I'd like to hear news on that Aqua PC solution. Looks very interesting/promising.
There is no way our board would work on Auto - that crapped out well before 1100MHz, I had to significantly play for ages with the extra timings and clock skews to get it stable at 1142. It would do 1150, but it wouldn't complete most of the benchmarks.
I don't see what you've got against Micron D9s so much, our pair of 2GB kits of OCZ 9200 and Kingston 9200 use them and we've been overvolting them in probably 50+ systems for over a year now. These 4GB are apparently Elpida (OCZ themselves said), but I've also been told the likelihood of PSC is also high because it's what everyone else uses, however we wouldn't be surprised if OCZ bought the entire lot of Elpida's at a bargain price so that's how it can charge £80 less than Corsair.
But again these are 4GB kits of 800/1066MHz that are binned and overclocked to do 1150MHz - you don't own "1,200MHz ICs", no one makes 1200 chips - the frequency doesnt exist outside of overclocking, only recently (last 6 months) Micron have started to make 1066 at 1.8V for Phenom. http://www.micron.com/products/dram/ddr2/partlist.aspx?den=2Gb there's already "C7" stuff in production.
Very nice products indeed. Currently I only have my CPU liquid cooled because of overclocking but I am also thinking of liquid cooling my GTX 280 graphics card, since I have the LianLi PC-P80 case (black ver.) I have a fantastic amount of free space and a very large radiator so if for no other reason atleast it will look cool (thanks UV reactive liquid).
I have one question which may sound a little noobish but I admit that I am new to the liquid cooling scene, so, what I want to know is what you guys meen by "seperate loop". For example, I have one pump and a loop cooling my CPU, now I want to cool my graphics, does this mean I should buy a new pump, radiator, and everything else? Thanks in advance for any knoledge sharing that I know goes on a lot in the great world of Bit-Tech.
Proberbly because they want to make the "on-board radiator" touch more air rather than just spreading the heat around and trying to squeese it from some tiny prongs.
Am I the only one that was severely unimpressed with these modules? On Everest my ddr2-1000 memory modules (overclocked from ddr2-800) trash these ones in the memory tests. My processor is running slower, since its an E8400, all ive done is increase the memory devider from 1:1 to 1:1.25.
I'm not implying the results are wrong or anything, I'm just wondering why my modules, which are admittedly quite cheap, managed higher scores. Not sure if the fact that I have 8gb total capacity would impact the performance, but so far thats my only explaination.
