What's the point in the cooler when there's no cpu in yet?
Who's post are you referring?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's brilliant.
Could be wrong, could be my eyesight but I don't see a cpu installed in the mobo. If I'm mistaken, sorry about that.
Dude, the CPU is on order (as stated) and the Mugen 2 Cooler isn't even in the picture. So you're on track with the eyesight issue. :nerd:
Ive built with that motherboard. just watch the nb temps. this board seems to be very sensitive to temps.c1:
It was a joke I was making, I was right about the cpu not being there but I didn't read the post. I just looked at the rig. Nice job so far by the way.
Can't be much higher than the nb temps i get on my rampage ii gene...and those get up there in the low 70's
I'm gonna leave it on the media unit for now and use it to do some benchmarks and TIM testing. I was gonna TIM test my kitchen pc but it's such a hassle removing the pc from there and the p180 doesn't come with a MB tray or back plate cutout!
Added the CPU cooler for ya!
I'm still not clear where you're putting this computer.
it looks better out, i used to do that lol
Got my new stuff.... i5 2500K, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3.
[sarcasm]Hmm..... i wonder who could possibly be Asus's board partner.... [/sarcasm]
Dunno why... just found it odd to see Foxconn stamped on the stuff like that...
Yes.... i know.... stock cooler *HISS*.... that'll be fixed sometime soon-ish.... when i feel like putting up more money for it. My Core Contact Freezer won't work without the LGA 1156 bracket.... which i'm either considering buying that, or a whole new cooler. Nice when it idles at 29C with the stock cooler at stock clocks, though.
SOOOO glad the memory has those blue heatsinks on it.... really ties it in quite nicely with the blue theme of the rest of the motherboard.
On another note, does anyone else here find it almost frightening whenever securing any of the LGA socket processors? The sound of those pins making contact and everything makes me cringe every time.
Also... on yet another note.... i find it odd that now my Prelude doesn't seem to be appearing to ANYTHING. Drivers won't install... and it's not in the device manager. Hopefully it's just a big "DUH!" moment, and not something wrong with the board/card. Anybody have any possible ideas?
Prelude is a car lol
(video card is temporary)
nice videocard lol
Hmm... was looking at his pics... then looked at his specs.... and thought "Ha... he forgot to change his specs."
.... then i looked at my own. haven't change mine yet, either, until now.
