    [Completed] Ekasinia Build

    Another photo of the 1TB EVO's inside the 900D this time with the leak testing done but res still has bubbles. Quick photos gives a good idea how it will look and I have the Avexir Venom RAM installed. Going to be tidier than this as this was from testing, much work to do! Ignore where the EVOs are placed atm (only there to show), already installed EVO's in drive cage on the right. Bays #1 and #2 are for 840 Pro's and #3 for a WD Caviar Black 2TB, #4 and #5 for EVO's. Depending on how the rest of the build looks, I have the possibility to mount the EVO's on the other side out of sight with sticky Velcro but the Caviar Black needs to be in that cage near the beQuiet 140mm fan. Tonight I'm going to image data from 840 Pro's to HDD. Then secure erase during install with R4BE BIOS tool, handy to test how I get on with this versus my usual method which requires using spare USB thumb. Should probably buy a couple more. Quick HDR edit - you can very easily see the green UV tubing and yes the PSU does have LEDs

    continued.... Took a few more shots before fitting the block Application of MX4 (cling film method) and thermal pads cut to size for PWMs, ignored tip from sheet to use more TIM to 'improve' temps, read on OCN it doesn't matter cos it's better thermal pads where temps will help Block fitted and nearly ready to kick ass Another thermal pad to add to backplate, again you get generous amounts. To keep within instructions (and be anal) I added all the screws to block, for the backplate I removed the four highlighted screws to secure it, turn it over to secure the final two and you're done! For those that need to know if a blocked Classified will fit in their case, here's your answer... EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified blocked and backplate fitted

    abvolt's New Toy

    Just got my 2 k|ngp|n edition vga's and I gotta tell you these cards are blazing fast. I had intended to get 2 780 ti classy's but could never find one so the auto-notify thing from evga was in my email one day and I ordered them, tested them in my new rig the R4BE/4930K and ran Unigine valley benchmark in extreme HD one card at a time the score was 3820 NO OC or sli with cpu, gpu. In my older rig R4F/3930K @ 4.9 with a gtx 690 oc'ed @ power target @ 100%, gpu offset @ +165, mem offset @ +660 this card in on air my score was 3929. So you can see the k|ngp|n cards really have awesome potential Can't wait to sli these cards & oc them under water of course. The new R4BE with 2 k|ngp|n editions cards well all I can say is Oh Yeah..

    Yes it's true, I bought the EVGA GeForce GTX 780Ti Dual Classified ACX (03G-P4-2888-KR) for Ekasinia build and it was delivered today, the 21st December 2013. I could have bought the blocked version but then I couldn't test it in my current setup and that would also take away the fun of custom building everything H20 wise. The fun from watercooling comes from building it all yourself. Currently I have GTX 780 Ti Classy ACX installed alongside the 660 Ti (two Tis is cool but unfortunately not two 780 Ti's!). It's the MSI GTX 660 Ti Power Edition and will power my Dell U24140 and is dedicated for PhysX. With both installed they are silent idle with decent overclocks. Not had a chance yet to push the Classified as I need to ensure it's working okay and gradually push up. On a 850W power supply (capable of around 920W) it should cope with the demands but until the SuperFlower 1200W arrives I can't push it the to limit. Yes I have it on the second BIOS, hope mine doesn't have the reported issues when overclocking it. quickly took these, click for larger image .... Clearly the photos we have seen of the ACX cooler haven't done it justice, it feels reasonably heavy and well designed holding. Back of PCB, sorry for the blurry photo but light was fading Another shot of the front showing the matte black finish ACX cooler until I take it off for the block next month. I could add the 100-BP-2888-B9 backplate but we'll wait and see. Less blurry image EVGA make their GPUs in China but it's packaged for Europe in Germany Possibilities for connecting up to 4 displays: DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D - and the rest of the photos I took

    SimCity 2013 BETA

    Okay I've just finished playing this game. I have just went through the tutorial. My first thoughts: this is a complete waste of money. Graphics are indeed quite good, mostly because of this tilt-shift effect. However, It still looks like a game for 7 y olds. It's super simple and looks like a cartoon-game. I have a good comparison to Cities XL. Despite the fact, that it lacks good developers support and it barely has any bugs fixed since 2011 edition, it still looks much better than this game. Not to mention it has more other options. Simple example, in Cities XL you can change the tax rate for every wealth class, manufacturing, shops. In SimCity you have only one tax. So much for talking, just see these screenshots below. I also hate how the Sims look. I've expected something better, especially for this ridiculous price. My performance at 'Medium' 1920x1080 on my laptop is 15-22 fps (unplayable). The sizes of the cities are so small that it's incomparable to Cities XL. I forgot to change the language to English, sorry Probably GTX Titan release People demand the new Radeon Series. That's creepy The size of the cities This is an actual bank robbery, later police arrives and shots the poor chaps, but interestingly no bodies could be found. This is how VC obtains the new leaks Other pictures http://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-98686200-1361034155.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-79854000-1361034164.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-04122400-1361034173.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-28088700-1361034182.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-58832400-1361034199.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-41520900-1361034207.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-94197100-1361034214.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-47251000-1361034227.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-62204100-1361034257.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-07560700-1361034264.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-48898700-1361034285.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-72358600-1361034293.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-22592700-1361034320.jpghttp://forums.videocardz.com/uploads/monthly_02_2013/post-1-0-37034000-1361034309.jpg

