    Recently was given an old Dell that had a Q6600 GO and decided to build a cruncher from parts I had. The old test bench has been stashed away for a couple years and needed to have the dust blown off:)

    I want to thank @newtekie1 for the EVGA 750i SLI FTW motherboard I bought from him. It is like brand new!!!
    The Noctua NH-D14 is battle and bruised as it has been on many different build since I bought it in 2009. I am really glad that the mounting gear I used for the LGA 1366 platform is the same as the LGA 775:toast:
    Well time to get her overclocked and then crunching:)

    Looks like 3.4 GHz is where this CPU will end up. Not bad:)

    Just bought this the Shoe Box.
    IMG_0808.JPG
    Finally got proper storage for it, rather than the 16GB USB stick it's been running off. Power supply and HDD and it will be finished for now. And then on to next one. Got the idea that I might get this one. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Q1900DC-ITX/

    Going to order a Carbide 300r, i think. My Antec One is too small for the cooler inside... Also, 79 degrees on an AMD FX-8350 is what it took for me to realize HPC was on. Poor thing. Oh well, might go water sometime.

    PS: Updated to windows 8.1 on all my machines. LOADS faster on the i3(which is why i decided to install it here too), LOADS slower on this. Hm. Might wanna muck around with it some more.

    Got a 7970 from a guy on here, does around 1250-1300/1850+ on air. Also flashed it to a R9 280x, not as performing and gets hotter than before. May go solder the LN2 pads and see what it can really do! (edit: reverted bios)

    indeed it seems to miss something as Jester wrote, so what's the perf (bench raw fps and such) or do you get the fabled Black Screen issue? :D

    Yeah, I tried 280X BIOS on my MATRIX, was good for some extra benchmark point, but led to more frustration. stock BIOS FTW.

    I use the Alumic for work. This damn thing is impossible to break and has lasted far too many years! Left it on the black side though, not a fan of the picture on the blue side.

    Should I PM you my address??? :D

    Got myself an M7G and a 4790K to replace the dead mobo and processor. I wanted to wait for your review of the M7G before I bought it but I need a PC for work so I just went ahead and pulled the trigger :D.

    Can't wait for your review of that Impact. I'm tempted to build a mini-ITX build everytime I see those boards from MSI and ASUS.

    indestructible that seems to be a good word for it... isn't it? i mean ... wow thick alu plate ... i searched at the store thru the mouse pad and i found firstly the Vespula from Razer .... it was 10chf more than the Roccat (49.95chf) and then i found that Alumic alone behind a bunch of Siru and Raivo .... gosh the package was heavier than the Vespula and the alu core is way thicker and give a better feeling ... plus on touch the wrist rest is way more comfy than the Razer's one... 10chf less and feels better overall ... pretty much the feeling i got from all Razer product i replaced recently (mostly due to failure and hiccups from them)
    Naga <=> G600
    Mamba<=>G602
    Destructor<=>Alumic
    Lycosa<=>Aivia K8100V2
    Orochi<=>M705 Marathon
    only the Electra (headset) hold quite well ... :roll:

    next month: white case (probably a C70 Arctic white) R.O.G Frontbase (maybe sooner for that one if i get some deal) another 8gb stick (probably a Fury red to go with the ROG thematic )
    and i am also waiting (this week i hope) on some retro hardware delivery for my other retrobuilds upgrades (eh? it's not because they are old that we cannot upgrade them :D)

    at last i know that tomorrow i will receive this baby at home :)
    741236620_3_Big.jpg
    i am pretty happy about it and also about the price, thanks to my retailer promo on the 4690K and ASUS because they did a pretty ROG board at a affordable price

    oh yeah and the ICING ON THE CAKE will be the wallpaper i requested from @Rezasam1 oh boy even if i am not on a hurry i am pretty excited to see what he will come with once done :D

    Good thing you didn't wait, because I don't have one for review! :p


    Should be great though, just be sure to take the time to tune your OC manually, and it'll take a tonne of abuse.:rockout:
