    Ti kanis!
    I only play World of Tanks, so I'm not a gamer by any means. I get an additional 50% improvement in fps. I have never done SLI before, so I wanted to see how it worked. When I get my next case, I'll get sleeved cables for the power supply and do it right... I build PC's for friends and family, so I need to keep up on things, but I don't need to be "cutting edge". The i7-3770k, running at 4.5Ghz makes me happy!

    You guys are why energy costs are so high! Kidding. I'm living off grid right now, solar panels and generator can't handle such a power hog. Maybe someday when I get a power line run. So expensive.

    These photos look like the ones car guys take of their beefed up engines.

    Is that a Fan mounted on a Fan mounted on a Radiator mounted on another Fan?

    Yea... My yearly electricity bill ( includes heating and water ) is around 1400.- and I totally blame my addiction to Hardware for this. But then again It's probably still cheaper than the hobbies my friends have ( smoking, drinking, etc... ) so I guess I'm kind of cool with that xD

    Yep, the fans are set up in a "push, push, pull" configuration to get the air through the radiator and this particular setup is the most effective for my particular setup. The fans are "high static pressure" and are setup to run at a speed determined by the temps, so when the PC is at rest, they are barely turning.

    Durahl - I fell the say way about our hobbies! Could be much worse...

    Worry about power?

    My wife & I dime the lights in the whole apartment block we live in!

    To Wit:

    2 Sat dishes with 3 FRESAT Boxes attached 2 Humaxs & 1 EchoStar
    2 Desktops 2 Laptops 1 surface RT
    1 TV is a Panasonic w/VIEE. A Panasonic DVD Home theatre Sound System (VIERA)connected to the TV that talks both ways to connected devices.

    All the below are through CAT 5 & WiFi Internet router.

    All three TV boxes are connected to my home router& the Panasonic TV. All for downloading software or TV progams.
    I have a WD 4TB "MY Cloud" on my net. With about 25 years of data on it.

    All computers except the SURFACE are connected to "MyCloud". The Surface can't handle It

    My internet is 10MB UP & 50 DWN. It is a fibre cable on UPC here in Ireland.

    MY " Handle" (Good Ol CB Days.)

    Known on the Forum as TULLY "The Old Fart"

    I will be 85 on Feb 14 & my wife will be 85 in Mach.

    I was born on the day that "Al" Copone committed the "Valentine Day Massacre" in Chicago"

    BORING?


    incidentally our Apt. complex is a 5 building gated complex built 17 years ago & HAD FIBRE CABLE INSTALLED when it was built.

    A big (and early) Happy Birthday to you, Tully, you old fart!

    Capone planned it that way so as to steal the headlines.

    ....... your Chicago friend.

    Just picked this rose for my wife!
    I remember the Chicago area winters all to well.
    That's why I am in Ireland.
