Have not used that before...and my son is no help in browsing his account.

Steam is ludicrously easy to set up. Download, install, sign into account and select games you want to install locally.

Can't wait to see this thing finished and all together.

Have you looked at any of the newer cards if the 690 proves not enough horsepower for your display(s)?

Was rushing to set the fan speeds manually to 100% during that... hah.

So now I setup a Curve Controller for CPU and GPU.
GPU shown below on AQ5. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

CPU below with curve setup, automatically going to 75% Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Fans drop to 58% after the Intel burn test is done within seconds--very quiet in the house.. can hear the refrigerator 20 feet away. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Replaced Vandals in the front;
Power Switch (reset) 22mm vandal is now white (before blue)
Slightbox Switch (latching) 22mm vandal is also white (before orange) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hi Seanimus great build and pictures. copied about 65 pages from your buildlog. Nice job on the acrylic. specialy interestid on the vandal switches between the Aquero's "i will com back to you for that" . thumb.gif

Almost there.
Expecting 690 to be everything I need for a single Monitor computer. Have to still prove it , but yes hoping that... .

Its currently running on Gen 2 PCI x 16 on the motherboard. Still have to read up on how to set it up in BIOS for Gen3. I put it in the 4th slot from CPU which x16.
Have to see what the BIOS says as the slot names...I know it doesn't line up with what the board says in the small print next to each PCIE.

That 690 should do you just fine. I run a single 1440p monitor, and the 690 is a perfect match for it. Been playing a lot of Metro Last Night lately, great game.

Yep no doubts ...
Did the EVGA Stress utility..
Reached 40 C after 5 mins.



Forgot to take picture of the reservoir...the RGB color changed since it hit 40 C for few secs.

Edit: Updated correct picture above.

That's not the BIOS problem, it's just Nvidia cards need a registry hack to enable pcie 3.0

Thanks for that link. I will need that later.
But first, have to get past BIOS ; meanining the monitor should still have a signal to get to the Windows part.
I think in the BIOS I have to setup all the GEN3 compatability options ..

My advise is that you should forget about the AQ5 because you have been so nervous about the whole thing for at least a month, without even having the unit. I can gaurantee you that you will have issues with AQ5, and you need a lot of patience and doing LOTS of reading to get it to work. And you do not need another variable in your build given that you have multiple motherboards?

About the same?

Just quoting this because tiny gains only are being seen by applying the 3.0 patch. If you are dedicated to having "one with the lot" though, by all means. wink.gif
