  1. Well I bought some thermal paste. Cleaned my processor/heat sink, and applied the new stuff to it. I saw an average of 4C cooler temp on my cpu. Averaging 48C rather than 52-53C at idle. I can only imaging what the temps might be once I order the new heatsink. I am going to go with the Cooler Master Hyper TX3.
  2. I have seen that cooler on Newegg and it looked great, but it is a little to big for my case/mobo. I was looking at one of these two coolers: RCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 COOLER MASTER Hyper TX3
  3. I want to make a correction. The cpu is at 50C idle and 72C load with it OCed to 2.4GHz on stock cooler.
  4. Well more than likely, my wife's computer will be rebuilt way before I'll be able to do a new pc build. So I'm gonna try and use the least amount of money, but where it counts to keep it going until then.
  5. Yeah, it is ~55C at load and maybe ~43C idle
  6. I was thinking similar to that as well because I would like to get an intel cpu at a later date, but that would be when I get a whole new computer/mobo. At least with an new gpu, I can always swap that into any new mobo at a later date. I'll have to see if I need an upgraded cpu cooler with I try OCing the cpu any higher. Runs around 50C at 2.4GHz. Also, from doing research, the 5770 looks like a great card for the price and should last me quite a while on gaming.
  7. I am wanting to upgrade my either my processor or video card. I don't have a lot of money to spend, so I can really only do one of them. My rig is: Asus M2NPV-VM microATX mobo (AM2+ / some AM3) AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 1.9GHz dual core (OC to 2.4GHz) Sapphire HD 3870 256-bit 512MB GDDR4 PCI-E 2.0x16 RV670 (777MHz / 1126MHz) CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 4GB DDR2 800 SDRAM (PC2 6400) 19" Viewsonic widescreen monitor (1650 x 1050) Cooler Master eXtreme Power Pluss 500W PSU I can play Withcer 2 on low settings, Crysis on High Settings with AA off, and BioShock High, Dues Ex: Human Revolution I was thinking as far as a GPU getting a HD 5770 and if I was going to get a CPU then either an Athlon II X3 455 3.1GHz or Phenom II X3 740 3.0GHz (figure I might as well get a tri core rather than stay with a dual core). Would be better to upgrade the graphics card or the cpu for gaming purposes ( I could OC the cpu more probably up to maybe 2.8GHz). Got about $80-$100 to play with. Thanks.
  8. I just got ATT Uverse 12mb DSL and I am loving the heck out of it. Beats the crap out of Time Warner's roadrunner, which would always have "spotty" internet anyway. The router/wireless device is great, and has an awesome signal. Just a recommendation if anyone has it near there area.
  9. I have always been slightly bias toward the ATI cards. Have to agree with medbor about the ati price/performance. Nvidia has always just seemed, too beefed out for my wants, specially when it came to power consumption and fan noise.
  10. I would go with one of the new Asus P8Z68-pro motherboards and throw in an Intel sandy bridge processor.
