it is correct. I did realize quickly why it was so cheap when i got it. EVGA sent me a recall notice on the card around January of last year because the card was prone to igniting when under high load situations.
it runs hot, and it it is not for overclocking. i would go with a B360 motherboard, or a higher-end MOBO if you want to overclock.
twas still an interesting pairing.
UPDATE: He brought his PC back to me complaining that his system was too loud. Apparently i left his fans turning at 100% on his GPUs whilst they are water cooled.
I sure hope this was a joke. +1
Nice upgrades Man. +1
where'd the drives wind up?
dubai? for some reason thought this was in like Miami.
thank you. impressive.
not what i was asking.
What'd you use to take some of those pictures?
so very true with these cases.
well, it's just lovely. congrats on the new build. better photos can come at a later time though, if we can see it we can appreciate it. thank you for at least having images of this well put together RGB machine. +1
i no longer have to worry with it nymore, i gave the chip and board to my father, the syste he was using died, and i realized i had no need like my dad did of my computer, considering all i do n it is game.
you're all good.
unfortunately for me, Microcenter is a 5 hour drive from Des Moines to Chicago, so online is really my only option.
beautiful Living room based Showpiece/powerhouse.
in the same boat. my 1060 cant push 5120x1440 in most of the games i play, but i cannot get my hands on a 1080 or 1070 for a good price ATM because they keep buying all of the GPU's. it good and truly sucks, hopefully you can actually get that 1060 you're looking for though.
8th generation is well worth it, trust me. you will not regret if you buy an 8th gen CPU and a z370 motherboard
i already pulled the trigger on the FT3 DT icx gaming from EVGA's Web page. now i only need to save another 1500 dollars for the rest of the part going in it.
it looks kinda oddly similar to the build i gave my parents side from the outside iew of the case and the GPU.
nice build, probably the highest end first build ive ever seen on here.
i'm actually going to go through with the EVGA web page to buy my FTW3icx for MSRP.
well, now i know why i cant get my hands on a 1080ti. and it's not that i hate you guys as people, what i hate is the fact that you guys have found a way to use gaming cards to do this and that is why i am ticked off at this. i want to be able to upgrade my system but 1300 dollars for a GPU that normally costs 725 is a tad bit ridiculous to me.
thank you to you too for the information about the 301. i will keep that power delivery (PSU and cable management) thing in mind when it comes to building in there. i still have yet to hear back on some people's thoughts on the node 202, which is the other case that i am looking at using for the build, but i think that BitWit has helped me rule that case out though. Again thank you for the information on the case and for checking out my build.
at idle I'm chillin at around 21-23 degrees depending on the core and where my heater is set in my house, usually a 20 degree ambient temp. and at load i rarely have exceeded the mid 40's but this is due to the fact that i am using the 7700t which is a 35 watt TDP chip versus the 65 watt TDP of the 7700.
but this cooler has done admirably with an 8600k running at 4.8GHz at 1.25 Volts with max temps, with the fan running at 75%, of 70 degrees.
Also how was the experience of building inside the 301, looking at using it as an HTPC in my living room to replace the Xbox one that currently sits there.
jeez man, did you replace the coolant from the x62 with liquid helium or something. that is one heck of an overclock on that chip. +1
thank you that really does help a lot with monitor choice; i was debating between two of these panels or a 34 inch 3440/1440 ultra wide and i now think that i've made up my mind, thank you.
Amazing little setup you have there. How's the monitor? looking at changing out my dual 1080p monitors for these at the end of summer.
thank you, now i know how to tick my friend off with his new build. (he's having me build it for him and he has two of these cards, so i'm going to do that just to irritate his OCD)
stupid question but are you able to run the GPU fans on the card when you have it water cooled? i just want to know for craps and giggles.
aren't you also the guy behind the 8350k account? other than that i would suggest maybe a 1050ti if you wanted to do a bit of gaming with it, but it will run all of the tasks you want it to do at this time.
they really should've put them in the region with the tubes so you could run the cables along the pump tubes and run them around the back with the fans from the radiator. it would be so much cleaner and easier to manage.
i think that some cable combs would go a long way in here to extend the cleanliness of the build, though it is already an extremely clean build overall, good job. +1
Optimum makes his own sleeved cables for his builds.
Georgia must be really happy them mate, she did a very nice job in building this one, it's clean, aside from the annoying cables from the pump on the x62, but oh well.
thank you, it was a pain in the rear to get all of the cables to bend the way i needed to to get then to be as clean as they are, HDMI does not like to bend, neither do AC power cables.
you're fine, there are other reasons in here but i also had to consider the possibility that this system would also be used till it dies, so the 8600k still made more sense to me than handing them a 7700T based system.
that was my thought.
technically it was my birthday gift a few days early. and my late gift to my father for his birthday.
i do not play FPS's across both screens i only play Forza across it so the cockpit cam looks like it has an a pillar in it so i don't really notice it all that much, it does not bother me.
the good news is i only had to spend 170 dollars once, my parents bought their other 16gb of ram themselves so their system would have 32gb of ram.
thank you, it's michael McClaren from cars 2.
i may have dropped it off the summit of mount shavanno while guiding a BSA troop up the mountain, it still works BTW.
thank you, if you would like it you can find it on Deviantart under the creator brovvine.
i'm curious, how many system fan headers does the board come with?
cable management on point. part choice stellar. build 10/10. enjoy it, you can literally do anything with that PC.
