A little big PC
Good setup, by any means.
What exactly prevented you from removing the 80mm fan from Kozuti? Surely its presence there somehow affects the temps - not a big deal, but there should be some difference.
What is the VGA fanspeed in idle & under load? I'm asking as I have a similar card (5850 Xtreme) with a cooler transplanted from 5830 Extreme - both fans spin at <1100 w/o load. This is quiet enough for me, but I'm just wondering if 6580 Xtreme is any better in this regard.
For a new SSD go Crucial M4. A reliable and quick drive. Surely not as impressive on paper as SF 2281 drives, but equally fast in real life and will not bonkers.
This one is really important for me - could you please check your mobo bios for OC options for your i5 2400? Specifically, can you bump the clock from to 3.1 GHz to 3.5 GHz by changing the multiplier for 4 cores (w/o Turbo)? I'm asking because I can do that on my P67 + i5 2400, and I'm just wondering if this can be done on a H61/H67 board. Mind you, this is regardless of the Turbo technology. I've started a thread on this - clik me!
- see it for more details and explanation. Your feedback would be most appreciated!
