    Project: Ventchat

    Project: Ventchat Hello everyone, I can't believe I'm finally getting off my a$$ and getting to work on my next case mod...it's been far to long. This project holds a lot of meaning as it's not only my first project since my Shuttle bit the dust but also the first case mod I've done that is...

    Odd Ethernet Issue

    Just wanted to throw my situation to the wind and see what some of my fellow [H]'ers thought. Within the last 24 hours I had been noticing some abnormally poor download speeds and latency in WoW and it wasn't until this afternoon that I actually took the time to start looking into some of the...

    *** New system on the way...pics incoming ***

    It's about damn time I had something to post for you guys after being gone for waaay to long. I've been doing a lot of work with DogHouse Systems over the past few months and am going to be spending a great deal of time overclocking/benchmarking a couple systems to aid them with component...

    Planning my next project...finally

    I can't believe it's been so long...and that I'm finally coming back home. :) Aside from whatever else I might have going on I wanted to make sure to let everyone know that I'm taking inspiration from a number of quality Lian-Li mods along with my own experience to get started on my next...

    Project: Free Flow v2

    I realized earlier today that if i don't start getting some information down on "paper" it's gonna be forever before I commit to getting started on my follow up to Project Free Flow. My Shuttle mod that became Project Free Flow was my first endeavor in a good long while towards fully...

    Onboard USB fried...options?

    Hey everyone, little bit of a weird issue I've run into that frankly, is quite frustrating. Recently I plugged a USB cable into one of the front USB ports on my case and I somehow ended up frying my USB ports on the mobo. I was properly grounded (as I always am when plugging anythng into the...

    HD4870x2 or CPU h2O loop???

    Well...once again I'm faced with a bit of a predicament. The system that I have up and running is more then what I need for gaming, but anyone who knows me around here knows that I never stop there and that I'm a true benchmark whore at heart. :D Before I get into reasoning and pro's and...

    E8400 @ 4.4GHz on air and still going!!!

    Just wanted to share some of my latest success with my fellow [H] members. After having my Shuttle die on me I was left to rebuild my system which in the end turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The system is listed in my sig but clock speeds are always changing and being updated...

    120.2 CPU Loop vs Ultima-90

    Hey all, just have a quick question before I start to budget for the coming months of modding. At the moment my E8400 is running at 4.04GHz 1.36v cooled by my Thermalright Ultima-90. I have a single Xigmatek 92mm fan on the Ultima-90 that is in the 30-40cfm range and my load temps under full...

    E8400 Radiator question

    Hey everyone, I was wondering, would a single Black Ice GT Stealth 120 with a Scythe S-Flex "G" fan be enough to cool my E8400 at the clock/voltage listed in my sig? I currently load at about 58c with Prime95 and I would want to at least maintain those temps...what do you think? I could...

    120.2 System Setup Q&A

    Hey all, just wondering if I might be able to get away with a 120.2 radiator to watercool my CPU and GPU. My E8400 is currently sitting at 4GHz /w 1.328v and currently loads at 57c on air. The GTX260 is running at stock clocks/voltages and is not OC'd at the moment. Would it be possible to...

    Lanparty Jr DK P45 FSB Issues...

    Just wondering, are there fairly standard motherboard voltages that should be followed in order to hit 500FSB with this board. I've got my system running through 3DMark06 @ 467x8 but I can't for the life of me get it booting at even 475x8, let alone 500x8 for the magic 4GHz. Obviously...

    Accelero S1 Rev2 /w single 92mm

    I know there are going to be a lot of people coming at me telling me to use a pair of 92mm's or a single 120mm on the Accelero S1 Rev2...but I simply do not have room in my Shuttle for anything bigger then a 92mm on the Accelero. The way things are fitting together, the fan on the Accelero will...

    HD4870 VRM/GPU Temps

    Recently I removed the stock cooler on my HD4870 to install the Thermaltake DuOrb. I wasn't looking for lower temperatures, merely a quieter cooler with some sort of LED lighting, as my Shuttle was looking very dark. I used all the heatsinks that came with the DuOrb for the cards memory and put...

    Thermalright TRad2 120mm fan install

    Hey all, just wondering if anyone has purchased and is using the Thermalright TRad2 with a single 120mm fan. Can anyone tell me if the single 120mm can be installed wherever you want on the heatsink or if it has pre-set mounting holes?

    Shuttle SP35P2 Pro: Project Open Air ***PICS***

    Here's a summary of the mods that are taking place: I'm in the process of completely redesigning the way that the SP35P2 is going to look, it's not going to resemble the SP35P2 a lot once I'm done, but I really like the idea and it'll be beneficial in a few ways. What I'm doing is cutting out...

    Ultra-120 Extreme vs. Ultima-90

    Just wondering how well the Ultra-120 Extreme typically does with a single 120mm fan installed to pull air through the heatsink? The reason I ask is because in my Shuttle I plan to have the Ultra-120 positioned parallel to my HR-05 with the fan between them blowing towards the HR-05. What do...

