Ok i been playing around with it a lil and i figure this thread is gunna be dead now cos i seem to have figured out what i needed to.

Best superpi 1m so far has been 28.0** running at 3.13ghz memory on 2/3 divider 2-2-2-5 2T

Trying higher speeds then this no matter what voltage dont like to work for me.

I tried the OCCT 30minute stress test and failed it twice at 3020mhz. First time was due to errors after 7minutes running at 1.5v second time was heat after 20mins running at 1.55v.

Ive been playin CSS for a few hours tonite at 3ghz and have found for general computing and gameing 3ghz is stable. I have however lowered my overclock to 2.5ghz 5/6ram untill i get watercooling in a couple weeks. Too be honest ive gotten sick of sitting in a room where the aircon is set to the frozen setting to keep the computer cool.

OK people i need sugestion on what watercooling to get.

Ive seen teh $400 Apex kits which are meant to be pretty damn good but im still undecided if i wanna pay $400 for the kit then have to pay another 70-100 for a waterblock for my vid card.

Is there any other watercooling kits that are a lil cheaper that will cool a very hot opteron 146 and 6800.

I think i remember eva linking to a kit for 280odd but it was only a single 12cm radiator wasnt it? I think im going to need atleast a dual 12cm?



Another option is a guy in my town has some watercooling gear for sale ...

1x Swifttech MCW5000 Waterblock
1x Eheim 1046 Pump
1x Black Ice Extreme II Radiator
2x 120mm sunon fans
hoses are included, as are 2x grills for the fans.

reserve $170


...

selling individual parts now. all of it is still available
I take it the waterblock wouldnt fit but would this be alright if i got a new waterblock?

Another quickie... What disadvantages are there to running 4x 512mb sticks of ram as opposed to 2x1gb... I was thinking of getting some more ram if some came up for cheap on ocau. I currently have a bid for 120 on another matched pair of OCZ VVX. I know with 4 sticks u need to run 2T but i laready run 2T so that shouldnt affect me. What other disadvantages are there?

Would go 2x1gb, so you can add another 2x1gb later if you want
