I think that's an Nvidia card for physx.
He's asking why it's in between the cards when there is still another slot at the bottom of the board...
But, I can answer that...
a duel slot card covers the headers at the bottom of the board. If you need the headers, like he does, you would need a single slotted card.
Don't bother with the Lian-Li test bench. It's very flimsy and doesn't come with the power/reset buttons or usb/audio headers, you must purchase them separately and they aren't cheap.
If you're willing to drop the cash, just get a DangerDen Torture Rack. that's about the best test bench you can buy.
It doesn't raise temps on either 7970 and doesn't draw much power even at full clocks, so why not?
I wouldn't have even bothered with it if it weren't for the extra effects and eye-candy is some of the games I play. Both Batman games, Metro 2033, Borderlands, Sacred 2... without Physx they just don't feel the same.
Actually, it wouldn't bother me in the bottom slot. What would bother me is that the slot the bottom 7970 is in would have its bandwidth halved if the bottom slot is populated.
On the RIVE, the PCIE slots go like this: top slot is x16, second and third slots are electrically the same at x8(one shuts off if the other is populated), fourth and sixth(fifth is x1 2.0) slots are x16/0 or x8/x8.
Having the 250 in between the 7970s allows both 7970s to run x16 and the 250 at x8.
oh, i know all about the LianLi bench..it's dropped from $169 to $75 locally. If it drops below $69, I'm all over it. I'll end up buying a few accessories, know all about the buttons and such.
And I'll get it in red.
LianLi cases aren't what they used to be, in my opinion. Ever since they dropped using screws, and went with pop-rivets, I stopped buying them. Before that, I'd buy nothing else. I AM pretty picky about cases though, and have no issues running multiple systems out in the open in my livingroom..even with my 4 kids. The Antec P280, and two silverstone cases for the kids are the only three cases I've bought and kept in the last 7 years. I bought a Raven, and hated it so much I gave it away, rather than sell it..didn't want to make someone pay for that garbage.
The "pretty" will make the wife happy. I've been commited to buying one of those mITX Bitfenix cases for her for a diablo build, too.
So I've had Prime95 running for about 30 minutes now with the 2700K set to 4GHz with stock voltage and the H100 on the lowest setting. Maximum temp. on any core is 63C. Does that sound good?
Depends. What's stock voltage on that chip?
Also, what version of Prime95 are you running? Do you have both error checking options enabled?
My flagship actual system, for all you guys !
Nice I like to see what others have done with their RV02's it gives me Ideas on what I could possibly do with mine
Been gone for awhile... But how does everyone like these picks? 3XGTX680 SLI water cooled Baby! Gigabyte G.1 Z77 Sniper 3 and new Ivy Bridge! I love it!
How are you liking the XSPC Raystorm block? Was considering buying one...
I love it.... I was a little hesitant considering I used a XSPX Rasa block before.... and I hated it. But I still took the chance with the ray storm..... and it performs way better then the RASA I used at one time, it also performs better then the EK and Swiftech blocks I used at one time too.
Raystorm - 4c vs the Rasa
Raystorm - 2c vs the EK Supreme LTX
Raystorm - 2c vs the Swiftech Apogee
I can't comment on any other versions or brands besides the ones I've tested and used. But from what I have seen it performs well. I don't have any evidence to back that up other than my word. But that is the performance I found from this block.
Love the Switch. Great water cooling case.
some random modifications on my cheap conmpyutorz D:
DeepCool V4000 cooler fitted with an AeroCool Shark fan 120mm cooler (don't mind the dust) >.<
you tie it with cable?
using zip ties would be good
Leak testing ^^
Is that 2% or whole milk?
Got Milk? ^^
I posted a question here:
Hehe I actually used Mayhems Pastel Ice White coolant
Mine right now, motherboard is barely visible lol, pretty standard build at the moment, waiting for the right time to pour some money on water cooling.
Nice build man that video card looks familiar
Hey random, that looks so clean and tidy ey. Luv it.
Damn, that's some kind of clearance between the video card and CPU cooler. Clean build though. I like it a lot.
