[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 295

post #2941 of 12349
Hi guys, my AS5 arrived along with some Isopropanol, gave the the CPU and HS a thoroughly good clean and just used put a blob of the AS in the middle of the cpu (as per Arctic Silver website instructions). Ran prime for a bit earlier on and topped out a bit under under 45C - much better temperatures than I was getting with the Zalman grease... Would you guys say that was acceptable, considering it is still running at 1.2V? Thanks for the lapping guide btw thlnk3r, doesn't look too hard and I already have all the high grit sandpaper etc. For the time being though I think I will leave it as is, not wanting to void the warranty on my brand new chip

On another note, I picked up a GTX 285 - certainly packs a bit more of a punch than the 6800GT

Have you tried to run crysis on the 6600 ?

Edit: (I'm going blind I tell you) I now see that you had a 6800GT. That may be able to run Crysis. my 6600 won't run it on it's best day.

OK I just noticed my SB droped 2c degrees from 41c to 39c after putting the squirl cage fan on top of the SB chip. I'm thinking of putting two of them back to back on top of the SB to see if it makes yet a bigger improvement.

Yeah That was one major thing I noticed when I went H20. Both my ram and SB/MB temps went way down as they were not being heated by my cpu. If that zalemen(?) was not in the way I would say put it on the fins where it belongs and really see an improvement.

Are you saying I sould run one on both the top and lower finned heat sinks for added cooling?

I have one on the SB no make that have two on the SB and no difference form runnig just one on it. I also have one on the exhauste side of the mobo on what I think to be the mosfets.

So you had one on the mosfets all along,and got an extra 2c by putting one on the sb?

Starting to get the use of the fingers on my right hand back(after surgery) so I set to tinkering with my new 720.After having it for three weeks

Here is shots of my first tinker,

Yup, I'm trying to find the best cooling option before using the X4 9400 BE again on the new mobo from ASUS. At the moment I just started artifacting and getting some lag in Crysis while in SLI mode w/only 4xAA I was running 8xAA no problem and then it just started artifacting again. Arg so BFG told me to try driver 178.24 and I'm about to do that now.

Good Job on the overclock. Have you tested for stability yet?

Ah the 6800gt loved Crysis, if everything was put on low with no AA it was actually playable!! GTX285 on the other hand gets about the same framerate with everything maxed out

I have run into a bit of a random problem though, upon restarting the computer the monitor seems not to receive any signal from the card and doesn't until windows login screen loads. I am able to enter bios (I guess) by tapping the del key every few seconds during upon restart - it then never makes its way to the login screen and the monitor never comes on. Got any ideas?

Cheers

Actuality. Make sure your cable is not loose at the video card if not then try to uninstall the drivers through the add remove progranms in the control panel and shut the machine off so you can pull the video card out and reseat it. Then try to put the Video cable from your monitor on the other DVI slot. Try to boot your system up and re-install the drivers.

Good Luck,
