Nuking the i7 (Updated: 1/25/09)

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
I'm making the move to i7 as you can pretty much tell from the title (not really). Anyway, everything is ordered and set in stone. Here are the "before" and "after" specs:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.6GHz (450x8)
to
Intel Core i7 920

EVGA 780i A1 (450FSB 24/7)
to
Asus Rampage II Extreme X58

G.Skill PQ 8GB (4x 2GB) DDR2-1000 @ DDR2-900 (1:1)
to
Corsair Dominator 12GB (6x 2GB) DDR3-1600

2x EVGA GTX 260 (192SP)
to
2x EVGA GTX 280 SC

Creative X-Fi Failtal1ty
to
Creative X-Fi Titanium (NO MORE OF THAT ~censored~ LOGO!!!)

Stinger V8 (brass top)
to
Swiftech Apogee GTZ

And everything else remains the same.

Somewhere during the week

I picked up the i7 920 from a friend who helped me pick it up at Microcenter. For starters it was only $250, and considering the Q6600 was $300 when I bought it back at G0 launch, it's a good deal.

Christmas Day

Everything else ordered.

And then I got bored. So then I looked at the i7 box again. Here it is:


It's blue, very blue.


Batch 838A.


Ta-da! Come to think of it, it's only a metal square.


Size comparison of i7 920 heatsink vs general Core 2 heatsink. Not much bigger, but it's enough to cost me $10 for the waterblock mounting kit.

More coming soon. Not too soon but soon. Mid next week would be my guess.

1/14/09

One by one, everything eventually arrived. The board came last though (yesterday). Anyway, I call BS. All these shiny things sitting here in the middle of finals week is surely distracting. I couldn't resist taking some pics.

Let's start with something random: the Apogee GTZ. It's fitted with the LGA1366 mounting kit as shown.


Next up, a couple Corsair boxes.


Inside, I found these.


MOAR!


Then the GTX280s. I bought the reference clocked one but they shipped me the Superclocked ones. I'm not complaining.


The pair of USS NVidia docked at port G15.


Then here comes the SOB that took so damn long to arrive: Rampage II Extreme.


And then some plastic buttons and voltage measure points.


That's it for now. The building will have to wait 'til this weekend when finals are over.

1/15/09

I lied. It's only Thursday night and I couldn't restrain myself. Although I still don't have time to physically work on the system. My subconscious took over and said that something must be done today. So, I've initiated step-up for one of the 280s. #76 in queue for the GTX295.

Once that 295 gets shipped from EVGA, I'll start the step-up on the second 280. At this rate, it seems that it'll take until somewhere in February for both 295s to be installed. But nonetheless, I'm very happy to announce: Quad-SLI coming soon, or Subway Footlong SLI. Whatever.

Early morning of 1/20/09

Here's a little teaser: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=488644

1/25/09

The Swiftech NBMAX block arrived and installed. The rig is ready to be shown to the public.

Let's start with a plain side view with the side panel off.


And then this neat little LCD poster.


BD drive, just for the hell of it.


CPU and PWM area. Interestingly, the MOSFET heatsinks never feel hot, just a little bit of warmth. On the other hand, the i7 is like a nuclear reactor.


Right under the CPU area, there's this logo. Behind this logo, it's got an "extreme engine" chip that I have no idea what it does.


I like spaceships.


A whole new look for the buttons on the board.


Everything above, all packed nicely into this awesome case.


Last but not least, some new case badges.


And no, this thread doesn't end here. There's one last thing to do next weekend.

As is I can easily jump over 6GB already. Since I'll be needing more than that, I thought I might as well fill up the other slots with the same modules. I'm also interested in how Vista x64 will act with even more memory.

You will lose triple-channel memory bandwidth then.
