Here's my newer iron and my cheapo DMM. Liking the new iron and smaller tip. Iron has 15-35w switch. leave it at 15w while sitting idle in stand and switch to 35w during modding as it melts the solder nice and quick. Don't leave it on 35w for very long as it makes the solder get old and unmanageable real quick.

Go 'advanced' when editing first post.



EDIT: Someone should also create a new Social Groups in userCP.

Sure thing.. and thanks.

D0ctor might not be able to input a 'custom user title' ...yet...I think that privy is rep based...if I member right..

@ the d0ctor- you should be able to change it in your CP ...it will replace the "4ghz" title under your name.

It takes an 'overclocked' account to set custom user titles. 1 year membersship plus 250 reps to get one free or you can purchase one.

Wow. You're really cranking out the points FTW.

Getting too close for comfort.......I better start benching.

Even though I never understand 90% of what you guys are talking about, I do enjoy taking a soldering iron to my hardware.

Can I join?

Here's my first ever soldering attempt:

Bloodrage PCI-E frequency resistor swap.
i7 920 C0 5.27 Ghz, 21X251 bclock.


Here's my second Commando with Vcore/vdroop mods. (Killed the first commando by modding).
7.968 Ghz Celeron 352 @ 1.824v.



I will have some 5870 results under LN2 for you guys within a few days....not sure if it'll really count since the modding was done by CL3P20. All I did was solder a resistor and switch in line....

If you melt solder and stick it to a component to manage voltage, you're in.


Got any pics of you iron and DMM?

Slowly racking up some hardware points, can't afford the new ATIs so getting older cards to bench.
May be slowed down a bit though, my boreas is toast & having bad luck setting up a triple rad into the loop again. When I was leak testing after setting up the rad it worked fine while I watched for a few minutes, came back a few minutes later my mobo was getting flooded. The socket was soaked, ram sticks were floating, it had run down into the hard drives & was just starting to drip into the PSU. Everything was off so should be OK, wiped everything down & been letting fan blow over it since last night I'll have to try it out later...
It was the cpu block, when the boreas & pump died it shaved off tiny bits of plastic which worked their way around for a few minutes till they plugged up the pins in the block & cut off the flow.

Edit: adding in a pic of my dmm & soldering irons, need to find a finer tip for the Hakko, but in the meantime that ceramic core works great for vaporizing..

sorry to hear about that FtW, I hope everything works after drying, if not that's a huge buzzkill. makes you almost want exclusively use test benches to cut your losses and shave off some risk if anything goes sour but mostly these are the things that you never plan for because they just seem so unlikely. good thing everything was off, give it atleast a day to dry out , the last thing you want to do is risk anything.

but yea keep the hwbot point train running, hopefully I get a job soon cause I'm obsessed with volt modding at this point, I can't wait for another G92 to send to the soldering block and get up over 1.5v for some suicide runs. with my luck im going to kill a card one way or another so why not suicide run it .

Welcome aboard patch I added your stuff so you should be all set. We're starting to see some OCN Hwbot heavy weights in the group, that's what I like to see . It's a simple formula:

solder + hardware = more hwbot point

I just hope everyone else catches on to this trend because I wan't to see OCN top 3 in the 3d mark ratings.

It doesn't look like I'll be able to add president to my name in the near future unless I win the AM3 challenge, get a job, get around 200 more rep or find a mod willing to do it. In the meantime I'll just focus on what I know best (kind of atleast), soldering and benching. Keep it up guys and lets keep these submission coming!

edit: oh yea installed a clean version of XP 32bit so hopefully this will help my benching cause!
