Hey all

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
How do all

Been a browser for a while, I tend to spread my nonsense on other forums but thought I'd cast my net further afield and share it with OCN.

My current state is an i5 and 4870x2 rig laying on its side while I get round to testing out a couple of other 1156 boards with the chip, a Phenom 2 940 with a 4870 sitting on the floor doing nothing and an AM3 chip in another board sitting on a box.

On top of that other odds and sods laying around on the floor that need using or shifting.

I seem to have been distracted by christmas and some new PS3 games. The shame, the shame!

Pretty much the norm really.

So, hi all.

Hello there and welcome! Any overclocks to share? You should add them to your signature rig like I have mine. I have a 4870X2 as well.

Ooh, snap. Sure, when I get it up and running. I've had a bit of a break from it for a couple of weeks, kind of left the office full of bits lol. I need to get it back together as I have DAO2, Crysis2 and The Witcher 2 on order and I still have ME2 and GTA Episodes sat on the drawers shouting at me to leave the PS3 alone.

I'll have to see how it goes with temps in the P183 when I get the 4870x2 back in. I only recently got the AC Xtreme that should floor them so some clocking may be in order on that.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

I just got my AC Xtreme about a month ago. TREMENDOUS improvement in cooling.

Aye, I had to hunt around for mine. I may bend your ear on that one when I get around to fitting it on, it's a bit of a beast.

I hope that you got the appropriate screws and the thermal pads as well. The stock screws for the X plates that tighten the heatsinks down onto the GPUs aren't long enough and they strip really easily if you try to make it work.
