fan controller, and turn the knob up/down depending on how much water I am pouring into the res. If I have too much water, I turn it up, too little water, turn it down and pour faster. It's so much better than the guides I'e read that say to fill it up a small bit, turn the pump on, turn it off, and continue doing this. It'll take forever to fill the loop up that way.


    Unless your fan controller can handle the power draw of your pump, (not many can) and your controller can provide clean power for the pump, I wouldnt do that. Fan controllers have a tendency to take nice, clean DC PSU power and fudge it up to some rippled DC.

  3. Thank you for your reply. I had a look at your suggestion.

    My case is black and I would like to keep the faceplates the same...I thought that the 18watts per channel on my choice would be enough for my fans...yes? Also this is only a gaming pc so the fans will be on full all the time...I don't ever hear them over the roar of the game..LOL

    thanks again.


    Why get a fan controller if your fans are always going to be at full blast? :rolleyes:


    Doesnt make sense to me. :confused:

  4. Kind of pissed off that I turned on my computer this morning and managed to fry a stick of my Corsair XMS2. I had already voided the warranty some months ago when I pushed the DDR2-675 to 1005MHz @ 2.45v, so Im not too upset. I had since reduced it to 838MHz on the 800MHz divider with my CPU at 3.0GHz at stock volts.


    Now I have one of my beautiful sticks of XMS2 sitting here on my desk.


    Im now looking at these Geil sticks on newegg, not because theyre orange, but because theyre DDR2-800 and can be pushed to 2.4v without voiding the warranty. Cheap too, free jump drive is a plus I guess... already got a 1GB stick though.


    How does Geil work with DFI motherboards? Any other RAM recommendations? I was looking into Mushkin on newegg, but I dont see any DDR2-800 with low timings short of the eXtreme or Redlines. I would love a pair of Redline sticks, but I cant afford it. Any cheapish RAM... like, under $170ish? 2x1GB

  5. Must be because I might not be using the same USB port. Im going to fiddle a bit and see if I can find the one I used originally.


    XP Pro btw.


    EDIT: Found it... Razer control panel recognizes it now. Thanks... I had a feeling the port was the problem but wasnt sure.

  6. I bought my Razer Copperhead at my local CompUSA for 20% off due to the store closing down. Excellent, excellent mouse.


    I installed it just fine, hooked it up, installed the drivers, played some BF2 with it. I shut my computer down and carted it back to college with me, and now when I hook up my mouse and open the Razer Control panel thing, it pops up a window telling me that the mouse isnt detected and that no settings will be saved. The mouse still works beautifully, the on-the-fly sensitivity adjusment buttons and my settings are still stored in the mouse, but I cant change/save them.


    Any insight? Ive tried restarting my computer and changing the USB port that its plugged in to.
