how loud is the mach 2 ?
Vapo EE ES @ 5ghz
P4 EE ES @ 5ghz
2 gig of OCZ DDR2 @ 800mhz 8-2-3-4
X850XT PE (reference)
Asus P5AD2-E 1004 bios
nice wire nest zardon lol crazy OC >
The rig is always apart, no need for tidy cabling, thats why the side panel is off too (and the psu is out the rear) !
side panels are over rated I even picked up a zalman arm cause i saw yours and thought it was cool. :rofl:
looks great !
the zalman arms are handy, ive a few here to clamp on 120mm fans for all systems, always a must for overclocking and helping keep the mofsets and NB/Ram cool. people seem to just concentrate on the CPU and screw the rest.
ya cause of the WC i dont get any air flow to my ram or mosfets :\
well its the same for the 775 mobos, if you remove the cpu cooler you get virtually no air flow as the standard cooler design is outward firing across the mofsets. I sometimes run two of the arms with a couple of (quietish 30-35db 120 mm fans) if the room ambient is up, helps keep things stable especially if you up the chipset voltage at high FSBs.
I need to find the picture of the setup we had when we got it to post(but not boot) @ 2 GHz on a Athlon XP 1800+ via air...it was so ghetto. We were in a basement, and it was like, 32 degrees outside, and we took the A/C duct off the wall and duct taped it to the side of the case and turn it on full blast as cold as it would go...haha
Well, finished my wiring w/my OCZ PSU, and here are the updated pix like i said i'd post them .
Side panel on
Ever since i got my 6800GT along w/my seagates, the molex for my video card and the SATA connector has been touching each other. I've been worrying about the SATA connector snapping off because of that. I need to get me one of those 90 degree SATA cables but i don't want to pay more for the shipping than the cost of the cable itself :hmm:.
EDIT: Cleaned out my VGA silencer .
You need to think about taking that cooler off and cleaning the dirt/dust out bud.....
That's an artic silencer cooler thingy right? Mine get's quite a bit of dust too... And those things are damn annoying to clean! lol
I need to clean mine too. Was thinking of getting a can of compressed air and squirting in between the blades. How do u guys clean your Artic Coolers?
I have a compressor and I use that to clean my Arctic Cooler. I dont even take my gpu out of the comp to do it. I just shoot the air at the fan blades first and then through the back, at the aluminum heatsink. I also use our vacuum just to pick up most of the dust that comes off.
already cleaned it off......edited my post above . Looks alot better......the q-tips i used came out ugly black after i had used them :bleh:.
well, my digicam sucks w/out the flash turned on, and w/ it on it takes sucky night pics. so here goes, the night pics are, obviously, very blurry.
and then some oldies to show off my case a little:
Dude to each his own but IMO you seriously need to clean up those wires
and it's not expensive invest in some wire ties and make it look neat / clean
I just go crazy seeing messes like that. Not to meantion how it adversly effects
your airflow and cooling...
(Just like I do when I see dusty and some timesdirty hardware! LOL keeps names out of it)
heres an starter example of what I mean.... when you lok thew the window neat clean an tidy should be what you see some you can't help but hide and bundle what you can... the system with e board I just RMA'd...
I used the parts to build to go to my parewnts house for my son, and my nephews to use....
What you don't see is the detph of field very well but everything is out of the way pused back as to stay out of the way. Another thing you don't see is the case side that i've modified with an 80mm fan blowing out, and the bay hard drive cooler...
(There is no window so looks are less important here...)
I'll post mine when I get my main rig decided and built...
I'll update this when I get my C strip in th mail had to oder more I useally keep a big wad of it for makeing case holes I cut look alot more attractive and to protect the fingers..
(Btw: thats not dust in pick two its a discoleration when they had spilt a drink and got it inside the computer), of couse now thier not allowed to have drinks near the comupter)
Hey man, I already fixed that! Besides, you shoulda seen it before i started my wiring. I swear i could have started my own little garden inside my case .
was there roses?
