View Full Version : NB-1 on a REX issue!
03-15-2011, 09:01 PM
Hey Vince and everybody else.
Ive just bought the nb-1 and the extention for the gemini, but I have one q:
Mounting the NB-1 on the mobo, do I need to take off the complete stock cooling(nb, sb, mosfets etc)? Or can I just take of the nb sink and put the pot on the nb base sink? (leaving the heatsinks and pipes for the rest of mobo on).
Not sure if I have used the right words to explain the issue. I need to figure this out very soon couse I plan to do some ln2 benching early april :)
Thnx in advance for the answers given:)

you don't want to cool the whole board...
i suggest removing the mobo heatsink...
and use independent heatsinks on the vregs(cpu and nb).. and southbridge

yah dude, remove that whole heatsink assemblyand sink all the fets seperately then mount the cooler right to the board.

Thnx very much for the quick respone:). Ill start right away looking for some cooling. Hopefully it wont be a problem getting what i need.
Thnx yet again...

Sr for double posting:(
Can somebody that have done this on a REX guide/tell what sinks I need? i would have done this my self and I can find some here in norway etc, but Im @ work for 14 days and o/c I dont have the REX with me. Thnking about measurments(length, width etc), and o/c what parts would be good to use.
Sorry for the hassle but i would appriceate all help very much:)

You can see one my website :), itīs write in portugese, but if you have any question let me know!! :)

I cant understand what it says on Ur site:(. Tried using google translator, but no luck finding out what U have used for the different chips etc. I can see on one or two of the pictures that U have used a copper sink on the top of mobo and on the left side of the cpu. But I still need to find the right ones to use... U mind?:).
I cant say with words how noobish this is but if I just had the mobo where I am there would be no probs.

Enzotech MST-81, two of those will take care of the CPU VRM. Looks like FrozenCPU has a few left.

I ended up buying this @ frozencpu:
2x Enzo Tech MSt81 for mosfetīs
1x Enxo Tech SLF-1 for sb
Some thermal pads
mos c1 for mosfets
and some thermal tape.
Thnx again all that have helped me out on this one:)

Reports the events! :)

I will:). I might try to look into livestream.com but I only have a microsoft live cam(720p I think). What I will be running in my first bench is a e84,85 and a 86. Have a bunch of 65nm chips to but I cant get past 500-525 fsb on those chips. That on air that is. But the 45 nm`s I can get past 600-630 fsb.
How far can I push the voltage for fsb term and nb volt when I use the NB-1?

If you're under -50, 1.8+ vnb is OK
03-17-2011, 06:14 PM
Thnx yet again:)
EDIT: BTW how can I see status on shipping etc for bought parts?
03-17-2011, 07:32 PM
Go slowly up the nb voltage, you'll have a point where you will not get more help! :)
Attempts to get around the -10/-20 on nb gtl!! My board donīt like over -40 :(
03-18-2011, 03:07 AM
Ok I will try with that. When using the rotary phase I had the nb gtl @ +30/40. That was with a fsb of 625. Havent got the OC of intel in my blood yet so Im totaly new to this plattform/intel...

Might have started a new thread but Ill just try here:)
Any vcore and vdrop mods for the rex and a p5q3? Wanna do some celerons on the p5q3:)
04-07-2011, 05:35 PM
i am not a pro as most guys here are.
But why you need a vcore and vdrop mod on rex?
04-07-2011, 05:56 PM
Well basicly its the p5q3 that I want a vmod. Only checking if there are any for the rex since i got one. IF I ever was gonna do a mod. Cant recall having issues with vdrop on rex tho.
But thnx for asking :)
