Very nice setup. I wouldn't apolagize for the pic. We can all clearly see you have the UD3 installed in that rig. Out side of some crazy cable's I think you got a spiffy build there man. thumb.gif

LOL.

Well first of all I absolutely love this board. Like you said, it looks great. And performs really well too. When Skyrim first came out I was running my 1100T as a quad core @ 4.5ghz. Ran the rig like this for 60 hours of Skyrim playtime so far, not including all the time I spent playing around with other games like that.


All those stray cables are going to my fans ... was too lazy to unclip em.

Need a new case unfortunately I've been too lazy to buy one and move everything over. This case has poor airflow and to OC I need: push/pull fans on the radiator (2) sucking air IN from the outside. A fan above them on the top of the case, sucking the air from the radiator out the top of the case, and 2 fans on the side of the case sucking air in.

Though even OCing at 3.9ghz right now I'm able to leave both CPU and system smart fan control on and it works really well. Almost silent til gaming time and even then it only ramps my fans up to 1900rpms if I'm playing something like BF3.

Great to hear your having good results with the board. I rave about my UD3. It has been a total treat to work with. Such a shame that BD had to have such low performance to power usage ratio, Would be nice to have the UD3 in my main rig, I think it looks much better than my current ASUS mobo.

How well dose your set up play BF3? I'm going to finish up my main rig and cannot decide what GPU set up I want.


EDIT: I also use that same PSU.....holy freaking cable's batman.... The back side of my case was off for almost a month with all the wires just hanging out. I had no clue where to put them all in my case lol. ended up putting the HDD cage back in so I could use it to hid all the extra cables lol.

I have 2x EVGA GTX 560 (NON-Ti) 2GB models.

They work really well for what they cost me back in August (they were on sale) and I can run almost any game maxed WITH 3D Vision on and have 50+ FPS

Yea it sucks about BD. Took a risk going AMD when I built and lost out I guess.

Oh well...maybe in the next couple years we'll see better multi-core scaling in games. But regardless my 1100T does **NOT** bottleneck my SLI gpus as many would say. Just last night was playing Skyrim (for the first time in about 2 months) as a 6core @ only 3.75ghz and was getting 99% usage on both GPUs.

They were factory overclocked to 850/1700/2004. I can further OC them to 915/1850/2054 and be 100% stable, and it increases my FPS by about 5-10 in basically all demanding games

Though Crysis 2 maxed, with 3D vision enabled, running DX11 brings me down to about 40 FPS in some places.

Luckily that game is trash anyways!
