Whether or not it is a good case doesn't even matter for thirty bucks
heck yea it is! cant wait to get it
Here's my finished i7 build
Looks good kiex!
how long before those casters break i wonder? My brothers HAF 932 casters lasted about 5 minutes...
heh the gfx card gets bent from the weight of the AC Xtreme
Been going well for me for just over a month of constant trolleying around.. I do hope they stay that way though. Won't be moving now for a while.
It was the single most difficult thing I've ever bothered putting on a computer. The heatsinks kept falling off all the time and I had to constantly open up and re-fit. Seems to be going fine now that they've been heated up with some F@H. Worth the trouble though knocks 50C off stock heatsink temps.. and it's silent!
I'll be rocking the little 2400 Pro for a while until I can find a good deal on a 5850.
how much did you sell the 4870 for?
Bought it in June last year for $209 ($189 really because I got the egg to refund me $20 for a price drop) and sold it for $130. I figured it would be wise to go ahead and get rid of it before the next gen hits and I wouldn't be able to get $100 for it.
i linked you in your WTB thread to a ref 5850, did you see it?
BTW here it is again if you didnt see it! also he dropped the price!
HIS Reference 5850
Yeah man I saw it but that's a little more than what I'm wanting to pay for a used regular one. I mean I could get this one with what looks like a really good cooler for $35 more brand new.
Is it better to get a reference or non-reference model? I know the non-ref. coolers can be better but don't you lose some features?
i had that one, and if you wanna play with overclocking then its a no-go, you can NOT raise the voltage on it
but if you're not into that then go for it, its silent
I would go with the reference card if you plan on OCing it but if not the get the newegg card for the warranty
I would only do some small-time OC'ing through CCC with it. I think I'd take silence over a big OC any day. If I can't find a used one and they don't do any price changes on the egg I think I'll get that one.
Psh, I'm closing in on 1000.
What card is that? A 4870x2?
If so, I'm still trying to find one without forking over 80 bucks or so. Everyone that has them cheap is oos. Go figure.
Wow, i actually ordered the same heatsink and the same fan to go with it about two days ago.
Looks like a very nice build.
What do you guys think of this 5830? It's got the nice dual-fan cooler and the price seems pretty good.
GIGABYTE GV-R583UD-1GD Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit ...
here is W1zzard's Review on MSI's 5830
From what I've seen.. their not worth it if you can hold off to get a 5850..
It seems that although it's a good bit better than my old 4870, a 5850 would give you a lot more bang for the buck. I guess I'll keep looking for a 5850 then.
Been there, done that I meant that I was the first poster on page 200 for this thread.
EDIT: Oh, forgot I have it set to 50 posts per page OK, so first on page 399 at default setting
So I'm not going to be able to get performance info or even a SS of the quad-quad core Xeon system, apparently Intel wanted it back last November, so he hasn't had it since December
Mine atm. need to do a new paint and cablejob
the cable management isn't that bad....nice lil' setup you have there.
no where to really hide the cables, yet it looks soooo neat, great job there dude
