Hopefully someone will buy the BF4 things that come with them.
Congrats man ! Pls can you let us know temps you will be getting with single & dual card closed case ?
I rally like the case, but have not decided on it yet.
Will do. I'll bench the crap out of these things for you guys (overclock, fan speeds,core/vrm temps, the whole shebang). I'll also compare the temps with and without the gpu fan thing I rigged up to see how much of an improvement there is.
And about the case, go ahead and get it. I was pulling my hair for the past 6 months on what case I wanted to get. My line of thought was roughly like this:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
FT02 watercooled with 540mm rad
Phanteks Enthoo Primo
Haf XB Evo
Haf XB Evo watercooled with 1080 rad
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe
Watercool my PC-A70F with monsta 360 and 240.
Cubitek Magicube AIO
Make a custom case
Haf XB Evo modified with pci fan bracket
I might of missed some cases, but you get the general idea. When you get too picky, that is what happens
The HAF XB stock didn't satisfy me, but add some fans on it to fully utilize the direct airflow to components, it has the potential to be the best air-cooled case on the market, especially for its small size and price.
Next up is a 4930k, but that won't be for a couple months.
I hope my 290xs don't have performance problems. As someone said in this thread somewhere, Hynix vram could be the possible issue. Due to supply shortages from Hynix, they could be pushing out lower quality or lower binned chips in order to meet the demand. Has anyone tried flashing a different bios on there (PT1 bios comes to mind) to see if that fixes the performance. Something is just telling me that the PT1 bios will fix it.
