One of the best CPUs of all time
that and the E5200, those were/are damn good oc'ers
And the i7 920.
I think that the Q6600, E8400, and i7 920 stand in the Hall of Fame of Intel CPUs. Maybe one of the E5x00s or 45nm E6x00s as well
was about to say "budget" cpus
but def those too, think its the e6600/e6750
my dad got Q6600 and i got Q6700 not that i wanna out rank him, but he bought his brand new and got a G0 back than, i just bought my Q6700 G0 used and tested and it does 3,6ghz (400x9) all on auto no matter what mb u got for it, or that's what i what i have heard from the previous owner if this cpu that got it from a oc guy.
got this one as a demo/openbox deal, but its never been opened, not even the box it came in lol
Nice warning on the sticker of that GTX470
yup, its a Fermi, what do you expect hahahaha
The Thermi joke has been made sooooo many times, but it's still fun
its a little corny now but i still love a good joke no matter how old it is haha
and im not a fanboy so i wont go to the croner and cry now.........oh wait im already there
It may be fun but these cards kick some serious ass
cant wait to get another one for some powah action, just need a sli board, or can i do sli hack on this one?
Hmm, I am biased towards AMD/ATi, but it's for practical reasons.
Yup, I totally respect the authoritah of these cards. They rock for high-end purposes, but they suck royal dong when it comes to performance/watt, heat production and silence, which are my areas of interest
i was kinda biased when the 58xx series came out, but that was more because of the tremendous performance for the money they offered
but this was a demo deal, so for 275$ compared to 450 for a new, i could really not say no lol
If you are referring to your Maximus II Formula mb - it looks like you will need to use the hack...
I can see where you are coming from, but if you are not worried about performance/watt, heat production and silence...
Then go for it!!!
Or you can water cool the GPU(s) and not worry about the heat and silence
yes its a CF board, but idk if i can do that SLi thingie on it lol
oh well, ill head over to the sli section
nice score Don nothing like a cheap Fermonuclear graphics card to pump up the power bill
Fermonuclear Graphics Device I lol'ed again!
we want some scores and temps when it's up and runnin though
cant really do anything good yet
a: i need a good cooler to oc my Q9550
b: i need a case to get a decent airflow around the stuff
c: im waiting on a nice CM 1KW PSu from KieX to arrive, since i dont trust my 500W cheiftec to run safely when i start oc'ing both cpu and gfx
No rush dude just when you can get to it
I quite like the looks of that card plain and simple no hideous stickers on the cowling
might actually remove that GainWard sticker, to keep it all black lol
then be careful, a removed sticker, can ruin your RMA right for it, if there is still one
