It's held in place by cable ties, pulled super tight on the side with a piece of sponge there for sound dampening, then held in place on the other side by two more cable ties.





Before installing it I had left the metal grills in place in the 5.25" bays but saw no reason to leave them there with a fan. After all the front panel takes care of the dust filtering so I probably should have already removed them. Somewhat annoyingly the 4 pin fan plug wouldn't fit on CHA_FAN1 header because of a little capacator getting in the way of the unused 4th PWM pin, so I had to stick it on PWR_FAN header and thus lose BIOS level RPM control. It just runs at full speed now, but is actually pretty quiet anyway. I may figure out a way to resolve that in the future, probably using a scalpel

Overall I got a 1-2C drop at idle and a 2-3C drop in Prime95 from doing this so I am fairly happy with the result.
Looks sweet. How far back from the front do you have that fan installed? I have the 9700 and I used that same route to create a front to back wind tunnel. Because of the air being radiated at a 180-degree angle, I suggest using something like this to direct the airflow straight at the 9900,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811996007

This should provide better results.

In my case, I have the 9700 rotated so it pushes air up and out via the top Noctua fan. So far it's helped reduce turbulence noise and a couple degrees drop.

I updated my gallery here with new pics:

Enjoy!

Thanks for the comments, the new fan is a good few inches back in the case, much nearer the back of the drive bays than the front, in fact you can just about see the cable ties giving away its location in the third picture.

Thats an interesting air directing device you linked, I'll have to look into those. Also fascinating that your rotated 9700 got you a temp drop as well. Fortunately I don't have any big noise issues so far but maybe if I have to reseat at some point I'll give that a try.

Very nice pics of your Scout by the way, that is very neat and nice colors.

Thank you. I may replace the stock fan on the 9700 as it's a bit loud for me, there are a few mods showing how to do it. This if if I don't switch to water cooling first. It's nice to know another Zalman user out there, I thought I was the only one judging from all these V8/V10 and H50 until you showed up

I don't know if they have it yet but this is historic.. 8 cores for $539.00. Not bad.

AMD Opteron 6134 Magny-Cours 2.3GHz 8 x 512KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache Socket G34 115W 8-Core Server Processor







just dual chip server Mobos for now but give it a week or two... Ohhh I'm sooo Excited.. I love more cores.. 8 or 12.. You have your choice.

Amd is coming out with a AM3 6 Shooter some time soon and its at a good price tag to
It no secret to anyone anymore that AMD and Intel has rolled out their six-core processors for desktop platforms.!!!!

At this point six-core server CPUs are available from both manufacturers. AMD Company offers six-core Opteron processors known as Istanbul that are based on 45 nm semiconductor die, similar in microarchitecture to dies used in Phenom II processor series. As for Intel, they have six-core Xeon processors from Dunnington family, also based on 45 nm monolithic die that is made of three Core 2 Duo-like dies joined together .

The first six-core desktop processor from this company aka Gulftown( intel) should come out in H2 2010. It will be an LGA1366 solution with a 32nm monolithic core on Westmere microarchitecture (next Nehalem generation).

AMD SIX-CORE Processors



AMD plans to release five six-core desktop products this year, as part of its Thuban family of CPUs. These inlcude the 125W Phenom II X6 1075T (6x521 L2, 6MB L3, 125W), two versions of the Phenom II X6 1055T with 125W and 95W TDPs (6x512 L2, 6MB L3) and the the Phenom II X6 1035T (6x512 L2, 6MB L3, 95W). AMD is also planning to release the quad-core Phenom II X4 960T (4x512 L2, 6MB L3, 95W) sometime in Q2, which is dubbed 'Zosma.' Although specific frequencies foe these chips has not been unveiled, they are expected to top at the 2.8GHz.
The new chips will most probably be manufactures using thw 45nm process.


MODELS

* Phenom II X6 Six Core( HEX CORE)
* 1090T Black Edition: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 3.2 GHz Freq Rs14000 apprx
* 1055T: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 2.8 GHz Freq Rs10000 apprx
* X6 1035T X6 1075T and the X6 1095T

Featured below is what looks to be the die shot of the ‘Thuban’ core used in these upcoming six core CPUs.



AMD Processor's From 2008-2010





Future AMD PROCESSORS(server):

AMD is arming itself in 2010 with the 4-6 core Lisbon, and the 8-12 core Magny-Cours. In this section we’ll not only take a closer look at their designs, but we’ll also take a peek at Valencia and Interlagos, two Opterons based on AMD’s next-gen bulldozer architecture, which will begin sampling to OEMs in 2010.

