    Why not getting a 690? It's only like $1000.
    Because I'm ok with waiting for something better? If 680's are midrange, I want to see GK110's.

    I really hope they have better performance with GPGPU stuff like rendering with CUDA etc.
    Thats the only reason why I stick with my two 460s.

    Just wait for some good stable drivers and watch the performance soar.

    late to the party, but Cooler Master isn't a major computer manufacturer just so you know.

    Yes it is, just so you know.
    They do a lot of OEM work for Nvidia, AMD and EVGA besides their own products.

    I bet no ones going to say, "OMG LOL ULL NEED A NUKE REACTOR TO POWER IT"

    Simply because it's AMD, and their reputation.

    How easy is it to put in a case? Planning to do this soon. Any rule of thumb? I heard you shouldn't tighten the screws of the motherboard tightly until everything is fitted in, just so there's some slack.

    No, they'll probably say that it would need an aircraft hangar for the case and that it needs to be installed with 2 cranes.

    I think they do seeing as they sell heatsinks that are exactly the same as the Intel coolers.

    Edited:

    Not 100% sure on that though.

    Thats an XFX, it shouldn't have done that. You need to call XFX and tell them what the fuck happened and have them check it out and replace your fan.

    I can try but think it was a problem with the fan controller not the PSU. I think the wire just shorted or something because the PSU hasn't done anything else to my led strips on the same rail.

    Yup, but it's a old motherboard, DDR2.
    But as long i can play the latest games like Battlefield 3 it doesn't matter.

    Even so, it still shouldn't have done that. These things are tested for a reason!

    So, I have this old-ass case. It has only room for three 80mm fans. It got quite warm at times when running games like BF3 and such, so I decided to do some casemodding.



    Yus, this will work

    This heatsink weighs about 4 pounds, made of pure copper btw. (heaviest heatsink in existance and there are only 1000 ever made)


    I got two 27" displays, they look small in comparison to my case.

    Copper... Doesn't Aluminum have better thermal conductivity?

    I need to get another 240mm fan for my cooler, my processor still gets up to 60c on occasion.

    Alright then.

    Also, can I ask what the acceptable temperature limits on a motherboard are? Mine gets to 40-45c on occasion, and I'm sure that isn't normal.

    That is actually pretty low, you should start to worry about 80-90 degrees. Most motherboards are meant to handle high temperatures, mine can handle temps so high my CPU would fry before the motherboard sustained any damage.

    I love Coolermaster, they made the internal heatsinks for my motherboard. They manage to make things that look good and work well, instead of just doing one.

    My zalman cooler is quite bigger than the v8... Surprisingly it fitted fine. It's quite heavy too at 950g.
