I was wondering what i can do to make my system cooler with the use of peltiers or refridgeration....i have an amd duron 850 o\c to 952, an nvidia gforce2 gts running at 240 gpu and 360 ram. my system memory is running at 145 and im using a cheap mobo...my cooling system consist of a little giant subermisable 120gph pump, an air conditioner evaporator out of a dodge colt (its about 12"x12" and 1 1\8" thick) o\c hideout's blueboy water block on the cpu and the gpu and about 6' of nylon 3\8" tubing.. i dont think im overheating cause the water blocks are cool to the touch but im locking in unreal tournament sometimes with half the screen black........ by the way .the pump is sitting in 2 gallons of distilled water with about 1\3 of that antifreeze......... please help

Can you adjust the voltage in bios? It sounds like you have great cooling it just might be that the cpu needs more voltage to be totaly stable. Give that a try and see if it helps.

could it be that the vid card overheating?

Try lowering the OC and try again after letting it cool down.


Just a guess..........
