Drunk BF2142 FWT!!

I'm in love with the new king of GPU coolers. With the quiet Scythe E, it's much more pleasant than using that vantec card cooler. I've yet to check for contact and lap, but I should be down to 65C load soon. For air X1900 and silent...yeah. :D
I dotn knwo if i would call it the king? Maybe the king of lowend non sli setups... :)

umm, x1900xt's are some of the hottest cards out there, how would it be the king of low end non-sli setups?? you could definitely run this in SLI without a doubt. :confused: :confused:

Not a very good picture of my sink. It is a Sythe Ninja. Kind of buried under the ducting. Cools a X2-4400 nicely.

That looks pretty slick, just clean up the wiring a bit and it would look really tight.

I thought the Scythe Infinity was a task and a half to install on the P5B Deluxe? Also, why do you have your X1900 in the lower PCI-E slot?

sometimes the lower pci-e slot is faster. i know i get better sPI times on my dfi nf590 with the video card in the lower slot :confused:

Really? You get better 'non-graphic' related benchmarks with the GPU in the other slot? I have not heard that, but I have a asus a8n32-sli with a single 7900GTX so I might give it a try. I'm always looking for that extra +.1% increase! ;)

thanks...yeah, I gotta do some cleaning of my wires and I'll be good. I'm waiting on some low noise case fans, and then I'll do it.

heck no. Scythe INF was a breeze to install....just press on 4 push knobs! :) Can't get any easier than that....no screws behind the mobo, nothing.

Yeah, when I took those pics I had the X1900XT on the bottom slot.....gotta READ the manual sometimes, eh?! :p That's why I was wondering why my 3Dmark05 scores were always in the 9700's....then I swapped it to the correct PCIe slot, and viola! x16 speed, and my scores jumped to 13K

all is well now.

I dont see how that cooler is going to fit between even a 3 slot spaced SLI mobo... SO, i think the king of videocard coolers will cool, the king videocards setups.. ie, SLI and cross fire. Any cooler thats too big for SLI or crossfire, is just a good singal card cooler at best.

On the Asrock boards, it will accept DDR2 or DDR. SInce he has DDR, he has to run them in the slots shown. Not in alternating slots as you would for normal Dual Channel.

Correct me if I am wrong.

hmmm... thermalright seems to say that its "SLI/Crossfire friendly for those serious gaming enthusiasts" looks like im sorta right?



ohhhh! and a photo!

and if you turn the bottom cooler upside down, itll fit in a single spaced SLI mobo. i pretty much guarantee it. thanks for wasting my time.

You can't use the sli connector in the picture shown. You would have to turn the bottom one upside down.

flexible SLI bridge?? and for crossfire, there is no bridge, just a dongle.

This is the older version Cooler Master Hyper 6 that is all copper. Weights like 2lbs. I have 2 Zalman Quiet fans on it and it runs super quiet on low speed and still cools quiet well.

Nope, it can take up to 4 stick of regular DDR on the main motherboard.

The doughterboard that lets you upgrade to AM2 has DDR2 RAM slots on it.

Their ToughPowers are actually very, very good PSUs. I wouldn't (as of right now at least) trust any of their other models.

yep they are pretty solid. They do have one downside though, and that is they aren't that efficient.

TTP got em on over @ OCF. He's xfire tho. And he's got an 830 w/ side cooling. Even in my setup, it eats up a lot of space. It's def the best single card cooler, but may pose some issues with dualies.

I still wonder why we can't get a heatsink that's uber long, flat, and exhausts out the rear... :(

nice pics, keep them comin guys :)
exactly! it HAD a reputation for poor power supplies....the last couple, specially these TT's are some of the best if not the best you can get, for the money and modularity:

http://www.jonnyguru.com/PSU/Toughpower750W/

if it wasn't for the "aestetics" score of 6, it would have romped....

SUMMARY:

In the past, Thermaltake has gotten a lot of grief. They had been known to sell power supplies that were "behind the times" in terms of the ATX standards, but dressed up in a lot of glorious bling giving the power supplies an appeal to the naive. Certainly the best way to shake that old stigma is to release a product that is a no holds barred kick butt power supply. The Toughpower 750W fits that bill with plenty of power, good efficiency, active power factor correction, and solid construction.

This PSU gets a well deserved "jonnyGURU Recommended"



The Good....

* Very solid rails that barely moved
* SLI and Crossfire certified
* 140MM fan is fairly Quiet
* Very efficient
* Active Power Factor Correction
* Modular with nicely sleeved cables

The Bad....

* Actual combined rail capabilities are not documented well.

The Mediocre....

* Looks bland.

Terayon tj715x cable modem \ Linksys voip router spa2102-r \ Dlink di-524 router




Blue orb using the case to smash it against the cable modem chip :p




The linksys is only 6hours old!




Dlink





Surpsingly this seems to hold them on pretty well. I even had trouble getting getting the test heatsink I used on the dlink to see how it would hold up.






Im so bored :p
