  1. This is more out of curiosity about those who use naked CPUs. I ran across this link recently and I thought I'd present this to you all here and and see how it compares to you various naked cpu users in going about installing and using heatsinks over your processors. Feel free to explain the process you go through (if you wish) or perhaps just evaluating and commenting about your thoughts on the article. I thought this would be the best place for the thread but if someone has a recommendation or suggestion for it to go elsewhere then I shall move it.
  2. Yep, Thunderbird can do that. I personally use FF2. I don't hate IE7 or Opera I'm just really used to using Firefox now and I like it. I actually haven't even tried out IE7 yet. I tried out Opera for a little while once but it didn't appeal to me as much but I only tried it for a little while and I didn't give it enough time to judge it that well.... so yeah, I'm just going to stick with Firefox. Maybe sometime down the road I'll try out IE7 and Opera (again, for a longer period of time) but until then its all Firefox.
  3. I have been looking at Zalman's website about it too. For some reason I thought that the way the Ultra D's socket is that it would make me go through the heatpipes to push air out the back but then I looked again and it should go just fine. I guess I got confused at first. :eek2: Thanks for your help!
  4. Hey Suedenim, Take a look at this video card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814150202 It's the XFX GeForce 7900GS factory overclocked to 525/1550 with a rebate. I just picked one up myself a couple days ago and I can't wait to try it out. Pretty good deal for the performance I think if you aren't playing on higher resolutions than 1280x1024 which is what I play at. I hope this might help you decision making.
  5. Those heatpipes are sexy. I'm about to order the Opty 165 in my sig from newegg in a couple hours. *crosses fingers* I'm hoping for a good stepping but we'll see. I'll keep you all posted.
  6. Done and done, thanks for your help! I checked out the list and I think that my power supply should be good enough for my set up?
  7. Thanks for your help! I wrote up a small signature to hold me off until after I have put it all together and done some stress testing and overclocking. Do you think the information I've provided for now is enough for the time being?
  8. Hello everyone, I'm about to purchase a new heatsink for my CPU to replace the stock cooler and I am curious because since the Ultra D has the memory sockets on the bottom of the board instead of near the I/O ports like in the Expert or on the other side of the CPU socket can heatsinks such as the Zalman CNPS9500 be rotated so that instead of the fan blowing the air in the opposite direction of the RAM it can blow the air towards the back of the case and towards the I/O ports and the back case fan? I apologize, I know I need to make a signature with my specifications in it and I will do so as soon as I have finished putting my computer together. Thanks.
