More goodies in the mail came in today, the GTX 780 EVGA backplate which fit fine on my 780Ti. I suck at using my camera, photos always seem to come out pink when it's obviously white IRL

Here is my daughters Xmas present,



The PSU is going to get modded to shorten up the cables to help with the mess and maybe some sleeving to add some color if I go through with a windows mod on the Prodigy case. It's a 4770k cooled with a Corsair H100, MSI Z87i, 8gb ddr3-1600 for now, a SanDisk 128gb + 1TB Samsung, and a MSI R9 270.

Got back from the US this morning. Only just escaped from JFK (NYC) before the snowstorm closed the airport! And then the plane was delayed for the HK->Brisbane part for an extra 6hrs, better there than JFK though to avoid the closure. Anyway, because of the decreased value of the Australian dollar against the US dollar I did not end up getting a new graphics card over in the US like I planned. So after getting home I went out and got this baby :) - Gigabyte GTX 780 OC Rev2.0 (2X 8pin PCIe, revised VRMs)

Decided on this over a custom R9 290 because it was on sale for the same price.



What it is replacing - Gigabyte GTX 580 SOC

Found a new MSI Z68A-GD55 (g3) the other week, for a bit more than €40. Seemed worth it, considering my previous motherboard was this. Bad image, but at this time of year there is no such thing as natural light outdoors. It's all darkness, and my phone ... is a midrange phone.



I have never done so before, but now I have an urge to get a new case. Something in which you can place several HDD's. Something you don't have do cut in pieces to do decent cable management. And a PSU with long enough cables to allow for such management. But the case was €15, and it is surprisingly sturdy, and the fans were included, so it's not too bad. And it has one feature I really really like:



See that, case makers of the world? If you feel like you need those covers, make them like this.

Anyway yeah, case, PSU and memory. Memory is on top of that list, and now I can scavange 2 GB sticks as I have four slots now. Keeping it cheap. The current system (one HDD made a horrible crunching noise when I had put everything together, and BIOS did not recognize it so I think it's toast) (including monitor and an actual legal OS) was less than €300. So yeah doing alright.

Ugh, I have some wierd things going on...

I got my FX-8530 in the mail a few days ago(Yay!). It's great, i love how snappy it is, but when i overclock it to 4,4ghz @0,025v offset it runs Prime95 fine for the first 5-15 mins, and then the entire PC jsut freezes. Cursor freezes, everything.

Increasing the voltage yields no result and decreasing makes it run longer(but with the occasional blue screen/stopped worker.) The temps are fine, core temp read 45C at the highest.

I think it's a shame since this is an epic processor and i'd love to have it running at 4.5. what could it be? It runs fine at stock, although overvolting does seem to cause a high-pitched noise when loaded(it did this on the fx-6200 but that worked fine at 4.4ghz)

I think it might be my PSU(a Spire 650w, i have no idea what the model numbers are since the sticker was so hideous i pulled it off.)

Could be your PSU, could be that you don't have decent enough airflow over your VRM heatsink.
You might want to post over in the AMD FX OCer's Clubhouse, they'll be able to help you pinpoint the issue and clock that baby up.

This airflow thing of yours is actually a pretty good one... My Scythe Ashura doesn't leave a lot of air flowing over the VRM's. I'll see if i can strap a fan on them and update ya

you might yes ... a 650w should be able to handle that setup but a Spire "something" 650w might not :roll: get a decent "cheap" 600-650w bronze recognized brand PSU (Silverstone/Seasonic/even Corsair) or a gold i think some cheap one are available from In Win (like my 700w Desert Fox) and Corsair/Be Quiet (RM serie and Power Zone oh wait PZ are bronze but real good)

update : "when you don't have money, you have idea!"
originaly my HAF XB has 2 5.25 and 2 3.5(hotswap) to keep my 2 data 500gb HDD i decided to put the SSD above the ODD and swap the 2 noisy 120mm from CM with 2 NB-blacksilent-Pro PK2 1200rpm 140mm
IMG_20140102_133930.jpg

then i got the idea to get a hotswap bay 2 5.25 for 3 HDD but ... pretty expensive... so then the lightbulb pop'd and i went like that (i didn't want to use the 2.5 rack from CM.) :
IMG_20140109_123023.jpg IMG_20140109_123049.jpg IMG_20140109_123105.jpg
thanks CM the hole under the mobo tray are at the exact width of the 3.5 adapter from OCZ and the 3rd 3.5 HDD is in the direct airflow of the 2 BQ 80mm Shadow Wings 2000rpm
i can still put the ODD but i don't really need it.

after the joy : the sadness, i might also have to sell the 770 but my brother in law offered me, if i sell the 770, to give me a MSI R9-270X Hawk. While it bother me to go down a rank in GPU: IT'S A FREAKING HAWK!
but it's only in the case that i really need to sell it .... i might find another way to sort my problems.

I tried my best... Unfortunately it shuts down even faster now. I might want to get a new power supply...
Flip that small fan the other way. right now you have it setup pulling air away from it when it should be having air blown on the heatsink.

you might yes ... a 650w should be able to handle that setup but a Spire "something" 650w might not :roll: get a decent "cheap" 600-650w bronze recognized brand PSU (Silverstone/Seasonic/even Corsair) or a gold i think some cheap one are available from In Win (like my 700w Desert Fox) and Corsair/Be Quiet (RM serie and Power Zone oh wait PZ are bronze but real good)

update : "when you don't have money, you have idea!"
originaly my HAF XB has 2 5.25 and 2 3.5(hotswap) to keep my 2 data 500gb HDD i decided to put the SSD above the ODD and swap the 2 noisy 120mm from CM with 2 NB-blacksilent-Pro PK2 1200rpm 140mm

then i got the idea to get a hotswap bay 2 5.25 for 3 HDD but ... pretty expensive... so then the lightbulb pop'd and i went like that (i didn't want to use the 2.5 rack from CM.) :

thanks CM the hole under the mobo tray are at the exact width of the 3.5 adapter from OCZ and the 3rd 3.5 HDD is in the direct airflow of the 2 BQ 80mm Shadow Wings 2000rpm
i can still put the ODD but i don't really need it.

after the joy : the sadness, i might also have to sell the 770 but my brother in law offered me, if i sell the 770, to give me a MSI R9-270X Hawk. While it bother me to go down a rank in GPU: IT'S A FREAKING HAWK!
but it's only in the case that i really need to sell it .... i might find another way to sort my problems.
The 7850 at 1100 core is pretty decent for 1080P. I am sure the R9 270X will be adequate if you play at that resolution. I am really happy with my 7850 2GB, which is similar and can reach 1250 with its stock air cooler (too hot above that). Sorry to hear you have to sell off your rig components!
