  1. sounds like its a lil tight on the board ... cuasing warpage .... reseat it to the mb . you may wanna try placing 3 - 4 pea sized drops of Thermal paste near the center of the cpu ( between the center and the edges ) . dont spread it evenly because the IHS on the intels are not flat
  2. for the tx it is possible but requires a lil modding to the plug from the aerogate 2 . why do you want to control the fan on the 2600 ? you can do this thru rivatuner . the fan speed anyways .. heres a tutorial on how to .. Here scroll to bout the middle portion of the tutorial .
  3. build a unit that houses rads and pumps run the hoses thru the case . i am currently working on a project similar to this but my rad box will be mounted to thae case on the bottom but also look like the case as well ..
  4. well i know 2 Other forum member's at Cluboc.net who is using it and so far there doin 3.4 gighz with it @ round 50 - 55 c ( give or take a few )
  5. its not tall . its just long ... yes it will fit on your board . it should have no issues fitting in your case . i have one in pops comp and its a smaller ( length ) case design compared to the newer longer cases ...
  6. i say its the r80 mini . a 6600 runs a tad warm allready . look into a good air cooler
  7. as long as the x3 follows the standard mounting it should fit .
  8. If it fits the 2900xt it will fit the pro . as the pro is just a down clocked version of the XT ...
  9. i want These Fans you guys Used Here ( see image ) oh i am leaving this big so you can see these KICK A$$ fans , ok now how do i get me some ........
  10. from what i can gather it supposed to replace the hyper 6+ coolers . it should cool well from the looks of it ...

    questions....

    the color would be aluminum , cfms i am not to sure but the 11 cfm fans are used quite common on the 120's and the 80 mm i think is a 25 cfm ...
  12. how is that a design flaw ? and what are the other design flaws ?
  13. yes you are correct but i belive the purpose of the psu ( as most the RP's are ) sli capable or crossfire capable @ 750 watts rating ( continuous ) maxing @ round 825 - 850 watts is more then capable of handling such a task . it may require some fiddling with the cables ( put one 6 pin connector on #1 card and the 8 pin on card 2 then put the other cable as 8 pin on card 1 and 6 pin on card 2 ) to evenly distribute the amps , if your card has 2 Pci-e connectors . but depending on type of card's he is running if its a ultra or 2900 Xt i would recomend the 850 watter , again i think the 750 be more then capable edit: just to add that listing i dont think has been updated latly as the 750 and a couple others from cm are fairly new ...
  14. on a review i just got thru reading it has 2 x 6 pin pci-e and 2 x 8 pin pci-e plugs . this psu i believe will power twin 2900's easily enough as it falls under ATI's quidlines for crossfire 750 watt psu , 4 x 6 pin plugs ( 2 x 4 pin + 2 x 8 pin recommended ) . i do know cm power supplies are good and not a elcheapo i do believe it can power a couple of gtx's if you can convert the 2 8 pin pci-e's to a couple of 6 pin pci-e's ...
  15. it happens even with cars ..... probably one of the very first ones ever produced that got held up in circulation .
  16. WOW its ity bity ..... now wheres the case for it .....
  17. CM says it is not really needed and it meets Intels requirements for mounting .i used one on my geminiII and it performed better with it then without one.. there would only a few reasons why the gemini would cool properly 1) bad air flow or restrictive airflow in side the case . 2) the board is actually warped causing the cooler to only hit the outer edges of the CPU IHS ( over tightened screws causes this ) . 3) Thermal paste not properly applied , 4) the Heat sink isnt on flat the cooler is cock eyed on the cpu IHS ( one side of the Cooler is tighter then the other side ). the retention plate helps alleviate #2 and part of #3 reason . now if you feel the gemini isnt cooling properly and you want a different cooler the only one i would recommend is the Hyper 6+ ( from what i used , i used a bunch of coolers so far the 2 best ones are geminiII and the hyper 6+ for air cooling )
  18. its a plate that goes behind the mb . gl . i would look into removing a side panal and still make sure the cooler is prperly making contact check the bracket the connects to the cooler as well ....
  19. hmm . are u running the case open or closed ? and is the cooler getting enough clean airflow ? when i apply my silicone based thermal grease i put 5 eaqual sixed drops on the entire ihs ( it is fairly thick at start but once i tighten down the coolers it spreads out evenly and over the sides .. another question are you using a retention modual ?
  20. that means good contact . reapply your thermal paste and put both fans blowing downwards . just a question tho what fans are you using ?
  21. nope . this would be user . set the fans to blow air thru the cooler .the intel cpu's are kinda finiky when it comes to thermal paste , a good idea is to place a half sized pea droplet right in the middle of the IHS of the cpu yo may want to possibly add four more smaller droplets halfway between the middle to the corners of the IHS , NOTE : you dont have to ( i had to do this because the IHS isnt flat and this allowed the TIM to spread more evenly ) then mount the cooler to the board but make sure you dont over tighten it and this will warp the board causing the cooler only to cool the outer edges of the cpu . when tightening the cooler , start on one corner , screw the nut just till it hits the board , on the oppisite corner ( diagonal ) repeat , then move to the same side corner repeat , then diagonal corner repeat after this is done then start back on the first screw retighten to snug Repeat same procedure again .. making sure the board isnt getting warped if it is then loosen retry .. ( this isnt just for this cooler this procedure should be fallowed on all coolers ..... )
  22. just for info sake i know a few peoples used a 7200 sata 2 and gotten a raptor 10 k sata 1 . and they all said the raptor absolutly whoops BOOTY ... keep in mind its not only the spin rate its the seek time a 4 ms vs 8.8 ms ( average )
  23. RTFM , it will tell ya where the front io plug ins are @
  24. the flipped mb tray in my experiences usually provide better air flow and better thermal dynamics . i built 2 cases using that idea and for air type cooling IMO its one of best designs
