Beautiful lap job you got there!
that's a good lap job nice mirror finish no all you need to do is lap the HS the same way aswell (or get it gold plated)
Great job you've done there! Are you lapping the cooler too?
awesome job! and sweet Metroid poster you got
cool, you made it
i hope you didnt sand it too much
after that, lapping your heatsink too, use good thermal paste and lets see how it works
Cooler Master CM590? Nice rig, just clean up the bottom cables a bit more!
cool I didn't know you could use HD5770's in WCG last time I tried it said no way because the GPU's lacked double precision math processing looks like I maight have to give it another go then
I don't use them in WCG just for games
FYI- Brandon, be careful with the cooler on the ASUS card, that fan cut me pretty decently once.
LOL I had it running kombuster and its not that loud but did get up to almost 90 degrees.
Yeah, and that's with MX-2. As well RAM sinks on the back mem chips. I used the other ram sinks on the VRMs to keep them cool. As they won't work with the stock cooler on the other mem chips.
That cooler works okay. Enough to get the job done anyways.
It really depends on the scratches you're trying to remove. if you have a huge, deep scratch you'll lose an arm trying to sand it out. I've started with 80 grit on heatsinks before because they were so bad to start with.
ah OK I just assumed that you were showing em off crunching with WCG in the screenie
Well, here's my man cave as of about 5 minutes ago, playing metro 2033. Terrible game. I am uninstalling it promptly.
I am buying more lava lamps, another plasma ball and some neon signs, as well as disco/christmas lights. gotta have the right atmosphere for your mancave...
D: Metro 2033 is an amazing game!
don't forget the gold chains and the hairy chest showing through the half buttoned up shirt
You can use them with Wcg now. I have one xfx 5770 in one of my crunchers and it got 12 betas yesterday and tore through them like nothing, 0.03 per result.
just so you know an anti static bag protects its innards from harm by allowing the electricity to ride along the outside of the bag......puting your mobo on it is no different than putting it on tin-foil
I3-530 @ 4Ghz with XFX 8800 Ultra!
New lappy after 6 months of owning my other one. I gave it to my mother since I'm amazingly nice.
My rig is still incomplete. Waiting for Corsair H100 and another GTX670 for SLI.
Very simple yet effective VGA cooler.
DIY dust filter from mosquito net.
Mesh side panel is good for ventilation, plus you don't have to worry about anyone seeing how messy it is inside
That is a nice lappy! Might I ask how much it set you back? I'm in the market for a lappy soon, trying to get some base info
