    Done my upgrades, check em out - Plenty of pictures

    I just completely killed my budget build and went all out with enthusiast stuff. I still have an Intel E8400 and will probably grab a 1600 FSB CPU after they are released. Upgrade info is in pictures:

    I added my CPU and HSF pics, these werent part of the upgrade btw, but I thought I would add them in.





















    Nice stuff XD

    Im currently working on overclocking the ram. It didnt work out of the box at either 1000 or 1150 Mhz, so I am starting at 800 Mhz and going up in 33 Mhz increments and burning it with two 32m Super PI runs each time. Currently up to 933 Mhz and increasing

    My new 24/7 frequencies, I'm happy with these XD



    Yay!

    I'm trying to get it 32m Super PI stable at 500 FSB and 1200 Mhz ram. If I succeed, it will be posted here

    Nice build there! Although, it appears to have more loops in it than a theme park.

    All the info you will need right here:



    Temps go up to 64 degrees on Orthos Small FFT's, 58 Degrees on CPU + Ram blend test @ 4.25 Ghz and 1.35v. The ram is on just 2.15v and 1200 Mhz, but it errors in the stress tests sometimes around 7-9 minutes. 1185 Mhz is 100% stable, 1200 Mhz is stable so far with no problems other then in Super PI and Orthos sometimes.

    Yea lol, 6 heatpipes on the HSF, 1 on the NB, 1 on the SB, 3 on the mofsets, 1 on each graphics card XD

    They work great though. I picked the parts specifically for the copper pipes. I have my Antec Spotcool fan installed over my ram as well now.

    your CPU heatsink might work better if you rotate it 90° clockwise. it has to do with the way heat travels through heat pipes.

    it's his VID, not his vCore. CPU-Z does the same thing for me and i don't know why. it doesn't show my vCore.
