yeah.... those are rather impressive temps. not sure if it's your case or the fact that you have liquid on your CPU, but i don't think either of those would account for the fact that right now my original GTX 295+ is idling at nearly your load temps.
Half tempted to try to RMA my GTX 295 and see if i get a GTX 295 Co-Op.....
Dude I love the wiring jobs you guys have done! I have to get some longer cable before I can make mine look anywhere near yours. Great job!
Great job matey, very neat and tidy! Just buff off those annoying fingerprints!:thumbup:
^^ thanks and i will when i get the rest of my stuf, was hoping to get my rivets in the post to day but they havent come so carnt finish the case of properly yet
Great job man very nice!
my staff are still in the way i can not wait!!!
As soon as they come i will call sick at work for 2-3 days!!!
Not exciting but im going to do 280 sli on air, going to fit an 80mm fan on the back side panel
draining went suspicously well normally my trouser end up soaked in watercooling liquid
How come your moving back to air mate? hows the pump treatin ya?
Hi Mike yeh the pump is really great good flow, i cant really afford another waterblock so im going to just aircool 2 280s might strap a 120mm fan at the front or side of them
i think the waterblock is causing the 280 to short this is why it goes orange light (i used 1 mm pads so im also thinking its not squishing on the ram enough they are just flat non squidgey thermal pads lol)
Got another G2 in the mail today. :toke:
For those who are curious, I am using this mounting kit to attach them to my HDD railing.
I'll use one for my OS/Games and the other for storage.
Kidding.. I'm going put them in RAID0 with 128k stripe size and use Windows 7 Professional x64 that I got for $20. :thumbup:
Hey.... how about splurging some of that money (and the secret to your $20 W7 Pro) this way? lol
I sell/buy stuff and do paid online surveys while I'm in college, nothing more. :nerd:
This is how much I paid (after cashback offers) for the SSD: http://www.hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1034596800&postcount=33
As for the OS, I got the deal here: http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1446708
thank God for MSDNNAA or I wouldn't have copies to any Microsoft products minus the ones I can get through work.
MSDN is a lovely thing. Thank you Univeristy for supplying me with W7, Vista 64 (3 Serials for it too) XP 64, Xp 32....i think you get the idea . Still sweet ass rig's here. Im still tempted to pull mine apart and get some cable managment sorted using a dremel.
I miss my MSDN account already.......I knew I had a good reason to do a Masters
Finally!!! After a hell of a lot of dust and bending and cursing I managed to properly route the power cable to the annoyingly middle-placed connector on my crappy mobo!!! The joys of cable management!!!
The ugly side:
I also reoriented the OCZ heatsink (was facing upwards), re-applied the paste, and after taking the pictures removed one of the UV cathodes (they´re not really showing since it's a closed case, and added more clutter). Looks way better now, don´t ya think?
as much as i hate to say it.... i don't really recommend that 24-pin power cable running under the edge of the video card. Granted, that end is screwed down... but it can't be healthy for the card, or the cable.
OMFG what where Asustek thinking when they placed the 24pin there in the first place.
I think i once owned that mobo well an asrock one ages ago and it was by far the worst mobo ive ever used
I am an idiot there goes my rma bye bye
i knew i should of heated the sticker up
