I don't know about the rest of you, but for my case, open is actually worst for temps. I just built a C2D 6300 with a P180B and GigaByte G965-DS3 board. My NB gets very hot - way too hot to touch. I had a clearance problem since I use a Sythic (Infinity - I think the Nija is a better cooler). I use ...

Looks good. No Firewire. Doesn't seem to have memory issue like other P965. ICH8R and not the ICH8 southbridge.

Now, where can I buy one!

Here are my changes so far based on fellow SPCR members. PS: I will go with the Seasonic and maybe the next model up since I read that it maybe cooler due to larger heatsinks.

I think the neat thing about it is that you should be able to mount it with the heatpipes pointing in any direction, so you've got four different directions to point the thing, to avoid obstructions and get the fins in some airflow. But people buying it will certainly want to spend some time with t...

One good thing about newegg is that they keep their records of transaction back to when I first join. The bad news is that I should have RMA it about a two month back when the issue first started because the card is about a month over the warrenty period.

My biggest problem w/ these pumps are that it is direct drive. If the seal on the shaft wears out, your pump is gone. This is one of the reason why a lot of people use Eheim and that is the reason why the Eheim is larger and can only produce the same amount of lift as the c-system pump. This is also...
