    Yeah, got 3x 780Ti now, plus some changes to fans, plus new HDDs, since everything I had when my PSU blew up has died now(Everything has been swapped, including board and CPU). Technically, this is a completely new rig, top-to-bottom.


    :laugh: Yeah, that too. :p

    .....could be in 4k territory but man those monitors are still pricey. Man if I ever become a doomsday prep-err after cheesy puff... a rig like this would be a must have

    Wednesday happy day? true that ... a local shop hosted a giveaway and ... i won
    [​IMG]

    yet my retailer delayed for no reason the delivery of my A10-7700K and the R7-240 i ordered ... damn i expected it today but it will be tomorrow :eek:

    running on a X4 760K + a HD5450 for the moment :D 20fps FFXIVARR and Rift FTW :laugh: (the 760K is already sold at the original full retail price albeit 3month of use, oh well since none of the retailer have it in stock i guess that made the trick ... even if a 750K is cheaper people still run after the highest one)

    i really hate the waiting game, when it happen ... (usualy i get a 1 day delivery :cry: )

    i think my camera hate blue light ... and aluminium ... the green you see isn't green ... anyway : ready to test while i wait for the 2 last shipping i need :)
    the A10-7700K arrived (posing with his A64 sealed older brother and the X4 760K

    Stepping up my fan game
    [​IMG]

    I got a bunch of other san aces installed on a few other computers so they aren't in the picture, but these will likely go on the mk13 vga cooler and the phtc12dx cpu cooler. The big san aces are brushless, not sure if I can run them horizontal

    feedback, while i have some problem setting up hybrid cfx... the A10-7700K alone perform way better than the X4 760K with the R7 240

    mostly due to the IGP being on a R7 250 level and my 2133mhz RAM ... until i sort out the problems i think i will run on the IGP
    [​IMG]

    yep i can game with a APU all settings max on 1080p in RIFT or Tera or FFXIVARR give me 25-30fps and if i play on the settings a bit i can have a decent fps with good eyecandy

    i came a long way since the pc i had when i first posted on TPU

    Yep I had a fairly large collection of San Ace fans a few years ago.

    I wonder if I can run them 100% without going insane
    Just made a couple spacers out of some junk sleeve fans and I'm going to run a single one on the Phanteks for sure, that should probably be nice


    Definitely a long way lol, overclocking forums are like crack

    "budget bound enthusiast" are still tech addict... as i said once if i don't tinker around my comp i can't sleep well ...
    i have to say: i am rather impressed of the A10-7700K perf level it handle every game i play at a decent fps without too big compromise, ofc it doesn't mean i will resell the R9 270X i won and use only the IGP ahah but just like the R7 240 bluffed me in the perf/price ratio the A10-7700K does a pretty good job :D

    That is one SICK freaking rig man. You got my vote. Exceptionally impressive with the carbon fiber and the red/black.

    the more i see the 900 serie from In Win the more i want one ... but i love my SG09B ... hum ... and doing a cheap mITX build would be ...

    oh well ... thanks MSI to bundle free LP bracket unlike powercolor... now the DC7700p is R7 powered :roll:
    and my camera still hate blue tone ... the SATA cable is blue the heatsink of the 240 is still blue ... i figured out if i don't set High Dynamic Range (HDR) on, the color are messed up but if i activate it i can't use the flash o_O

    Hello guys, I just got a new gaming laptop, the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro, and I wanted to share with you how I upgraded it to 16GBs of RAM and repasted the GPU and CPU with a new TIM:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The 1080p model comes with only 12GBs fo RAM, working on a single channel configuration, I decided I could try to squeeze a bit more power from it:

    I found basically all games I've tried so far run at the native resolution out of the box, no need for scaling, the screen is so gorgeous and 1080p has such pixel density on a 15.6" display you hardly need any antialiasing, but you can certainly enable it if you want to; games like Crysis 3, Titanfall, TESO, BF4 and COD: Ghost look amazing on this display:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Getting to the RAM and SSD is a very complex procedure, but par for the curse for an ultrabook class system:

    [​IMG]

    This Kingston RAM module runs flawlessly, at the right timings, voltage and clocks when paired to the 8GB module already present in this system, this is imperative if you want to enable dual channel operation (which unfortunately is not available out of the box due to MSI's puzzling choice of a 8GB+4GB configuration for the RAM)

    [​IMG]

    These are the GPU and CPU dies after cleaning the paste MSI uses, which IMO is very effective, but by using Gelid GC-Extreme I was able to achieve temps that where 4-8 degrees lower compared to the original paste:

    [​IMG]

    Now for the results, before repasting my GPU was reaching 92 degrees and the CPU 91 degrees on extended gaming sessions, after repasting, the max temps I've seen are 86 degrees for the GPU and 89 for the CPU, which I find pretty reasonable considering how thin the enclosure is on this laptop.

    [​IMG]

    The 3DMark 11 scores before going dual channel at default settings were:

    6761

    After going dual channel at default settings:

    6952

    And finally after a bit of OCing for the 870M:

    7366

    [​IMG]

    I apologize for the generic VGA details on the first two results links, for some reason sysinfo didn't work properly for my first 3DMark 11 runs until I updated to the last version before the final run.

    As for 3DMark 13, out of the box:

    4283

    After going dual channel w/ 16GBs of RAM:

    4303

    And finally, after OCing the 870M:

    4607

    [​IMG]

    You can find a link to a mini review and more info in my sig, hope you guys like it!

    Spring-cleaned my PC so perfect time for some pictures of my system. :D

    Phenom II 1090T - passively cooled by Scythe's massive (and awesome) Orochi - together with Gigabyte's GTX 660 Windforce in a BitFenix Outlaw with inverted motherboard tray:

    Repasting a new laptop doesn't it void the warranty?

    beasty Orochi! i love that heatsink ... and the Susano'o ... scythe does some real good and off the charts heatsink (i would'nt count the Katana 4 as off charts but my previous Grand Kama Cross was... :D )

    I think yes and that was a brand new gaming laptop...

    They are f...... ing expensive !

    Dude 15th Warlock that laptop was designed to run as it is. the work you've done is after 2 or 3 years of usage.

    Yes it does, so does adding water cooling to most video cards, only a few manufacturers cover such modifications under warranty, yet that doesn't stop us enthusiast from doing it :)

    You're right, these new GPUs are designed to run at high temperatures 24/7, still the laptop ran at aprox 90 degrees out of the box, I think the enclosure is too thin for such a high performance GPU as the GK104, after repasting temps dropped by 4~8 degrees on both the GPU and CPU, I think it was worth the effort, as I had to access the back of the mother board to add RAM anyways ;) read the mini review found in the link on my sig for more info ;)

    Geez that's one massive heatsink! :eek:
