BTW.. with the Hyper N 520 I would reach 56c in 15 min then I would shut it down.
Yea, this is one of the reasons I don't wanna go past 3.2ghz with my 920. I get 52c with my n520 at 3.2 already. But my rig is tucked away under the desk so it gets nice and stuffy under there... I can feel the difference in temperatures from under my desk to just outside of it.

Also, my dad was a 1st Lieutenant in the Vietnam war. He was a Vietnamese soldier fighting for the South Vietnamese Army, which was under the direct supervision of the American forces, for 8 years, I believe. Boy, does he have some stories to tell...

Not many people know this, but following the civil war in Vietnam, the Commies (damn them!!!) held "re-education camps". These camps were basically hard labor camps designed to "teach" unwilling Vietnamese people to live as a Communist. All military officers were required to participate in this, and there was basically no chance of ever getting free if you were an officer.

My father and a few others planned an escape from there. These camps were usually smack dab in the middle of the jungle, and they would stick anti-tank mines everywhere around to deter people from trying to escape. My old man and his group of guys would crawl out of their bunkers every night on a set path and feel the ground with their hands to locate these mines and disarm them. Freakin' scary stuff.

Long story short, he made it out, picked up my mom and my oldest brother, sailed a small boat with 20 people (he called it the Saigon 20), to Malaysia. Following that, they ended up in the good ol' US of A.

That's not even 1/10 of the story. Seriously, if any of you would ever like to listen to the whole story of my parents' lives, it plays out exactly like a movie. There are things they went through where I thought "Damn, that does NOT happen in real life."

It always reminds me of this statement I'd read somewhere... "You know you're Vietnamese when your parents have better stories to tell than you." It's absolutely true. I've never known anyone else who has cooler stories to tell.

Wow.. You need to write that in a book. It would sell and it would keep your families history alive for future generations..

I must admit I never heard that saying About Being Vietnamese but I love it.. it is so true.

He's planning on writing his memoirs after he retires, which is in maybe 2-3 years, hopefully.

A few years back an independent film came out called "Vuot Song", which was a retelling of the director's life in Vietnam. My dad hated it. Vuot Song roughly translates to really heavy/big waves. During the whole movie, my dad sat there and pointed out flaws and why that couldn't have been true from a soldier's standpoint. For example, in the film, they set sail around August/September, which is when the oceans in Southeast Asia are constantly storming. However, they sailed with blue skies and clear nights the whole way through the movie. Those are the kinda mistakes that only people who had experienced it themselves know about, you know? The film itself won some independent movie awards, but he just kept saying, "Wait til they see my story."

Here's hopin' that his story gets written *clink*

hmm, so I'm thinking of going and picking up my ram either today or tomorrow, and I'm really interested in the G.skills ECO 8gb (2x4gb) 1600 8-8-8-24.

now here's my question: Since it runs at 1.35v, is that useful even without an onboard memory controller like on an 1366 mobo? I assume it will produce less heat, and gives better head room for ocing, but I'd like to hear from you the professionals.


Educate me!

DDr3 Ram like CPU and GPU technology is getting smaller and so also more energy Efficient. for example the DDr1 use to take 3 Volts to run it an then DDr2 came out and that was between 1.85 to 2.2 and now DDr3 comes out and the 1.35 is really common. The clock timing of the GSkill is 8-8-8-24 This is the cycle that the memory goes though for one process to cycle out.

For now, what's more important is that The Through put is getting larger and by the time we are using DDr5 we will be in the .50 Range Voltage.

Let me explain memory the way I do, as a road.

The Simms type memory road was a single dirt road that you had to stop whenever someone was coming from the other direction.

Then DDr1 Came out which was like a paved two lane road. Both lane going in seperate direction. Voltages in the 2.75 to 3 volt range

DDr2 is like a 4 lane highway with 2 lanes going in and out. Voltages in the 1.7 to 2.2 Range.

Now DDr3 is like a 6 lane Highway allowing for different speeds of traffic and different types of traffic. Voltages now in the 1.35 Volt range.

The Voltage has dropped with the size of the memory getting smaller with the newer versions.. You still Bump your Voltage with your Ram to over clock it.. But not as much as you did before and hence the larger Heat Sinks on them. To protect them from overvolting and those new smaller chips from burning up.

Hope that helps.. I know I probably got some things wrong so I will allow others more knowledgable to help with this but that is pretty much the way i understand it.

Thanks a lot! educational read.

@Hyujmn: I would love to read your fathers memoirs. Man, such crazy hardships to face during times of war.

God bless all the Vets out there. Here in Canada its called Memorial Day, but its the same thing. Its remembering the vets who put their life on the line, or were injured or died for their country.

DDR1 was 2.5v, not 3.0 although some did use up to 2.75 officially. The only ram that really needed 3.0vdimm was the WinBond BH-5 which didn't really get going until you ran 3.2 to 3.3vdimm through it, although that was UN-official. With 3.3vdimm BH-5 would run 266MHz (PC-4300) and higher with 2-2-2-11 CR1 timings on the top OCing boards like the DFI NF2 LanParty B or Ultra Infinity.

i know... but 12 of these are cooler



they say the effective range is just short of 17 kilometers but they will shoot for more like 25 if the wind is right

Hey just one of those is good!
Dude, you got your facts right?? I'm pretty sure when we were range officers, they were shooting over us & we were 21k away, thier target was at least 6k farther?? Check it out please. I'm talking 155mm mobile battery.

Edit: Striker, the wiki says it's 18 to 30k!
