    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.

    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.

    Thanks wasnt initially going for it, when i got the board and seen the blue heat sinks I just decided to get the corsair ram with the blue heat spreaders.

    Please don't use this thread to do the regular "Intel is better!"-arguments. There are reasons for both, such as getting one before one gets a GPU. Not saying it applies, just saying it's a reason.

    Fair enough. Just seemed odd.

    I had been using Intel for 8 years. I figured I'd give AMD a go since it had been a long time since I had owned one. A second reason is so that when I can get a solid i5 Haswell / i7 Haswell-E, I will be passing this CPU on to my Mom, who actually plays WoW, and this chip is a direct drop-in upgrade for her system (Currently running a Trinity).

    I also wanted to see how well it OC's with an AIO cooler, due to the crazy clocks I have seen via LN2 OC's. (8.5Ghz is just bonkers to me).
    Having the IGP and the Turbo locked out, dedicates the entire TDP to the processor.

    TL;DR
    I'ts an experiment that has a future for another system.

    Finally my other 770 GTX lighten arrived and I must say it looks pretty good

    Sorry for bad quality, S4 camera is horrible.

    I wait for a day when I could afford such a nice, shiny, powerful setup. Poland's a bitch, I must say. The amount of effort required to get a GPU like this in Poland is outrageous when compared to other, normal countries

    Going to get my new shizz on Wed, 8th of Jan after 4 PM. Will post dem screenies once I do some proper cable management this time.

    Got a new custom build desk, a dual monitor stand, and some lights around the desk to set it off! Everything is simple and clean!

    Sorry for the crappy Galaxy S4 pictures lol

    Dropped $200 and got this at my local Sam Ash today! Needless to say my Presonus Eris E5 studio monitors are sounding crystal clear now! Plus it allows to play the same audio through the speakers and headphones at different volume levels, which will be great for when I am drumming for a friend/camera!





    TASCAM US-366 USB Audio Interface folks, it works, gets rid of electrical noise of heavier duty computers and has loads of features!

    Basically just imagine it in the middle of my desk in this picture now:

    i7-5820K | ASUS X99- Deluxe | Crucial 2x8GB DDR4 2133MHz | eVGA GTX 760 SC | Crucial MX100 512GB | Crucial M500 240GB | Crucial m4 128GB | Western Digital Blue 1TB | Western Digital Black 1TB | SeaSonic X660 Gold
    ASUS MX239H | Schiit Stack Modi + Asgard 2 | Audio Technica ATH-AD700 | Presonus Eris E5 Studio Monitors | Blue Snowball Mic | Razer Death Adder | Corsair K70 | CyberPower 1500PFCLCD UPS

    Which of the books produce better audio quality for its speaker?
    Also, do you normally keep your mic there? I'd personally be distracted, even if sitting at an angle looking past it, due to reflections.

    What's up with the GPU that just "happened" to be lying near the Tascam btw?

    Either way, neat idea, I approve (although I haven't checked up on Tascam before or now, so I cannot comment on it, but I'm liking what I'm seeing)

    The difference between monitors in that picture isn't even visible outside of the picture...or maybe I've adapted to not noticing it? Very strange!

    Skyrim, it has a larger base. The philosophy book isn't quite big enough.

    No, mic is usually laying down. Just for the picture I wanted things to look more neat. However, not sure if you saw, but I am planning to pick up one of these.

    That's my ol' MSI GTX 560 Ti.

    Thanks! Apparently TASCAM has had their rough times but the US-366 people are saying is them doing a good job at making something higher quality again. As much as I want to use it for headphones, I feel I may still use the Xonar, as the headphone port on this thing isn't strong by any means. 18mW+18mW. >_> I can kind of tell with both my Audio Technica ATH AD700s and the Shure SRH440s. However it is certainly a fantastic improvement over the shit I was doing before!

    The knobs turn really smoothly. It's sexy.