    "DanK", first I'm assuming you are a spammer so I took care of that advertising in signature - big NO on any forum and you're welcome! Your post also makes no sense and requesting update on the LATEST driver is crazy talk. I'm only leaving this post if there is very small chance you aren't a bot otherwise move on.... make another nonsensical post and you're banned.

    Protect Your Steam Account from Hijacks

    Protect Your Steam Account from Hijacks I'd advise anyone to visit their Steam profile and change the privacy setting to ensure that comments are for friends only. You all know my nickname and pointless hiding it, take reasonable precautions and you'll be fine. Hover over your name in Steam as follows and select Profile At the top of the page on the right under your Steam level and badge, press Edit Profile You'll come to your Edit Profile page (aka My Profile), no options will change on this page as we need to change Privacy Settings. Go ahead and click on My Privacy Settings Now we are in My Privacy Settings you can change the options as advised unless you have changed these. Switch Comment Permissions as follows to Friends Only. Profile Status - Leave your profile open as Public, there is no risks and can stop certain apps or streaming services from working. Comment Permissions - Set to Friends only and means only your friends, who you trust, can leave comments. Unless you know that person, don't click ANY links. In Steam there is not the usual protection you get from browsers, its like running around naked on there! Inventory - My profile used to be fairly open, however since we also get trade scams I only allow friends to view my Inventory (maybe Steam should default to this option). Same can be said for Comments and the point of this post. Both together means no-one can scam you unless you click on links in forums, websites then that's down to bad luck and lack of security installed. Chrome has built-in Malware protection, used alongside Malwarebyte's and your paid for security suite you should be protected. Showcase Panel - potential issue EDIT: Another point I should add. Remove Games Collector Showcase panel and replace it with something else, say Favourite Game Showcase or Rarest Achievement Showcase panels. Right there you are showing how valuable your account is (number of games, DLCs) to whom ever it maybe good/bad that happens to stumble upon your account. Yes you could go into lockdown mode aka Private if you were that worried but Steam works best when your account is Public. Don't deliberately have this panel enabled, let other members check your account is legit too. For example, making friends, gaming, trading, or if you are managing a public Steam Group or creating your own mods. Whatever you decide is down to you, let common sense prevail Over the past few months I had a lot of random 0-level accounts (likely bot accounts) leaving hijack link attempts disguised as image links and all leaving identical messages where only the image link changed. Links to images are made to look legit but are far from it. Steam should be doing far more to protect us and they are not, at least let me report these as my only option is to delete the many suspicious comments. If you get spam texts you can report these to your provider and they ban the numbers to stop further harm, we are neither being protection at the first instance on our profile page, being able to report it, or Steam having sufficient protections in place. Edit: Not related to hijacks but worth pointing you in the direction of this detailed Steam Guide by Jimo entitled Avoiding Common Scams.

  21. All is not lost, the team has renewed their efforts and released a new version for existing licence holders of AnyDVD. Redfox team member Tom has announced the new site and goes towards prolonging the use of the software as it relies on a database of keys to decrypt discs going forwards. Source

    **Official Screen Shot Thread** (56K Beware)

    Only have these screenshots so far of GTA: San Andreas after a number of hours tweaking and troubleshooting. So much tweaking and being happy with it that I zipped my GTA:SA Steam folder for another install years down the line otherwise it becomes tedious repeating these steps. To make it playable, was modded for modern systems to give mouse support, includes numerous fixes, among some other mods I tried out to bring in HD textures and better signage plus slightly improved lighting. Slapped on 4x SGSSAA and bang no more jaggies, in game MSAA doesn't work. The custom ENB mods didn't work with my version and didn't offer a substantial difference from examples I have seen. Originally it offered near similar image quality to the PS2 version back when then San Andreas was released in 2004, but later patches reduced the quality below PS2 and lacked HD options. On my version the intersections are fixed, registration plates are unique and readable, lights work on streets as do the headlights, the halo over items such as weapons works as it should. More importantly the quality is slightly above PS2 and the custom radio station supports .wav and .flac files with a 2-pass filter. The stock mp3 radio stations sound really good with crisp and clear music that you could easy mistake for uncompressed formats. GTA:SA was first setup to run natively at 1440p but I noticed it stretched the vertical axis making the map oval. Downgraded borked Steam version to V3 and although it manages only 1200p it retains correct aspect ratio. Have stopped trying out mods and hope to add more screenshots when time allows. (below) gameplay, never done this before but managed to pick up the box with forklight like this

