So... uhm... I accientally broke of the PCI e 3.0 clip thingy. How screwed am I? It only functions as to hold the card in place right?
Since it's screwed in at the back it should be fine right? And I'm watercooling to the tube should hold it in place?

What would you recommend?

The clip itself only serves to hold the card absolutely locked in to the slot. The problem is, a loose or even slightly unseated gpu can cause catastrophic failure of the system (as in electrical short, etc). While the weight of the cards -- especially with waterblocks & sli connector etc -- might serve to your advantage in holding the setup in place, it could also slowly weigh the rig down until one day suddenly the pins aren't making contact anymore and you have a real problem on your hands.

I assume the second card is still locked in place by its slot's clip? If your setup is anything like mine, the gpu "apparatus" is rock solid and functions as a single block of hardware, so the secondary clip might just be enough to hold the weight of the whole thing absolutely still. Or it might not. ?

Which one is yours, the rigig acrylic tubes or the pcv? If it's the rigid acrylic you might be good just with the support of the tubes. If it's the flexible I personally wouldn't trust *any* weight on the tubing, the last thing you want is the tubes being pushed or pulled in any direction supporting any weight at all - that's a recipe for disaster.

It's not at 1.504 volts it's really at 1.480 volts CPU load line calibration is set at Ultra High I have excellent water cooling average temperatures are 68 degrees Celsius

100-percent stable

100% stable

Definitely a golden chip but do you have proof?
post #12017 of 14769
You're right maybe I should do 4.6 gigahertz 24/7 the only reason I was running at 4.8 was because my chip never got hot at 1.48 volts maybe I will scale back a little to see how far my temperatures drop

You're absolutely right I can never get it stable at 5.0 ghz no matter what I did 4.7ghz-4.8ghz is excellent for this processors

I see... Is there any way to fix it you think?

You guys are right there is no real benefit running your processor at 4.8 ghz 24/7 it's solely for benchmarking I think I'm going to run at 4.5ghz I've noticed a significant drop in temperature I went from 65 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius that's a 15 degree drop in temperature and I'm also running at lower volts thanks for the advice!!!!!
