Tuniq Tower... E6550

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just bought one 2 days ago on newegg.

Anyways Instead of buying the blue light up one for 2 dollars more i got the normal one. Since i didn't want to spend much since someone i guess pick pocketed my jacket at school... College school same thing i guess...

It wasn't on me so don't ask lol. And it was only 20 dollars but still
And guys no more camaro for me, sad my name says Z28 My motor block cracked in half. I have no clue how don't ask... It back fired then died. it was in -2F weather.

it still runs but pours gallons of antifreeze out of the back of my exhaust, Its very depressing.

Anyways. I hope to get better temps now with my new tuniq. which right now gonna check where in the mail it is

you're gonna love it! I do too. I don't think your gonna be limited by your temps overclocking your 6550. rather your mobo's FSB (not that it's bad but 500+ is always tough).

my mobo has 800FSB max. And I'm probably gonna stop at 3.5ghz.

i don't need that much, if anything my videocard is bottlenecking my cpu now.

the water in your coolant probably froze, expanded, and cracked the block. your coolant/water mix was wrong for your climate. sorry man.

yeah oh well, sorry to say but its a chevy lol.

Every one i've ever owned has died, then i throw in a real mans motor in those cars. Stock Chevy motors die Way to easily.

and i never did have water in the block lol. I never did that part So my motor would never go over 170F but i never did have heat but i didn't care. it was great for the track in the summer.

Ahh, that sucks I've never had a problem with the engines - it's the rest of the vehicle that falls apart (electrical problems, doors falling off, you know...). So, what you doing with the Z28?...

Cam, Lifters, Rockers, Complete rebuild. Hope to get around 400+ HP

I already used to get 325 And i knew something was up it kept running on 7 cylinders this whole year then once or twice it would do all 8

i ONLY payed 1500 for the car and put in a trans for 500 with a 3400 stall.
It was a rebuild with 500 miles and had the silverado 2500 parts for extra strength Also I used the strongest trans fluid.

That car chirped third gear with stock motor only added a 52mm intake, and a Chip. and dynoed out 325hp and thats running on all 8, With only 7 running i could chirp 2nd.
