    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    Mine just failed too, lasted less than six months. These are junk, stay away from them. Not even bothering with an RMA would never trust putting this thing back in. Went with a Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 instead.

    ASUS X399 Strix immediately shuts off if 8 pin 12V CPU power connected. Help?

    I just had the EXACT same thing happen and I also went with the MSI X399 Gaming Pro Carbon as a replacement. The MSI came right up and has been flawless.

    Need help overclocking 4770k on MSI Z87A-GD65

    this was my experience as well. got the new ram and same thing. I could boot into windows for 30 sec on 4.7ght @ 1.35 and windows stable 4.6ghz at 1.30 but prime will bluescreen after 15-30 min :( I just cant justify more than 4.5 with the voltage that high

    ASUS & [H]ardOCP Haswell Z87 ROG Motherboard Giveaway! Week 2

    I am interested in the simplicity of the layout. I can use this to build my 9 year old daughters first computer with her and it would be really easy to get her started on overclocking as well. And the Quick Notes along with customizable shortcuts would make for a great learning experience.

    Need help overclocking 4770k on MSI Z87A-GD65

    Only changed the settings listed. I was originally trying to start out at 4.6 and that's why I had it so high. Since staying at 4.5 till the ram gets here, decided to back off the volts and see how low I could get it

    Dell Studio XPS 16

    keep in ind that they don't support Winxp on that machine. Check thier driver downloads, they only list vista. I have the studio xps 13 and was trying the same thing. You can make it work but it isn't perfect. Honestly I just stuck with 64 bit vista to take full advantage of the 4 gigs of ram...

    3.4 ghz goal on q6600

    ok now at 1.5 and running prime... blue screened :( the highest temp core right before was 61c Thats a little too hot for my tastes as well as I wanted to stay around 1.4v vcore so I am leaning towards leaving it at 3 ghz for now unless someone has a sugestion on something I overlooked (i'm...

    3.4 ghz goal on q6600

    just wanted to add that with the new ram being only 2 sticks and rated for 1066, they are not running ovr clocked so I don't think the mch or dimms are an issue. I get a little more stability with higher voltages on the vcore. took it to 1.475v and I get to windows fine but then I get errors in...

    3.4 ghz goal on q6600

    Thanks for the replys. you guys are encouraging me cause once I get my ram I can lower the multiplier to 8 and raise the fsb 425 (from 9x33) and know its not the ram holding me back. I don't mind running at 1.5v as that is at intel spec but I am worried about anything over that. wheazy : what...
