Anascension - Finished

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

been over at OCAU with a worklog of my new build. Been about 3mnths planning and at least a full month building to the stage where I am happy to show it off.

 

Take a look at the worklog if you like.

that is fucking radical!

 

It'd suck if you ever wanted to show it off at a LAN or something though :P My P180 is bad enough, i dont even want to think how much that monstrosity weighs.......

You've seen the Scottish strong men that lift those round stones - honest to fuckin God that was me - carrying the freaking thing outside for daylight shots - I was thinking "Imagine if I trod on a dog bone right now and speared into the concrete". So no Lan's.

Thanks Guys the long story is I spent the whole i7 era contemplating builds and in effect saved a couple of grand over 18mths - so this was my "present" and I'm not disappointed now, Its soo freaking fast - mainly the SSD I spose.

Truly its been a lot of hard work.

5Ghz was achieved yesterday afternoon in my first attempt @ 1.45v. I'm sure there is a whole load of tweaking to do with that, but it was Prime95ing

I did it one afternoon between jobs - kitchen table, mirror, some super fine wet'n'dry & desire to see my face in it. Along with the new block temps drop considerably.
