    Eh, I don't need it to be huge, like I said mATX, plus I'm not on a custom water loop anymore, just a 120.1 rad AIO

    Well... Its almost time to power everything off and begin my epic quest into Europe. Gonna miss this sweet ass PC. BF4 on it just runs so uber smoothly. Afterburner shows that with textures back on ultra that it uses just under 3Gigs of ram so its got quite a bit in reserve for future games.

    Honestly though. even when i was running 680SLi on a 1080p monitor, BF4 was never this smooth and looked this good, the 970s just seem to male the extra pixels come to life.

    It is buttery smooth isn't it? Probably a total placebo effect and we're kidding ourselves, but who cares. Shiny. Also at long last I have completed my themed build.

    7000 posts, 90% of which are useless crap I should probably be ashamed of. Probably time to take a break from this place for a while too!

    No, it aint no placebo effect lol. Honest to god i actually notice shit thats happening on the battlefield a lot more. Its almost like i can see more clearly in a way. everything looks so crisp.

    I used to have odd black flickering textures when it came to water and a few other things but all that is gone. There were some maps where my 680s used to tank and even though fps does drop, it wasnt anywhere near as excruciatingly bad as before

    Somebody needs to remind me about the cigars, need to get some of those too. Only thing I'm allowed to smoke since quitting a year back.

    Let me know what brand/spec they are if you choose to sell. I don't come around these parts much any more but I'll try to pop back more regularly.