    [Completed] Ekasinia Build

    Ain't posted anything for a while and intend to add more photos and info later. Will change how I usually do a log and show the result below.   Firstly I purchased: EKWB R4BE black Monoblock 32GB Kingston black DDR3 2400MHz RAM 1/2 ID 3/4 OD green UV tubing Mayhems green UV Coolant premixed (loop with 2x480mm rads used 1.6 litres) Monsoon green 45, 90-degree fittings 4x green 140cm case fans All the previous Bitspower fittings will probably be reused for 2600K+3570K CPU rebuild (would have done GPU but really not worth it unless I can get it for tops of £60). Reused the excellent 20g huge tube of MX4 TIM for block and this time applied it pea-sized than spreading it. You move the block about side to side a little to work it - trust me it's better pea-sized in the middle than anything else.   So yeah a lot of green but main aim was to improve the aesthetics, neater loop, and lower temps in the Summer and currently have these quiet fans on 40% at 23C ambient. Biggest issue with redoing loop is the time needed to drain it and concern about coolant that will remain within the blocks/rads. Always play safe and have different sized storage containers cos even the small ones have saved me some grief, plus about 6 plugs for sealing holes. Some tubes may not come off at all due to how much I over tighten the fittings originally - any fitting can have this problem and tube will pull off even with fitting tightened - you'll have to grab your hose cutter and give it a quick snip.   All the old 5/8 tubing is being replaced and will go in the bin. 3/4 tubing may seem OTT but its a breeze to work, rigid and fits on better than 5/8 tubing. The new fittings in how well they are designed and finished are something else and a new standard for others to follow. I've tried EK and they flaked plus finish had too many blemishes that EK state aren't covered under warranty, Bitspowered have great finish but washer should be thicker, it's very expensive, and not that easy to get a tight secure fitting without resorting to spanner that will damage the outer thread.   Besides that the only aspect of this build I would want to improve is the power cables to improve layout, otherwise its very clean and tidy considering the amount of cables required. The LED on the 780 Ti isn't that bright and you don't notice it unless you look at it, must have been the angle I took the image at and the smaller aperture (about 32 at 200 ISO) of 70D to capture the detail and fan rotation. Only finished a quick 24 hour leaktest 06:30 today and remaining bubbles will disappear over the next 5 days.   Image is 4.7MB, 20MP

    Quick update.   This is a list of what I took delivery of on Wednesday:   EK Supremacy Elite CSQ CPU Waterblock Intel 2011 Full Nickel Be Quiet Shadow Wings SW1 140 x 140 x 25mm PWM BL027 Case Fan XSPC EC6 Non Conductive Coolant 1 Litre 6 Pack Clear 2X Alphacool VPP655/Laing D5 Vario 12V Pump Unit EK Dual CSQ Loop TOP 24 Pin ATX Power Supply Bridging Plug 3X 4 Pin Molex Sleeved Extension Cable Plastic Funnel Heavy Duty Hose Cutters Arctic Cooling MX-4 Thermal Compund 20g   Delivery took for today:   Corsair 900D EK-FC780 GTX Classified Acetal+Nickel EK-RES X3 400 Reservoir DEMCiflex Dust Filter Kit XSPC 480mm Radiator Gasket XSPC HighFlex Hose 2m GreenUV Green   Will leave my initial thought about the parts until I post photos. Rads and R4BE blocks aren't due to arrive for another 8 days because of holidays, etc. Ordered a couple 5 litre containers of distilled water for flushing direct from Mayhems here in the good old UK. The original idea was to use some of the coolant but that's silly because it won't do a good job and it's more expensive, my excess will last up for two years leaving enough for maintenance flush every 6 months.   My fans and fan splitters have been backordered from OCUK, they are chasing it up with the suppliers. After I get the rads and fans I can start flushing then spend more on fittings and I know no one store will have enough. Damn I needed the rads first to get something done or at least the blocks for the board. Getting my hands on all the necessary parts has been very hard, getting them in good time is impossible. I've been chasing up every late item so what more can you do but wait.   Will post more photos of everything I get over the coming days to weeks, stay tuned!

