Thread Starter 






Eyefinity is making me dizzy as hell in FPS games like Black ops.

ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!!

Current stats

Phenom 2 X6 1090T OC'd to 4Ghz
Corsair 8Gb DDR 3 Dominator
Corsair TX750
Corsair A70
2x c300 one for OS the other for Games
2x 120gb 7200RPM WD drives in RAID 0 for page file and temp storage
no optical drive (don't need one, all my discs are in .ISO format on my server)
creative XFi titanium
MSI 890FXA-GD65 motherboard
DUAL XFX RAdeon HD 6950's!
Ultra Aluminus Case which I like and prefer!

Got it all together for under $1300 reusing my old monitors and an my old case. I know there are better cases out there but I like this one and airflow isnt a prob. CPU temp is 35C idle and GPU temps are never above 50C.

Feedback: it looks very cramped in that case! Doesn't look like you have much airflow going on there O_O

If you feel dizzy I think it's because you're extremely close to your screens, try sitting back a bit, it'll help a lot.

Otherwise great build! I hope you're enjoying it

While it might look a little cramped it is moving quite a bit of air, I have two 120MM fans moving air in where the optical drives would be and then another 120mm right there on the bottom...

Oh. That is probably helping a lot!
I guess the CPU HSF draws the air into the PSU?

yes it is, and since the air coming off the A70 isn't really that hot I don't see why it would hurt to just have the PSU suck it out..

I tried it but I don't like how the rendering is actually "behind" the bezel when that is on. your brain ignores the bezels anyways when playing on it just like looking out a window.
