Did the mosfet coolers do anything for your oc? I have a 40mm fan on heatsink where it says zotac. It made a huge difference on OC's. Although I was able to get it to 3.5 and stable with prime and pi for 3 days it would crash randomly after playing games or listening to pandora after a few hours. I checked my ram it was fine so just brought it back down to 2.88Ghz
but its fine by me. Once water cooled I will try again.
Charles sorry the response took so long i didn't see your comment.
Mosfet coolers did a lot for stability, i was only able to hold 3.2GHz stable when i first installed the i5 760 but then i felt the copper coolers i put on the mosfets and they burned my finger
so i put a small fan pointing directly at them and presto 3.5 GHz stable 24/7 even as a media server.
I didn't realize the zotac logo chip got that hot whats under that zotac cover?
Now the spider case.. wow. first off, i collapsed the legs when installing the amd 6950 and 700W cougar PSU - just way to heavy. so i had to put tension wires connecting all four legs to each other so they wont splay out. another strange thing there is no video card holder on this case. the heavy amd board was flexing left and right so bad it nearly fell out and i had to create a wire that attaches from my 92mm noctua heat sink to the video card itself, hooking it to keep it stable.
that case attracts a lot of comments and its just really cool. i have a bunch of wires coming out the front and it looks like a crab with some strange beard of cords hanging off its front. Edited by twistedneck - 3/27/11 at 1:19am
