It's not about needing grommets - it just looks more complete and premium when there is one since there is no gap between the cables and casing....
You really should be harder on these power supplies with not enough pci-e connectors.
In this day and age a psu like this with its full 550w...
PowerColor's HD 7850 SCS3 doesn't produce any noise because it is passively cooled and, as such, fanless
Even coil noise?
The increased idle...
This has a backplate and the cooler is definitely on another level...
Not impressed with those noise and temp levels.
Please review the Inno3d 780 Ice Dragon.
GTX 570 + GTX 560 TI = not working, BSOD after enabling SLI
:) I have already ordered a 750w just to be extra safe!
ps: 1 more post for 1337
Yep but again that's total system usage (from the wall) not just the graphics card.
Thats the HD classified which is overclocked, mine are both at stock speeds
hehe, one is reference and the other is the evga 570 hd which is quite a bit shorter.
So my psu is fine with 500 reading at the wall (assuming that it's correct) :pimp:
Isn't the 560 from the wall. So that is around 470w or am I getting this wrong? Is it the usage at the wall that counts or what the components...
"Our test system is based on a power hungry Core i7 965 / X58 system. This setup is...
My idle to load difference at the wall is 300-400w. I think that seems right for 2 gtx 570's
Of course they are, check the vantage link a few posts back. That is 300 total system not just the graphics card.
I guess the power monitor must be faulty then ;) 380-470 at the wall in vantage
If I get a reading of 500w from the wall, how much are the components actually using if the psu has 85 percent efficiency.
3d mark vantage results
power usage was 380w to 470w (320-408 taking 85% efficiency into account)on the gpu...
I thought I had to turn the push pins in the direction of the arrow, the instructions are probably the worst I've seen. There is literally one...
Heaven benchmark with same settings as this review to compare sli 570 to gtx 680 + 7970,
A bit faster...
I see you have a tx3 also. Are you meant to rotate the push pins in the direction of the arrow after pushing them in?
Here's a screenshot of some quick benchmarks I just did. Heaven was run with cpu and gpu's at stock. Super pi + IBT was at 4.2ghz.
Yep just gave it a quick overclock, never overclocked a sandybridge processor before. Changed multiplier to 42. Haven't figured out how the...
Running prime 95 now and temps have stabilized at 51/53/50/50
When I was installing the cooler I had to take it off multiple times as I couldn't...
Just finished putting together my new pc. Had a bit of trouble installing the cooler ( coolermsater tx3 ) It was like solving a very difficult...
