Overkill is NEVER an option
I wish I would have taken pics of all the boxes when I first built my PC
Wooaahhh . . . Bluueee, sooo bluuueee! (bit of an inside joke amongst my friends and I)
Really? That looks like you're doing blend or something other than small FFTs and, for me, OCCT's linpack generates ~10c more heat than Prime95, unless you do small FFTs, but even then OCCT is a few degrees warmer. Also in my testing, OCCT catches instability a bit quicker than Prime95.
Me neither. If I did, it wouldn't be a problem
Don't get the 1090T. Not worth the price. Get the 1055T.
EDIT: Premature response. Missed a whole page. I see that youy already have it now. I would've gone 1055T and used the money saved to upgrade elsewhere.
thank you i officially use under 200 watts of it but its nice in case i want to u know 5970 crossfire on liquid or something down the road
also on a serious side not i always buy huge psu's because i change my rigs a ton so if i keep like 1000w+ pus's around they will always power any rig i put them in like that tt 1200w its been in 3 pcs one had 4 4890s so thats why i have the huge psu's
+ a PSU is usually something that you're gonna keep for a very long time if you're smart imo
so you might as well get some good stuff to begin with instead of upgrading it all the time
very much agree i have a old galaxy 1000w around still weighs as much as a brick still going strong i think it was like 500$+ when i picked it up and i still have it and its going strong to this day 24/7 use
500 Watt Antec Neo HE that is almost 4 Years Old now. Still working hard.
Dammit I love the silence in my case without a GFX card in, but onboard plays GRID like crap
Are you using custom settings? For me LinX creates more heat. Though, there is a bug in it and depending on certain voltages you will get low heat output but your GFlop output will be lower given different amounts of memory used. You just have to change the amount of memory used to resolve this.
little Hiper typeR 580 for me been going strong for a couple of years now before that i had an Raidmax modular 520 for about 5 years it' still going with some new caps installed in my mates PC
sorry for the camera quility on some shots
my new PC ATM
So how nice is that corsair cooler? Seems really popular and I'm wondering if it would be a worthy replacement for my modded coolit eliminator or if it would just be about the same.
speaking of tempreatures its not bad, around 25c idle for me on stock cpu. havent really checked any overclocking on the rig yet. the only problem id say is putting the pump thing onto the cpu its abit flimsy the way its connected to the socket
i dont think there will be any need to upgrade to it the coolit would prob have the same temps
also would it be better if i flip the rad upside down?
Oh, I never noticed that's where the pump was, I guess I just never thought about it
I have no idea about flipping the rad; I pretty much don't know crap about loops.
Difference would be minimal, and if I'd be nitpicking about it, the current setup would be best as the heat rises into the rad instead of being directly pumped back out.
But that would probably not even be a degree difference there, especially over time when the loops temperature levels out.
just a bit of testing before one goes in the "Hers" rig.....
I can't see the picture because of how aswesome it looks!
Or, it could be because of a work filter
Ether way, I know it looks sex!
Thats awesome man. I know those a great fans but I really wish they would change the color.
jesus, that is just beautiful peet!
alot cleaner looking
That looks nice, but one question: Why don't you have heatspreaders on your ram?
DDR3's dont get as hot as ddr2 afaik,
this ^^ also i am not running crazy voltage into them(running 1.61v)
