Ouch!! See it was the fault of the GPU that burned up the intel boards. Evga believes that the more powerful GPU's are drawing too much off the mobo so they revised the boards by putting more conductor in those paths.
I didn't get it, of course, because the stronger video cards have the 12v connectors, even before they started Pci-e, they started connections from the PSU straight to the video card. It's just one of those things, some boards come out right, some don't but the guys that have had problems have set up a fix. If you get the new mobo and you have a problem maybe you need to look into doing a mod that supplies more power to the mobo in that area. I know where to find the fix but I've never seen in on an AMD mobo.

It is nice but, i don't like the fact that the logo shows through, and it's cheaper
for me to get this:

It's the stock cage from the Antec 900 that I used to have, and I really liked it.

Rayshi.... Neither Sapphire nor the Excel spreadsheet from ATI say exactly how long the PCB is. I can measure the PCB on my 5870 if you want but it's an XFX and it's the original reference design.

Or, you can e-mail Sapphire tech support and ask them the exact dimensions of this card. You may be able to just run the wires through the drive cage or you may have to cut part of the cage out. Rockr didn't say that but others who have put in 5870's have done that to make them fit. If you look on page 1 of this thread, under my name you can see I made one fit without cutting, but I did have to do some bending. Like sooooo many other things, it all depends. Here's Sapphire tech support: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...d=2&psn=000302

The thing about yours is that it fit on the second slot.
My pci-e slot is on the third which would go right into the edge of the HDD Drive cage and the DVD drive cage.
I'm probably end up buying a 5850 instead and not worry about the headache.

Ok, just spent 30 minutes messing with Mindy's Scout because she's using a wireless keyboard from Microsoft and a wireless mouse from Logitech.

Anyway, I was just going to play a game tonight after posting this:
Enermax has an ad out that says they're going to release a new version of the Enermax Apollish fans, they will come in red, blue, green and gold. I linked in a post above to the Enermax fan site but they don't have them out yet. The fans are going to be both 12cm and 14cm and instead of just the 15 constant LED stream they will now have 7 modes:
All On
Lighthouse
Propeller
Triple Propeller
Flash
Vegas
All Off
Let the light show begin!!!
There is a .pdf file that has the ad page in it. If you click on this link it will load a pdf file that is 9.84Mb: http://www.enermaxusa.com/graphics/m...ax_05_10r2.pdf

Second slot? You must be counting from the bottom, it was on the top X16 slot, from the bottom that's third and it did hit where the two cages meet.
Attachment 150299
So your wires would go into the 5.25 bays and out the back into the card.


Yep, that's the decision I made when I built Mindy's Scout and for what she uses it for it's incredibly fast. Crossfire two of them and you'll have all the speed you need. There really isn't a whole lot of difference between a vanilla 5870 and a vanilla 5850, btw overclocking them to the speeds they're now charging $30- or $40- extra for is very easy, it only takes a minute or two. Rockr can tell you how to do that.

Good night all I have to go to the V.A. tomorrow to see if they'll fix my prosthesis.

Here it is.. Good price too.

I saw these a couple of days ago in a shop Decided on at least 1 for the back 120mm exhaust on my rig
I am unsure if it would be worth while changing the top 140mm exhaust to 1 of these 120mm's ?
Also looking at putting 2 shrouds and a 2nd push fan on my H50 rad setup. Anyone got any advice or experience with such a setup ?

I would wait till the PSU arives. Your wire managment will be hard if you put the mobo in and start routing cables before the 24&8pins are routed.

im gonna agree with Defec on this one. if its any thing like my 950TX you are gonna have ALOT of cable to move around and it would be MUCH easier to deal with all the cables before you start plugging stuff into your mobo. and as for the plugs on the end of the card. if you can get the card to fit in the 5.25 inch bays that would be your best option but if that's not possible you should be able to fit them in beside the HDD cage. but if you dont have room for that to work you can always pull out your trusty rotary tool


and on another note! i have a minny update on the reactor project
