    Cooler Master V10

    i've had one for almost a month now, it's easily mountable vertically without hurting your mobo, but the thing is for 200 u only gain like a few degrees less than TRUE, i hardly think it's worth it =P

    Cooler Master Creates a Monster

    i think the coolermaster v10 only weights 1.9 kilo, isn't that lighter than the TRUE copper? Well i've just purchased the V10 from PC Case Gear, so i shall see how it goes compare to my TRUE.

    120MM fans

    Hey guys, just want a little insight on things here... i had a Noctua NF-P12 i think it supposedly pushes around 53 or so CFM for 1300 rpm. This is my CPU cooler by the way, my TRUE. So i had that for like a good 6 months or so if not more, i was thinking what the hell so i ordered n got a Scythe slip stream 2000rpm that supposedly pushes out 115 or so CFM. When i first plugged the new beast in it does feels like it's pushing out hell lot more air than the noctua, but once i've gotten inside windows check my temp with coretemp (software i know but still) it's telling me not only did it not decrease my temp by a few degree, it's possibly even made it a few degrees higher in all situations~ damn it D: Current Temps are: Core 1 , 2 : idle : low 40 - 45, when it's cooler 38 - 40 Load : under 65 Core 3 , 4 : idle : 38 - 40 , when it's cooler 30 - 35 Load : under 60 or low 60s My rig is Q6600 @ 3.2GHZ, 4gig ddr2 800, nvidia 260GTX+ with a Lian Li PC-A71 case with 6 fans inside the case(not including the cpu cooler fan)... how's the temp?! considering my cpu is o/c'd and im from Brisbane. edit: btw i just changed the thermal paste like a month ago or so.

    120MM fans

    wow so much replies had been added since i last replied, well i just tried done testing my new fans and could not stand the noise LOL. 4 scythe slip stream 1900 rpm + 1 ultra kaze 3000 rpm LOLOLOL got so annoying i took 2 of the slipstreams off within 5 minutes. And as for my case design in relation to someone's comment, it's not so bad, after all it's a Lian Li it's a full tower case so its quite spacious with i believe enough ventilation i suppose. But yeah 5 scythe in one case is too annoying, even now just 3 of them is still so annoying... anyone interested in buying a few scythes LOL ? 20 each, close to brand new, only been used for 5 mins. PRICE NEGOTIABLE LOLOL. If it wasn't for the fact that i have no room to lay my big case flat, i would've purchased a TRUE copper, then i'd get rid off all of the slipstreams n maybe just leave my ultra kaze there. =T EDIT: nah! it is official! I'm gonna sell these fans hahaha too noisy... even just 1 ultra kaze is too noisy.... now its like i can't even hear the computer running! (took all of them off n put back my lian li OEM fans + noctua)

    120MM fans

    thanks man, ordered a ultra kaze and a few more slip stream to see how things go :) i put the slip stream to replace the original case fans from the lian li case, that thing blow tonnes of air into my video card area! good stuff.

    120MM fans

    oh true... thanks, so i should just use the slip stream for like the normal case fan huh? and get an ultra kaze for cpu cooler?
  7. thought i'd give u heads up, picked up a Galaxy GTX 260+ for just over 430 i think it was 435 or something... from PC Case Gear, they're from VIC so thought i'd let you know!

    Upgrading monitor time!

    thx for the advice mate, i ended up getting a T220 with a Galaxy 260GTX+, loving both of them! the only thing is i couldn't get my old MSI software thing off my display properties, it adds like extra tab to them like for overclocking and what not... have no clue how to get rid of them... (from my old video card btw).

    Upgrading monitor time!

    hi guys thinking about upgrading from 19s to 22 time, kinda thinking along the lines of Samsung.... Maybe the 2233BW or the T220 Looks fairly similar to me, specs seems pretty similar too, anyone read up on them? Also, since im going with bigger screen hence higher reso, my 19 only do 1280 atm, if i pulled out a 1680 on the 22", probably should get a new gfx card since i'll lose some fps hey? im on a p35 motherboard running a Q6600 on 3.2GHZ with a 8800GT OC version. what do u guys rkn? Should i get a motherboard since i dont have PCI-E 2 ? or it doesn't really matter? or just f*** it my 8800GT should b alright? thanks in advance!
  10. hi guys i got a Billion 7402NX ADSL2+ modem & router, had it for about a week or two, experienced higher latency in games n what not compare to my crappy siemens 4200 speedstream or whatever it's called LOL. wireless works great though, but i was some what expected my latency to drop lower... not sure why but i just thought it would, certainly helped with my dropout issues, haven't dropped out once since i got this modem, anyone know how to tweak anything to help with latency D: ?

    T200, T190, T220

    Anyone know anything about those monitors coming to the australia market? i mean i know harvey norman's got the T190 and T220, but i'm actually looking for the T200. Did a bit of research online, no luck on any AUS sites. Is it too new at the moment?

