Because it's 5% faster, of course. Why take an hour to do an encode, when you can take 57 minutes?
heh, my encoding is limited elsewhere, it doesnt even max out four cores, let alone all 6 with some of the stuff i do. i blame nero, since its what i've been using recently. (MKV to DVD stuff)
I use Ripbot. I thought my 955 might be slow at 3.8 core and 2.8 cpu-nb but it isn't any faster or slower than my i7 920 even though both end up at 100% load. The 955 might be a little faster but definitely not slower. The 920 doesn't seem to care if I run 3.33ghz or 4.1ghz as it weirdly seems to take the same time for both even though it lingers around 100% load all the time.
I don't quite understand it myself but figure around 3hrs for a bluray to mkv encode isn't bad.
i normally use handbrake, but it doesnt convert to DVD, which is what i've been doing mostly these days.
as for the 920, try disabling hyperthreading... HT can actually hurt some encoding apps, not help.
F@ck yes, im picking up the
Maximus II Formula
i still find it sexy as hell after so long lol
+ an E8400, yes its a VIRGIN !! lol
and 4gb dominator 8500s
and i should get my Q9550 from KieX in a few days
The second rig, cbf opening it up since I have to take the side fan off.
Back on air but it's ok
Looks very clean!
Besides that motherboard power connector, the cabling if very nice.
ps. that 4870 looks awesome to.
Got me some new fans
@ The Don, love that board. Soooo wish i could get another. And i agree, it's just beautiful.
i really do like your setup man.
thank you, very kind.
Need to sort out the holes on the side of the desk (left overs from my change between V1 and V2) and i need to get some new mesh, keen eyed will notice why
Thanks! They are great fans I love them, plus they are very quiet.
Thats one sick setup very nice!
I'm still in awe at your Deskmod and it's been what, 2 years now?
Why thank you. I just don't feel like messing with it also very very little room to work with behind the tray.
@ Moonpig damn you evertime i see that desk mod of yours i start drooling that thing is friggin hot
@ POS sorry to hear about the wabbit I don't know what I'd do if my cat up and died on me
@ The Don yeah thats a sexy mofo board we'd like to see pics once it's all setup and goin
c/m = cable management, right?
well, you could give me some tips
Nice setup Jr!!! Why dont you go get a couple of cans of flat black and paint the inside of that sucker!
ON ANOTHER NOTE! that 1156 cooler is SMALL!
@ qu4k3r show us the inside of your case and we'll see what we can do
doh never mind found the pics

You mean this...
The case is kinda small so C/M is going to be tough but not impossible!
found it well first thing I'd do is turn that HDD cage around so that all cables are at the back
Does Handbrake worth well with hyperthreading or do you know of any free ones that work well with it?
Really thinking about chasing down a Phenom X6 over trying to figure out some way to get a hex core i7.
This is what i would do in my opinion.
Take out that bar at the top, I does alittle structural stability but not by much.
I would then take out the hard drive cage all together and try to mount your HDDs in the 5.25 bays that are unused.
The i would try to fit as much unused PSU cables behind the motherboard tray as possible.
This is a good start to your C/M woes
Why not try ConvertX to DVD
I think it's fine for the size of the case brandon. Small cases like that though NEED modular.
Oh also thanx for the compliment, I've never seen your setup. Wanna give us a pic?
IMO, sweet F all works well with hyperthreading. try with and without yourself, and see how it goes.
i went an x6 because i realised HT wasnt going to help me at all.
