  1. I ran a i7 950 on a Asus rampage 3 extreme board for years, they are rather hard to find and pretty pricey. Ran my 950 at 4.5Ghz year round and during winter was able to hit 4.9GHz for benchmarks. Ran it for a few years then put it on the shelf for 2-3 years. Once i put back in service i replaced it with a X5690 but could only get my ram to run at 1333Mhz instead of 1600MHz, i was also only able to hit 4.0GHz on it but i didnt expect more since i moved for a 4 core 8 thread to a 6 core 12 thread. I them moved to a i7 980x which allowed me to get my ram speed back up and it also OC'd to 4.2GHz. A quick ebay search for Asus x58 boards is showing around $150 and up for a used one. At that point you could pick one of these up. I have one as my home server with a LSI megaraid 16 card. The only issue is there is not storage space inside that case, I 3d printed my own drive rack and just have the drives sitting on a shelf in my server rack. You can also pick up a used LSI megaraid 8 port card for around $30 and attach 8 drives. I picked on up to run a 4x6tb raid 5 and 4x256 ssd raid 0 as a scratch drive in my home computer.
  2. GPU support Its not the prettiest thing in the world but i use one of these to support 3 GTX 780 Ti's in my work computer
  3. Looks interesting, Prelim score is 3640 but I'm Teamviewered home to my computer and i know there is all sorts of background crap running right now, also hasn't been restarted in a long time. But i7 8700k @ 5.1GHz 3640 so little update, forgot i had my AVX offset put at 3 so while that CPU-z shows 5.1GHZ it actually ran at 4.8GHz. So running with AVX turned off and a true 5.1Ghz i pulled a 3973
  4. Ive had it running on that with multiple runs in Fire strike, time spy, and heaven benchmarks without issues.
  5. My RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra on the stock air cooler does pretty well. The power target slider goes up to 124 but you can type 130 in there and hit enter and it will take it even if the slider doesnt go that far. Even at stock setting the card will Boost to 1988MHz on the GPU by itself far exceeding the stock 1755 MHz boost clocks they state on the webpage With the power target set to 130% and both the voltage and cpu temp set to max i can do +1450 on memory and +120 on GPU clock. Temps max out around 65*c at 100% fan.
  6. We're on the Indiana/Michigan border so we get some pretty cold temps... probably not as bad or as long as Minnesota, but he have two of the dome hikvision cams outside covering the parking lot. Been out there for almost 4 years now and haven't had a single issue with them. One of them was in cased in ice this year by a clogged gutter and still seems to be doing fine.
  7. We use these at work https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M1EMS52/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1with a PoE switch that runs back to a local computer running Blue Iris. Right now i have 9 cameras running with another 4 to add. I have it set so each camera dumps a photo to its own folder whenever there is motion on the screen. Then i use a program called Remove old files that is set up to delete the pictures once they hit 2 weeks old.
  8. Yeah the X58's are a blast to OC, still running my Asus R3E board at work. Swapped out the 950 to a 980x this year (F'ing xeons will not boot on this board) running a 29 x 147 for 4.2Ghz with 24Gb ram 1770mhz 9-11-11-31 2T and 4 GTX 670 Superclock+ cards. The newer gens are so boring to OC, move multiplier to 45 change voltage a little BOOM 4.5Ghz. You actually had to try back in the X58 days and before.
  9. 29er? I love mine. I should take it out more often but most of the time there's good weather I take the motorcycle out lol. It's a Superfly 100 AL I bought about 4 years ago. Nice bike Yeah mines a 29er hard tail in roarange (wont be missing me on the trail), all superfly's are hard tails now. You must have gotten one of the last years that they made soft tails. Went and saw my bike Friday, the rack doesnt come in till Tuesday so there is no way for me to get the bike home right now
  10. Picked up a new Trek Superfly5 bike and Yakima rack for my car, ready for some good weather to come now.
  11. Picked up a raspberry pi 3 and an Asus Tinker board today. Will see what i can make out of them, have 1300 Nes roms and 1500 Snes roms so thinking a nice little Nintendo emulator machine.
  12. lol once again my X58 board is not like the rest of them, i cant even get a xeon to post on it. Having some issues with the new ram and OC'ing ended up moving down to 28x159 4.46Ghz in turn dropping my ram down to 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24. And according to CPU-z for 1600Mhz they should be running at 11-11-11-52 Ive never heard of a tRAS 52 before. The only issue i have with that ram is the color, everything on my build is black and red.
  13. Well the board maxes out at 24gb so im not sure if it would take 3x8GB or has to be 6x4GB, ether way to get new Crucial ram would be $260 and this computer just isn't worth it. If im going to drop anymore money on it it will be to replace the 670's with 970's since the waterblocks will fit both.
  14. You cant buy and good ddr3 ram anymore with good timings, the old ram i had was 1600Mhz 6-8-6-24 6*2GB that would overclock great but i needed more then 12GB. The few kits i could find were 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 6*4GB or the kit i bought 2133Mhz 11-13-13-31 which is now running at 1840Mhz 10-11-11-24. Ive now managed to get the a 4.45Ghz 29*153 @ 1.318v, with the jump from 152 to 153 i had to bump the ram to a CL10. Cl9 must have been really close to failing on 152 block, everything seemed just slightly sluggish. Once i moved to block 153 and cl10 everything became very snappy. So far im very happy with the 980x it seems to be happy with a 4.45Ghz OC and with a 50% load bounced around 45-51*c will have to see if i can match my 950's 4.62Ghz OC
