I got home this weekend to a package of Shin-Etsu X23+7783 waiting for me so I got the thermal paste applied properly this time. Idles as low as 34c and as high as 37 for certain cores. Overclocked to a 4.6ghz all core and 5.175 single and am very happy with the temp and undervolt!
I am not going to be able to hide the zipties that well on the TRUE Copper. To mount it the fans have to be off and once it is mounted there is BARELY enough room left in the case for me to feed one ziptie to the other side on the bottom, the ziptie you see on the left I simply could not fit my...
I had seen 1 or 2 other NR200 like this and I did extensive searches trying to find examples but they were done just to fit on a shelf. I did it because I didn't want the TRUE Copper to be "hanging" from an ITX board. Another benefit is this way I could make all 4 of the case fans be intake...
Had to trim the thermalright backplate so I could use it with a ROG X570i without taking off the back VRM heatspreader. It will all be done tomorrow and should have pictures up in SFF then. Might post pictures here too if yall want.
Well I have finally gotten around to starting the build and yes I do realize it is a bad idea to build when the new stuff is right around the corner buuuuuuuuuuuut I don't care. Couldn't find any mounts for fans for this thing anymore but that's nothing a few zip ties can't fix!
I don't even know where I bought it but the safe bet is Frozencpu lol. Doesn't matter the bracket is only like $15 so I already bought it and just wanted to be sure it wouldn't be silly to use such an old cooler.
I should have said my plan is a 5950x and some Thermaltake Quad Ring 120mm RGB fans to cool it. Might not be ideal for overclocking, I haven't overclocked since the Gulftown days anyways, but I just want to be sure it stays cool.
I have a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme Copper that I bought in 2007 I think and I want to reuse it due to its rarity but I have to make sure it is not woefully behind the technology curve now. No one has compared it to modern coolers as far as I can find, all reviews that used it are from...

Trust me, it is a fucking mess inside it LOL. Looks clean from the outside, that is what was important to me, but that H115...
I think you misunderstood me. Sager is incredibly reliable. This failure only happened at the 2.8year mark of near constant use and it was handled quickly by XoticPC: within 2 weeks, including transit time, of sending it off each time. Why in the world would I buy multiple from this brand if...
I have had multiple Sager over the years and in the mobile computing community sager is one of those brands you don't buy directly from. Multiple stories of warranty claims being mishandled by them. I recommend buying a sager from a retailer like xoticpc, my last laptop had the videocard fail...
I have been wondering the same thing for a long time. This pattern is not new. Maybe nVidia needs to come out and just say they are adopting a tic-toc cycle like Intel and then people will get the memo.
Did the review say what the highest boost clock you saw was? I read the whole thing and...

Where did all my write speeds and access time go and how do I get it back?
Just unlocked two MSI GTX660ti Power Editions to 1.2125v from their default of 1.15v.
Card 1 was stable at 1150mhz before and now runs at over 1350(gave up trying to find the ceiling since it doesn't matter due to card #2 being so much slower).
Card 2 was stable at 1100mhz and now does 1200...
couldn't they put in a large blower style fan in the middle in a different model? I remember another company, thermaltake I think, had a cooler roughly shaped like this and it had a blower in the middle. I always thought it was kind of cool.
Yes the SpinQ VT.
