nice water cooler~~~ Is that a custom build one, or OEM one?

 

I did not see the reviser and pump, if you have it, better show it~~~~~I find putting water inside your case very very sexy~~~~~~

Definitely custom! It's the FrozenQ Liquid Fusion V res and the Swiftech MCP-655
post #1863 of 2056

wow, nice~~~

How much time you spend to mod it?

I always wanna to go with custom water cooling, but not sure I got the tools to do the body work.

Do you have schematics before you start remodel? Or everything just fit in as you install them?
 

post #1864 of 2056

If you pick the right case, everything will fit with little effort.

post #1865 of 2056

As you can see my post in the last page. My case is pretty big but so is my stuff. I am having another 680 coming and not sure I have enough room for the radiator~~~~

 

I got the full tower because i want to work on some water cooling system, but in the end, I think there is more than just screw drives I need~~~~

I've got a 

 

i5 3570k @ 4.2ghz (Had it at 4.7, decided to keep the voltage low)

Corsair H100i (Going to sell it and get a Noctua D14)

G.Skill Sniper 2133MHz DDR3 RAM (Looks kinda ugly quite frankly)

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H (Really regret not spending the extra $40 on the UD5H)

Crucial M4 256GB

Fractal Define R4 in white

 

Dualbooting Windows 8 and OS X 10.8

Don't have a GPU yet, I'm looking at getting the GTX 760 in a few months. I'll post pics of my case when I get it, because right now it looks awfully dull.

 

Also planning on getting an HRT MSII and a pair of studio monitors. I'm done with headphones for the time being.

if you wanna get the best performance to price, try get an AMD card~~~~ For my experience, Nvidia is going down slop on their driver for a while and there is not a signal release in the past year to support NVIDIA. (No phyX and no Nvidia titile game anymore due to the fact that both next gen console is using AMD bundle~~~).

This is coming from an NVIDIA fan boy who only uses Intel and Nvidia for his entire life~~~~~~~

 

 

P.S.

 

Before you switch your cooler, make sure your G.skill is not to high~~~ The reason I got the H100 is because my corsair donimator GT is too high and come with fans. The only thing that can fit in is the stock cooler or water cooler~~~~~~~

How dual boot an mac OS? I have 3 OS now: Ubuntu, win7 and win 8.

I know AMD's performance looks tempting, but right now they don't have as much support on OS X as Nvidia does. That's the only thing holding back my GPU choices. Although considering the new Mac Pro uses Radeon cards, support should get better. Heck, I might just end up waiting for AMD's next gen. I barely play games during school semester anyway.

 

I'm pretty sure the Sniper RAM fits under the Noctua, I think I remember them being on the cooler's compatibility list.

 

And to dual boot OS X you need a supported motherboard. Most Gigabytes and Asus motherboards are natively compatible, some MSI and Asrock MB's need a bit of tweaking to get them to work. Once you have the supported MB it should be a pretty straight forward install. You do need a copy of Mountain Lion and a Mac to create the USB disk. I just bought an 8GB flashdrive solely for this purpose.

 

There are lots of guides on www.tonymacx86.com

might give it a shot. Mine 680s are not MAC version, so might be tricky~~~ Do have an USB drive, a 64G one, but it is an usb3.0 SSD, so might be tricky again~~~

Hack, just for fun~~~~

The GPU doesn't need to be Mac compatible. When you're installing it, you need to remove any GPU and use Intel HD, then after you install OS X you can install the GPU and the drivers. All Nvidia GTX 5xx, 6xx and 7xx seem to be compatible with OSX. As for the Radeons, you need the latest OS X 10.8.4 for the 7000 series to be compatible.

 

I tried making the USB drive with a Mountain Lion I got from a certain pirate website, but that didn't work. I kept getting an error. You need the original Mountain Lion from the app store (which is $20).

post #1871 of 2056

lol, too bad my mother board is X58, there is noway I got an intel HD in it~~~~~~

Guess gonna wait till Ivy-extreme come up~~~~

post #1872 of 2056

X79 support on OS X isn't as good as 1155 / 1150 though. 

post #1873 of 2056

I guess I will go Chrome OS then~~~~ Just for fun~~~~

Or build an X79 rig with compatible parts and have OS X + Chrome OS. haha

 

I main OS X, I only use Windows for games and emulators. Having an exposé for switching programs makes me a 1,000 times more productive.
