hmm, I having some issues or little quirk w/ pc probe after installing it on a new copy of windows 7. First had it installed on vista, worked awesome, I closed some of the monitoring boxes I really did not care much about and to make it neater and fit as I put it on the top of my screen. With 7, those boxes reappear after any reboot, its annoying as heck as they are just scattered all over the place. The ones I have kept are still locked w/ the magnet on top. Any suggestions?

The Deskstar I installed is a bit too noisier than my wd. Update on the ek block for the CHIV temps are now in the high 20s and low 30s, seems like the tim has settled and also ambient temps are a bit colder here in my area. I hope it stays in the 30s when I run prime for the first time under win7.

If you click the rectangle at the right end of the taskbar it should hide PCProbe II werm.

But it's not PCProbe II that's the issue. It's Win7.

Is your Deskstar slightly more noticeable than the WD? Only reason I ever hear mine is due to where my tower sits off the floor.

yup, my monster sits on my desk and close to ear level, I hardly to never heard the wd, but that was a 500gb, the deskstar sounds like an old skool Maxtor , Ill return it and get a wd black instead.

well got the 8000 rpm sunon fan in the mail today to blow on my NB, got it wedged between the H50 rad and the pump, at full speed which sounds like a 747 in my room it dropped the NB temp from 66c,67c to 56c,57c at idle. Running the fan at 50% which is very tolerable sound wise the NB idles at 61C.

With the fan running at 70% which is still a little too loud it idles at 59c, not as good as i hoped, going to order me a new case, it's just too damn crowded in this Antec Nine Hundred, going to go with the HAF X or the HAF 932 Black Edition haven't decided yet.

HAF X is awesome . lol for that fan. your idles temps are bit too high. if you haven't tried the fixes for the nb and your temp dont improve w/ the new case, I recommend possible rma. mine idled in the high 50s and that's still considered a bit high but not dangerous. good luck man, lets us know how it goes. btw, if you step up to a full custom wc setup, the ek block for the CHIV is pure sexy and drops those temps down on that nb.

Oh man wermad you don't know how bad I want to water cool this bad boy but I know I have got to get me a case first, this will be my first full tower, always used mid towers before, I just have a big problem right now with spending the money on all this and she is sleeping in the other room right now, I just have to get one thing at a time and going with the cheaper stuff first.


Ya I haven't done the NB fix yet but will look into it when I get my other case, just hope I don't destroy this damn thing trying to get the stock heatsink off, wish someone would post a full vid of them taking it off and how they fixed it ( filing the stand offs down and where exactly to put the thermal paste and then putting it all back on )

Sissy. j/k

What size is that drive? TB or larger? That might make a difference to why you don't hear anything from the WD and the Deskstar. I would think that my two drives would be noisier than that single HDD, but that's no guarantee. I bet you got it from Fry's too right? lol

@bcountry... dude, DO THE FIX, your idle temp should drop nearly 20c. I'm not going to promise that it will but it should.


Just cut out the indentation in the TIM and apply a small dot of replacement TIM to the Heatsink allowing the pads to contain the fresh stuff. Don't FILL the boxes with new TIM. It's easier to do than you think. just lay a file on a flat surface and run the longer of the standoffs on it until it's the same length as the shorter standoffs. Reinsert onto the Heatsink and then do it 1 more time to the longest one. They should all be roughly the same height. Shouldn't even need to bend the heatpipe to mount it back onto the Board either. Mine went back on cleanly.

Read upper post again , it should give you an idea how to do the fix when you're ready.

You're not a re ta rd(or whatever ***** is) either. Just not experienced with this board yet.
