Thanks
Hydra only works with 9xxx, 2xx, 400, series Nvidia and 4XXX,5XXX IIRC ATI

Well, that was till I head that you actually use Can of Air! Trust me, youngsters, that is so yesterday ....

Invest instead in a DataVac Electric Duster. That would clean up eclipseaudio4's rig in a hot sec. (Well, almost that quickly.)

Geez, you guys are my heroes no more! Can of Air? Ha!

Wait until I start cooling with Liquid Nitrogen!
I have one better my Air compressor!

If you get to Liquid Nitrogen before me Geek, I swear to god I will go back to my lab and soak my computer in borrowed LHe just to hit 23K (-250c) and 8.5 GHz.

68xx Series and the GTX 580

I think the 8600 GTS can run Physx though so you could use that with the 6970 with or without Hydra interfering.

Thanks for the correction I knew I was forgetting something.

Let me tell you something about trying to get my 5870 and 8800GTS to play nice..... I am pissed! I have tried quite a few different ways and have givin up for now. Yes I was able to have both hooked up in slots 1 and 3 but no I could not seem to get it to work correctly (5870 main with GTS doing Phsyx)


I think my rig is complete.(minus a 1.5TB drive)
I know right! Seems insane! But I can play whatever I want @ 1080P it's nice and quiet and I dont see a reason to get more HW for it

Now in about 2 years when I am done with my associates in IT I will be making a new rig, and this one will go to my son. But until then I think I may be set Once things calm down around here a bit I am going to start setting it up the way I want it.(move GPU to slot 3, better wire management and some cleaning )

I am going to have to put the OC/benchmarks post on hold for a bit cause I need to get working on my school work But I will get it up just need to finalize somethings in my head and then start setting it up the way I think Will work nicely

Congrats on the Overclock for that 5870 Eclipse, that's impressive even with water. Are you planning to run it at those speeds 24/7? if So then from the benchmarks I've been seeing you're basically running a 6970 well done

yeah I dont really do clocks for bench only. These are 24/7 clocks I might be able to squeeze out some more even, just need more time... AS5 has not even set in. Man I keep forgetting to get MX2 or what ever it is... O well almost out of AS5 so I will have to order one of these days Personally I dont like IC7 because it scratched up my AMD 965 I have a bunch of generic crap but I only use it to hold things in place like washers.

I'm with you on the ICD but for different reasons....I think diamond is probably still the superior substance on paper but in reality it's difficulty spreading like some others almost completely negates the benefits of using diamond. I've gone through a tube of 24k and my first tube of 7k mounting and remounting and never once got temps as good as I have now(and had within 10 mins of powering of system after first mount attempt) using the top tier shin etsu(red cap).
I even tried thinning the ICD some with a dab of isopropyl followed by a quick mount/power up but this was largely a failure though someone else might do better at it than I did, in which case it may edge the shin etsu again as I'm only talking about a few degrees difference in the first place, hehe. But....as we all know....every little bit, right?

I found that what I had to do was put it into a HOT cup of water to thin it out a bit. That helped a LOT but I still had to retighten after it started to spread and I'm not really down with that. I might try that indego Extreme but @ $15 for two IDK

Yeah i did near-boiling water a few times too...but the problem was more in the time from when you place on cpu and it cools before you can get a decent mount tightened and powered up...my speculation anyway.
