You have a great system, but I suspect that the new drivers weren't very good. wiz1 February 25, 2010 12:34:15 PM How do you do that?

MadAdmiral February 25, 2010 2:30:57 PM It's not really needed, but I certainly would think about doing it since you've got the CPU cooler already. It shouldn't be too hard as long as you're not trying to go for a massive overclock. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
