    WTB: CPU/MB/RAM/GFX Card

    I have about $800 currently to spend on core system components listed in title. I'm looking to Max out 1080p settings with good fps. I was going to buy new but thought I could maybe get more for my money here. I'm usually partial to Intel but will consider AMD as well. I'm looking for 8th i7 or...

    A case mod....sort of.

    My buddy begged me to build him a Minnesota Wild themed arcade and it turned out pretty decent. The bottom comes off allowing full access to joysticks and easy removal of the tv if needed. Its sitting on a lazy susan type base I use just for taking pics.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    I settled on 4.3ghz, which is a pretty nice OC. I could boot and poke around at 4.5 but decided it wasn't worth the effort. For some reason if I set my ram at more than 1.6 in bios windows won't recognize it. Doesn't seem to be an issue for overclocking though. My ram default says 1.65.

    Switch Refresh: 1366 Hexcore

    Yeah, it was more like I had them so why not. Also all my fans run at 5v and is almost silent, however, the temps a just a non issue. Thanks for the feedback.

    Switch Refresh: 1366 Hexcore

    Man, what happened to the mod threads? Not even one comment after years? Oh well, I just made some more changes and so I thought I would post pics anyway. I wanted to update the looks of the case and give it some detail so I wrapped it in carbon fiber and added some lighting. Current...

    Some new benchmarks after I switched to a GTX 980. This is a really fun system and it makes my friend with a brand new i3 rig really sad. I was running OCCT in the background which is why temps are up. With 3 radiators this is as hot as it gets and my gfx card hasnt hit 40c yet. [/URL I...

    I lucked out and got an Asus p6x68d-e from ebay for right at $100. I switched to the Xeon on my EVGA board because I already had it. Once the word got out all this hardware went through the roof. If it wasnt such a hassle I would just sell off everything and building a new system because I...

    FS: MSI 7970 and EK water block $110

    yeah, I know. I thought maybe I would get a better deal in trade. It might find its way into my son's system.

    FS: MSI 7970 and EK water block $110

    Just upgraded to a newer card so this one needs a new home. Card works great, never overclocked or mined. Included factory cooler. I have all the retail stuff but shipping will be cheaper if I can leave some out. Trades: Looking for a nice modular PSU for my son's build. $110 obo...

    I know the timer was only on for a minute but this was after a few hours of stressing. I am pretty happy with the results and just added a GTX 980 to the mix. My temps are pretty amazing running through 3 rads. Not my most recent pic but only the gfx card has changed.

    Maker EVO Deluxe

    Nice fab skills. I like seeing actual case modding. I see the pics of components in the woods and set on concrete or grass and I am curious how many funny looks you get carrying PC components out in the woods for pics. Hahaha.

    WTB Watercooled GFX card, need a good upgrade from a 7970

    Like the title says I am looking to upgrade my 7970 and use it in a build for my son. I think I want to give NVidia a try. So I am thinking a GTX 980 or something like that. I need to stay around $300.

    I currently have two X58 boards, an EVGA FTW3 and an Asus P6X58D-E. Currently running the FTW3 with a X5650 and it clocks pretty good, but seem to struggle above a 200blk. Any reason to think the Asus would do better or any other reasons to switch boards? Which ever board I dont use my son...

    WTB: Water cooled GPU

    I have quite a few spare parts and some water cooling stuff so I thought I would build my son his own Minecraft machine. I am looking for an older card with 2gb of vram and a full coverage WB. I might entertain a newer card to replace my 7970 and I will let him have it. He is 6 so he isn't...

    Benq XL2411Z 144hz gaming monitor for about $225 (TN panel)

    Eyefinity doesn't appeal to me at all. I just was tempted to go dual monitor but didn't know if this would be wasted on a secondary.

    Benq XL2411Z 144hz gaming monitor for about $225 (TN panel)

    If I wanted to do dual monitors, but only game on one would two of these be overkill. If so what would be a good match to this for a secondary?

    $400 budget single vs dual

    I really want to upgrade my aging 24 in Dell 1920×1200 monitor. I have always thought dual monitors would be awesome but I'm not sure I need them. I just do some run of the mill photo/video editing, some gaming with a watercooled 7970, and other general stuff. I would like to be able to turn on...

    I am happy with my L5640 at 3.8 but I really wonder what I could do with an 22 or 23 muli with my cooling. I am seeing 26C idle and mid 60s under load with my fans at 5v. I really need to start from scratch and get some you experts to help me find my blck limit of my board so I can see how...

    Watch out for Ultra Man

    Ok everyone, just wanted to follow up say that everything has worked out and the claim has already been dropped. I know sometimes it is easy to jump to conclusions, but want to make it know that everything is handled and I dont want to spread any negatives about Ultra or Enatron. Im just glad...

    Watch out for Ultra Man

    I never want to tarnish anyone's rep if it's just a matter of miscommunication and I admit I should have looked more closely at the receipt because the tracking info would have avoided this. I feel most of us assume the worst....including me. Hopefully this will resolve itself. What are you...

    Watch out for Ultra Man

    Well my wife, who is smarter than me, said that if I got insurance it would have a tracking number. I had to dig for the receipt but I found it. 13121810000011116085. It shows its still in New Jersey.

    Watch out for Ultra Man

    I am not sure if they are shady or not, but he was acting as a middle man for somebody that bought a gfx card for me. I was basically begged to ship it to an APO and made the deal. When I got paypal payment his "friend" put in the notes that he just changed his address so reluctantly I shipped...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Interesting results. I disabled HT just to play around and I got a big jump in GFlops and temps are down about 10C under load. I am still seeing how low I can get my vcore and other voltages.

    This was after running 3 consecutive runs of 10 on Intel Burn test. I am still lowering vcore to see how low I can take it.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    The L5640 only runs at 17x, this is one of the reasons I am thinking about switching to an X5660. The low power Xeons just cant get that high with the low multi. I am running a 205 bclk but I am not sure my board can go much higher.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Why did my CPU all of a sudden decide it wants to boot at 19x multiplier? Update: Apparently Turbo was working and bumping the multiplier up, but I didnt realize it worked with Xeons.
