However, it’s worth it even if you do a fresh build with a great graphics card, like so: Very happy with this project, and would recommend a similar upgrade highly. Re the cooler, it does appear to have all four pushpins in place. Those temps are way too high under a low load if you used thermal compound and have all 4 pins in all the way. Sun Nov 30, 2:

Thanks for the feedback. I am using Real Temp GT 3.

I tried a couple of sticks, one at a time, but will try them all later today. If you have forced one vixeo more in whilst not perfectly seated, one or more will be damaged.

Now I know it’s a question of finesse, jiggling them until they line up properly.

Memory you bought could have bad SPD’s There is only one installed on the front panel. It makes me want to apply computing to applications and scenarios I am not currently applying it to. Even when you account for the 2X faster RAM frequency in the i3 system, the huge L2 in the Xeon should more than make up for it in a lot of cases.


Jun 23, Posts: So that’s probably why I didn’t think much of it when I got a Q and had to push the last one in. One of the four pins had been bent and while everything was secure and firmly mounted, the contact was imperfect.

Then there’s the 5 or so always open tabs, with a couple of Gmail instances, messaging, project mgmt and calendars etc. Is this really a case fan thing?

Some cases have a hole where you can inspect the cooler mounting from behind once you remove the outer shroud of the case. Jul 1, Posts: I have two problems, and I’ll be grateful for some help with these.

I take those CPUBoss scores with a pound of salt as far as their real-world relevance. The X really provides some great value. I’ve tried squashing mounting pins, without the cooler being obviously loose.

Take the motherboard out, turn videi over and see if all 4 are in all the way.

Sun Nov 30, 2: Sometimes you need to flex the motherboard a little to get them in all the way. Now that things are done properly, the temp has dropped to the 20s and 30s.

Look at the plastic pins.

Here’s the manual for it: I suppose I should mention virtualization too. Some folks claim RAM advertised as AMD specific works fine in their Intel boards, while others seems like a smaller subset report issues. I removed the motherboard and only then noticed this issue. Usually, I can launch several instances, which is an easy way to leverage many cores.

Sun Nov 30, 5: The price is a lot higher than the earlier RAM buy, but there you have it. Sat Nov 29,
