Improving my Sig Rigs.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
What can I do to improve my sig rigs? I have a sort of problem with always wanting more from my computers and I tend to get the top of everything. I've come to a point though that I'm unsure how to proceed. Any advice?

Get a good sound card.

Edit: something along these lines http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102033

Those rigs are pretty much about the best you can get them at lol. I don't see why you would want to upgrade any. Maybe you could up the 12gb ram to 16gb if you want. Probably get some sound cards for both.

custom loops or dedicated sound maybe?

Your rigs are pretty much godly, I opened the thread expecting to have more substantial suggestions, but I just got jelly.

I don't use my sound much. I have headphones I use when I need sound.

They don't have triple channel 16gb kits. That would make each chip at like 5.33Gb. lol

Oh sorry forgot about triple channel. Get a nice watercooling system (loop) that should drop your temps by far.

Temps aren't too much of an issue. But, how much improvement would I see? What advantage would I get?

On the Noctua at load I wouldn't be surprised to see 10-15C drop, The H100 ~7C drop. Thats with cooling your cards, which will drop about 25C at load. +Silence if you do it right.

Edit: really, its not a performance gain aside from the possibility of pushing your CPU's and VGA cards higher.

You could do some Raid 0/1 with some SSD's. Maybe some added performance but it would mostly up your security.
