I'll OC soon enough, but I'll be on stock cooling for awhile, until my friend comes home from Chicago. He's bringing a 775 retention module XP 120. Hopefully it'll fit he mother board If it dooesn't, I'll guess I'll go HSF hunting.

Finally got thru 2 ocuk on fone, my order has not been shipped yet. They say they're having a prob with royal mail & this is why the order didn't go out. I've got them to upgrade me to parcel post after i got mad with them on the fone. Should have it fri. So much for ordering on the 6th july 2 beat the rush.

Of course, it's so obvious!
Increase power to the thermodynamic stabilisation matrix!

overclockers are bad to deal with (well they were) i had to ring them before about 1.5years ago, rang about 10 different days at different times and never got through, so i gave up and cancelled the order

If you need higher res/different angles, let me know



It may be friday before it sees any action. OCUK told me they shipped me the motherbaord yesterday, but parcelforce only picked it up this morning.

That actually looks like a decent enough heatsink, very like the zalman one. Have you connected it up to see how loud it is??

DJMarkus tells me it's the same as the one he got with his 805. I think he got it up to almost 4GHz, but it's noisy when on full. As sure, i'll see if i can connect it up now...
Actualy, it's ot bad at all on a 3 pin header, but it's a 4 pin header it's supposed to go to.

It looks ok, not exactly precision engineering though. You can see bends and pits on some of the fins.

Well, it seems they lost my original order, but I ordered over the phone and my order is now at the picking station..

Overclockers are great IF things go smoothly
