and here ya go


And idk if i should wait for prices to drop on the zr2740w, waiting is so gruesome :/
Fuck ya, thanks man. Just buy it now, even if it does drop in price in a month or so, so what. I'm willing to bet the time you've had with it would be worth that much.

Crest - Yeah I know it's too hot, just wanted to see if I could do it. I'll probably just keep this H50 and put some new fans on it. 4.8 is good enough for now. Don't really think that extra 200mhz is worth spending well over a hundred dollars on. Especially since I only game.

So about a week after I got everything set up and running, I started hearing this constant sound of what sounded like a HDD just doing it's normal read/write sounds. But it was coming from my 212+. Weird I know. I thought it was at first that one of the wires from my back chassis fan, or the 212 itself was clipping it's fan, but that wasn't the case.

So I decided to go in BIOS, turn it off of "Full On", and put it on "Automatic". I turned it to a desired/max temp of 60C, and on fan level 4 out of a possible 9. I literally cannot hear my PC anymore, haha. I'm sitting right now at 4.5Ghz on 31, 29, 34, 26, which is probably about 5C higher than what it was before, but I'm not hearing that noise at all anymore, and it's awesome.

I'm going to play a game for a bit and see if I hear the noise again, and check my temps.
