    Bottleneck/overclocking question

    got my e6550 @ 3.0Ghz @ 1.42v w/- aftermarket cooling all i did was up the fsb to 430. left everything auto with stock cooling ran stable at 2.66Ghz specs in sig
  6. How's it goin' all just want to know if anybody has any experience with fitting a Zalman 9500A Cooler on an ASUS P5Q mainboard i.e. will it fit will the highrise heatsinks am looking at upgrading to this board thanx
  7. Update Got board today. yes the 9500a cooler does fit. but i had to rotate the upper mount plate 180*, because the heatsink and transistors on the back side wouldn't allow the clip to go down far enough. Only down side is i had to use the black set of ram slots because the hyperx ram with heatspreader won't fit into the yellow slot. no big deal (unless you're using all 4).
  8. ok thanx fellas will be upgrading soon

    480W'll cut it, yeah?

    according to corsair http://www.corsairmemory.com/psufinder/default.aspx 450-550 should do it

  23. thanx for the advice i've always had nvidia cards (don't know why). but now that i've become a bit of a gamehead i want something faster and as i'm also a scrooge i want good bang for buck and after reading a lot of forums i find that a lot of gamers are using ati 48xx so i might jump ship and give ati a go thanx coneman