    SP35P2 Pro: Modded Oasis Cooling + Thermalright HR-05

    Hey all...just a quick little post before I get ready to tear the Shuttle apart one more time on Friday to get the chassis powder coated on Monday. First off, I've had this Thermalright HR-05 sitting in my desk drawer for months now as I've never had a use for it. I've wanted to install it in...

    H2 Tech Solutions - Company Worklog

    I'm starting this thread as more of an ongoing "bulletin board" of pictures related to system builds that I take on to do for others, as I have finally started to get a little busier building computers for a fee...satisfying my wallet as well as my hardware obsession. :D The pictures may come...

    New Watercooling loop finished!!!

    Hey everyone, I just finished leak testing this thing and it's time to get 'er running. It's technically not my system though I guess, it's a build for a family friend that I'm being paid to do. Here's a list of the (main) involved watercooling components: - DTek FuZion v2 CPU Waterblock...

    Radiator modification???

    Hey all just got what should be a quick question for ya... Is it possible to cut into the tank of a radiator and seal it off to create a fillport directly in the radiator? The reason I'm thinking it should be possible is looking at Swiftech's H2O-120 Compact system. Swiftech H2O-120 Review...

    2x120.1mm Rads vs. 1x120.2 Rad

    Just wondering what people's thoughts are on this topic. I'm looking at starting (very) early planning for a project and am exploring my options. What I'm planning is setting up a watercooling setup using the Silverstone TJ08 mATX case. As far as I can see it my options are either a 120.2...

    My SP35P2 Build...new pics!

    After having my SP35P2 running for quite a while now I finally got what I had been waiting for all this time...a high end graphics card to turn this LAN box into a respectable gaming machine. I'm still gonna be working on getting some benchmarks done but in all fairness I've been a little...

    Ordering my HD4870 Today!!!

    Just wanted to share that I'll be ordering my Visiontek HD4870 this afternoon and will be able to offer up pics and results after installing it in my Shuttle SP35P2 Pro listed in my sig. It's gonna be one hell of an upgrade...stay tuned! :)

    Motorized side panels???

    I know this might be a bit of a different request...but I'm wondering if there's anyone out there/here who has worked with or knows anything about servos. The reason I'm asking is I'm planning a mod for my Shuttle SP35P2 and I need to know if I'll have space to make things work. What I'm...

    New SP35P2 System!!!

    I can't believe it's taken this long...I haven't had a new shuttle in more then 2 years, let alone been able to build a whole new computer from scratch. Some of you who have been around here for years may recall my constant back and forth decisions when it came down to whether I would buy a new...

    *** Video "black out loop" issue explored ***

    I have recently been dealing with an issue in which my monitor will go completely black, and after 4-6 seconds it refreshes and everything's fine. Typically VPU recover kicks in and says that it was involved, but often it does not. While the display is blank audio still plays, and the system...

    Strange video issues...but not in safe mode

    This is kinda weird so I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas or has dealt with anything similar. I can be doing nothing strenuous at all on the computer, sitting at the desktop even, and completely at random the screen will all of a sudden just go blank. Normally this would be viewed as a...

    FSB Wall Behavior???

    Using the hardware in my signature I have run into a bit of a snag with my OC. I know I'm still using the stock cooler, but I have removed the stock paste and applied some of my own (not AS5, but still a step up) and re-seated the cooler to make sure it is making proper contact. What happens is...

    E4300 Superchip!!!

    Haha...didn't mean for the thread title to be so lame, but I'm overall in a pretty good mood with my progress so far with this CPU. Long story short, I'm sitting with a 3.2GHz E4300 running at only 1.312v under load and still using the stock cooler to boot. :D I still seem to have more...

    Warped motherboard = bad temps???

    This isn't a ridiculously serious issue, nor is it a motherboard defect. What I'm referring to is actually that after the stock Intel heatsink is installed, there is a very heavy bend in the motherboard under the processor. At first I didn't think anything of it, but I have now re-seated the...

    Ridiculously slow FTP transfer speeds

    I honestly don't know if this is directly related to the ICFX3200 or not, but for now it's an assumption. Previously, my finance was using the system that is now the file server (running WinXP Pro SP2) and I was using my s939 system with an RDX200 motherboard, also running WinXP Pro SP2. I...

    X850XT PCI-E stock HSF

    Sorry if this seems out of place, but here goes... I've got a PCI-E X850XT that needs to be RMA'd. The card was given to me to use by a fellow forum member, but neither of us have the screws needed to re-attach the stock HSF. The video artifacting and whatnot started occuring while the stock...

    Shortest 120x3 radiator?

    Just wondering, I'm currently planning a project that I don't think has been done (at least to this extent) and I need to figure a few things out. All I'm saying is that I'm plannnig on mounting a 120x3 rad inside a Lian-Li PC-60...not saying how/where though. ;) I'm gonna start looking at my...

    *** DFI Voltage Guide ***

    I'm pretty sure it had been posted up at one point or another...but just in case there's many more new-comers lately, here's a voltage guide that I threw together when I was still tinkering with my own DFI Ultra-D. The voltage options within the BIOS should be consistent for the...
