Polls for Car / Car Class, Tracks, Race Formats etc will be opened from Friday 10th July until Friday 24th July to allow people time to vote. Registration will commence thereafter. Please discuss any add-on tracks or cars which you would like to be considered for use in the league below.
Car and track add ons should be scratch built or legal conversions. Illegal mods will not be considered.
I am out for the league.. Seems that I have to buy some new hardware, specially CPU - isn´t working as it should right now and I won´t be able to buy some new stuff until my birthday in Sepember, so as I said I am out. Sry guys - I was really looking forward to race with and against you during the summer. Cant even do some races on Spa server anymore..
But I will still visit the forum and help out as much as I can!
Sad days indeed, could you tell us what variety of CPU you are using as you never know someone might have one under the bed, in a trunk or holding a door open. I know your pain oh too well as my Mobo took out a stick of RAM and tried to kill a GPU as well. Here's crossing fingers that we can get you back on track sooner than later.
This is the CPU I am using right now. But the main problem is that the CPU-fan is not cooling as it should since I changed all my hardware to my new case. Before, the fan did around 3300 rpm at 100% but now it only does 2200/2300 rpm at 100%.
HAYABUSA, did you check the temps of your CPU cores under load? Maybe your new case has better airflow and there's no need for the cooler to run on 3K RPM anymore. BTW, my cooler never goes above 1200 and I'm using an overclocked i5-3570K which runs kinda hot. But that is not a stock cooler (Thermalright True Spirit 140)
60°C and 100% fan speed just by listening music and writing this post! And when I tried to drive with you and gary yesterday the temp went up to 80°C after a minute. Nearly burned down my new case and everything else, lol.
But I already know what the problem is. The fan slipped off the cpu when I changed the case. I bought a new cpu-fan with better performance (should be enough until the end of the year and after 4 years without doing anything to my cpu it was about time ^^). So maybe I don´t have to miss the league . The fan will be delivered tomorrow or on saturday and if I am not lazy I should be able to join you guys on saturday evening!
Do you have a good cleaning regime, fans, heatsinks? This sounds like either too much thermal paste, old paste or a dusty heatsink/fan. Somehow missed your last post, good to hear you have got to the problem at hand and sorted it out. YEEHAW!
billwiskins: No, was a close call and I had no idea what happened but you pulled over to the inside just in time soa ll good

TDS: very hot day and OC cpu went bananas and froze the pc :-( turned off oc for good) dont want a 747 turbine fan for it to not crash on hot days, and the fps gain overclocking is very very little something like 5 fps. not worth it
