did you use something thermally conductive?

Re: Computer Thread
 
no? why? this is for a backplate. no heat is needed to be dispersed. only thing on the back of the gpu is soldering spots. and it wont be sitting flush right on the card anyways. it will be about 3/8'' off the card

Re: Computer Thread
 
note this is purely athletics. i wasnt going for more cooling or pcb support. i do know its not the quality of other backplates. but in my defense i had to hand paint where other people had some type of vinyl cutout to get perfect lines.

Re: Computer Thread
 
factory backplates are known to drop the gpu's temps, so they must have some effect on cooling them :wink:

I've never had a card with a backplate so i don't know where contact is made with them.

maybe helping remove heat from the board thats soaking through from the front? Some gpu's do have vram on the back sides as well.

Re: Computer Thread
 
indeed some do mine doesnt. maybe a backplate could lower temps. but that would need a custom cut aluminum block as there are high spots and low spots. a flat piece of alluminum will not come in contact with everything and even then how would it not short it out?

well, as long as there are no components back there it likely wont matter.

NVIDIA G-Sync Overview and Explanation with Tom Petersen - PC Perspective - YouTube

ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



i want one. the asus g-sync monitor carries a 120$ premium over the same monitor without g-sync... 399$ is a heavy tag for a monitor. But it really sounds glorious. I HATE tearing, most games i turn settings down until i hold steady 60fps to keep motion clean. Says they'll start selling early next year, that monitor and a 2nd 660ti might be where my tax money goes.

lol poor guy. cant show the tech as cameras record fixed rate. must be hard to excite people when you cant truly show them without them being there in person. sounds very promising though i personally dont see it worth the price premium. but hey if your a enthusiast then i say awesome get it.

yea idk why he didn't just shoot it with that 2500fps camera they were talking about, lol

i just recently decided to upgrade my pc so i decided i would go ahead and give an update on it, this was my current pc:
mobo: Asrock 970 Extreme 3
ram: Mushkin Blackline 12Gb
cpu: AMD FX 63000
gpu: AMD 7870 MYST
And this is my new build. note that the cpu/gpu and mobo is watercooled using a custom loop
mobo: ASUS Maximus VI Formula
ram: Mushkin Blickline 12Gb
cpu: Intel 4770k
gpu: AMD 290x

that thing is going to be insane.

Re: Computer Thread
 
so either theres something wrong with this 7870 or the power supply is getting weak. i cant start up heavy intensive games.... the game starts tearing as if i overclocked it and its unstable then crashes. the temps are not an issue as they stay below 45

Re: Computer Thread
 
so i got something on the blackfriday sales... an item that i got for a steal due to a price mess up on bestbuys websight, i will keep it a secret until it gets here. i would just say what it was if the mistake was still on the websight but its been fixed already. i will just say its a 350$ item for the computer that i got for 99$

I just sold my 32gb of 1600 vengeance to a friend for what I paid for it a year ago. Retail prices on it have literally doubled. I paid 170 for 32gb, and now it's that for 16gb.

I picked up some 2400 gskill to replace it. Newegg was running a special for 127 shipped for 16gb. I had no need for 32gb, and bf4 apparently loves fast ram. I run triple 1080p monitors in surround, so I need any extra fps I can get. haha

My good friend gets his 32gb for his VM machine build, and I get the ram I wanted, some extra cash, and a case of beer.

Win win situation :woot:

lol dat huuuuuuuuuge case
