fit just has the urge to play with new hardware
now show us the board would ya!
Processor on Monday... All weekend in the box
changed my mind... heres some pics.
looks good fit, loving the blue
Nice Ballistix sticks. If that board performs anything like the Gigabyte x58 boards, then we should see some pretty awesome results.
And she wore blue... velvet. Bluer than velvet was the night... -sings-
i heard that this setup will blow your mind.
i plan on getting some SICK results for you guys to ooogle at.
it will be with my i5 750 though. not i7
only thing i hate about this board is the fact that the power button is in the worst place.
how am i supposed to turn this thing on?
they obviously didn't think about video cards when they were trying to figure out where to place the power button on the board
LOL. Yeah, that could be more than a little inconvenient.
its really the only flaw. everything else is SICK.
its HEAVY and you can tell its durable as hell.
looks odd without a NB though.
guess you can watercool the VRMs but that may look odd.
Not much need to WC more than one component. I like that idear.
lol... maybe they can squeeze the VRMs into the cpu as well someday. then you just need 1 block.
Solder to the two points on the back of the board and relocate a new button (Custom)
imagine all in the CPU, one block like fit said, that'll be sweet!
You know, I'm trying as hard as possible, but P55 just does not impress me at all. I'd rather just spend the extra money and grab X58.
Not many would argue except the enthusiasts who have had to try it all. I'm glad I am sticking with x58
I just noticed something odd today, after playing game for 2 hours, I saw the NB heatsink temp LED flashing, which mean it reached ~60C.
And it's IDLE around 45-50C, Is this normal?
Ive got my 965 EE arriving next week and some other new stuff, Is it worth buying 1600Mhz DDR3 modules yet? as they are still fairly pricey where im at.
Sorry to barge in on the thread like this, seems like the best place to ask.
Also nice setup fitseries, Those blue crucial modules are looking awesome, never seen crucial modules like that before.
It's worth it rai. Try and find some used on the forums and save yourself some money. I'm sure you can find a 3x1 or 2x6 set fairly cheap here on the forums.
I just had to reply to this one
`haha nice theory
Sometimes noobs don't want to do the dirty work themselves
and leave it up to the dogs 'veterans'...
