  1. I believe the pilot's name is Otto from the movie Airplane. He was the automatic pilot. -misterLOBY P.S. by the way, awesome case

  3. Well, just for now...I took the case speaker out. I've been cable sleeving all week and I'm tired. I want to get the system back up and running. I'll be going away for a couple of weeks and when I get back I'll work on putting the case speaker back. -misterLOBY
  4. Quick question? I'm in the process of sleeving all the cables in my system. While sleeving the case speaker cable, I accidently rip the cable off the speaker. It looks as if all I need to do is solder it back on. However, I was thinking, do I really need the case speaker? Should I solder the wire back on? or Should I leave the case speaker alone without the wire? or Should I remove the case speaker and speaker wire altogether? -misterLOBY
  5. I've never seen that CPU fan plug on a motherboard, but the CM Hyper6+ that I have has a 4-pin fan connector. I plug it in the 3-pin cpu fan plug on the motherboard and the cpu cooler works fine. -misterLOBY
  6. Well I got a chance to take the cooler off, clean both the heatsink and the cpu. This time I put the artic silver 5 on the cpu. I put the heatsink back on. As per the instructions, i twisted the heatsink gently clockwise and counterclockwise to minimize the possibility of air bubbles. Screwed everything back together making sure everything was put on properly. I powered the system back up... and the same thing. 29.0C sys 45.0C cpu 32.0C pwm I guess this will do. Perhaps it's not the cooler. Perhaps its the case. Well, I'm not replacing the case at this time to reduce the temp of few degrees. Maybe later on, nut not now. Thanks for your help everyone. -misterLOBY
  7. i powered down the machine and let it cool off for a couple of minutes. I took the side panel off and powered the system back up. the temps are: SYS 28C CPU 42C it dropped a full 3 degrees does this mean i have bad airflow? If so, how can I fix it? Thanks for the suggestion, I think I may go this route. Yeah, i put the AS5 on the heatsink. This weekend I'll unistall the cpu cooler, clean it up (cpu & heatsink) and apply the AS5 on the cpu and we'll see what happens. Thanks. -misterLOBY
  8. Yes I do. I have (2) 80mm fans in the front acting as intake. I have (1) 80mm fan at the top acting as exhaust and (1) 80mm fan in the back acting as exhaust. All fans are CM blue led fans (TLF-R82). The PSU has its own 80mm exhaust. I can feel a lot of air coming from the fan in the back more than the fan at the top. The fan at the top has that mesh cover. -misterLOBY
  9. for today, the cpu is still hovering around 45.5C - the fan is spinning around 1900rpm. the temp for the SYS and PWM is 30C & 32C respectively. perhaps this weekend I'll open up the system and double-check. I'm retracing the steps I took to install the cpu cooler and think I know where I may have messed up. I applied the artic silver on the heatsink and not on the cpu itself. do you think that's what causing the odd temps. -misterLOBY
  10. Well, I wasn't using the stock intel heatsink. I was using the X Dream III and the temperature was around 48C idle. Like I said earlier, I will monitor it & if it doesn't go down, I'll double check. -misterLOBY
  11. i'm pretty sure it's sitting on the board properly. I used Artic Silver 5 and according to their website. Important Reminder: Due to the unique shape and sizes of the particles in Arctic Silver's conductive matrix, it will take a up to 200 hours and several thermal cycles to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. (This period will be longer in a system without a fan on the heatsink or with a low speed fan on the heatsink.) On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop 2C to 5C over this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is complete, the computer can be left on if desired. I will keep an eye on the temperature for the next couple of days. If it doesn't drop, I'll double check it. -misterLOBY
  12. The Blue Ice NB heatsink/fan combo had fallen off again. I decided I had enough and installed the original Blue Ice heatsink only. here's the nb cooler after it fell http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1314.jpg I figured since I had the system out for upgrading I should try to upgrade the cpu cooler too. I instaled the Hyper 6+ - that was no easy task. I had to remove the motherboard from the motherboard tray. I also had to slide the tray back into the case without the motherboard and then install the motherboard. Finally, the moment of truth. Will the cpu cooler clear with the side panel. It just barely does. I just got the system up & running this morning, the cpu temp is holding steady at 45C - I expect this temp to drop after the break-in-period. I would like to get into some overclocking. I'm going to do some reading first and then begin to experiment. here are some pics ... http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1318.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1319.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1320.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1321.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1322.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1323.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1324.jpg http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1325.jpg There you have it. Hyper 6+ does fit in a Wavemaster. -misterLOBY (I need to edit my signature now)
  13. I just did a quick check and found 2 places where you can find PSU accessories including the ones you're looking for. Check them out. FrozenCPU SVC -misterLOBY
  14. RE: the two WD Raptors Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can only use one or the other. If you're going to use the S-ATA connector you DO NOT NEED TO USE THE 4-PIN molex connector. Basically you would use the S-ATA connector from the PSU and a S-ATA data cable. -misterLOBY
  15. Funny you should mention this... a couple of days ago, my cm blue ice nb cooler that I had installed also fell taking the mb clips with it. I had my friend come in and help with the installtion. He used the remaining clips. However, sad to say the nb cooler fell again taking the remaining clips. I can't use the cooler now. I just ordered the original cm blue ice (heatsink only). I'm using my pIII system right now while the main system is out of commision. Like I said in my original post, this was a pain-in-the-:) to install. Once installed though, it worked perfectly. i don't understand why it fell, the system doesn't move. I'll post pics when my main is up & running. -misterLOBY
