Its been a very very long time since i posted on here and much has changed with my system.
First off I am now an Intel i7 2600k owner!....Complete with a man sized ATX Gigabyte ga-z68-ud5-b3 motherboard!
The AMD system unfortunately had to go as Rendering with keyshot 3 was becoming painfully slow ( took 47 hours to render something the i7 2600k can do in 3 hours).
Secondly the sapphire 5850 is gone! been replaced with 2x sapphire 6850's......I actually was suppose to order another 5850 to crossfire but i didn't read the listing properly on amazon and accidentally ordered the 6850
so I had to get another one as i really really wanted to try CF
I know some of you my think i am mad for going sandy when ivy is just around the corner but i got a really really good deal on the gear
anyway here is some pictures (sorry they are a bit dark)
Did a slight mod to my case to tidy the 24 pin power cable up still waiting for my sleeved extension to arrive via snail mail
also notched the case slightly to allow for my sata cables to exit without bending
And finally i notched my hand made psu cover out to allow the USB and control cables to pass through without showing their ugliness
here is some images that took only 45 mins to render with the i7 @ 4.3ghz (its a uni project i have been working on).....this would have taken nearly seven hours on my x3 450 @ 3.6
let me know what you guys think?
