Just the way the conversation was like, "nice rig, what's your soundcard?" "oh, idk what sound signature I'm gonna have for my next cans so I'm not sure yet" hahaha

Intel i7-950 cooled by a corsair H80
Intel DX58SO mother board
Nvidia 470 GTX
2 x Seagate 1TB Harddisk
Windows 7 Home Premium 
Coolermaster GX 750W Bronze
NZXT Hades Computer case
3 x 2 GB RAM

That's it, quite an old setup! Looking forward in getting a new GPU ^^ Recommendations anyone?

post #1488 of 2052

i have a new spec. h100. first one was defective. overheat shutdown in 10 seconds. second one idling at 18c, 36c under full load! cool! lol.

post #1489 of 2052

just a question guys please. i lowered the pwm fan control from stock 1.75 to 1.50. i was wondering if it can still go max fans if it needs to? thanks.

I'm fairly sure that it depends on the motherboard... Some do and some don't.. Does it have a quiet mode or performance mode?

 

IE: My CPU cooler fan is always rotating at the same speed, regardless of the temperature of the CPU

 

edit: Why lower the fan speed? The cooler the better, even if the noise it quite loud... :P

because i am trying to listen to music in here lol. it is a digital controller on the front of the case bot the motherboard. they will still spin faster the hotter it gets but it is rpm per c. so i will not have as much cooling at any temp as on max. max is like a friggin jet engine. no good for me. right now it is turned way down and it is idling at 21c. prime95 gets it to 41c. that is good enough quite frankly imo. sure, the colder the better but i can't stand it that loud. at max i kind of guess i could break 5ghz but i don't really mind 4.5. the 6 core does not o/c as good as the 2500k to begin with.

Recently upgraded my computer

 

8gb DDR3 1600 ram

Sapphire HD 6850

AMD FX-6100 Stock

1TB Western Digital HD

64GB Crucial M4 SSD

Asrock 970 Extreme 3

Antec BP550 psu

 

Quick question, if the cpu socket is AM3+ should older amd cpu coolers work on it? I bought an aftermarket sunbeam core contact freezer cooler for my cooler but for some reason it wouldn't fit, off by just a cm but just won't fit regardless so I'm sticking with stock cooling for now. 

post #1493 of 2052

Thought it was the same mounting as AM3 which is the same as AM2+. Only think I could think of was that you got somthing back to front etc or if its clips onto the CPU socket frame mayby that has changed slightly?

post #1494 of 2052

- Antec 900

- i5 2500K @ 4.3/4.4Ghz (can't remember)

- Asus P8P67 Rev. 3

- MSI GTX560Ti Twin Frozr II/OC

- Windows 7 x64

I pretty much only boot it up to play Battlefield 3. Everything else is done on my 13" MBP (early 2011) with 8GB RAM and 500GB Seagate Momentus XT upgrades.

post #1495 of 2052

So i moved my rig over to the plasma to play games, watch movies n such a whole lot easier. Then i set up some cheapo rig in my room, lol it was...

 

P4 1.8ghz Willamette

512mb DDR

VIA Savage S3 graphics on MSI mobo, upgraded to Radeon 7000 hoping for native 1680*1050 and it still wouldn't work.

80gb IDE HDD

 

And i loaded Windows 7 on it! Haha! Not sure if it was the RAM or CPU, probably both, but it was just unusable! Replaced it with:

 

Athlon 64 3000+ (which is awesome cause it was my first gaming rig CPU)

1GB DDR

Asrock board that just so happens to have AGP and PCI-E, woot!

HD3450, woohoo full screen!

Xonar DG

200GB SATA

I ordered that Logisys clear case i always wanted for it as well! Should be here soon.

 

Of course my rig was:

C2D@ 3ghz

4gb

GTX460

Xonar DS

WD 640GB

Corsair modular 520W

 

Family rig:

Athlon X4 (soon to be X6)

2GB

GT240

Xonar DG

WD 320GB

OCZ modular 500W

 

All of them crunching World Community Grid, if head-fi doesn't have any crunching teams we need to start one! Helping find cures for cancer, mapping the internet, math equations or looking for aliens, it's all good fun!

I broke down recently and bought a HP ZR2740w. Such a beautiful monitor, and the anti glare coating doesn't bother me at all. I just need a graphics card with a displayport output and everything will be perfect.

post #1497 of 2052

guys i read most sandybridge boards like to run the "auto" vcore setting around 1.36. the cpu takes 1.2. won't this kill the cpu? i lowered it manually to get 1.2 which was actually setting it at 1.08 and got instant bsod. perhaps the readings and sensors are just not accurate on this stuff? i am just worried about killing the cpu. thanks.

Beautiful set up, I must say though... that the mouse pad you have is incredibly large... what sensitivity do you usually use for BF3?

 

post #1500 of 2052

Thanks! I switch mouse sensitivity on-the-fly when scoped with sniper rifles in BF3 (I believe from 2000 to 800 dpi) so the large surface area is definitely needed. I also like the extra granular control I have when editing images, especially zoomed in, using the large mouse pad and low dpi.
