sdfl;jkhfl;gkhl I hate you Awesome card man, enjoy! My dads got two Visiontek 4870X2's.
Johny5, love the setup man. What kind of temps are you getting?
Much MUCH better. 1066mhz is now stable, used to be a little flaky.
cdawall... downsize that picture. Your picture is literally lagging my browser, lol.
Thanks mlee. My temps with the new board sit around 30-32C idle and about 45C 100% full load. This is at 3.5GHz, 1.45v.
johnny, thats a beautiful setup man
CDAWALL, nice little setup
JR, good to know it is now stable at 1066
Thanks ckn. I gotta wait for my 6 pin to 8 pin PCIE adapter to come in before I can power up the 4870x2.
thats a bummer, but hey thats the least of worries bro. you got the card already
It will be interesting to see what kind of volts u ll get with the 4870x2 installed.
I have the same PSU too so i d really like a screenie with volts from everest and OCCT if possible!!
thanks for the response guys,but i'm scared it won't work haha i'm scared my comp would explode or something and i had to 0.1V on my cpu to get it stable.
thats what my BIOS settings look like to keep my 2.8ghz stable.
******** System Voltage NOT Optimized ******** <<---IGNORE This.
System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V] <-- default is 1.8V, 1.8 + 0.3V = 2.1V set this to add up to your ram's voltage requirement.
PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.35V]
she was beautiful once over
are the mossfets the black cube things on the board? i want to cool them with the zalman heatsinks on my board. anyone tell me where they would be?
Your mofset's are the black chips laying flat on the board. Check the pic of the Asus P5Q, it has a heatsink with a heatpipe over the chips laying next to the i/o shield. The pics small but I've squared off the area you need to place the heatsinks.
ahh thanks, ill throw something on those soon
I always thought it was the big black cubes that were the mosfets - learn something new evey day
they must be the phases of power then. i got a shitty 4-phase power
Those black cubes, usually labeled with a few letters and numbers in white, are chokes, and each one represents a phase of power.
e.g. P5Q3 Deluxe with 16 phase CPU, 3 phase memory, and 3 phase northbridge:
(if you can't find them, they are labeled 1R0)

Ok, so I reinstalled PS...
Yes, the lighting is "weak" but I like it subtle. Gotta be able to sleep in the same room
Let me see you stripped
Thrackan that is one hell of a rig man!
but i dont think the lighting is weak at all!
Well the picture colors make it stand out a bit more than real life. Still trying to find the right settings for photographing it.
Lighting is basically 1 UV CCFL and the blue LED fan you see.
But yeah... I like mine too
Also note that in that P5Q,only the mosfets in left of the cpu are colled!Directly north of the cpu there are mosfets too but are not cooled.But if u look closer u will see that there was cooling planned because there are 2 small holes that were intended for the heatsink missing,probably for lowering the cost...So these little flat black square pieces are the MOSFETS!
meh, my silverstones 18cm top fan blows directly over them and into my cpu, so im covered
are those binge's enzotech heat spreaders on the RAM?
