To be honest 1200 watt is barely enough for 2 GPU's. You never want to utilize more than 80% of the power supply. To be safe 2 GPU's should run 1600 watt power supply and 3 GPU's I would run atleast 2000 watt's and you would see a difference in performance with the same hardware. You really don't want the power supply to run warm otherwise it's being pushed too much. One of the main things I hear are people talking about stuttering and crashing and that's because of the lack in power. RimacBugatti
Are you mental, my 2 680's run 195-225w each and I need twice the PSU I have now? Wow, maybe if I get a 2000w PSU i'll get an extra 20fps in BF3 :) .... ..... hahahahaha

If you're a troll, good job, but you're not fooling anyone. If not, well...

Blurred a few things, also I'm a student, so my setup isn't ideal :P

Also photos were taken with tablet in poor lighting conditions. Forgive me.

That's a nice looking room, I like your wooden furniture, too. Those speakers being on different levels would make me freak out, though.

There's only about 10cm in it, sadly not much i can do about that.

i guess the wires do look a lot better tucked... 

i need to dust... and don't mind the flap of noise padding on the drive bay, it's only temporary. can see the wires in there from my desk while the side door is off and it was driving me crazy. had that left over piece just sitting at my desk so i stuck it on until i can propperly cover it.

Brace your selves lads I'm about to tell him that... You can run two GTX Titan's on a 750w PSU! (High efficiency around 90+).

Thank you gentleman for the response. It really brightens my day. Thank you for the compliment sir. :) I will try to post some pictures as soon as possible. I never really focused as much on looks as I did performance. Would I rather have a car that looks like a Bugatti or a car that performs like one. Hmmm... let me think. It's like all the individuals that pretend to have money seemingly don't. Seems to be a trend these days. I commend you guys on these builds they all look really good! :) I had a question in reference to another build that I had been thinking about and was wanting some advice. What is your opinion on the CFI case and the AZZA case?
#315 Posted by RimacBugatti (1632 posts) -

It is a lot easier to convince yourself that it would require less energy when you knowingly can't afford the more advanced item. It's called trickery my friend. It keeps us from becoming emotional over a situation that we can't seemingly control.

Excuses excuses. jk.

Looks good. I have to ask, what's the story behind the pink elephant or whatever it is?

Girlfriend thought it would be funny to buy it for me.

I was just going to ask lol. Yeah.. I like your setup because it has personality. Not because of the pink elephant but everything else, haha.

My motherboard died, so I took that opportunity to do some upgrading.

Went with an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard + i7 3930k + Corsair H100i CPU cooler.  Here is a pic of the inside now, though all you can really see which is new is the H100i:

EDIT - After I posted that pic I noticed the piece of plastic on my mobo and removed it haha.

#337 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (17329 posts) -


I believe the option is called overscan or something similar, you'll have to dig around in the TVs menu until you find it.

Set your resolution to the native resolution of the TV (which is hopefully 1920x1080), before changing the TV settings.


I had to do this for my previous HDTV, but I don't remember doing it for my current one.
C_Rule

If your TV Menu has overscan adjustment or auto-adjustment, I'd use that. If not, Both Catalyst (Overscan option) and Nvidia Control Panel (Scaling) have it.

Pic is not working for me. Rampage IV Extreme is a pretty ballin' motherboard, though. What happened to your other motherboard, is it still inside warranty?

 Just got my Corsair 350D Micro ATX case, heres what it looks like before side panel goes back on. I decided to remove my mechanical HDD to maintain the clean look and keep airflow up, will probably throw it into an external USB 3.0 enclosure.

i want a 350D... but can't justify having to replace my motherboard and micro atx doesn't leave much room between cards for sli. i just hope they release something in the same design that accommodates atx but isn't as big as the 650D

Yeah, the 650D is a little big in my opinion. If they would release something just a little more compact. Preferably a case with a lot of room behind the motherboard to route cables...
