  1. Unless anyone knows of a waterblock that will do both the gpu and ram etc
  2. Just got this card.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?gclid=CPX9-Jfvmr0CFaN9OgodbykAMQ&Item=N82E16814125463 Found out I can't get a water block for this card so I am selling it to get a card with a reference cooler so I can put a full water block on it. Has been used for less then 2 hours.
  3. I am building a new water cooled rig. I am using the latest LGA1150 socket. I want something that is going to last, high quality, supports SLI and doesn't break the bank. I have a few options here that might give you an idea as to where I am going with this.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=-1&IsNodeId=1&Description=GIGABYTE%20G1.Sniper%205%20LGA&bop=And&CompareItemList=-1%7C13-131-976%5E13-131-976-TS%2C13-128-681%5E13-128-681-TS%2C13-131-989%5E13-131-989-TS%2C13-157-380%5E13-157-380-TS%2C13-128-595%5E13-128-595-TS&percm=13-128-595%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24 I will be doing SLI in my water cooled setup. Here is a list of my parts so far. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=18951149
  4. Okay, I said screw it. If I am building this computer, I am putting what I want in it and I am only doing it once! So, I am getting a 4GB 780.. Now onto the motherboard.. I have these two picked out.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%2050001314%2050001315%20600438202&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=280%7C13-132-038%5E13-132-038-TS%2C13-128-595%5E13-128-595-TS&percm=13-132-038%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24%3B13-128-593%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24%3B13-128-595%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24%3B13-128-596%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24%3B13-131-976%3A%24%24%24%24%24%24%24 1st is a Asus Maximus VI Formula 2nd is a Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 Both are roughly 299.00. The gigabyte is 294 after 100 MIR.
  5. Yeah, I may end up grabbing a 4GB card instead. Why would you get the G1.Sniper over the ASRock? There are some more "features" on the ASRock, but it's a brand that I know has some quality control issues many years back. Sort of like a Hyundai 10 years ago.

  7. True.. I may get the bigger 4 Gb card. I am just bouncing between what mobo to actually get.. Currently, I am leaning toward this.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157371

    I...I think it's time for a 30"

    I love my Dell 30" screen. I can never go back to anything smaller.

    Occ Malware warning?

    Yeah, our Cisco ASA5585 CXSSP10 is blocking that ad (at work).
  10. So here is my dilemma, I have a Antec 1200 case. I don't like it. I wan't a case with a nice window, high quality, something that will fit a nice sized water cooling system with a reservoir. I think I want to try open loop but I need suggestions on a case. I like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119260 but I don't know if it is big enough I love this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119252 But it doesn't have a window. I have been burned by getting some of the off brand cases because they fit the need, only to find that the cases are crap and full of cheep crap. Any suggestions would be stupendous!
  11. Great find with the window.... Hmm. decision decision..
  12. My ATI 5870 is starting to artifact badly. I reapplied some thermal compound and it improved a little bit, but I think it's time to upgrade anyway. Any suggestions that are equivalent or a lot better than the 5870, I have been out of the loop for a while so any advice would be appreciated. I am looking to spend <$500. Thanks
  13. How is NZXT as a brand? I am use to high quality stuff from Cooler Master or other various brands. I had an experience with a NZXT case and it was very poorly made.
  14. I ended up getting a 780 with 4 GB of memory.. My credit card disapproves.. but my brain said YES!
  15. I actually prefer nvidia. I only have the ATI because at the time it was the best card you could buy for the price. I am interested in that GTX 770. As long as I can still play Crysis 3 at 2560x1600 at max resolution, i'm all game!

    What car to BUY?

    I live in upstate NY, we get a fair amount of snow (usually); although this year we didn't have much. I am torn between the cheeper 22,000 dollar MS3 or the 25800 dollar WRX. Does anyone have any experience with them? I am trying to sell my 2010 Nissan Maxima. It only has 17,000 miles but I want a more sporty car and these are the two I have chosen to look at. Thanks
  17. So, what color bike should I get..
  18. asus

    What color bike should I get?

    They have an all black color too.. no monster logo.. I wonder if I could just get the seat? That would be sweet.

    What color bike should I get?

    Geez.. now its a tie.!
  20. asus

    What color bike should I get?

    I do like the black one.. the green one is interesting..
  21. If I have this table.. CREATE TABLE serial_numbers ( serial_id int not null auto_increment, software_id int not null, PRIMARY KEY(serial_id, software_id), user_id int not null, serial_num VARCHAR(60), FOREIGN KEY (user_id) REFERENCES USERS(user_id), FOREIGN KEY (software_id) REFERENCES SOFTWARE(software_id)); I would expect this command to fail INSERT INTO serial_numbers (software_id, user_id, serial_num) VALUES ('NULL', '823', '28sdl-38ls83,k83093e'); But it just gives a warning, and nothing more. In oracle this would not let you insert the data.. but mysql it goes in just fine. I dont want to let that happen; if the entity is set to not null, then I expect it to fail. Any ideas?

    ATI 5870 not working well

    Well after getting rid of my ASUS card, I got a XFX 5870 as many of you may know from the other thread.. after replacing the cable, doing a clean install of windows 7, using the lastest and beta drivers from ATI.. I get blue lines on the screen now.. here is a video.. BTW they does not happen on a smaller 17 in monitor that I have.. only on my 30 in.. but it does not happen with any other video card I own..
  23. My new 5870 video card tents to display lots of blue dots when playing a blu ray, or any type of video or sometimes just randomly on the desktop or anything with dark color. I am using windows 7 x64 and the latest drivers. I have an intel core i7 with no o/c. Ive installed the beta drivers, no love (back to the current release drivers). I have a image that may help. BTW the blue dots kinda flash on and off. This is with anything.. except games.. or maybe I just dont notice it. Ive installed and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers.. Any ideas?
  24. I have had problems with 2 ATI 5870's so I am going to head over to nvidia again. Please advise me with a comparable solution "nvidia style". Im looking to spend around 400 -425. Thanks
