  1. Anyone know how i can reduce the fan rpm? My old abit board ran it at around 1500 rpm, my current asus goes at 1850 rpm. I can notice the difference! I have tried enabling/disabling q-fan but it stays the same? Anybody have any ideas? Is it safe to remove and just control from say a musketeer? Or are there better ways of doing this? I do have a speed reducer cable but it doesnt fit as the hyper6 has a 4 pin fan? Or can you get better 100mm fans ??? Thanks again guys

  5. Hi, Having some difficulty overclocking an xp3200 with asus a7n8xe-deluxe mainboard I can set the multi to 12 and the fsb to 210 and leave the v.core at auto 1.75... :idea: But all i can muster is 2.31ghz ??? How the :) do you guys get upto 2.5ghz??? P.S im using a 1gig of geil ultrax (yes i know-but it was cheap!) The cooling is also good as im using your coolermaster hyper6+ inside a centurion 530 HELP ME , i need some advice - cheers in advance chaps

    Hper 6 + Borat

    Umm whilst removing the hyper 6 from its mainboard i accidentally mispaced the rubber grommits that sandwich onto the mainboard. I think the dog may have had them for breckfast! Question : Is it advisable to mount the hyper 6 onto the board without these grommits, if so O.K / If not where can i replace them and/or what size are they? many thanks in advance P.S BLOODY SMALL COMPONENTS TAKE THE PISSI Did anyone see borat in the EMA's ? He called Madonna a man and said he/she had large hands and testes. He also interrupted the Foo's - Pure Class

    PC Speed Test

    ok ok thats interesting , BUT wouldnt you be pissed if some guy was using the same specs but achieving a much greater score or rank (whatever) ! This was what i was wondering - so you could compare your pc to say the government , nasa, army etc or a jap supergeek with the quad sli thingy and frozen core... I think we should embark on a global speed test for pc's...............

    PC Speed Test

    Just wondering how many of you guys and gals use a bechmarking program comparing other systems on a sort of league table??? I know this exists but i was wondering what each member uses :- when someone says i have the 772nd fastest pc on earth , how do they know this ??? Maybe a stupid question but i want to post my system to see where it scores against others ... Idea using oc'ing to guage if it is faster than a more expensive computer!

    Hyper 6+ fan control :?:

    Just curious , why do you need to set the temp on your cooler to max out ? What sort of temps are you reading??? Im using an xp3200 (ok so its old, i dont care anymore) and just burning a disc while writing this and using the net it reads 28.0 oC .... What sort of temps are you hoping to get> wont the noise get on your wick after a while too?

    Hyper 6 +

    Well it hasnt snapped my motherboard yet , but i have a question for you guys Do i put the thermal material on the die of the cpu only, or do i place it all over the copper base of the hyper as stated in the instructions I have an athlon xp3200+ ; what temps should i expect to be seeing ? Cheers Peeps
  15. YEAH , CM should of at least put in a disclaimer i.e may not work on any cdrom drive lol
  16. Now im no expert when it comes to refrigeration but isnt that a danfoss sourced mini compressor used for a standard 6ftx6ft commercial fridge? I believe it is able to cool down to -2 oC on a 6ft relay pipe and can hold steady at 3-5 oC for as long as the compressor lasts (or until re-gassing)!!! I have one quesition isn't noisy as h e l l ? Oh and be careful becuase that could easily break your short pipes when it kicks in. Nice job though, definately a different way of approach - next step a beer cooler built into the case with a thermaltake xray to light your fags.......
  17. yep that sure would make me mad too ! Do you know where you can buy these side panels from? What happens when you try a little 'home improvement' and end up having to buy a new one ??? I always thought coolermaster were into innovation i.e modding? :idea:

  21. psu 1x 120mm Akasa blue intake 1x 120mm CM blue exhaust 1x 120mm CM blue side intake 1x 80mm Papst cpu 1 x 80mm Papst So if my black math is correct that makes FIVE Still trying to get that noise down though
  22. As some of you guys know by now, im an english gent rebuilding an ageing system on a budget.... So does anybody know much about AMD XP cpu's? If so please help moi. I have an asus a7a266 and am looking to upgrade the cpu to either an athlon xp2400 or 2600. Now does anybody know whether there is much difference in these cpu's in the 'real' world terms i.e loading windows, playing c&c, using the net etc ??? Next question which is better and where the :) do you buys these puppies from now !?!?! Is there some sort of second hand pc shop lurking on the web? I cant find these chips anywhere!!! HELP HELP HELP I am not looking to remove the motherboard either as this defeats the point of not spending money on it! The next question is what is the best heatsink type device to fit on the processor for max clocking and reliability, money no object on heatsink (its socket A by the way), cooler the better - thats looks and performance. Cheers for reading - ill post a pic once its finished, old school rules ! WHY SPEND £2000 WHEN YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH £200 ???
  23. This is my firewire card ; http://www.nisis.com/Products/PCComponents/fw4.asp http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... 40-6878024 Again loads of thankyous Mr RaptorFury....
  24. Fantastic , thanks for your help raptor !!!!!!!!!! I have now got the power led and pc speaker working , I'm nearly there now ! The power led needed a one pin space beside the positive and negative connection. Now i still have the problem with the audio jacks in the front of the centurion530 case, how do i connect these to my motherboard or soundcard? The top firewire port goes inside the case and ends with a black adaptor which has 1394 written on its side. As i mentioned before , i have a pci firewire port and internally it also has an additional firewire plug. So im am looking for a 1394 into standard firewire adaptor?????????????? Any ideas folks ??????????
  25. Does anyone think that this may be the cable i need ? Can you get them in a much smaller length, please help.... http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?Mod ... 45&doy=7m8
