All you need is new fans for the H100. The stock ones perform very well, but Noctua's or GT's would work about as well while being much quieter.

Yepp. I've been an Asus and Corsair fan for the longest time, so that's the first places I turned.

By the way, the FX-4100 is back at Fry's Electronics, and my baby (FX-8150!!!) is home and here to stay!

Does anyone know of some funny music to put during a high speed? (Royalty Free)
post #25 of 65
no point in upgrading the AX850 to the AX1200 ... unless you are tri-firing the 7970s... than 850w is more than enough for CF.

Also..i dunno about why you need so much SSDs in RAID... guarantee you wont see any performance difference.

Save all that redundant money and get 3 7970s... that will really rock your games =)

Well, the 850 would probably be fine for what I plan on running, but it would be almost maxed out almost all of the time. That is generally not a good practice, so I will be upgrading to the AX1200i. The other reason for that is because the 1200i will interface with the Corsair Link for better system performance and monitoring.

As for the SSD's, they will be used for a few different purposes. Obviously as a boot drive, and program drive. But also as pretty much a scratch disc. When I'm editing videos, I want it all to be blazing fast. This will give me that. I might just get two 120gb ssd's in raid 0. I am unsure of all of it... We shal see the performance of the FX-8350 when it comes out, and base it all around that. Overall though, triple 7970's would be quite a waste for my uses. Dual cards should be fine. And I think I'm gonna get a single 7970 GHz Edition to hold me over until the 8000 series, and then get two of those bad boys!

Haha. I'm thinking of the Benny Hill Theme Song, but I dunno if I can use it without getting hit for copyrights.

Does anyone by chance have Sony Vegas Pro 11 and know how to speed up video? I am trying to speed up my video, but it won't let me to past 4X speed, which is just not fast enough... Any help, so I can get these build logs up?

I'm not gonna lie... The performance of this computer disappoints me... It takes over an hour to render a 15 minute video... I kinda expected it to do a 15 minute video in about 30 minutes... But whatever.

The truly frustrating part is that the CPU, RAM, and GPU are all staying below 50% usage... I don't understand it... I set it to "High" priority in the task manager, and it's still not using above 50% of the utilities... Anyone know how to make it use all the utilities, so I can get these build logs up?

I also realised that I never posted the unboxings of my H100, and also my AMD FX-8150. So here they are.

Corsair H100 Unboxing:

AMD FX-8150 Unboxing:

Also, I have 2 Corsair SP120 High Performance editions en route to the house. When I get my next check from Google AdSense, I'm gonna get a second Radeon 7770.
