  1. I'm pretty sure the core contacts fan is 20dB's on low fan speed and around 50 on high.
  2. Geez I wouldn't be going up to 1.5v but I guess thats me.
  3. Have you reseated the HS with new TIM?
  4. I installed a new CPU a while ago and the temps just stay at 43 on every program (core temp, real temp, HW monitor, speedfan). This didn't bother me to much because I wasn't able to OC but now I have my new motherboard I can. Just thinking now I'm pretty sure this might have happened a bit after I put in the new CPU. The BIOS reads the temperature. On HW Monitor the temperatures under ITE IT87 TMPIN0 min 26 max 52 (52 at 100% load) Under ACPI THRM min 27 max 51 Under Core 2 Duo E7400 core0 min 43 max 43 core1 min 43 max 43 So is there anyway this can be fixed? And those ACPI and ITEIT87 seem like right temps for a CPU could they be? Thanks
  5. Thanks for the info, I will definetly be getting it soon and yeah $30 just for better cooling seems like a rip off not like I will need it anyway. Thanks mate.
  6. Since my current motherboard is playing up I am preparing to buy another one. I think the DFI X-48 boards seem pretty good and very cheep. If I do get it I think I will go for the LT since its $30 cheeper then the UT. Please note I am in Australia so prices are different, the DFI LanParty-LT X48-T2R costs $195 so it is cheap. I have read that they are moderate X-48 overclockers and that is all I need. Reviews seem to rate this board pretty good so it's looking pretty good. So I was just wondering what people thought about the DFI board.
  7. The leds on the fans are to bright for when I'm watching movies/games so I hooked up a switch for the LEDs on the 230mm to the 3.5" bay cover on the front. It looks and works great and I bought a switch that can switch off 4 things whatever there called. But I don't know how to remove the front fan to modify it. The manual dosent say anything about it and when you remove the HDD cage you can see the screws holding it but they are back to front so I can see the thread. So anyone know how your supposed to get this fan out? EDIT** Nevermind I figured it out.
  8. I can no longer change the FSB:DRAM ratio if I do it wont even boot and I have to reset the CMOS. This is not good it means I can't even overclock past something like 3.0GHz Before thinking about a new motherboard should I flash the BIOS? As a last resort. Does this have any chance of fixing it?
  9. Yes I know I wouldn't listen to his advice. I was trying to point out how stupid it was apparently it didn't come across that was, don't worry I will try harder to make it clear next time.
  10. Is that really good advice? I have an E2220 which is basicaly the same chip and I had to up vcore to 1.5v to get 3.5GHz with Max load at 70 C let alone 3.7GHz. So when your going to 3.7GHz you don't even have to worry about temperatures?
  11. Read tutorials and don't start threads like this if you havent tried to OC to 3.7GHz.
