My (current) open bench setup
 
Yeah so I thought I would post this in case any of you were curious as to what my current case-less setup looks like. I change hardware pretty frequently (mostly gpu's +cooling methods) but the cpu, mobo, and ram stay pretty constant.

Currently running 2x 4870's @ 795/1100 (will run higher, but right now I'm testing my ram's performance). tx850w corsair, 2x1gb of corsair ram (ddr2-960 2.08v), phenom2 @3.84ghz... etc etc.

In the pics I'm cooling my cpu with a freezone elite (will be replaced by a boreas by the end of this week hopefully) my gpu's and NB are in a water-cooling loop powered by my xspc topped mcp355 pump, cooled by my mcr220 rad with 4 fans in push/pull. gpu's are cooled using 2 mcw60 blocks and the non-plastic part of the stock cooler.

questions? comments?

p.s: and yes, that IS a jar of applesauce. I Like to eat applesauce when I'm overclocking/benchmarking.

1. Sooo... where's that Freezone going?

2. Applesauce? You mean OC sauce right?

3. What are your temps across the board?

1. the freezone is being traded up to a boreas, via coolit's awesome cusomer service. They're doing it for 180US plus shipping

2. No, it IS applesauce, but you can call it what you want. I dunno why I eat it when I OC, i guess it takes the edge off whenever my computer crashes and I have to reset the CMOS.:biggrin:

3. temps:

OC'ed cpu [min=20C max=52C] (on water I was getting like 30Idle 43Load)
stock cpu [min=9C max=24C]

gpu's idle at 35C load at 50C
NB idle's at 38C maxes around 47C

What, they have OC sauce now!? why wasn't i informed?

As, so instead of water you are using applesauce as the coolant, does this lead to lower temperatures or just a better smelling computer?
