Anyone got a leafblower I can borrow?
Holy mess of hell...lol
You might need two. One for the mess and another for airflow!
overkill ... in heat...
I ain't posted here for awhile... New desk in the making:
Woo! Just the person I wanna talk to right now
Did you make the desk top yourself? Cause I'm going to make a new desk for my new house
Your desk mods are always teh rocks
Which CPU you got in that beast?
And I thought I had problems!! :lol:
It's a 2m MDF board. Cost me about £18. Need to buy another half sheet for the shelves at the side (Onkyo Receiver, PS3, Wii etc.).
I build a frame around the wall so that there's no legs, floating desk
Hey Moonpig - How would you support the front of the desk if there's not legs?
Well... I kinda lied. There is the side of the shelves that will support it. Other than that, it's a frame.
Lots of room for smoking equipment too I see
Hey dude clean me
Gotta be done.
I'll be in your neck of the woods next month for afew days
I notice the bong in the corner has been used more than a little
There's a 3960X in there.
Yeah, those damn cables are huge, and annoying. Can barely fit the side of the case on.
Yeah, 85C idle temps on two cards, because they sit at 3D clocks. In turn, they throttle under load. Popped them in a few rigs with the same problem.
Now I gotta figure out which board will give me x16/x16/x8(I got a few I think), and then figure out the heat issues. Two cards are fine, so perhaps if I watercool just one, it'll be good to go. I got some other fish to fry before I can really play with it though. Still need a fourth card too, for the boards that have 4 slots.
I actually planned to have three reference cards stuffed into my red/black AMD FX rig, and those cards sit in that rig now, and I'm using 5850's with the 3960X right now.
I've actually just recently re-benched most of the motherboards in that pic. Let me tell you, what a chore.
You need a RIVE
If you send some of those mobo's to me I can help you out on those chores
Yeah, a matching board would be nice, but really, because the 3960X is not what I consider my own, I won't actually be using X79 for the 6950's. I got the red/black thing tight already.
I have this for that instead(OF course, 3rd reference card will go in there, and the XFX non-refernce will be used for reviews unless i manage to get some 7950's.):
ASUS Crosshair V Formula, of course, but it has USB issues, and I need to RMA it. At least I got enough of the rig that I can start planning the case I'm going to build for it in the summer.
I have my 4 kids to help me with that.. You'll have to speak to them.
Your case is missing some parts there buddy
I guess i cannot say much either as my case is just a motherboard tray sitting in a cabinet,lol
Yours is stil lmroe complete than mine, it looks like.
Oh yeah. my case is comprised of a sentey motherboard tray that I seperated from the case...so yeah a bit incomplete
lulz, I jsut hacked an old Gigabyte 3D Aurora form like 2003 to get my tray. I hate the dual 120mm fan holes on the back, completely useless.
I've ordered a proper tray to build the case off of, should be here next week some time, lexan and stuff I have to pick up yet, but I need to wait for warmer weather and my shoulder surgeries to be done before I can get it all together. Painting and gluing in -5c with one arm sucks.
I don't actually expect to be done the FX rig until like October or something. I got two other builds in progress too.
