Hi bud, I know it will work as otherwise I would not be writing this. I am using one to run my Vertex 4, which has my Windohs OS on it. If you look under the GPU you can see it in this photo, sorry about all the dust.



Remember to change your boot settings in your BIOS. Then sit back and enjoy the true speed of your SSD's. thumb.gif

thats a thing of beauty and omg i finally have been able to set my cpu-nb over 1.3 and am running my stuff solid now with lower temps cus the nb has good voltage at 1.45 i'm ecstatic and can't wait for it to arrive apparently it's coming from the uk. i will be upgrading to a cosmos 2 case when i can and a h100i after i get the 100i i will run a prime95 for an hour then submit my new settings

Hey I wanted to try to convince you not to get one of these, or at least consider a high end air cooler instead... assuming your case can handle the depth. This is the review that convinced me that air cooling is not as bad as people make it out to be, at least when compared to an all in one water cooler setup (The argument could be made if you go high end water that you can achive better temps, and quieter sound). Notice in this review that they are using your H100i and they put that thing all the way up into performance mode (so any aspect of going quiet on water is completely lost) and at that fan speed it still does not beat out a Noctua.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/cpu_cooler_roundup_2013_q1_review,3.html

I personally have a Noctua NH-D14 and love it! I was originally going to get an all in one water because I thought it was better and this changed all of that. My fans run at full speed and I promise you, all I hear from my case are my case fans (I have a HAF case, so it has a number of fans on it). According to the reviews it runs cooler, runs quieter, and if you look at the current prices it is also much cheaper than the H100i.

I am not hating on the H100i, it is a solid product from everything I have heard, but the Noctua is just that much better. This is what I am currently using in my case, I got a 4.0 clock speed without breaking a sweat on the proc under full load. I keep my house at a very warm 75 - 80F and with my current overclock I am only hitting 37 -38C under a full load that I have let stay in that state for like 8 hours, Never got hotter. That was it for the peak temp. Realistically I could go much higher, I just haven't taken the time to tinker with it.

Horus:

I was not trying to suggest that I would be going Intel lightly. Trust me, the cost of switching is really dramatic, and is a primary stopping point for me. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel with the recent announcement that AMD will actually be bringing Steamroller to market this year! It is unknown if it will hit the consumer market at the same time, but I have hope that I will be seeing a steamroller chip in my PC soon. They are suggesting a 30% performance increase over Bulldoser which should FINALLY mean I can upgrade my old Phenom II, and we should hopefully see motherboards hitting the market with all the newest bells and whistles.

I don't view intel on quite the same level as Apple. At least with intel there is plenty of real world examples backing that their performance is just that much better given how applications are currently coded. So it isn't just a high price for no gain at all, like it is with Apple.

That being said, it has been shown that AMD is actually much better at doing multicore processing. The problem, as you say, is that nothing much out there really uses those cores. But it would be interresting to see something like Crysis 3 or BF3 on AMD compared to Intel (while sticking with a single graphics card)... unfortunately... noone does these tests it seems. I mention these two specifically because they were coded to take advantage of multiple cores. Not only that, but it has GPU offloading built in, so the games will dump data onto your CPU to use both things to help render the game.

There is actually a chess program floating around these forums which people submit their results and they have a running list of the top performing processors and such... This was surprising to me for two reasons... first is that the Phenom II x6 isn't just better than any FX processor but it is dramatically better. Second is that Intel faces the same limitation in that their original i7 processor (the 960 I think it was) is also at least keeping toe to toe with all the current intel processors in the 2000k and 3000k ranges. All this program does is compute all possible moves in the future to create a "smarter" AI. Anyway, point is, I wouldn't upgrade to either of the current gen processor line-ups if you are running a high end Phenom II proc... you just wont see the performance gains I think you are hoping for.

