ill put 670's, watcha got? huh?!
Right, right, my bad.
No idea why I wrote MSI instead of ECS. I think I mistake them every once in a while... :\
I dunno, still waiting for you to send me those 7-series cards now that you're done with them. lulz.
ino, that's why i am not upgrading and since performance ain't that big difference on Sandy vs. Ivy i will keep my i5-2500k aswell, and with my purchase of my KFA2 GTX 680 i am out of money for hw for a long time
and if you need a HD7 series card for testing purposes, PM me. i could part with one for a while.
Makes me think of my good times with my Athlon64 3500+
My new fittings have just arrived for the golden PC build
Here's my new BIOS chip. I finally figured out how to take somewhat decent pictures with this meh camera.
What ya do to that fine piece of cooling hardware? Nice fittings thou
I cant be on here all the time , what they charge ya for it?
Looks great! Heck if I knew you were wanting a bios chip I would have hooked ya up.
$17.96 which is only a few bucks more than what it would have cost to ship the entire board.
Oh man, posting, deleting, posting, deleting. I'm leaving this here.
Wow a tad steep id say. What happeded to your other chip?
ahahahahahahhahah me too
Bad flash. ASUS wants $24 from their eStore so I couldn't pass up $18.
That sucks man! Im glad I have a dual bios board and the option to flash or copy one bios programing to the other chip. Takes about 6 min to flash but it saved my ass a few times already. This Intel shit board has corupted the bios a few different times when overclocking.
I never had that issue using amd
The way it was is that I bought another set of identical RAM so I could have 8GB. Together they couldn't get even CAS 7 at 1600MHz, let alone the CAS 6 they are rated for. So I flashed the BIOS to the latest (at the time). Somehow I lost the ability to overclock the CPU, there was no option to up the mult. So I eventually did the risky method of reverting to an older BIOS. That went fine, but it still didn't allow me to overclock. So I flashed to the latest again. It restarted but didn't come back. If this doesn't allow me to OC and reseating the CPU doesn't fix it, I may just go outside and throw my $240 frisbee.
lol I hear ya... you can always give it back for RMA if it still doesn't fix the problem
What are you waiting for? Pop the lids off those puppies
I still think I would have went with the 3820 instead of IVB. It's a good chip and runs 15*C lower under load at the same clock as the 3770k even after replacing the TIM. What about 130-watt TDP?
I'm sure Dave got those cpu's given to him so he can do his reviews. Really I don't think he cares about whats what, you take whats given to ya.. Now Dave can do his Reviews and not previews
Actually, I paid $640 for them. I've apparantly got another 3770K inbound, but couldn't wait any longer.
The 3820 is a personal chip. The 3770k (my wife went to 6 stores last night to get one!) is for reviews, which I just sat down to get started on. WIll ahve one next week, and every week after that for several months, it looks like. I've got a tonne of boards here, and more incoming!
Currently got the 3820 @ 4.5 GHz, 1.35v, stability testing. While it's running tests, I'll be building up a rig with one of the boards for review, to test this afternoon, probably try another board tomorrow as well, and then another on Monday. Then I'll go hardcore testing on one for the review....can't write a review without gettign a general feel for the platform first.
Bought both so as to be able to make good compares, for myself. I also plan on doing a bit of multi-GPU testing as well, comparing PCIe implementations (multi-GPU PCIe scaling is something i think most are not gonna expect!!! ). Currently working on arranging for the VGAs for that...got lots of stuff in the works!
