I don't like the looks of most of those "full length" GTX970s, awful lot of wasted PCB... =P
For the record, Palit GTX970 vanilla has the same PCB as...
Received a Palit GTX970 vanilla today.
Aaand looks like it's dead on arrival...
Indeed, I spoiled myself 3 years ago when I bought my to-be-obsolete Vertex 60GB and I'm so giddy to get my mitts on the new Sammy. ¦p~ Surely, SSDs...
I went bananas this evening and ordered some junk to toy with:
Core i7 3770K
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH
2×8GB Mushkin Blackline Frostbyte...
I wonder if you could find more of such results? Some with non-synthetic benchies perhaps? Maybe it would be possible to find a couple slides where...
If IB-E actually launches I wonder how Ivy Bridge arch chippery can remain relevant against LGA1150 Haswell and it's Xeon counterparts that will...
Oohh... Lookit that. Something for free.
Seems to me LGA2011 is heading the way of LGA1366.
I have a feeling Intel might just axe IB-E altogether and launch a new HEDT platform based on...
I'm itching to upgrade from my 4GBs of DDR2. Always running out of memory. Mmmm... How about a nice LGA2011 board with 8×8GB... ¦p~

Power consumption is still nothing short of horrible and goes beyond horrible when OC'ed.
Piledriver is a fail in my book.
Now that Skype for W8 is done they can fix the broken Android/Symbian versions.
IIRC it was from an old CRT monitor.
IMO, way too small heatsinks, and thermal tape is so-so.
Grab a hacksaw and carve into some surplus heatsinks and you'll end up with...
What kind of heatsinks did you use for the VRMs?
Temperetures are likely due to conduction from associated regulators.
Those are 12V input inductors, they don't need any cooling. Even the vGPU power inductors marked "R22" don't need to be sinked, light air flow is...
Buy 3+ drives and put them in RAID5. You get speed and safety.
All that is rated 80Plus Gold is not 80Plus Gold.

^You'd be missing so much... Only to indulge a mere primal need. [IMG]
That die shot definitely has 384bits worth of memory bus...
Please no, don't do it...
We don't want to go back to optical drives.
I've been using the bundled dongle the whole time, no problems for me. Been using it 4 years now.
