Yeah hybrid drives looks great but in my case I am getting an SSD for FSX only...mechanical drives are just too slow, it takes 3-4min to load up a scene as opposed to seconds on an SSD! rolleyes.gif
The 6300 has a pretty impressive price/performance value! As for the upcoming Haswell, I am sure they will have outrageous prices at the beginning so these are off for me!
Yeah women aren't as excited as we are with techs, as long as the thing runs they are fine lol

Oh, yea, for the game you play, 3 x monitors would pawn.

Hybrid drives are good for things you do often, from what I understand. They work like superfetch, once they know what you tend to do on your system, they load it into the SSD portion of the drive. This would be great for the OS, and people who focus on a single game. How they compare to a full on SSD, I'm not sure, but, I know it's better than a HDD if you're the type that uses the same programs a lot.

Yea, she'd do well with the FX 6300. I also have my old 212 evo, that I can put on it. I'll give her a nice little overclock.

Yea, I'm sure intel will milk people for all they're worth. I'll see. It still comes down to the fact, that things I like to play, just do better with intel. Even things such as FPS, I don't play games such as BF4, I'll play borderlands, things that are open world, Strategy games, RPG type (That term is loose now), and lot of indie titles.

I've noticed some of the indie games, tend to be poorly optimized when it comes to CPU usage, this doesn't meet up well with AMD's weaker cores. I don't see that changing any time soon. Not all however, and many I have run flawless, it's mainly the zombie ones, the indie devs have issues getting them to run well with all that AI, from what I can tell. These are the games that I really feel like I need more CPU for... I'm a zombie fiend.

Check out at 2:55, you'll see the hybrid drive loads games as quickly as a ssd after four runs, its boot times aren't as good however, but better than a HDD by far.

Interesting about the hybrid but I don't know how that would work out because FSX can't be installed on the same partition as the OS
Yeah I don't play BF4 but I do have BFBC2 but my favorite is an oldie, Call of Duty 2! smile.gif

I just had a flash, I will try to hook up my TV to my video card, I just need a HDMI-DVI adaptor! biggrin.gif

I think Indie games are great, and I like supporting small dev teams! Linux has quite a lot of them!

As for your previous post about win8, I am not sure...tried it and don't like it. But, recent games are supposedly faster in it. This wouldn't be the case for FSX which still runs on DX9 lol...there is a DX10 fix but it's a 30$ add-on!

There might be some sort of remote CPU monitoring APP that you can load on your phone or tablet.

I know both EVGA Precision and MSI Afterburner have components/apps to do this over Bluetooth. Perhaps they report CPU info as well. I never could get it to work because my x51 has no BT. The dongle thing I tried paired but probably was too much a relic to communicate. I thought it was a neat idea though.

I have a pretty older Toshiba Qosimo notebook for when I travel (which is never lately). I did not keep track of benchmark results but it really seemed like Tomb Raider ran quite a bit smoother after I switched to Windows 8. It was actually struggling pretty hard prior and I had fresh windows 7 ultimate OEM (not Toshiba version with shovel-ware). That machine has GTX 460m and an i7 740QM - which is supposed to be a 1.7 GHZ but for whatever reason its always running 2GHZ and I don't complain. I still love this machine(18.4" screen) and Windows 8 made it seem faster for everything. It still games pretty well as the resolution is only 1600x900 and more recently games are better threaded.

So I'm convinced windows 8 helps with at least some games. Some features are just annoying and stupid. Sometimes control panel applets launch into metro full screen apps. That just makes me cringe. I put up with it because I know performance wise it is better.

Core temp has a plugin that lets you monitor your core temps, cpu usage and memory usage on your phone. You have to forward ports on your router and make your pcs ip static.

I really don't know how that would work out. I mean, if you already have a data drive, than it's not a big deal. I'd personally take a hybrid, over just using a single 120gb ssd. I think the hybrids are ideal for people who use limited programs, or, like my mom or something. Someone who doesn't need to handle more than one drive.

Converters are cheap enough. It would be cool to have 3 monitors set up, and a larger TV as a 4th, for monitoring temps, and the such... devil.gif

I've played some good indie games. I am wary of them however, since many are fairly shallow. I also think they are getting a little bold in their pricing, considering their depth of play. Still, I've had a few that I've loved. I guess it's the chance you take.

Well, the windows 8 would be for my ol'ladys system. I'm still hooked on windows 7.

