That sound are looks great man!!
There's an ongoing debate about on board vs discrete sound cards, and this is not the right thread to discuss it but I can tell you the current sound core chip packs four DSP cores, so it it has quite a bit more horse power under the hood than your average C-Media or Realtek audio chips, and this extra power is used for some cool features like vertical positional sound and enhancing compressed audio so it has a wider range, among other nice tricks
There's some other things like better DACs, gold plated connectors, better signal to noise reduction ratio and EMI shielding for higher fidelity sound, in the end it all depends on whether you need those features or not.
I hope you find a discrete sound card that covers all your needs
I know huh... It really is a nice looking little piece of hardware
My new build Corei5 2500k
Hey guys, still a bit of cable management needed, but here she is all in action with the Asus 6950 Direct CUii at 940/1400 shaders unlocked... and the core i5 firstname.lastname@example.org
I painted the inside of the case black with some black hammerite and i'm happy with the looks.
Was a bit of a rush job as i couldn't wait to get the goodies installed.
a bit of feedback would be appreciated
Looks really good the next thing I would do is some more cable management and some cable sleeving w/ Cable extensions.
it's cold in my room brrr
Ok mate what would u suggest i do exactly fella and thanks :0)
I'd flip the rad around so the fittings are on the front of the case. route tubing from pump to rad, to cpu to res to pump. Rotate the block 90 degrees so the tubing is one up and one down.
Buy a fan for the ram, or cobble something together.
Otherwise, I think it looks great.
I hate painting myself, so good job. Red and black is classic.
how low are the temps on that phase you use? The board seems scarcely insulated for what i expect should be less then -25c°!
No idea, CPU's built in temp sensor stops working below -10c and it never goes above -10c when running Intel Burn Test at 5Ghz!
I would say -20c'ish under load and -30c on idle..Maybe even colder...
There's more then enough insulation, If it's applied properly then you don't need loads of it
It's in a ASUS P67 Sabertooth mobo now anyway
Nice overclocker.. refrigerated cpu.. Wow..
my Ice to Warlock's Fire:
Oooohh me do likey alot Time to edit your system specs
So when can I expect it to arrive at my place?
I don't see myself going Down Under anytime soon. Besides, this thing's a bitch to carry up the stairs. I can't imagine carrying it half-way across the globe...
I f'ing hate you lol So jelly
Dammit, even I'm jelly. Nicely done!
T_ski, I wish you didn't post that man.
Now I want water again more than ever but there's no way I can afford it!
Eh, I had all the watercooling parts left over from my last build. Never get rid of the good stuff...
Well I know that now all my WC gear is gone
Silly thing is I spent the proceeds on silly things rather than things I needed so regret it more than normal
Ahh well, when I get another job I'll invest in a nice 420mm rad and some nice pumps and fans : ]
Good job on making me look at my own rig and pull a face like this though
You all have frigin sweet rigs!
I am jelly!
That has to be the cleanest, most beautiful loop I have ever seen.
I love making loops with small tubing runs. It looks SOOOO much better than big loops. The downside, of course, it everything is fairly difficult to move around and pull out of the case.
Thanks for the pics, your build shows your dedication to your craft, I really love how clean it looks, awesome!
