    My newest project:

    Not the fastest system ever, but it's small & quiet, and with an i3, 8GB of RAM, and an 8800GTS 512 it's still very snappy :toast:

    Had to go to the PC store to get some thermal paste, bought another DisplayPort cable at the same time, and finally got my 3x U2412M monitors in Eyefinity:

    BF3 on medium, 3600x1920, still getting ~60FPS. Pretty impressive for a single 7950.

    Now, THAT is eyefinity. I saw this "way" of mounting monitors at one convention with Starcraft@ on it- much better in my opinion that the widescreen eyefinity- which I find perfect for racing games, but not much else out there. But this, this is the real deal :)

    The only problem is that the screen is far too massive, and that leads to me actually having less viewing space within my natural field of vision. Performance was decent, and quite playable for sure, but I am back to one monitor this morning.

    And yeah, Portrait mode for FPS, landscape for racing. That means a "proper" Eyefinity setup needs to have monitors on arms that can spin easily... I merely put them that way as that is the only way they would fit on that desk. :p

    Bezels might bother some...was alright for me, but it does have an effect too, I'm sure.

    Nice. I think if you could set up a 5 x 1 group in portrait mode that would be better, but I like a 3 x 1 to be in landscape mode. To me it's just more natural and it matches the natural field of vision better: peripheral vision is typically more side to side than up/down.

    Oh, and Dave, you can join us here.....

    I have 3x 23-inch already. I did have 6 at one point. As good as Eyefinity can be, I don't think I am ready for it myself. I need a PC dedicated to gaming for that, and a PC for normal daily tasks. I currently enjoy 1920x1200 more than anything...I do have a 30-inch 3008WFP, too, I don't like that for gaming, either.

    What really amazes me, though, is that BF3 was more than playable.. and from the wall.. the entire rig, monitors and all, was at peak less than 400 W. Stereo included(stock clocks, obviously).

    I can't do normal stuff with those bezels though, it quite literally aggravates me. But to kick back and use STEAM's Big Picture, or racing...man...nothing is better.

    dropped in a mobo today, now i hafta make up my mind,

    2700k or 3570k.....(own both)

    also have 32gb mushkin 1866 1.35v and 2 gtx 670 dcii cards w/EK blocks...

    [​IMG]

    would you go SBi7 or IBi5???

    that switch 810 was FAR less w/c friendly (140mm based rads anyway) than i thought...

    had to do quite a bit of modding and dremel work to get them in there....

    the biggest flaw i see with the Switch is NZXT's decision to put 20mm between the 140 fans on the top...kinda sucks... but the front didnt have that problem,,,standard 15mil spacing

    Probably the 3570k, hyperthreading is a waste of time.

    New primary crunching rig. Moved the two HD 7770's out of my main rig (give the GTX 580's more room to breath).
    (Thanks to Cold Storm for a great deal on the i7 2700K and Crucial RAM:))
    [​IMG]

    Besides the CPU and RAM - the cruncher consists of an ASUS P8Z68-V Z68, 3 x VisionTek HD 7770's, Dark Night cooler, and a Corsair CX750.

    That look really good :toast:

    I'd encourage putting a 120mm fan over the GPUs--from my experience, a fan blowing down over them really helps :toast:

    thats kinda difficult to make it cleaner coz your case has limited space to re route those cables

    I will be checking the temps on them once I get her crunching. I have done that in the past when benching...
