  1. oops accidentally double post
  2. yeah i checked the list, and the lists only shows mobo's made by asus.. So i don.t know if other brands would fit.. But it did write that it's compatible with 775, although that's processor.. Lol.. So i was just enquiring here since you guys would know quite a bit more than i do. Asus hasn't replied me yet, been nearly a day..
  3. i was wondering what would be the effect on my system, using a xfx nforce motherboard which supports up to 8gb 1200mhz sli ram with 1.8v output slots. I'm using 4x ocz platinum edition ddr2 pc2 8500 1066 mhz 2.1-2.3v. I just realised my mobo would be giving out only 1.8v, and how would it hit my ram since my ram would need 2.1v. Would i get lowered performance? Would it spoil some things? I heard of people using something like this and it works but i have no clue whatsoever as to how or why. I'm guessing sinbe this is a board that allows us to adjust some timings, i could tweak the voltage output and give my ram what it needs, 2.1v instead. Is that right? Could anyone help with some explanation and how it would work out? Sorry i'm a learning oc'er and this is my first time doing this. And also if anyone can tell me if the new asus lion square third party cooler will fit on my mobo, considering the huge heatsink my 780 currently has built in. I just read the reviews on atomic magazine and i loved it, but worried that it might not fit properly and thus create a counter reaction because it's actually too close to the heatsink in some ways. I'm not very sure, it's just a made up theory. Can someone verify this? Thanks in advance.
  4. okay.. Sorry.. I just love nvidia.. Hehe.. But i agree that it's really expensive compared to ati, and the performance are nearly on par with each other.. And would you guys recommend any heatsinks? I was thinking of the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 or go for the asus lion square (just read about that from the atomic mag i bought today, we're one month slow which really s*x). i'd prefer a system with nice lights in it, since i have a semi-window on one side. any nice recommendations for led-lit-items? its nice to look at too =)
  5. well, i can't return the two things that i've bought(mobo and ram) cos it's already past 3 days. I haven't bought the rest though and i would certainly rethink about the processor. Actually, i have.. Also, I've read reviews from the web about the xfx geforce 260/216 core black edition, it really loses out to the 4870x2 but it does really well on it's own for some thing cheaper i guess. Even better than the 280's in alot of areas. This is for the black edition ones though..and it isn't that hot. i'm not really sure if it will be safe to have this system set up with the psu and casing i had in mine, without third party coolers or heat sinks. However, i love the advice on the processor and i really appreciate it cos now i'll be looking for the later editions of the quad like the q9xxx stuff.. So the haf932 and the psu will fit this system properly? It might be over kill but i really love how the casing looks and also how it's still as efficient as how great it looks and how high the price is. Lol.. No offence, but i'm more of a intel and nvidia fan. I know the 4870x2 are now considered top of the hill, but i just can't seem to get myself interested in ati no matter how hard i've tried to convince myself. Reviews, friends, testing, and still i can't.. I've been in love with nvidia the first time i used it, and i've been using it ever since. I may need to get some counseling haha!
  6. I'm fairly new here and i loved how the pros answer to questions in details, so i'm gonna stay here and ask some questions, putting my full trust into your hands =D i'm building a very new pc for my christmas holidays (yes, its a gift to myself.. budget came from my whole year savings *pout*). the only problem is, i dont know how much power i would need to run this system and also if just using cooling from stock+casing(CoolerMaster HAF 932) would be sufficient. I am badly in need of help.. these are my system specs.. MOBO - XFX MB-N780-ISH9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI Intel Motherboard *Bought* Ram - 4x OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 / 1066MHz / Platinum XTC / NVIDIA® SLI-Ready Edition 5-5-5-15 2.1-2.3v *Bought* Proc - Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 GPU - XFX NVIDIA Geforce GTX260 (Core 216) 896MB GDDR3 BLACK EDITION HDD - Western Digital Caviar 1TB 32mb SATAII DVD - Pioneer DVD+/-RW 20x12x20x Dual LayeR DVDReWriter Drive/DVD-RAM/SATA Casing - Cooler Master HAF Chassis RC-932-KKN1 P4 ATX Casing Heatsink - Xigmatek HDT- s1283 PSU IN MIND - Corsair Tx 650w This is gonna be the first time i'm building a "semi-enthusiast" set and will be doing some MINOR overclocking to this system, but before i do i would love some tips and advice on whether or not it will work out. Thanks in advance for all comments, be it good or bad, and i would like to know if you guys have any more ideas that i can add or change in this system. *UPDATE* thanks to the help of our fellow atomicans, i've decided to stick to using Intel Core2Quad Q9550 as my processor (double the price of q6600, but well worth it since its based of the newer penryn chip. and also i've added xigmatek HDT-s1283 to my system list!
