This is what I am playing with now
nice Brandon, but dont expect to high overclock on that board, dosnt look to good at overclocking, but we'll have to wait and see
MUAHAHHAAHA many 1090T's today
How you liking that CH4 board?
Not looking to OC much. just need a HTPC board that would suit my needs for the parts i already have and the CPU i want
now im going to sale the DFI 790FX board. anybody have any interest?
then i guess you should be fine
will be one sicko HTPC
loving the ROG atm and the board is sexy as hell. Wont start clocking her till tomo though.
ya never know don! it might hit 4ghz with this old DDR2 ram LOL
they are pretty easy to oc and runs very cool afaik, so who knows, you might do it
i googled the board and havnt found anyone to use it with a 6 core yet but hopfully when i can afford one i will do a review
my TIM must not be setting up right then, cuz im getting some abbynormal temps. I've also read that depending on the mobo and bios, people are getting some WHACKY temp readings on Thuban... Just my luck
LN2 calling your name?
I wish. Exodus and I are sitting next to each other at the Noreaster 2010 Lan and discussed doing an LN2 Session. This Thuban seems pretty promising so far 3.8ghz at 1.35V stable.
I Want one
CPU 31.C, MB 30.C, NB 50.C, SB 40.C
So the X6's run cool heh?
i gotta say i hate this thread... Everytime i look at it, i have to get up drive an hour and a half to my nearest microcenter(90 miles) and grab a bunch of goodies and start over.. I just looked at it, now i gotta go for a ride, tis very sad day!!!! On the flip side, i decided to go to microcenter first this time, now i'm going to put all the goodies in, and i'll be back in a bit with pics!!! yay!!
OMG exodus! be sure you pick me up something while your there
So I found out last night that the Noctua D14 fits in the CM 590 case......though, it is very, very tight. With two 120mm fan on top, the normal 120mm exhaust, and two side holes for fans open there sure is a ton of airflow around the the cpu socket. I think it might embarrass my HAF in how much air is moving around in that area.
I've got pics but don't have a card reader on my laptop. I'm stressing the AMD right now so I can't use it and I had to take the Noctua off my i7 which has the card reader so I'm going to have to wait until later this evening to post up pics.
With the D14 on my 790FXT-UD5P you lose the closest two dimms if you have tall heat sinks
Getting to the cpu fan connector on that board with everything installed is a pain
Anyone have any ideas of how to block off the side vents on the 590? The one over the cpu is useless with the Noctua and I think it might be hurting airflow a little.
Wish i had that kind of cash.
Can't wait to see the pics.
proof that you can utilize all cores playing BC2. Sure it may not necessarily be optimized for it, but logging using Task manager showed that all 6 cores were in use in-game...
(plus: six graphs is sexier than 4 lol)
Holy crap Asus finally came out with an AMD board that looks very attractive?! Intel usually gets all the sick looking motherboards.
The DFI board still works good! it maybe forsale
Six is nice, but I've had the pleasure of seeing a Task Manager with 16 graphs! (system my dad uses at IBM with 4 quad-core Xeons)
Get a screen of that for us!
And have him run a few benches
