Decided to give my secondary PC a boost (it was running a 750 Ti) – picked up EVGA’s newer (released January 2015) GTX 970 – the SSC. It came out along with the GTX 970 FTW+ – which is the same card with a slightly higher factory overclock and a pre-installed backplate. $45 more for that? […]
Picked up a couple of Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000 PWM 140mm fans to upgrade the cooling capabilities of my Corsair H110. Slapped them in push configuration and voila – shaved about 10 degrees Centigrade off of my 5960X temps! Also, replaced my Seasonic X-1250 1250W PSU (for no other reason other than my desire to have the […]
Loved my X99 Micro-ATX build (like seriously – I really loved that build – pretty much perfect – I put a lot into it and it ran so well!) but sure enough – my desire for bigger, better, faster, and more overtook me. 🙂 Fast forward to today and I am typing this on my latest […]
Picked up an ASUS Republic of Gamers G751 (G751JY-DH71) 17.3″ gaming laptop on January 9, 2015. I did a bunch of research and ended up choosing this model for several reasons: Great reviews (examples: 1, 2, 3, 4) Best single GPU discrete mobile graphics available (currently) in the NVIDIA GTX 980M. Upgrading CPU/GPU not a […]
Intel i7-5930K CPU (Corsair H110 280mm Liquid CPU cooler), Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4, EVGA GTX 980 SC 4GB (now: 2-way SLI), Samsung 850 Pro SSDs (256GB; 1TB) on a EVGA X99 Micro motherboard inside of a Corsair Obsidian 350D Micro-ATX tower – powered by a Seasonic X Series X-850 (850W; fully modular). So far […]
Been playing with a single R9 290X in my “secondary” rig (i5 2500K @ 4.6 GHz, 16GB RAM, all SSD drives, Win 8.1 Pro x64). This is at all stock speeds (no OC) with the “Uber” switch turned on. I ran Unigine Valley for about 10 minutes. Topped out in the mid 90’s C…insane for […]
I spent the weekend upgrading my CM Scout rig with 3-way SLI GTX Titans, among a few other items. 🙂 Had to kind of “hack” the H100 onto the Scout 2 case – it’s mounted externally with the internal case fans blowing out. I put an additional fan on the top for good measure. It […]
It has been a while! Work has been pretty busy and I’m now on my second upgrade of my 4-way GTX 680 SLI. The first upgrade can pretty much be chalked up to epic failure. The EVGA GTX 680 FTW+ 4GB cards had HUGE thermal performance issues in 4-way SLI. I thought EVGA’s enhanced vapor chamber […]
