    Motherboard Monitor 5 and New Boards

    No problem.......I didn't realy spend a lot of time on this, so you may still run into problems, doing it this way. Temps will be harder to validate, but voltages are not a problem as long as you have a multi-meter handy.

    I'm in Tucson with pretty much the same setup, 4 rigs in a small room...... I just got one of those cheep box fans and put it in the window, turn the fan on during the day, and at night I turn it off and pull the blinds so not a lot of cold air comes in. Seems to keep the room about 72f all...

    I want your opinions and feedback

    I like your reviews and find them very informative, however, I don't own an AMD based system. It would be nice to see the numbers with a high end Intel rig. I realize this would double the work load required for a review if you were to show how the cards performed on two different systems. I...

    Odd problem with Prescott

    I know Al is bad in a loop with copper, but... didn't have to read the whole thing! :p Topcat989, that is true, distilled water and a good additive can prevent a lot of problems.

    I know Al is bad in a loop with copper, but...

    True, I was just suggesting that if you had a particuler cooling device in mind and it was only made in Aluminum, then an all Aluminum system might be an option. :)

    I know Al is bad in a loop with copper, but...

    You could probably include HD Coolers with a copper system if they are anodized, or for that matter, with todays water block designs I'm sure you could put together a great system using all aluminum parts. There is some good stuff out there now days.

    I know Al is bad in a loop with copper, but...

    Have a look at this document, In particular look at Page 2-10 Figure 2-16. What the chart is showing, is that the farther apart the metals are, the more likely they are to have some corrosive reaction in the presence of an electrolite. Link

    ?? About Mountain Mod's...?

    You are entitled to your am I I believe the finish is superb, and has a number of advantages over a painted case. Powder coating is very hard which makes it less susceptible to scratches and chips.
