I have a GTX650Ti.

 

Naturally the Boost came out after I already bought this card. Can't complain too much, though, since it runs very cool, and uses very little electricity.

I'm using a GTX 670 4GB. Good card, even with all my fans on low the card only hits a top temp of 63 with an overclock.

And I have two GTX670's sli'd ... never fear brother. You are not alone...

Speaking of the Ti Boost, what does the Boost part actually do? I recall reading on the box that the Boost function increses OC performance. Neither I nor my dad have ever stepped into OCing, so yeah.

Boost is actually somewhat like Intel's Turbo, I guess... It's so you can ramp up the clocks higher than normal

Customer brought a box in today, NZXT Phantom (What a PoS to work with...)  a Sabertooth Z77 MB 32 GB g.skill Ripjaws X i5 3750K and a MSI 7970 that he and his buddy put together...

 

Wouldn't post when they put it together... Either the board was DOA or they killed it, which was most likely the case. :)

 

Sorry dude you need a new board. :)

 

First Sabertooth I have seen, its a nice looking board.

What's wrong with a Phantom? And the Sabertooth is a nice looker, but have you seen the eVGA Classifieds?

lol I still find it hard to figure out how any one can kill electronics because of static or be afraid of bending the pins on your cpu.  I only built my first computer (well first entirely from scratch) last year and I haven't had any problems with breaking stuff, I'm far from an expert at this stuff too lol.

His was Red and that plastic top gave it a cheap factor IMHO, the side panels have those little puched out flat tangs that slide into a keyway in the case edge, and the metal I found on the thin side. Not to mention that the rubber grommets for the cable management would not stay in the holes.

 

I also hate a bottom mounted power supply, you can manage all cables except for the CPU power cable, there is never any place to hide it nicely.

There was a CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W in the bottom and you could almost sneak the CPU power cable up the back of the chassis for connection, after you moved the top fan, which then got in the way of the DVD burner.

 

And frigging around trying to get those rubber grommets back in place for the 5th time they just got cut out.

 

All the drives mount from the other panel side how annoying is that...

 

The USB connectors and audio jacks point straight up on top of the case, which will allow them to be full of dust, crumbs, cat hair and things that spring to life when you break something open.

 

I am used to Antec case's built out of 1mm steel where I could take the side panel and flatten your forehead with it when you gave me too much "You know what I'd do" while I was building your box. biggrin.gif

 

No I havn't seen the eVGA Classified. I'll have to take a look.

The pins on the CPU socket can be bent real easily these days.

 

He also brought in a CoolerMaster Storm Scout case with an ASRock Z77 Extreme6 MB, i5 3470, 16 GB of g.skill Ripjaws X this case had no drives or power supply.

The MB was dead in this box as well, so he is definitely doing something wrong.

My hand was shaking like crazy when I was dropping my CPU in.

I personally like the 410 in black, but eh, I'm fine with my Ostrog.

All the cases are good, they are  just a box to hold the guts...

I have a ancient inWin that works just fine too, it's only when you build them every day that you develop a dislike for certain cases and their layouts.

New box is looking pretty nice, pairs well with my new 27" X-Star.

Monitor came with 0 dead pixels, and gets to 115 Hz without artifacts.

I was just reading through some posts about temps and your temps are meaningless without the ambient temp.

 

Helped a friend all the way in PA (3 hour drive from where I live) build a computer running a Haswell i5 (5750 I think. He has a microcenter nearby and I'm jealous) and a GTX760 (one heck of a value card. 7950 still wins in compute regardless).

 

Really excited for the R9-XXXX cards (I think that's the new naming scheme. Too used to calling it the 9000 series cards). I'm even more excited for Kaveri but that won't be until H1 2014. With the fact that there has been no announcements of the Steamroller FX series CPUs, there's speculation Kaveri is going to take over or AMD is pulling out of the higher end consumer market dominated by Intel and going with their strongest product (APU in this case). Some of us have pretty high expectations if Gigabyte made a Sniper/Killer board for it along with another Ultra Durable. Really curious to see what Kaveri has to offer. If I can and if it's good, I'll replace my Trinity build with it.

I really want a Sniper board, but it kinda sucks how I'm always on a budget.
