    I've got no idea of "tough"

    i think that there is more than just a few AJ's in here that have probably been in situations very similar (maybe not quick to the extent of having to strap themselfs to the bonet of their vehicle) to that its amazing how adrenaline make a person act though.

    Temp concerns

    ok now i have three diferent readings: all at idle Core temp 0=51 1=47 2=38 3=28 Realtemp 0=40 1=37 2=28 3=18 Speedfan 0=46 1=42 2=33 3=23 Should i just take an average of all of them or can i trust one more than the other like Speedfan for eg.

    Temp concerns

    this is my first complete build that i finished about 6 months ago. EVGA 780i SLI 132-CK-NF78 nVidia nForce 680i SLI SPP Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2500 MHz Oc @ 3.5G @ 466/7.5 1.4V Corsair Twin2x4096-8500C5DF @ 2.2V NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX 512mb x2 @ 819/1955/1175 2x WD RAPTOR 150GB IN RAID 0 CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 1250W Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultra CM stacker 832 Vista Ultimate Professional 64Bit Service Pack 1 my concern is that the core temp shows that its running core1 at 55c at idle to core4 at 35c. when i try to do an OCCT test it stops after about 8minutes as the temp gets to 70c. im running 90+ radiator coolant in the system, and it pritty much runs 24/7. is this the wrong stuff to be using with a water cooled system or am i just doing something wrong, because it should be running alot cooler that right? any advice would be appreciated.

    Temp concerns

    how often do you need to reaply the paste coz its only about 6 months old and water cooled. i take it then that the car radiator coolant is ok to use in it? I dont need to use some special watercooling agent or anything? Edit: could 2 of the sensors be stuck seeing as there is almost a 20 degree difference between the core1 and core4? and if so is there any way of fixing this?

    quick cheer up!

    A little boy walks into his parents' room to see his mom on top of his dad bouncing up and down. The mom sees her son and quickly gets down, worried about what her son has seen. She dresses quickly and goes to find him. The son sees his mom and asks, 'What were you and Dad doing?' The mother replies, 'Well, you know your dad has a big tummy; sometimes I have to get on top of it and help flatten it' 'Your wasting your time,' said the boy. 'Why is that?' the mom asked puzzled. 'Well, when you go shopping, the lady next door comes over and gets on her knees and blows it right back up. '

    Tuesday arvo joke

    heard this joke today thought it was worth sharing . Mick and Paddy were walking home from the pub. Mick says to Paddy, 'I cant be bothered to walk all that way.' 'I know,' says Paddy, 'but we've no money for a cab and we've missed the last bus home.' 'We could steal a bus from the depot,' Mick suggests. They arrive at the bus depot and Mick tells Paddy to go in and get a bus while he keeps a look-out. After shuffling around for ages, Mick shouts, 'Paddy, what are you doing? Have you not found one yet?' Paddy shouts back, 'I cant find a No. 91' . 'Oh , ye thick sod, take the No. 14 and we'll walk from the roundabout .
