Muahahah. It's pick on CS day!!!
Incoming pictures of SJ's Super Amazing 2012 Pre-Used Overkill Upgrade. ETA: 12 hours
For some odd reason when you said that this came to mind
Would you mind coming over later? We could install that one thing we were talking about yesterday and take some pics with your badass camera. The most recent pics I have of my PC are from over a month ago when the first 7970 showed up...
Yeah, I'll be over. Tell momma to add another plate.
Can I come too?
depends, what hardware do you have to lend?
Got delayed a little bit since the Vertex 4 I was going to use basically died after updating the firmware, so I'm still using the old SATA II SSD. But anyways, here she is!
Sorry for the strange lighting. I'll try to take some daytime shots in a few weeks when the replacement SSD comes.
I decided to try out a top-down cooling method with the H100. Figured it would work better if it's pulling fresh air from the outside rather than warmed air from inside the case. A quick look shows 28C stock idle, so it seems to be working.
Also, OH MY GOD the pump is annoying. It sounds just like a dying hard drive with the scratching.
^^^ a hell of a lot cleaner cable management than mine... just cleaner overall, guess it's time to grab the air duster!
That's odd... I have an H100 and I cant hear the pump at all.
Nice setup liking the white case.
Ummm ... my old pentium 4 based Dell. LOL
The H60/80/100 suffer from bearing issues. Corsair just recently owned the fact that there is a problem and will be releasing information soon on how to RMA. My H60 is loud as all get out (slowing the pump and tapping the unit silences it until its rebooted), and upon closer inspection my H100 has a slight 'seeking' noise (probably not worth the hassle of RMAing it- but who knows).
Ah shit, what great luck I have. I'll worry about that later. Gotta deal with this OCZ RMA for now.
thats why i dont want to go water, because of noisy components like that.
also, goddamnit OCZ. 3 out of 4 dead SSD's i hear of are OCZ, and i liked the brand until mine died
The red SATA cables do a nice job of pulling everything together in a common theme. Too bad Corsair leaves the stub ends of the ugly yellow PSU cables bare.
New cruncher setup yesterday
That's a nice test bench! Do like.
I wonder where you got that cpu/board/ram from
LOL I wonder as well
4Ghz stable, has 1 1/2 days on it at full load crunching under 58 degree's
Yes sir. I was thinking about somehow wrapping the base of all of the cables there in something black, or painting them, but I didn't know how to go about it. If we can figure it out then I might attack that when I have to dig into it again for the SSD/H100.
Heatshrink them. Pull the pins out one at a time, put on the heatshrink, shrink it and put the pin back in.
Thanks! Installing the rig into a real case now for real review testing, next board will go on the test bench. Gotta check temps and such when in a case for every review, but the testbench sure makes checking votlages and suc hfar easier...sits at just the right height, too.
I kinda wish ai had a real testbench though...wanna get one of the LianLi test benches...they are pretty cheap right now, but since i ahve no real NEED for one, I'l lwait until I get some extra cash before making that change.
Just installed a 7850 I got from life from mars, no pictures yet but I'm having a lot of fun.
1.3ghz/1450mhz thing bloody flies at this speed.
Is that an ancient artifact squeezed between the Xfire? I didn't even know they still existed On a serious note why keep it there? I feel does more harm than good.
