Ok, so I'm having a possible problem with my new build.

My CPU @ idle and stock clocks, is running at about 38c and that is with the C1E support and CaQ turned on in BIOS. I pulled the H50, re-cleaned it and the CPU heat spreader, re-applied the Zalman rev1 compound this time adding just a little more than I did before since it was a super thin layer, then installed the H50 in such a way that when it was turned/locked it didn't make contact with the CPU until mounted down.

Some google searching turned up quite a few people with the c2 and c3 965 Black Editions having the same idle temp on water and air...I don't understand, the H50 is water so in theory it should keep the CPU cooler as long as the ambient temp is below 38c, right?

Anyways...what can I do about this, or is it considered normal? My radiator is in the 5.25" bay with an R4 pushing air, so even though the rad is being cooled with fresh air it is blowing through the rad and across my RAM and CPU before being exhausted. Maybe I should mount the rad in the back of the case?

Under 100% load my CPU temp maxes out at 52c. Currently, with firefox / teamspeak / steam / everest / bfbc2 running, it is at a steady 48c. This H50 doesn't seem to be maintaining a lower idle temp and lower load temp compared to the one I had on my overclocked E8400 rev2 build. Maybe I have a defective cooler?
That's the CPU probe, not core right? My 945 idles at around 30-32C or so when the ambient is about 22C. The core temp on my 945 is around ambient most of the time. Both of your numbers look a little high, but nothing terrible. What was the ambient when you ran your tests?

I hope I didn't offend anyone by my last picture. I seriously thought twice about it and then posted it anyone hoping nobody would mind.

I think Mrs. Striker36 would look good with short hair. Of course you'll have to update your avatar...

What I'm wondering is what brand he is reselling in his kits. It looks very similar to the TechFlex CleanCut or some of their other multifilament braids.
I was going to remark that the close up shot on his website looks like the TECHFLEX clean cut that furryletters is selling on E-Bay for .23c US a foot for 1/4"

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I found a good source for TechFlex CC and am thinking about getting it for my next build. I've been trying to find some good side-by-side pics comparing the MDPC-X stuff to it though.

@Enigma: Sweet. Glock Shock is a bit of a misnomer but I like it anyway. Might just change the name of my rig to xDShock...see below and thanks again for pushing me.

@Everyone: Got the second 5750 in today and installed it! The bad news is that something appears to have seriously borked up my RAID1 setup. I won't blame it on the video card because I have no proof and can't see how it would be the catalyst (no pun intended).

The only way I could get the thing to boot was by disconnecting the second drive and setting the BIOS back to IDE mode. Even then I had to run chkdsk and then recover from my last system restore point. I've NEVER had anything like it happen before. I suppose that part of it could be related to the last time I updated the BIOS, which set the BIOS back to defaults. Luckily that time I was just able to turn RAID back on and the config was still present. After that chkdsk ran and found some issues then too. So considering that this is the second time that chkdsk has run and recovered/deleted things, I'm probably due for a reload anyway. I've been looking for an excuse to pick up an SSD...

its very smiler (we use the furry letters stuff at work) but its just a little tighter weave on the 1/8th stuff and the SATA sleeve (specifically made for Nils and MDPC-X ) is as close to perfect as i have ever seen sleeve

like i said. they look very similar. a side by side picture wouldn't show you much but having worked with both the MDPC stuff seems (to me at least) to hold its self together a little better after excessive moving around

VERY YES!!!!!! M-16+ scout= PURE ACTION+BAD ASS maby when mines done ill take a couple with a couple of my weapons as well... i don't want to feel left out here

and while i agree with the bald thing... i think she would look sorta like the chick from V for Vendetta and i told her she should try it but she just started laughing.... lol

and im gona try and get to Smith soon (before i leave for my trip) and get some shots of her around the campus and im gonna ask for one specifically for you E



and back to the sleeve thing. no mater what you get when your sleeving some thing ALWAYS wrap some tape around the ends you cut at as close to the neutral diameter (with out pulling or expanding it) it keeps it from fraying about 90% of the time and makes it MUCH easier to make look good at the ends

@Striker: I'm not entirely sure this thread has a set topic, only a common theme. Excellent taste in music by the way. I will probably go with the TechFlex CC on the next build. I'm not patient enough to wait for the overseas shipping.
