If only I could convince the wife to go for something like that. -_-'

I'll be insulating the garage these next days off to help capture the heat generated by Nvidia this winter. It will be interesting to see what happens in the garage when it gets really cold outside.

I wish the SR-2 took I7 cpu, that looks like a fun thing to play with. I have too much invested in my I7 rigs plus I do like the steady output of gpus.

Thanks, I did pick up some Enzo sinks, some AS5 and a Therlmalright HR-09S Type 2 for the PWMs. I'll see if those fit.

Gimme 2 weeks. Need to see what kind of oc the E5520s can do (unless I have new chips...), make sure the oc is stable for Bigadv then see the output.

I did capture a P2685 that I'll play with, and see what kind of ppd the rig can generate over a few frames.

I did, for the reason explained above. It will allow me to benchmark the BIOS changes while oc'ing.
That WU is complete and sent, and the benchmarking done will be while the rig is offline.

Good Choice, those enzo's have done wonders on the budget boards that come with nakkid VRM's and MOFSETS.

let me know how it goes,
