ninjageek Posted October 20, 2008 CID Report Share Posted October 20, 2008 Well I got my upgrades done. Putting in the cpu was simple. The video card was a bit of a challenge, That was my own fault. I went from 4200 to the 6000 dual core, I jumped my video card from the 8600gt to the 8800gt. The only thing about the cpu that I wish I would of done diffrent. Amd for what ever reason made the fan that comes with the heat sink impossible to remove. Its like a rivot type of job. No screws. Easy Fix. I will spend 20 bucks for a new heat sink that has the removable fan. I will replace that. I like to remove the fan and clean the fan and the heat sink with a tooth brush, Not a fan of compressed air. For the 220 bucks the final bill will come to with the new heat sink, I am impressed. Computer a bit faster, Games run tons better. Got a free game with the video card, Frontlines fule of war. This is probally the last I update this computer. Couple of years I will build a new one. So for the cash and the ease of putting everything in, Well worth it. Bites I gotta replace my heat sink. Should of waited for the new heat sink before putting in the cpu. Iive and learn. Learned lots, Not near as freaked out replacing the cpu. Video card was super long but fit ok. May hit staples and get a 3rd party cooling fan for the video card. Unsure. There ya go. Now I am sure everyone will sleep better with that pointless information. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
