    Radiator question

    I'm looking at running a pair of these fans http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10435/fa...l?tl=g36c15s714 So I don't think airflow etc is going to be much of an issue. Is it worth going push pull config? I've tried it in the past with a smaller 2*120 rad used to cool an i7 920 @ 4ghz and didnt really notice any difference in temp and that was with 4 110cfm 2000rpm 120mm fans. The 920 would still run upwards of 75-80c lol. Man that sucker was a hot chip. The way i've got my rig setup atm is under a window that can be blacked out if its getting to hot outside, primarily because the side of the house its on gets alot of cool breeze, and having the rad setup under the open window I've seen some crazy low temps. A few months back I was downloading some things so I left the computer on when I went out for tea, and by the time I got home a few hours later it was getting really cold outside, I checked on the comp and the lowest core was idleing at 0 degrees lmfao. I hope i'm not being to much of a pain in the arse, but there is still alot I dont know about watercooling, but would love to learn about

    Radiator question

    Thanks for the fast reply guys. I'm only adding the mb into the loop as I live in a fiarly warm environment (north vic on the nsw border and were allready seing temps in the mid to high 30's) and i'd like to keep everything as cool as possible. I'm not to worried if it restricts the flow alil and raises temps on the cpu/gpu alil. With my current w/c setup the mb hasnt really made a difference on temps. When I first got the setup up and running I ran a few o/c benchies on it to see what it was capable of and with the cpu @ 4.4ghz ( I havent got it to run stable at anything higher yet) the temps were only maxing at 55-60c. So if the radiator is going to be plenty overkill would it have enough in reserve to cool a second gtx 680? As I may possibly go that route in another year or so when I can get a second one cheap enough Also with the distilled water is primochill uotpia ok to mix with it? I'm running distilled water atm with a silver coil in it, but I dont want to add one into the new setup when its up and running as i dont want to damage the frozen q resevoir

    Radiator question

    Well guys it has come time for me to replace my aging and tired watercooling loop. (it's about 4 years old). Ive been busy assembling and buying parts for a new rig to replace my old i7920 setup as its getting finiky and having alot of issues. My question is that I now have a i5 3570k, asus rog maximus v formula and a gtx g80. How big a radiator will I need to effectively cool these compnents down? I'm not overclocking atm as there is no need as the system is very powerful allready, but dont mind doing abit of oc here and there for benchmarking and to show off my rig. The radiator I'm looking at purchasing is a 2*200mm from www.frozencpu.com http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14803/ex...?tl=g30c95s1586 Will it be enough to cool everything down if overclocked? It's going to be mounted externally so there are no worries about space requirement lol. The rest of the watercooled loop will include xspc raystorm cpu block xspc gtx680 waterblock Fusion thermo asus waterblock (pre built onto the motherboard allready) Frozenq liquid fusion dual bay resevoir (with a pump mount) koolance pmp450-s pump (with 24v controller) 3/8'' primo chill red uv tubing 3/8'' compression fittings ek blood red coolant

    adsl 2 speeds

    sorry to drag up an old thread but i thought i'd share my stories lol.Ever since moving to swan hill and relocating my telstra adsl2+ as per my threads above i was getting all sorts of dropouts and my speeds went from 13-14mbits to lucky to acheive 2.5mbits. I cracked the shits as anyone naturally would and started going around telstra with the ombudsmen. Long story short telstra actually told me they couldn't provide me the speeds they were advertising and to change providers. Which I did only after I got them to reedfund me a few months worth of internet and to cancel my contract :). So I've now switched providers and what do ya know, my speeds are through the roof again, no dropouts or anything. Still on the same exchange and telstra owned lines, none of them were touched. Im now getting 18808kbps attainable speeds, usually topping out around the 16-17000 kbps. Makes me laugh the fact that with telstra I had shit speeds and dropouts all the time, but switching provider has solved all my issues, plus to boot i'm only paying $2 a month more and am getting unlimited downloads, where telstra would only offer me 200gb lol. I'm loving the new speeds. Best part is i'm less then 100m from the exchange so my speeds are allways over 10mbit :)
  6. Thanks aliali for your help. I did abit more digging around tonight with settings etc, and i found a few more network locations to remove that may have been confusing the laptop. So i deleted them and reset the network adaptor and ran the internet trouble shooting thingy and it came up saying that the issue was with the ip adress but it fixed it for me. I'm now typing this directly on the laptop lol. Thanks again for helping
  7. Even with the laptop connected directly to the modem it still comes up as unidentified public network. Even if I try disabling the wireless and telling it that its a home network it defaults to the unidentified public network.

  9. Greetings to all. Recently I changed my isp from telstra to another company. I also had to change my modem as the one I had was hard locked to telstra. Since then I've been having trouble connecting my laptop to the home network or even the internet. I have it setup so that the modem goes into a network router and then out to the computers via ethernet cable. My problem is that the connection keeps defaulting to a unidentified public network and wont connect to the home group or the internet. I have tried deleting all previous network locations and everything is set to auto detect/config for the ip4/ip6 settings I have tried resetting bith the modem and the ethernet port on the laptop. Every other network setting is set to auto detect or alloq network sharing/finding. The laptop is running win 7 ultimate 64bit Sorry if what i've typed is abit vauge but i'm clueless when it comes to networking lol. If it helps i previously had the laptop set to use the wireless from the old modem, but the new one doesnt have wireless. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Show us your Rig

    My build pics over the years This is my build in its few stages over the last 3 or so years. Originally started off in a antec 1200 case with an i7 920 c0/c1, gigabyte x58 extreme mobo, 6gb ocz reaper 1866mhz ram, gtx 295, x-fir pro gamer sound card, enermax galaxy 1000w psu, all watercooled. Now it basically has the same except for a 1gb gtx 460 (with custom air cooling) asrock extreme 3 mobo and a 6 hdd raid 0 setup and an ocz 750 fatality psu and a coolermaster haf 932 case

    Need advice for buying 24" Monitor

    Will be good to hear your thoughts on the monitor, I'm looking at buying a new one soon and have been looking into the dell's quite abit. My good old samsung 226bw has served me faithfully for years, but she is getting alil tired and worn out. I have to up the brightness in almost every game I play as its getting alil dark but makes playing games like the fear series really fun at night when you literally cant see anything except for what the flashlight shows lol.

    Atomic Superpi Scores V5

    nice work mate. thats very decent for a 920! Thanks mate. Im amazed at what this old co/c1 920 is able to acheive. Just wish I had my first mobo for her still. I had a gigabyte x58 extreme, that board was the best overclocker lol. This asrock extreme 3 that I'm running now doesnt like ram running much over 1600mhz :(

    http://imageshack.us/f/705/desktop2011121511230118.jpg/ Did a better run this morning with the cpu @4.2ghz and ram @ 1600mhz 7.7.7.21.1t timings Super pi 1m and maxxpi 8m

    http://imageshack.us/f/64/desktop2011121416065270.jpg/ Better late then never lol. Chip and ram can do alot better but this mobo sucks for oc'ing. Have had the cpu stable @4.3ghz and the ram @ 1910mhz 9,9,9,31,2t. But this is my 24/7 stable oc and on a bloated os, still not bad considering the ram is only running @ 1520mhz 7.7.7.21.1t timings though :)

    Video crad opinions?

    Yeah I'd go with the gainward 3gb phantom card. Gives more fram buffer for high res games and high levels of aa and af. Plus theyre good cards, sold a gainward gtx 460 1gb gs glh to a friend of mine about a year ago and its been running overclocked (above what gainward set it at) basically the whole time and hasnt once had anny issues with overheating or going bad.
