Can you pls sell me one of your GTX 580's you have too many lol
To be honest with you, I doubt two watercooled cards will give me the same performance as three stock cards, no matter how much I OC them even using WC
You mean like this?
The gauge is really about useless in that range...the PSU tops out at 2.3 or so and the gauge is actually on the wrong side of the flow to get a proper reading. The gauge is only about $15 from McMaster. The real way to get a reading is to have a much smaller tube off a T at the end of the T and position that T so the pump is pounding that little tube like a guy that just got of jail pounds his first piece of freedom tail. Then you'll get a true constant reading of the pump output.
Now that's a thing of beauty!
Bit of internal re-workings in my Antec case.
Hard Drive bay up top with fan on front from 900 Two case holding SSD & 2Tb WD Black.
Gone with External Enclosure for Blu-Ray.
I5-2500K running at a tad under 4Ghz - V10 Cooler.
2 x 3870 X2 Crossfire.
Bit of cable management...............
Nice! I like the black and red theme
I was going to water cool 570's with Koolance blocks I just got but decided to keep this case on air.
Such a good air case - but with just a bit more mod - opions for 360 rad up front, 280 in roof and 240 at rear - potential for a super water case too.
Nice water blocks! So many of you guys with beautiful WC rigs, I think that should be my next step also.
If you decide to sell this blocks let me know
Not likely for sale - these will be my weapon of choice for a while now
Cool where did you get your waterblocks from, and how were them? if it's not to much to ask.
Australian eBay Deal.
Seller had O'Clocked & NON reference 580 cards so and blocks didn't fit
New & never used - 2 of them not even taken out of packaging, she realized problem - but couldn't return the blocks.
They were sold as a lot of three - so "highish" starting price put everyone else off.
I got all three inc postage for under $240 AUD.
Considering some are asking over $150 each (in Australia) not sure about elsewhere what prices are - I think I got bargain of the year anyway.
That was a sweet deal, over here they sell for $129~139 before S&H+Tax!
Please post some pics if you decide to go WC!
Guess I need to find some cathodes and what kind of insane FPS do you get with that beast of a computer?
T_ski I love your setup. very clean!
Dunno, haven't checked the only game that doesn't run smoothly is the Witcher 2 when I enable uber sampling, but other than that, all other games run smoothly
Crappy cell phone upload straight to facebook, but you get the picture
HP ZR30W + Samsung T260HD = exactly 6.4 million pixels being pushed by a single GTX 570
hey i got a new case today,a coolermaster glite 430 black,its a great case,it was cheap too,55$au,
i got my vertex 3 60gb and a new fan as well,haha,im a happy camper ,need to do some cable management but its installed and running great,very cool,much better than what i was using,not sure whether to install win 7 on the ssd,or use it for intel smart cache???heres a pic-
very nice looking setup,how do you find the crossfire works?? with gaming etc,im thinking of buying nother 6850 and doing the same,is it overkill and do you get micro-stuttering as ive heard can happen?ps whats the cpu cooler,looks different to most?
Crossfire will usually run nearly flawlessly except for occasional stuttering but nothing major, also whether or not is is overkill depends on how you define overkill really.
He is using a CoolerMaster V10 cooler btw.
My new Silverstone GD05B case has arrived.
Gonna build a nice little htpc...
