Just something for my GTX 1080 Ti FE before I am getting deaf :banghead::roll:

D728CA77-0BEE-42FC-A89A-25A0F02C06DE.jpeg

Oki this SC cooler is a joke, srsly the fan is hitting the cover when u tightening the hex screw so this here is getting shipped back first thing tomorrow, just wasted like 3 hours or more trying to figure out what was the raddleing noise was, then I took a closer look before mounting the backplate :banghead::banghead:


I guess it's a bad cover not gonna dremmel or anything in this it should fit from the factory and this don't back it goes and I will demand my money back...:shadedshu:

Video where u can hear that I spin the fan with my finger and it's hitting the cover:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-oZtTLFq_--SW84d181RTVhU1k/view?usp=sharing

*Update* after posting on EVGA's forum it turns out it gonna need a break in time well I am not sure that's healthy for the fan to hit the shroud and I can't read that in the manual and plus all my thermal pads didn't came with any film to take off doing the installation as it said in the manual.

More info will come in the review....





















j/k. It's attached (not permanently though), but I don't want to post too many pics so I have some left for the review. I'm not exactly reviewing the cooling per se, but I am doing the board and cooling as a single solution.

Not at all; just have to wait for the memory to arrive, but I'll get it all installed and ready to go as soon as I get back from my trip delivering wife and kids to their daily destinations. ;)

Memory will probably show up in the next day or so, so that gives me plenty of time to work on pictures and such... I am so excited to get this up and running with a 7980XE and see what's what!

Took some close-up photos of my "new" :D boards. Some of them turned out quite well. Sorry for not cleaning the boards first... this is how they arrived. On the other hand I think the dust adds the right retro feeling :)

Siemens Nixdorf D969 Socket 7 ATX MB. Notice the removeable external cache next to the socket.

And from the other side - i430HX + PIIX3 chipset.
PICT2189.JPG


Also i430HX, but this time on a different MB. Acer OEM board of some kind, can't remember the exact model.
PICT2195.JPG


Part of the deal was also Pentium 133, the real classics. :)

nice stuff but when referring to the external cache just call it a C.O.A.S.T which stands for cache on a stick and it looks like your one maybe 64KB not sure as I can't quite make out the sticker on it I have a 256KB one laying round here somewhere gathering dust

It's subtle and would fit in with most builds i suppose although i have returned it for a refund as i was losing display and having artifacts with it, i'll be keeping my FTW3 and block.

They are not that hard to find, compared to other really rare stuff, but were only produced for a short time (2009/2010). So you might have to dig a bit, but eventually should be able to find some. These are my Copperhead kits #12, #13, #14 and there are probably no keepers among them either. One of the kits even seems to have been "fixed" / modified by a former owner, since the modules under the heatspreaders are not original and the SPDs have other part numbers programmed.

For memory water cooling the Dominator GT are a decent replacement; unless you want rare memory, then get some CMGTX instead :D
