[BeHardware] Asus HD 7950 DirectCU II: fault report! - Page 11  

post #101 of 149
absolutely right that means either an ASUS Workstation Series Mobo or the MSI Big Bang XpowerII or if you're on a big budget you can go straight to a Dual Socket LGA 2011 pair them with 3 or 4 DCUII's and let's shew some Games wink.gif. but me & my budget we are both happy now, at least for another 2 or 3 Months until Kepler finally rolls out.

As previously stated, my VF3000A is as quite as my WC loop.

You'd have to be an absolute fruit case to use an XL board just to crossfire/sli 3 or 4 DCII's on air!

Its still cheaper than buying 3 gpu water blocks..... That said if you can afford all those parts you should be able to afford the blocks too unless you dont wanna play with water

Those Items are built for End User to test them & to test them to the edge, your saying that like none had owned an SR2??... Personally i don't prefer Water Blocks because there's no real benefits only one "Reduce Space" & i really don't care about that either. the only alternative that i have in mind either Dry Ice or LN2 since i prefer open bench Rigs anyway & sure the fun of driving things to the edge wink.gif.

Exactly, water-cooling GPU's aids in:
- reducing space usage
- reducing temps further then air can
- reducing noise
- looks pretty nice too

I said before Personally i don't prefer Water Blocks i didn't told you to stay away from them & I'm not going to use them since Neither the Look or the Sound matters for me all it matters the Performance, besides once Water Blocks start reaching the 100% of Efficiency than ill think about them but till now it's a No, sorry if that bother you "Bloitz" tongue.gif

it's simple all you could do is to be patient and wait for more details info on that & don't throw words like that + its away better from Recalling 3 Lineups of Motherboards just like the Case of another Company wink.gif. Besides this whole Problem is not a Big Deal things are made to be tested to the Edge if they ever Failed they will be Re-batched or a Refreshed in newly based model.
as for "Society Rejected Part" i think you should go deeper in here & don't let that SO hold's you back, go beyond...

wall of period-less fanboy text crits for 9999. huh?

That's strange, I have a Twin Frozr III 6950 that overclocked and at full load under Furmark would hit about 75C with a custom fan profile, and now under water doesn't even touch 45C at same voltage and clocks. So much for efficiency and "reducing space" huh? rolleyes.gif

When i talked about efficiency i meant "Leaks Free" that's it, because no one knows when it happens, one favor just don't comment back because its not going anywhere & i really don't have time for such Boyish stuffs.
