You have a sweet rig; now go and enjoy pushing it until it screams "Enough!". And the Antec Earthwatts is not a "crappy" PSU. 500W for your rig is plenty and the Antec will provide stable volts.

Sorry, it's an antec smartpower, the earthwatts is in the upstairs pc.

Ill update my sig...

Got it at 3.0ghz (ddr1000) on stock voltages, these crucials wont go past 1066 on 2 volts, might try upping it and see.

TAT has it at 50*C, onboard sensor at 43*



side note: this ds3L came with eazytune5, but also ETC (easy tune center) anyone tried it, it RULES as a little program, cpu-z, parts of everest and eztune without all the BS, nice simple interface, I love it. Wasnt on the cd that came with my other ds3l...

np, but I don't know the Smartpower series. If you go higher FSB-wise, don't forget to cool the NB and SB on the DS3L - they run hot!

I don't know about Easy Tune Center. I'll check it out. Thanks!

Turns out at 3.0 it was upping the voltage, got that sorted.

At 2.75ghz/1100ddr on stock voltage its 43*C with TAT after an hour at full load, schweet

good to see you got your pc up and running.
now tear it apart and give that puppy's interior a paint job. you'll be amazed at the overall effect (if you can see past the clutter)

That looks pretty sweet! But we are more interested in your Freezone Cooler....how does it run...show us temps.....and did you mod it?

Please?

sorry to disappoint you there Prof, but, no oc done at all. still green in that dept.
as far the Freezone goes, when i first put this thing together it used to idle between 27 and 34 degrees. ( core #3 is was about 6 deg. lower than the other cores). Since then, i idle between 34 and 40 deg. ( core #2 the lowest one now) so says Core Temp.
Speed Fan gives me much nicer numbers. 27C, 27C, 20C,24C at idle.almost 10 deg. lower across the board. not sure which one is more accurate though between the two.

i never did change the tim like i wanted to (used the stock paste that came with the Coolit). thinking i'm gonna change paste and maybe lap the block some, now that i'm more aware of what better temps should look like.
