Oops...

 

 

Watched season 2 of walking dead from start -> finish (over 10 hours) today with above mentioned girlfriend




#2078624 Best Headphones?

Posted by Muchoman1 on 28 February 2013 - 08:01 PM in Audio Hardware

I currently own both the DT990s and Q701

 

I am running a rather high end DAC (matrix mini-i) and decent AMP for them (O2 amp)

 

Both are very nice headphones, but i MUCH prefer the DT990s

 

 

Lighter, nicer to use for long periods

Better midrange 

MUCH better bass

Smoother overall sound

I find the q701s can be somewhat harsh in the high end at times, and is very lacking in low midrange -> bass




#2077481 Uninstalling and Reinstalling Radeon HD 6970 heatsink

Posted by Muchoman1 on 20 February 2013 - 08:15 AM in Video Cards and Monitors

Sounds about right.

When removing the stock cooler, then replacing, i only replace the TIM on the core, the thermal pads are fine.

Those temps seem fine, but it has been about 2 years since i had 6970s

 

Multiple monitors always make the card idle faster and hotter (i had 4 on my 6970s)




#2077476 Uninstalling and Reinstalling Radeon HD 6970 heatsink

What happened to the original thermal pads?


The gap is too large for thermal paste, and Arctic silver is slightly conductive/capacative, so not the best choice on GPUs 




#2077454 What is your preferred case size?

Posted by Muchoman1 on 20 February 2013 - 05:24 AM in Cases, Power Supplies and Modding

I have a very large (about twice the size of a full tower) case as my primary, and a bitfenix prodigy (large ITX) as my secondary. 

 

Prefer the large case for a massive watercooled tri-gpu build, but definitely prefer lanning with the smaller one

#2074940 Vga to HDMI

Posted by Muchoman1 on 02 February 2013 - 02:20 AM in Video Cards and Monitors

 

So you need HDMI out from your gpu to VGA in to your monitor?

 

That cable should work

I'm actually trying to find a way to plug in the second monitor , my DVI-I is occupied by the first monitor ,  i can't find a VGA to DVI-D DL which won't cost me a small fortune , so yeah it leaves me with a VGA to HDMI !

 

 

Then it will work.

 

All DVI -> VGA converters are for DL DVI->VGA, so the little dongles that you get with most (all) graphics cards these days will work

Posted by Muchoman1 on 29 January 2013 - 09:45 PM in OCC Weekly Polls

 

Because why not


The best reason to upgrade, ever

 

 

Always.

 

was too easy to get all three of my 670s to 1300+mhz boost, got so much PSU (1500w) and cooling (8x120mm rad) that i wanted something more challenging.
