Looks like the 290 was a tight fit, nice rig.
is it me or is that way too much paste?
nice compact build ya got tho!
I'm surprised it took that long for someone to comment. Think I swiped some off with a q-tip before mounting, but not my best TIM application.
Their directions said to make a star pattern, which would have been way overkill I think.
tbh if both surfaces are perfectly flat then the dot method is more than enough!
most gpus mount with a reasonable amount of force, plenty enough to squeeze it around!
'tis alive and kicking. Tops out with prime95 at about 60ish C.
I'll probably take a look and redo it when I get the back plate.
I used the EK supplied stuff, which was kind of runny. Might try some AS5 next.
At this time and in progress !
ooh yes 4.8 at ~1.3v and 4.5 @ 1.22v on air love this new chip. I need to get better cooling...
Heh I got rid of the ram overclock/overvolt and now I can run like 4.5 @ 1.176v muahaha!
(simpleTECH's old chip )
Sexy new Noctua from sneekypeet
Now all i need is another noise blocker multiframe for the front fan and some rubber screws
Shipped! Can't wait to test out how far the 780ti can go under water.. although my ASIC quality is only 75%
That's 6 TB + 120Gb SSD and there is room for more
Just rebuilt this and attempted to keep wires out of the way of air flow. Unfortunately the motherboard has the power connector in the worst possible location.
Still will work fine for a gmod server.
Not my desktop here but I am using a laptop ATM Bought this while I am on holiday in WDC from Best buy SOOOOO CHEAP compared with Australia. I helped boost the American economy I bought the "active" pen for it too - N-trig duosense 2.
VAIO Fit | Flip 15 (and yes it is a convertible with dedicated graphics)
keep finding cases lately........ look what $35 got me..
A Bitfenix Merc Alpha
..and a Shinobi.....
...now....time to fill'em..........
...is that a rock.... sitting in a chair .......watching tv in the back round?
Hahaha I have no idea, we were using it to glue the wood board to the gasket material before screwing and gluing it to the roof of the case. My friend called me over for the second time in 11 months asking me to fix his computer because he spilled water into the top holes.
Picked up this thing off Freecycle today. Came with the proper 90W power cord and a port replicator. Even though it's the nVidia version it was free so I won't complain and it works.
2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo T8100 (Upgraded, had a T7100 when I got it)
1.5 GB DDR2 ram
80 GB 5.4k Hitatchi HDD
nVidia NVS 135M Graphics that still works
And the gunk I pulled from between the fan and heatsink. This was causing it to run insanely hot as it had almost no airflow.
Is that moss and a damn leaf in that pile?
Wow a Latitude, I haven't seen one of those in a good 5 years. 100L was the model I worked on (had to repair dozens of them). Now I know your password I'm gonna start hackering your emailz and steal your wife on fassbook.
Not quite sure, but I can tell you it has a lot of pet fur and a lot of dark dust caked in, almost looks like cigarette soot however it cleaned a lot easier than the last couple systems I got from smokers (Radeon HD 4850s are the worst to clean from smokers).
That was the password on it when I got it; not sure why people bother having a password if they're going to put it on the palm rest. I wiped and reinstalled everything
I've also worked on 100Ls before and they ran horribly hot (desktop processor I believe), were heavy and had not-so-great battery life (Let's just say my 1998 Thinkpad had a better battery). 1/10 would not recommend.
Quick shot of my new waterloop setup - my GTX 780ti is clocked at 1120 core and reaches 1250 boost, temps haven't gone past 53 degrees after half an hour of Metro Last Light with Vsync off. Much better than the 84 degrees I was seeing at 1050 overclock and 1170 boost not to mention the noise difference. Twas a fun but irritating loop to setup thanks to the reservoir being a bitch to mount.
I have a 2007 D530 I use that works excellent still, was a dell refurb from 2008, has a Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz I think, 4 gb ram (upgraded) and 500 gb hd (upgraded). Laptop has quite a bit of character from physical damage (falling off desk etc). I have a new plastic back panel I've been meaning to install on it but keep procrastinating, too many other projects.
Clean, I love it.
