    Racer, I saw your results and had to see for myself. My best 3DMark2001 was 6310 using 12.00's.

    I just did 6616 using the 12.60's.

    The thought that they might be optimized for AMD and GF3 sounded too good to be true, but it is true.

    Or see my results on MadOnion, searching for kenrob@newportnet.com.

    Thanks,
    It cannot be downloaded with DAP 4, if you have DAP 4 (Download Accelerator), you have to press Alt Shift when clicking that direct link. Offcourse the 12.xx is specifically designed for DX8. Under all O/S, the Detonator 12.00 WHQL is the best & most stable.

    CapZap I love your cooling duct, I thought about the same thing but attach the duct to my central air. My case only has 3 80mm fans and heatsink fan for my ram. My current temp. case temp. is 31c. How about a pic to see how you have the duct attached. later.

    Thanks for the compliment, Racer. I guess I didn't say it but I live on the Oregon Coast and outdoor temps don't really go much above 65 F. It's better than A/C cuz it's free!

    I have watercooling stuff on the way and I'm gonna cool the rad in the window.
