    Hi there,

    Malakai_guy: I see from your siggy that you're using a Cooler Master Heatpipe, I've been thinking about getting one of these, so I'd be interesting in hearing what you think about it, not really read any reviews yet, but keen to know what people think about it.

    Thanks.

    BTW: UT2k3, great game, installed it and played it without reading any of the docs, and it was real good to play. I'm sure if I read through any of the docs, tips and tweaks posted on this forum, I'd get even more out of it, but right now, I'm more than satisfied.
    It started off when I needed to get a computer, I thought wouldn't it be nice to build 1. And I did, it was small, 300mhz K6-2 but it did the job. Then AMD broke the 1ghz barrier, and I had to have 1, now I just crave power, must have more.....eehahahahahahah

    I played around with UT2K3 last night and for some reason it doesn't feel the same. For starters, using 5 bots, I have to run the game at 800x600x16... then there are the weapons. The Goo gun seems to be much better, but the lightning gun seems useless to me.

    I'm going to play it some more and see... I hope it gets better.

    I love it. Its designed to pull hot air AWAY from the cpu, which is what I want. Previously I had used a Swiftech MCX-370A hsf & I couldn't o/c my cpu OR video card as high as I do now. Plus my case temps ARE LOWER now with all this crazy o/c'ing I've done.

    I'm 385 Mhz overclocked with a 170 fsb, my idle temps are 35-39 & fully loaded (2 hrs of UT) I'm about 41-43. Also consider my Epox 8k3a KT 333CE board reads the temps UNDERNEATH on the xp diode itself (this will show temps 3-4 degrees fahrenheit warmer then temps taken from top of gpu).

    I'd recommend it.

    Hey guys, did any of you frag last night?

    I played from about 930 to 1030 I guess. I didn't see anyone in there though that I recognized from here.

    Jerky: THE LIGHTNING GUN is useless, but I am not so sure that its for good reason. Before online and lan games seemed useless with pros. I AM NOT A PRO, in fact I am pretty bad and can only claim luck when I fry somebody.

    BUT, I think Epic did this for a reason. This time around I can play and at least score some frags because Camping is not an option, the sniper fire isn't constant giving the target a chance to retaliate. As far as camping goes its kinda out of the picture. There are some really good hiding places in the demo maps and I think thats what they were going for. Not so much a tatical advantage over someone, but a chance to kill if the enemies guard is not up. In a match I played onLAN the other day, I won a Team deathmatch by hiding in the cave near the water with the rocket gun. I knew his health was low, cause I had just cleaned out all of the power ups on the left side. I could see him fraggin in the valley to the left. I saw my partner go down and i knew it was him and me and I would have one shot. ONe shot right at his feat sent the KARMA engine in overdrive!

    Just my .o2 though. I am enjoying this game more and more though.

    I took some AMAZIGN SCREENIES of the newer water effects in Morrowind on the 9700. I will post them this afternoon hopefully.

    As far as 800X600, I am getting 60FPS all the way up with 1600X1200 on a Botmatch with 5 bots. You gotta love that!

    This 9700 is hands down the best piece of ATI technology in YEARS! The 8X issue is with the motherboard bios. NOt the Video Card. RAGE 3d has all but confirmed this and I hope to myself tomorrow with a friends kt400 board. I will let you know!

    PEACE

    Hey all, how's it going? Missed me I hope I'm not really back yet - just playing around a bit on the old man's computer in London.

    So, I gather UT2K3 demo is out. Cool. Can't wait to get home now. Hope you're ready for some fragging Jerky And the rest of you frogs too of course.

    Not going to be around properly until Tuesday - normal service will be resumed then. I'll bring you all up to date then. I'll probably be back later, maybe about 5-6pm EST for a couple of hours. I'm only in London 3 days & trying to keep to PST time zone to avoid the inevitable jet lag

    Hi guys. Doesn't it just figure that the first 2 posts when I get here would be Jimz and Namek. Good to see you both. How's it been going?

    Namek. Love London. It's my home town after all. Still miss so much about it. We can chat some later in the week when I get onto a better connection.

    btw, anyone know anything about this Marvin character? Marvin, I know you're going to read this so I think you should know I have my eye on you - I'm just back from 3 weeks away & spent less than 30 minutes on the forum & I've already seen enough of your posts. Careful what you say to Ms T. I think she's shown remarkable restraint with you already. I may not be so easy going

    Methinks Marvin is in for quite a bit of fun. I doubt HE will see that way, but I sure will.

    j1mb0b, hurry back. We miss you terribly!
