Does that physx card actually do anything any more ? or are you using it to play older games
Mirror's Edge mainly
my 2 years old PC
Nice zalman cooler! I have not seen once of those installed in a while.
Not a particularly impressive system, but whatever:
I'm having fun with the cool weather--50F ambients for the radiator give marvelous temperatures indeed!
I was getting ~40C full load with the CPU @ 3.6GHz & 1.28V, I'm experimenting now and I'm running it at 3.83GHz & 1.38V (high, I know--I'm shooting for 4GHz with this voltage) and temperatures are 54c on the hottest core and 48c on the coldest. Awesome
My first thought exactly! How is it performing? I have heard some nice words about it.
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
