    Oh it's been said, by many, many people. Google just turn around and say you don't need it, it won't make it run faster and ignore the users.

    searching multi core or 64bit gives some idea of the enotmity of feeling. And after you've read through a few posts, you realise that one paragraph is repeated verbatim over, and over, and over, and over, and over sometimes several times in one topic.

    "This is a topic which has been discussed extensively in these forums. While it is true that 64-bit processing gives applications access to more memory, it also remains true that few (if any) processes inside SketchUp require that much memory to complete their work. Put another way, memory isn't the bottleneck for the processes where folks want to see improved performance. To use your example, making changes and then sending the model back to the renderer would not be improved by access to more memory."

    Sitting, waiting fifteen minutes or more for a simple move to sort it's self out with one core at 100% and the other three idleing. Sketchup using 2.4Gig of memory the rest of it's addressable space being my GPU the remaining 1.6gig going to waste. It was even more frustrating before my ram blew up and got lost in the RMA ether, then I had over 5gigs sitting doing nothing!

    Solidworks, vectorworks, autocad, rhino etc. all support (or even recommend) a 64bit environment. Now in some respects the guy from Google is correct, many of the drawing tasks are done on one core, even in the programs that are 64bit and support multi core systems (I feel this is because no one's willing to do a complete re-write and face all the costs involved therein, but there could be some honest reason for this...) but offloading anything and everything else onto other cores can only speed it up, and more RAM, for heaven's sake we need more addressable RAM!

    Sorry for the delay in getting these to you!

    1.) 2mm
    2.) 12mm
    3.) 6mm
    4.) 6mm
    5.) 3mm

    The grooves are 1mm wide, and no more than .5mm deep. I would describe them as a simple 'U' shape. No flat surfaces.

    I hope that helps!

    Thanks man that's great.

    I didn't ask for the overall height and diameter because I got them from the MNPCtech site, but now comparing them to your measurements they don't seem to make sense, so could you measure a couple more for me?

    a) overall diameter
    b) overall height (including protruding rubber)
    c) height of aluminium section only

    cheers again dude

    Wow that figures then if only 32bit & 1 core only lol, shame because sketchup is awesome for my needs, even my own no thrills models can lag a little so hopefully google will make it multicore enabled in the future, I just don't like lag or potential bugsplats on unsaved work :eeek:.
    I'll say again though absolutely awesome model collection :thumb:.

    Tried again; I get a 503 "Service Temporarily Unavailable" error.

    BTW Jez did you get my update to the Socket1156 a few posts back?

    It's the hosting, dreamhost is good/cheap but does have occasional issues with downtime.
    I know it's a bitch, but do you mind trying again one more time?

    I must have missed your post re the 1156 somehow. Have now updated it.

    Still not working.

    Also (maybe this is pedantic but) could you update the thumbnail image for the 1156 as well please Jez?

    Working for me - what error do you get?
    Not pedantic, but I have updated the thumbnail, try a force-refresh.

    Force refresh of course, should have thought of that.


    as for the error, here's a screen cap for you:

    G'day guys. Very excited to find this forum!

    I have a mate who uses Solidworks and he's coming over next week to help me model some parts for my watercooling project and I was wondering if anyone here had some computer/component solidworks models that they could give me/direct me to to get him started? Seems all the models I can see here are Shetchup.

    I am after all the usual parts esp those hard to get ones related to watercooling like pumps, rads and res's...
    Pump - will be a Laing D5 Variable Speed Pump
    Rad - Black Ice SR1 280
    Res - MCRES micro res. v2
    Connectors - compression fittings
    Mobo - need a model
    14cm fans - need a model

    I have the following models....
    PC case/bits - have some samples but would like more
    PSU - have a model - but would like more
    CD/DVD - have a model
    Hard Drive - have a model
    SSD - have a model

    Not really fussed if I do not get exact items (yeah dreaming I know)...but thought I'd ask before I or a mate make them up.

    This is not about the prettyest models, but more to see how I can make it all fit in my Antec Super Lanboy.

    Thanks so much - you guys are just amazing with those models!
    Dav.
