I know. I just want to know the price and release date on the STRIX 1070, but if that isn't coming out for a while I'll pay the retard tax and get a FE because I'm thinking of moving to an ITX build.

It all depends. They're not popular among most of the /g/ audience because the cards themselves run hotter, so there's less overclocking potential. But they do keep the rest of your system cooler by ejecting the hot air out of the system. If your case has shitty ventilation, blower coolers are definitely better. Also if the card itself does not run very hot, then blower coolers are more viable as well.

>> No.54981099

Any specific reason you're opting for STRIX?

Smaller transistors use less power, but they're packed denser, so the end result is harder to cool eventhough the TDP is the same.

From what we've seen, yes. But who knows, maybe the card has so much overclocking potential that a blower style cooler can't cool the card at its maximum speed. Maybe it's doesn't live up to the hype and is hot, we just don't know that much yet.

Now for something a little bit different: the GT 440 OEM.

Nvidia needed a place to put the bad GF106 dies, so they ended up on these cards. All of the memory channels are active, but one of the shader clusters was turned off. Neat little single slot card, although mine is a bit of a bastard to cool.

Well, its a bastard to cool mainly because the way its set up in my case there's nowhere for the heat to go (its in the 7th case slot at the bottom of the motherboard, and the PSU is right next to it), and on top of that this card has the voltage unlocked, so I bumped that up to get the card to 800mhz

Is that actually from SEL or is that a copy from that neato dankweb site Mutahar went to?

>> No.54990008

Oh, and since the fans on my case are crap, I have to run them without filters to get any decent airflow, and that results in cat fur getting sucked in, which in turn gets stuck on the heatsink past the fan.

>Achieving 800mhz on a 40nm lithography

GTS 450, which uses the same chip as the 440 OEM, could get upwards of 950mhz. It overclocked really really well.

I cant go higher for 2 reasons: Card gets too hot, and I'm limited to what the slot can give me in terms of power, which is a little over 75W.

Well cant help you there. The only card I've ever had from the red team that worked was a radeon HD 4870x2, and I got rid of that because the beast ran enormously loud and hot.

That, and I was pretty sure my PSU was running near capacity feeding it and a well overclocked Q9400.

Heh, you'd probably be better off either going C2Q, LGA 1156 chips, or Thuban, as LGA 1366 boards are prohibitively expensive.

You're right, the gigabyte X58 UD5 I'd be wanting is a pricey piece, and it's not even sandy bridge.

Yeah, the LGA 1366 boards are pricey, and gigabyte ones moreso as their older pre-sandy bridge stuff was the shit to get. A Thuban based system should be much cheaper, and while not super-top of the line when it came out, it was a beast of a chip in its own right and could hold its own in some cases against a 920.

Oh yeah, thats a bit of a toaster, both figuratively and literally. If your board supports it though going to 45nm LGA 775 is certainly an option especially since there's the method of making LGA 771 chips (which are better binned and can overclock to the moon) work on 775 boards.

Sadly 65nm is all I can do on this old thing, it is a beast for what it is, and I can overclock it to 2.7GHz via software.

>> No.54990480

Oh well, looks like you're stuck with going to Thuban then.

If you want to go crazy though, its possible to overclock G34 chips with the proper board. Not extremely high, but the right setup can easily see G34 Mangy-Cours (dual-thuban processors) CPUs hitting 3.6ghz, and 2 of them would net 24 cores running at that speed. Cooling (moderate strength air cooling) and power are going to be concerns going that route, so keep that in mind.

IIRC didnt you say in an earlier thread you used your computer for video editing?

Yes I use it for sony vegas, the HD7750 really helps there. the only gaming I do is halo PC, gta san andreas and various older games.

>> No.54990537

Well in theory if Sony Vegas will use em, 24 cores at 3.6ghz should you go that route would beat the crap out of your Q6600 in rendering times. How well they'll stack up to the 7750 in terms of rendering remains to be seen but they should do well against it as well.

Because it uses the same silicon as the GTS 450 (which also has SLI), just with different things turned on and off, so the hardware on-chip for SLI is already there, making it relatively cheap to just slap the finger on the PCB design.
