Why ? I think its time you went with some watercoling now
Sorry to hear about all the **** you went through though.
man i'd really love to go watercooling, but i'd really need an old machine to do my testing on first. I've never watercooled anything and I don't want to start on my main pc that i've JUST got finished.
I'm thinking I might just get the TR 120 extreme with my next order, I need a 1TB drive for my main pc (all these HD movies are destroying my disk space :rolleyes:) and i'm probably going to get a new monitor. Although i'm thinking this just might be a CPU that runs hot. At the moment its not a problem as I haven't played a game yet that slows this machine down at 1080p with everything maxed (the DiRT demo had me worried but the retail version, patched, seems to be a lot better optimized) but in the future i'd like to be able to overclock it and bleed some extra performance out of it.
Oh and I ended up using your method of applying the TIM. I tried putting onei line down the middle, 2 lines down the middle, then tried your method of smudging the TIM using your finger in a plastic bag. All methods showed no difference in temps. The best I can get with balcony door open and the room so cold I need to wear a jumper is 38'c idle with all the fans on max.
wow man i new quads got hot but not that hot !!!
i say watercooling and a new case as the p180 really is a anit watercooling case
maby a lian li v2000 so you can have to matching cases;)
btw the show on ur sig is from an anime called basslisk i think watched it awhile back.
I just picked up a Coolermaster Cosmos, not bad at all.
It already has space for the watercooling tubing and theres plenty of room in there.
Hisssss. That case and me do not see eye to eye at all.
Ill post up pics in a few days, JUST FOR ANTI!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D
sweet... please do. This is more than likely going to be my next case so the more pics the better. Also detail how easy it was to work and maybe post a size comparison with something. Also detail how well it copes with noise.
Side by side with the 180
I also picked myself up a B3 Q6600 today And i plan on overclocking it to 3ghz or above. Ill let you know how my temps are compared to yours when it arrives.
I also installed the nvidia network manager thing, and i had the exact same CRC problems you have.
