Howdy!



If you still have the SSD why don't you use it strictly as a Windows 7 boot drive?

my new toy! the compaq mini 311c

it's a big netbook (almost exactly A4 paper sized) with 11.6" screen with nvidia ion gpu @ 1366x768

only got 1 gig o' DDR3 at the moment, but will take two more.

standard 1.6 ghz atom cpu - but i've already had it up past 2 ghz, and am contemplating flashing a hacked bios i found to give more o/c options. i'm having some nostalgic fun playing half-life 2 to test for stabilty.

it's not a gaming machine by any means, but overclocked and for a quick bit of fun on the train, i've been playing hl2 (on low settings) quite smoothly - there are videos on youtube of people playing cod 4, bioshock, even a tweaked-down crysis! the touchpad (and the cpu) is more of a limiting factor than the framrate. the ion gfx chip does seem like overkill in a netbook - but i don't mind at all, and i still get great battery life!

dual booting at the moment. one's a super stripped-to-the-bone xp for occasional games - the other is a standard 7 home premium day-to-day desktop. xp seems to give 10-20% better gaming framerate than 7 on this machine - must be the drivers...

all in all, i'm falling in love with this little puppy, and i can't believe it was so cheap!

On a netbook....? Wow. That's one seriously impressive OC. I never actually thought of even trying to overclock one. Nicely done..

Heres mine now that it got cleaned and rebuilt,I took everything out gave it all a good clean.

Things changed:

  • Installed Cold Cathodes
  • Added 80mm fan at bottom
  • Added DVD-RW drive
  • Cable management
  • Hooked all fans to Fan controller (Exept Gpu fan)


80% done



Before it was horrible,I couldn't even shut the back panel because there was so many cables, i couldn't compact them in anymore but now ive done it,the door now shuts properly and no cables are in the way :P

I like my PSU but its cables are way too short ,I had to buy a Cpu power extension cable+ 24Pin cable extension too.

4890 has been taken apart,cleaned...re-applied thermal paste and new Thermal pads on the cards Memory and VRM.
I was going to buy a new GPU cooler,But they all have problems cooling the VRMs on the 4890s for some reason,There was one cooler i came across that was okay for the 4890 because you could buy a separete VRM cooler but it was and i was not willing to spend that much.




And the finished product:


I will get an inside shot tommorow

Wow I would never think to pull apart a video card to clean it. Seems like a lot of work when a blast of air could get 80+ percent of the build up. It's amazing to me just how much stuff these systems suck into themselves and how a good blast of air and Q-tips can fix them up. I'm also fond of an old tooth brush for the pcb's. Anyone got any tips on their system cleaning. Nice system and good cable management!
