Besides, this way, if I ever get a WQUXGA or better monitor, I can drop in an HD 5870/5970 to help drive that many pixels somewhere down the line. (I doubt it though, I am likely going to downgrade my resolution to 1080p in favor of like a 40-50" TV.)
Very true, adn the 1000 watter will A LOT more efficiently especially if you get another card.

By the time I amass enough extra cash to spend on the folding rig, especially with the holidays coming, it probably wont be till the end of the year before I get one unfortunately. I'll probably ask for a PSU for Christmas.

Overclocking the card will get you close to 100C. The card runs pretty warm. On a positive note the 5970 can easily run off a 650 watt PSU. Most of the power consumption tables I've seen bring total system power to low 400's (this is with a quad and one drive). In my opinion the 5850/5870 is a way better deal.
This is exactly the reason I "misplaced" my side panel. ATM, my cards idle at 49C (top) and 40C (bottom) @ 50% fan. Even when gaming for a good long while they never go over 70C. When I had the side panel on they would easily idle 10C hotter, if not more so, and load mid to low 80's @ 70% fan. Well that's too hot and too loud for my taste, I think I might look in to some sort of aftermarket cooling for the cards.

BlackOmega, I would think with the side panel on your airflow would increase and help provide better cooling

How is the cable management inside your case? Do you think there are any dead spots inside?

Good luck

That's true and the less strain on your system's PSU, the better.

Earlier I stumbled across a PSU at work in a machine they were tossing out that has it's own switch for turning it on or off and could run it exclusively for the pump system. It's currently in use right now but I can set it up if needed.

lol am I the only one that sees a 1000 watt PSU as running both my computer and a homemade car stereo setup for music to blast while on the computer? ha ha ha ha


I say that because Im on my 430 thats overpowering my computer quite nicely, and 1000 watts would leave me with nearly 650-700 watts to throw at a car cd player head unit and a pair of 6.5 component setup. :EvilLaughAtApartmentNeighbors:

people use the word epic way too much




I think since they have had so much time to work on it, seeing how old 939 is, it better overclock like a son of a gun on crack


at least I hope so. what are some OC rivals it might have? a DFI board? Im not very wise int eh ways of 939 mobo's apparently

Haha I felt epic was necessary since it's nearly impossible to find 939 era stuff at an affordable/reasonable price.

How is the cable management inside your case? Do you think there are any dead spots inside?

Good luck
Cable management is decent for the most part, and as far as I know there are no dead spots. My only issue at the moment is the balance of intake to exhaust CFM. I have 2 intake fans on the front, the bottom supplies fresh air for the HDD's, bottom GPU and the PSU. The upper fan supplies air for the top GPU, and both the NB and SB.
Then of course I have my BT which has my Xiggy Dk fan (89CFM), and the only exhaust fan I have is 1 120mm. I need to add another one at least if I were to close up the case. I haven't changed my configuration since using my 939, so I'm not running any top fans as those would cause poor temps on my DFI, however, with the location of the DrMos heat sink (to the left of the CPU socket), it might actually be beneficial to cooling.

At any rate, from what I've noticed, overall temps stay lower with the side panel off. And that's the whole system in general, all components and peripherals, as they all get an ample supply of "fresh" air, not some air that has already been heated cooling something else. I'll experiment around with it and post up my results.

I've been becoming more and more curious about water cooling. I've been thinking about trying that out before I go more exotic.

What's your opinion of that Corsair H50 CPU cooler?

Yes sir, that AsRock board is nice. I wish I had the extra cash for one. I wonder if you can control IMC voltage independently like on the AM3's. If so, that would be very nice, I would imagine that it would yield MUCH better overclocking results.
I have this theory as to why it's harder to get good results with 939's/AM2. Unlike the AM3, the IMC (CPU-NB) is not adjustable on the 939's. So this thought ran through my head: when increasing CPU voltage on a 939 you also raise the IMC voltage, well from my AM3 testing I've found that too much IMC (CPU-NB) voltage caused more instability rather than helping stabilize it. In my theory this is exactly why it's so hard to get above 3.0/3.1 stable. If the CPU-NB voltage is indeed separate from the CPU voltage on this new AsRock board, then I would imagine that we should be seeing some really nice overclocks, provided you can get the HTT high enough

And a little off topic: Well I got that smokin black friday deal on a HDTV from Target, 32" for $246 . At any rate, I hooked everything up and used that new (to me anyway) method of hooking stuff up using the YPbPr connectors from my DVD player. Well when I watched a movie (300) it only plays at 480i, which is OK I suppose but it makes the picture sort of pixelated. Why isn't it playing at 720? I imagine that, that would make the picture sharper.
I'm a little out of the loop on TV/home audio as I don't mess with it as much anymore.
Any ideas?
