Not really a build but swapping out the mobo and cpu. Really not looking forward to reloading Windows and all of my programs though. At least all of my games are on a separate HDD.

I just looked through the benchmarking comp and saw you had your 7970 at 1300/1650. What voltage are you running it at?

I have my 7970 at 1175/1850, but I cant get my clock any higher than 1175

His memory clock is lower than yours. So do you think dropping your memory clock and boosting your core clock would work?

Nope my first OC I tried was 1200/1600 and it failed. I cant get anything over 1175 no matter what the mem clock is

It's all chip dependent when it comes to OCs.

I know that. I want to see how much voltage he put on his card

re: PC Gaming Buddies. I'm Back With My New Build
Got the following done on my build today.

Modified the top of the case to accommodate a 360 Swiftech reservoir. Had to elongate the hole patterns in the top for the radiator and fans. I also used a multitool to cut a slot for the reservoir and drains on the case. I'm ok with that mod. I'm not happy that a standard hole pattern had to be modified in a $350 case (which I purchased for less).

Installed the motherboard, CPU and water block/pump. Installed the graphics cards.

Began installing cabling and shaping cabling for cable management. I'll probably do a Kansas City stitch on the cabling. I don't like zip ties.

Installed the SSD drives and hard drives. I've already installed the fans and power supply.

Tomorrow I hope to finish the cabling, install the tubing and fill and bleed the wc system. I also need to install the fan controller. Shaping the tubing for the wc will take a little while as will the cabling. I don't know if I will boot the system tomorrow or not.

Still on the docket is removing the front and top grills and sanding and painting them.

You have to buy the correct screw pattern radiator. Your case isn't the problem (that's how my case was at least). I could only buy a Black Ice radiator for my case since no other radiators had the correct screw hole pattern

Gotcha.

I went with a Swiftech kit for my first foray into water cooling. It came with the MC35X pump which people rave about.

We will see how far the build progresses today.
