    I wish. Exodus and I are sitting next to each other at the Noreaster 2010 Lan and discussed doing an LN2 Session. :D This Thuban seems pretty promising so far 3.8ghz at 1.35V stable.

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!!

    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.

    Some highlights:
    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
    Filters rule! :rockout: :laugh:

    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.

    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)

    Six is nice, but I've had the pleasure of seeing a Task Manager with 16 graphs! :eek: (system my dad uses at IBM with 4 quad-core Xeons)

    SS I might be able to get, benchies, no way, it's in use for something 24/7. Sorry, I would like to see the results as well (I think it has 4 3ghz Yorkfield-based Xeons (so effectively 3 Q9650s :eek:)) :ohwell::(

    I kind of figured that would happen. I logged using Everest while playing online for several hours with and without hyperthreading at the same clocks on my i7 rig. Running at 3.33Ghz core and uncore I saw loads constantly above 50% without hyperthreading. With hyperthreading, it never got more than 40% and usually hovered in the 30s. Did this on more than one occasion and the results were pretty consistent.

    Any idea what it's used for? I'd be happy just seeing it's performance for whatever it does. Maybe screen of a performance log? In any case, the task manager graph would be appreciated, so good luck on your new mission :cool:

    I have no idea, at one point it was used as a database server (this was some time last year the last I heard of it)...I'm not sure if he even still has it (it was on loan from Intel), but I'll ask him tomorrow if he still has it and if I can get a SS or any performance figures :cool:

    I wish I could get a loan like that from Intel!

    Yeah, seriously, according to my WCG PPD Estimator it would do something like ~10k PPD :cool:
    And would be so much fun in general, but apparently it was like 600w and loud as hell. But still awesome :roll::roll:

    I don't care how loud it is, you won't be able to hear over the sound of how awesome it is.
