Look at what arrived from Taiwan from the Gigabyte-TPU contest! Only took 4 days to get here too.
Were you running like a white solution before? Because that light blue looks sooooo much better!
Ha!, yeah, it's actually pastel White with Emerald Green dye... i'm not the best with the camera so it's my fault - i really need to take five minutes and figure out the settings.
I've got my 680 with block up for sale on another forum atm, i just hope there is a buyer so i can numb the pain of this titan!... and i'm not a rich guy.
and if you really have time for 4 pages: http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/guides/2010/02/15/better-photographs-of-your-mod/
Thanks ste2425 but i cba with that either lol!, i'm getting by ok atm but thanks for the help.
ha that's alright its only lil' old us that have to look at your photos.
LOL, i mean i am having to take at least ten shots to one that i think is ok with changing settings etc ... it's a numbers game! - i get a decent shot eventually.
The new mobo has moved into its new house. Ye' olde' 570 is back in the black box because I'm using the orange box (<- you see what I did there) the most so I moved the 580 into it. The good news was that I hardly had to change any of the cable routing because most of the ports were in the similar locations to the older UD5. Bad news was that my blue ram that matched the UD5, now looks out of place on the G1.Sniper but I don't mind much now because my case doesn't have a window.
Here is the 580 in the orange box
Huge thanks again to TPU and Gigabyte for an awesome giveaway!
Pop quiz: Who designed the logo on my desktop wallpaper?
Just decided to update my peripherals, with a roccat series of goodies:
The 'Coons approve
8Meg phone camera clearly sucks the balls
Out with the god awful piece of crap Razer Black Widow Ultimate and ThermalTake Theron
In with the new! Phone camera doesnt do their shininess any justice at all! Also got a Roccat Kave 5.1 headset two days ago, Fatal1ty was hurting my ears!
Got my Titan block on.
much better shame you carn't see the fluid going through it like the block in one of your previous photo's.
Always wondered how can you tell if the pump fails? Im guessing you can't actually see the fluid moving? Do the pumps make noise?
stuff starts getting warmer and warmer.
When the coolant comes out throug the seals on the GPU-block then you know the pump has stopped, been there done that.
Wasn't it Reayth???
My HP xw8600
- 2x Xeon E5420 (2.5GHz Yorkfield)
- 4x1GB FB-DDR2
- 74GB WD Raptor
- HP 800w 80+ PSU
- HP D5400 motherboard
- Geforce 8500GT
I'm not excessively fond with the big string of cables at the bottom, but they are stiff and there isn't really anything to do with them (also, I can't imagine that they impede airflow). HP decided that it would be OK to have a pair of 80w CPUs + GPUs in a case with no intake fan and a 1000RPM exhaust; I feel otherwise, so I put a Corsair fan in the front (cable ties!)
I'm contemplating de-riveting the HDD cage and then putting in a 2nd 120mm intake--I think that delivering cool air directly to the CPUs might help a bit (load temps are mid-to-upper 60s C in standard room temp)
you need enough light and you need stable hand to have a better shot, yeah phone cam is kinda crappy especially when you have low light but its phone with camera not camera with phone
btw its kinda nice to have new toys
cable management is kinda painful, need time, need effort, need creativity
but the result is good, not best but so far is pretty good
btw i run out of zipties so i just use any color that i could find
Your c/m looks pretty good to me! Nice pci slot covers too
edit: hey, can we see a picture with the back panel on?
thanks, the pci covers are come from anywhere. old pc, old vga card, one i found on the road (someone dropped it) just paint it and they work well
im gonna post the case later
The Mailman did it, with the lead pipe in the ...
That's right mjk !!! I still rock that logo on my phone wallpaper, love it!
Hammer you were close, Reayth designed this
^^ Wait I thought I was playing Clue. I never win at that.
Can't down load a pic of my pc.
