Quick Sync goes live in the next version of OSX (Mountain Lion) that is rumored to be released at the end of this month. from what's I've been reading (now that you mentioned it, I'm looking at a mobo/cpu upgrade) there's not a lot of difference in the Z68 and the Z77 chipsets (other than PCIE 3). i've been looking at the GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3, though I'm unsure what chip i would want to go with it. Coming from the i7 860 that i have now, i don't want to give up having 4+4 cores, but it looks like the i3 and i5 can outrun the 860, so who know....confused.gif

btw, here's my current layout:

oh and the card is literally a dummy pci, and has an old lan card back plate on it with the mic and switch for changing programs, going to modify those myself to be on the front of my case wink.gif

Well here's the internals of my pc. I think my motherboard is outdated. There is only one four pin plug and that's taken by the cpu heatsink fan.
Found out my GC is a Gigabyte HD 5770 and my ram with is four x2GB sticks of PC3-10666 at 9-9-9-24 at 1.5V. This case is cheap. It's all held together by philip's head screws. The power supply isn't modular and it's mounted at the top of the tower in the back. One 200 Blud LED fan draws air from the side and a small slit under the front beazel allows air to enter from the front. The front it's self is completely plastick. If your asking benchmark scores and what specific things about my pc that's not in my rig building thingy on here. Your basically asking a drunk person to walk a straight line.
I just not that good getting around the info. I bought this rig off Ebay...I think over a year or two ago. I haven't really gotten into custom builds till I wanted to upgrade my own rig. Might be better off building one from scratch.

Just put in what you know, this way I don't have to keep going back and trying to find posts that you have put your components in.
Any ways is this your PSU?
http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2150079
If so, the very first thing you need to do is replace that. It is a super cheap PSU and could kill your PC even if it doesn't blow. If it does blow, that thing could chatch on fire. That thing is a time bomb just waiting to go off. If you need help picking one let us know.

First off, that looks clean and awesome! I'm curious as to know what size tubing that is? And also, how hard was it to mod that bottom hole for the radiator?

Mentioned something weird:
After replacing my pc horizontally my temps dropped about 20 degrees..
Is this normal? as you all know I'm using a H40 too cool my cpu (FX-8120)
anyways I think my temp-problem is solved now!

You might have had an air bubble trapped.

Welcome! That is a lot of horse power you got packed in there, how are your temps holding up with out having a slot in between those cards? BTW put a space between the : and the text in your sig to fix the gunners

My i7-920 is just fine @3.8GHz 24/7, but I am NOT overclocking my videocards biggrin.gif Even the extra 140mm fan in the back of the 5.25" bays and the extra 120mm laying on top of the HDDs aren't doing much.

The only thing wrong with the EVGA X58 SLI-LE mobo is that the other PCIe x8 slot is the last one. I'd need an 8 expansion-slot case to move my 2nd GPU away from the 1st and not be stuck at x4.

Eventually I'll need to move these guts into a bigger home frown.gif and get one of those 120mm SLI connectors so I can crank everything up a couple notches...

Oh - thanks for the correction, got it fixed.

Thanks, man! thumb.gif I have an oddball SLI GTX580 setup, I know.

The top one is a regular reference-cooler EVGA SuperClocked with no labels and the bottom one is a DS (Double-Shot) Superclocked that I got for $250 in brand-new condition back in December.

I'd prefer that they were the same exact card, but they are clocked the same and have the same amount of memory - and I could not pass up that price for the second GPU.

I drink a lot of NOS and they send you gear for codes - got a bunch of stickers and very carefully trimmed out the lettering from one and stuck it on there because if you're ugly you may as well go whole hog!

It used to be much better-looking before the second card was added - the cables were perfect and I didn't have to hide my SSD or wedge in that extra fan:

No Ghost. It's an Orion 585W. Says it on the PS but I think I am deciding on just saving up and building one from scratch. I put together a list of components on Newegg.com that I wanted and total comes out to be...a whopping $2,200 (It's actually lower but I rounded off.) I can post all the items I want to get to make my pure gaming rig. Though don't ask me how to put my rigs on the replies I do.
Sorry it took me a while to respond. When I took my pc off the power and cleaned it. Something happened and it seemed to have wiped my OS. So the OS said it wasn't genuine. Luckily I have the case it came in. Restored my OS with the Product Key and the x64 bit version of W7.

Oh I got some Afterburner data. I don't know what it all means so I'm just posting it here.
