"Anyone using a MSI mainboards and graphics cards can compete in the most challenging DirectX 11 scene in 3DMark– Fire Strike."

Hmmm, translation not so great.....

Anyway there will be a lot of benching going on and a lot of scores being posted on the bot not in the competition, all good fun
post #5484 of 7827
Does that mean anyone with a Lightning can compete? Not sure if my comprehension skills are failing here...

Small print: anyone with username containing 'Geno' or 'OCAU' is ineligible from competing. Sorry dude, looks like youre out tongue.gif


Seriously though, sounds like you need to be using MSI mobos

It's an MSI comp, usually for sponsored comps you have to use their brand motherboard, gigabyte always does the same.
It does get made fun of, most of the time the winner uses a higher end mobo than the mobo offered for a prize.

Looks like for the main comp you have to use an MSI Mpower mainboard & MSI graphics card.
There is a lucky draw among all contestants (usually excluding main comp winners) using any z77 MSI board & MSI gpu.

Oh well Im using the 310.90 right now, maybe I should use 306 or 313, anyways Im still able to play to everything now at 1.250v 1346mhz max oc gpu clock, 6959mhz memory and good temps btw. I dont really know why I cant pass 7ghz of memory clock, I oc the voltage of the memory but It doesnt seem to make a difference at all

Awwww cmon now!! The only thing better then new hardware... is free new hardware! Plus I need an excuse to put 1.7v+ through this 3960x and 1.5v+ through my lightnings. So far I havnt found an excuse to use more then 1.55v on cpu or 1.4v on the lightnings. Need to do a death benchmark for a worthy cause lol..

Thats weird, on overclockers australia forum a month or so ago I participated in a Gigabyte 3dmark 11 comp and won a F2A85X-UP4 (AMD APU motherboard SIGH.) motherboard with no Gigabyte hardware through their rep on the forums.

Some more pics done in daylight as requested. I can still see so many things to do - re-do tubing, new low profile aluminium clamps, sleeve cabling etc, and parts are on there way now (smoked plexi serpentine top window, MM front plate in matte black, MM midplate in matte black etc) but it's getting there.

You see there was nothing to be embarrassed of !
Indeed the lower card cable is eh, is that a 6 to 8 PCI-e? ph34r-smiley.gif

What is the brand of the fittings? I like that logo on the 90°
I see you are using clamped fitting, I was looking only at compression ones, I think both are better than push-in in term of leak free.

BTW, I took some time and see how I could place my lower HDD cage to the alternative position, as can be seen on Fractal website but never seen any review showing it.
Here some pics


Got hard time trying to route the sleeved PCIe extension but there it is, I took some mesure to see if a 280 rad could fit, I removed both lower and higher plastic thingy required for the mid hdd cage.


So as expected I cannot put a rad larger than 30mm, but a 280 will fit (seen one with total height of 323mm) :
