  1. No it will not have support, you wont have problems because it wont be supported. Yes, but you might want to consider a 1050 w just in case ;) .

     

    Long answer. The x79 "proof of concept board " by gigabyte shows that the processor is going to be a bit bigger than a 1366 socket. Since your heat transfer plate can't grow over night, I doubt it will be supported. Not to mention that there will be 8 dim slots and they are on both sides of the cpu, so cooling ram is a bit useless.

     

    Now, there is nothing saying that is how the x79 mobo will be like that. It could be completely different. However, for the moment it isn't looking good for your cooler.

     

    Honestly though I would not upgrade to X79. It is too much money, and with ivy bridge on the way, it makes too much sense to upgrade to go with ivy bridge. Always always always go with new tech, not faster tech. As it is, a 2600K is perfectly fine for gaming and pretty much everything else. Ivy bridge will probably be overkill.

     

    If you want to compare the Extreme Sandy bridge to ivy bridge, I would go with ivy bridge every time, and I suggest you do too.

     

    thanks for the answer yeah i know ivy is on the way but i will skip ivy and run sandy bridge e until hasswell comes i think ill buy a ocz 1000w


  2. hi guys im building a new rig to replace my i7 965 rig so i have some questions i really love the performance of prolimatech genesis do you guys think that it will have x79 motherboard support and if it has do u guys think that i will have problems with that cooler fitting it on the motherboard with the ram layout of x79 motherboards and second and final question do you guys think that a pc power and cooling silencer mk II 950w is enough for a 6990 and 16 gb of ram and a haf x ?


  3. Wow both of those temps are high. What case do you have? Your GPU may not be getting enough airflow.

     

    My 6850 never idles above 35c (Load 49C)

     

    i have a therrmaltake armor+ with 5 fans two 120 mm below the 6990 one vga fan that is attached to the hard drive cage one on the back of the case and the big side panel fan


  4. so everything is fine now and 6990 is running fine so i just wanted to know my idle temps are 64c sometimes it comes down to 59c but not all the time mostly it stucks at 64c do you guys think that 64c is very high for idle temps or its ok for a 6990 considering my old 4870x2 idlled at 73c i think cooling in 6990 is far much better what do u guys think?


  5. so the little end tabs are a little bent that tuck behind the motherboard I'm guessing, Just get some pliers and bend them back straight so it will fit. My old 4870x2 had to be slapped into my case to fit because of the idiotic arrangment of the dvi ports :rolleyes:

    thanks man i could fit it bending the tabs now i have problems installing the drivers lol

  7. hi can anyone help me so i bought a new hd 6990 and my sistem specs are thermaltake armor+ dfi lanparty ut x58 6 gb mushkin i7 965 ee the problem i have that i tried to install my new hd 6990 today but i cant seem to fit the backplate to fully insert the card well becouse it seems the backplate doesnt fit in my thermaltake armor+ case anyone with a armor+ and a hd6990 that had any problem installing it?


  8. ok i have some questions about ram i have a dfi ut x58 core i7 965 extreme edition and 6 gb 1333 mhz i want to upgrade to 1600 mhz so my question ive read alot about setting the ram so far i know i have to change the dram bus voltage to 1.65 volts and put my memory timings is there another thing i have to touch to put my new ram to 1600 when i buy it ive heard about changing the memory multiplier and to raise the qpi voltage for stability? any guide to set your ram? or any of you guys tell me the steps to do it besides puting the dram bus voltage and the timings manually. thanks o and i forgot i have oc to my i7 at 3.7 ghz thats my main reason i want new ram


  9. well i currently besides my desktop i own a asus g71gx-rx05 wich haves a c2d 2.53(2.9oc) 6 gigs of ram 800 mhz nvidia gtx 260 m 17.1'' do you think the new asus g60j is worth the upgrade

     

    the g60j has the new core i7 1.73 ghz all four cores( when turbo boost is on it is 3 cores 2 ghz 2 cores 2.8 ghz 1 core 3.06) the gts 250 m (i think theres a version with the gtx 260 m) 16'' lcd and 2 hard drives of 500 gb and 4 gigs of ddr3 ram at 1066 mhz

     

    well at my perspective its not worth it first becouse of the graphic card my 260 gtx is better second the turbo boost thing doesnt convince me but i wanna hear your opinion guys what do you think its worth the upgrade or i just have to wait till the corei7 gets mature on laptops?


  10. well i have overclocked my i7 965 to 3.8 without touching any volts i think i can go to 4.0 ghz just changing the multiplier to 30 with the stock bclk of 133 mhz do u think my overclock its ok ? i think it can go to 4.0 ghz without touching any volts with my dfi ut x58 just wanted to ask you do you think my oc is ok? ive uploaded a screenshot of cpu z o and also temps go like 70 to 75c on load

  11. You can make your own. It shouldn't be too hard as you don't really need to be too savy with a soldering iron to get it done.

     

    From any of the 4 pin molex connectors coming out of the power supply, run 2 20 awg wires from them down into your side panel fan. On mine, I have a red wire coming from the yellow pins on the molex connector and a black from a black ping right beside the yellow. They run into their corresponding colors once they meet the fan connection. I would siggest going out and purchasing a Y connector for one of the molex connections and pairing the wires with it. That way, you can disconnect the fan whenever you need to.

     

    If you want, I can take a picture and show you want I mean.

     

    That aside, Thermaltake does offer the ability to order the entire side panel if I'm not mistaken.

     

    ok thanks show me becouse i was thinking maybe buy another 220mm fan and put it instead of the stock thermaltake


  12. well i got a dfi ut x58 now and a corei7 extreme edition with 6 gb of ram and a 4870x2 and its all in a tt armor+ the thing is that i put smart guardian and idle the cpu is 37c system 49c chipset 44c but when im playign the cpu goes around 40c or 42c the odd thing is that the system goes 55c and the chipset 50c so my question is are the system and chipset temps high? or it is normal to get this temps while playing the cpu is ok couse ive reaiding and the 920 goes 45 idle so my cpu temps are ok i think so are my system and chipset temps to high?


  13. Dark i did the homework for him. it's the rampage.....

     

    hey thanks for answering but what do u think about the asus rampage ii extreme against the dfi lanparty ut x58 the only thing that makes me question the asus its that it only supports 12 gb even if the rampage ii extreme has 6 slots or it will in the future support 24 gb? becouse the dfi say it supports the 24 gb in the end if the asus supports the 24 gb i will go for the asus


  14. WELL I CANT DECIDE BETWEEN AN ASUS RAMPAGE II EXTREME OR A FOXCONN BLOODRAGE BOTH ARE GREAT BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT ASUS HAS 6 SLOT OF RAM WHILE FOXCONN HAS 3 ASUS GOTS 16 PHASE POWER FOXCONN GOTS 14 PHASE POWER ASUS CAN HANDLE 12 GB OF RAM BUT I DONT KNOW WHEN THE 24 GB RAM KITS COME OUT IF THE RAMPAGE II EXTREME WILL HANDLE THEM THE FOXCON CAN HANDLE 12 GB RAM TOO BUT ONLY WHEN THE 3X4GB KITS ARE ON THE MARKET SO I NEED HELP I LOVE THESE BOARDS CANT DECIDE(ALSO I PLAN TO MAKE ANOTHER PC BUT WITH THE DFI UT X58 LANPARTY XD)
