    Nice! Drunken, but I take it they will be put on an aftermarket/watercooling soon? CF 290x is just asking for permanent hearing damage.

    Hah, yeah, probably doing something to that effect. They're going into the mining rig. I still didn't get the server over to my place though, so I'm missing mobo+CPU+cooler, which is annoying.

    Why didn't you get some of the aftermarket 290Xs, Drunken?

    'Cause I'm almost certainly putting a waterblock on them anyway. I didn't feel like shelling out the price of waterblocks for aftermarket coolers, that seems like I'd be paying twice for something. It also didn't help that I didn't get much relevant feedback in my thread when I asked. :/

    Ah, I see, that's a shame.

    From what I can tell the nonreference ones are tending to do better though in the temperature realm with better power-delivery systems and such. Hopefully water-cooling these will work well though!

    I love my monitor (MX279H) bought it on impulse at Best Buy. Works perfect for a PS4/Xbox one combo

    :drool: I know the ref-cooler got slandered but imo it looks pretty neat. Keyword "looks" :3

    For whatever reason you needed two copies of BF4 ;D

    I'd also want to get in on mining, but I'm too lazy to crunch the numbers of when/if the rig would actually ever be paid off. Add to that that noone knows what might happen to cryptocurrencies two weeks from now.. Ah well, no risk no reward.

    Oh really? You seeing it on other sites and people raving or something? :P

    I must say I am pretty damn happy with it. Do I wish I could get 1440p? Yes, and I know I could, but I'm going to stifle such a large buy, I've bought A LOT recently and I need to save... I mean hell, I still need to buy 2 Dream Theater tickets and save for some merch, because yay favorite band next to Iron Maiden!

    @Wries, you just need to work on getting your SSD-based storage up with your HDD-based storage.

    Don't be. They've been parked in my second computer since, because frankly they're too damn loud for me to use for mining. Gonna have to watercool them I think, but that'll take a few days at least to get the parts for.

    @IzoGray Doesn't that hurt you neck to be always looking up at your screen? I think that would kill me.

    On-topic: I agree with Akaena, that setup hurts my neck just looking at it, it'd be like sitting in the front row at the movie theater.

    Unless he was standing? Then he wouldn't have to look up so much. I've seen the occasional "standing" setup, definitely not common though :P
