will do, gonna do some testing tonight
The all black PCB looks soooo good
Just got my new case and motherboard last night, still waiting on my final hdd to be delivered today, so it's a mess right now. Still got all the plastic 'condoms' on the case , wiring is all spaghetti .... it ain't purty! My old bones aren't up for taking off the sides so you can get the full impact, it's worse than it may look in these pics!
I did a round of 3DMark just to feel if it worked, and the room above the card is certainly alot cooler. Which is good, cause the fan draws air from above the card here.
Not gonna get around to do some full blown modding this week I think, busy moving house.
They still make Xasers
This one looks alot better than the older models though
Not really a fan, TBH, but was the best deal on one which I can eventually (maaaaybe) put a Classified 4-way, or something similar, into. Thing's heavy, and nothing to grab onto to move it, all kinds of weird plastic protrusions. Weird... and my last case was a Stacker. Might end up moving back to it. But I do enjoy having a mobo tray again!
just threw the mobo in there, no need for wm or anything, will be getting a new psu soon so i dont mind it being a bit messy
btw, this cooler is prob one of the few coolers i regret getting, its sooooooo HUGE and could barely be in there
notice the fancy coffee mug
Let me know if you move onto something new, I've always wanted an IFX-14
Looks nice man ( excluding as you pointed out the cables)
Guys please help me out here http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=117153
Getting real anoyying due to its random nature : [
New fans today!
With my system on...
My temps are about the same, but my system is alot quieter, thanks to replacing some junker fans.
Well IMHO, i sure hope i wont be those dads that have my sons pic as wallpaper. But on the case
Actually if my son was a dragon or epic snake i might
I actually thought that was cool, its even more custom then what I do with my cases!
here is my rig.. still needs some work but i just wanted it done
Looks good bro, it's finally running.
Where did you end up mounting the HDD?
do see the single screw, and the lonely sata cable on the top?
When I saw his other pics in his Project Log I noticed. Yeah, that way it's outta the way a bit, great job though. I give it to him
think its in the top
i might trade my SLI LE for a RIIE board next week
its gonna take some hours to sort out his cable mess hahaXD
Why you trading bro? Don't like the board?
yeah i do like it, but like they say in The Godfather, Im gonna give you an offer you cant refuse
he wanted to trade it for my SLI LE with no extra charge, then im in, he just want it because of its looks
and btw, the SLI LE has a weird PCI-E layout
1. is 16x
2. is 8x
3. is 4x.
4. is 4x i think?EDIT: its 8x, but i cant use it to much since the psu is blocking for dual slot cards
would be nice to have a board that did full speed on the first 2 slots and not that weird config
but overall its a nice board
A good deal is a good deal I would go for it, good luck.
Get a Rampage II Gene or Extreme and be done with it.
thats what i'm thinking, + i can sell it for like 300$, then i can fetch a H50 + a cube case and still have money left
well i already have a m-atx 1366 board laying on my desk, and i'm kinda hooked on getting a new cube case, so i think i'll keep the X58M from MSI, it even oc's better than the sli le
ASUS > MSI (pure speculation mind you)
in SOME cases that is true depends on the board and the use both make good boards.
also how are your temps on the i7 and what pump and rad do you use?
well i was VERY surprised by this little MSI board, i could get 4.1ghz stable on it.
mind you that its missing the vreg heatsink(you have to buy one your self)
My temps are kinda odd. even on stock it idles from 36-40 but load doesnt go over 63? i suspect that it could be the fans im using or i need to change from 3/8 to 1/2 tubing and maybe a faster pump? also i was thinking of going tri rad?
what pump do you have? my temps like to hover around 50c load.
