@ looks , why cant you move the 460 to the black pcie slot? not sure about your board but even if it does run at 8x thats PLENTY of bandwidth for a 460...just food for thought

it's a ASUS P8P67, and according to the manual, the black slot runs at 4x mode, I've tried running 3dmark06 and here were the results.(when I put the card in the black slot, i just let W7 find the driver automatically, dunno if it will make a difference though) score was cut half.

and i just checked the ASUS site and saw this "The PCIEX16_2 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX1_1 slot, PCIEX1_2 slot and USB3_34 connector. The PCIEX16_2 runs at x1 mode by default for system resource optimization." <--this mean it will affect even more if I have a tv card?

that score CANT be right, if its sharing 16x thats not a problem but check gpuz to see what it runs at in the black spot...u might need to install the driver again im not sure..but like said just check in gpuz and if its not at 4x ie 8x or 16x we can go from there and hopefully figure out the issue with performance.

ughh...I'm so newb
just checked the manual again and found this
"PCIe 2.0x16_2 slot [black] (at max. x4 mode, compatible with PCIe x1, x2 and x4 devices)"
so that means I could simply put this card onto the black slot right?

Yes. It'll work in that slot

Several pics of my super dusty SA before and after cleaning last weekend (see attached images) as well as some detail pics of Corsair XMS3 memory clearance under the SA. I noticed when reinstalling my push fan was actually placed pretty high. It doesn't touch the side panel on my case but may cause issues for others with different cases.

Working on some airflow issues with the new fan config. Temps have improved. Sadly I did not have the time to put together some before and after comparisons. frown.gif I plan on making some small changes in my rig in a couple months and will try Pull/Pull at that time. biggrin.gif

ohh thank you for the reply, i order it yesterday... i have some doubts...
if i apply a little thermal paste on the center and let the cooler spread it, isnt a risk that it doesnt spread it the right way?
do i have to be aware of something?? i mean, is there any fragile part?
and the last one, how much pressure?

sorry if my english is bad tongue.gif and thank you for your time
