    Hi Technochicken. I've never OC'd before. This will be my first attempt. My ambient is also about 30. However, it's been recommended that I go for an aftermarket HSF before attempting an overclock.

    I'll get the Vendetta 2 tomorrow. From what I have managed to find out, it should just about fit my case (CM 690) and I'll have to install the RAM on my first DIMM slot before I fit in the Vendetta.

    Hope all goes well. :)

    unless you have a very high ambient temp Rit, i think it will do fine with the Vendatta, here check this out. The X3 720 seems to run cool in my experience, and i have seen the same in other benchmarks. :)

    note the Vcore

    Perhaps it's only a popular myth red, by Calcutta is supposed to be really hot. Anybody?

    Update; the Washington Post claims it averages 67 degrees F in January, and gets hotter, (and wetter), from there.

    Cap, Rit told me earlier that its hotter there than it is here.
    LOL, i just looked it up on weather.com, 90's for as long as the eye can see

    Dude, anywhere is hotter than Minnesota! Except the land of the MILF Queen, Sarah Palin.

    Time to fire up Ritwik, be careful Rit,it's not so much the ambient temps as much as it is the flies getting caught in the cooling fins. :rolleyes: :haha: :wave:

    :haha: I have read that MN has the biggest temperature swing in the USA, from -60F to 105F, it gets tropical here in the summer......much like where you are.

    Seriously? That's actually hotter than here, but in Philly, it's not so much the heat as the humidity, and lest I forget, the stench and the murder rate.

    yeah, this is a strange place...now if you will excuse me i have to go chew on my wife's boots to soften them up so she can be on her way.

    Sounds like fun! I should have tried to get my wife's boots in the divorce, just a quick sniff would take me back to the good old days. :haha: :stickout:

    "Footnote"; This would have been the place for a "pacman" smiley!

    Her Maiden Name was "Woodworthy"...........

    It's 5.30 AM in Calcutta, so I guess that's why RitWik didn't take the bait on my "flies in the cooling fins" remark". Ah well, there's always tomorrow! :rolleyes:

    Oh, before I forget; http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic133259-2.html as per your referral!

    Hello Captain! I take it that you're passionate about angling??? Fly-fishing is it? :p

    However, I must admit, I'm absolutely lost on where this thread is going!!! :D

    And the ambient temps will be around 30-35C throughout for now. It's the monsoon here, so humidity is high too.

    @ Captain : "Qui es futurus indignans, Ego vos salutant". I don't know any French. Would like to know what it means though. :)

    Thanks.

    Oh..., Look Who's Up....!

    Well technically, since you've made up your mind which CPU cooler you're going to buy, it's concluded. But, since we're having so much fun, it's sort of in a holding pattern. Not to worry though, red and I will probably find someone else to gang up on pretty soon. This of course unless you'd like us to continue wearing out our welcome here.
    I enjoy stating the obvious, simply because you're never wrong when you do. With that thought in mind, I say to you, "well duh, it's always humid when it's raining". :rolleyes:

    Pray, do continue Sir. You'll never outstay your welcome on a thread I've started! :)

    But Captain, I'd still like that translation from French to English. I tried a translation in Google. Made no sense to me. :D

    And BTW, was I correct on my assumption of your interest in angling?

    of course it will take at least both of us to take on the wrath of the Ritwik 7:haha::p

    Well no, I was simply busting on Calcutta.. Flies in your CPU cooler. Heat, flies, monsoons, it doesn't really seem like paradise lost. But, living in "Killadelphia", I share at least part of your plight. Although last Saturday we got 3 inches of rain, so your darn monsoons don't seem that special, at least at the moment.

    Yeah well, it's not Ritwik7 that scares me, it's if he activates Ritwiks 1 through 6. Think how many dumb questions they could come up with collectively. :haha:

    Nah, he wouldn't.

    I might need a hand with this mess though; http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic133250.html

    "Qui es futurus indignans, Ego vos salutant". So you're saying that this is starting to make a bit of sense?

    Did you for once think it did not?

    Ooh...And I checked that thread you linked...Goodness! LOL!

    I know I've asked a lot of stupid questions. Especially to red. You been leaking all that to the Cap, have you, red? LOL!!! :evil:
  23. captaincranky

    captaincranky TechSpot Addict Posts: 9,999   +710

    There, there, now Ritwik, there are no such things as stupid questions , just rude answers. :rolleyes:

    I must admit Cap, that your command over this language is phenomenal. :) Truly admire your cynicism.

    But I'll say that Red has been very patient with me. :D

    Say no more, I'll scold him about that for you.
