Gotta rep the best place on the web!
Looks almost like a stinger coaster ^^
Wait...it is a Stinger608 coaster!
Here is a pic of my current cruncher build.
Give me a coupon code!!!!!
Here is my GTX 680:
Now waiting for aftermarket cooler.
A quick and low-quality cellphone pic illustrating one of the reasons why you shouldn't let your very young daughters (or any other very young female relatives) near your pc.
Mine just discovered she could embellish the front fan grille with some cheap costume jewellery
Then they'd look at you with cute-puppy-eyes saying "doesn't it look really prettier now mom?"
I didn't have the heart to take them off...
Very nice there bro, you got it overclocked at all?
Well, at least they didn't paint unicorns on it.
Not yet ill OC it once i get my cooler.
I received my new NZXT Tempest 410 ELITE side panel today!! THANK YOU XNine!
You guys are going to hate me, but the computer I'm working on is... analog. It does physical stuff too. It pushes a thread through material and drags another thread back, and creates what is called a "lock stitch".
So a sowing machine? Did you get it from your mom? What kind of overclock can you get out of that thing???
this is my current case
and that is my raptor
Indeed it's a sewing machine, it runs at 0.00006 Mhz (60Hz) I don't really sew, but have a couple I've purchased on Craigslist, mostly for the cabinets (which are quite nice). I figured I'd give this one a restoration. They certainly don't make things like they used to. I also have 1917, 1930 and 1931 machines, and they all work! ... and they close up in cabinets from maple to mohogany, where you can't even tell there's a machine inside. Nicest furniture I own.
The inner workings of these machines fascinate me, as does the history and the whole industrial revolution in general. Another hobby to satisify my urge to tinker.
Accelero Twin Turbo II installed on my GTX 680.
I had trouble installing it a bit good thing I had my spare Xtreme Plus II with 3mm spacers those are the only ones that fit for the GTX 680 keep in mind.
fitting is why Arctic don't recommend that cooler for your card the one they say is this cooler
anywho what sort of temps are you getting with what you've gone with
I have the official 7970 Arctic cooler on my Sapphire 7970. it runs at 27 celsius idle, and never goes past 55 celsius on load overclocked to 1125/1575
My new battle station. 7680x1440 goodness. Now I need like 3 680 GTX's to play BF3 with surround vision.
That cooler wont fit with the reference GTX 680 I ask Arctic Cooling:
My temps are 26c idle and 51c on load.
Plus it quiet.
Ant that still may not be safe. My 7970 for instance had about 5 extra heatsinks that needed to be placed around, not including the many heatsinks on the memory itself. The 680 is probably similar, you probably need some heatsinks on some sensitive areas other then just the main ones used on older cards. So your readings are good, but the parts not being read by the temperature sensor may be overheating since you would technically not have the proper heatsinks other then the ones for the memory.
Now somethin like that you'd think would be out there in BOLD lettering Ant for all to see
although you seem to gettin really good temps so probably not a problem
@ Phusius we like a little fringe here too
Nice. Did the kit come with the RAM and VRM heatsinks? Thermal tape, I assume?
...Looks well done.
