Nice setup bro!!!
you should be able to hit 950/1375,
thats what i did without adding more voltage, on some cheapo Powercolors.
is it full cover you will be putting on them?
new mobo, EVGA SLI LE
yes i know the wm sucks, but wont be better until i have a modular psu
I like these Asus cards, they are arranged differently than other ones I have seen (nice for water cooling)
I have some old Koolance GPU-180-L06 sitting in a box somewhere (since these arent 5870s heat isant that big of an issue) But il throw on some Enzo copper heatsinks as well just for fun
one thing i dont like though is that its got VGA output, shoulda been dual dvi's
they came with Hdmi to DVi adaptors.. Honestly, I will never use more than 1 LCD and I would rather have the full width exhaust than the extra DVI.
(And to me I use the VGA every once in a while so I like having it)
I saw the full coverage water coolers EK, they look cool but I dont think they will fit these cards.
one other factor is I got this card from Newegg for $124 so I wasent gonna complain too much..
Huh. PCI-E Power supply for gpu, mem on external? Only one Crossfire connector? Interesting...
well each to his own i guess
those koolance actually fits on them, how old are they?
Really old...server stuff I think..
(I can make anything fit, lol)
I saw the 1 Crossfire connector and figured I would never buy a 3rd one so it was fine. I really like the way the card is engineered (makes it nice to add cooling to it)
well as long as its gonna be doing the job then it dont matter how old it is
and i believe that, just a matter of skills
Looking good Mark, welcome aboard How's gaming with this new setup?
LOL, gaming was fine with a 5750... with a pair of 5770s its pretty smooth...
(im really bummed the 5830s turned out to be such a sucky deal)
My AMD Quad at 3.8 GHz with a single 5770 is awesome. I Have yet to try with the SSD.
how did it work out for you with the SSD?
I haven't gamed with it yet. I have my stuff backed up in a damn Windows Easy Transfer File. I can only transfer back to a drive with Windows, my SSD obviously does not have the space to fit 500GB of files. So I gotta find a way to get a drive that has that capacity and install windows on it. Then transfer the files to it and from that drive to my 1TB with a Seagate utility or something. PITA so I haven't done it yet.
ew, thats gonna be a hassle,
hope it turns out well for you bro
Thanks bro, it's a hassle I just gotta get into it and just do it, been too lazy LOL
haha i know how that feels
but when you get into it it wont really take that long, and then you feel happy that you finally got youself together and did it when its done
Yeah, another thing is I haven't had much time neither. Maybe this weekend...
my rig is awake again going to post some benchmarks with just a 4850X2 i wonder how it compares to the 5770's in xfire....
kind of late but 4870x2 rest of my stats are in system specs.
I'm interested in those benches too! Let me know.
well that could have something to do with it hopefully you get it sorted out without anymore SSD truoble or any other trouble
i ws VERY surprised when i ran my 2 4850s, they were like 10% slower than my 2 5770s
dont have them any more though, woulda been nice to do a run on the i7
The SSD Is ok, the RAID was causing issues, it's disabled for now till I can figure out what's wrong with it.
