    the interior snake nest (argh how i hate non modulair now)

    close-up of how tight the clearing between card and hdd cage is +- 0,5cm


    running benches as we speak and lets hope i can get them at a stable 1200+ clock

    What you really should do is move the SSD up with the HDD and use that bottom drive bay as a place to store your excess cables. It's kind of sad though that you spent so much on graphics cards and have such a sub-par PSU in comparison.

    i know but i find it kinda silly to replace the PSU just for that.
    besides i'd also pick a new case for my next full new build in order to make sure i can even do some proper cable management.
    also i must say so far not that impressed with the coolers on the cards. even with 100% fan im hitting 74 degrees.

    True.. I actually understand fully haha.

    The reason 3rd party heatsinks haven't actually improved much is because of GPU Boost 2.0. In my understanding that since it's temperature based it is actually more aggressive than 1.0 and tries to push the GPU's clock and voltages more if the temperatures allow it. Basically from what I've read it simply pushes the GPU to its maximum allowed boost clock and voltage at an attempt to get to 80C and then it attempts to regulate the clock speed and voltage to keep it as close to 80C as possible.

    Possibly if you look through this thread here you may be able to find a vbios for your Gigabytes that has GPU Boost 2.0 and thermal throttling disabled. Could prove to increase overall performance too since it'll be at a fixed clock speed.

    well for 600 each it was kinda hard to not atleast try those gigabyte ones.
    figured if i can run 1200+ on the gb cards im a happy man already. (and save +- 500 euro compared to classifieds + EVbots)

    edit: thanks for link saithes, been looking at that myself aswell but not too sure if i should try voltmod already. (or how big the loss of boost 2.0 would be)

    Shroudster... You just passed the point where running on air is viable. If you don't add 700 euros to that build in watercooling gear, it will break down....

    almost :P
    swapped my side fan from intake to exhaust which kinda made a 10degrees drop already.
    im going full custom loop when the next extreme socket hits the market. (although i'll pass it if it's still ivy)
    also no way i can fit 700 euro's worth of WC gear in my current case

  13. #11253
    Yeah, you really need a new/bigger case :P

    Ive-E is supposed to be the next at the end of the year if rumors stay true. It'll still be 2011 and I think I read X89 boards.

    Such a shame Cooler Master still thinks it is okay to give a $60 case the cheapo look of an OEM case. -.-

    @Shroud, what case is that? And God damn, the PSU is on one end of the quality spectrum with your GPUs on the other.

    Please replace asap. kthxbai

    I personally like the look of the HAF series.

    Anyways, here's my setup. Try to ignore how much of a mess it is, I moved relatively recently and am too dang lazy to properly unpack and get everything looking all purdy and neat.
    (Also I need to rethink my placement. At the moment, my TV has to be off center for the HDMI to reach my computer. Alternatively I could just buy a 4th freaking HDMI cord in the course of 2 days. Uugh.)

    I had the HAF X 942, I hate it now, after 2 years of use.

    How nice of you to put the computer next to that heater.

    The heater's not even plugged in, neither is the fireplace. Also, it's a basement in Canada. Not exactly the hottest environment in the world for a PC. Nicetrydoe.
