  1. so my z77 mobo got 775 cpu hole for older cooler,i have to remove this thing to use the 775 backplate.

    so is the 775 backplate going to give enough pressure to cpu and pin, or maybe i should put it back and get a proper 1155 cooler instead....still testing the temps but i'm seeing good results


    idle 30c load p95 50c max 1 hour

    ambient 26-29c



    asrock z77 pro4-m

    3570k @ stock

    cooler master v8

  2. Could always downsize a little more and go mITX

    actually my idea was to go itx but looking the size of the prodigy next to SG09 makes me think otherwise... the prodigy is bigger even if i remove the feet and handles 


    I have actually put a 7970 6 gig model in my current ITX build using a Node 304 case.

    i wish node 304 is available for sale here,i will definitely go the itx route


    I built a system a little while back with the extreme4-m and it's been running fine though I just have a modest oc (4.4ghz) on my 3770k. Though looking at the specs, it looks like the Fatil1ty-m has better caps and cooling. Probibly a better OC'er, then again it all depends on how far you plan on taking the oc and what kind of cooling your going to put on it.

     got all the parts i needed decided to go cheap and get z77 pro4-m instead though i'm having second thought right now whether i should return this and get the fatality, the board look so cheap and flimsy. i'm going to use this system for at least 4 years and oc it when it starts to get slow....what do you guys think?return it and get the fatality, or maybe a few years down the road i can get a used one of ebay or somewhere

  3. Why don't ya wait for price drops :D

    i don't think there is going to be a price drop not here...i still remember seeing a local store selling a p67 board at retail price :whoa: WTF, p67 was like 2 years ago. . retailer here is greedy they rather have the parts collecting dust on the shelf than selling it at a lower price. 


    anyway i want to update the issue on the motherboard, after doing some research it looks like the extreme4 is merely a pro4 with different caps and heatsink and colour scheme... when you look carefully all the component layout is the same just with different color, and there is issue with cpu throttling down when the heatsink is overheated during overclock

  4. just like the topic say, i'm going to build a small gaming pc in  SG09 casing cause i need more space on my desk for some other things so here is the part i have listed and some part from my old pc


    new parts


    3570K( finally going intel after 10 year with amd)

    Asrock z77 extreme4-m or z77 fatal1ty pro-m

    Silverstone SG09

    128gb ssd


    old parts


    gigabyte 7970

    8gb corsair vengeance 1600

    cooler master v8

    enermax naxn 750 watt( i'm going to sleeve this)

    1tb WD black


    so here is the problem, i can decide whether i should get the extreme4 or  the fatal1ty. or maybe i should just skip the midrange and get something cheaper like z77 pro4-m. the reason i don't include other brand is because only asrock board offer 775 mounting hole so i don't have to buy a new cooler. i'm trying to keep the budget as low as posibble.


    no haswell for me, i'm sick of waitng and even if it's coming out next month motherboard selection is going to be thin with only low end stuff on micro atx form




  5. i'm going to buy a new ssd for my build so i need some help selecting which ssd i should buy, i have compiled this list of ssd available here in my country from cheapest going up until my credit limit


    kingston v300(cheapest)

    plextor m5s

    kingston v+200

    corsair F3

    intel 330

    kingston hyperx 3k

    intel 520

    kingston hyperx

    corsair FGS( priciest )


    the capacity is 120/128GB, so which one i should get? i'm really a noob :doh: when it come to ssd so i just wanna to get the best performance/price ssd

  6. i think my cpu is really limiting the potential of my 7970, so should i get a thuban? i would like to get 8350 but asus haven't release a bios update for piledriver, even bulldozer bios is still beta... the guys at oc.net say it will work but with some minor issue so what do you guys suggest? get a thuban and call it a day or get 8350 and tackle out the issue ( not minor though, after reading a few post there is quite some issue that need attention such as system won't post with ddr speed above 1600,cnq not working etc)




    here is my rig

  7. hi guys, i just installed Star Wars Knight Of The Old Republic game but i'm getting average 25-30 fps and sometimes even lower with my on board HD3300, 8 years ago i get at least 50-60fps out of my old P4 and geforce 4Ti....is this some sort of a driver issue or just some setting problem? i have tried running it in all windows compatibility mode and it's still the same :down:

  8. Hey there , recently my top 200mm fan has been making a rattling\grinding noise , so i decided instead of replacing the whole case to replace the top fan , seemed like the smart choice :P so , could you guys recommend a replacement for my 200mm fan ? or would it be better to switch for 2x120mm? thank you all in advance!


    just buy the cooler master mega flow 200, it's the stock fan that come with the case...it cheap and readily available, if you don't mind the extra noise the the storm force 200 is better but remember it's built for storm sniper case so the fan led will need auxiliary power don't connect it directly to your led switch or it will fry the switch

  10. Nothing wrong with leadtec, i have seen lots of their professional/workstation GPUs around, not so much gaming cards, but they are still good cards



    For $360 ill get you to buy three for me and ship them here :evilgrin:


    i wish i can afford the 670 but i have to wait till they come out with 660ti. 360$ is cheap but still way out of my budget :cry: i'm curios as where the re-seller got their stock here cause it looks like both 680 and 690 is available here and alot with 670 stock way of the roof while i heard that in other country re-seller are always out of stock when it come 680/690. there is even one guy in our local forum who tell her wife to buy gtx690 for quad sli but she buy 4 gtx690 instead which is totally crazy :whoa:


    there is only 3 unit left anyway cause 1 is bought by his friend

  11. should i buy a leadtek card if its cheaper than other brand? i mean a reference leadtek gtx670 here cost only 360$ while other gtx670 is for sale around 420$-450$. i'm still waiting for their gtx660ti price to see if it's cheaper cause if it's less by 20$ or 30$ i'm going to buy one

  12. I know this is a silly question but what is the maximum wattage for fan headers on a typical mobo? since nowadays fans are getting faster and bigger and sleeved Y cable selling around for cheap is it posibble to fry your board's circuitry by putting too much fan on it? while most user will opted to use a fan controller there is still some like me who like to use internal header so fans can be controlled via software

  13. That review is atrocious (and breaks NDA). Just reading the first page made me vow never to visit Tweaktown again.


    well i was just browsing around the net when i found out about it, but after what they did with 670 last time it's amazing why Nvidia still not taking any action and let this happen again
