Nice one Steps. Good to see you hitting warpspeed

I'm pretty sure the Noctua won't fit over my Doms either. They will be similar to AMDs but his are faster IIRC.

Don't forget the photos man ! Great choice on boards too, that board wins awards like there is no tomorrow !

cheers bud! i didnt choose it i seen a good deal with that and the cpu and i got the ram bundled in and got £45 off and that left me the extra pennies to splash on the noctua instead of using the true again

ive taken a pic so far (mothers decided to bugger off with the SD card from the camera!) of me strippin my 9800gt for a dusting out as it was running near fermi hot! and so far ive only really disconnected the stuff from the mobo and my gpu's and the case is gonna need to be cleaned aswell its been a while since thats been done properly and dusty isnt the word there's piles of the stuff ha ha

ill take pics once its all finished tho!

Just had an argument (conversation) about cleaning PCs on another forum. Stay away from using nylon brushes and hoovers. Both are killers of components. Either use canned air (air duster) or blow hard.

ive stripped everything out now and im actually attacking the case with a damp cloth since nothing electrical in there anymore

but blowing hard isnt always ideal either cause u have moisture in your breath

Hooverpipe = plastic. Fluff flying up it = generate ESD. ESD = death to components.

Seen it happen twice. I killed two old Optiplex Dells doing it and a mate of mine lost a considerable system last year doing it. PSU, RAM, GPU. In the end he gave up testing and had to buy a new PC.

This is why they make air dusters (canned compressed air) for that very reason.

I use Windowlene because it has vinegar in it that cuts through the muck. On an empty case of course.
