Im thinking of a NZXT Source 210 Elite with a side panel mod?
Take a look at luciel's side panel mod in the project logs thread.... he did a nice job on that one
It's a shame such nice platform is letdown because the fastest CPU you can use is FX-8150.
decent enough for me, have yet to have a BSOD/problem on it, then again im only on an i3 2100 so i can't OC, will slap an unlocked IB when it gets out or at least a 2500K.
As expected for an matx board, it gets crowded, but i would have hoped it had a little more space between the PCI-E slot and the CPU socket
Just wondering, why are there two crossfire bridges on those cards?
I've always used two on mine when they were single-GPU cards...
Does it make any difference when using two bridges over one?
Not really. AMD used to say "one bridge per card", but there doesn't seem to be a problem with using just one. There have been reports of using two fixing some flickering issues for some users, but that could ahve also been because the other bridge was bad? Not sure.
Garrgoyle@ Hell of a beast system !
why oh why a stock cooller?
My home office setup:
(40" Toshiba LED with WiFi)
nice bong Surveillance Camera setup is nice too.
+1 Noticed that first off as well The rig aint bad either
Heh, thanks guys. You noticed the most important part right off!
+2 I noticed it right off. Hmmm this might not fair well for us. Nice system, big led display and all, and the first thing we notice is a bong in the corner.
I'm sorry I missed this coment earlier.
I'll be 100% honest...for me, personally, CPU doesn't matter much. It only matters to me, becuase the memory controller is part of it.
As I have been repeating over the years, for multi-GPU configs, sometimes memory performance is the key limiting factor. Of course, this is app-dependant, but some of my favorite games are of that ilk, and need high memory bandwidth to get the most out of the VGAs. I play racing games a lot(well, I used to before my shoulder injury), wioth Codemasters titles beign some of my favorites, and of course, they need lots of memory bandwidth.
X79, overall has much higher bandwidth than P67/Z68. Somewhere between those two paltforms, Codemasters titles finally do not benefit from more memory speed. 2133 Mhz on 1155 isn't quite enough, but 1600 MHz on 2011 very nearly is.
The FX-8150, at stock, doesn't compare to 1155. but perhaps overclocked, i can get comparable performance. I guess I'm gonna get an 8150 real soon here, so I'll be able to test all that for myself.
i see the power supply is not the best too
post deleted because I do not *******************. peroid.
I doubt that a stock cooler is better then the H70, no matter what airflow u got..
you can also just turn around the fan, let it blow out?
especially when ur overclocking... that shit stock cooler wont make it
you can be glad that erocker isnt here atm, when i posted rig pics which also showed my bong, he drastically removed them.
Yeah Nice Piece bro LOL 2 footer?
Anyway Nice setup and I love the gaming area!
you didn't read my posrt, bro
btw, troll, I reported yer apsm action! so there :thumbs up:
Well, I wasn't trying to offend anyone and if someone has a problem, please send me a pm and I'll be happy to remove it and take a new pic. I have a rather large size dog and keep it on my desk right where its sitting when I'm not using it so its not anywhere it can be knocked over. A nice blown glass piece is rather expensive.
Thanks very much
Don't sweat it bro. He's probably jealous of your sweet SLI setup!
