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
I got it for $669 on a great deal! They had 2 left in stock and arrived out the shop before they openened to get it! Normal price is around $850-900
It's got an i5 2450m, 8GB of DDR3 and a GT 640m. It's actually peforms really well. I can play Bf3 at low 50-60fps and medium 30-40fps at the native res and this is in 64 man servers on caspian.
Here it is: Aspire V3
Aspire V3-571G-52454G75Makk ( NX.RZJSA.004 )
849 AUD (This is not my lappies exact model)
Mine has the upgraded 2GB GT 640M instead of the 1GB GT 630M and 8GB of DDR3.
That's the 640m.
Finally got around to doing some CM....
I'd personally have the GPU power cable routed through the bottom with the PSU cables but that's just my personal preference.
In the second picture it looks like he's done that.
The first picture was probably taken after he first installed the card or something .
Not to sound cocky or anything but... No it isn't, it's still to the side.
In the first pic he has it going through the HDD cage, the second image show's it being down the outside of the HDD cage.
Alas sir your are mistaken.
I've highlighted only cables that could be GPU power cables, they go into the first cable management slot. ( fairly certain it's the pink highlighted cables)
The cable going around the HDD cages is a power cable bundle or IDE or something.
Oppsie, we're on about differen't cables, here's what I ment in green.
That's the cables I highlighted in pink , it goes in the bottom management hole, then it comes out of the next management hole.
I'm fairly certain anyway
Not that it matters anyway, just a friendly who has the best eyes contest
If you compare his first picture to his last you can see the pink and red highlighted cables have been routed as well as taped/joined together.
And the pink highlighted cables are the GPU power cables so they must be routed in the way I described unless there's some magic going on! lol
