Re: Quiet 4K multi-monitor DisplayPort graphics card help

Thanks for the help gentlemen. It seems like the Strix is the way to go. How important is the 10 bit per channel colour support? It seems that nVidia hasn't yet enabled 10 bit support on GeForces, only on Quadros. Similar situation with AMD, only some of their workstation cards support 10 bit. Also...

Re: Quiet 4K multi-monitor DisplayPort graphics card help

Depending on budget, Asus Strix GTX 960 with 2GB or 980 with 4GB, both with 3 DP. Most GTX 970 don't have many DP.

Re: Recommend me a 140mm Case Fan :)

You may even remove the front fan and see how bad temps are affected, the GPU might climb 3 - 4 degrees higher.
The 212 Evo is a bit weak for your overclocked 4770k, and this may result in fan rpm higher than comfortable at max load.

Re: SPCR's Holiday ATX Gaming Build Guide

Thank you for the review. For me the most interesting part was the 10C drop after modding the Define R4. While it is regarded as a very good SPCR-class case, it's obviously still far from optimal. A case that would dampen noise like the stock R4 (or better) while providing less resistance to airflow...

For this you'd have to take the cooler off the GPU, clean the stock TIM with remover and purifier, then apply the new quality TIM ...

For me this product would only make sense for the cooling of an overclocked Haswell-E.

However I'd like to propose an alternative / ...
