If only the color scheme of the board matched it. Great looking case/rig.
lol thanks the reason i didn't bother with cable managemnent is because I'll be getting a new case this week
My 2500k rig @ 5GHZ @ 1.38V 24/7 stable
^That's sick man. how's that ASRock Board treating ya?
Quality board imo...this board has all the high end features in a P67 board, for mid range price..
ah well new case better CM I'm sure you'll post up some pics and it to will be sweet
Scratch that, I'll post up some pics now, did some cable management since I couldn't stand it any longer. This is for myself and all you PC perverts!
(Pics taken on the iPhone4)
Start things off with the UD5
My RAM running comfortably at 1.56volts @1600mhz
CPU Area, my H50 cooler which is doing the job for 24/7.
Here is the 750 watt Seasonic PSU, I'm probably pushing it a little but it seems to be handling things fine like a true champ!
And last but not least my personal favourite, the sexy unlocked MSI 6950's and the Auzentech X-Fi Forte
Here's a shot of the motherboard area
And heres the full body shot for cable management
Nice rig man but quick question what type of temps you getting with your 6950's? especially on the top one when gaming???
Around 50's and up with fan at 50% depends on the weather, it's summer here atm so it can reach 65 while @ 60% fan speed as well.. other than that the cards themselves run surprisingly cool. They still get adequate air since they are not completely sandwiched together, on my old X58 UD7 mobo the cards had to be squished together for crossfire now those temps were bad.
(Talking Celcius btw)
Man ur lucky.... I have been plagued with hot running 6950's. At max load I see temps in the Mid 70's with the fan up at 70% and when running Furmark I can get temps (Especially on the top card) in the 90C range.....
I am not the only one either I have looked around the net and there are a bunch of us with this problem. It's not like I have a low air floe case either.
So are those temps while gaming or at idle???/
Lets put it this way I get errors when I go above near or above 80 degrees at these clocks for some reason, most likely due to the VRMs.
Those temps were for gaming, idle is around 37-45 degress depending on the weather so I don't think my ones have the bug fortunately enough.
What case you getting bro? Is it that Phantom one lol I might be getting a new case as well, this Raven iz good but has really shit air intake
now thats impressively neat and tidy
Well that's good... I am glade for you I am not all that worried... because I am not stable plus my cards are XFX brand so I could always RMA in needed. Plus I will be going water cooling or high end air cooling on the cards soon.
But I just thought I would ask since I saw another 6950 guy... thanks for the imput
Ahh that's true I know I would rather buy cooling than put up with an RMA process but yeah that sucks quite bad that some of these cards have heat issues.
I'm still reconsidering things now lol, I'd rather buy local than anything when it comes to a case so I can't use PCCG since they add an extra 50 for shipping it's a bit hard to find a good replacement at the moment although I am keeping an eye on the Fractal Design Define R3. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Fractal_Design/Define_R3/ Not sure if it will support my cards, lol.
Here's a pic of my new 2 HD6950's, not the best quality I know but Camera phone iz all I have hope you guys like...
Already!? NICE! Haha you couldn't wait any longer aye? Enjoy these babies man they run like a dream on crossfire way better than the 5xxx for sure.
Replaced my two 470's with two 580's
the definition of smexyness
Thankyou for shaming my rig
No shame at all
At least you have a nice case (and components)
That is some beautiful system you got there I'm working to something close to that too myself. But simply briliant. Kudo's mate!
Thanx but I might get a new case, the Raven doesn't have good air intake at all since I had to sandwich those cards the top GPU is getting pretty hot, max temps so far have reach 90C so I took the side panel off, the temps dropped down to 77C, but I don't really like having the side panel off just so I can play sum games, thats where the new case comes in, just not sure which one I should go with yet, my eyes are on the CoolerMaster HAF X case for now, but Im going to look around more
Can't go wrong with the cooling in the Haf-x I'm also debating whether I want another heavy case like that lol.
