Aw man bro, I've been following your log for a while now, it's sad you got rid of watercooling!! frown.gif I love how you noted the transformation over the years. Glad you are able to carry it around now though; did you consider using an mATX watercooled rig?

As much as I loved watercooling, it took away too much time and money. tongue.gif

I think I'll stay on air for a good while.

Time for an update, got rid of the 2x R9 290X and moved to a Gigabyte GTX980Ti Gaming G1.

Well this is a bit downgrade, but a single card is better than a cfx, enjoy that beast smile.gif

I expect your return to socket 2011 plus custom water cooling loop tongue.gif

Actually, with the stock boost of the Gigabyte G1 (1366MHz on my card) it already beats the 2x R9 290X I had, at least in the two games I've tried (Battlefield 4 and GTA V), so far it's not a downgrade, but an upgrade. biggrin.gif

I won't be going back to LGA 2011, I really like the 4790k. tongue.gif

The 980ti is FAR from being a downgrade from 2x 290x cards. Plus way more Vram, and way better drivers. Now you can use all the Nvidia only features in games as well. Oh, not to mention how much cooler it runs too. Yeah, downgrade LOL.

I love my TX and wouldn't give it up for anything AMD has to offer that's for dame sure tongue.gif

You'll be way happier with that 980ti, and running 1 card will play so much smoother. Not sure what the Power Limit Max is on the G1, but I can mod your stock bios, ONLY to raise the Power Limit up to 120%, but not change anything else for you if you like. That will let you boost at 1500mhz with no throttling and still have all the features still work as in throttling down once it hits the temp you set it too. I modded my 780ti's and my TX bios for 120% Power Limit and it's great. I run my TX at 1450mhz all day long, but I'm also on water and my card is usually at 32-40c while gaming.

If you want me to mod your stock bios for you, just let me know bud thumb.gif

Also, I help a lot of people out on overclocking their cpu to get the most out of it safely. I run my 4790K at 5ghz 24/7 .. I have bios pics of my settings in my build log on page 3 I think if you want to take a look. I'm sure yours would need a little tweaking from the settings I use, but we could get you up past 4.6ghz for sure.

Now that I no longer have the custom water cooling loop, it was time to go back into a smaller case. rolleyes.gif

Say good bye to the NZXT Switch 810, and say hi to the Corsair 450D:





I am really liking having a smaller case, easier to move and the quality build of this case is so much better than the Switch 810.... I love it. tongue.gif

Next step is to replace the rear fan with an AF120 White LED Quiet Edition which is on the way, and I may sleeve the PSU cables. tongue.gif
