  1. Seeing as you have a H50 did you install it with the radiator fan pumping air INTO the case or did you do it the other way round. Might not be right but it may help.
  2. Just use MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision or NVInspector (Nvidia only). ATiTools is no longer supported and hasn't been updated in almost a year. All three of the tools I listed offer brilliant OC experience allowing you to push your card. Btw which card do you have?
  3. I'd say £120 at best if you're lucky. Any chance I could take that 640GB HD off you?
  4. I was wondering about SLi do both cards have to be in the same generation or series i.e 8800GTX + 8800GTX or does it have to run on the same driver i.e 8800GTX + 8600GT the reason I ask is I wanted to know if it would be possible to SLi my GT220 with a GTS450 when they're released and still have the DX11 from the GTS450?
  5. Oh right thanks for that I'll look at coolermasters offerings in the price range.
  6. Well I'm not too sure on the quality but you could take a look at this from dabs. http://www.dabs.com/products/netgear-stora-500gb-home-media-network-attached-storage--nas--6KTT.html?refs=443340000-443350000-443360000
  7. Thanks zenskas for the advice on cooling I will buy another 120mm fan on the rear and I'm looking into buying a new CPU cooler. Probably one of these http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?product_id=18091&category_id=98&manufacturer_id=0&tid=cnps9700-nt
  8. According to the packaging it is a Xigmatek Pure Black (Classic Chassis) it looks quite nice and well built to say the least. I just checked my Overclock and I just noticed my RAM speed increased too from 400MHz (DDR2 800) to 454MHz. I also forgot to mention I actually got an Asus motherboard not the Biostar nonsense they listed
  9. Make sure you've copied the setup.exe from the sources folder of the original image to the sources folder of the image you are working on.
  10. Brilliant point. Yeah I realize that as the HDD ages it will get weaker and lose performance. SSD's are on my list for future upgrade but that's some time away. I got a nice looking xigmatek case with the PC everything inside is cool. GT220 running idle at 32 Celsius, the clock speeds seem strange though in game it's running 625MHz core, 1414MHz shader core and 486MHz (986MHz effective). Is it normal for the memory clock to be that low? I did also overclock the Phenom from 3.1Ghz to 3.52Ghz without any voltage changes and it's nice and stable at 227MHz x 15.5. So far so good its performing above my expectations.
  11. Just got the new system going. Overclocked the Phenom to 3.62Ghz from 3.1Ghz. I also tried the system in World in Conflict which automatically set everything to max after detecting hardware with 4x AA and Ax AF with DX10 running and it was smooth even on the most demanding map do_spaceneedle. Will have to install CoD4 for further tests. Hard drive also seems snappy and the 4GB DDR2 running like a beast loading maps in less than 10 seconds also booting windows 7 64-bit in less than 20 seconds from when it says Starting windows on the black screen
  12. It's unnatural Oh and PuntoMX what does the L3 cache unlocked in your sig mean? I thought Athlon's don't have L3.
  13. Well coupled with the fact that I also have other responsibilities for the next few months. Like I say I only needed as system for a month then after that my budget will be back at a reasonable £650 approximately. Besides where would be the fun in letting someone else build it when I'm perfectly able to carry out the task.
  14. Sorry CoffeeFiend if it seems that I'm ignoring your recommendations but recently I noticed that I have two project meant to be in for September the 2nd and there is no time to build anything from scratch and I have to stop borrowing my brother's laptop at some point because he will be moving out within the week. Sorry if I seem rude but I just needed advice on a PC that will only last me a month or so to make sure I can pass my course. I apologize to you if I didn't mention that. The idea of me buying junk and improving later on isn't too bad in my view as in September I will be getting more money that I wouldn't need anywhere else. Your recommendations are just about a month ahead of time. On my next build all your advice WILL be taken into consideration.
  15. In the end I decided not to buy the barebone as I noticed one crucial flaw... It's crap. I'm currently considering this, http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?product_id=34692&category_id=677&manufacturer_id=0&tid= It's got 4GB DDR2 with dedicated graphics from a GT220. Dual core Phenom with maybe the prospect of unlocking the other 2 cores. Great price for me to survive till september where I will upgrade to DDR3 and AM3 with maybe a new Graphics setup which will depend on how the GT220 behaves.
  16. Just been to a local PC store which is run by a friend of mine and he'd be willing to trade the 4GB DDR2 800 MHz for 4GB DDR3 1333 MHz as long as I pay an extra £5.50 which isn't bad. Then a new AM3 motherboard with SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0 for £78 or £36 if I part-exchange it for the AM2+ one that comes with the barebone PC.
  17. Problem is that I've been having problems with finding decent builds for under £300 which is my absolute maximum budget whereas by September that will jump up to around £650 which is why I'm looking for something with bags of potential. I was hoping to buy the AMD II X4 barebone adding this http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Components/Graphics-Nvidia/Nvidia9800Series/Novatech/9800GT1GB.html to it with a new PSU of course. Then after summer buy a AM3 motherboard with full blown DDR3 1333mhz Ram.
  18. For graphics I'm looking at a 9800GT or a GTS250 maybe, I see their prices are down to £90 for either. Yeah the 400w PSU isn't going to be enough I will look into a 550+ PSU. Although I haven't had the best of luck in the past with PSU's.
  19. Hello good people of msfn. I was wandering if anybody could tell me whether this set-up is any good? http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Barebones/Novatech/BB-6354G.html or this http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Barebones/Novatech/BB-654G43.html I am looking for a system that can run MS Office and have some gaming pedigree but for under £300 not including the graphics card, I will sort that out at a later date.
  20. Hi there I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on how I would clean what looks like paint from the battery connector of a Sony Ericsson k660i the problem is that I have the phone constantly switching off randomly and I believe this maybe down to the odd looking grey/blue substance on the connector.
  21. @biatche: those are localised themepacks.
  22. You will need to use the Win6x registry tweak. Basically download this. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=27216 Extract it to a folder then change the .exe's name to tweak.exe . Load a cmd window from the location of the files you extracted by holding shift and right clicking the window and it should be in the context menu. When the cmd is open type in "tweak.exe /m" without the quotes then it will ask for the location of the MOUNTED wim.
  23. Going old school tonight with Half Life 2 found my orangebox CD . These days im mostly on BF2 and World in Conflict Modern Warfare 2.0 BETA.
  24. Thanks for this aviv does this mean removal of IE8 via vlite is do-able now ?
