  1. For a good CPU/Mobo Combo. Here are the particulars; I am currently running a 980x in a Rampage 3 Extreme (See sig). I have recently purchased 2xMSI R9 290's, as I have a gaming habit. I am running into issues with the pcix 2.0 not being able to handle the xfire data transfer (or at least I've tried everything else to fix my problems that I know of) and am going to have to move to something newer. I have a decent soundcard (X-Fi Fatality) and a budget of around $600 (somewhat flexible). I do not plan on OC'ing this thing to the moon, but if there is a simple automatic bios setting (like on my Rampage) I will probably set it as high as it will go. Thanks!

    Lawl. Bosco, why didn't you say something, dude? Let me chat with my guy, he may be interested in that. I love this board.

    WOW. Nice, thank you, Bosco.

    Korean 27" 2560x1440 monitors -

    After reading this and the thread on OC.net, I purchased a Qnix Matte version from Hulustar on Ebay. Got it in 5 days, and the thing was perfect, out of the box. This monitor is, in my opinion, the best 300 dollar upgrade I have spent on my computer in a LONG time. Just very sharp.

    Excellent, thanks Gents.

    If it will game on all three, so much the better. He would AT LEAST want it to run three screens while gaming on one of them.

    Can the 7950 run three screens? If not, what would I need to make that work?
  8. Ok team, looking at options for a buddy of mine. He currently has an Asus 6850, and is looking to upgrade. Budget is 300 or less. would he be better suited buying something new, or getting another 6850 for cross fire? Also, he is using a ASRock 970 Extreme3 mobo, any conflicts with that? Thanks in advance...

    Help OC'ing new system i7-3770k

    Honestly, I would suggest that I would return it to them rather than accept that compromise. If a place is willing to take the hardline about something this minor, I don;t know that I would want to deal with them. Mind if I ask where you purchased?

    Agreed. Tell them you would be happy to accept the upgrade at no cost if they are out of what they promised you initially. Explain to them that you asked for what you wanted for a reason, and it was understood that they would be providing what you had agreed upon, and as such, they are in default, so to speak, of that agreement. If there is any argument at all that "$25 isn't that much", I would then suggest that in that case, it wouldn't cost them that much to keep their customer (you) happy.

    Hey!

    Valkyrie needs Cable Managemnt, Badly! Welcome, homie. Possible to tuck those wires behind the mobo? Not just for looks, it will help with the airflow as well.
  12. I agree with those above, but tell me this, what case do you have this in?

    i7 980x, Still awesome?

    No, actually, though I understand you thinking that as my post was pretty misleading. I am using a corsair H100 on it, so, it is still "under water". I used to have a custom H2O setup that covered it and the 2 MSI 480's I had before. Had a reservoir from FrozenQ as well, looked really cool. I don't think I have ever actually had it air cooled. Used an h50 before (when I first purchased it) EDIT: Pics of the old beast...

    :-) When smart people tell me I'm doing something right, that feelsgoodman.jpg Back in the dizzle, we bought one of the xeon hex chips as well. That thing was a beast in OC'ing. I have had the 980x up to 4.9 under water. It does so well OC'ed, it blows my mind how stable and strong it has been. Obviously, it cost a mint, so feeling like you got your money's worth is a pretty big deal. Been kicking around with the idea of moving to 780's in the next 6 months or so....this stuff is so addictive.

    i7 980x, Still awesome?

    Thanks for the responses. Trust me, if I were ever to sell it, I wouldn't be looking to gouge anyone. The Kraken still clicks along and rolls over pretty much anything I put in front of it, so it's not a necessity thing. Ah, crap, I just realized my sig doesn't have my specs in it anymore....OK, here goes... Intel i7 980x @ 4.7ghz 18 GB Corsair Dominator RAM Corsair p128 SSD 2x MSI GTX580 X-treme edition (The neat ones with 5gb's of mem and the color changing fans that no one ever sees) Fatal1ty soundcard (can't remember which one) ASUS ROG Rampage 3 extreme mobo It was a real monster back when I built it in late 2010, won a few contests with it and such. Had a radeon 5970 in it back then. Pretty much all I do with it is game and deal with emails re: work. I do love me some games, though.