    Best Gaming Headset?

    i have a Audio 770, it comfy and big, good but not GREAT, mic can get very loose in terms of the joint where u flick it up and down, it can get all loose just month or two down the track and ur mic starts dropping down all the time even if u moved it up right when ur not using it. i'd say try the sennheiser PC 350
  13. hi guys, im running a similar set up to another threat starter here, Q6600 with thermalright extreme 120 with a noctua 12cm fan, Gigabyte Ep35 Ds3p, 4GB of Team dark DDR2 800 4-4-4-12, case itself has 6 fans, air cooled system here. first time overclocker running 333 x 8 atm, left ram and voltage settings all on auto for the MB to figure itself out. getting about 1.41v vcore atm and after about couple minutes of OCCT stress test i get about low 60 degrees on the first core, rest are still under 60, would u guys think i can lower the vcore somewhat so i can say hit 3.0 or even just 2.8 without it being too hot, i read about how the higher the FSB the higher the voltage or something, so what do u guys recommend? also what should i be setting for the ram as i think i only have a setting for ram called the DRAM multiplier and it starts at 2.5 then 3, 3.5 so on... and how come when i run cpuz, it shows my DRAM frequency as 400 a ratio of 2:3 to the FSB, where as after i OC'd it to 2.66 (333 x 8) it's on 4:5, whats the mathematics behind it? should i just leave all those voltage alone or should i be tweaking them each from DRAM to FSB to the cpu as well so i get a lower temp ??! thanks in advance :D! edit: what i mean by the "what's the mathematics behind it?" for the FSB:ram frequency is like... my ram is DDR800 so does that mean frequecy is half of whatever it says so in this case 400? or... cause when i left it on auto for the overclock it took the ram to i think 1200 (what it said on the MB bios) and it was a 4:5 ratio with the 333

    Question about OC settings

    woops sorry i haven't keep u guys updated with the result, yes running on 3.2GHZ now :P with 1.3v ^^ thanks guys

    Question about OC settings

    thanks mate! gonna do that right now! update: thanks to that guide and everyone else's input im now running at 2997 GHZ =] very stable, that 1.3v suggested in the guide is keeping my temp way under 55, mostly around 45 - 55 on a 30mins OCCT test, pretty happy with the result. just realised that it wasn't only 2.5 that i can set my dram multiplier to, under 3 and 3.5 it actually has 2.0 and 2.4 hiding -_- and also my cpu is a "B" Stepping shown on CPUZ, correct some of my previous mistakes on the past replies ^^ edit again: what if im greedy and want 3.2 D: ? what's the voltage suggestion and the ram multiplier? considering that im setting FSB to 400 i suppose~

    Question about OC settings

    hey yeh i thought so too, i just re-applied thermal paste last night, the TRUE still slides a tiny bit, lmao does that mean its not solid enough, but it seems pretty damn solid though!, if it's not suppose to move even a tiny bit under the X screwy thingy my bob then i guess i didn't screw it down hard enough but as far as i know the screws have refused to turn anymore

    Question about OC settings

    update! just re-applied some thermal paste, an ok generous dose of it =]! not too thick not too thin. (or is it supposed to be thick lol) doing OCCT again on my 2.664GHZ still, haven't tried higher yet, just testing the temps with new grease, tested over 25mins and the temps never went over 66 core 1 and 4 hangs around 63 - 65 after a good 15 minutes, core 2, 3 jumps between 59 - 65, mostly under 63, isn't that abit high considering i've only upped the FSB to 333 from 266? vcore during the test was between 1.39 - 1.41v, is that what's causing the high temp? or does that suggests thats about as far as my computer can take it? can the voltage be tweaked manually so it can run say 1.35 max while still pushing the 2.66 ghz? or should i let my mb to decide on it's own to be safe Update on top of update! : 2.7 atm, running a weirdly 300 x 9 set up i think, 2.7 lmao, temps roughly the same, idle temps r roughly 38s - 45. also i think my cpu revision is "G0" so yep i guess that means it's not the B3 stepping rightttt?

    Question about OC settings

    thanks guys for the reply sorry for late respond just came back from dinner, uhm my stock temp should b at max of about low 50s on load, idle probably late 30s to 40s, my ram multiplier could only go 2.5 so is that ok? dont think it can go 2... it goes 2.5 then 3 then 3.5 @nesquick not sure if mine's B3 stepping or not! how do i check D: bought this about march this year. im currently trying to locate my noctua paste that i seem to misplaced maybe it's time to re-apply, but apart from that, should i just go with 2.5 dram frequency? then muck around with the FSB and kick it up 400? im not sure about 3.2 the last time i tried it was getting quite high 60s lololol. i think i used 400 x 7 or 8 or something the last time. Oh also what about my ram timings? my ram supposedly can go 4-4-4-12 stated on the ram itself, but when i check bios its 5-5-5-18, should i lower it? then leave the "advanced" settings of the dram timings on auto, and voltages all on auto ? or should i be trying to play around with the cpu voltage a bit because im worried about the temps and voltage, on auto it just kicks itself up 1.41 - 1.44 once overclocked :|!
