I take it this was successful?
Yes sir, successful yet scary. I made a thread over here with a little more info
The Gopro is one nifty piece of tech:
But with the hope of good footage, more platter space was needed!
While everyone else is showing of their little showboaty SSD's, Green is still the way of the future !
nice build, i just saw it on facebook
what camera that you use, the pic looks pretty nice
Thanks man, but for pictures like this the camera really doesn't play that big of a role (imo). Get the lighting right and you're almost there.
I thought people would be more curious about #7609 to be honest =))
Tried some self-made mods to increase ASUS Hotwire limits?!? only one worked.
Size perspective(one of the components on a guitar pik):
Ballsy move, Dave. looks good but....
I can't believe you use the. 88 tortex.
I fancy the orange .6 myself
mods are fairly basic... and info for how to fix Hotwire function for software-voltage-locked models of ASUS 7970 DCUII isn't out there yet. There is info for other models of cards, but what to do is not listed for this specific model, so I had to remove and replace parts until I found which one worked (remove PR122, located under backplate). Once it worked, I tried on other outputs, or what I thought was other outputs, but no change noticed, and card functions fine. Before removing PR122, max via HotWire was a meager 1.125V, when stock is 1.1V. That limited the card to 1070 benchable. now I can push over 1.4V easily, but over 1.35V crashes the card...normal stuff for 7970 now. At least I can OC the card to 1200 Mhz now with 1.325V.
And yeah...I like to dig into the strings at times, I use orange and yellow Tortex too.
so you will run like that or take it to the stock since only one that work?
special guest ... my index ... duh
So you did solder back on the components that didn't change anything?
Yep. That's how I spent New Years Eve.
I think I Need to actually replace what WAS removed (PR122) as well, with something of a higher value.
Why? are you experiencing issues?
Nope. But previously GPU Hotwire value of 96-97 had huge jump, but now this range is @ 64-65.
0 = 1.1 V, 96= 1.275 V, 97= 1.365V.
0 = 1.1 V, 64 = 1.295V, 65 = 1.335V, 66 = 1.34V, 67 = 1.356V.
I want to hit 1.3 V. I have gotten closer, for sure, but not quite where I want to be. This is just amusement for me anyway, not trying to "fix" anything, just making sure I can still solder tiny crap successfully more than anything else.
Doesn't have to be my sexay hardware right? This is from IT Diva (Darlene) at OCN. I don't think I have ever felt more inadequate.
