    is that a Z77 board i spot ? what happened to good ol' SB-E :)

    also how is the quality of the audio of the Supreme FX IV vs the SoundCore 3D on the X79 ?

    I REALLY REALLY love the placement of the post LED on that board

    You should do it.....How ever if you look at the CPU scores right now they are fairly close to each other. But really the CPU scores are not what I wanted to compare. considering your using a i7 3930K and I am using a i7 3770K.....I fully expect your P score to increase with overclocking your CPU. However I am comparing the GPU score.
    Normally my GPU is 60K with all 3 @ stock. This run was a little short for some reason. And 27K on 3d mark 11 again a little short for some reason .... could be because I was gaming for 3 hours right before running these.

    Anyway.....

    Overclock your CPU and rerun the benchmarks..... we can compare the GPU score again. I still got more room on my CPU as well :)

    So here.... try these settings and see what scores you get.... then I'll run the same tonight and compare.....
    1. Stock video card run with CPU overclock to 4.5 ghz.
    2. Run with overclocked CPU to 4.5 Ghz and Video cards to max overclock
    3. Run with overclock to 1100/core (I will match core clocks) We can then test Shader power vs Cuda power.

    Again just trying to give an overall high level comparison between these cards.

    they're 3/8ths, but I'm not sure if they can be changed or not.

    If you got those corsair fans with the red rings on them your system will look almost like the demo one they use to show the fans off :laugh:

    Finished it, although I think I now want a mITX build now. Will likely look to move this one and replace it with a Bitfenix Prodigy + Asrock Z77 ITX build.

    The expanded side panels on the 500R made it super easy to close it over the extra wires (even with the sleeved extensions), Ill give Corsair credit for that.

    You'll have to wait for the review. Audio is decent, but I have not checked test results.

    No changing, unfortunately.

    I might be to check in a few days. Down to one arm again, had surgery again this morning far a torn ligament in my shoulder.

    Corsair fans will be added in the near future.

    :roll:


    Wrong arm, but yeah, you'd think, eh?:laugh:


    I've had a lot of down-time these past few months will all of this, and thankfully I've had lots of reviews to keep me busy and active. Few more 1155 boards to go live yet, then time for some memory, I think! Just working on clocking these TridentX sticks now!;)


    My wife has helped me a lot with reviews the past few months, and she's pretty tolerant of all the hardware lasying around at least. She gotta puy it all together, including the rig pictured above! Next rig we do is for her! ;)

    Hey guys, how are you all doing? It's been a while since I last posted, I've had a few things happen in my life that have kept me "occupied" for the last couple of months; I've really missed the TPU community, and here I am, back to post the latest update to my rig, I hope you guys like it :)

    I hope you get better soon, good luck, and thanks for the extra effort with your reviews :)

    Thanks man! and I haven't even tried OCing them yet :p

    Thanks bro, it's good to see you all again :)

    That's the "New Dawn" demo, running at 5760x1080 :) I think I might try a WC loop in the future, for now I just raise the fan speed to 70%, and you're right, the bottom card is running around 4~5 degrees cooler than the top one, but they don't go over 75 degrees as of yet
