In the siggy: GIGABYTE GV-N56GOC-1GI

So yes, the regular one.

I've been trying to get everythign I need to know about the 600 series for like 10 minutes but I simply can't find any official stuff nor anything complete. Help would be very appreciated smile.gif

Imo the 560ti is a very nice card. I had one, also had two running in sli for a while. That pny is a good choice if you plan to watercool. (its a reference card) And yes the EK-FC560 GTX V2 will fit on it.

The 560ti can overclock very well. Which will put it about equal to a 570, just with a little less ram. You don't seem to be a huge gamer so I would say this is a good choice. You can later on add another if you like in sli.

I used to play ALL the time, only live for that, waste all my money on f2ps and within 4hours without gaming I'd feem knots in my stommach and get angry/ frustrated. Got back to beig normal in july lol. Real life is way better but you can't realize that when you're like was, you think youdon't need people, that you've got online buddies and all.

I really only played F2ps though (after guild wars), 300€ on FLYFF (gay game, really, no game actually has a point when you think of it but that one... was ALL about monster basjing), 700€ on CrossFire (z8games version, the staff were sick people, had 4600 legit non spammed and long forum posts). Recently a european.company released a european version of CrossFire and I'm not stupid, I can see it when people treat you right, make good choice and all and within a month of testing I decised to stay (still have to sell.my z8games account). I really don't play video games much anymore and don't feel the nees to. If I ever do it's with a real life friend (most of the time on theur Xboxes). I also have L4D2, black ops, killing floor, css (thqt game really sucks) and a couple of others I can't remember now.
The reason I prefer F2P games is because they evolve unlike CODs and BFs who rarelt get new maps and weapons and when they do, it's not much and you have to pay for them.


So yes, we could say I'm not much of a gamer anymore but I can still kick ass with my gay gts 240 wink.gif.
I don't need power to play that CrossFire game btw... poor graphics tbh. I just figured making my own rig, learning all about overclocking and watercooling would be a good idea, a lot of fun and could fill my free time (my dad lives 3hours away from me and I have to spend 12weekends a year, most of the holidays and more there. Pretty bored since it's the country side and my friends obviously aren't there with me).

Well I'll ordered that card before this weekend then. Thanks for the advice.

Does anybody have a photp of a stock phantom, with and without the 2meter sleeved blue L.E.D kit please ? For only 17°€ I figured it was a fair deal knowing I wouldn't get the watercooling, new fans or anything in a whilr and the pictures they show us are simply lies (there's no way a single 200mm LED fan would light the case like that).

Gotta run have fun guys.

Then, you can build from there. Since I built mine, I have added a second radiator, different pump and GPU blocks... thats the best part of watercooling... you can always find something to tinker with.
Lightsout/Num1son, where can i get that top jig for the 360 rad? I want to change the way mine mounts because of the factory ridges in the 200mm mounting holes for the fans, doesnt let me rad sit flush, and cant do push pull because of it.

PM replied...................................Finally biggrin.gif


Working all the time, sucks. I seem to miss about 15 pages of posts before I get back in here lol.

Finally got the 2700K. Finally a great chip. 5.0ghz at 1.39V as opposed to my previous 2600K which needed 1.5V.

I'm kinda dissapointed that the Phantom only has 2 front USB ports and the 410 has 4. Makes no sense to me.

Because I don't have a USB 3.0 board, I'm stuck with just one front USB port. Where as the 410 atleast has 2 for each...doh.gif

yes, but then you gotta leave the front door open. I mean, they revised the phantom and added 3.0 support, so why not just have added more usb ports in general to go with the obvious decision choice they made for the 410. Just sayin'
