I have two overclocked 7970s on a 1680x1050 monitor. Tell me that's not overkill.
for now, can't afford one of those Catleap monitors
What screen size you aiming to get Random Murderer??
Love it. wish i could cable the way you do
Okay it is Can't wait for my 2nd 7970 next month then hoping to get 3x24"
Just moved to my new apartment.
Got some new toys to begin upgrading my watercooling setup
added new res with the pump insert for my swiftech mcp655, feser one fluid, new ek block(which i think is worse than my d-tek fuzion v2.0), all in all a little cleaner.
New i7 from Buck Nasty:
I remember that board... I do miss it too!
Did you sell it to him?
So far I'm happy with it, I like the on-board power & reset switches, and the three double-spaced PCIe x16 slots would be great for multi-GPU FAH.
Yes, The bios corrupted on it while a friend was using it and he ordered a EVGA P55 LE (crappy board) so he had this one was gonna throw it away so I posted it up on TPU and buck picked it up cause he had the same board that had died he could use the bios in and it worked like a charm for him.
looks like you need a handful of cable ties in there Ion
The 27" 2560x1440 IPS panel. Maybe three, haven't decided if I want to bother with Eyefinity or not.
I would have picked one(or three) up already, but recent circumstances have caused me to have to stop spending money on computer parts for a bit
I think we're both on the same page though, buy the expensive hardware you want when you can afford it so you're future-proofed for a bit. In our cases it was blow that money on high-end GPUs so we can drive the high-res monitors we don't have yet
Nice Saitek Eclipse special edition Red backlit. I've owned three, love that keyboard!
I have a couple twisty-ties that I'll use later, there isn't much that can be done here (no spots to hold cables, and some of them are stretched out as far as they can go). I'll post more pictures when I get something organized
Ion, if you ever decide to sell that Asrock P55, I would love to have it back in my collection
In the event that I decide to upgrade, I imagine that I'll want to keep it as a WCG cruncher, but I'll let you know
Man I want that board so bad
Testing the board for review?
also, how goes the oc on the Dominator Platinums?
Yep. Had already tested, but thought a new OS and a re-test was in order yesterday, plus, need to test with the new VGA, too, as I don't quite have enough results yet to make the transition. Currently writing the review, should be live in a few days(it'll be done today, and I'm behind a few days). Had some good BF3 rounds with the guys last night while testing!
As to the Dominators, OC with them is BCLK mostly, so I'm trying to find the best board to use. That said, i can run 2666 with all four sticks with no voltage changes at all to VCCSA or VTT, so my CPU definitely is not going to be an issue. Still got a few weeks of testing though.
The two items paired up with the Windforce 7950 make for a nice thematic silver/Blue rig, even with using the stock cooler! Corsair should be sending me another H100 soon, I cannot wait!
Aren't they rated for 2666? C'mon Dave, we wanna see BIG numbers! Shoot for 3000!
Of course, you're busy with actual work, so don't think I'm pushing you. I would just like to know what four sticks are capable of before dropping $400+ on RAM. Guess I'll just have to wait a few weeks for the review to go live...
3000+ takes LN2 or such on CPU. You'll find many "pro clockers" saying that even 2600 Mhz is hard for some CPUs, so 2666 is pretty good without voltage changes. There's more to this ram than just that, but I'm saving that for the review!
Are they expensive? YES! is the cost justified? YES!
I knew 3000 was out of the question, hence the
Still, 2666 without voltage adjustment should give you a bit of headroom. I wouldn't be surprised if you managed 2750-2800 out of them.
And yes, they are expensive, but as you said, the cost is justified. If nothing else, they have a lower CAS than the equivalent(speed-wise) G.Skill or Team Group kit at the same voltage, and(IMO at least) they're a hell of a lot sexier.
That is some damn fancy ram!
