    I just got mine... Rigged it with 2 120mm fans.

    30 idle, so far a max of 47 under a one minute furmark run.

    Not to mention... No noise. Normally, I'd start furmark and it would sound like a jet...

    Good to hear. Thinking about ordering the AC S1 myself, as my stock fan doesn't seem to quite cut it. However, I'm going to try a few more things, first, as most newegg reviews say this cooler works...

    Should be good, Silk. From what I've seen, the AC one performs a little better than that Zalman you linked, anyways. The biggest concern is to make sure you get some form of cooling on the VRM....

    I'm actually willing to bet it could run crossfire 4870's, but under the long term I bet it'd be stressful on the unit.

    Regardless, I decided that I don't plan to do crossfire anytime too soon,...

    I ended up ordering the 650TX, due to being cheaper and still more than powerful enough. Thanks for the advice, everyone.

    That's true, and while I don't right now, I want to keep all my options open, not to mention give me plenty of overhead, as since this is a PSU with a five year warranty, to me that means I'll use it...

    PC P&C Vs Corsair

    Ok, so I'm contemplating a new Phenom II proc, and I want a new power supply to go with it.

    RMA'ing it. Played Crysis Warhead for an hour, temps from 65-75 for all that time, quit, once my GPU cooled off got a BSOD. I'm tired of troubleshooting this, and I'm going to hope this was just this...

    Alright, so almost everything plays nice now, except my original problem still seems to be happening. My game will hiccup, and it'll seem like a normal drop in framerate, as the music keeps going,...

    Actually, even when my fan speed is allowed to ramp up to 100%, it still gets to 95c in furmark. I haven't let it run long enough to crash.

    Before I adjusted the fan speeds, it got up past 100.

    It's possible. But at the moment everything's stable where it is, so I'm going to leave it alone.

    And turning off Catalyst AI fixed my problem with Warhead, still trying other things. I'm actually...

    Oddly enough, I can't, really. This cpu is being really weird, and it's not stable at stock speeds. Even when I tweak the voltage.

    I created a custom fan profile which causes the fan to kick in a little more aggressively, and it seems to be better. I've got a while to decide whether I'm going to RMA it, but it seems like it...

    As far as I can tell, while the crashing happens under load, I can't say it's due to temperature.

    The fan scales with the core temp, and in most situations keeps it pretty reasonable. Usually...

    4870 instability

    I just got a Sapphire 4870 100259-1GL yesterday, and I'm both pleased and peeved.
    When it works, it's 2-3 times faster than my 9600GT.

    It's had issues with every game I've tried so far, repeated...

    Whiny 9600GT?

    I have a BFG 9600GT OCX, and while it performs admirably, it emits a slight high pitched whining noise. I'm sure its the card, and it's starting to drive me crazy. Anyone know anything about...
