New addition to my system! Water cooled GTX680!
W/C GPU but not CPU? You've done it the other way round to everyone else, ha.
Plans to get a CPU block?
Yeah buddy when I go Haswell or Ivy Bridge E.
and yeah I know, but my 2500k at full load doesnt get higher then 50c anyways haha.
Mine atm. Looking a little sad and neglected , Needing a birthday. Time to change loop , tubing and get rid of dust and algae.
New tubing, some cleaning and it would be good as new.
some cleaning would go a long way and pulling the tubes off and cleaning them would help too if you didn't get new.
Love the way that GPU waterblock is so flat
What are we using as coolant these days? That is just straight distilled water and has been in there for a long time so not surprised it is a bit on the green side.
Wait - the tubes aren't green themselves?
Nope.... The black ones are black but the others are supposed to be clear. I guess if you neglect to change the water in your loop for a long time this happens......
It's great to see someone else running an X58 setup
Even for four years old, they're still wicked powerful
I figured as much. That's why I ran dexcool in mine. No discoloration after ignoring it for two years.
See no need to upgrade the beast yet
I myself used distilled water with a little of the swiftech coolant to help stop the things from growing in it or the petra's stuff(can't remember the name) i got out of water cooling a while ago, closest thing i have is a h50 on a c2d based pentium
My X58 is just a cruncher, but yes, it's still very solid. With a SSD, a modern GPU, and more than 2GB of RAM, it could run nearly anything
Nice to see you around, hope all has been well
Thanks , all has been well I have been lurking every now and then and finally decided to break my silence and show all my filthy computer
You decided to keep it?
Still for sale.
But thats my rig at the moment.
At the moment:
I think you should get a lightning card to match your rig, I know a guy that's selling one
I actually didn't end up sticking with the OC Formula. Ran into a couple of issues with my Xonar DX and Seagate Backup Plus 3TB. Returned it, and sticking with my Z68 gear for now. I'm unfortunately working too many hours per week to be able to play around with hardware that doesn't work flawlessly. Otherwise, I would highly consider grabbing it.
Haven't touched her in a few months so I decided to give her some TLC. Switced to the raystorm block, dusted it out a little, changed from white to clear tubing and switched the 7950's to pcie slots 2 and 4 so they both run at x16.
