Spent all night fixing a couple of machines. Wife's oem desktop finally was on life support. And my cousin showed up to fix his machine. Turns out his wife put the puter outside. Well, it rained recently and puters and rain don't mix rolleyes.gif. A trip to Frys and we came back with a couple of new cpu(s) and a gpu.

Wife's machine had an anemic Phenom I 9100e 1.8 and the other lost a pretty decent 940BE. An Athlon II x2 270 went into each and what a world of difference, especially for the wife's machine. Mean while, this beast just sat there but impressed all the guests that came. That frozenQ res is the highlight since most don't get the quad-sli Kepler setup. Lol, still waiting on a reply from Frozenq to a get a second one biggrin.gif

Ok, so I may get some playing time tonight with this rig. Don't hold me to it. Clips won't arrive until next week so the wiremanagement will be tackled then smile.gif

Tell me about it. This reminds me of a story.
I had just built my first dual GPU rig and it was an early X-fire setup. My then roomate wanted a beast like mine but didn't trust me to build it. So he hired a so-called ex-purt to come in at night and build it for him. The roomate told him he wanted a double VGA like mine. The ex-purt replied that it's a bad idea because that would make him more vulnerable to virus attacks. And that was from a guy that my roomate was paying 30$/hr for his ex-purtize.

lol, that ex-purt is smoking something weird...lol.

I try to explain my rig to others but you might as well be talking gibberish to them tbh. The lights and colors is more then a wow factor for them.

Nice!

My backplates are shorter then then my 680s cause the 680s PCB is a semi-reference design but a bit longer.

Kinda reminded me of when I went to a lan party.... had a 6970 installed on my rig... then this noob... you know... I AM DA GOD OF CS kinda noob... comes in with a rig having two 460s... and started saying he was getting 300 FPS in CS cause of it.... and if crysis 2 ever gets released he will get 100 fps easy! (I was going :thumb:good job noob!)

So I just said lets have a fast game of Far Cry 2 Lads... everybody fired up their systems (we got him to install it)... and he started shouting the game is crap and won't run on his system.... Lo and behold he had like the first driver that came with the cards...

Now every time somebody sees him at a lan party they shout "Hey no-driver guys hows things?!" biggrin.gif
