Official EVGA X58 SLI/LE/Micro MB Owners Club - Page 79

post #781 of 2630
So, I finally got my machine finished up, and oc'd to 4.0@1.2875, and it seems stable enough, and Im going to leave it here until i can get my v8 swapped out for an h50 pushpull next week. However, I'm new to overclocking, and researched as much as i could to get myself to 4ghz stable, I still want to make sure that Im not missing a very basic setting that i could be taking full advantage of. Im not looking to increase my temperatures by much, if any. Ill post my settings, if anyone would be so kind as to do a quick review of my SLI LE settings, I'd be grateful! .

I'll try and get some pics up today. I've been delaying because I'm expecting to pull out the mobo to install a new heatsink. Because of that, I haven't tried to tuck away cables, and with the Antec 300 being a small case with no cable management, messy cables look like ****.

But yeah, I do need to update for the fans. Those NoiseBlockers are probably 2nd or 3rd on my list of favorite things for this build. Soooo quite.

This is my ghetto grounding setup. Since when building a system, you can't ground to the chassis if there is no power supply installed and plugged in, I had to improvise. I can't ground to any furniture since all the metal is powdercoated either.

I took a power cord, cut off one end, stripped back the wires and taped up the positive and negative wires. (Yes, I know painter's tape isn't the best thing to use to cap that) I then connected the wrist strap to the ground wire on the power cord and plugged that into a surge protector with it turned OFF. Took a multimeter to the surge protector to make sure there was no power running through, and there's my ghetto setup!

Shame on me though...if my coworkers from my devtest days at Cisco saw this, they would kill me.

Hmm... that's interesting. I've always just grounded to the case, even without it being plugged in, and never have had an issue, and mind you I put my stuff together on CARPET!

As far as I know, a large metal object will take the built up static energy from you and dissipate it over a really large area, so it's no longer an issue.

My setup may be overkill, but from a previous job thats just how I am. Working in the labs, I'd have to verify that I was properly grounded with heel straps every 2 hours or so. So now when I do stuff for fun, if I'm going to ground myself then I'm going to make damn sure I am! hahaha

On another note, just got my stuff from Performance-PCS in. Got my NB heatsink, 40mm and 140mm Noiseblocker fans. The 40mm Noiseblocker WAS for the NB heatsink, but I didn't do enough research and it doesn't fit. The fan included in the Enzotech kit is a 37mm fan or something like that. I may make an adapter plate in the next few weeks, but I'm going to install the heatsink today. Right now, the fan on the heatsink is configured to push air onto it. I'm thinking I want to pull hot air away instead. Anybody have any thoughts on this?
