[Worklog] (UPDATED) Peanut's Underwater adventure - Ivy Bridge-E 4820k, 1+3 Multi-mon, 780GTX

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Howdy there, wanted to drop off my work log for the folks here. The topics and posts have been an exceptional help and I've got my system totally running steady now.

Details as follows:
- Rasa 750 RS360 kit with an upgraded pump (Alphacool VPP655)
- Dangerden GTX580 Water block
- additional Rasa RX120 Radiator
- additional 3 x Yate Loon 120mm fan in push/pull
- Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme 6 channel fan controller

Performance:
- i7 is running at 4.5ghz @ 1.350v 33c idle / 55c load
- 580's running at 900/1800/2004

I tried to take pictures of every step of the way, but it proved difficult between the large amounts of thermal paste and trying to get all the tubing and fittings on (7/16" ID over 1/2" ID is difficult)

I think running an triple screen setup without the extra VRAM really bottlenecks the system.

Yea, the 1.5gb framebuffer on my 480s is killing me. Really at 4 million pixels and up, you want 2 or more gb of vram. Honestly, at the 12 million pixels I have, I really think I'd need somewhere on the order of 6gb vram to max games.

Very late update, but I've since sold my 1.5gb cards to a fellow OC.net'er Kcuestag and upgraded to 3.0gb versions. World of a difference and helps tremendously for anyone running triple monitors.

Another major update:
  • Swapped my GTX 670's and replaced with GTX 780's - nice boost in multi-mon games!
  • Upgraded to Intel 840 pro x 2 (128GB) in RAID0 - Win8 fast boot!
  • Moved to a 1 over 3 configuration - purchased the WSGF edition stand courtesy of Skipclarke on the WSGF.com forums
  • Updated to the new IB-E 4820k - PCI-E 3.0 x 16 lanes
