Hey guys I have a problem setting up my speakers :S
I have Logitech G51 so only the 3 normal analog cables.
so yea most of the stuff is for 2 speakers and I like only hear from the center and sometimes from the others ....
on my other pc (with the Gigabyte 890FXA UD5 ) I had an option to chose as what to use each thing I connect to the back ...
so like on each of the 3 cables I had the option to make them all work like the same thing and it was fine no surround but at least I could use all of my speakers....
and only like 5% of all the stuff I listen has 5.1 ....
ohh and if it matters I'm usually using VLC

And the Fan/Rad/Fan combo = 25mm/30mm
{Antec claims it's 27mm btw}/25mm = 80mm ... So why do you need ANY kind of shroud inbetween ? I don't get that part ?

As for reducing vibrations, they make these Silicone Anti-Vibration Kits you could try.
The shroud is needed to eliminate the dead spot in the middle of the rad, where the fans motor is. Ive read here in some watercooling topics, that it helps 3-4°C.
Is that silicon frame any good? I mean, even if i put that on a fan, it will be still connected with a metal screw to the case, so... it does not sound logical, that it would eliminate any vibrations.

Seriously, the User Manual states ... "Due to CPU behavior, DDR3 2200/2000/1800 MHz memory will run at DDR3 2133/1866/1600 MHz frequency as default" ... so unless you really bump up the frequency or overclock your RAM doesn't that negate much of a boost ? I don't know, I am asking ... That plus the price difference is why I think most of us just stuck with 1600 MHz ? or am I clueless here

Also I did up a fairly detailed listing of most of the common RAM choices MOST of us are using on the MaximusIVGeneZ68 ... see MY Post #2042
{I updated it to include the HEIGHT of the RAM also}.
what that just means is if you enable xmp, instead of defaulting to it's specs (2200MHz) it will default to 2133 due to sandy bridge cpu behavior. All you have to do is bump up blck to 103.2 and you'll have your 2200MHz.

600 dollars for ram is very pricey... i wouldn't buy it unless it was required of me to do so for work/school

EDIT: difference between 1600MHz and 2200MHz is substantial when it comes to benches... imo it will be substantial enough to notice in OS and in games.. you will notice things are a little snappier in OS, and fps will increase a few fps

Ah, I see what happened, my picture was hosted on my website, which I was in the process of moving. Was wondering why I wasn't on the list .

Will upload again whenever I get home in the next few days.

OK LocutusH ... how about getting something like this Nexus Beamair and cutting out the extension honeycomb grid part ... it's 22mm and if you cut that 1/2 off 11mm
... so 25mm / 11mm / 27mm / 25mm = 78mm and you've got your clearance.

I got the silicon things on a couple of my case fans, and yeah they dampen the noise/vibration of the fan against the metal case. They do seem to work IMO. But it would add another 1mm or 2 ?

Very nice! Really good wiring job!
Now there's room for another 6950!

For moderate (ie 4.2 or 4.6) there is a single setting that will do that for you. If you want more than 4.6, you will need more time to play with many settings and test over and over for stability.

Still trying to find a good 24/7 clock for the cpu, so far it looks like i can run at 4.8ghz'ish on about 1.38v with temps in the low 60's - prime95.

some pics:

....



specs are in my sig below....
awesome build you have there glide. Do you have any more pictures ? would be great.

Or maybe a worklog somewhere? I'm planning a nearly identical buid
post #2499 of 7112
Hello everyone, i'm new to the forum and would like to ask for some advise hehe. i'm building a new pc. i dont have much cash so i am buying the items 1at a time.
this is what i have bought atm:

CPU, intel i5-2500k
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

PSU, Corsair HX750
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139010

Gamepad, Logitech G-13
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...logitech%20g13

My next step will be the motherboard and the case, these are my current choices

MOBO, Asus Maximus IV gene-z
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131759

Case, NZXT Phantom
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146066

What i like about the mobo its that it fits my needs, this pc is purely for gaming, this seems to have very nice features, and its under $200, (i went z68 cause i could use the integrated gpu while i get the gpus).
and the case its simply awesome i dont even care about using a MATX mobo in a full tower case.

As i plan in getting 2 GTX 560Ti and sli them, i'm concerned about temps as theres not much spacing between them.

what do you guys think? if anyone has 2 of these in sli, would u like to enlight me about the temps and such? the case has a big sidefan that can blow air directly to the cards, btw i plan on using a corsair H100 for the cpu cooling, trying to avoid monster towers.

also trying to be on a budget, do you think gtx 560Ti in sli will laste me for a while? running a 26" 1080 tv, ive heard that the most powerful cards gets bottlenecked by the cpu anyways, also sli leaves my options open for surround vision if i ever want to. i really dont think much about upgrades beyond a year from starting cause i usually build a completely new pc after like5 years aprox, and there will be more advanced stuff at that time.

yeah lol sorry for this wall-o-text XD, thanks in advance

Not sure about the other items, but the board is great, however, you might have higher temps on the top card due to spacing since it is standard two slot spacing, so the cards are next to each other. However, the GTX560 doesn't run very hot in the first place, so you will probably be fine. As far as them being in SLI and being "enough", for a 1080p single monitor, you will be more than fine. If you do surround vision, you probably won't be able to max out the settings on most games at that res with those cards and you may run into the 1Gb on each card being a bottle neck. You may want to look at a single HD6970 instead and then later on add a second one if you need it. They have 2Gb of ram on the cards and two would easily run a multi monitor setup. If you are stuck on Nvidia, then you could look at a GTX570 or a GTX580 (used ones are pretty cheap), both would give you additional memory and would last longer than two GTX560's, especially if you plan on keeping them for 5 years.