Where I support a change is in motherboards, but given the suggestion on that addon card, I think that would actually solve any current issues except PCI-e 3.0 until AMD steps up their game and gives us NATIVE support in their chipset (which will hopefully come with steamroller... there is actually ONE board, and its an ASUS, that has PCI-e 3.0 support, but I have no clue where you can buy it from). Personally, I am a cheap bastard, and am willing to ride out the slow speed of my board until I can buy something new... I just cannot justify spending 50 - 60 dollars on this addon card... thats like half the price of a motherboard.

sorry for the long rant... again...

yeah the 3.0 board is smoke and mirrors since when you search to buy it it's not findable i don't even think findable is a word.. but the board is the sabertooth gen.3 ver 2.0... and as for cooling i'll be upping my anti since i did some research having been tasked with building a product list for a limitless funded extreme gaming machine.. just a product list grant you. so i'll probably get me one of these in the distant future. "EX2-755 (Exos-2 V2) Liquid Cooling System, Aluminum" and as for the card yes i definitely hope it works as intended the numbers should show upwards into the 500 MB/s range for a s3 6GB/s connection and a pci-e 2.0 x4 slot delivers more through-put than that requires. so it should function exactly as it states. noticeable speed increases are what we see which i expect will be amazing.

Hi guys, air coolers are fine I used to have a Scythe Zipang and it worked fine. Well after I stripped a few fins off of it because it covered the first two RAM slots. As for Intel and AMD I am not one of these must love one or the other, they are after all consumer products. I wont buy Intel for financial and a personal dislike of their business model, Apple on the other hand are something akin to Satan. I do not need to go down that road, as for air or liquid cooling, it matters little as they are both good solutions to a simple problem - HEAT!

The addon card is great for me as I have lots of HDD's, and I like to be able to add more, and more and even more. So the next mobo I get will have the card put in to be able to add extra HDD's/Blu Ray drives. To be honest the only reason I have water cooling is because Amazon gave us a full refund on a Tablet I bought for my misses a couple of years ago. They told us to keep the tablet and gave me enough money to buy the XSPC water cooling kit. Thank you Amazon. thumb.gif

looks like i'll have to be taken off the roster the Evo died on 4/6/13 around 430 eastern. sad face.. went back to my crosshair 2 formula and still can't wait for that sata 3 controller card. my onboard marvell aren't allowing me to enable ahci so installing it with the card is gonna be clutch to get my trim support back. gonna also be getting a new 1090t seems it suffers snags under load. wich means it's a good thing i use Tune-up Utilities i can shut everything down in order to run something properly...without snags
post #548 of 611
That is very sad indeed, what a great loss. My Mobo gave a BSOD and forgot it's bootmgr this morning, now I know why. Be strong for the RAM, GPU and PSU, they will need you to help support them through this difficult time.

Ok, so I've just returned from vaca and thought about the single issue I've been having and that is my rig shutting down when playing some of my games. Namely Crysis 3, which is really pissing me off 'cause this rig when first built was running the ballz and had no problems with ANY games. But to start off here's the spec:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 960T unlocked to an X6 | Motherboard: ASUS M4N98TD Evo | RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1333MHz | GPU's: nVidia GeForce GTX 560Ti 1gb x 2 running in SLi Mode | Monitor: Standard Sansui Flatscreen 40" TV | OS: Win7 Ultimate 64 bit | Cooler: Zalman CNPS7500-AlCu CPU Fan | HDD: Western Digital WL500GSA3272 500Gb 7200 Mostly for play | PSU: Ultra X3 850W(recently switched out from a 1000W Kingwin).

Now I think I've done just about everything to solve this problem, but guys I"M STUMPED! I've switched out the PSU, the processor fan, blow out out this rig at least once a month, and ran a diagnostic on the memory that came back Ok with no problems found(Used the utility on Win7). I think I might need to sort out the airflow issue by tightening up my cable management and been considering breaking out the dremel and blowing the lid out of my rig for an additional fan, but I'm not sure if I'm being a bit extreme. HELP!!!

The ram will be installed on a Crosshair V in a couple of months after rebuilding my old RoG crosshair 2 system with what i had left of the evo i wanna go back To a RoG system. the PSU is a beast connected to a 3000 MV ups that has kept it safe through lightning strikes while i watch my moms pc bite the dust the reason it happened was human error due to impatience so yeah i'm nowhere near perfect i'm just neurotic over stuff sometimes oh the new sata controller arrives tommorow i'll let you know how it goes
