Sounds like a good deal.

I feel you about the useless upgrades. I don't need the power that I have.

Well at first they price matched the HX1050 but when I showed the coupon at the register they said I could only choose 1 between the 2 so of course I picked the 20% coupon. The 580s I had to do 2 separate transactions to get the 20% off I wanted. Now its a matter of if I can sell my 570s. Damn you OCN, girlfriend is about to throw me in trash can, kid looking at me funny, oh well, as long as I can say I got watercoooled 580s its well worth it!



Edit: Just to clarify the coupons in my thread which I have linked in my signature work as others and myself have tried them. I have yet to get an answers from the mods why my thread was locked and hopefully I don't get banned for stating so.

Wow MC charges $314 for the HX 1050?

What was the total for the cards and the PSU?

Also the coupon in your thread had a blank email field. Is that how it should be? Or should it have been edited in there?

I spent a good deal of money at Microcenter over the last year since starting my build. Countless upgrades later and the only emails I get from Microcetner are spam email about their "deals". Never once gotten a coupon code for anything.

Now after paying for this semester I'm really running dry. But there's so much more I need to buy to finish my build to my liking.
I'm sure we can all squeeze a little closer in together.

Looking good! I'll have to stop by MC some time in the next few days to get the price match done.

I think we're going to have to tape up or staple these cardboard boxes together and build a fort or something, lol.

Haha definitely. I think I still have the box for my refrigerator somewhere. We figured it would make a good ghetto creeper for working on the cars being as it's like 6 feet tall. Lol.

On-topic: to flash the bios on multiple cards is there any other special procedures needed? I'm reading through the guides/pdfs atm.

overclocks and ownership of Zotac 560ti 1275 core and Asus Matrix ROG GTX 580 1001 core both using Corsair H70 mods

I'm not sure if the cards need to be flashed separately or not but I could have sworn I remembered seeing somewhere that all the cards must be the same if you want to flash them at the same time. Saying that a vanilla 580 can't be flashed with the same BIOS as a 580 SC and vice versa.

It's pretty confusing so don't quote me on it. How hard is it to pull a watercooled card and sit it on the PCI-e slot temporarily to do the flash?

Also why are you modding the BIOS? To allow for more than 1.2v?
