    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 -- will it cover the memory slots?

    Well, finally got the cooler and a amd 965 but the plastic on the fan was actually touching the memory pushing it to the right, it might have been fine but just took out 4gb of the memory for now. The only way the hsf could be mounted was up or down so faced it that way to have air blowing out...

    Overclock AMD 550 x2 w/ stock hsf

    Hello all. I've never overclocked but would like some advice on temps. Have had this processor since 2009 and do not want to do any extreme overclock, probably something like 3.1 to 3.4 by turning the multiplier to 17. Below are temps with prime95 running for a while, but I don't know which...

    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 -- will it cover the memory slots?

    Judging from this picture it seems the RAM would indeed fit below the fan/heatsink since the memory isn't that tall. Thanks everyone and especially yamawho for posting what is nearly identical to my setup, will be ordering heatsink and processor soon! :biggrin:

    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 -- will it cover the memory slots?

    Sounds great. I do have one more question though. Doing google searches and such you see people talking about backplates and some on youtube comments said AMD AM3 didn't need use of a backplate, not familiar with any of this so what does that mean?

    Ghost/HD imaging software

    I'm also interested in this, instead of making another thread I'll ask here as well. What software to use in order to go to a smaller drive from 500GB to a 150GB WD Raptor, this would be my first time doing anything like this, do they explain very well how to do it?

    Microsoft targets Windows 8 for 2012

    I agree 3 years is too soon, seeing as people like me as well as others had to pay $180 for a retail copy of 7. This could become espically troublesome if you have many computers, but they do have the family pack or whatever. Regardless the way they did XP to Vista was the best IMO, waited a...

    Athlon x3 unlocks to quad core

    There is a fairly high rate of success for unlocking this into a quad core. Everything runs fine at stock settings so I'm not worried, but some of you guys may be wanting to get more out your hardware. Article on it here: AMD Phenom II X2 550 and AMD Athlon II X2 250 Processors Review (page 15)...

    blocking antec 300 side vent

    Yeah dust is a pretty big problem they should have not gave us a side vent/put a filter on it too, however covering it up hasn't effected my airflow too bad and I even have a vid card. I run: AMD phenom ii 3.1gz dual ati 4850 4gb ddr3 With the side covered up, one rosewill $5 fan put in the...

    blocking antec 300 side vent

    This post is kind of old but since I have the antec 300 now figure I would bring it up. I did the same thing as you depicted in the first picture, cut a piece of carboardish material that was on the front of a notebook and made the black part of it face out so you can't even tell it's there...
