Yea the system has a old enermax 480 psu .
I realize that is not a great topic on OCN. But I have been out of the loop for awhile. I attempted to build by granddaughter a cheapo gaming rig....yea I know.... Anyhow after doing some research and newegg reviews...yea I know.... I bought a AmD A6-5400k cpu and a asus A78M mobo. I really wanted to try this new amd cpu/gpu. She likes Terra rising so I thought this system would be ok. The game is playable but barely. So I have a XFX 6570 lying around ...I thought dual...
I replaced the TIM with some IC diamond. The stock TIM was just a big blob!!!! Now I max out in the the low 50's woot. Oh all 3 temps on gpuz are within a couple of degrees.
I don't get a chance to see other gaming setups. I have to rely on what others say and reviews. So my question is my Dell 2407 WFP still current? Would I see a big difference in a newer 1080p monitor? I paid a ton for this monitor when it came out. Now I see 24 inch monitors in the $200 to $300 range. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
Cool thanks....
I had to RMA my card. My old card ran in the high 50's under a load. My new card loads in the low 70's. Using Gpuz....gpu1 is 58, 2 is 56 and 3 is like 72, afterburner show temp at 71 under a load. I am thinking I need to replace the TIM, but ....are there thermal pads on the vrm's that might get damaged when I remove the HSF? Thanks
I need some advice. I am thinking about replacing my 4700X2. I have been looking and reading different threads, but I am just not sure. I was looking at this....
So anybody found one these yet?

Hey a question for you guys? I am getting all my parts together before I start modding. I want to run power supply cables behind the motherboard, I know I need a 4 pin atx cable extension. What about the main 24 pin cable, is it gonna be long enough? Power supply in sig.
