I wouldn't know.it seam werid having the onboard GPU on it seam like it faster lol. I can't explain it. atm I did took the other 480GTX off Hope my freind on this post will sell his motherboard to me..
Hey N2Gaming i sell you my Coolit system it a Domino A.L.C. I have used this for like 2 weeks and never did put it back on. just scared of it but it does let your overclock like crazy though.
what kind of cooler is that? Is it a Water cooler system, LN2, Phase change etc. Did you seriously improve your FPS by using the onboard GPU for Physics.
I recently purchased another used Destroyer for when I start experimenting w/minor to extreme cooling solutions on the Destroyer mobo. I sure wish I had the knowledge, skills, materials and machines to make my own solutions. I'd be all over it like white on rice
I also just recently purchased 4x Samsung F3 1TB HDD's and am using them in Raid 0+1 along w/a Sata DVD Burner.
Does any one know if I can use a regular Sata Drive connected to the E-sata connector on the external port. I'd like to be able to use an external HDD for transfering game files etc etc once I put my raided drives in my sig rig.
Oh last but not least I finally got around to updating the BIOS downloads in the Google Spread sheet to include Beta Bios's G17 & G18.
WARNING: The G17 bios and G18 bios overvolt a lot so if you use them turn the voltage almost down to it's lowest setting and do a quick F10 and save then go back in and check your system helth to see what your cpu temps and core voltages are.
I'm presently using the G18 bios and am using a X4 955 (C3) at 3700MHz on stock voltages. I'm also loving how the system works great w/CnQ. My system undervolts to less than 1.0v and clocks down to less than 1000MHz when not playing any games FTW.

Do you know where I can find this replacement part.
This is the part top right on the picture.
I don't know where you can get one other than from a nut and bolts speacialty store. Possibly you can get one from Foxcon. Good luck w/that.Edited by N2Gaming - 7/3/10 at 5:47pm
