    FoxConn BlackOps - pls help with cooling

    Don't be worried,my friend, I haven't had any troubles at all on that rig lately. I had forgotten it was a whole-system heatpipe cooling setup when I ordered the Thermalright chipset cooler, so I held off on dismantling that whole deal. My final solution was using a CoolIT Domino A.L.C...

    FoxConn BlackOps - pls help with cooling

    Thx for the input bro, I'll check them both out. I actually thought since the BigWater 735 was WC'ing, that it would automatically do better than air cooling :p But as I mentioned in the OP, that TRUE Xtreme 120 is AWEsome *bows down* So it would make sense if a ThermalRight NB chipset...

    Windows 7 Will Allow Downgrades Too

    As long as the OEMs can still charge EXTRA for the downgrade from Vista or Windows7, it's obvious that a lot of consumers will still pay to avoid the new versions & problems. There is no way that Microsoft is going to abandon that much money that's to be made when they have practically no...
