Have a 3600 on a Asus 450 MB when overclocking in Bios past 4.2 It does some massive ram Freq. downclocking and big CAS upclocking. Have never seen such - like this - weird
but benchmarks do still increase - Duh
Just wish I had done all four sides - The pads were to level up to the waterblock so it would make contact. EK makes some nice pads over stock amd stuff did a simple heating pad test with my trusty laser temp gun.
This was the second time I set the block and it helped junction temps that's all...
Hi all just logged in to see if anyone was having issues with the last couple of driver updates. Mine has been doing a lot of driver resets. so dropped back to 10.5.2 seems to be doing mo better in the last few hours.
Saw some temperature post so I thought I would throw mine in at idle - EK...
Have a Sata HD & DVD player - was wondering which to plug in to the motherboard sata plugs red and or black. Also are there any adjustments in the bios I need to make sure of. Having a tough time geting to boot to CD. Thanks much for any info on subject.
Thats about right on Fmark
Just tried a 3rd card on a X38 DFI
CCC sees it but does not recognize it in the overdrive screen.
Decided to stop because it looks like it RACES the third card and the temps on the back of the card climb very fast :eek:compared to the top 2 cards when trying to...
Had the same problem and a reflash of the bios did the trick .It was on a X38 board. Even though the little crossfire box is checked it ain't always so. Futuremark will tell you for sure.
Have a couple of questions
Will this new driver support CrossfireX (3 or 4 cards) ?
What would be...
For starters lap the heatsink, you will be suprised at what you see when you start lapping thermalright sinks. (have done 2 of them). I add a old northbridge sink to the top of the mounting bracket ( Ceramique between cpu sink and bracket) many will wedge in tight with little modding. :)
Trying to get DSL service in my shop.
Was wondering what the maximum distance from a router (in my house) you can run cable without loosing signal. Also if I was to go wireless how that might effect gaming on a desktop for multi player shooter type games vs direct DSL ?
So far I like the 2900s in crossfire
got these on a DFI ICFX 3200
Its hard to say - with the stock block seveal months ago I had it on a quad core. It seemed past 3300 mhz it wasn't much better than good air. Dusted it off last week and added the 2 blocks on the Biostar. Just checked- at 3000mhz it Idels at 25C and a 8m super pi averages about 34 to 37C. This...
I didn't use a reservoir. I just carefully refilled the hoses as best I could,Had a little air in the loop but it comes with some air in the loop from the factory. I wouldn't mess with the pelts/sinks.( you might want to try is to insulate the blue pelt covers where they get cold maybe)
Been there done that it really doesn't help much. What does seem to make a big difference is changing out the heat sink (DDen) . Have it cooling a Biostar 550 N. bridge and a Brisbane 4000 at 3100+ MHz prime stable, with what seems to be better than water cooling temps. Checked out the inside...
You may want to go to the hardware store and pick up some small bolts, nuts, washers & springs maybe and bolt the Infinity down real snug while out of the case for starters. hate those plastic tie downs:)
Have had one for a couple of weeks - have gotten some really nice temps at 3600mhz.
Added thermal paste between the hold down bracket and main sink and slipped a NB sink on top of the bracket held tight by the bottom cooling fin. They all heat up to about the same temps so I guess its helping...
had a pair in crossfire - without the harness.
was very disapointed in the difference in 1 card and crossfire
If I remember right my X850xt was faster.
Thermalright HR-01-K8 CPU
Works pretty good and you can get all that heat out of your case with the duct
Use a push fan on the sink and a pull fan on the case back wall.
You may want to leave you voltages on auto except for ram for starters just to see -the 680i are very good at adjusting to the load + (lower temps). Maybe start out with the ram linked (auto then sync.) and keep notes on you progress and ratios (cpuz) then try unlinked / ram timmings.
You may want to take the motherboard out of the case when you try it the first time. The hooks can be hard to get to in a case . Just keep good preasure on top of the sink to keep it from rocking when you start hooking the 4 hooks. I think it comes with a special bracket for 939 MBs
Thanks for the tip - Tryed it -- still beeps the same
even better now sometimes when it beeps while playing a 2142 my right MOVE button seems to get stuck and you start going in circles for about 5 seconds.oh boy what next
I think Ill turn it back on and maybe that will clear up. LOL
