  1. Airflow has all been planned out already, the dirty air is all taken care of, and the most pass overs any of the air has to do is 2 which is the used air comming out from the CPU heatsink then passing over 3 capacitors (And depending on the brand, and type of caps used they have a thermal rating of upto 85c sometimes a little more) and straight out the rear exhaust. And that is a very very small time space between the air comming out from the CPU heatsink and into the exhaust. Every cable is totaly out of the way wether its a IDE, sata or any other type. Everything big or small has been thought of for the best air flow and getting the key parts of the rig cool and stable under big overclocks.
  2. You should come over to http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com and ask, theres people there with that motherboard who can give you all the info you need.
  3. "you really only need a rear exhaust, a side fan wont help that much either" Having just a rear exhaust and the CPU cooler is the worst idea ive heard of. (No offence) The 250mm side fan is working a treat i took it round to a reletive (He's been workign with all things electrical for 50 years, amongst many other things) and he did some tweaking to it. @Zxian, The 250mm fan is placed so the dead spot of the fan is were the CPU cooler draws its air in from so it doesnt hurt the performance, the CPU cooler (Artic freezer pro 7) then throws its hot air out to the rear exhaust. As any1 knows hot air rises so wether its a little hole in the top of the case or a big hole it all makes a difference. (Unless your rig is overclocked or alot of components/high end parts some people dont notice due to not alot of heat being generated) The Filter grill and 120mm fan on the top are placed more over the 5.25 rack then near the mobo so as any hot air pockets coming from the 4HDD's or the DVD/CD drives gets traped it can be exhausted thru there. I took the front bezel of the case and modded were the fan goes, it was made to take either a 90mm fan or a 120mm fan but bad desgn meant that the fan then had a mesh right in front of it and then another mesh on the front bezel before it got to the cold air. So now the inner mesh has gone and a 120mm fan placed in. All are rigged up to the multi power port and then to a custom control panel which allows me to alter the RPM and switch fans on/of, i fitted an Akasa AK-210 northbridge cooler (The stock northbridge heatsink was useless) and it makes more noise on its own then the 3 enermax ultra's the side fan and the CPU cooler put together!! Ive got the rig overclocked Intel core 2 duo E4300 @ 3.34Ghz - idle 25c, load 37c
  4. Im in the midle of building a rig (its done, just got to get a new PSU before i overclock it) and got the Artic freezer pro 7 which works great idle temps are at 8 -14c and under full load 17-25c
  5. Hey, Im currently building my new rig and rarther then buy a new case im going to mod the hell out of the one i have which is a XBLADE First of is the side window which at the moment has a 80mm fan on it, ill be cutting it and putting 1 of these 250mm Fans on there instead. Then on the rear & front ill be putting Enermax ultra's and on the top of the case ill be cutting a hole and placing 1 of these filters along with another Enermax fan on it. All hooked up to an Alphacool mp What would be a good setup for the 3 enermax fans? (Eg, front sucker, top sucker, rear - exhaust) ??? Thanks
  6. Hey all, i finished setting up my new rig yesterday and have hit some issues The rig Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 "LGA775 Allendale" 1.80GHz (800FSB) Corsair 1GB DDR2 XMS2-5400C4 TwinX (2x512MB) Gigabyte GA 965P DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard Powercolor radeon PCI-E X600 I was doing some tests with ortheos to see the temps etc, do these look ok http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l144/wic...stTemps0001.jpg At the moment in coretemp its readin core 0 temp 36°c - core 1 temp 37°c. Arent hey a little to high given that im using the freezer 7 heatsink? Do you think i migh of used to much thermal paste? (if that could make the temps to high) Yet in easytune5 which came with the mobo its reporting cpu temp as 19°c Also ive had this BSOD happen twice SCREENIE It happend once yesterday when i was j ust browing round my HDD, and again today when i went to open coretemp. So both times i wasnt pushing the system or anything.
  7. Hey, ive beeen using my latest unatended build now for the last 3 months or so, and have installed it 4 to=ime (maybe a few more) fine on single core pc's. Now yesterday i went to install it on a Core 2 duo e4300 and atthe 39 minutes section (pretty much as soon as the GUI apears after dos) is pops up error missing file and has to cancel install. So what is it that can cause this? I did strip some stuf out using nlite but nothing that effetcs dual cores to the best of my knowledge.
  8. Hey all, ive just orderd the parts for my new rig of overclockers.co.uk and want some help with overclocking it. Heres what parts ive got comming Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 "LGA775 Allendale" 1.80GHz (800FSB) Corsair 1GB DDR2 XMS2-5400C4 TwinX (2x512MB) Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard Its all due to be deleverd on tuesday morning, ie got 4 fans in the case so theres enough cooling so were to start? Thanks.
