When I first booted up my linux machine I went through the normal tweak/configure the bios step. I noticed it had a safety feature to shut the pc down at a certain temp so I set it to 65c. After a while I noticed that the pc was just shutting down without warning so I knew what was up. The problem is that one of the clips on the black retention bracket is snapped off and the HSF isnt being held down all the way.

I managed to get the temps down to about 47c Idle with just hot glue, but if I push just a little harder down on the HSF the temps drop to a nice 42c. Any ideas on how I could fix this? If not, what is a good, _cheap_, hsf that would involve me taking out this bracket to put the new one on.

Ive attached a picture, its a bit blurry but you can see what I mean. Thanks intel/ecs for such cheap plastic ****! :cuss2:

yea like cooliscool said, stop by your local computer store, and they are bound to have spare retention brackets...those huge circular hsf's (like the one i bought for hushy) require you to remove the stock bracket, and they cost around $35 US.

reich, you could also just get another HSF that requires the retention bracket removed :)
Gonna pick up the replacement bracket tomorrow I hope, I would get a better hsf if they were only... free :p

$9.99 (CAD) is better than anything else, and the stock hsf will do just fine.

I removed the broken bracket a few minutes ago. After a while of curse words I managed to scrape my screwdriver against the board twice :hdbash: Hopefully it still works, they werent tooo bad :p

What's macro? I assume it's a timer where the camera will find the most stable time to take a pic then it snaps. Jesus christ Reich, those pics are hella blurry. :p

If so, mine has it. :p If not, can you explain it hushy?

edit: nm, google fixed me up. Also.. my cam has macro, and it fecking rocks. I wish I would have known this sooner. :???: It helps so much on close ups. :thumb:

heh, you could've just asked me :rolleyes: (not like you woulda known)

reich, your camera doesnt have it. you have the same camera as eternal11 btw. basically, it changes the focal length. normally it's, say, 2 feet to infinity, but this changes it to 6 inches to 50 feet or something like that.
