    Well, unless I missed something, and that's entirely possible, I think I got my 4.0GHz Overclock. Thanks so much to all who helped and those who encouraged, especially Ted, who suggested the upgrade and initial OC instructions to start, and to wombat666 and Butcherbird17 for looking over my shoulder! Below are my current OC settings. Intel i7 960 OC to 4GHz Settings ASUS P6T SE BIOS Rev. 908 ADJUSTED BIOS SETTINGS AI OVER CLOCK SETTINGS..............MANUAL

    According to this Italian newspaper, Max Verstappen, son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen is about to announce a deal with Mercedes F1 and will soon test the 2012 model! Max is just 16 years old, but last season won every karting championship he entered, broke a few lap records in Formula Renault 2.0 winter testing and is now underway in his first ever full season in race car. He choose to start his career in the strong European F3 championship where he is currently in P2 after having won six races in a row in Belgium and on the Norisring. And now already to GP2 and possibly F1! Translation:

    Oh, man, forgot all about your engine rebuild. Can be very frustrating. MoBo is staying in the high 30 C range during testing according to QFan3 but QF is off by about 7 C low when compared to RealTemp370 on core temps, so that would put the MoBo in the mid to High 40 C range when testing. Fans all blowing in the "correct" direction, and I'm looking for space to add a couple more. Thanks very much. I'm so new at this I second guess almost every adjustment before I pull the trigger! But, I think I'm getting there.

    @wombat666...the Noctua I have totally fills the space available, which I'm sure are probably well aware!:dizzy: The one in the ad you posted looks like they took my cooler, split the radiator and moved one of the fans between the radiator halves! :mixed-smiley-010: I'll definitely look at adding another fan, possibly 2. I'm still moving Vcore down but I don't think there's much more room before it bottoms out. Las t resort will be to back off the OC @Joe...Georgia, yeah, HOT! You ought 'a know a bit about heat and humidity! Still backing down on Vcore looking for the sweet spot. This is my first attempt to OC and I'm trying to be very careful with each step. Thanks guys. I will continue to tinker, methodically!

    Hey Bill, If your familiar with FS Recorder, that's the way to go. Just set up a primary flight parked where you want it and record it giving yourself the length of time you need to "pose" the other two. Works pretty well, I used it just for such. Steve

    If the left rear contact point has proper static compression and max-static ratio (with no missing commas, or improper punctuation) and properly sequenced contact points within the limits stated, then I would agree it is a model issue with the suspension part name, or a duplicate part name, or failure to animate it.

    Thank you Tom; perfecto! I was hoping that you would post this. :-) "I also use the home grid to set even spacings for the vertices making up these splines." This is a great idea; it's the part I always have trouble with.

    Looks great and somehow this pilot looks quite familiar :encouragement: Perhaps the weathering should be reduced a bit as the aircraft is much newer here than in the "orange markings" version. (just a thought). And NL2000 is indeed beautiful scenery and certainly the best value for money (free!) Cheers, Huub

    Nice shot Arjan, especially the last one, very recognisable as this was THE spotters place for NAS Valkenburg. The greenhouses are still there, but they don't look as good as they look at you screenshot. The small road is still there and I cycle there several times every week. Cheers, Huub

    In the recent past some people weren't able to find this thread anymore. As there currently isn't anything to report in this thread it might become become "invisible" for those who have selected just to look at last months threads. So personally I think its great free service from Pat. Its easier to ignore a thread you are not interested in than to read a thread you can't find. Just my personal opinion, Huub

    To put things on a smaller yet just as heartbreaking scale: 192 or 193 out of the 298 people on board MH17 had the Dutch nationality. My best friend for 47 years is totally devestated as, till the moment of the downing of the airplane, he was a teacher of two of them (boys 15 and 16 years of age). They perished together with their parents. Of course I'm shattered too. That's all I have to say. My thoughts go out to all victims, their families and their loved ones. Maarten

  1. Hello Maarten :-)

    Wow! That would be great. I'll send you the address in a PM.

    Thank you very much! :-)


    Hi Milton,

    Hope you're well.

    I realized to day that I have a very interesting e-book on my hard disk entitled "Stoof Driver - Flying the Grumman S-2 Tracker" by Mike Ray (private publication, 2003). It is about 300 pages "thick" and contains a treasure of photos, colour and b/w, many of great quality. Not only of the "Stoof" (S-2) but also the FUDD (E-1 Tracer). if you are interested I will be more than happy copying it for you and the project.

    Just let me know and send me your address so I can send it really quickly to you if you want it.

    Best regards,
    Maarten Brouwer
