What's Up OCN?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just wanted to drop in and introduce myself, as Ive been reading this forum just about all day now.... Lots of useful information here... Well, it starts like this: Ive been computing for many years now, building my own machines and all that jazz. So last week I decided it was time for a CPU upgrade, so I pulled the old 2.66 Northwood, dropped in the new Prescott 3.4E, along with the dual kingstons... Fired her back up, and realized that the prescott generated a lot more heat than I would like (49-52C), this was with the Artic Silver and a Thermaltake Spark 7... Man, I thought something was wrong, so I got to researching, then found out how much hotter the pressy's ran. So.... I was checking to make sure the Spark 7 was acceptable for a prescott, and came accross the Bigwater kit... "Yeah, that aughta do it, I thought" so I ordered the WC kit and a Radeon X700Pro to top it off. Was looking for a decent midgrade video card, that card had good reviews and was AGP, so I went with it. Put her together with the WC system, temps were lowered, it was all good, until I realized that I couldnt adjust the Vcore with this Soyo Dragon... So.... here comes the Asus.... Hoping to get 4+ Ghz stable for every day use... Enough rambling..... Hope you enjoy my story... See you guys around...

Hello! Welcome to the forum. I just started here uh... yesterday? (I don't sleep much so time is a little weird for me.) Anyway, you've come to the right place if you need some help. It seems no matter what the question is at least one of the other members will know the answer or be willing to do some research to help you out. Good luck with your upgrading!
