quote VeGiTAX2Spent an hour playing cable ninja. Ended up with this for now.
Side fan throwing up air is a 250mm Antec tri-color on random mode so it makes a variety of cool colors.
Lighting is done via BitFenix LED aqua strip. It is pretty friggin bright too. That was the backlight for the LCD I was working on. Was being the keyword, the IC that connects to the LCD panel fried on me so it's dead project unless I replace that board and the ribbons to the panel itself. >_<
quote banies12Did a similar approach actually. Had a 9600BE for a bit (those were buggy as hell) then AMD swapped for a 9750 and then I bought a B93 that I overclocked to 3.8 for like 49 and then I opted to the FX-8320 which has actually served me well alongside my R9 290 DirectCU (same spec as the 290X 1000)Pretty much, when I upgrade after this I'm going Intel finally. With the 960T at $99 it's an instant upgrade from the 9750 I have right now. Disappointing though, was always fun to see these guys swinging back and fourth at each other with new designs.
quote Ren of HeavensFury X has complicated my plans somewhat, I was expecting a triple fan option as well as the water cooled but it didn't materialise. My case will either need modding some more to take a 120mm rad, replacing, or drop down to the regular air cooled Fury =\Merry 2015 everyone
AMD 390X needs to hurry up, can't take my 5830 much longer.
quote Tommy VercettiHey guys! Recently my laptop has decided to over heat constanly, and it's ages old. I could easily just reapply thermal paste, but nah. It's about time I get something much more powerful.
So I was looking on eBay for CPUs and came across the Xeon X5650. Six Cores and it runs at 2.5 GHz I believe. They were released in 2010, and they're overclockable. I plan on buying two and running them on a dual CPU motherboard and use the PC for 3D animation or just messing around in Source, and Unreal Engine. The other reason of course is gaming. I know that's having 12 cores will be a bottleneck and I won't see 500FPS even with the highest end GPU.
Do you guys think it's worth it for just the workstation side? I mean I could get both CPUs for around $150 on eBay.
