Dream Rig Rebuild

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Rebuilding last year's dream rig. It was such a step up for me I decided not to OC a single thing.

I've had a few hundred hours of happy gaming over the last year and have decided to install a second GPU and finally benchmark this puppy.

I want some good before and after benches. All the specs are in my profile under Ripsaw.

Here are the guts all shiny and new a year ago, sans GPU.

Right now it only has one 5870 in it. I want to record some benches as it is, and then document the improvement when I add the second one.

I'm trying to run Heaven 2.1, but can't get it to open full screen for some reason. I will post the results in this thread:

I just ran the recommended bench and it looks pretty bad. Any thoughts?

Again, this is with only one 5870 installed.

So do you think it is PC bound? Even with the CPU at 2.8 I expected a little better.

4.0 is definitely my goal though!

Here she is, trusty and dusty.

l

The only modding I did to this case was to add an extra intake fan on the bottom.

After a year of gaming in a house with pets things weren't looking so good.

5304426880_bc1d0e6ec3_b.jpg

So I decided to reinstall it with a filter. For this trick I used some very thin pantyhose.

The electrical tape looks ghetto, but once the fan is secured its frame seems to do most of the work of holding the fabric body in place.
