    ORIGIN PC Announces 4K-Gaming Ready, NVIDIA Approved, BattleBox System SKUs

    I have to agree with Slomo4shO to a degree but this made my day.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan SLI

    Well now I'm really torn... I 'd like to up my system performance for 5760x1080 but it seems the 690 and Titan trade blows in 2x Sli. It'd be a lot easier for me to just grab another 690 than trying for 2 titans and selling my current 690. Besides raw frame rates what did you feel to be the...

    Respectable Cooling?

    Wow, those are some amazing results. When I get the time I will contribute by swapping between the RX120 and RX240 radiators. Although, I'll only be able to test a CPU+GPU loop. Planning on reducing the amount of tubing, dropping the 120 would really help make it look cleaner.

    Respectable Cooling?

    Crazyeyes that's impressive, wasn't aware how tough the CPUs are. Been paranoid about putting a hole in the CPU and socket. Sneeky, I read a lot of threads saying people looking at i7+GTX 480 should consider 480x120 radiators. I went RX120+RX240 to avoid a major mod to my case. Glad the...

    Respectable Cooling?

    Ya, I think I've heard of that somewhere. I was under the impression that lowering the operating temperatures improves the maximum lifespan on electrical devices. With a reasonble Vcore PLL and such of course. I'd like to keep the processor for five years or longer.

    Long term extreme cpu oc. Ill effects anyone?

    Had an E8500 @ 4Ghz w/ 1.3~ Vcore for about 2 years. Still ran like brand new when I sold it. Curious how long it would have kept going.

    Respectable Cooling?

    Built this system about two months ago and I've finally settled on final OC settings. I'm considering another RX240; which requires a significant modifcation to the top of my Lian-Li case. Giving me a total of 5x120 radiator space. Is there a way to calculate how significant a tempurature...

    First GPU/CPU LC Build. Comments are welcome. : ) Not sure what I want to do next or even if I want another radiator. Ideas on how I should go about installing a LC monitoring system would be appreciated.

    10/10 for an extremely well thought out LC loop. I love it. : )

    PC-P50 Liquid Cooled

    Got some better results off the GTX 480 after spending more time with it. Was able to slightly increase the core frequency and significantly bump up the memory with less voltage. Made a twenty minute OCCT GPU run w/ error checking. 900 Mhz is so close... but not worth going past 1.138...

    PC-P50 Liquid Cooled

    Finished my all new build tonight. Started with a simple CPU loop in my Antec 300 for an E8500 and thought it time to expand. Everything went smoothly except the local metal finisher took longer than expected. So, I got to stare at all the new components for a good week before I got started...

    Best Radiator

    The XSPC RX radiators are very nice. I'm using a 120 with an Antec double ball bearing fan at 2000 rpms. Can barely hear it when pulling air through the radiator inside the case. Some fans rated at similar dBA will have an annoying high pitch. Noticed this with sleeved fans usually.

    E8500 Oc

    Thanks for the tip. Got my NB set to 1.26 right now. I'll see what happens. EDIT: I gave the NB a push towards 1.4v with FSB at 445x9 and gave the CPU 1.25v. System still likes to not post and reset bios to default.

    E8500 Oc

    New E8500 OC after installing WC. Ran both large and small FFT tests. One in the picture is the large FFT. I've tried for 4GHz, but my board does not like the FSB going much higher than 400 w/ 4GB of memory installed. O-o

    GA-P45-UD3P Memory troubles.

    I don't think my G.Skills are microns unfortunately. Going off that Kingston is not all that great I tried 2x2 corsair sticks. Works like a charm now. :) Been running Prime for 5 hours, the fact my system posted with pc8500 settings was heart warming. Currently E8500 @ 3.8 w/ 1.168...

    RX 120 in an Antec 300.

    No, the orange one is 8x only. I have never seen a performance hit while playing my games though. Not too worried about the rad obstructing the view; my panel is solid. I'll fill out the specs right now. Thanks :)

    RX 120 in an Antec 300.

    Finally got the parts installed after receiving them yesterday. Everything fit perfectly except the EK bolts had to be trimmed for radiator clearance. Performance wise, max load temps dropped 8C from 60 to 52 on Prime 95 Large FFT tests with E8500 @ 3.8 Idle temps are pretty much the same as...

    GA-P45-UD3P Memory troubles.

    I'm unsure whether they are dual sided chips or not. All the ram modules are identical; that I am absolutely sure of. I tried 1.44 on the NB/MCH with 2.1v on the ram @ 1069. System got to the post screen then hanged before rebooting itself for the cycle to continue. I changed the latch to...

    Thanks I'll give that a shot and get back to you guys. NB is MCH on Gigabyte boards right?

    GA-P45-UD3P Memory troubles.

    I bought an extra 2x1 GB G.Skill PC8500 memory modules that match my existing 2x1 GB G.Skill sticks for a total of 4GB on my Gigabyte GA-P45-UD3P motherboard. However, as soon as the extra memory was installed my system would hang on post and reboot. Rinse and repeat, system would run normal...

    Single RX120 enough?

    Thank you. I must be reading the reviews wrong... perhaps I'm seeing total system power not CPU power. LOL ya, I wasn't reading the title of the graphs... You are definitely right about 30 watts stock. So for this proc. It seems I'm looking forward to great performance. Zanzabar, thanks for...

    Single RX120 enough?

    I've tried researching the wattage that the two radiators can dissapate on skinee labs. The E8500 run stock at about 95W... OC im not sure. But probably no more than 130W~ Flow rate should be extremely high, short of getting a modded 655 pump. Using skinnee's data I figured my delta will be...

    Single RX120 enough?

    I'm finally investing in water cooling parts for my current system. The only part that will be in the loop is an E8500 @ 3.8 w/ 1.24 vcore. Current temps are about 55 C max with 25 C ambient while running games. I'd like to get this to drop down to about 40~45 while loaded. My big question is...
