    looking for thermocouple amplifiers

    preferably one that has internal linearization and cold junction compensation working on designing/building a fan controller, and been looking at DS18B20's for commodity sensors to place wherever, but i would like to measure water fluid temperature too, and thermocouples would be the most...

    anyone tried undervolting io/system agent yet?

    finished my overclock, and to follow my general procedure its time to start slowly backing off my system bus voltages. just curious what people are obtaining for undervolts can probably take a step or two off the cpu overvolt too

    how do you keep your vregs cool

    i've for a few years now been just using a 5v modded 92mm fan held up by my water tubing propped at a angle towards my vid card to cool its regulator and my sound card channels the air flow down over the ram. years ago i'd use 80mm fans over cpu regs while doing extreme overclocking (for...

    Have I found the elusive "fast enough?"

    I upgraded to wolfdale that I'm running at 533 bus 4.5 ghz long ago, i7 came out and I found no gaming reason to upgrade with my 5870 graphics card. Now sandy bridge is out and still no game doesn't let me play maxed out at 1920x1080 at good frame rate. This mobo/cpu is quickly approaching about...

    Fan controllers/temperature monitors

    got about $1000 budget for cpu... what should i get

    i can get a fx-57 for damn cheap through a friend... but is there a better choice? i dont care about who makes it... i care about in the end performance... a oc'd fx-57 would prob inch past a 3 ghz dothan.. since i could expect 3.2 ghz or so on water cooling yes... ~$1k for just the cpu

    lapping a 478 prescott

    im planning on lapping my prescott to get temps lower then they are now, the water temp isnt heating up proportional to the cpu temp and the copper on the water block isnt heating up so i can only assume its inefficiencies in the heat transfer, i lapp heat sinks left and right any considerations...
