Re: Post your Rig!

Whats your temps slim when running your pc at full load while it's over clocked.

I watched the trailer, it has the same look and feel like gta4 with different characters and a different story. Nevertheless I'm still a fan!

Re: Need help with i7 2600 temperatures

I'm using stock cooler and my temps are 32 and 60. run your machine at full load for about half hour and see if it restarts/stalls/bsod. if it doesn't then your board is prob reporting incorrect temps. someone with an intel board should tell you what their temps are. but from what I read on the net ...
