Gaming Rig - SLI GTX460 Hawk

Recommended Posts

@Locutus: in my opinion, which is the same than yours, DFI was the best mobo manufacturer for overclocking and gaming purposes. :)

 

I also wondered why they stopped building new LanParty mobos, I just think that they never sold the number of mobos they expected... just because they were not as known as Asus or MSI or Gigabyte... :unsure:

 

@Owenisbad: okay, thanks for the feedback :) I think I'll buy a G500 :)

 

Talking about the temps I get with my GTX460s, I think you mean the temperatures, well, with the Twin Frozr 2 cooling system, I get 75 ° C (167 ° F) with the top video card, when the system is fully charged, when running a game for example, and I never exceed 65 ° C (149 ° F) with the video card which is at the bottom, in the same situation, when playing a game for example. :)

Yeah sorry I did mean temperatures, and yours are great! :thumbsup: I thought it might be more like 90c in games haha. I really want to get a crossfire or sli setup at some point, just don't have the money at the moment :P

@cery25: nope bro, in fact, I love playing on a clean desk :) so it's almost always clean :P

 

@GoLLuM13: Your SLI GTX470 from Asus, is it the DirectCu version ?

 

@Owenisbad: haha yeah I see, the only way to get more than 90 ° C with my hotter graphics card (the one at the top) is to run a FurMark benchmark. :lol:

 

Wait a moment, I'm gonna run one to show you guys, it's the only benchmark which is able to make my computer crash :lol:

 

edit: okay guys, I just ran a FurMark, and I managed to reach 93 ° C :ph34r: (200 ° F for American people) ! As I said it's the only benchmark which is able to make my computer warm that much, and sometimes, it can also make it crash :lol:

 

Look at the pic below :)

i wished it was DCU but the custom models are very rare, i think there's only MSI and Gigabyte who made a custom model, Asus just abandoned the 465 / 470 and 480 :down:

okay. let's wait for the GTX6XX series now :evilgrin:

 

I had a project before, I wanted to buy a GTX580 instead of my GTX460s, but I cancelled it.. in fact, the cost of a GTX580 would have been much more expansive, compared to the cost of my GTX460s :) regarding the performances, they are roughly the same, so I didn't hesitate...

initially i was going to do the same, but stock rupture of GTX460 and like you know i can't wait with my geographical situation, so i took a 470 than the other for my birthday :P

the only thing that disappoints me, noise and heat especially the night :lol:

omg my computer is very noisy, especially when I'm playing! Because all my fans runs at their maximum speed, it's really annoying and almost unbearable if I don't use a headset or if I don't increase the sound volume :whistling:

 

talking about the heat, the GTX470 is a graphics card which is very known for its heat, unfortunately :whistling:

the project is to watercool them, but you know the events, and i stayed with the air, next time (if there's a next time :lol: ) i'll forget W/C and will base only on a good custom model Twin Frozr or SuperOverclock :thumbsup:
