I got the thing in.....but still having trouble with turning the pc on. Nothin is still happening. Have re-seated the memory. Have taken out the motherboard and only hooked up the power supply to the atx24pin and 8pin ports. Then used a screwdriver to initiate booting. Nothin.

I atttmepted to try to use my current pc's power supply. Was going to unplug the 24pin and 4pin plug (yes it only has 4 pin) and put them in the new motherboard. Couldnt get the 24pin out. Gave up trying, will try again tonight. (scared of messing up this pc cos then i wont have a pc at all.)

I reckon the motherboard is fucked to be honest. Fucking new board and it is probably busted. Gonna send it back if it is broken. But in anycase will be a long while before i get this pc going. I'm starting to get fed up with it.

I am leaning towards the dead PSU. The only time when motherboard doesn't let PSU to turn on is when it prevents it for safety issues. Like unseated battery in motherboard, somehow grounded motherboard (with a screw touching the case and one of the motheborards connections) or "Clear CMOS" jumper being in the wrong position. That is my experience.
Infact, try clearing the CMOS (bios reset) by placing the jumper into reset position for about 10 seconds then try again. That jumper should be close to the battery.

ur prognosis is correct i fear. I tried that "jumper reset" thing. Same result. So today i bought a PSU tester. I plugged my psu into it and absolutely nothing happened. SO, i guess that means i unluckily bought a dead psu. Didnt think that would happen to me.

I hear it can happen to psu's from any make. It just didnt make transit. Probably got shoved around alot in transit and got damaged.

If you spend more on a CPU than a GPU, you will be very happy with your results. I don't know why people underestimate processors these days.

Because CPU hasn't been a bottleneck for games in ages. Look at my Q6600 for example. One of the first quad cores ever made, back in early 2007 and this cpu still doesn't get fully stressed for Battlefield 3. It is overclocked from 2.4 to 3.6 ghz tho. On the other hand my graphic card is constantly under 100% load. Another example is core i7 920. released in 2008 and it still either outperforms or comes very close to AMD's fastest octacore.
I say at least 4 years will pass before the beast of Core i5 2500k becomes an issue.

yeah they have sent the PSU to the manufacturer. Which makes want to ask them (and i will) why cant they just send a replacement. It would be faster! Cos now i presume i have to wait for the thing to get to wherever OCZ are based then for them to fix it and then forthem to send to overclockers or me direct.

That could take weeks!!

Oh and Jake, i sent a message to Overclockers and they are despatching a new PSU. Told them that i was sure it would have been quicker to get a replacement from them than one from OCZ themselves.

So i should get the psu in the next day or so i reckon. Soon see if the psu works!. Dragging on this pc build i have to say. I'm not buyin from Overclockers again. Ebay and Amazon for me.

Got replacement PSU now. Going to test tonight when i get home. At least this time they have bubble wrapped the box aswell. So they listened to me at least. Whether they tested it before sending (dont think so, as box is unopened), seems not. Anyway, will let you guys know.

All done!! Thanks to Dragan for the help on the operating system. I'm all ready to go. Just installing updates and getting some of my games on it.

what do you guys think to intel's liquid cooling solution for CPUs. Very similar in look to Corsair's liquid cooling products.


Just seen discounts on HD7970's on overclockers!! Card looks beefy. I would like to see how much the 7950's 1gb (if there is such a thing) come out as. Cos i have a feeling they will be probably be as expensive as a 6950 2gb version if not a few pounds more.

Only 7970 from the radeon 7xxx series exists so far. As for the Intel water cooling solution, if memory serves me right, its no better than a mid range air cooling solutions.

H100

"So when testing at 4GHz the H100 was just over 2c warmer than the NH-D14, that was the only test it lost though. I say that in honest shock and I did retest each one several times to make 100% certain. So yes as the graphs suggest when running the H100 at maximum in both the 4.2GHz and 4.4GHz the H100 was cooler than the NH-D14 and only beaten by full on watercooling kits. The trade off of these temperatures is some quite high noise levels, indeed it's far from silent. There's no taking away from the fact when testing the H100 does sit quite nicely between the air coolers and "proper" watercooling kits. "

Overclock3d review

I'm using a NH-D14 in my rig atm, I wouldnt class it as mid range air cooler, Id say it was top when It was out not sure if they have anything bigger now...

What you think. Bit cheap for a 2GB version of the HD6950.
