post #1241 of 3836
Almost done sleeving everything.. should be done on Friday and will post pics then.. I have removed the other 5970 and opted for TRIFIRE with a 5870 it scales better and I bench the same so I figured why not.. my Brother is happy with his 5970 and was more than happy to give up his 5870... I will post some benchmark results shortly as well I am back to using 10.4 drivers 10.10a and 10.10 really fubared my pc for some reason.

uggg. I think I am going to have to remount the block, temps are reading at about 44*C Idle and 72*C load, I took a temp gun to the radiator when it was at idle and got a reading of about 32*C

My point was that what the majority believe is often simply a manifestation of misinformation. As you would be aware many people have many opinions and scientific study as useful as it is is all too often taken out of context.. Too often statistics and Chinese whispers are somehow taken as gospel.. I don't dispel your advice I merely make an observation and ask others to comment.. If there is one thing I've learned it is that there is RARELY any ONE source of any truth.. What we do here IS NOT an exact science.. Fact.

If one thousand people have the same experience minus one and that one has a voice and means to communicate to the masses.. Chances are with a convincing argument, no matter how nonsensical more will convert.

With regard to @Bios.. If you can provide figures pertaining to bricking rates then we have a debate.. Otherwise it is just one mans opinion, which was probably taken from another and blended with their own.. That is not fact.

With regard to water cooling.. I only speak from my own experiences and those from reputable folk. I.e I have had an E8400 OC'd to 4.5 for two years now on air without issue.."So I, me, personally have operated with extreme settings 24/7". (without including around a dozen other examples) Your experiences are your own and I am not to judge your opinion. I have a right to question however, no? Degradation here is secondary to me therefore given the above, it may not be to you but does that matter..

I question why you are getting defensive.. I was not having a go at anyone simple asking for others opinions so i can make my own value judgment.. Sure i may take the mickey but that is not something to be berated over. Currently my opinion is not based on any custom water cooling experience, otherwise I would have no need to ask.

p.s You do a fantastic work here Mac and again nothing personal..

p.p.s My profession is Software Engineering and I am currently a Test Manager for hundreds of staff within our Government Org. I have a curious mind and sure I have a healthy cynical streak.. But more than naught I am a simple pragmatist.

p.p.s sorry in my haste i missed this and it did make me laugh "

That's like saying, "Drunk driving is fine, I haven't killed anyone yet". Sure it can work, but when you read that it does brick boards why risk it when you can use a different method."

This is not the case.. In my view @Bios would have been recalled if it was not a responsible method of flashing.. You could have likened it to driving with one hand on the wheel, a perfectly acceptable way of driving but not quite as safe as two hands.. I would tend to accept that. Conversely drink driving is irresponsible and if you crash you deserve to pay the penalty and that is why it is 'not legal'.. Not legal being the metaphor here - So when considered your comment does not constitute a valid counter.

And lastly "If there's even a remote chance of instantly bricking your investment, most would not take it. "

This is not true either.. Most in fact would take the half-hazard approach because other methods are either beyond them, they are impatient, or simple aren't aware.. The paranoid minority (could use a subtler term), well that is another story.
lol, wut? I get it, but why bother shedding light on the subject with the possibility of some poor soul(s) bricking their BIOS/board? It would happen, because they've read that some few trusted individuals have had luck with a method very well known by Gigabyte's own support staff to brick boards. We choose to promote a method that's much safer for all of our fellow club members and thread followers.

Looking forward to seeing all the hard work you've done and the outcomes!

I did forget to mention if you decide to re sleeve your cables make sure you have the tools to do it the right way and still set aside alot of time to do it..

@ @BIOS

Some people will never learn, you just have to let them learn the hard way. I see their point, sometimes, but you can never convince them otherwise.


The really bad thing is that those who feel it is ok end up spreading thoughts around on forums, and then some poor soul will only read their comments someday and think it's OK to flash using @BIOS, and then they have to deal with the outcome of a bad flash and wonder how it happened - and then we have to try to explain how/why afterward

PLEASE DO NOT USE @BIOS!!

No offense meant to anyone by this, just voicing my well educated opinion on the subject

Welcome. If you got questions just shoot, enough people in this thread willing to help.


K guys, so what's the verdict on F8c thusfar? Seen one guy on xtremesystems who claimed it kicked ass but that's about it. Anyone else have it running? If so, for or against?

So is the pump feeding the LT or the rad? I can't tell. Feeding the LT from the rad should give you cooler temps.

I use @bios and have never had any issues at all with my bios nor do I fear bricking my mobo. This is a service provided by GA for the mobo so if it does brick it then guess what I will get a new mobo. I will try out F8C bios and let you guys know how well it overclocks for a 980x.
