  1. Can anyone tell me why this is happening...? And more importantly, how to correct it? Thanks.
  2. Thats cool at 4k, but what about a 1440p/144hz monitor? Would gsync benefit there? I'm on a 1080p/120hz-4k/30hz tv now. The only time I've experienced tearing is in 4k because I was getting over 30fps, and the only time there was stuttering was in Skyrin and Star Trek Online. I get none of that in newer titles like BF4, DA:I and TW3.
  3. How much of a fps hit is there with gsin Hellz yeah Free sync is cheaper! I already have Nvidia cards, though... How much of a hit to fps can I expect with gsync?
  4. Which offers the best gaming experience... 1440p/144hz or 4k/60hz? -and- Is gsync worth the extra money and fps hit?
  5. This is my second thread about this, so I will keep it as short and to the point as possible. My ideal display is 32 inches, 16:9 aspect ratio, 1440p/144hz. But, as Player177 over on IGN said, what I want simply doesn't exist. So, I'm over it. I want a proper display that will push my rig to its limits(1440p/4k). My specs are in my signature. This is my current display... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8RW38E5771&cm_re=seiki-_-89-522-025-_-Product Pros: True 1080p/120hz input over hdmi(tested). The size Size: the 39 inch screen is awesome for gaming and movies. Immersion city! Especially for open world games. I got it for less than $300. Cons: To get the TV to accept 1080p/120hz input, I had to install the drivers from the 55inch version, which locked out 3/5 of the screen adjustments(color, tint, sharpness). The size: 39 inch screen is too big for everything but gaming and movies. I actually put the display on a book shelf behind my desk, because on the desk was too close. 4k is only at 30hz and the colors look funky for games, but not videos, weird. Also, there's this weird hazing effect over the screen. Its less noticeable when watching video, even less with games, but still annoying... My hope is that seeing what I like, and don't like, about my current display will help you to help me find a new one. I know i will have to compromise with either the size, refresh rate, or aspect ratio, so I'm open to suggestions. I would like to stay under $700. Browsing the web, this is what I've come up with so far... 43 inch 1080p/120hz and 4k/60hz with hdmi 2.0... Too big. http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-M43-C1-43-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B00T63YUTE -or- 27 inch 1440p/144hz monitor... Too small. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014451 -or- 32 inch 1440p/60hz monitor... Too slow. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4JK1PC4033 Of course, any thought, opinions and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  6. That'd be giving up a lot of perormance...
  7. First of all, I have to say, these Classifides are beasts!!! 1506mhz core and + 500 vram without flinching! I only stopped there because the temps were getting a little out of my comfort zone. Well, on one card, anyway. Which brings me to ongoing problem.... Even with my ghetto rigged fan, my temps on my top card are still pretty crazy. I was playing DA:I with a mild overclock and my bottom card hovered at 59-60c, while my top card was at 81-82c. Even with no overclockes, the top card stayed around 76c. So, of course, I took to obsessively scouring the internet again and came up with 3 possible solutions. 1(Most evpensive): I could try my hand at a custom water cooling loop for the GPUs only. I love my Kraken, so I'd keep it on the CPU. This solution would be around $500.00, but could potentially yield the best results. Also, It'd be my first custom loop, don't know if I should start with such expensive hardware. 2(In between): I could buy a new motherboard with the usable PCIX16 slots farther apart so my top GPU isn't so smothered. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188160 On this board, the top two PCIX slots are x16, the middle two are x8 and the bottom one is x4. The 4790k only has 16 PCI lanes anyway, so I wouldn't lose anything using the the top slot, then on of the x8 slots. On a down side, this is an E-ATX board, and although it'd technically fit in my case, cable management will be a little snug. My current mobo goes all the way to the grommets already. See the above pics... 3(Cheapest): I could buy a new case for my rig with a big fan on the side panel that blows fresh air directly on the GPUs, like my old CM HAF. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119225 Though the HAF is the best for air flow, my old HAF seemed like more of a cage than a case. All of those openings let a lot of sound out of the case and dust into the case. Also, the 10 fan switch in the back of my current case is kind of dope. Which solution do you guys think is best?
  8. I have a 4790k in an EVGA mobo. I just set the voltage to "Adaptive" and crank the multiplier to 48 accross all cores and it works pretty well. It has survived multiple Occt runs and Fire Strike benchmarking. For everyday, however, I keep it set to 4.6ghz...
  9. I'm looking to sell the CPU, mobo, and ram from my old rig. They are legacy parts, to put it nicely. I'm talking socket lga 775 and ddr 2, but they still work perfectly fine. Do you guys think it'd be better to try to sell them together or separately? This and any other advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Thanks for the help and advice, everyone. My GPUs sold like hotcakes!
  11. Fortunately my case came with a ton of zip ties!
  12. Anyone out there successfully sell there used graphics cards and have tips for someone looking to sell their cards?
  13. Its hard to tell from the pic, but a fan there is a super tight fit. Like the cables will be hitting fan blades. AND, I have 2x 980 Classified on the way, which are an inch longer than the 960s. So far, I've totally removed the 1 and 2 slotted drive bays and have just the 3 slotted bay(the one with the fan mount) sitting at the bottom. The space between the storage bay on the bottom and the optical bay at the top is just big enough for a 140mm fan. Its like I need it to float about 2 inches farther back than where you illustrated. Any suggestions on mounting something like that?
  14. I put a 140mm fan where the middle drive bay was at. Would getting the backplates maybe help?
  15. I have a Kraken x61 and a 4790k... 4.8ghz, no problem. I haven't tried higher yet.
