Die-hard Overclocking & Case Modifications Want to overclock that processor, videocard or even mainboard ? Wanna tweak the best out of your piece of hardware or have the means to design a killer case ? Get in here and pimp that rig man.
Hej, now that my computer is on its way once again with the HAF 932 (Thanks everyone for their help here!) and me being tired of boxing and unboxing my 5970 5 times a day, i wanted to ask about a decent cooler for the i7 920 on a good price though.
I m looking for something that will help the CPU hit 3.8 hopefully or even 4 ghz on a good price. I know the usual contenders are the TRUE and the V8-10 but what about scythe mugen 2 etc.
Also how would a watercooling solution fare with my system? In the summer i m thinking of picking a 5870 or 5850 to run trifire and extend my systems life and i d need a beefy cpu speed for it to run properly. Any suggestions and prices?
Lastly, i remembered i got an old Zalman Reserator 1 in my closet. I heard it can fit with a certain waterblock the i7 but how would it fare? Saw it sucked for overclocking but the 0 noise was phenomenal. http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Pr...ad.asp?idx=342 is the base fitting the i7 in the zalman site but i m not sure it will fit my cable/tubes.
Any opinions/suggestions are welcome
lovely thanks for the quick response! about the H50 are we talking about the corsair water cooling one? Because i m not good at product names in liquid cooling so far i checked a review and at 3.88ghz it easily held the i7 on 54 C. Isnt it a little fishy for its price of around 80$?
