thank you. about the dvd/cd combo optical drive what im concerned about is any compatability issues with windows 7 64bit. ive read a lot of reviews from people who have bought certain ones that dont work correctly or wont even register in windows 7 64bit. im not really concerned about my windows 7 64bit install disk but im concerned about the drive itself not being compatible.

I can't really speak from ALOT of experience but have used about 5 LG bluray or DVD drives in my builds and have never had problem with them

for a new build you are going to need the latest version of most of them like chipset, sata, lan, asus suite.. thats all i can think of off the top of my head

Hey. Just been playing Far Cry 3 and my Vcore-1 went over 80c and threw up a warning. Is this a bit too hot?
Also which area is this? The top of the VRMs?
post #3678 of 10107
your cpu is like in a "Finish Him" state (insert mortal kombat fatality song and voice here)

vcore is the cpu voltage...

and yes... far cry 3 is DEMANDING... A LOT

Vcore isn't the CPU Voltage or temperature. There are Vcore-1 and Vcore-2 . They refer to two sections of the VRMs. If that were my CPU it would have shut off. My CPU core was at about 58c which is fine.

I've shoved an 80mm fan right on the VRMs. Just zip tied it to the exhaust fan for now. Temps down from 80+ to around 58c. Much better.
