  1. Ah I missed there was a Windows section! Thanks! Isnt TRIM important for SSDs? I think I heard that there are programs you can install to add TRIM support to an XP system?
  2. Hello Everyone! I have a couple old Win98 and XP game disks and a bunch of old-ish hardware. Right now I'm looking at either using a Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, or maybe an i5-2400. As for GPU Ive got an 8600 GTS, 9500 GT, and a GTX 460. As far as I know I don't need a slow processor for any of the games. I have a 120GB SSD I want to install Windows XP 32bit on but Ive heard there are issues or things you have to set up in order to run XP on an SSD. I know that you have to disable disk defragmentation, but Ive heard you need something to add TRIM support? Any advice would be appre
  3. Could we get a pic of what comes in the LTT edition? Kinda hard to see the Fan hub stickers and case badge in the video. Also that there's no LTT edition NH-L9i
  4. My build page is so out of date. Ive since gotten an EVGA GTX 770 "Founders Edition" and then an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW and upgraded my case to a Define R6, custom water cooling, and then finally a platform upgrade to a 9700K and Maximus XI Code with 4x8GB DDR$ 3200 Trident Z RGB I'm not great at taking pictures of stuff. here's a crappy pic of it's current state. Here's my facebook album with more pictures of the various states my computer(s) has been in over the years https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150269169727812&type=3
  5. This is an awesome build! Im getting a Dan case soon I managed to get a 4670K and Asrock Z87E-ITX for $100 and had 2x8GB DDR3 1600 and a GTX 780 laying around. Already bought a SF450 Platinum, 1TB msata 850 EVO, and NH-L9i.
  6. I recently got a 2nd GTX 770 for my old i5-2500K PC and I tested that both GPUs work individually but when I put them together in the same system and enable SLI the Nvidia driver crashes and restarts every time I try to launch anything GPU-demanding like a game or benchmark. It works fine on the desktop using DisplayPort at 1440p 120Hz though.Oddly enough SLI works when I use an HDMI cable, but using HDMI I only get 1440p 60hz whereas with DisplayPort I should be able to get 120Hz (it seems like I cant get 144/165Hz using the 770)It even crashes when I have the monitor connected over DisplayPo
  7. For clarity im talking about antennas like these some motherboards have msata/m.2 wifi cards with u.FL/IPX/IPEX connectors then just use u.FL/IPX/IPEX to SMA pigtails for those screw in external antennas
  8. Was wondering if anyone has ever tried to put a laptop wifi antenna in their desktop PC behind the front panel or something.
  9. Hello again everyone. I recently got some parts to build my first watercooling loop! Unfortunately, my Lian Li Lancool K63 is not really designed to mount much other than 140mm fans... So I picked up a new Fractal Design Define R6. My plan is to keep my Black/Red build but now It'll be in a white case! Why the switch to a white case? I'm going for a "Type R" styled theme. Once I get the system built and running I plan on picking up a Red Honda badge and a Type R badge for fun and putting those in there somewhere. After seeing some pictures of systems in white cases I've decided
  10. Try asking in this thread?
  11. Glad to hear you found a ride! See you at the event!
  12. I have seen that the 8 series can manage 5ghz on air pretty easily and from what Ive seen, custom WC loops already do a much better job keeping CPUs closer to ambient. (I think due to the thermal mass of the water?) Anyway, I guess my next question would be does deliding (with either LM or kyronaught) make much difference if you are using a custom WC loop? Or does it only really matter on cooling solutions with less heat sinking abilities? I can imagine that better TIM means better thermal conductivity regardless, but I can see how the TIM's rate of thermal conductivity would be less importa
  13. Sorry to say my GF and I are going up on the 12th to spend a little extra time in Vancouver. Hope you find someone to carpool with!
  14. Im going to be doing a custom water cooling loop and might end up replacing my CPU/Chipset/RAM platform by getting an 8600k before LTX (that I hope to run at 5GHz) and if so was thinking of bringing it for delidding. I dont recall if LTT has ever done a video literally comparing a stock CPU to a delided one with Kyronaught or Conductonaught. If i recall the 6700k deliding video yielded little improvement but in the the $1000 CPU video the results were near 20 degrees improvement on the 7700k from deliding and using Kryonaught. And the Ultimate compact Titan XP video wasnt really testing the pe