This platform is based on the new AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor (code-named "Magny-Cours") and the AMD SR5690 chipset and will bring 8- and 12-core x86 processors to the market.

The Magny-cour CPUs will fit server systems with two or four sockets, enabling them to replace the existing Opteron 1000, 2000 and 8000 chips. Magny-Cours will have 12-cores, four-channel memory controllers, high-speed inter-chip interconnections and they will be compatible with AMD's third-generation Socket G34 platform. The CPUs will be clocked at 1.7-2.3GHz range and have an average power consumption of 85W, 115W, and 140W. The 8-core variables will be clocked at 1.8-2.4GHz.


AMD 12-core Magny-Cours processors will launch in the first quarter of 2010. A 16-core, 32nm successor based on the next-gen Bulldozer architecture will follow in 2011, as well.



1.Lisbon

Family: Stars (Phenom II)
Cores: 4 to 6
Process: 45nm
Socket: C32
Memory: Dual channel DDR3
Platform: San Marino
Role(s): Workstations, web serving, cloud computing and infrastructure
Launch date: 1Q10


If you’re looking to build a render box or do a little web serving with the green team in 2010, Lisbon is your go-to chip. Featuring dual channel DDR3, 4-6 cores, low TDPs and slotting into the most inexpensive SMP platform AMD offers, Lisbon is a rather modern and relatively inexpensive solution.




2.Magny-Cours

Family: Stars (Phenom II)
Cores: 8-12
Process: 45nm
Socket: G34
Memory: Quad channel DDR3
Platform: Maranello
Role(s): HPC, clusters, virtualization
Launch date: 1Q10



The Magny-Cours is an exceptionally neat processor that combines two hexa core Istanbul Opterons with a HyperTransport link. Pull off the die cover, shown right, and you’d find two independent CPU dies–this architecture is known as an MCM, or multi-chip module.


While all signs point to a launch frequency of 1700-2100MHz, we know concretely that it will ship with 128K L1 per core, 512k L2 per core and 10MB shared L3, along with power management functions that can take the chip as low as 800MHz.


As we also suggested, Magny-Cours is a monster when it comes to parallel processing. The following image shows an 1700MHz Magny plowing through 32 million digits of Pi in less than 6.5 seconds–a 3600MHz Core i7 takes 24 seconds.

3.Valencia

Family: Bulldozer
Cores: 6 or 8
Process: 32nm
Socket: C32
Memory: (Dual channel DDR3?)
Platform: San Marino
Role: Workstations, web serving, cloud computing and infrastructure
Launch date: 4Q10-1Q11


Valencia is one of two processors based on AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer architecture that the firm will begin sampling in 2010, and launch in 2011. The subtleties of Bulldozer are legion, but major benefits include even better parallel performance, lower temperatures, lower power consumption, clock for clock performance enhancements, and improved floating point performance.


Valencia and its big brother, Interlagos, are particularly innovative chips explicitly designed for the kinds of demands servers make. And, as an added perk, AMD has already suggested that Valencia CPUs are drop-in upgrades for today’s Lisbon chips.

4.Interlagos

Family: Bulldozer
Cores: 12 or 16
Process: 32nm
Socket: G34
Memory: (Quad channel DDR3?)
Platform: Maranello
Role: HPC, clusters, virtualization
Launch date: 4Q10-1Q11

As implied, Interlagos adds additional Bulldozer module to bump the core count to a maximum of 16. If you thought Magny-Cours had outstanding parallel performance, wait until Interlagos numbers start filtering into the public. VM nerds are going to bust a nut.

new graphics card arrived today...i think i got a pretty good one(not sure)

clocked to 890/1290 stock voltage.

anyone know if that is good?

btw...this card, BARELY fit into the case...i actually have to move it about a bit just so that i could get the power connectors in ><

why did you have to under-clock it?

if you haven't yet go vote for mod of the month (vote for me because i you )

well bad company 2 ended up stressing it more than furmark..like i had no artifacts or anything during furmark but 5 minutes into bc2 i got some artifacts

i lowered it again to 870/1270 that seems to be the most stable.

personally i would try for an RMA on that thing if its not preforming at the stock settings the way it should be (that card should run ANYTHING you throw at it right now) and if you needed to down clock you may as well have gotten a 5770 and saved the money

but that's just my
