@ Enigma. We'll just call him the Bondo Scout.
Oh, Dead Space is now $11.95 on Amazon. I just ordered it and Far Cry 2, now I have games to last at least a few months, through moving anyway. Did you know if you sign in and then post the link it will show as you and you can be billed, like the oops a while ago?
If you post the link when you aren't signed in then you go and sign in for something that link then becomes active to your account??
So, always sign out if you aren't ordering. Or just don't link to Amazon, let people look it up themselves. Yesterday I deleted all credit cards on file with New Egg.


@ Y'all. Interesting thing that the XFX XXX 5870 is only clocked to 875 core and 1250 memory clock. I'm running 900 core and 1300 memory clock and that's through the CCC control panel. I haven't even tried the MSI afterburner or boosting the voltage at all.

However, just click on this link and look at the memory clock speed. If it's really going this fast, everyone should buy one regardless of your money situation. Sell your car, this is the best thing in graphics ever!!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-476-_-Product

I sent XFXforce.com a "contact us" about why they haven't got any product out on the new Nvidia cards yet.

I also just noticed a lack of the higher end Ge force 200 series cards on new egg, don't post one and show me they are there, I know there's a few but a month ago the 275's & 285's were selling like crazy, now they're dropping out of the race? Seems like maybe they're too close to the new cards in performance but not price to keep them in stock?? I was looking becuase I was thinking of pairing one with a GTX 480 for dedicated Physx, but you know how long that's been tossing in my head.

Ya know, you drive me crazy when you do that!! Now I'll have to load it before I finish playing Bioshock to see what you're talking about.

Ok, I'm working on the pics of my watercooling change. Think I mentioned thanks to Rockr for the suggestion and to Striker for walking me through putting pics on photo bucket so they'll show up large here. So I'm going to post a few here to check them out before I decide what I want as the final pics that will go in the OCN W/C gallery.

If you want to see all my pics, I will be adding the ones of Mindys Scout, there's even a pic Min snapped of me before I finished loosing the weight, go here: http://s838.photobucket.com/albums/z...ild/?start=all

Ok, this is the old setup:


This is the new setup after leak testing but before power up:


This is the old res, on the right with the pump slapped onto it, the part that I really didn't like about that setup. On the left is the Spin res with 2 compression fittings mounted and 2 bitspower LED mount fittings with the LED's glued and set:


I got away with only using 1 angled fitting, a 45deg swivel. For you non W/C'ers, using angles slows your flow.

Don't even start with the wire management comments, half of these aren't even connected!

Thanks, I strive for good looks. Wait 'ill you see it with the lights on, maybe I'll even shoot a vid with the water flowing in the new res. I really want a blue rad too, perhaps a 360 when I get my Nvidia graphics.

Maybe one like this: Attachment 155883 Photo courtesy of Frozencpu.com put this puppy on the top rack and put the 240 hanging off the back. Then some blue sleeving.

What kind of sleeving do you guys use? Nylon PET?

Alright, my new pics are up! I'm putting a 56k warning on here

First off, my new job on cable management. I found about 10 cable ties with the box of accessories my case came with. So i used them:



The mess on the other side of my case. this pic is before i did the new cable management, so it's even worse now. I had to use all my hands and feet to get it on, so i'm not taking it off for another photo



And now for my main gripe, my soundcard covers half my GPU's fan. It still idles at 34c lol. when i bought it, the picture had the reference version, so i assumed i was getting one of those



And i might as well give a close up of the good old soundcard:



Next up is the new PSU i got (few months old now)



And the RAM sticks... these guys have been giving me trouble, I'm not sure if its the sticks or the mobo, but i've had to up voltages, use stock speeds and loosen up the timings so i don't get random BSOD's



And now for the cable managment pics:





The only problem now is the stupidly fat 24 pin cable being so stiff and un-maneuverable



And after all that, I still felt the need for some more photos!





If possible, could i have my pic on the first page replaced with ^^^^ that one?

I just sold my Old Dell Dimension (Success!) Think I'll be buying some sleeving and a reservoir for the loop.
post #9599 of 28613
@ linken93. Hey, thought you left us!! About the sound card, be greatfull you have one, my vid card totally blocks that slot, if I got a sound card it would have to go into an old style Pci slot.

Your Ram sticks. I have the exact same ones for Mindy's Scout and had a hell of a time getting them set to thier rated speed. I had to treat them as if they were being O/C'ed, also found out that if the XMP profile is checked in the bios it will cause problems too. So what's the point of having XMP ram??
So they run hot now, I asked Corsair and they said don't worry about it, they're still covered under warranty. Nice pic for the front page!!
