    I suggest trying to use other lighting than the flash for those real close-ups to avoid the shadows. Try using a manual setting with low ISO and mount the camera on a tripod. You'll love the results.

    Love how this photo looks. It's kinda like saying, serious power but in a mild sublime way.

    Meh, you're missing 3 MB of cache only....seems the "K" chips are good clockers. At least you got decent cooling, too. I guess I gotta put together a loop, too.


    Whadda you think about that block on these chips?

    1. I don't have the official bolts from Watercool, so I'm not sure if I have the right amount of tension on it.

    2. When I mounted the block, I used the last of my Noctua NT-H1 compound, so I could not take the block back off to check the spread. I've just been reinstalling the OS and apps, so no real loads have been put on it yet.

    3. My plan was to order some new compound when the bolt kits arrived in the next week or so, then replace the bolts, remove the block and check the spread. These chips are so huge it's hard to judge whether you have enough on there, especially with a thick compound like the Noctua.
