For real. It depends on what the ambient temperature is but that's still very impressive.

For fans I ordered 1 200mm Cooler Master: Amazon.com: Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm Blue LED Computer Case Fan (R4-LUS-07AB-GP): Electronics

And 3 Scythe Gentle Typhoons: Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm x 25mm Fan - 1850 RPM (D1225C12B5AP-15) Hot Item !! - FrozenCPU.com

We'll see how they work. I'll probably overclock my i5 and radeon 6870 when they come in.

Edit: In regards to the effectiveness of fans, I want to see how sealing my case affects temps. For example, my 200mm side fan does't seem to move much air. The mesh panel it is on can accommodate up to two 140mm fans so there is a lot of room above it with nothing going on. It seems like that fan would be more effective if I blocked off that null area. Thoughts?

ok i lied. i just did a 30 min stress test and it topped at 39 C

that megaflow will move alot of air as for them scythes not so much half the air movement. and 28dbm on them. doesnt seem like they move much air for how louad they are.

Re: Computer Thread
 
the scythes are for the top pannel. Right now I have two cooler masters right there and they are way too loud for my liking. They each make a weird rattle noise. I'll relocate the coolermasters elsewhere.

its nuts how much blurays vary in size.

ripped 3 so far. 1 is 10gb, 1 is 3gb, and 1 is 12gb. all using high profile in handbrake. i tried ripping uncompressed but i can't figure out how to get the subtitles off it that way. I can see a picture quality degredation using handbrake high profile though. got some more playing around to do tonight. kinda difficult to get anywhere when it takes 5 hours to rip and run through handbrake lol

never really messed around with this. could you just use something like blindwrite
and convert it to a ISO file on your hard drive?

I got one about 6 months ago for 100$ :cool:. So far it is proving to be a great drive. Decent read/write and runs cool. Definitely a great buy.

damn 100$.. thats what i paid for my 1tb lol

ripping into iso's wuld do the trick as ridin stated. only thing is you would have to mount th eiso anytime u wanted to watch something. which there may be a way you can do that with a remote of sometype. the iso would allow you to retain everything on the bd disk. inclidung menus and extra features.

Burkem_10 12-06-2012 03:44 PM

Re: Computer Thread
 
Perhaps pro should find a smaller blu-ray file to mess with.

it has to be EXTREMELY simple, which is why i'm using windows media player for playback. Like so simple my parents can use it while visiting and i'm not around.

Once i have it straightened out i'll be setting up a similar situation in a couple of my friends houses. except theres will just be a simple htpc using a network storage device.

i think if i just make a custom profile in handbrake i can retain the quality. i really don't want/care about the special features or menus. just need to play with it more

edit: if you've never looked at handbrake its nuts.. soooo many options for compression. like 50+ things you can change.

ok so my final overclock for my fx 6300 is only 4.4ghz. after alot of stress testing with intelburn test and prime 95 they would find errors anything over 3.5, i tried using 3.5 but it seems you can squeeze out a lil more performance if you back down the multi 1 click then bump the bus freq until you find its highest stable point, that ended up being 4.4 for me.
i also took and overclocked my ram just a lil. from 1600 to 19something( dont remember exact =P) and i dropped the cas latency from 9 to 8. not much but atleast its something :)

and im jumpin on the bandwagon. gonna get me a ssd. =P just dont know what yet.

Burkem_10 12-07-2012 08:59 PM

Re: Computer Thread
 
I got my fans in and the idle temp for the idle temps are: CPU-27-35C depending on the core, GPU-36C, Mobo-25-27C, and HDDs-24-27C. The ambient temperature is 24C so thats' pretty good I guess.

Under load (max values): CPU-55-61, GPU-49C.

When I said under load I just benchmarked with novabench and checked CPUID for temps. What about joo guys?

solid states are great man just put your OS and software on them....from all the reviews i read they are known to fail and fail n the blink of a eye unlike a normal hard drive where your start hearing them and getting blue screens and the OS file corrupts and such but u can still hook it up as a secondary and recover all your documents a SSD goes out its OUT

btw I dont OC i bought a fast CPU so i dont need to OC.

Most ssds are either DOA or within a day or two.. just have patience to RMA it and you will be a happy camper when you get a good one. They are definitely worth it.

people oc not because there cpu is slow but cause they can squeeze more speed out of what they already got. why else would they sell i7's/phenom/fx/i5 unlocked? ;)

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


he had a 40c decrease on the hottest core and 5c on the coolest core by changing the thermal paste on his 3570k. holy balls!

glad i found that vid. should be good info for you as well burke, if you see cores all over the place when you start gettin your OC on.
