  1. Project ARMADA http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/73352-project-armada-watercooled-define-r4-titanium-ek-waterblocks/
  2. Sponsor, Sponsor, Sponsor, NVIDIA BIAS, Sponsor, Something Minor AMD, Sponsor. I'm done, garbage channel/forum. Go back to grass roots where you at least attempt to hide your utter bias to a company that has clearly paid you off.
  3. 11 Minutes, 1 Hour, 1 Month. I don't care. The effort was not made for what should have been an amazing video and and amazing machine. Cash grab.
  4. Yes salty. Of course LTT has improved the quality of their content, staple of their modern day success, it does not change the fact that it's obnoxiously obvious that the better part of their content now is a mere cash-grab, the sheer number of commercials per video/stream is a prime example. (And i don't blame them, it works) Hell any trained monkey can throw together an identical machine in 11:00minutes. That machine deserve no recognition aside from the money put into it. A prime example of planning, the whole room water cooling prodject, months went into the planning & building. Something that should be been undertaken with this. end rant.
  5. You don't think they already had the components to make it? Any true enthusiasts would relish the opportunity to make such a build, they wouldn't half-hazardously slap it together in 11:00 minutes i assure you.
  6. Linus + Luke. You built a $10,000 Machine in 11:00minutes. Pathetic. A typical Linus slap-together machine to drive Youtube Views & Likes through the roof. No thought was even present during this video, the lack of style, color choices, cooling all went out the window. Combined you are supposed to represent a passion for technology, and yet we are inundated with countless garbage machines to spike your Youtube revenue. It's becoming more apparent by each video, each WAN Stream and each obnoxious $10,000 machine that you have lost touch with your original viewer base and now solely driven by cash. Go back to your roots Linus & Luke, take the time to build something with passion & purpose. Done.
  7. INTO THE SHADOWS Akula Project Introduction Welcome to another buildlog. I intend to ensure this build is a sleek as possible, Black is the theme, without an ounce of color intended. I'll be re-using older parts from my existing builds to keep the cost down and choosing parts from an older generation for ease of use and aesthetic reasons. I intend to paint a large number of components, including the motherboard heatsinks, nothing that hasn't already been done, although a nice touch on a build focused around the single color. Stay tuned as i work with flexible tubing, something that is almost a lost art in the wake of hard tubing, black coolant and sleek lines.

  8. Well these 980 scores are quite underwhelming, even with their stupid high clocks.
  9. Thanks for keeping this updated since i've been away Good to see I'm still king on Single
  10. As you have noticed, this has not been updated in months. I'm no longer active on these forums. If someone wants to populate a new spreadsheet and take ownership of this thread, be my guest.
  11. Only speaking for myself here, but builds of the week was what separated the other forums from this one. The chance for thousands of people to see your build was a great reason to post my own build logs here.
  12. Haven't seen a build of the week in the WAN show for over a month, safe to say this segment is dead, despite the "revamp" that was proposed. That segment was the driving factor for myself to post builds, along with others. Perhaps Linus or Slick could fill us in?
  13. I've been lazy in regards to updating the list, mainly due to work/social life. I'll get it done today, i'll be looking for someone to help update the list throughout the week. If you're keen shoot me a pm and when i get back on i'll go through them
  14. All scores updated. Sorry guys i've been busty the past 2 weeks with work and holidays so i was not able to update scores. In future scores will be updated ever few days.
  15. I just used any regular alcohol, eventually they all do the same thing.
  16. I'll update these scores tonight when i get home, normally every 1-2 days.
  17. Sadly the oldest PC i had access to was this hunk of junk, might have been capable of XP but regardless, it's still a relic and my relic Compaq Presario 5423US Desktop Processor 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium 4 RAM 512 MB Hard Drive 80 GB Card Description nVIDIA GeForce2 MX Graphics Card Ram Size 64 MB
  18. I'm now accepting multiple entries for the same user, with the following conditions. You may submit multiple entries providing you are either Benching the same card with Dual, Tri or Quad SLI Setup's Benching a different card than your first submission. Which means you'll be able to have multiple entries in the Top 30 with Multiple Cards or SLI Setups. EG - I Own a GTX Titan & GTX 680 so both are eligible for the Single GPU Top 30 as they are different cards.
  19. I've benched at 5.4-5.5Ghz during the winter, this chip loves to clock high.
  20. Overclocking Been pushing my Titan to it's absolute limits the past few weeks, getting close to it's limits. This is my main reasoning for the push towards my 4770k - Currently it's being used within my HTPC build although I'm highly tempted to make the switch. I've flashed the GTX Titan with "Skynet v2 1006 vBIOS" and pushed this card using MSI AB & Zar voltage modifications. 3dMark Results & Clocks 1406Mhz Core Clock 1902Mhz Memory Clock 300% Power Target 1.350v + 0.25v LLC 2600k @ 5.2GHZ (5,187Mhz) 1.525v + 0.80v LLC Ungine Valley Results & Clocks 1446Mhz Core Clock 1917Mhz Memory Clock 300% Power Target 1.375v + 0.25v LLC 2600k @ 5.2GHZ (5,187Mhz) 1.525v + 0.80v LLC Ranked 7th Single GPU on OCN & #1 On LTT - I believe with the 4770k switch i can push even higher up the ladder.
  21. So I've been doing some thinking the past few days regarding the future of this build, mainly the 2600k in mind. I feel it's time to swap for my trusty 4770k, let me 2600k return to it's packaging for future use Going to need to do a full Motherboard/CPU swap - Will will be a huge pain in the ass, really it's the only thing stopping me.
