My First Build. Now with pics! pg. 8 & pg. 12 !!! - Page 9

post #81 of 143
I cable managed my rig around 5 months after I built it, lol.

It however did decrease my temps by around 5C, surprisingly. It was a rats nest in there >.<

Whoa... that's an amazing change in temperature. Luckily, it's cold right now in LA. When it starts to heat up, I'm sure I'll manage my cables then.

I'm just reading up on how to overclock right now.

This. I am curious as well, unless I missed it in an older post. i5 with 750w and 5870 doesn't make sense

What are ya'll talkin' about?

If you haven't noticed... the main thing I'm using my PC for is gaming. I don't need a faster CPU with HT and all when I'm never going to use those features. I don't do intense photoshop work, encoding or intense cpu/thread work.

For a gaming rig, you always spend the most on the GPU, and that's exactly what I did. Everything is working perfectly in my rig.

I'm planning to OC, too so what's the real issue?

i7 makes sense only if all you do all day is jack off on benchmarks.
