Crappy phone pics of new addition.

Need to clean up the wires and stuff but that is a TBD.

With 580.



With 690 and new SilenX fans, apologies for the dark shot :(



The 690 is by far the best constructed card I have ever used. There is no flex whatsoever :eek:

mullet Sep 25, 2012 08:10 PM

Looks good dude. :up:

Are those the Akasa 140mm fans? How do you like them? Do they undervolt well or are you using the pwm?

I assume you are talking to me.

The fans are SilenX fans, 120MM (though I am seriously considering moving to 140, we'll see).

http://www.silenx.com/quiet.fans.asp?sku=efx-12-12

So far, I like them. The 690 is not annoying when it warms up (during benches for example) but given the cost, I want to make sure there is as much cool air getting there as possible :)

Front and side fans intake, back and top fans exhaust, though I may swing things around to experiment more.

Thus far, they move decent amounts of air without really being audible. My system at idle is completely silent.

We got a baller in the house.

The 690 looks really thin in the pictures.. is it thinner than a 670/680 or is it just the angle?

It's probably the lighting, because the darker parts of the metal shroud seem to blend into the motherboard. It's a dual-slot solution and is at least as wide as my old 580 GTX although most definitely longer.

I'll probably take better pics after further cleaning up over the weekend.

This is another person's system but he has the same case and card:


logical Sep 26, 2012 08:00 PM

Ah, Indeed the lighting... I couldnt see that second layer of black there. I never read reviews for the x90 cards cause I would never buy them.. so I havent actually seen one in a case.

Enjoy that amazing card Sazar! :D

May I ask why it seems that the fans on the CPU heatsink are blowing forward, and the rear fan next to it is blowing rearward? Am I mistaken?

If not, wouldn't you want your CPU blowing back and that rear fan removing it from the case?

Those are corsair fans I believe. Forgot model name but it's one of the most recent line ups.

Mine blows towards the rear.

The red band is the front of the fan. Exhaust out the rear.

BababooeyHTJ Oct 1, 2012 06:36 PM

I really wish that Corsair would make an SP140 and release it at the price of the 120mm models. I would buy a few.

They seem like a decent fan at $15.

Holy ****. I must have dyslexia. When I read your response I was like, "No **** Shirlock" and then I went to see the picture again I was like, "Oooohhhhh, that's the way he has them installed".

I'm a retard.

Naa it's all good dude, they are pushing massive air as I type this. :heart:

sorry it took so long but I have been waiting since Summer for the 4-way SLI bridge to come to market . . .

in the mean-time I switched from the ASUS Rampage IV to an EVGA SR-X (dual procs) and will have 96 gigs of ram

EVGA SR-X and 4-way connector installed



DarthBeavis Oct 2, 2012 08:34 PM

24 terabytes in Will be installing a couple Intel Xeon E5-2650 processors,

shadow001 Oct 2, 2012 10:12 PM

Nice setup indeed....:up:


I might pick up the SR-X when Intel releases the ivy bridge-E Xeon's, wich according to the tech report will pack 12 cores on each processor for the high end versions, but count on them costing near 2000$ each so they're not cheap....:(

Nice rig DarthBeavis! What CPU coolers will you be using?

Blue fans on a red mobo, COLORBLIND!!!













Looks good dude.

BababooeyHTJ Oct 3, 2012 05:58 PM

What are you going to be using for rads on that loop? Which pump? Did you plumb those cards in parallel?

So what is it for?

Plan on doing some hard core CUDA computing?

My favorite part is how wussy Shadow's computer is by comparison. Guess he is gonna have to upgrade sooner than expected.
