An impressive change was also the noise. Much more silent since I had 6 15KRPM HDDs. lol
Not unless it's a reference card, lol.
I don't think the noise will change for me because i'm already running an SSD, and my HDDs are barley audible anyway. Just thought it was time to upgrade my old Kingston V+100 128gb to a 840 pro, you know, take advantage of the unused SATA 3 on my mobo
If you have a decent price on it, the WCG guys would be interested in it for sure.
nice, looks like u prepared for combat
my case arrived with UPS from Germany like an hour ago ^^
my cat was over to look to see if she could find something
so i am gonna install my system in my new case can't wait
She wants in the box
Curious kitty is curious
Corsair ftw. Enough said.
New fans for my H100i, somehow it fails to control the Skythe S-Flex so they are always running at full speed. So I bought these for push and placing the stock H100i fans as pull.
Wondering which color should I use...
Planning to get an AF120 Performance for exhaust too.
did a little "ghetto mod" today so i could have my WD Green 500gb drive in my HAF XB case aswell...
there ain't anything double sized tape can't do to help
here is how it looks inside the case ^^;
SSD on top:
Why are the micro-SD to SD adapters still there?
ATX to microSDHC to 3.5" SATA adaptors. patent pending.
Just got another pair of RAM
Now, my RAM upgrade is complete!
Or you could have just used the hot-swap bays in the HAF XB
they r both filled with two WD Green 2TB drives
i had a hankerin for some sexy closeups, so i grabbed the most powerful video card i could find and snapped some sexy shots of the dust clogging its cooler.
ooo look at all the sexy fuzz
got it second hand at a market, going to use it to power my HTPC when i move house and actually end up using it again.
this should be added as; sexy and tight close up to your hdd bay pics
my video card is totally sexier than those
I was just trying to show the size of the thing with comparison to a gts450. the bcp is bigger than my mobo lol
second 7950 card back from RMA, got a new PCB...:
Looks to be the same PCB but with solder masking over certain areas(I'm assuming the bottom card is the new one)
As far as I can tell, they have the same layout and components, jsut one has solder covered pads and the other has masking over those pads.
The evolution of vidoecard size, a 5750, 6770, and 7850, all 3 different manufacturers:shadedshu
Yep, and PCB is physically thicker a bit, VRM doesn't have any coil whine, even @ 1.3 V, and some surface-mounted bit are slightly revised.
slightly better ASIC quality compared to my other card(which does 1300 MHz pretty easily), and slightly lower clocking ability.
At least it's stable.
Also decided to use a second Crossfire bridge, and that seems to fix some of the flicker I was getting in 3DMark...or it was the fresh driver install I did. Either way, quite happy now, since I can now get the review done on my last Z77 board, the ASRock Z77 Extreme11!!!!
I saw somw flicker before with a poorly seated crossfire bridge. Maybe that was it, and the second one helped...
