as far as performance goes its works exactly as it should and i expected. and i got it for the price of an EVGA Bstock 570. im gonna experiment with some things.


---edit----
playing with voltages on the HD led me to realize that its cooler has a very hard time keeping things cool when volts are set higher than ~1023mV. load temps while looping heaven @ 963mV hovered around 70c while testing at at 1100mV rose load temps to 90+c. gonna test and find the sweet spot to keep load temp in the low 80s high 70s. all in all even when running these at stock i am extremely impressed with the frame rate increases in Crysis 2 and Metro 2033.

Are you certain it's not two USB and one FireWire?

the 570HD blows hot air horizontally in all directions. i wonder what kind of temps people get with sli 560TIs.
If the top card it going to be drawing the heated air that is expelled by the bottom card, it's going to run hot. Mesh panel with fans and custom fan profiles should keep the temps in check. Undervolting seems like you could lose some stability.

I see two cables ending with designation 1394 , and only one says usb.

Dont tell me I was supposed to get TWO that says USB and one firewire (which makes sense, considering there are four USB ports, so two per header on mobo?).

I'm not gonna return the case for something this dumb though. I don't have need for that many front USB ports (but I do need one firewire).

Did I get a retarded case? LOL

@screaming oranges - just contact Corsair customer service, they will send you out the right cable most likely for free.

Hmm, wait, I think they just put the wrong cap label on the cable.

TWO cables have the following pin config: 4 pins and an empty slot on one side, then the same on the other side.
ONE cable has 4 pins (3 pins, one empty slot, then 1 pin) on one side and 3 pins on the other side.

Some googling revealed the following:





This means that one of my cables just has the firewire designation written on it, but its actual pin layout is that of USB.

Moral of the story: never give up until you know WHY!

@longroadtrip

Hey man, I applied your suggested fix and froze for the first time today. :/
It was running smooth for the past couple of days. This is pretty annoying, seems like almost every company making SATA3 SSDs have issues with their products.

@deadsnow

sorry to hear that. My system had rebooted itself to the black screen o' death when I got home yesterday. First crash since Tuesday. It's mainly a stopgap fix until a new firmware comes out. If I only have 1 crash a week until then, I can live with it.

I was also reading that there may be a problem with Intel and their IRST software. Not quite sure what to think of that yet. It's weird, I know people who are having absolutely no problems with the drives, and then I know people who can't even get windows to install on them. I have a tendency to think that the problem is buried somewhere in the LPM configuration though. My problems are only when the system is idling for extended periods or a sudden heavy load on the processor and drives (requiring more power consumption.)

I have a couple more things that I want to try out. If they work, I'll be sure to let you know what I did.

Great. I have everything set up and I can't find my darned Windows 7 OS disc.... how frustrating!
post #2429 of 18217
I read through the 200 some odd pages once before, dont feel like doing it again.

Can someone tell me the optimal fan placement for GFX cards that exhaust inside the case?

Was it top intake, front intake, rear exhaust?

Have my rig apart to revamp, thinking of replacing stock fan controller with something that has more control and cutting some more grills out to free the airflow of the fans(cut front mesh already want to do rear and top).

Negative Ghost Rider, PCB for the USB/FIreWire/Mic/Headphone is not a piece they can ship out/for sale. If it there was an issue, it would be an RMA. I found this out the other day.......

One problem down, one to go.

I don't think there is a definitive answer, just varying opinions , no more then one or two people agreeing. There is someone working on putting together a guide on fan configurations, but he stated won't be ready till end of summer at the earliest.
