    Doctor Who

    40+ years of watching Dr Who this will be a testing time for me with the next Dr,how will she stack up against all my past Dr's?will she be worthy to be added to my dvd collection,of every episode on dvd?mmmm only time will tell.. So is this the last regeneration if in keeping with the movie from 1996??which states there will be 13 Dr,s..in theory we have had more tht 13 Dr,s to date,so i wonder.

    OBA "osama bin athlon"

    my name is Thomas most ppl here knew me as shirl,its funny i was sitting in front of my pc and i thought about a old mate "OBA",Douglas,i met this bloke by chance in 1999 i bought some parts off him,we started talking about pc,s i was a newbie had no idea what i was doing,he took me under his wing and taught me the fundamentals of building pc.My passion for pc,s and overclocking from that meeting has never dwindled Doug took me under his wings and taught me how to over clock change timings and destroy a few parts along the way ,lol, Just wanted to say i miss him heaps our drinking session,his fav coopers green,and our chats about pc,s his family he loved his girls heaps and his grand kid..i totally loved his music collection some classic music. Mate where ever you are take care miss ya heaps mate.. Thomas aka "shirl" yeah i forgot the A in the title..

    I just scored a virgin 2600K

    i see you got the 2600k now crank it up mate and see what it will do.
  14. yeah i had a problem with my 6970 as Dasa has stated about mounting i pulled it apart the thermal paste was like totally dried out so i cleaned it and replaced it with Artic silver 5 temps dropped by 10 degrees gaming which was quite nice the noise you heard could have been the wires that go into the pcb of the vid card which are located next to the fan..
  15. might have to bring my 6970 over for a crossfire bench mark session yeah i know i,ll bring the beers too lol

    Pre-Order for amd fx.

    yeah i was hoping to get a new bulldozer as my mobo only needs a bios update,mmm,well after seeing alot of the reviews on line etc,i think i will stick with my 1090t@4g 24/7 stock volts if and when prices do come down yes i will buy 1 to play with atm i,m all good.
  17. what fan speed are your cards running at?you can change your fan speeds in catalyst,yes a fan would work as is allready mentioned,you could allways make a small cardboard shroud or make 1 from plastic and fit it over the fan inlet,and have it suck in cooler air.
