Let us know how the mainboard works out.
I just decided that the two shall never meet. I'm using an older i7-870 for Linux only. It keeps the OS-Squirrels at bay.
Somebody just gave me a Q6600 chip and board with 16GB of RAM on it and I...
That county has 150 hollers and some of the houses are barely standing.
There are a lot of single wides standing on bricks.
Many have tarps for roofs.
My wife and I just got back from West Virginia last night. We had gone down to Iaeger, WV to pass out food and clothing to families in need.
Iaeger is a coal mining town whose residents took a huge...
Get a hardware fan controller
I just ordered one of these flow meters last night. I like its looks and the price was good on Newegg. (under $20.00 shipped)
Looks and plays well at those settings. Nice setup.
Another vote for the stability and reliability of the Gigabyte 990FX G1-Gaming Motherboard.
It's well worth your consideration.
No, just three and four-way SLI. Two cards will still be good to go.
Zorin OS is what I've been using.
I just installed a couple of R9-390X Toxic cards into my i7-4770K box.
I learned today that Futuremark released a new feature in their 3D-Mark Benchmark program.
It's called Stress Test, and...
I love my 120mm Cougar Vortec PWM fans. I have about 12 of them in four systems. I also have 6 of them in 140mm size.
They are quiet and powerful.
I have one PC with all Noctua fans in it. (120mm...
Same i7-4770K CPU in a new/old board. It was in a Z97 Gigabyte board and was moved to an MSI Z87 board. The i7-4790K moved from Z87 to Z97. Swapped them.
The Z87 doesn't OC quite like the Z97...
I put the i7-4770K into another system and installed a couple of R9-390X Toxic cards into it.
Results are a lot slower, as you'd expect.
Here is Firestrike ultra, and then I'll run Catzilla...
I couldn't do it. I don't have the patience.
That was the board that I ended up with too. Good features on it.
My FX-9590 was never very happy with ~any~ over-clock
but chugged along nicely at stock speeds.
My son is an engineer in...
LOL! you guys are great. (ego properly stroked)
Next, I think I'm gonna try these GTX-980Ti cards in my i5-6600K system, or just put the i7-4790K into this box and test again.
That Rosewill case looks a lot like my InWin 805 Chassis. (ahullofalot)
Title says it. Here is Catzilla results. Not bad for an old Haswell CPU.
(The Ti cards might be helping a little)
I was stuck on Dial-up for over 20 years at my home in the California mountains.
So I love these speeds even though they're nothing to write home about.
Use the GPU's fan header with a powered Fan hub and have the GPU control everything.
I won't be pulling the trigger on one anytime soon.
I just bought a second GTX-980 Windforce for one PC, and a second GTX-980Ti for another.
I still need a second Sapphire R9-390X Toxic for the...
I need one of those vinman.
The PSU is the most important part of any PC.
I like SeaSonic brand the best but I have used a few Corsair units lately. All of them have been good to me.
This is a good guide to read up on...
