Finally assembling my rig! - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Thread Starter 
I think I'm done lapping my TRUE Black.





Not exactly a mirror finish, but it should serve my purposes well.

I have my TRUE installed on my Q6600. I ordered some Scythe Slipsteams to slap on my TRUE last night along with another one for the back of the case and better 140mm fans. I'm going to order a fan controller tonight. I'll upload pics later tonight and probably resume assembly when my other fans come in.

The fan came in yesterday and I spent parts of the evening putting my rig together. I hooked up the peripherals and such and nothing showed up on my monitor. I figured out the problem later. I have a couple dozen pictures I'm in the process of uploading. I'll post them on here as soon as they're finished. Then I'll finish installing Windows and learn just how upsetting overclocking can be.

Good job. great choice of hardware. no velociraptor hd? Oh well. Maybe get a 1tb hd later for storing vids and apps. the 150gb raptor will fill up quick with games installed

Thanks.

The Velociraptor seemed a little pricey at the time. I paid around $125 for my Raptor. I plan on using that rig for games only right now. We'll see how things go. If I feel the need for more storage, I can always buy another HDD.

I'm playing with my Q6600 now. I'm going to see what my maximum stable overclock is, then pop in my Q9450.

Core Temp says my VID is 1.275 on the Q6600. Is that good or bad?
