Cubase 5 utilizes 4 cores... That's why I went to phenom II 940..

Ableton does also. I was a Cubase user since the days of Atari ST and had used it up until SX3, I also used SX5 for a while recently, but Ableton is the future. It's on a whole other level

So I got my friends old Coolmaster case last night, I can modify it to fit 120mm fan bottom front, and one top back. Also gonna replace my Ultra120 fan with something more powerfull.
My power supply has a fan venting inside the case atm. im thinking of cutting a vent hole on top of the case and having it vent straight out, beside it possibly use my current 120 that is on the ultra for more heat extraction.

hoping that will drop my temps so I can go for 4.0Ghz.

Im thinking 3 of these Scythe Ultra Kaze fans will do the job

That is what people here say, but I called to ASUS support few weeks ago and they said that 800 MHZ is the top, unless you overclock. But I believe you guys:-)

Also same story with my DVDRW

What would you suggest is the problem here?

my ideas are:

1. Not enough power
2. Sata slots damaged and im just lucky that one HDD works
3. the sata cables are stuffed and i should replace

now i've swapped cords and changed things around as much as possible but still no love
ideas?

NOTE: all was well when i put the chip in its only since moving into a new case

PS i might move it into another case very soon so i can start drowning this chip
My first guess would be damaged SATA port. Or the HD is broken. Does it make any noise when you power on? Should be beeping if it is indeed kaput.

Unless you have a fan controller those ultra kaze 3000 rpm fans are going to be loud,loud,loud.
If you do have a fan controller then 1 or 2 of those on your TRUE will kick butt.If you don't, you could still run 1 on the TRUE and plug it to the cpu fan header, it is within specs for amps/watts for the mb.

I have 6 of these http://www.directcanada.com/products...e=COOLERMASTER and am very happy with them.
They are good case fans and not terribly loud at full rpm.

Good luck

Funny, I have just ordered two of those fans and then saw your post. Now I know I have made the right choice:-)

thats where the 1 is going so I can controll it with the fan header, I dont think these will be louder than my r4890 fan at 80%.. that thing is loud, but when I play games it makes no difference.. youre right if its too loud for me I will get a fan controller but for now I'll see what theyre like.

I was thinking of the one's you have but I decided on the higher CFM just to make sure

well theyre on their way already so its too late Im sure they have a H,M,L setting on them so I can controll with that for now.
