Cant wait to see the picts.. I wish I had a day off
dont think I can wait till monday! lol
Don't worry man, there will be pictures before then! There will be pictures!
You can resist no more than I can wait!
Well, just look at the specs.. You'll see... lol.. I'm going to try and tear this chip up!
"something new to come" .........should be this thread's title!
Yep, all ways "something new to come"!!!!
But, after this little stuff this weekend, res, and maybe watering the mobo, I'll be done.. Maybe..
Well, since I've been working 14h+ at work, I really haven't had time to do any of the modifications that I have been needing to do.. Or, wanting so to say... So, Why not play with the hardware instead?
790i Ultra Board
4gb (6gb kit) G Skill Trident 2000. 9-9-9-24 at 2000mhz 1.8v (Stock is 1.65v but I threw them in to get it to boot, didn't want to worry.. )
Asus Xonar D2X PCI-e Card
All right, reason why this and not x58....
My Qx isn't done yet.. Well, I feel it isn't done yet.. I'll do this set up, and see how it does. I really don't feel, since I have this Qx, that a X58 set up is right for me.. Yeah, it's higher end, but I'm now looking into work, work, and more work... So, I just want to get a steady system. To me, this will do quite fine.
Plus... Because of seeing mods from MK, Cyberdruid, Steelkane, & along with others, I feel my modding of computer cases isn't done quite yet! I still gotta do a dl base one!!!
So, that's what I have been doing.. Fun stuff!
Now time for bed!
Your build is looking great, I'll build many rigs more powerful then my personal one,, I'll get allot of use out of my firstname.lastname@example.org. It's always nice to have the latest & greatest but why fix it if it's not broken, But I was looking at putting together an AMD Phenom II X4 for myself,, the price to build one is so cheap compared to intel i7.
Yeah, I know what your saying. I bought a PII 955 chip from Damulta and I can't wait to build that... I7 just doesn't give me a reason to... I'm over the bench bug I believe..
same here. I havent benched in months. I just enjoy tweaking the rig and adding/removing stuff I have more kick out of putting together a PC than benching one nowadays.
I know it's late but I just noticed your mobo and you know OCZ has that SLI certified ram that is supposed to be the shiznit on the 790i mobos.... I use it and it sweeet.
Yeah, it's just really not the same since everyone gets pretty much the same thing as someone else.. Don't get me wrong, People go via if you say it's good.. But, It's not just for what you like anymore it seems to me...
Thanks for the thought on ram. I was having a toss up on the OCZ Reapers 1866, or the Mushkin 1600. But Then I went with these since I know with the PII build I'll go and grab a ddr3 board and just have it to do... HTPC/DL should be fine w/ 2gb for the start.
I'm not sure yet if I am going to or not go to i7. I really would like to try the Evga LT board, but I don't want to give up this chip! Even if it is to my brother!
(to me there is nothing wrong with benching and I think its cool that some can push their hardware to its limits... however refining your stuff to make it the best it can be 24/7 thats the gold ring)
the more I get into building things, aquire experience and knowledge on modding, the more I think of ways to improve my rigs...
CS... looking massive!
They see me Rollin'
Those are amazing for even 5X the $.. Excellent find steelkane
(now imagining a set on the Qpack)
MK, it would be sweet if it was sitting on the Qpack!!!!
that was funny CS, wheels look good though man, how much were they again?
CS, What are the angled barbs in your system? I've looked at Sidewinder but not exactly sure I would be getting what I need. Can you link where you got them?
They're Bitspower fittings. Most of the h20cooling shops have 'em.
Bitspower 45d barb from performance PC's.. Black Sparkle on mine.
PPC has a lot of fittings from Bitpowers. alot of new ones as well
Thanks, I found the 1/4" but not sure if they come in 1/2" versions.
Damn! $15! I need do need a couple, but it'll take some time talking myself into it.
