Watched season 2 of walking dead from start -> finish (over 10 hours) today with above mentioned girlfriend

    Best Headphones?

    I currently own both the DT990s and Q701 I am running a rather high end DAC (matrix mini-i) and decent AMP for them (O2 amp) Both are very nice headphones, but i MUCH prefer the DT990s Lighter, nicer to use for long periods Better midrange MUCH better bass Smoother overall sound I find the q701s can be somewhat harsh in the high end at times, and is very lacking in low midrange -> bass
  3. Sounds about right. When removing the stock cooler, then replacing, i only replace the TIM on the core, the thermal pads are fine. Those temps seem fine, but it has been about 2 years since i had 6970s Multiple monitors always make the card idle faster and hotter (i had 4 on my 6970s)
  4. What happened to the original thermal pads? The gap is too large for thermal paste, and Arctic silver is slightly conductive/capacative, so not the best choice on GPUs
  5. I have a very large (about twice the size of a full tower) case as my primary, and a bitfenix prodigy (large ITX) as my secondary. Prefer the large case for a massive watercooled tri-gpu build, but definitely prefer lanning with the smaller one

    Vga to HDMI

    I'm actually trying to find a way to plug in the second monitor , my DVI-I is occupied by the first monitor , i can't find a VGA to DVI-D DL which won't cost me a small fortune , so yeah it leaves me with a VGA to HDMI ! Then it will work. All DVI -> VGA converters are for DL DVI->VGA, so the little dongles that you get with most (all) graphics cards these days will work

    Vga to HDMI

    So you need HDMI out from your gpu to VGA in to your monitor? That cable should work
