[OFFICIAL] ROG Maximus V Owners Club - Page 223

post #2221 of 4012
This has been an excellent forum, found many answers here. And I thank you all for that. The "Sticky Multiplier" issue was driving me nutty to say the least.

Aaaand, I figured since I keep coming back here... I should join the club.





Little bit of a work in progress at the moment, so excuse the old WC parts/twist ties/ugly brown pipe straping. Gotta get some new parts, still haven't decided... you guys know the drill. rolleyes.gif

oh... and if anybody is wondering, that's a solid state (peltier) chilling section in the top left (ripped it outta an old Dell XPS wc loop, still works great). My ambient temps in the room are about 23C, LOL this processor idles almost 10C below ambient because of the chiller, I'm wondering if I should be worried about condensation...? Tho I have plenty of air movement... I'll keep an eye on it.
In Progress...

Nice work! What case is that?

Thanks! Although, it's only nice up close. If I had zoomed out any further you would have thought an electric wire octopus is trying to eat my computer, I'm literally holding them out of the way with my camera on a tripod taking a timed pic. Lots of work left to do whistle.gif

There are just as many reasons to use DD as DTS actually, despite there being some limitations - especially if you are only encoding for 5.1 - and many games don't even have surround channels unless you use Maxtrix etc to 'create' them. The bottom line is that most games and many movies (even BR) still come with Dolby tracks rather than DTS tracks. The idea is to support every codec... because you never know when you might want to watch that old DVD you have lying around. biggrin.gif

But in what I mainly do is gaming. it's a Dolby World. Look at every Gaming headset that does Surround besides a few Analog sets, all need Dolby or don't work.

Exactly - although I've never actually found a surround capable headset that's as good as a great set of stereo cans and a good headphone amp.

Actually, that's pretty cheap all things considered. I've had my eyes on THESE for a while now - but have other priorities at the moment (like building out my theater). They're "on sale" sometimes for 'as little' as $799 but usually they're just under a grand. eek.gif

I'm actually building a whole new rig. Link below is my build log.

Not sure if I'll put the cards in my current setup and bench them. Depends if I have time.

Can't wait to build my first watercooled rig.

Nice setup. I really like the layout of that case.

In the middle of putting together a Switch 810 gunmetal case with a Maximus V Formula, and Samsung 512gb 840 pro myself. I guess great minds think alike. Just waiting for the new Swiftech H220 to arrive.

Lol, I recommended that H220 to a friend last night... great deal I must say, kinda wish something like that was around when I started wc. Then again, if we weren't ripping heater cores out of junk cars to wc a pc stuff like this wouldn't even exist!

Speaking of wc... anybody else on water want to share there temps? I feel like my chip is a bit warm for the voltage. I'm coming from a Q9550 oc'd 3.83ghz @ 1.368v, which was generating roughly 100-120W, and my cores never saw 65C with IBT. This 3570k, oc'd to 4.8ghz @ 1.320v is barely breaking 72W, but my temps are quite a bit higher, about 85C with IBT. I've heard about the whole "TIM not as good" thing, hence delidding and such, just didn't think it would be this bad... Do my temps seem high for a water setup? My ambient temps are 23C for these tests.
In Progress...
