    The article I read was in brief but if you google it you can find a few sites that say when overclocked it does get hotter than S.B, I didnt in anyway say that its fact did it.

    It overclocks differently than SB. If you try overclocking it like a SB processor than you will get poor results and high temps.

    Well I got everything now installed except the dam Corsair liquid cooler I didnt realise how bloody big the thing was so I need a new case I've seen a real nice PC case with the PSU at the bottom should be alright to install it, the issue is really the pipes aint as flexible as I would of liked but they do hold water in so thus why they are that strong.

    But you need to install a FAN in the front of the place radiator behind that then another fan at the back to drag air in according to the set-up guide ???? when I get to install it I'll try both ways. Got 7.9 across the board nearly the 2600k only gives me 7.6 but I aint got turbo mode enabled I will once cooler is installed.

    Try to get Win 7 as soon as possible. Or, you could wait for 8.

    I'm rubbish with computer specs, can someone help me find the best laptop I can get for under 1000 (Preferably not over 800)?

    Basically I need as powerful a beast that comes under that price range. I do have a desktop, though it is pretty outdated (2007) and my current laptop is a Dell Studio from 2008.

    What you need to know is I am a Computer Animation student. I need to run lots of graphic intensive software like Maya, 3dsMax and ZBrush. My current laptop runs these fine, though the render times are pretty abysmal and as I am creating more and more intensive things it is starting to crash more and more altogether. It is also starting to overheat quite quickly, so I am scared its on its last legs.

    Any advice. (I need a laptop because I travel so much and I am a student).
    Trophy-licious!

    I would just upgrade the desktop and use that for the rendering you could have loads of RAM overclock it to heck and it still run cooler than a laptop and be cheaper.

    My guress is your laptop runs out of memory so crashes.

    I didnt think the GPU was used as much for browsing on mine below I can here fans but I think it's the stock cooler to the 2600k the 7850 is at 40 on mine which I think is bloody high and I only am browsing the web myself

    Think I need some new fans but I am moving to a bigger case a full ATX tower with PSU at the bottom so I can then fit my H80 cooler currently it won't fit because the PSU at the top is too close to the the 120mm extractor spot on my current case plus it's a mid ATX one.

    Try something like Sapphire's TriXX instead? You can map your own fan curve in it.



    I just finished my budget build:
    asrock z77 motherboard
    i3-2120
    8gb G.skill ripjaws
    Corsair tx650 psu
    xfx radeon 7850
    Fractal Designs Define black pearl case
    A samsung spinpoint tb drive.

    The i3 will get ripped out and used in a budget build later for my mom or something, a sb 2500k will be swapped in with a watercooling solution. An ssd is also planned. In the meantime I can pc game again!

    Noticeable (substantially). In addition the card runs cooler and uses considerably less power. Also less noise!

    So in all its a pretty large upgrade.

    That's the best thing about the 6xx series, they're such a huge improvement over the 5xx series that I'm happy spending the money I did at launch. Runs even cooler and quieter than my 285GTX and that was really quiet!

    As for me this is my current spec:
    • Case: Antec P180
    • Mobo: Asus M4A785TD-V Evo
    • CPU: Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition II
    • RAM: Corsair 8GB (4x 2GB)
    • GFX: KFA2 (BFG) GTX 680
    • PSU: Seasonix X-650
    • Sound: Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Platinum
    • SSD: Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2/64GB
    • HDD: Samsung HD7531J 750GB
    • BDRW: LG BH10LS30
    • Monitor: Samsung S23A700D (x3)

    However I've just done a new upgrade and the parts should come tomorrow, going to be replacing the above in red with these:
    • CPU: Intel i7 3820
    • Mobo: Gigabyte X79-UD3 (Socket 2011)
    • RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 PC3-17000C11 2133MHz
    • Case: Antec P280
    • HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer i30
    • SSD: Samsung 128GB 830
    • K/B: Logitech G19

    All for 740 inc P&P, I think that means that I've spent 1500 this year on a completely new PC... Anyone want some parts or even have a cheap base PC from my old stuff?
