Gonna be taking some classes, and then with school and what's coming after it, I'm gonna betaking a more professional look/approach to my comp.....getting a better job to pay for school and taking a few months first to build a new rig.....i can't STAND the ridiculous lack of multitasking abilities of this damn cpu. My rig (hopefully) by the end of the year will be roughly the following:
- Intel P4 EE 840 3.2GHz Dual Core (4 threads baby!!!)
- Asus P5WD2 i955X mobo
- 2x1GB Mushkin XP2 PC2-6400 DDR2
- nVidia 7800GTX or ATI X900XT
It'll be a blast.....I need to make the switch back.....I could just go with an X2 4400+.....but for what I'm gonna be doing (graphics/web design.....and then multimedia/3d animation shortly after) the 840 Extreme Edition is still going to be the chip for me for the same cash.....
We'll see, after looking at the total cost of that setup....I'd rather just throw an X2 4400+ in my current rig for $400 or so less on the CPU, and I needed more ram anyways...so I'll stick A64, but gonna just do an X2 4400+ on h2O instead of forking over the cash for that Intel rig, doesn't seem to be worth the extra coin to me.BitchBreaker said:HAHAHA im getting the same chip!
Very nice bro.....what I'll probly be looking at doing is picking up a chilly1 singlestager to run on my 840 EE 24/7 when/if I get it...and then putting the X900XT on it's own water loop.BitchBreaker said:Corn...i feal ya on the price tag but ya know..im a Intel Freak...so i got to have it,u should take a look at my 2 stage build up some time Im shooting for a good -110*c cascade

I can't justify a cascade when I'd wanna be LANing with the same rig, and when I'm building this for school/work related stuff....and I might even just do seperate water loops for the CPU and GPU....we'll see, spose I could throw a 226W Pelt on the 840 if anything....but I might just stick with a water based setup confined within my (up and coming) PC-7B Plus Lian-Li.
I will/would be happy if I even had 2 rigs running.....its no fun when my main/only machine is down 'cus of a PSU, especially when I'm flippin' broke.BitchBreaker said:Lappy = work pc
Cheap P4 rig = lan
PWN rig = 2.5 million pound 5+ ghz MONSTER! (that never need's to leave your room)
On air cooling, removing the IHS dropped my load temp by 7C.mikelz85 said:Hopefully losing the IHS will really improve temps, especially with the chiller running sub 0C coolant, it might make a decent difference, hopefully a 66mhz one.
Those are the results that have me thinking my load temps might get pretty nice without that stupid piece of aluminum in the way. Though I wonder how it will turn out with chilled water instead of air, could be the same drop, could be larger, could be smaller.cornelious0_0 said:On air cooling, removing the IHS dropped my load temp by 7C.
well, I put some PC toys copper spreaders on the twinmos, and then a panaflo 80mm blows across both sticks. I can't get it much higher than ~267-271mhz, so I'm not sure if really expensive redline would even do any better than my twinmos.BitchBreaker said:From what i have seen bro it wont help u enuff to bother with it,try just adding some nice sink's and a active fan to it,or just get some water block's for it if u want the leet effect then go buy some mushkin pc4000 redline bh-5!
I will, but let me know if you want it back....because as of now I'm selling off my entire setup and saving to build an Intel shuttle and pickup an LCD monitor. Sry for just letting you know now...but I haven't been around much. If you don't need it back I could use it in my parents comp...but let me know.Ok Corn the psu is suposed to be there this week,LMK when u get it
