This looks like when I had a HAF 932 for my ASUS Rampage II Gene lol
Considering that this rig has seen daily use for about 3 years now it's holding up pretty well.
Although I am using this rig ATM I am moving toward reviving my old Asus Blitz P35 board so I can let my son have his rig back. We share it...but I think it's time for poppa to have his own PC again.
I continue to learn from you by every youtube you post here.
You measure water pressure or temp?
Got a new sound card, had to rid of my X-Fi, as I don't have any more PCIe slots available:
Looks like Creative as learned a little from Apple when it comes to boxing their stuff, this is unlike any other card I've ever unboxed from them:
This is the card installed, and plugged to my speakers:
I love the color contrast:
The card has some nice tricks up its sleeve, and it definitely is a step up from onboard audio, sound is crystal clear, and positioning when using THX TruStudio Pro is breathtaking:
All in all, its a nice little card, I'm still playing with the surround settings Next upgrade, the Recon3D Omega wireless headset
Holy Deus Ex, Batman! That would be awesome.
Is it worth the money ?
I love the look of your HAF-X that is exactly what I'm trying to go for with mine, did you manage to achieve the glowing red with just led fans though or did you have to use any cathodes?
My LAN machine .. . yup I carry that to LAN's about every other week.
You need a Trooper so you have a handle for that metric shit-ton of case Make your LAN lugging easier at least.
Eh it's not too bad, as long as I arrive early before all the seat downstairs are taken lugging it up stairs now .. . that sucks. Also yeah it's super clean I clean it out with an air compressor every other 2-3 weeks, it's a dedicated folding machine.
Thats your Lan Rig holy sh!t [H]@RD5TUFF is bring'in the BEAST
I love this case, it looks like fun build.
Heres Mine Needs A good clean Another 6970 and 2 fullcover blocks but its almost there
You must be a strong bastard
Very nice setup bro
Cyber!! You're still at it! Nice to see.
Depends, if you can get the PCIe version instead, I would say go for it, I still haven't figured how to use the TOSLINK cable included for 5.1 output, dunno if its even possible, but even using the 3.5mm jack gives you a virtual surround environment, even simulating height positioning, seems like Creative has packed some serious horsepower under the hood, but I would prefer the option for real 5.1 output. In my case I have no choice but to go USB
I can tell you sound is much clearer than my on board sound for one thing.
BTW, nice HAF X rig man!
Thanks man! I used the LED fans and a couple cathode lights to get the red glow
Dude, sell one of those 580s and wc the rest.
Can you pls sell me one of your GTX 580's you have too many lol
To be honest with you, I doubt two watercooled cards will give me the same performance as three stock cards, no matter how much I OC them even using WC
You mean like this?
The gauge is really about useless in that range...the PSU tops out at 2.3 or so and the gauge is actually on the wrong side of the flow to get a proper reading. The gauge is only about $15 from McMaster. The real way to get a reading is to have a much smaller tube off a T at the end of the T and position that T so the pump is pounding that little tube like a guy that just got of jail pounds his first piece of freedom tail. Then you'll get a true constant reading of the pump output.
Now that's a thing of beauty!
Bit of internal re-workings in my Antec case.
Hard Drive bay up top with fan on front from 900 Two case holding SSD & 2Tb WD Black.
Gone with External Enclosure for Blu-Ray.
I5-2500K running at a tad under 4Ghz - V10 Cooler.
2 x 3870 X2 Crossfire.
Bit of cable management...............
Nice! I like the black and red theme