*Got the 2nd monitor set up. I need to calibrate the colors, looks grey next to my current one. It's also slightly higher. It's the same model, but, a newer version. =/ The Acer logo is silver, and not black. Not a big deal, since it won't be mine anyway. I kind of already had it planned, to sooner or later, give my ol'lady both of these, and buy 3 new monitors, 24 inch, at the same time. (Add devil smiley here). To be honest, just two of these 22" is a whole lot of monitor, and take up a ton of desk space. I'll post a pick of it later. Oh, and, I'm sure the extra heat from just this one is enough to be overwhelming. I'm surrounded by monitors, and computers.

Damned if this phone isn't cramping my pictures style... I need to replace my camera.

Hello all!

New to this forum, I am thinking about buying the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ and or the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+. Currently have a cheapo Asus M5A97 R2.0. I was wondering on what kind of input you guys/gals have on the Gigabyte motherboard I posted. I am far from novice so lay it on me and let me know. Also this is not a new build whatever Motherboard I end up purchasing will be paired up with my AMD FX-8350 and Ill be running GTX760 Sli as well..

Thanks!!!

Yeah I just bought a second HD so I'll probably get a Samsung EVO 250Gb for FSX...I already have close to 100Gb of add-ons including the base install lol! I think there is no other game where you can add so much add-ons and go bankrupt! eek.gif

Your desk area looks great, I only have a small desk, it's got a good depth but having 2x 22" would fill 95% of it's width lol.
Yeah I know about indie but on linux there is quite a lot of them that are free or really cheap through the Ubuntu Software Centre smile.gif
Heck, many FSX add-ons have a ridiculous price too!

What is your phone? Mine is crapping out too it's a Galaxy S2, I am good for an upgrade in 2 weeks, will prolly get the S4 since the S5 might be released around may or something.

So finally got the Mosfet and NB blocks installed today... Turns out my board is warped just like a lot of people's around here. The Fujipoly thermal pad wasn't even making contact with the middle mosfets and I was even using screws instead of the pushpins. Really sucks... To try and counter act this I added a little extra thermal pad in the middle and tightened the block as much as possible.

Will continue keeping a close eye on mosfet temps with thermal probe on back of board where mosfets are. In BF4 at 1.52-1.55 V 5.04 GHz and a blower fan on VRM heatsink the back board temp was always 52-56C which should be perfectly fine.

While doing some suicide Cinebench runs the back of the board hit 96C at 1.71 V 5.33 GHz for about 10 seconds, dangerous I know. Think I'm done tempting fate, no more crazy Cinebench or other bench runs. I'll stick to gaming. Just wanted to see what was possible with this new loop.

Still working a giant air bubble out of the CPU block. This is the 3rd time to fill this thing up, every single time there's always a giant air bubble in the block. Leave it on overnight and it's always gone in the morning.

Think this cheap tubing is already having plasticizer issues frown.gif Turning yellowish green, you can kind of see it in some of the pics. Just going to live with it for now. Told myself I'm not spending anymore friggin money on this dang PC. Not willing to shell out the $40-50 for the premium tubing right now.

Even more bad news... One of these Crucial Ballistix isn't being recognized by Windows. No idea why. All I did was remove RAM to get mobo out of case. When everything was done I put them back in. So much crap ughhhh!

Warning: Watercooled Rig Pics (Click to show)












In that 3rd pic with the 4 90 Deg fittings. The tubing in the front is fresh from my leftover tubing. You can see how it looks clearer/cleaner than the one behind it.




your right about those mosfets reach 90+ on the stock plastic push pins here is a small test i did on my rig my room temp is in the 60s and I did this pretty much as a suicide run to see how much i could push this thermal limit this is 4.8ghz 1.6 vcore 2400 mhz nb 2600 mhz HT 1600 mhz ram cl9 this is on a GA970A-UD3P

Welcome to OCN, as for your question I have just acquired a UD-7, so I wont' pretend to know but some one will. thumb.gif I have a question as well, where can I find out if the UD-7 is or is not capable of handling ram with a 3T command rate?

I was wondering on what kind of input you guys/gals have on the Gigabyte motherboard I posted. I am far from novice so lay it on me and let me know. Also this is not a new build whatever Motherboard I end up purchasing will be paired up with my AMD FX-8350 and Ill be running GTX760 Sli as well..

Thanks!!!

The UD5 will do 2x16, or 3x8. Also, make sure you're case can fit a UD7, since it's a larger ATX. Not much reason to get a UD7 unless you're going 4 way sli.

I'm not sure about the Asus Crosshair, but, I do know these gb mobo's won't overclock as well. I'd go for the Asus, unless you want to save a few bucks.
