Is that Primoflex Pro LRT tubing? Same stuff I got, love it. Lookin' great sneeky!
Fesser UV 3/8" white
@ erocker, looking good man!
How is that power supply doing for ya?
Erockers rig looking sexy as always. Love the fans with the white tubing for some reason.
Nice one erocker!
I'm interested in knowing too since it might be the PSU I would get for my next build.
LOOKING AWESOME. I'm so glad those got used!
So I installed the DX58OG with a Core i7-950 I had lying around from the bench rig.
It doesn't overclock for shit! The BIOS setup program has all the options that should let you fine-tune a 4+ GHz stable OC (including VDroop control, clock skews, etc.,) but it simply does not POST with even the slightest shred of deviation from stock settings.
My Corsair XMS3 kit has an XMP profile for DDR3-1600 MHz. I leave everything else on stock, and simply select this profile from the BIOS. Restart, and the dreaded memory failure beep sound.
The board doesn't post with even 134 MHz BClk! (133 MHz is default)
On the packaging, it reads "Designed by Enthusiasts, For Enthusiasts". Horseshit. It's more like "Designed by 55 year old soon-to-retire Intel engineers, for rich noobs who buy Core i7-990X and run it at stock".
This is pretty much the worst story I've ever heard about using an enthusiast/overclocking motherboard... all stock, ram at XMP = fail, 1mhz bclk increase = fail, board is fail!
Damn, that seems unreal. You think board may be bad or something?
Tried different RAM? Might be some stupid incompatibility issue...
Intel boards are not the greatest of OCers
The manual for the board should say all the RAM kits that it is compatible with. Is it on that list? As stated, could be a incompatibility issue.
try setting the ram manually to 1066mhz Cas 9 1.65V then do your OCing. My ram suck and this is what I had to do or it would not OC at all.
No complaints. With everything OC'd, CrossFire running, etc. the thing barely gets warm. One thing I've realized is that I prefer nylon braided cables as opposed to the flat plastic coated cables. That's just me though. Excellent PSU. I'll get some more pictures up soon.
Thanks for the Heads up. I'm thinking about it.. I really do like my XFX psu, so I might wait til their 1k comes out.. Hmmm
To Erocker re above pic, love the white psu, and the white tubes too, looks great, how well do the acceleros work with keeping it cool? just wondering, , @ pete- big window, looks fantastic. Both riggs have a lot of style without presenting as ostentatious or overkill etc. Thanks for posting, inspiring!!
Ouch !!! that has gotta suck
How about noise? I know "quiet" is a very subjective term, but how does it relate to other PSUs you have used?
One of my first custom PC.
Thats a bunch of small fans. Aren't they noisy?
Cooler buddies! How well does it cool your proc? I'm idling at 30C, and full load at 50C
is that an 8800 Ultra I spy?
Yes they were quite noisy, as the chipset i had bonded with hot glue. You recognize that right, Corsair Dominator GT on RAM.
Even I had similar temperatures, my experiments were the extraction fan Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 120mm was an absurdly noisy
Yes my first expensive graphics card, an old glory
