    As for your friend, I guess he isn't moving it around a lot. :P

    I was not aware QNIX made those, thanks, that info might come in handy in the future.

    Guys, brace yourselves. I'm going to show you my PovertyGaming XTREME build. It's weak, looks bad and is bad in general. Those of you who maintain a sick looking PC and are faint of heart, do NOT look.





    CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8200 2,33 -> 2.592 GHz BOX cooling
    RAM: 1x4G 1.33 ghz CL-7
    GPU: EVGA GTX460 1GB OC'd to perform better than a stock 470
    MB: ASUS P5G41T-M S LGA775
    PSU: OCZ ModXstream 700W Modular
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
    Fans: What fans? There are none!
    Case: I have no idea, really.
    ... and a 23" Hhilips 236VL screen.

    A new setup coming Soon™ - not so poverty anymore, will post it as soon as it's built, will have some "proper" cooling, better cable management and some blue led fans as well :3

    Decided to go with a different case, instead of the I-BOX Virgo 914 with 2 blue led fans and a window I've ordered a SilentiumPC Brutus M23 Pure Black. Won't be as flashy, but it looks good nonetheless. Assuming everything goes as expected, I'll have my new cooler, mobo, cpu & case on 6th of January. Can't wait for the fps boost :3

    The new Rig

    I've been running with a heavily modified Dell XPS 8300 for the last 2+ years. It was time to get some new-ish tech. For xmas, family asked me for a wish list. Having been using Intel for the last 8 years, I decided to give AMD a shot, and see what I could do on a small-ish budget. Total spent is around $400 for case, CPU, MoBo, and H60 cooler.

    Total parts list inc...

    AMD A10-6800K (IGP Disabled, Turbo disabled)
    Gigabyte F2A88X-D3H Mobo
    16Gig Corsair Vengeance Blue 1600Mhz Dual Channel DDR3
    Intel 520 Series "Cherryville" 120Gig SSD (Main OS Drive)
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 64Mb Cache (Storage / Backup)
    NVidia GTX 560Ti 1Gig, 256bit Vid card
    Corsair "GS600" 600w PSU *First Gen, Blue LED fan on push button switch*
    Fractal Designs "Define R4 Silent" Case in Black Pearl finish
    Corsair H60 AIO Cooler
    2x Xigmatech 120mm Purple LED Crystal Series fans *One intake, bottom of case, one exhaust, top*
    2x Fractal Designs 140mm Fans *Stockers, front mounted, Intake, on the built in 3 speed fan controller*
    --
    Here are specs during stress testing. I'm concerned about the CPU temps, as the "Easy Tune" software reports way lower temps. Conflicting numbers bother me. The stock settings fore everything sent this beast to 83c(!!!) thus the under clocking.


    Side shot with case closed up.


    My work space. Screens are a Dell 23" main, and an Acer 20" to the left.

    Should flash that 6950 to a 6970. Unlocks all its goodness and they tend to over clock pretty well. I've a Sapphire 6970, great card, and as far as I know, the '50 has the dual bios switch just like the 90. Flash one, if it doesn't work out, flip the switch, and you are back to stock settings.

    Mine doesn't have the switch unfortunately (atleast I didn't see one). Looked into that when I had first got it.

    Use this modding tool because it mods your default bios & doesnt do anything else than unlocking the extra shaders: http://www.techpowerup.com/wizzard/Mod_BIOS_HD_6950.zip - Just put your bios in the map, name it original.bin, open run.bat and then you will just see moddedoriginal.bin in that map.

    Mantle removes the possibility of a CPU bottleneck. Back to topic.

    Update

    So, I decided to remove 8gigs of my ram. I noticed that the H60 hoses were starting to put some side pressure against one of the sticks. Luckily, the DIMM arrangement allows for 2 sticks to be in place, and have the slot nearest the CPU socket free. After that, I decided to try and get the 4.4Ghz this thing is supposed to "Turbo" to, as a 24/7 clock. here's the results. Notice the temp difference between ET6, and HWMonitor. I've concluded that ET6 uses a sensor on the MoBo, while HWMonitor use the actual die sensor.
    http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/5868/k7nd.png

    Temps shown are basically at idle, and the "Peak" temp shown in HWMonitor is during normal gameplay in WoW. The massive difference in temps between the 2 softwares bothers me, but its never shut down due to heat, so, I dunno.

    I will have some better shots of the entire setup later today, as I got ahold of a friends camera, which beats the iPhone4's snapper all day long.

    ::Edit::

    CPU-Z shows 119mhz on the bus speed, its actually 120, as it fluctuates. locked speed is 4.31Ghz.
