It looks sweet! Good luck with it.

I like how everyone here names all the members here by their CF name and everyone just calls me Rohan, haha. I don't mind, it's just funny.

GJDM.

Nice modding and overclock with the stock cooler. I often do that when I'm running an open test bed outside the case and there's no airflow.

i dont think it will make it past 2 hours though... the heatsink is too small, itll jump to 70C+ soon regardless of airflow..

Congrats on the new rig. My first one was a hunk of junk (even when I bought it), but I still have the same hdd from it lol. Yours looks a lot better than my first rig too, I had the silly mercedes benz case with loads of lights and whatnot. It was so cheesy.

Default Re: First Build Finished.

well apparently my voltage was too high, my mobo adds alittle more by itself i guess. which is why i was getting 70C+ temps

when i set vcore to 1.450, bios hardware monitor says vcore is at 1.475
when i set vcore to 1.437, bios hardware monitor says vocre is at 1.466

yeah its weird but now that i know that i need to volt it down alittle im getting better temps.. does anyone elses mobo do that??
