Nice DD. Thats a pretty sweet looking rig!
I have those mems and that board, nice combo, those two.
Those are 6-8-6-24 sticks? If so, you should try 2133 MHz 9-10-9-28 @ 1.5v...
looks very nice, we have the same waterblock. got to say i love it, works well on my 2600k.
Very clean. The tubes on the right definitely better way to go.
Oh, and the white tubing in the storm trooper is very cool.
Looks good but how are they when it comes to performance and noise?
Here's mine for a minute.... Should have the other one sorted within a few weeks, maybe less
me liky the Tower 21!
I wish it was bigger if I'm honest!! :lol:
I cant wait to get the other one setup and finished That I hope will fit on the other side of the desk...... At least I hope it does!! :lol:
oh yeah im jelly on your delly's
3 30" Dells Models are 3008WFP, middle one is revision A02 and the end two are A06. I love them But its a bit weird looking at 90" of screen so close... I think I'm going to have to get some USB extension cables to connect up to the mouse and keyboard so I can play near the wall when my house mate moves out!
I can even put up the surround sound then as well
can i replace your house mate please?
Well she'll be moving whenever she can find a place It might cost a bit to get to work and back for you tho!! :lol:
On the plus side though, I do have a home network with 16 ports to fill
live in brighton but work in london. Im use to travelling, if they didnt invent rumble strips i wouldnt be here talking to you
Well I think I'm about an hour and a half from Brighton and a bit more from London!! :lol:
They are very quiet actually but they do not push much air at stock speeds, So i modded them be retching the sensor so they run at full speed all the time and they are quiet.
My god man! What exactly is your graphics config and what frame rates do you get?
Well I bought these mate
I've only got two of them in there at the moment but with the highest screen settings and all of the eye candy turned up, I'm hitting at least 60FPS but that's at 7680 x 1600 with Ultra settings and 8 x QSCAA or whatever its call turned on.
I havent overclocked either card yet, so there's still more to give I believe. I'm running for a CPU an i7 920 @ 4.42Ghz which is my 24.7 speed. I havent bothered trying for higher speeds yet as this is just right and I honestly cant be bothered with messing about with re-starts and crashes!!
This is the slowest PC... My other build is a 762 and that'll have at least 3 GPU's in it but then I am unsure just what next year will bring as I will be upgrading then I think
60FPS at that res is fantastic!
I wouldn't bother overclocking. My experience is rather limited but I'm not sure it matters as much in mult-card setups. More interesting to put the 3rd card in and see what happens. But then it's not my power bill.
Well that was just with Dirt 2, I havent tried other games like Left 4 Dead (1 or 2) yet or any of the others I have bought recently. I've got to try and get GTA 4 installed because I've still not opened it up and I had that about a year ago!! :lol:
Well to be honest, overclocking the CPU seemed to make more of a difference than anything else but that said I think 4.4Ghz for an i7 isnt bad at all I did think about going for a SB setup but then they dont have full 16x lanes like this does and so seemed a bit of a waste since I've had these two i7 rigs for nearly two years now and I've hardly used them!!
I am very much interested in seeing the third card go in, so as soon as the few bits I have on order come through, I'll be getting that running and seeing just how fast that 920 D0 can go
Saying that, my electric usage which this system isnt too bad considering all the crap stuffed in this case! :lol:
With 2 server SAS drives, 2 Velcoraptors (150Gb) a 1.5Tb Sammy for saves and whatever else along with 8 38mm thick Scythe Kraze 3000 fans on each of the quad rads and another 6 Yate Loon 88CFM fans cooling the motherboard loop and Adaptec 5405 and fan controller and the pumps etc, I think so far at most the rig as pulled 815W from the socket... I have no idea what that means the actual rig is using but who cares??
My electric bill a month is working out to less than £25 a month and whilst I'm guessing it gonna go up eventually, I'm really not bothered!!
I wouldn't bother going to SB just yet if you've got a bloomfield at 4.4GHz.
Let us know when you get the 3rd card going.
Congrats on a monster system!
Well when I have my other EVGA Classified 762 working with the water cooling loop, I'll be throwing the three of them in
This EVGA Classified 759 will hold two of them but the 762 will hold possibly three or four of them because I want it to be the dogs nuts when it runs games across the screens. I don't want slow downs or issues
The only uprade I'm looking at is the 8 core 16 thread CPU's that might be out next year.. Then it'll be a case of if it can hit 5Ghz then I might consider it
Thank you for the kind words I'm getting to grips with taking video footage of games or replys, so if there's anyway I can put some videos up to show please let me know
Also any games anyone has an interest in please say and I'll do my best to get them installed
here is mine as I was cutting up the case to make the radiator work.
Guess thats the compromise of performance for looks. Are they PWM?
