    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)

    :D
    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 :laugh:

    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

    :rockout:

    + 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:toast:

    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.

    Looks good :toast:

    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 :laugh:

    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.

    That looks nice, but one question: Why don't you have heatspreaders on your ram?
