When the going gets tough, you pull out your heavy weapons. X79, we meet again
i picked 2 boxes up after work today, one from sweden and one from my country shipped by mail...
so now u can guess what there is inside and yes both is hardware (The small box is for my friend, the big one is for myself ^^
I love the immense size of skt2011 CPUs.
People complain about X79, but you look at these boards and you look at the size of everything and it really makes you wonder.
I do love my machine though, there are so many haters.
Something i'm working on - big credit to the guys at Patriot memory!
32 GB 1600 MHz C8? lucky guy.
you have good eyes!
Really? I zoomed in and it looks like DDR3-1600 (10-10-10-27) 1.5v.
its single digits. thats for sure and it looks 8
Did I make a statement, or ask a question?
I DIDN'T zoom in, and I see PV332G160C-QKRD.
Could be a "0". C11 stuff lists as "C1QK"
Looks like you're right.
Way to be a dick...dick
Way to be a troll, troll.
A question, and I answered it by zooming in.
dick dick dick.
now now kids, get along...
But mom, HE STARTED IT!
watch it guys ....
Not exactly sexy...
Hope that wasn't one of your cherry sticks.
Just put it back, whistle and pretend nothing happened
Nope, worst offender of the 4, had to rip it apart to find out what IC, because of the weirdness I was experiencing. Should have taken a bit more time leaving it in the freezer. Or maybe heated it up...whatever.
Good news is, got the other 5 sticks stable now, figured it out real quick. Which is good, now I can finish the review, I'll just use one of the sticks form the other kit.
shots of what was in the small box...
i was like where is the memory when i opened the box
but i found them when i opened the box
he brought my i5-2500k since i got i5-3570k.
my friend will be upgrading from Intel Core 2 Duo E8200, Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4 and 4gb Mushkin DDR2 memory, and he will keep his Gainward GeForce GTX 460 1GB for now.
That particular type of thermal adhesive is easiest to remove using a heat gun set to its lowest setting(usually ~350F) for just long enough to make the metal a little too hot to hold. That should turn the adhesive into the consistency of warm chewing gum(rubbery and stringy) and allow you to pull the heatspreader without risking pulling a chip while still allowing you to replace the spreader using the same adhesive.
I've used this method on a DDR2 G.Skill kit(think they were Pi series), two seperate kits of Patriot Viper series DDR3(one kit was DDR3-2000 1.9-2.0v for P55 and had those old green heatspreaders, the other kit is DDR3-2000 1.65v and uses the newer style black heatspreaders), and a set of DDR2 Crucial(don't remember what series).
The thermal tape(the gray, soft pad-like stuff) is easier using the freezer method.
Hope this helps you out in the future!
So should i hold back about what's in the big box?
