I've been busy for past couple of months with my job and haven't kept up with latest news on updates.
Anyways, needed some opinions if I should justify upgrading. One of my systems.
It's currently a modded nf7s board and mobile 2600, 2x256 of bh5, and a 9800pro 128.
I'm pretty happy...
W/ water, u have lots of places for leaks. W/ phase, yes there's chances of leaks ( from condensation ) but not lots of tubing to deal w/.
I would personally go w/ phase. I like mine and I'm sure u will also, plus, you will always wonder "what if".
prom's are no longer made. company is...
I've tried diff. cables also. Before I loaded windows, the computer would not past POST w/ HD installed. W/ just cdrom, it would work fine. W/ just HD, it would still not work properly. I switched cables and still no help. Put HD in diff. computer and it would recognize but, I couldn't get...
typed this under Run "eventvwr.msc" ( saw on another post ) and got globs of errors from cdrom.
I did install a new cdrom, but thought it was working right. Maybe it's the cdrom. Will swap around later tonight.
System is not oc'd, everything is set to stock. I have WD 80 gig 8mb version HD.
Just got the HD from Newegg, and once installed, I could not install Win Xp correctly, kept getting some file could not be installed, retry, skip, or cancel ( can't remember exact quote ).
Finally, I just...
A couple days ago, I was ready to sling mine across the yard. I couldn't even get 205 ( NF7 2.0 ) But, i tightened timings on ram and was able to get 225 ( haven't tested further ). Seems my board likes tighter timings. W/ 205 they were very loose, even w/ a lil more juice still wouldn't POST.
W/e I start up my computer, I can not see the POST screen, the monitor shows "Power Save" or something. But then while booting windows the screen comes on. It's a NEC FE771 monitor.
Is there a setting that I can change so I can see POST screen?
I was trying to decided on Vapo vs. Mach. I liked the looks and everything about the Vapo but one thing. The way the compressor runs off of the p.s. Everything is off the p.s. Not saying thats a bad thing, but everythings sorta "integrated" together. For that reason I went w/ a mach. It's...
It's big! Just make sure you've got plenty of room for it and you have your MB mounted securely ( it's heavy ).
It's also very loud!!! On high, I can hear about 2 rooms away. I run on Low and it does the job ( low:load 50, low;idle 46) I don't run on high way too loud for me.
Kinda debating on which one to get. This will be in my main bench/gaming rig. I'll be running about 4 case fans, 1 ( maybe another added later )C.C. light, and 2 HD's and 1 DVD drive. Abit nf7, barton, mach 1, and 2-256 bh-5.
I'm wanting one of the PS's b/c read really good review about...
When he had only 512MB of memory I clocked it and it took 2:30 to load the level
But what speed was everything else?
I just loaded battle of britain to see, running at 333fsb w/ 1.74 xp, and 2x256 (512) ram ( no dual channel) I loaded in 46.25 seconds. i broke out the stopwatch on that...
You might have just got a board that doesn't like high FSB. If you read around it's not uncommon for the NF7's. But, if you want to try just search around on the internet for "tictac"'s bios. Don't have the link but search around and he's got several you can try.
It's alright in single player. I'm not able to have any high speed internet and no one around here has ever heard of a Lan party.
If you're wanting to buy a good single player game, go buy Call of Duty instead.
I have a 36 g raptor hd I had been using. Everything was fine w/ it. All of a sudden on startup's it kept doing checkdisk. Sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't. On reboots, no problem.
Then one day it just flashed up bad or corrupt file, do system repair. I don't have a sys. repair...
It includes a DTEK Whitewater waterblock, DTEK Custom VGA block, Ehiem 1250 pump with PCI Criticool powerplant (turns pump on and off with computer), DTEK Procore radiator, shroud, and 120mm fan, and a DTEK Bayres. Plus 10' of tubing. Everything is in great shape, no leaks.
I purchased w/...
Alright, this will be my 2nd comp. I already have the NF7-S w/ Barton plus 2x256 BH-5.
I just bought Dtek W.W. and all the other stuff. After looking at cases and figuring in my so far cost, I can buy a used Vapochill system for just a lil more ( this will be my "wilder computer/project")...
I"m trying to decide on a new case for my wc system. I think Aluminum will be best ( and this will be my main oc'ing rig ) but is there really much difference between Al. and steel? Even w/ plenty of airflow will there be much diff in temps? Diffs other than weight of case?
My main goal is...
I recently bought a used cpu and vga water block. The cpu block looks fine, slight swirls ( normal from what I've seen). But, the vga has finger prints and looks pretty dirty.
My ? is, what do I need to do before I install them? Just clean w/ some nail polish remover or....?
