Someone more familiar with BF3 should be able to tell you how to disable it temporarily...

I like Onion but I really think this is a terrible idea.

Not by accident. By evolution.
+1 on all of that!..
edit: @ xPeter......have you ever studied science?...look at the complexity of earth....do you think that just HAPPENED to be made...like by accident....or even Man made?????
or is there someone(God).. up there...with a purpose..

Agreed. I don't follow any particular religion's moral code...I'm just not an asshole.
That's just called not being a dick.

You assume I am what?
I assume you are. Wait, there is no assuming there. You act like you own a core i7 and every other piece of hardware. Thats the difference between you and me. I do. So lets agree on that.
You pop into threads and post some condescending remark without even understanding what you're responding to. If you think that's okay...I don't know what to tell you.

And in games they'll perform imperceptibly different.
I hope its reality, then I can get a GK110 for little more than my launch-day 7970

CPUs are sensitive to static...
You do not need a static bag.

I see nothing in your logic that makes sense. It doesn't have to be a power hog to be high end.
They're GK104. The GTX670 specs have been released and its only got one SLI finger - Just like the GTX560 Ti has one finger - more evidence that the 680 is the GTX570 successor and is mid range in the Kepler series. They may appear high-end since AMD's high end card is beaten by it but doesnt take away the fact that Nvidia intended the 680 to be mid range but are now milking the market as any company would.
Even the PCB screams mid range, the 7970 has a far better PCB. The 680 only has 5 phase power, 256bit (common on mid range cards) and dual 6 pin connectors. The mem bandwidth on the 680 only matches the 580 mem bandwidth at 192Gb, a far cry from the 264Gb/s of the 7970. The GK110 is the GTX580 succesor with probably more phases, 8+6pin and at least 384bit.
What's next, claiming that AMD CPUs are better because they use more power?

1000$ for basically 2 mid-ranged gpus. I find that ridiculous really.
They aren't mid range. They're the fastest GPUs you can buy.

OCC can now be added to his list of banned sites. Its guys like him on the net that really hurts forums and I personally can't stand that sort of attitude.
He is now longer welcomed here at OCC and was banned by me personally.

So yeah, a single thick radiator like the RX360 with push/pull fans will probably be more than enough for a CPU and a pair of GPUs.
Posted by Waco on 23 April 2012 - 10:47 AM
My HAF 932 easily fits a thick radiator (XSPC RX360) with 25mm fans in push/pull at the top of the case. You'll sacrifice the top two 5.25" bays, but who actually uses them anyway? This is a pic of my old setup, but the radiator is still in the same place:
EDIT: To keep costs down you might consider one of these two: http://www.frozencpu...30c95s161#blank and http://www.frozencpu...l?tl=g30c95s161

This. The 4870X2 launched a LONG time before the 4890 came out.
But the HD 4870x2 released months (nearly a full year) before the HD 4890 ever came out.
Nyt's probably too young to remember that though. I bought my first 4870X2 on launch day.
Posted by Waco on 21 April 2012 - 05:03 PM
Why do you say that? The 7970 and 680 are neck and neck in nearly everything. I have no doubt that the "7970X2" and the "680X2" will be roughly comparable as well.
Does AMD even need to release a 7990 now?? They're beat before they even release it lol

Could you PM me a few pictures of a Red/Black rig next to a different colored set-up? They can be seperate photos, I'm just curious how different your rigs look by color. I have the white phantom, with blue fans, and a lot of black/blue internals. So i'm working with White/Blue, and black trim basically. And I've been curious about how it would look if I painted it black and red instead (not just the case, also my heatsinks, PSU, etc.. Anything that can be spray painted.)
Here's one of the few shots I have of both my and BluePanda's old setups (sorry for the crappy picture, it's from my old cell phone):

I'm not sure I'd spray paint any heatsinks since it'll hurt thermal conductivity. Your PSU would obviously be out of warranty if you painted it too.
