  • I HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!! (new rig)

    I am planning on installing Vista 64.

    Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    Western Digital 500GB OEM
    Diamond Radeon 4870X2
    4GB OCZ DDR2 800
    X-fi Extreme Gamer
    Corsair 750Watt power supply
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.66Ghz
    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS4P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

    I am going to assemble it tonight and OC the hell out of the 9450.

    I may not need to upgrade until 2012 if things keep going like they are. If I need to depending on how far my OC goes I might just get another X2 down the line.

    My old PC will be used for backwards compatibility.

          I am using stock cooling but my case comes with tons of fans.

          Also the big shocker I bought the computer from Microcenter. (retail store in my city)

            same case i have, Antec 900 gaming case. and still had to go with

            something alot better then stock. like i said my cooler has 2- 120mm fans on it

            and i have programs that run all 4 cores at 100% and it gets to 60-63c

            idle with as warm as it is 42-45c gaming 52c and thats with the cooler i posted above and fans are at 100% :)

            just be careful bro, if you go that high on a stock cooler that Q9450

            wont last ya long... like i said im at 2.8 (seems to be a sweet spot with these)

            and you see my temps,,, your talking3.0 and higher,, you'll fry it for sure
