    What does everyone use for stress test/benchmarking?

    ***Disclaimer: This might be in the wrong forum, mods feel free to lock/move if need be. I built my first rig about a year and a half ago. Used Prime95, Furmark, SuperPi, and another I cant remember to actually stress the system. I used CPU-Z, Speedfan, Coretemp and GPU-Z to monitor...

    Undecided on Case for SLI SB build

    I have an 800D...if you are going with air cooling then this case isn't for you. Well...unless you want to add about 6 more fans lol. The case comes set up with 3 fans I believe but they are pretty cheap. Don't get me wrong, the case is stinkin beast but if your going air cooled route, there...

    ATI Radeon - Next Hardware Generation?

    Oh yeah definitely! I meant that the wall will be in die sizes rather than clock speeds. We can only go so small before the atoms themselves start compounding on each other and then poof your transistors don't work anymore :P Although there is supposed talk of 3-D transistor layouts! Gets me...

    Is there a "best" case fan out there?

    Simple question, what is the "best" case fan out there? Basically just maximize the airflow without sounding like a jet engine. I will need about 6 120mm fans to go in a case. Thanks in advance

    ATI Radeon - Next Hardware Generation?

    This is exactly right. We will eventually hit a wall that die shrinks will no longer be feasible. Actually just finished a course in VLSI that explains what happens on the atomic level for CPUs/GPUs...kinda sad but we will hit a wall in about 10 years if not less. Then all we can do is start...

    Smaller Mid Tower case suggestion

    Oh man, this is tough, other than the Cooler Masters that Kain posted I can only find a few. The numbers in parenthesis are the heights. Right at 18" Antec 300 In Win Track

    Picking a GPU for my first build

    This is very true. An unlocked/overclocked 6950 2GB will be the best bang for your buck by far.

    Best monitors for nVIDIA surround and 3D?

    Haha i read some reviews (including one over at anandtech) and it looks like the tech is actually maturing really well. I usually don't grab the newest tech until it becomes industry standard but i'm really itching for some 3D surround haha! Edit: Oh and thanks for the link!

    Best monitors for nVIDIA surround and 3D?

    Hey guys, I am looking for a good monitor that can be used for surround and 3D gaming. I've found a couple of monitors that seem to be able to do the trick but I wanna get some input on it. Price isn't a deciding factor (unless it is ridiculously overpriced haha) Here are a few I have...

    Fan controller for 10+ fans???

    Do you know if the LEDs were surface mount or through-holes? It could be as simple as desoldering/soldering new ones in

    1000W PSU for 2600k/580 SLi rig

    Hey everyone, I am finishing up a new build and was wondering if the PSU i have (see link below) will be enough for now and future upgrades. What I have now: ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution Mobo SB 2600k (will be OC'd to...

    New Intel build...580 or 590?

    Yeah the option of a 590 has been dropped. After reading several reviews (including the [H] review on here), it seems the 590 is an unoptimized card that is just out for bragging rights haha. My friend purchased my 580 so now I am just waiting for the 3GB version and I'll be set :)

    New Intel build...580 or 590?

    Yeah I haven't heard too much good news about the 590 either. So I already ordered a 580 ...yesterday. But oddly enough I just had a friend fry his 470 and he is looking for a 580 so I'll probably just sell him mine when it comes in. As far as the 3GB 580 goes are there any other brands...

    Fan controller for 10+ fans???

    Are you talking about this one? My only concern would be if this is a 20 watt total or 20 watt per channel. The fans I will be running are: 6 - 120mm @1900rpm 2 - 140mm @1500rpm and a few more sizes running at various...

    HAF X + 2600K + Triple GTX 580 Water Cooled

    I know the feeling, I've been working on a new rig for almost a month now and it is killing me! Kudos on the sleeeving job, looks super professional. Also, what type of rad setup are you using (push/pull)? Can't tell from the picture but that's what it looks like. Those are pretty good...

    New Intel build...580 or 590?

    Oh trust me, if I had the money to make a surround gaming environment I would. My problem is I have already dumped close to 2500 dollars in computer components for this build (ordered a GTX 580 yesterday). If I am going to go surround, I would like to have high quality screens. It is...

    Fan controller for 10+ fans???

    Is there a fan controller out there that can control up to 12fans? Just an explanation of where I am getting these seemingly ridiculous numbers is below: Push/Pull triple rad setup - 6 fans Pull double rad setup - 2 fans Case intake/exhaust fans - 4 fans An option would be using two...
