it's a generic cheapo logitech
the 212s are just standard tower heatsinks, they'll fit into any case with a 120mm back exhaust fan so the vast majority of them
no problems at all, it's just more bandwidth and no mechanical drive comes close to the limits of SATA II
for mechanical drives SATA III is just marketing BS
Seasonic is one of the best PSU OEMs, and the OEM for many of Antec, Corsair and many other brand's good PSU models
the real problem is the bottleneck caused by whatever CPU fits into a board with PCI-E 1.1
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?266361-EVGA-SR-2-motherboard-tray-measurements might help
the point of a proper loop is better cooling
a H100 meets/barely passes the level of a d14 (depending on the review) with far more noise with the stock fans
PCI-E is backwards compatible
if it's a high end card the lower bandwidth might limit performance but other than that it's fine
case fans won't help
with the sabertooth boards it boils down to three choices
use a top down air cooler
use one of the loud tiny whiny fans
or take the stupid plastic crap off
the problem is that "up for the job" isn't good enough for PSUs
when you're putting $600 of hardware in the hands of one component you want it to be one you can trust to not flip out and throw a few...
here where you're talking about the maximum output of the PSU as 75% of it's advertised 500W which is incorrect
it would be possible to pull 500W from a 500W 75% efficiency PSU (ignoring any...
completely the wrong attitude to have with PSUs
why risk every component in a build with a POS $40 unit when you could be using a $55 seasonic based neo eco, $45 with a current offer
that's not how efficiency works at all
efficiency affects the draw between a PSU and the wall, and has nothing to do with how much a PSU can output
at 80% efficiency if components are pulling 80W...
uhh that doesn't mean it's automatically a good PSU
the neo ecos are already seasonic oem
there's no performance difference anyway
even modern high end cards don't need more bandwidth than 2.0 x16
hell PCI-E 2.0 x8 / 1.1 x16 is still an unnoticeable difference
it's already been done
there's some odd ones in there and all but chocolate aren't too far off actual TIM
the H60 is more suitable for that than a tower heatsink because all the weight is attached to the case rather than hanging off the motherboard, it's one of the few real advantages of closed loops...
the neo eco is already seasonic OEM
probably but I wouldn't bother, TTs PSUs aren't exactly top notch
Ultras are terrible, cancel the order if you still have the option
I think you mean no reason to care
the difference between 1333, 1600 and 1866 isn't even worth the time it takes to set it higher than 1333 in BIOS
the only time you should care is with the AMD...
the capstones are superflower OEMd, they're great
wow no one answered your vague question within 10 hours at the cost of their own time? what a travesty, I'll make sure you get a full refund for the $0 you spent on this service within two weeks
why bother, it's only the stock cooler
and the preapplied paste is fine http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Intel-Stock-Thermal-Compound-Review/1273/4
I don't understand that complaint about the k90
I own a filco with browns and not once have I thought "oh yeah I'm so glad I have tactile feedback on the F7 key" or "I use scroll lock so much, I'm...
no HDD reaches the limits of SATA II, currently only newer generations of SSDs will benefit from the increased bandwidth
SATA III on mechanical drives is purely marketing BS, and it's all backwards...
there's both dual and triple slot versions of directcu
the triple slot is a waste of time but the dual slot is pretty good
I'm pretty sure the asus 660ti has the best cooler, IIRC both cooler and...
significantly, laptops need the drastically lower power consumption and heat output
with the sheer lack of room and airflow it might as well not be there at all
the difference between 1333 and 1600 Mhz isn't even worth the time it takes to change it
why would you buy a 680 when the 670 exists
and why would you buy a triple slot cooler, enjoy warping your pci-e slots
it's to stop multiple cards pulling enough power through the expansion slots to cause damage to the mobo 24 pin power
though I have no idea why that mobo would have one, it's only really a concern...
it's also noisier
the only advantage to a closed loop is you can attach the weight to the case
if it's not a mobile system then there's no reason to use them over a better performing air cooler...
don't waste money on closed loops, get a D14
you're getting nothing more from that RAM than any other DDR3 1600 kit, get a cheaper one
the "only plus" would be better cooling, even if you maintain the same temps with lower fan speed it still means you're achieving better cooling because you can still increase fan speed and get even...
I doubt it will be gamechanging, I'm pretty sure it's the same idea that Sapphire uses for their Vapor-X GPU coolers (vapor chamber between GPU and heatpipes) and they don't perform miles ahead of...
completely and totally wrong
your link refers to Asymmetrical Crossfire between the APUs and low end radeon cards, a very specific situation that doesn't apply to OP at all
actually there is Asymmetric Crossfire
though I have no idea if it applies to laptops
500W is fine if it's not a POSU, OP can you give us a brand or model
it's one of the acer toaster PCs, it's almost impossible to upgrade and what you can change isn't worth the time or effort
don't bother asking until you're ready to buy, prices will change so much by the end of the year that any decision made now is pointless
and in the next thread post which PSU you have, if you're...
intel stock coolers have thermal paste preapplied to the bottom
I don't think this could be further from the truth
enermax make some of the best PSUs out there but you pay a premium for them
closed loops = bad / waste of time / use air or proper water / etc.
use a DVI-I to VGA adapter
16th July 2012
or buy a DVI cable for that monitor would be the best solution
if you have the correct expansion slots and a suitable PSU then yes (assuming they're both pci-e cards)
but I don't know why you would want to when one card will support at least two monitors
heh no http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/HD_7870_Flex/28.html
and the 670/680 support three displays in games as well as a 4th showing desktop
CPU brand has nothing to do with GPU...
