That's a good card. It'll run stable at 1030core/1350mem using MSI afterburner to overclock with a slight voltage bump. Idle temp at about 42-45c (OC) and doing the furmark toture test it runs at about 70c, but gaming it never gets over about 55c.

@Bri. I'm kinda burnt out with my machine. With my sig rig still down it's kinda like if you can't be with the one love, love the the one your with; except I find hard to love this thing after tasting the good life, so I'm not on much that much. Plus after being off work for six months even the short days back at work are kickin my ass, so I'm resting most of the time and my computer chair broke so I'm using an extra kitchen chair and my ass don't like being tired and uncomfortable at the same time

Can't say why, just don't like that kinda thing. So I was looking for other inexpensive games to play. Sounds like you guys like Half life2.
Did you buy Halo 2, and does it even work on Windows 7?

I bought it a couple months back when all I had was Windows XP, and discovered that Halo 2 was coded, to only, work on Vista and that there was no work around for XP.

But since 7 is newer, and I see from your Sig Rig you have 7... figured I'd ask if you got it working!

There were a bunch of guys on the games board telling me to get Halo2, you should chat with them about getting it running. Here's a link to save you a search: http://www.overclock.net/pc-games/ That was for the 10 year old that was here though. Mostly I get told that between the 2, Half life 2 is better for adults.

No, I was doing the download of the demo version and the internet locked up. After getting it going again I didn't feel like doing it over. I'm going to go with what Rockr said and get Dead Space, I started Bioshock (the first one) today. After those 2 I'll get Half life2 or, depending on what I'm doing with my machine, I might play something I have already. I just haven't felt like doing the RPG thing, or even Fallout3 lately.

@ Rockr. Yeah, I know what you mean. I have every part here now that I need to re-do my water loop but that's a full day job (including the 2 hour minimum leak test), I'm not too keen on downing it for that long. I really hated it when I had to use Min's even though there's nothing this one can do that it can't. Using a 17" square screen compared to a 24" wide screen is hard on my eyes though, esp, since it's not as adjustable as this one.

Maybe I'll loop the loop tomorrow, go for my test fitting at the Prosthetist on Monday and I'll be back running by late Monday.

Hey, Mothers day isn't tomorrow, just in case I threw any of you. The guy that does heavy work for us said that but it's the second Sunday in May. Phew!!

Yeah I keep hearing the same about Half Life 2...

I have that...

But I can't play it..

It gives me motion sickness after about 20 minutes of playing, like, real bad motion sickness...

Oddly, its the only game I have, that does that. I start feeling so ill and dizzy after about 20 minutes of playing it, I have to shut down my PC and go lay down... I think it has something to do with how the graphics are, not sure though... just something about it gives me horrible motion sickness...

Actually, the original, classic Doom and Doom 2, used to do it too...couldn't play those games for long either.

Hello, All...

I'm going to a Push/Pull set up with my H50, and have a few questions. What is the general consensuses in the direction for airflow? Intake, or exhaust for our Storm Scout brethren. (Other than modding and placing in the front of the case) Ill be using the UK3000's for both the push/pull aspect, along with both side fans. Average temp in my dungeon is a mighty mighty 65F Thanks in advance ^^ take care all.
post #9196 of 28613
I'm using my H50 mounted on the back of my Scout, as an intake... with the air blowing/venting out the front...

I am also using shrouds with mine...

So.

Air direction >>>fan>>shroud>>case>>rad>>shroud>>fan>>>>>air venting out front>>>

It seems to be working better for me this way, then it did when I originaly set it up as an exhaust on the rear.

Thanks Cjc75. Do you by chance have the side fans installed? And what are your average temp like?
post #9198 of 28613
Oh, I am also using the TIM that came pre-applied on my H50.

Most people don't realize, that this TIM is actually Shin Etsu; which is ranked as some of the best TIM. So most just wipe it off and put on something inferior like AS7.

I am using 4, Cooler Master R4's.

The RED LED ones... R4-L2R-20CR-GP

Two are on my Side Panel, and two are on the H50.

Also I have the front Case Fan still, and the Top Case fan still...

My Temps, have been averaging 28 - 34c Idle.. depending on Room Temps.

Lately outside Temp has been around 65F and, without my AC on my CPU has been idle around 27c.

This weekend though, outside has creeped up to around 80+... so I've had to turn on the A/C and my CPU goes up to the mid thirties Idle... mainly cause I dont put my A/C very low to save money on my power bill! lol

And yes, those temps are with my current Sig OVerclock.

Under extreme load... running Prime95 for about 5 hours, I seldom top 45c.

Word. Thanks for the info, it help me see the path I want to take. ^^ I'll be reapplying some Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound my friend has left over after his recent install of the D14. Again, thanks for the heads up. Take care.
