Thankfully I have a buyer for the PCI card as I just built my mate's kid a gaming PC, and he is using a Sandybridge CPU and Intel board I got for him for nothing so he has a couple of PCI slots.
daaaamn, i would've bought this off you!

Ayyy, and now we wait. Pretty chuffed since it should be almost twice the speed of my 970 and sort of last piece of the puzzle for my rig.

One of my EVGA CLC 280's fans learned a new feature, 0 RPM mode. I never liked these fans even when they worked so I was almost happy to be able to ditch them.


Got some cheapo Arctic P14 PWM fans, which seemed to be too good to be true on paper - high static pressure, low noise, 7.60€ per fan.





The difference they made was immense. EVGA fans sounded data center tier when spun up, with these I actually hear my WindForce 970 more clearly. Temps aren't half bad either.

Looks great but you need to dust ASAP

Well the heatsinks are clean. :P


For real though, once my GPU arrives I'll dust it.

Arctic make great fans. I used the £4 or so each white 120s for years. Wires are a bit thin, but I never had one fail