    Nidec and Scythe

    Just to inform people who used there products , i know that smith planned on buying the Gentle typhoon , you have to hurry up lol Sad news regarding the Scythe Gentle Typhoon line, but we have hopes that the new Scythe Grand Flex line should be an adequate replacement: FrozenCPU, Regretfully, both Nidec and Scythe have decided not to continue their business relationship. We will not be able to fulfill your Gentle Typhoon order. We will be promoting the new Grand Flex fans. These are supposedly better than the Gentle Typhoons. We need to get the message out to the public. I should have some samples by early next month. By the way, Scythe reserves the right to the name Gentle Typhoon. That means Nidec can’t sell the product to anybody with our label, our package, our brand and etc. attached to it. Thank you. Best Regards, Hank Peng SCYTHE, Inc. EDIT : Frozencpu.com has 134 in stock at the moment

    Far Cry 3 Performance Test [Update 1.04]

    Next tests were done with MSAA 4x enabled Testing at maximum quality settings 1680x1050 MSAA 4X Testing at the maximum quality settings of 1920x1080 MSAA 4X Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600 MSAA 4X VRAM consume Nvidia vs AMD flagship cards VRAM consume Nvidia vs AMD flagship cards MSAA 4x CPU Performance Comparison at 1080p System Memory Usage 1080p Green»651MB is Low Settings and Red»676MB for Highest Settings Conclusion: Windows XP users will be happy to know that Far Cry 3 engine Dunia Engine still support DirectX 9. The benchmark graphs represent only game performance with Windows 7/DirectX 11, I´m curious to see if there is a noticible performance increase migrating from DX11 to DX9. I´m glad to see that latest Nvidia drivers 310.64(28/11) were installed before run the tests. To be honest I searched for System requirements in some "famous" websites, but I found that must be some mistake, as for Hi-Performance they recommend GPU´s like GTX 260 or HD 5770, what I found ridiculous after seeing the GAMEGPU review. I had to search further and found some more logical systems recommendations. So, like always I will make my graphics card recommendation for an average player that intend to play at 1080p with reasonable quality/frames, Nvidia GTX 570 or AMD Radeon HD 6950. The king of the hill this time is Nvidia Kepler dual-gpu GTX 690, that is capable to produce a MIN-44 and AVG-48 fps at 1600p MSAA4x, which is not espectacular, but enough for a hardcore gamer. By the way I´d like to see HD 7990 in those charts, but seems it will not happen, maybe because it´s a non reference card, and a bit "rare". Talking about AMD multi-gpu scalability, HD 6990 performs really weak, when compared with it´s rival GTX 590. I must say that I´m a bit surprised by AMD Radeon cards performance revealed in those charts, being Far Cry 3 a AMD Evolved title, I expected to come more AMD friendly to defeat Nvidia competitors, which not happens. Seeing old HD 5870 on pair with HD 6970 is surprising, because AMD 5000 series was known for poor DX11 exhibition, besides only 1GB Vram installed. Far Cry 3 in my opinion is really unoptimized, more that my previously "reviewed" Assassins Creed 3. For example, at 1600P without MSAA, a card like HD 7950 isn´t enough to keep an acceptable gaming session, staying behind 30fps on average. In the future, with patches/updates provided by the game coders, along with more optimized drivers, I hope to see a generous frame boost, especially the minimum ones, creating a more smooth gaming experience. This game reminds me Crysis 1, the island, open world, animals etc. Thank God, today top graphics cards can deliver a little bit better experience in Far Cry 3 than Nvidia 8800 series did at 2007, with 1st Crysis. Talking about Vram consumption, I can say that 1GB is the minimum required for this game for resolutions above 1680x1050 at High Settings. If we enabled Anti-aliasing option, 1.5GB or more is optimal to prevent bottleneck. Overall Vram usage is almost equal between GTX 680 and HD 7970, but at 2560x1600, with/out MSAA, AMD card needs more" juice", about 100MB more when compared to Nvidia GTX 680 card which is not a problem due to the fact that HD 7900 series features 3GB of memory. This time Intel have more competition with AMD processors. Any Quad core CPU, from either AMD or Intel clocked above 3.0 GHz is good enough to keep up with any recent graphics card in Far Cry 3. As always system RAM amount isn´t a decisive factor when decide to upgrade for a determinate game, most modern computers with 4GB or more are "safe". The game won´t use more than 700MB itself, even on highest settings. To sum up, I really like games like this one, with open world environment, bad guys, guns and scenario destruction. »Click for source link« Game-debate & Wiki» Intro Shacknews.com» System requirements NotebookReview.com [Arai]» In game Options picture The Conclusion was made entirely by me (Skr13), I only use charts and other relevant info from the sources.

    Unless he cares about power consumption, noise and heat, not to mention it is pretty much a known fact NV Drivers win hands down. Look how long it took AMD to add Game Profiles, that alone tells you how far behind their driver team is. Also you are talking about the 7970 GE, the 7970 loses to the 680 in the majority of games at 1080p (what he has shown us he is going to be playing at). NewEgg has about I think 6 or 7 models of the 7970 GE while they have over 30 models of the 680.