  9. Check out maplin they have loads in *find them on google*
  10. lol stupid sensors, if possible i want to avoid removing the heatsinks, at the moment the gpu sensor is turned of for now and the cpu sensor is above the heat sink with the end shoved between the grill on the heatsink but its not doin much good
  11. hey all, new toy came 2day aerocool cool-panel ive set it all up etc now im just working out the best places to put the temp sensor wires i want 1 on the gpu and 1 on the cpu any1 know the best way of doing this?
  12. Using ATI's catalyst is usauly fairly simple just go thru the display settings and set the tv as the primary display and in clone mode then it should work fine
  13. Nothing its a good emu but si is jnes, fwnes, nesticle, rocknes etc theres no "best" nes emu just some work best with certain roms eg battle of olympus plays perfectly on fwnes and jnes but badly on alot of other nes emu's
  14. i doubt its got anything to do with the air hose, if anything its the settings within the bios are still set to take your old cpu so the need ressetting and then changeing to your new cpu settings, a bios update would be the first thing to do
  15. although looking back thru the magazine now theve done all this with stock heatsink and a case thats got no were near as much cooling as mine and as for "back then" it was in this months eddition of pcformat magaizne, yeah amd 64 x2 was my origanal choice anyway just seeing that in the magazine made me ponder
  16. hey, ok it just went click in my head that mines an AMD and id ned a new board for some reason i didnt click on and posted here then lol thats what happens after staying up till 5am and looking at cpus whilst half asleep
  17. hey all, ive found a Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core RET 64 bit LGA 775 2 x 2.66 GHz 2MB for 50 pound an ive heard its overclockable to 4.2ghz but would this go in my motherboard or would i need a new motherboad to go with it? *check my sig for my mobo info*
  18. hey, ive made a silent istall for this but how can i have it so its the default program for opening .pdf files automatically without haing to open the program first and set it to the default pdf viewer?
  19. ive been puzling over this for a while now, i made a custom silent install for it but i dont want to configure it on eery install i want it too hae the ustom folders already in the send to menu the reg file for the program only contains a few small settings that dont concern this so weres the info stored? theres no other config files
  20. scan.com, eubuyer, ebay, are the shops i usau8lly shop round but if you know any good shops i dont mind mind hey puntomx p's running stable at 2.4 now dude weill hae to organize HL2DM sometime
  21. hey, yeah ill be needing a motherboard, processor, ram and a psu unit, ive already got writers, and a spare case for it all to go in, price range is at minimum 200 pound and possibly 350 pound depending on how things go
  22. hey all, right nearer christmas im thinking of getting a amd 64 dual core processor and motherboard to build a new rig with, whats a good dualcore 64 processor for overclocking im looking round the 80/130 pound price range
  23. Hey, ive overclocked it look down there , many thanks to puntoMX for all hes help and knowledge
  24. hey all, ive got a amd sempron socket 754 2800+ after doin some searching ive found posts of people overclocking this chip from the stock 1.6ghz speed to 2.0ghz how would i go about doing this? heres my exact system specs Field Value CPU Properties CPU Type AMD Sempron 2800+ CPU Alias Venice-256 S754 CPU Stepping DH-E6 CPUID CPU Name AMD Sempron Processor 2800+ CPUID Revision 00020FC2h CPU Speed CPU Clock 1600.0 MHz CPU Multiplier 8.0x CPU FSB 200.0 MHz (original: 200 MHz) Memory Bus 160.0 MHz DRAM:FSB Ratio CPU/10 CPU Cache L1 Code Cache 64 KB (Parity) L1 Data Cache 64 KB (ECC) L2 Cache 256 KB (On-Die, ECC, Full-Speed) Motherboard Properties Motherboard ID 63-150-0000010-00101111-110305-nVidia$K8N62150_K8NF4G-SATA2 BIOS P1.50 Motherboard Name ASRock K8NF4G-SATA2 (2 PCI, 1 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 1 CNR, 2 DDR DIMM, Audio, Video, LAN) Chipset Properties Motherboard Chipset nVIDIA GeForce 6100, AMD Hammer Memory Timings 2.5-3-3-8 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) Command Rate (CR) 2T SPD Memory Modules DIMM1: Nanya M2U51264DS8HC3G-5T 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz) BIOS Properties System BIOS Date 11/03/05 Video BIOS Date 05/03/29 DMI BIOS Version P1.50 Graphics Processor Properties Video Adapter ATI Radeon X600 (RV370) GPU Code Name RV370 (PCI Express x16 1002 / 5B62, Rev 00) GPU Clock 398 MHz (original: 398 MHz) Memory Clock 202 MHz (original: 203 MHz) thanks
