    I'd say mark it up reasonably and send it to them anyway. See if they execute it. Worst thing that can happen is they don't.

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    Wrong again. Seems to be crossing the line of intentional trolling. You can very clearly see that I stated the GTX was 20 and was reduced to 16, as well as the GTS being 32 and being reduced to 16. You literally have no argument. Anyone who did real performance testing found that the GTS...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    Nice super fail. I was responding to your complete wrong information that the GTX was 16FPI all along. It was 20FPI previously and has been reduced to 16 along with the GTS. You have nothing. Literally nothing. You're so blatantly wrong that you're grasping at straws making up crap... AGAIN.

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    Actually, NOWHERE did I assert that it was the highest performing overall radiator. The only assertion I made was fin density in the same formfactor was reduced. Which would directly affect performance if you use sufficient fans. Sorry, you're arguing with someone who clearly knows more...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    This argument is totally bogus. Anyone who cares about idle temps at low rpm has no idea what they're doing. You can idle at 50c and it will be no detriment to your processor. It's at high load when you're running 100% on 16 threads and you want to stay below 70c that watercooling matters...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    Did you even actually read my post? SR2 is low FPI, GTS used to be high FPI, and GTS is now mid FPI. None of what you said makes any sense at all in context of the discussion. It looks more like you just wanted to talk about your setup in someone's post regardless of the topic. Thanks for...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    The old GTX was 20FPI also. The new is 16. The GTS was 32, and now is 16. The SR series was 9, and remains 9. The point of all of this is the fin design did not change, and the overall cooling capacity has been reduced vs the last generation. The product line has collapsed and is no longer...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    thanks for the rec. I'll look into it. The HWLabs GTS radiators were *always* the highest density offering they had. The SR series was always the low density offering. The problem is that the GTS series was always their high density offering. Now it's not. GTS were always for high fan...

    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    I made the mistake of buying a few 120 GTS and 240 GTS nemesis radiators without closely comparing them to the older variants. Here's a summary of why they're total crap compared to the older ones. 1. Reduced performance compared to classic GT Stealth due to reduced fin density. GTS Nemesis...

    Anyone have a WD Passport X 2TB?

    Was wondering if anyone had tested this drive with CDM and the like? I found thread on reddit that showed it was significantly faster than a WD Passport Ultra 2TB. Also, the X has a black sticker on the box, unlike the green sticker on the Ultra. So it should be a very high quality drive...

    970/980 Custom bios flashing now working!!!

    If you want to enforce a minimum voltage at P00 state you increase the '600' to whatever the value you want as the minimum. This will cause an increase in power consumption. Alternatively you can increase the minimum voltage state at each CLK within the voltage table to whatever your card...

    970/980 Custom bios flashing now working!!!

    Hey guys, You'll want to use either the AIR or H2O BIOSes going forward. AIR sets the same 1480MHz clock that GameStable set previously, and H2O sets 1531MHz, two bins higher than NOLIMITS. Both use 1.312v for the maximum boost state. Boosting behavior should also be significantly better...

    Key words: "don't correctly support" Yeah, the MINIMUM uncore ratio is 1.5x memory speed for Gulftown/Westmere, but you can run it faster. Your board was designed for 45nm cpus which has a minimum uncore ratio requirement of 2x memory speed. See if lowering your memory from 1000MHz to 800...

    If you're on the latest bios you're SOL. This is part of what I was talking about when I said that older x58 motherboards don't correctly support the Gulftown/Westmere architecture. You either need a BIOS update with microcode to support 1.5x Uncore, or your board simply physically can't do...

    @raja a little help would be nice here. Been asking for assistance with this since the board was released. I actually don't even have an IDE controller installed. All I've got in my PCIE slots are my two GPUs themselves. So I have no idea what the A8ZHIIJY controller is or where it's coming from.

    QPI voltage too high was the #1 cause of death in 32nm first gen i7's for overclockers. The reason is because they existed side by side with 45nm first gen i7's, and the 45nm first gen i7's could handle more qpi voltage... a lot more. I ran several 45nm chips at >1.5v QPI to get my 3x4GB...

    Doesn't matter, a V2 plug fits into a V1 socket. The physical pinout is identical. V1 PEG6 only had 2 12v conductors. V2 PEG6 has 3 12v conductors like PEG8. Pretty sure this was done so that V1 PEG6 couldn't be used in '6+2' fashion because it would be lacking the third conductor and not be...

    stop code 101 = give more vcore stop code 124 = give more qpi at bclk >180, if your board supports it, you might find better stability with reduced CPU PLL. Some boards allow CPU PLL down to 1.2v. My 990x was significantly more stable at high BCLK with 1.35v PLL than 1.8v PLL or 1.9v PLL...

    While the DX58SO was the last intel board [H] reviewed, it had nothing to do with the fact that it was bad and everything to do with the fact that Intel stopped making motherboards for the consumer market. CPU Microcode for each new processor needs to be added to BIOS. So if your DX58SO...

    Yes and no. I explained this previously. There is only a single clock domain for all cores. So, while the CPU will only go up to that speed when 2 core loads are active... All of your cores actually go up to that speed. Also, everything on OCN should be taken with a grain of salt as they do...
