  1. yeah i guess i've been lucky. i'm going on about 2 and a half years with the stock chipset cooler. i guess i should be happy it's lasted this long. lol i'm just listening to this thing now... what a pos lol. ah well ty
  2. I guess I'll just try to limit the usage with this turbine fan i got going on here, and wait for the new replacement one to arrive.
  3. Hey Guys, How's it going? Well I just have a quick question here. My chipset fan over the past 4 days has been going buck-wild. As of right now, I'm on my UT NF4 Ultra-D board with the stock fan. Not sure why the sudden jump but she's definitely barking at me. I decided to go ahead and purchase the Evercool VC-RE from SVC, but my question is this.... How worried should I be in the mean time while i'm waiting for my replacement. Only reason I ask is becuase I'm at school and really can't afford too much downtime. I occasionally shut down my rig down at night, but over the past 4 days unless I'm home in my apartment, I've turned it off. I've tossed up a small 12 second mp3 of the sudden noise, and obviously if you have the time to take a quick listen, I'd greatly appreciate it. You can hear a steady noise then a sudden jump. That's normally what she's been doing whenever I load up cs. I am fairly positive it's my chipset fan becuase i've disconnected nearly every fan including my video card and only left my Heatsink and Chipset fan running. I put my ear right down to my Zalman and didn't hear much noise so assumed it was the chipset. Stoopid Fan *i just used megaupload to host the mp3. As always, I'd appreciate any help. Rob

  5. yea i've tried a few times already. i guess once more can't hurt. unless i'm doing something completely wrong... i dunno whats going on. i've followed the arctic silver's instructions and watched some old-school video off amd's web-site and read/seen some of angry's tutorials as well.
  6. yeah i looked at that before, i don't think it'll fit inside my case... thats why i went with the zal...
  7. alright so I'm seeing terrible temperatures with this zalman even with it facing the proper direction. i've tried adding a small house fan blowing towards the pwmic area and kind of overlapping on the zalman itself and still under load I see temperatures reach 60C +. I'm really beginning to think I made a large mistake buying this HSF... I've tried dropping my vcore a bit from 1.5 to 1.45v and it still really hasn't helped too much. I guess I'll try clocking backwards to 270 + dropping the vcore as much as i can to see if temps improve.... all in all I'm pretty disappointed, I can't lie. does anyone have any other suggestions.. should I look into lapping this thing? just replace it? or what do you think...
  8. ahah yeah i know... i kinda figured something was up. ah well, i'll try switchin it and re applyin some AS then watchin the temps, if they don't decrease that much i'll just add a side fan or 2.
  9. yeah i feel yah will. however i think i'm going to spin the zalman and face it the other way... i'm getting the sense that it's in the wrong way.
  10. hey guys i'll get right to the point.... i've had this zalman9500 for about three weeks now. and earlier under load it wasn't going above 55C, however now i'm seeing load temps of 60C with my side cover off. ( i also have tried resetting the sink and saw the same temps) IDLE TEMPS & LOAD TEMPS I know that technically the chip can handle 60 but when everest reads the CPU @ 60, core @ 64, core 2 @ 66... kinda got me worrying. it will shutdown if she reaches 65C. I also have her overclocked to 280X10 currently....... -- my vcore is 1.5 -- ltd volts - 1.2v -- chipset voltage - 1.5v -- dram voltage - 2.8v (a64info screenshot if needed - more info) now i did just recently add another exhaust hole right at the back of my case so that it would match up better with the zalman, however temps haven't changed too much. (newest case picture) i know the wires aren't that well tied back (had some psu issues, and my corsair620 just shipped this morning) but i doubt that the wires would cause such a crappy cpu temp. as of right now i have the two exhaust fans at the rear, 1 in the psu and 1 on the roof . intake wise i have the 2 at the front, and i also have that pci-card fan in there too. from what i gather from the other threads, some people believe that intake > exhaust in most circumstances is the better choice. i have a 70mm circle cutter that i could easily pop two or three fans for the side of my case (if it would be suggested) but i kinda want to hear from some experienced people first before i start cutting the crap-o-la out of my case. Thanks.
  11. thanks man, i think i'm kinda leaning towards just getting one of the psu's on the dfi 'accepted page' either the 620-Corsair or 600-GameXStream. However having a spare couldn't hurt for instances like this. what's another bill 50 right? lol
  12. alright i tried that and its bunk as skunk! so i hooked it up to my central house computer and she booted up fine. i called a friend of mine who actually purchased a psu to fix his moms computer but then didn't need it anymore. I remembered him saying that he couldn't return it either becuase he lost the receipt. so i drive down to his place picked it up, tossed em' 30 bucks (becuase i'm such a steller guy) & just finished installing it. It's a Nspire ISO-500D 450W power supply, and i'm not sure how solid it is. From what i gather, it's not the greatest since it was only 39 bucks, but it'll hold me over until my replacement comes in (still have warranty on the Enermax) do you guys think that i should scale back my rig to stock speeds from the stable 2700 that i'm at now ? or will it survive for 3 or 4 weeks ?
  13. alright i talked about that with my old man he doesn't seem convinced that i should try that... now by doing it, will it just determine of the psu itself is alright or what would be the outcome of doing this will?
  14. bahh go figure something goes wrong. so everything has been going great, i've actually had success overlcocking this thing. so i then decide that i gotta try to clean up the wires i my case since i never have from when i had the rig built. i clean up the wires and make some room in my case, i plug everything back in, and do a quick test. everything lite up and everything seemed great. so i then go back and fully screw in the drives and put my case more or less back togehter however the only thing that i think i did was i switched the little red switch at the back of the psu from 115 to 230. (why i have no idea) but i did, so then i plugged everything back in, and it lite up but then immediately shut off. and i did notice a bit of a smell, wasn't strong or anything but just a faint smell. now i got nothing at all. did i fry my psu or my board because i'm getting no lights or anything on the board now.
  15. thanks willy u must be down as well on aim... nothing was going through i'll try what you suggested tho now. see what happens edit: alright so i'm back home from work... wasn't busy after talking to wil over aim, i changed my ram settings and also dropped the mem clock freq as well. screenie so i ran orthos at 270 for 5 hours and everything seemed honkie dorie. so this is promising since i couldn't get anything above 250 before. i'm stepping out to run some arinds w/ my sister, but i'll try bumpin the cpu up to 275 and see how it goes.
