Got a new vid card today at work
I shoud probably show the rest of the system specs too. 48GB of RAM, dual I7 Xeon cpus, 512 Samsung 840 pro and now the Quadro K6000.
Its a baller workstation.
I7 Xeon mhhh... WAIT.... WHAT?
oh i just realized that i can consider my last build as a workstation ... Xeon E3 on a pure intel mobo ok Q77 chip and not C216 no ECC RAM but still ... wait ... R9-270 where did i put my old Firepro V7900 ... DAMN
edit: now that i remember a E3-1275v2 is a i7-3770 core ... i might understand the I7 Xeon thingie ...
edit teaming enabled ... not that 2gbp/s link is usefull with my connection but ... i hate having 2 gb lan port and only one used ...
Which Xeon's you got?
When I read that, I thought "Oh Lord, Sweet Jesus it's a fire!"
ain't nobody got time for that
I didn't grab no shoes, no nothing Jesus. I ran!
What are the specs?
I've updated my sig.
Here's mine atm. Really digging my Sapphire 290 tri-X. I'll never go back to blower type coolers for my video card ever.
So nice, you posted it twice?
Sorry for double posting. Something was wrong with TPU awhile ago. I clicked on the post reply button then the site became unresponsive. Already deleted previous post. Sorry about that.
I had the same issue and thought it was my PC (too many Windows updates pending or something).
Your VID may be only 1.26 V but your VCORE is constantly around 1.39 V at load
you mod that yourself?
Well it's a hobby. I wanted to create something unique and modern. It's still a work in progress though.
They are the early W5580's:
I am aware, I set it to 1.4v no offset and didn't bother to really dial it in. I am using a small air cooler so its not going to get anywhere near that vid, too hot. Maybe if I had a cooler setup might get closer to it. My old 3770k had a vid of 1.26 for only 4.0ghz...
Not bad. I have a couple of these in one of my rigs:
Something else on the way, too
wonderful wake up i power on the pc i hear a little click and two long beep, which mean no graphic adaptor,
i open the box nothing unusual no weird smell, i decide to test the R9 on the other rig no image, no component fried nothing burnt, and it was at stock clock...
GREAT i am back on my 460 HAWK... RMA incoming, tho i wonder what went wrong, i guess i should just call me lucky, that it was not the mobo who took a crap but the gpu ... the mobo has no warranty the gpu yes.
now finger crossing that it was really a factory fault, just the card went off, no power-surge.
i received the Scythe Grand Kama Cross but since the gpu is out of order i keep the stock intel and i put the kama in the server (also the kama would be too big for the DQ77MK since the PciE is on the 1st slot)
my server ATM ...
still need to work on it, find a suitable PSU so i can take out the In Win, add some ECC RAM, find a 2nd Kama, and get the 2 Opteron 250 delivered
Griever, sorry to hear your pc woes continue...
thanks, luckily the card is 6 day old and i doubt Techmania will answer me negatively, it seems most likely to be a factory fault and a component pop'd, tho i can't see which one... the card still look pristine.
btw its Greiver, i am not grieving!
edit: contacted my Etailer and they ask me to contact MSI first for a confirmation that can be a factory fault, so they can send it for RMA without additional cost... duh ... they even asked me if i was sure that was the card ... and my original mail contained every explanation and clarification i could give
at last MSI are fast to answer back
We are sorry to hear this.
We assume the card needs to be serviced.
As we do not repair for end user directly, please return it via the dealer
Thank you Nicolas"
obviously i know they don't do end user repair ... and i explained nothing more than what i have already did in the mail to my etailer
