Buying a new... well leaning towards a case - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
I bought the CM690 II, the cable managing though I did was a bust.
Spent about 3-4 hours managing every cable only to then figure out that the case would not close.
So I unpluged the Sata power and data for the CD Drives and put the 24pin cable from the front and not the back so I can finally start OCing with the new cooler too, will try to reach the 4GHz mark.
When I have some time I will post some pictures too, on Easter I will have **** loads of time so I will post some pics about that time.

My apoligies for not paying close enough attention....missed the "d0"

Anyhoooo, on the bright side. smile.gif
Realtime performance of typical apps and even intensive gaming, you're really not
gonna see any less than those with 4.5-6-8. For benchies, that's a whole other thing
and not an indicator what and how we enjoy our puters. If you're solely looking for
rock solid performance, your 4.0 will be more than adaquate . If getting into pizzing
matches with, " who's got the biggest" , just tellum you're a grower --- not a shower

I'm close, I have the CPU on 4GHz but the stability sux, maybe ****ty MB, BIOS says that Vcore is 1.34V and change but CPU-z shows 1.28 and it always goes BSOD after about 4 songs, same time on 1.31V and 1.34V (I have a media player on to notice when the BSoD happens because I'm mostly afk).
