  1. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?sku=320-9800&cs=19&c=us&l=en&dgc=CJ&cid=24471&lid=566643&acd=10550055-3224826-3974-24530-nil-6-6-nil better deal. the one you have listed has a premium tag for the aesthetics. plus with the Dell you get a $100 gift card so you could technically purchase 2 for the price of the Asus you have listed
  2. the steambox includes windows 8.1 and an xbox controller. granted yours has more RAM
  3. So Dell is offering 2 different sales. one on the S2340L monitor for $170 with a $100 Dell gift card and the other is a lower tier Steambox, the Alienware Alpha, for $500 and a $50 gift card. so in theory you could buy the monitor and get a $100 gift card good for the Alpha and maybe you can convince a Dell rep to give you both discounts at once. worth a shot to save another $50 Goodluck $520 for a decent rig and a great screen? not too bad
  4. i turned off turbo. voltages stay under 1. and i have the NCASE M1 so thats not gonna fit nor do i really need a new cooler. thanks though
  5. wholeheartedly agree. i would just point to pump failure but i was seeing the same results with the stock heatsink so theres that... clock speeds dont mean better performance. its a pretty damn good CPU
  6. that was my next plan of attack. BIOS update. Im using the Impact VII.
  7. i dont have a laser sensor but i used a thermometer and it capped out at about 50c. so it could be hotter for all i know
  8. http://www.geekbuying.com/category/Android-Tablets-1146/
  9. right but 20c over my avg of ~70c max is still only 90c. and my chip is maybe 5 months old. I doubt 120c+ is due to bad TIM
  10. Thats what im thinking. Is the sensor based off the chip or the socket? i cant remember
  11. but temps that high because of some bad TIM under the lid? i dont think its the AIO thats what i thought. maybe the bios is fucky. but i went in and reset everything and set all fans on max and still nothing. Its in the NCASE M1 so everything is packed in there and everything is always warm however the pump block is warm but i wouldnt say its crazy hot.
  12. but my temps were fine when i first got it. the one thing that scares me more than anything is taking a razor blade to a $350 investment
