Thanks a ton for the input. I've been out of the GPU scene for a while. I only wanted the 950 for the HDCP 2.2 and HDMi 2.0 ... so i can get 4k @ 60hz. Not a big gamer anymore, and the SLI 580 are still plenty for my needs. I might actually add another 950 or wait until more cards with hdcp 2.2 and hdmi 2 are released. I almost went with the 960, but the extra $100 just didnt seem worth in in the value VS performance. Especially since i just dropped $8K on two 4K tv's,...
I cant believe no one has any thoughts on this.. like "no it's a stupid waste' or "go for it, the benefit is minimal but you've got the hardware" .. or even "that is a great idea and well worth installing it... This forum used to be alive and active...
please? Lierally building right now and curious if i should bother with a dedicated physics or just wait and SLI a 950 if i ever feel like it. Real 4k gaming is out of my leage atm. I need a new AVR first.
Background- i have a 2600K @ 5 GHz on air from launch @ 1.39 volt, speed step and hyper-threading enabled. That rig has SLi 580s. It's been a work house. This rig was also used as a HTPC before i switched to Tivo... which was a drastic improvment. I also have a HTPC, haswell i5, 16GB of ram and a GTX960. Since i switched to Tivo dont use the HTPc nearl as much, instead letting the Samsung/Tivo handle everything Well since i just bought two new 65" Samsung UHD TV's...
well looks like a lost the chip lottery with tihs 4670K. Wont even make it to desktop 4.5ghz @ 1.25 Good thing this is just a htpc but it is a little disappointing that my 2.5 year old 2600K @ 5g will be faster lol.
Got it finished screen shot windows 7 image hosting imgur screenshot pc Now i can see how this haswell chip OC. Think i might end up ditching the h60 for a d14.
My biggest complaint about this case is the lack of spots for cable ties...needs way more holes to anchor cables for a clean install. I should have looked and drilled some before I installed the mobo :-(
I wish I had known slim optical dives need a special sata power adapter when I was ordering parts... learn something every build
But 3 92mm fans should work on the side without problems right?Just want to check before I order some noctua.
Just ordered for a new SG10 HTPC build: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 i5-4670K Corsair H60 EVGA GTX 660 SC 2GB Seasonic SS-660XP2 16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory Toshiba TS-T633C 8X Slotload DVD+/-RW Going to reuse a intel 510 SSD and a Seagate 3tb drive I have from upgrading my 650D build. What do you think?
