Oh, you're using a 8800GTS? G92? I have my card clocked to about the performance of a GTS. What rates are you getting in cod4 at 1680x1050? What other games do you play?

MikeV, if the power supply was the culprit then it should have turned off during the Orthos stress test. Perhaps you had some electrical noise or a brown out that caused your computer to turn off. Either way I hope the new arrival performs better then the current "Qtek".

Good luck

I wanted to get two xfx 8800 GTS cards but oh well.

I'm wondering if any one plays HL2. I'm having a problem and hopefully it's an easy fix. I hate calling CSR's for support becuase half the time they don't know their a$$ from a hole in the ground and once in a while you get one that you can't get to shut up cause all he/she wants to do is show off how much they know. I often think to myself while using CSR's, not that it's a bad thing but come on let's fix my problem so you can help other paying customers like myself.

So here is the problem. I load HL2 from w/in steam window and I get the loading screen and it stop's there. my pc stops responding. cntl+alt+del has no effect. The only thing I can do at this point is hit the reset button or sleep button. So I choose sleep. Then I wake it up write away and Cntrl+Alt+Del and end program. Then I get back to my other apps things of the sort. Has anyone had this problem and what did you do to fix it?

If you wish to read about the actual Sycthe Orochi, feel free to do so. It is an interesting cooler in my opinion.

Thats not really a comparison. The heatsink itself is huge so the actual surface area that gets heat transferred away is also huge. So therefore a lot of air movement is not required.

I think a better comparison for airflow vs. cooling performance is a stock CPU cooler. Kind of like what I did. Stock AMD cooler with a Tornado fan. While I dont know the CFM output of the stock fan, Im going to assume since its a stock unit is intended for home PC's itll be quiet and therefore not move a lot of air. So lets say it moves even 50cfm out a 80mm fan. the Tornado moves 90cfm @ 5700 rpm. Mine runs @ 6136. So on the conservative side lets say it moves 95cfm.
Stock fan and cooler temps were cpu 35*c @ idle and motherboard 33/c (with no overclock). With the Tornado both idle between 28-30*c dependent on ambient (400mhz OC). And in a 24*c room idle is 29*c. Now under load, the stock fan and heatsink cant support any sort of overclock @ 100% load for very long before the temps go through the roof (65*c). Literally about a minute, if that.
Now with the tornado fan 100% load @ 400mhz OC it barely reaches 59*c running the FPU test in SnM and can sustain a stress test for an hour and a half. So in this instance as you see, CFM plays a huge role in cooling. Only downside is the fan runs @ 55dB.
But since my rig sits in my living room and its shared with my wife and childern, that is unacceptable.

That was an interesting read.
It reinforces my thought about the Gemini cooler. Because of the way it mounts the heat pipes would go up towards the top of case, making it that much more efficient.

The verticle position could be less of a factor if the heat pipes have a wick inside them. At least that's what I gather from that thread.

I play it, and it seems like their updating it so much that its become REALLY slow to load up.
Anyway, does it happen with CSS or TF2 if you have it? Or any other game launched from within steam?
If it only happens when loading HL2 and no other games, unistall the game, clear the registry of anything associated with it, unfortunately itll probably remove every other game thats based on HL2, so if youve got a lot of multiplayer maps save em so you dont have to re-d/l them.
Then reinstall.

wo doggy slow down a bit please. TF2 works fine just not HL2. I can unistall HL2 from with in controll panel add remove apps. I have never played it so I don't know of any maps that I would need to save. So what your saying is simply try to unistall and reinstall. Is this correct?

From what I gathered the wick is kind of a heat transfer medium that seperates an inner pipe from the outer pipe. But the key is getting the evaporated solution to travel further down the pipe so it can be cooled, recondensed and sent back to the area with the most heat. So if the heat pipes curve down then up it seems like it would trap the hot gases and not cool as efficiently. But then again gas takes up so much space that it would eventually travel down the pipe anyway. I guess its kind of hard to make an accurate analysis without knowing the inner pipes capacity and how much fluid is acutally inside there, also it would be important to know what the static pressure is inside of it. Changing pressures changes boiling points. So, for instance, water that is pressurinzed to 1 psi will boil @ 216*f. Raises 4*f per 1psi.
So I guess more info is required then the companies provide.

Do you have counter strike source installed? And if so does it hang when you try to launch that?

And yes, uninstall, delete registry folder for HL2, then reinstall. Its my personal opinion with deleting the registry folder. That way theres no remnants of the past install, and itll put a new folder there anyway.
