Oh the goodie bag.
So I have a new CoolerMaster Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W
(it's a standard size PSU, same as my current one anyways and it might even weigh a little less plus it's completely modular, mine is only semi-modular), 5 CoolerMaster Turbine Master Mach 1.2
, 5 CoolerMaster Excalibur 600-2000 RPM
, and a Kill-A-Watt to use to measure how much juice I'm pulling at max load with all three graphics cards overclocked and pulling juice.
On another note if I can get the temps under better control my new chip can do 4.8 GHz with 1.400v-1.450v depending on what it's doing oh and the best part is that's with the CPU PLL at 1.55v and overvoltage off! The only problem is it's running hot like 78C while folding in Linux, which makes me wonder if my last one frying was because the combination of heat and the fluctuations got to it. My old chip (seemed to) be running around that speed and temp with 1.48v and pll overvoltage on, I'm wondering if my TIM has gone bad.
I have a little bit of what CoolerMaster packages with their coolers and some masscool paste
, sadly all 3 tubes of my artic silver turned into bricks (they were only 1-3 years old properly stored)
Yay! Glad to hear things are going well, despite the fan failure
I just got back from the computer store, 2700k and ARES 2133Mhz RAM in tow. Ended up getting the 2133MHz stock RAM, as it was only $10 more then 1600MHz xD Going to slap it all into my P67, and see what I can get from it
With any luck, we'll all get some nice stable clocks, and it'll all go awesome for the Team Comp next month!
[EDIT] So... After pulling everything out, and putting it together, seems I forgot one crucial part to a water cooling system that I don't have. Mainly.... Water
. Yeah, I feel pretty..... silly. So this beautiful rig'll sit here all night, empty and wishing it could fold. I'm jumping out of town tomorrow morning, so I'll pick some up and hopefully post some results tomorrow night
