idk, im not into all that, thought it was just 1 type haha
hells yeah. i wanted to keep the stock backplate, so i used zip ties to hold it on as well (for protection of the back of the card, as opposed to cooling)
There is acrylic base and enamel base. Most likely any paint on your case would be enamel if that is the case you cannot paint acrylic over the top. It would need to go back to bare metal. But if your mate is a panel beater spray painter hopefully he uses 2 pack which is enamel.
That cooler brings me back to the HD 4850 days , still one of the best I've used, how much better is it compared to the stock reference cooler Muss?
dunno, i assume lots
main advantage was noise, while the reference cooler didnt have much in the way of wind noise, it DID have an annoying rattle at anything but the slowest speed.
Is this necessary Mussels because in your system specs its written that you keep the card at stock clocks? Anyway i like it
My HIS 5870 only goes up to 900 core ... but its perfect I guess since its the most stable clocks my 5970 can get to without the VRMs reaching 120 degrees
ever tried putting a fan on the VRM sink maybe a little 50/60mm one it's surprising just much cooler they run with even a piffling little bit of air moving over te sink
noise. rather, lack of.
i'm getting tempted to BIOS mod it now with higher volts + CCC limits, there any easy walkthroughs?
things i need to know:
what tools we use for 5k cards
how to rip my BIOS off my card for backup purposes (GPU-Z doesnt work?)
edit: figured most of it out, only advanced questions left... will look for a thread on it
Ordered some new bits, got a TX650 on its way and a CM Storm Sniper, should have pictures for you all mid next week! Dont think ive posted in here since I had my Jr, not sure but ill deffinitely get this set up posted
My PC atm:
Got this case for 40€ and I'm very happy with it. I like that you can install many fans and that it's all black.
I will upgrade the cpu cooler in the near future, maybe a cm hyper 212+ or something.
I have 2 more gb of Crucial BT ram on the way, will post pictures soon.
ooo a little stock AMD heatpipe cooler Hows the temps with that
Looks good man. I'm thinking of getting a couple more of those B&W NZXT fans (like the one on the back) to stick in the top two spots in my Gamma. They're really quiet, move a lot of air, and cheap.
Itll all be going into a Haf932 soon as im buying my buddies off him
Got my new Mobo yesterday. I worked a long day only to come home and install stuff in my PC, so please forgive the poor cable management.
looking good and hey, you still have better cable manegement than 90% of the others in here
Your case looks good bro! You should join the NZXT Case Clubhouse and post pics of your sweet rig!
around 40°C at idle and max 60°C with prime95
yeah, I like the b&w color scheme too.
ok, will do
dude bro, your rig is getting better and better When are you going to paint the chassis black? You know you want to
I'm not going to, I have other plans for it. Just in the process of locating the stuff for it.
what do you have in mind then ?
btw, how do you guys make those spoiler things?
["spoiler"] Your text here. ["/spoiler"] Except without the quotations.
I'm thinking some carbon fiber tape for my case would look better on the inside than some plan old black paint that will chip.
sounds interesting, i think mnpctech has some pretty good stuff afaik
thx for the spoiler thing
have to show u guys my getto mod for my p4 heat sink bracket thats held on by bolts because i killed the clips for it
