post #6821 of 33567
Alright, my chip has been sold and my server HDD's will be ordered shortly. However, the question now remains. Do I go back to MC to pick up another 3770K and test my luck OR do I just pickup a 3570K for $170 since I've proven not to need more than that for my needs (most intensive stuff I do is gaming)? Decision time...

Add a fan controller, and you're good to go. biggrin.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That's why I'm using them thumb.gif
Xinrulian fans? LOL! they have sleeve "bearings"! no better than Scythe Slipstreams ... as much as they provide excellent specs on paper they are weak, just loud. and they die silently in a few months, you will not even notice. I had a dozen of Slipstreams, near all of them died within 3-9 months, the last two I killed myself (gutted them, needed shrouds).

better go with Swiftech Helix (some magical Z-bearing, hell knows what that is) or just get Scythe GT Ap-15 1,850rpm with Sony Fluid Dynamic Bearings (lasts forever) and be done with it! wink.gif

They ARE 5 bucks though, but I had the picture of the Swiftech helix in my head lol
Swiftech Helix are the cheap way to get good rad fans, but since they are new nobody knows how long they survive in real life yet.

Just take the regular dremel cutting disc (good to cut anything up to steel, done that on my case MB tray), it should go through acrylic like through butter ... hell it went like through butter when I was making MB Tray cutouts and that was made out of thick steel!

yeah, you can't angle it too much or the disc will crack. if you want rounded corners, then just drill them through and connect the outer edges with a straight cut. I used 3/4'' step drill bit for making round holes, then connected them with straight cuts on outer edge, like this:

Drilling holes in acrylic is a different story, you need a special bit to not risk cracking the acrylic.

Yea, I'm going to buy a plas-drill bit tomorrow and another sheet of acrylic. I want to get this window finished! It'll look amazing! tongue.gif Does anyone know how to file or make the sides of the acrylic nice? Like after cutting them?

Not sure on that, I was thinking a router but you might want to test it first, it could crack the glass. Maybe a series of progressively finer sand papers or a fine file.

Is this helpful?

This is the cut on the smallest acrylic. Just going to do 2 sides and this has to get cut to fit into a 5.25 bay, if I ever get around to that.

Wet sanding, 60, 100, 220 and 600 and progression shots. Moved into the house at some point; was getting cold.

White rouge ...hard as a brick.
8204630180_fb1c6c66e2_z.jpg
Beginning to see lines much a little bit more clearly:
8203539789_f79fc8a3cf_z.jpg
The Meguiars:
8203537689_e388ac8441_z.jpg
Much better...but something went wrong...should have been clear.
8203537185_505c324f28_z.jpg
If I take a shot from top its still a bit hazy. Thought it was because the other side was not done:
8204629158_e5ec368c9e_z.jpg
Redid the 3 steps starting from white rouge. But this time (google is your friend), added vegetable oil to the white polishing compound and voila:
8203536597_d7b0be3cff_z.jpg
And this time a shot from the top, you can barely notice its there in the shot..Only reason you see it, is because the other side is not done:
8203535933_734ef9c115_z.jpg
Another shot:
8203535235_ab77589696_z.jpg
Its so clear that you can see the glue on the masking tape which is stuck on the other side.

Hi, I've been up to date with this thread and your chip (congrats by the way) for a while now . In my experience, after more than half a dozen 3770k from MC (all Costa Rican) finding a chip like yours is not easy. Best one so far was a 3229B892 batch. 5Ghz at 1.46v. Whea-free, benchmark stable. Stock VID of 1.090. Worst chip had stock VID of 1.200v thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif So, whether its a 3570k or the 3770k, finding out what it can do will be equally exciting. Just have fun. thumb.gif Also, this thread should be OCN thread of the year. Happy New Year OCN. tongue.gif

Cool PuffinMyLye. I bet they will love having such a great chip. I'd love having one like it! Was it really enough to fund all the HDDs?

On thei5/i7 question, you really do not need a 3770K unless you just like having one. A 3570K works fine for most everything we do, especially games and web stuff. Never know what kind of performance any of them will do until you get it home and in a system to see.
