Nice perspective on that pic dave, like it
The lighting on that RAM is super sweet. Great looking rig
Nice, you got the new Dominators.
How much RAM do you have between those sticks, 16 or 32GB? What speed are they? How are they performing? Have you tried overclocking them yet?
Sorry to ask a bunch of questions, but I've been waiting for these to finally hit the states.
Hi guys, my last upgrade in 2012, one more gtx670.
16 GB, 2666 MHz, and no other details until a review is posted! Few weeks at least, for that. Should have the X79 Champ1on review, then a Gigabyte board, then Maximus V Formula, then these sticks (I do one review per week).
Anyway, they've just arrived, so the rest I cannot really answer . It's very nice to see the lights aren't overly bright though, and are rather subdued. They are intended for Z77, but this kit is working great on X79!
The Champion board rather sticks out...gonna have to try a different one out and see if I cannot solidify the colour scheme.
Oh, the wait is killing me!
The best that the egg has is the 4x4G kit of 2400. Really wanted to pick up the 2666 or 2800 kit, and the press release from about a month ago said they would be releasing a 4x8G kit up to either 2666 or 2400. I know that's asking a lot of the IMC of my little 3820(which i recently discovered is actually a pretty cherry chip), but hey, IVB-E will be able to push those speeds and densities.
Corsair, hear me now:
Well, that's X79 in that pic, no problem with 2400 MHz with reasonable IMC voltage, too.
I meant 2666 or 2800 would be asking a lot. These Sammies broke 2500 without a problem, it just wasn't stable at the voltage I'm comfortable putting through the RAM.
Any thoughts on what board I should use?
Asus! X79 ROG
Can you say no to ROG? I couldn't
I don't have that one, unfortunately, can only just pick from the boards I have reviewed. I'm not stuck to SKT2011, either.
paint the black heatsinks on the mb white, then it would be epic stuff
may have a update on the rig this weekend
hopefully i can get me a dual rad and a pump, then i can haz water on my system
here's mine, my gaming rig at the moment..(switch to AMD HD7970 while in working mode)
^^^ rig looks great!
The x79 champion should be able to push those sticks to their limit. Or, you know you could always ship me the RAM and 3960x and see if 3000MHz is possible...
I borrowed my daughter's mouse because my Lachesis is playing up really bad..
I think it's time for a new desk!
I love your CD spindle case feet!
unfortunately not. At least not in the time I have given them so far. I intend to use Z77 for the review anyway, and on there...much diff story.
nice catch on that one!
I didn't get it.. My CD spindle isn't in any of those photos? And I just checked it... it doesn't have feet...
Here's how to spoil your kid - my 'Black Panther' rig (see system specs), all for my little Panther herself. I just kept the U2711 and Z5500, she's using a 22" LG Flatron and unlike me she prefers head-sets:
They were talking about the post above yours
Also, cant believe she gets a 5970
Yes it's overkill for that monitor and cpu, but I just can't part away from it.
I had spent an entire day figuring out and pulling and pushing bits and pieces of that case just to fit that 5970 inside while keeping it looking decent.
The entire works is like a trophy for me...
You have her gaming at a young age, and Oblivion at that!
Great parenting, and there is absolutely no sarcasm in there.
GTX460-1GB, 4GB assorted DDR2, Intel 965 Express Board, WiFi, C2D E6600, 250+320GB HDD, Antec TPN 650w. Using this for the next week or so until my i7 860, ASRock board, and new RAM arrives.
