So would it just be mad to go from a nforce 750i to a Asus P5QC? or is it better but not by much, so should i go for somthing alot better to make a noticable difference? Cheers

Because i was thinking of upgrading to a ASUS P5Q-E P45 so wanted to know if its worth it?

Thanks

P5Q-E is an amazing board which will trounce your 750i in terms of overclocking potential.

Yeah, P45 is about the best OCing chipset for socket 775, especially with a board as good as that ASUS. 750i isn't that impressive on any board.

Thats just what i wanted to here lol, ye because i want to get better overclocking and iv noticed with that this isnt the mobo for that, but another thing is that the CPU temp will read Core 1 32c and Core 2 34c and it will not bugde from that even when i fitted my water cooling system, i played crysis for an hour or two and nothing! iv tried HWmonitor, Speeedfan you name it, its just stuck at that reading. So im going for the P45 but iv got a choice of 2: Asus p5q Pro Turbo ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo iP45 Socket 775 8 -Channel Audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer Asus p5qD Turbo Asus P5QD Turbo iP45 Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer Also what will make the biggest cooling performance upgrade to my water cooling system? upgrading the Radiator, Pump, reservoir or Cpu Block? Thanks for the help

Go for the P5Q-pro board.

And for the cooling question, go to a 3x120 rad and that will help you the most so far, but then upgrade your block because that one looks pretty cheap.

For the stuck cpu temp, maybe it will go away when you upgrade boards, but it sounds like it just has stuck sensors.

i was thinking tht mobo aswell plus its a lil bit cheaper, as for the cpu block could you recommend a good one at a fair price?

Maybe a apogee GTZ or something now that the newer blocks are out.

So i went for the Asus pro turbo and its so much easier to overclock and so much more to do, but i need more help, i was on my computer last night and a message pops up saying "Hard Disk Failure" and my HDD doesnt stop making noises like notching noises, also my comp has got abit slow and wierd.

So i need help choosing a new HDD, iv got 3 choices there similarin price but different sizes but im not botherd about that.

Western Digital 250GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB 8.9ms Cache - OEM Raid Edition 3 £46

Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB SATA-II 7200rpm 8.9ms 16MB Cache £40

Western Digital 500GB Caviar Black, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache, 8.9 ms £43

So im looking at some with better performance than iv usually had.

Thanks for the help realy apprichiate it.

Black it is then, you know this raid? when you have 2 hard drive's, is it worth having does it actually give you better performance and do you have to have identical hard drive's and exactly the same size? Thanks Kow ciller
