Bought some new stuff, and tried being creative with my phone
Figured I'd repaste my 7770 while it's sitting out on my desk. Despite being only 4 screws, the cooler was a PITA to get back on
Love the webpage reflection
The Good Friday was great indeed! Got myself a Corsair GS 700 2013 edition today.
happy easter everyone
Custom tempered glass mouse mat just arrived. Feels silky smooth, best peripheral I've dropped cash on.
260x340 tempered glass with a satin blasted face for tracking.
How much did it cost you?.
£24 inc postage
Nice, i might put in an order for a glass panel for my TJ08, the stock one scratches way too easily.
Does it sit flush or is it a bit raised over the rest of the desk. I can't tell.
It's flush against the front left corner, it doesn't slide much surprisingly, but I'll probably invest in some extremely thin rubber feet to prevent it from moving at all. It's not overly thick or rough against the hand either, so it's quite comfortable for the wrist.
Future items on my review list, a few not pictured? The CRYORIG R1 Universal and be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 are coming soon as well.
So stay tuned!
Look forward to the reviews
New Lamptron FC5 V2.
Got a new chassis. Thought it deserved a few snap shots.
I had one of those Tundra coolers when i thought i could give up proper watercooling, my 4770k would hit almost 85c at 1.3v, hence i had to switch back, they look great though and are built like a tank.
I only used it with one fan in push because of the FT03 space limitations, might have helped if i used another to pull.
Might that be the fabled 4790?
I'm using the same cooler on an FX8350 @4.2 with push-pull fans (Silverstone/Swiftech style fans)- temps run 43-46C crunching at full load
@JATownes - what are you getting for temps on your 9370 with that cooler? Also, was it a real pain to install that cooler on an AMD board or is it just me?
Haswell is a beast tbh, so it's not really the same thing.
Understand 100% was just curious how it did on the 9370 clocked at firstname.lastname@example.org.... probably would have been better quoting the post above yours
It idles at about 32-33c, but under load the cooler starts heating up substantially. After a 1hr OCCT run, the socket temps reach into the low 60's but the cores stay a (relatively) balmy 55-57c.
That being said, long gaming runs (3-4 hrs) of BF4 or Crysis 3 the socket temps get in the high 50's but the cores max out about 50-52c.
It really is a decent cooler, but no comparison to real water. And thanks for not giving me hell about my old 6870s, I don't really game much anymore, so it hasn't been a priority. I actually hadn't touched my rig in over a year, until my wife bought me a 9370 and the cooler for Xmas. She woke the beast back up and now I'm thinking it's time for full blown water (this hurts her feelings since she bought me the cooler) and a pair of 290x's but I'll need a heftier power supply than this 850 to pull that off. It's the money pit again, and I'M LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT (much to her chagrin).
EDIT: I'm running out of the house, so don't have time for a full OCCT run, but this is a quick 3DMark 11 run I just took. All case fans are controlled by the PWM Hub in the case, and the radiator fans are at about 50-60% using the fan controller.
6870's are great cards.. nothing wrong with them imo- I had an MSI 6870 Hawk myself and it always did great!! I only moved to Radeon 7xxx cards for the massive jump in OpenCL compute output otherwise I would still have it
I set my rig up with 120mm fan over the VRM's and it seems to help a lot:
* excuse the dust- rig is due for a better cleaning
Had a lot of trouble mounting the cooler- will reconfigure the mounting system next time I take the rig down for maintenance
