You shouldn't need to worry about it. Looks like there's some space to breathe.

I was my desk was that open spaced!

Good. The desk is really nice . The PC didnt fit but we just took out the middle part and that took care of it. Of course now the right side is wobbly but it still is quite nice. Not to mention all dat table space.

Nice setup blue. I will try portrait mode for my secondary monitor also. Love the fractal case!

As for a desk, I have a L shaped executive from Office Depot. Total was only around 700 for the set up.

It seems NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan is one the verge of being an entirely different lineup, the single-GPU flagship was launched back in Feburary and immediately after that rumor mill started lashing rumors about a certain cut-down version of the GeForce GTX Titan or as we now have come to know it; ‘GeForce GTX Titan LE‘. With it’s launch all but confirmed, the rumor mill has now found another so-called ‘Titan’ GPU to focus on.

Its the new r2 version that cane out in march. I love it.

Its much better for some water cooling and airflow, but sacrifices the silence that the r4 has

The Lite Edition will still be around 800. Think it is a little silly since 200 more bucks you get the real thing. If you are spending that type of cash.. 200 won't break you.

so what utility is everyone using to OC their 7970. I have been using afterburner but it caps the core clock at 1125 and mem clock at 1575. I have hit both with my powercolor with 1.2v with temps of 72. my 3dmark score is 900 points higher than with my 670. 10305.

when i tried to change to cfg file I got access denied. Ran notepad as admin and was able to open the unlocked mode, but my computer did not like that one bit. Had serious artifacts just moving the mouse around. I guess I need to use a different utility. Suggestions?

Make sure you have the latest version of Afterburner. In the later version, now you can enable unofficial overclocking within the GUI. Click Settings, and look at the bottom for AMD Compatibility Properties. There you can enable unofficial overclocking mode with or without PowerPlay Support.

Have you guys ever had to adjust your cores for your processor? I am reading about micro stuttering for AC: Revelations and a lot of people had this problem and said their cpu was defaulted to 1 core and they had to enable the others.

It is in your BIOS. I would get online to help but going to bed.
