re: nVidia GTX Titan - SM8 Titan SLi [Build Log], coming..


The GF and I just filled my loop... it looks fricking awesome!!!!!!

2 problems so far..

1. Mayhem's Pastel Pure Black looks greenish????
2. Something is wrong with my AX1200i 24pin MOBO connector. It works but doesn't want "snap" in all the way.

..Blue im pumped to see your build and want to put my 7950 1v1 against your Gigabyte. I will sell my reference 7950 to purchase another MSI Twin Frozen 7950 in CFx in the back up rig.

We will have fun benching against each other. Only difference is that I have an 8320 and you a 3570.... that should make stuff even much more fun!

Will post pics tomorrow of final build.. as of "now", I have BIG plans come haswell for a 3rd Titan with another 360 RAD and the installation of my 2nd D5 pump.

BITCOINS

Yes I purcahsed like 300USD worth of BitCoins when they were 3.50 to 4.50USD for 1 coin. I used to shop on the SilkRoad a lot but since stopped, Have about 100+ bitcoins sitting in my account. Need to withdraw that I guess? lol

Once I get my build up and running I'll start a new epeen competition!

Im going to look into mining. With the current exchange rate, my build could do about 3-4 bitcoins a month (worth $180-240). That's easy money since I don't have to pay for my electric bill.

Edit: shit, you have $6600 in bitcoins sitting around! Let me buy like 10 of them for $100

I guess it's a good thing you forgot about them then! The going rate as we speak just jumped from $66.10 to $66.18. You'll be making 15-20 times what you paid for them a while back.

If I can get to mining around $150-200/month, I'll probably use that money to build a cheap mining PC. I'vebeen reading that a popular mining build consists of a cheap AMD processor, cheap mobo with 3 or 4 wat crossfire, 3-4 radeon hd 5870 and a seasonic/corsair/etc +1000watt gold/platinum power supply. It usually comes out to $600-800 depending on the deals and such.

When I get back to my PC this afternoon, I'm going to get that 24pin fixed so I can get my PC up and going to research this shite some more. Seems like an easy way of making some money to throw back into my PC

I have a friend that ran into the same thing. I wanna say they told him it was lighting? As in 'any light makes the color off'. He wasn't pleased

You guys need to wait til like May before the next bench. I am just about done deciding my next upgrade.

And my grandfather and I decided we're doing a dual-xeon build this summer. He's been itching to do one for a while now.

AX850 right? Same as me. Here is the pinout. It's German or something but pretty self-explanatory.

I've wanted to for a while but obviously money factored into the decision. He's mentioned it a few times and finally asked me about it the other day. I agreed

Wanted to give ppl an update..

Build is 90% done.. ran a few benches, bleeds and downloading new games. I have 2 new SSDs 1xSamsung 250GB and 1xSamsung 500GB so it took me awhile getting everything set up.

None the less, I'm extremely satisfied with my build and believe it to be pretty damn impressive. I will take really good shots during the week.

Good day nerds!

If we get Blue, you and I together.. we can start a folding team or BitCoin mining team.

Lets shoot for that. I will make my next build a 4P or 8P folder. We can enter completions that yield real prize money FYI.. think about it.

I would gladly try and do a mining team.

Would you use your 7950 or titans to mine? Supposedly my 7950s are great for mining.

That is a good price, I paid 389 2months ago. For 350, you almost want to buy 2!

I now have my whole Steam library on an SSD, before I just had 2 x 256GB Vertex/Agility 4s with a WD Raptor for Steam.

My main rig storage follows: 1x256GB Vertex 4 for OS 1xSamsung Pro 250GB for Photography and 1x500GB Samsung for Games.

Another thing though.. since this build is soooo quiet I have noticed one of my Titans has really terrible COIL WHINE!!!! It is starting to become an icepick to the ear.

Blue, what would you fold on? Lets start a folding team, lol seriously. Also F@H is very pro AMD still!!! So your fanboy arse should be happy participating.
