Some nice rigs being posted up. Very nice.
Those temps are brilliant Stu.
Here's my first attempt at custom water cooling. I went with a duel loop setup, first loop is cpu and mobo, he second loop is just the videocards.
Here's a link to more pics of the build
Very nice I like the UV reactive tubing. Very clean and well built.
Btw they know me as bits-to-bytes on other forums and places.
Well my first attempt on a AMD build I did, haven't touched a AMD CPU since Socket A. Hope you guys like it idk where this kind of work rates in the computer world. It's called "The Waiting Kill-Dozer."
My Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000RPM's Custom Mounted On H100 Radiator.
Dual eVGA GTX 570SC/HD
Hard Drives RAID 0 And 5.
Front With LCD Fan Controller
Inside The Waiting Kill-Dozer AMD FX8120-4.6ghz 24/7 Bench 4.9ghz Load 45C Idle 30C-35C.
Top Card Normal eVGA GTX570 SC Load 50C-55C @80% Fan Speed Bench 900mhz Core 2300mhz RAM @1.050volts 24/7 850/2300 @1.038volts
Bottom eVGA GTX570 SC HD (Just got last night.) Load 55C-60C @85% Fan Speed 85% Bench 900mhz Core 2300mhz RAM @1.038volts 24/7 850/2300 @1.038volts
Side Of Case Dual 120MM Fans Kinda Wanted 240MM's But Too Lazy Outside View
PSU Corsair 1200watt 80 Plus Gold
got a new phone so i can now take pictures of everything like everybody else.
the OG Raven
My rig below
Wow.... and i thought MY wire management wasn't that great. haha
all kidding aside... nice rig you got there. Jealous of the 680 :'(. And it's not often you see someone with a rear INTAKE fan.not entirely sure why you'd want it that way. I mean yea... you're bringing in air from outside the case to the inside, directly under the radiator.... but that's also basically the air straight from the PSU and GPU.
I'll apologise for the crappy picture quality, but I'm not a photographer and my camera sucks ass.
Anyway, this is my backup/old gaming rig for play older titles on.
Athlon XP 3200+ OCed to 2.4 GHz (200 x 12)
Gigabyte GA-7N400 motherboard
Nvidia 6800 GT with aftermarket cooler (can't remember brand)
2 GB DDR RAM 400 MHz CAS 3-3-3-7
450W Powercool modular PSU
2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm drives in RAID0 (2 x 80 GB)
Windows XP SP3
Still a pretty decent rig, runs many modern games at 720p with ease. I'm trying to source parts for a P4 equivelant on eBay to do a comparison with.
why do ppl put 2 CF or SLi bridged on their cards ?
Man that cards is Hella Bending !
I know, but that's just the way it sits in the case and probably the angle of the shot, too. There are 2 side fans in there blowing cold air on the CPU cooler and GFX card. Everything runs cooler than my main rig. Photos of that to come soon.
Thanks though my temps are great, I get high 50s low 60s at load on the CPU and the 680 never hits 70 while gaming. If I decide to go SLI again I may reconsider the rear intake but at the moment its working well
i do it cause i like the look of it better, ive been running it this way for a long time and nothing bad has come of it
so no real gain... just for the heck of it ?
haha yep! some ppl say they've noticed an improvement but i think they are pulling that out of where the sun doesnt shine
I have tested set-ups like that and I can say there is micro-stutter for Crossfire set-ups using 2 cards with 2 bridge's 3dmark vantage is the best one to test with
noticing improvements is a myth the only notice you ever well benchmarks will see is if you go from PCIE 8x + 8x to PCIE 16x + 16x
but on the other hand if you don't get a problem and you like 2 bridge's in go for it
That is a seriously clean looking build, nice work. However, the best thing is the Gerrard poster in the backround :banana:
Added another 240mm Black Ice SR-1 radiator to bottom of case.
Think you have a large enough gap between that rear rad and the back of the case? Haha. Surprising to see the use of fan grills, too. Never really liked them, myself. Even in situations where you don't necessarily need a lot of static pressure, they tend to make any fan suck.
