Okay.. About the Raidmax PSU.. You are right. get that 430 corsair that is on sale and then pitch that Raidmax an what ever varmant you have trapseing around your territory.

About Hard drive Covers. I have 3 of them. Metal and cut to fit that I need to get rid of pm me and I will get with you about price and shipping.

Yeah?! It's worth it too, though the discs tend to spin out of balance till you start cutting., but if you're gonna get the EZ-Lock you gotta the diamond cutoff wheel.

This will be the second time I used a dremel. The first time, I cut off part of my stock 4850 heatsink. Ill stick with cutting tools that come with the dremel then Ill go hardcore when I need to.

If you're planning on cutting any part of your case with the stock cutting tools that came with the dremel you're in for "hardcore" believe me. The ez-lock and the diamond cutting wheel makes cuts like a hot knife through butter. You'll use up all the cutoff wheels included with the kit before you're done with the jobs. At the very least get yourself some reinforced cutoff wheels. Trust me, you'll be grateful you did.

Ya i'll have to agree with Rockr and E on getting the reinforced cutoff wheels but that EZ-Lock is even more handy. I cut alot of fan grills out of cases and those diamond cut wheels have been a life saver.

He's always been right. Until today...

Threw together a custom loop on FrozenCPU and stuck it in my wishlist...

$1,278.75 shipped.

D:
Please post a list of what you're getting!! Very interested in seeing what costs so much in one loop. Kinda getting the feeling that it's more than one loop, at least more than one pump??

Is this what was causing the O/C problem? Did you ever figure that out??

Absolutely positively most asuradely (sp?) have to agree here. One will do the job pretty danged good, the power to heat/ price ratio is in the sweet spot. Then if you ever want to go SLI and double your fun, this is the card to do it. Of course it has to be an Evga to get all the benefits out of it. Try to get the plain vanilla and get the HF (high flow) bracket if it doesn't come with it.

On a side note, I've been having some issue with overclocking my memory to its rated specs. I know that they memory sticks themselves are fine because I have tested them individually in MemTest86+ and they all passed. It seems to be either a processor or motherboard issue. I currently have them running at the correct speed with only two sticks and they are running flawlessly, but I had to bump up my QPI voltage to 1.33V. When I add the third stick, no matter what voltage I've set the QPI, I always get random freezes with no BSODs. I have raised it all the way up to 1.4 V with no luck. Do you think that I have a bad memory controller on the 920? Thanks.
Bad controller?? Hard to say, do you have the numbers off the heat spreader? I would need to look up the lot number & see if it has known problems. Have you tried running it as 1333 ram, boosting the ratio to 2:8 or 2:10??

Ok, this is my Ram, but it's blue, I know it's this from the model number: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-292-_-Product

This is my settings page for the ram:

Dimm voltage is 1.65v Let me know if you have any questions. Oh, my qpi is 1.45. I have had it up to 4.2G's without increasing any voltage so I know it can do it, I just prefer to stay around 4.0G's.

Edit: It will run at 9-8-9-20 with 1T and 88 but it has noticeable lag time, it's like a hiccup, you click on something and there's a visual hesitation, like the memory controller got confused for a micro-sec. Maybe this is happening with yours, you might need to go to 2T's.

Yeah, don't chuck the Raidmax though. I keep one around at all time to test fans, HDD's out of the system, stuff like that. I wouldn't trust it to do much more though!

But it's really worth it, it gives you a lot of options, esp you don't have to keep track of that stupid collet wrench!! I have 12 of them BTW, wrenches, not EZ Lock, only have 2 of them, one got stepped on. You could buy the EZ lock without the blade & get the diamond blade that Rockr is telling you about below, they last forever, I still have 3 out of a pack of 5 that I bought around 12 years ago!

Totally, the thin wheels that come in the kit just see metal & break into pieces!!

Like I said above, the other way will last much longer. This kit has it's uses but case modding is not one, the "thin" cutters in this kit are about 10 times thicker than a diamond wheel.

The Mouse:
Ok, here's the "One more thing": I ordered the RAT 7 mouse, it looks to me to be the most comfortable for a cold arthritic hand. I was told that the Logitech G700 is a better gaming mouse, Striker said it was a great fit in his hand, a very respectable mod said it was best for gaming but it tipped the scales of my bank account too far to the "overdrawn" side.

I'm also hoping to get the G13 gameboard. Maybe not for Christmas, maybe Dapper Dan's birthday or Brutus's! If I get the Rat 7 and think it could be better I can return it and try out the G700. I just don't see my finger moving in the way it takes to push the buttons on the top right side. Oh, this keyboard looks great but I have to have the V shaped ones:
My Camera: Well, technically it's Mindy's but I use it a lot more! I'm probably going to take it back to Costco, get the one that's on sale on Amazon, this one: Same Camera, $30- less & all I loose out on is the case! Sheesh! I'd rather save the money & buy a cheapo case, it's not like we travel the country or anything!!

Anyone want a 1000watt PSU for $80-?? Last chance for this thread, it's going up on the Marketplace Friday afternoon!
