    Thanks, I'm doing great with the i5-3570. In fact I got it locked in turbo mode on all 4 cores which is 3.8 Ghz. :toast:

    Yep you might be able to get it higher too IDK. Base clock can sometimes go up to 105. Be careful beyond 103. 105 is reasonably safe. 3.8ghz is fast as anyone needs tbqh, unless your a serious video editor. Other tricks you can do is try to undervolt it by negative offset if your board gives you control. See if you can get 3.8ghz and 1.0v stable :).

    I'm happy with the way it is and I don't care for OCing. I did fine with my i3-2105 as I don't have heavy demands on my system but I wanted a taste of quad cores before the world ends. :p

    I saw the advantage of it and it solved one problem I had playing my games. My PC's doing house keeping in the background while I do things and it gets interrupted by freezing or causing pauses. The quad cores took care of it.

    EDIT: by the way DAK77 that looks wicked. A prebuilt system? What's in it?

    No, not prebuilt, put it together myself, and then some dremel work for fun :)

    in order to gain x16 x16 for the GPU's they need to be in slots 1 and 3 otherwise it's x16 x8 so I'll see what I can do with the flexi PCIe cable I have and a x1 USB3 card

    as for the VIA audio yeah your right for onboard sound it was in the top leagues but compared the the XFI it sounds like crap and the drivers for win7 x64 are a bit flaky

    Replaced the stock fan on my Cm 212 Evo with a Cougar CF-V12H. This is a fixed 1200 rpm. I can barely hear it run. Keeps my 4770k at 70c under load (Folding@home).

    its basically the same codec but not the same chip still the VIA VT 2020 has the same specs as the one in the X FI Xtreme Audio (i hope you don't have that one, otherwise it mean you have the same audio as the integrated one and paid extra for it :D) oh well its more close of the E-MU 20K1/2 than a SB live ! or audigy like the X FI Xtreme Audio

    X-Fi line-up[edit]

    X-Fi MB[edit]
    X-Fi MB is a software solution that enables basic X-Fi features on computers with integrated audio into an X-Fi device. It requires some degree of driver support from the audio hardware manufacturer. X-Fi MB is commonly bundled with motherboards and computer systems, and is comparable to an X-Fi XtremeAudio. Bundled with some Asus and ASRock motherboards, the X-Fi MB is sold as X-Fi Supreme FX and is actually a standard Analog Devices integrated HD audio codec paired with X-Fi MB. The X-Fi features are implemented entirely in the software. Other hardware vendors sell the X-Fi MB solution simply as Sound Blaster X-Fi Integrated Sound.
    X-Fi Xtreme Audio[edit]
    The entry-level model of the X-Fi series, the Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio, does not actually have the EMU20K1 chip but is a re-branded Audigy SE, using the same family of chips (CA0106-WBTLF), and even the same drivers.[11] Thus, not only is all of the X-Fi–related processing performed in software, but it also lacks basic hardware acceleration just like the SB Live! 24-bit, the Audigy SE and other budget Soundblaster models. The X-Fi Xtreme Audio does not use the same drivers as the rest of the X-Fi family (and lacks ASIO), some games do not recognize it as being "X-Fi capable hardware", and the device's hardware profile resembles that of older Live! and Audigy cards.

    I like the fact that my old mod was ripped to bits and looks like the case got thrown out a window! :rockout:

    Just you try and sag now...


    I'd make a joke about you all having so many computers but I have 4 in the room with me including the cheapo ancient dell latitude I tune my car with:(
    d1nky: How do you manage the dust with that rug and the open cases?
    MrWiz: did you get that 4770k with the $200 special price? Also, I run cougars on most of my computers. Those orange and black fans have about the ideal sound pressure level to air pressure level.

    I like running the Koolance 38mm thick fans with a fan controller in the main rig though.

    Sure, bad angles thou - have a hard time getting a better one since the desk is on small side :(
    Have also re-installed the third HDD-cage since i wanted to have another two drives in, hence the 120mm fan on the right that wasnt there on the first pic.
    There is also some frosting added to the window (have to redo that, do look like crap, and i as writing this noted that the "work-light" withe led strip not only was left on, but also have fallen slighty of its cable-hook on the far right of the window :( ).

    Actually they are 18 AWG speaker wire, double half hitch knot with a zip tie around the end. Holds the card very level, otherwise it sags horrendously.

    Posted this in the memory subforum but fast replies here:

    My 2x8 HyperX Black Memory performs better in slots 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2. Tested this many times in benchmarks to confirm. Its a few % better consistently. Should I keep using 3 and 4 even though manual says 1 and 2? Gigabyte calls the two matched channels 1 + 2 and 3 + 4. Its not like I put the ram side by side like a noob, its staggered ...
