    Screen flickering white to purple

    Ill give a different cable a try again. Yeah its only my secondary monitor so its not important

    Screen flickering white to purple

    Yep, sadly the monitor only has a VGA port and I used a brand new cable, but the problem still persists.
  3. Hey, my second monitor (samsung Syncmaster 2243nw) is starting to die I think. The screen flickers and changes whites to purple. There is also an issue which I cant really describe. Anything on the screen has a kind of shadow drifting off to the right of it, If i have just a blue square on a white the screen it will have a blue shadow to the right of the box, as if its leaking. I should mention that the graphics card (GTX 660) is not at fault because my primary monitor is fine when running on any of the outputs from the card. Sorry if that was a terrible description, but I was wondering if there is anything i can do to fix this or is it just going to be dead soon? Its not the end of the world if it is, the monitor is 4 and a half years old. Thanks

    i5 3570k andH60

    Ok I just set it to 4.0 and auto voltage, according to CPUZ the core voltage hits 1.152 or something at its highest. but after about 10 mins of prime 95 the temps im getting are around 88C on one of the cores.

    i5 3570k andH60

    Yeah the reason i went with the H60 and quiet edition fans was so i could keep it quiet, I am thinking of putting the adapters back on and trying out some overclocks. So i should try keep stress test temps below 80C?
  8. Hey guys, its been a while since I have visited the forums, but I have a question for people with a lot more knowledge than me Im running a i5 3570k with a H60 V2 (2013) in push pull (pulling air from outside the case) with 2 corsair sp120 quiet edition fans, all on a MSI Z77A-G45 motherboard. I have the cpu running the stock clock at the moment, but I am worried about idle temps. I was running the low speed adapters that come with the fans and i was idle at about 38 degrees, and i took them off, now its between 34 and 38. Is this running too hot? i thought it should be between 25 and 30? Under load (prime 95) with the adapters I was reaching around 80 and without im getting around 65-75. Im assuming i should stick with not using the adapters, but is this running too hot? My radiator has been cleaned with compressed air today and the system has plenty of air flow. I really would like to get something like 4.0ghz out of this without too much noise, do you guys think its possible? Thanks Prian

    Stealth Dvd Drive Mod

    Ah crap, I did the front bay mod a few days ago :S http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/11801-my-finished-rig/page-2 Thanks for the heads up though, if anything goes wrong with mine I only have to spend a few pounds to fix it :)

    My Finished Rig

    Thanks a lot guys! I had a small plastic square just lying around which I stuck to the bottom corner of the drive cover, and it was pretty much the perfect size to rest on the button lightly so when i push it opens with no problems. Layering up the tape would also work.

    My Finished Rig

    Yeah its only temporary, I usually only have 1 screen and my rig on the desk, but for now its a bit uncomfortable. I followed this post: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/12141-stealth-dvd-drive-mod/ I open it by pushing lightly on the bottom right corner. Thanks!

    My Finished Rig

    So the title says its finished but its never going to be finished. Inspired by a post on the forum, I have decided to stealth my drive. There is a front view of the cast in the original post and this is how it turned out :) im pleased with it . Also sorry about the terrible lighting, I didnt want to unplug the system and move it :P

    My Finished Rig

    Thanks mate! I have a 24pin extension on the way from bitfenix, and a few black sata cables, which should clean it up nicely :)
