So I'm putting together my new build consisting of a 3930K, goal is to OC to around 4500. I have two options on the radiators. First is using two seperate 120 swiftech rads in one loop with a 355 pump. The second is a 120.3 using a 655 pump. I would perfer to use the two 120 rads as it would...
With all the people selling off their GTX 480s last month in a panic, I was able to snag a Evga GTX 480sc along with another DD waterblock. This bad boy was added to my exisiting 2X Evga 480sc Sli setup.
Tri-Sli is bliss on my Dell U3011, and gaming at 2560X1600 is a sight to see. My initial...
No gouging as of yet.
The wife just picked up Ghostbusters for the PC at Target. They have it clearanced at $9.88, YMMV. Have not opened it yet though.
Is it ever worth it with all the issues it has, or should I take it back. Or give it hell for $10?
Went ahead and sold my 4870 X2 and just ordered two BFG GTX 285 OC+ cards. The X2 is a good card, but just didn't seem like gaming was going as good as it could. I'm sure I'll see a performance boost with these 285s.
Glad to be back at the NV camp and a member of Club Sli again.
Just left Fry's in Dallas (8pm) and they had 4 BFG GTX 295 cards on the shelf. Price is $529.99, item # 5811903. Did take note on how heavy it was, even compared to the X2 sitting next to it.
Was tempted to get one, but couldn't justify it with my watercooled X2 working perfectly.
I just got 2GB of the 9136 to go with my Striker Extreme and having problems getting to it's rated speed of 1142.
I set SLi enabled to Expert and manually set the timings and speed to 5-5-5-15 @2.1 & 1142, but actual in bios show mem spd at 1066. Then in windows, cpu-z shows mem spd at...
I have the 6400C4, which is 4-4-4-12 at 2.1v and I want to use it in the Asus M2N-E, but in the bios the highest vcore allowed is 1.9.
So can I run my 6400C4 run at 5-5-5-12 at 1.9v then? Or does this memory need to be at 2.1v no matter what timings.
Well, I finally was able to get my WC install going this week. After much help from this forum and alot of research online, I went with individual parts versus a kit. Reason being was for the same $$ as the H20-120, my parts are almost identical to the H20-220.
My parts are:
DD D5 pump...
Put a 80mm blow hole in case. Was pretty easy with the right tools. I used a 3 inch hole saw blade and masking tape is a must. I was going to use a dremel but very glad I didn't. The cutting took about 20 secs and then did a little sanding to smooth the edges. The masking tape prevented any...
Just got the DD BIX 2 with the 1/2 fittings and 1/2 barbs. Problem is that the barbs are EXTREMELY tight to screw in. I cannot use just my fingers as it goes one with 1 full turn and then stops. I would have to use a wrench with some very hard turns to get it in.
Is this normal???
I am looking for some thoughts on the ideal placement of my reservoir. I have the Swiftech micro and can place it in a few different spots.
1- In the upper middle part of case right below and to the right of the power supply
2- in middle right of case, more right then the above but lower...
