Thanks for that. I'm heading home today so I'll order some stuff when I get home now. I was going to order it early so I had it as soon as I got back. I need to learn patience I think.
Are you going to swap out the mATX board Matty?
I am interested as the original AW mobo has not got the most fantastic bios for o/c... I was looking at the Asus Maximus V GENE as a replacement.
On board high quality sound card etc and be still able to go to quad 690!!!
you cant go quad anything in an aurora case or is the 690 a duel gpu card
its like running to 6990s. since they are 2 6970s on one card basically your running quadfire.Yeah that's the plan. The Maximus is on the top of my list too but I believe it's just for the socket 1155 CPUs. I was going to put it in my older Aurora with a i7-3770K CPU. You'll need a motherboard that supports socket 2011 CPUs.
The 690 is a dual card. It's 2 680's joined up. I have never understood though why people say 'quad 690' when its still only 2 cards. It should be more like quad 680's or dual 690's. Am I crazy??
sorry man didnt mean to come in and say ha ha you cant do that. ive fallen behind on nvidia cards man they are to rich for me. plus im stickin with radeon from here on out due to they have had more luck with crossfire and eyefinity. but to run 2 690s wouldnt that require more power the the stock 875 in an aurora?Dual 690 have a total of four (quad) cores? sounds better haha!
I have read that two GTX 690s in SLI gives less than 40% gain! Not really worth it..
nVidia haven't really worked it out as well as AMD Crossfire (hate to say it).
I would like to change mobos one day, the board i mentioned is for 2011, I am just worried if i take it apart I might not get it back together again..
Kinda like my dads lawnmower when I was 14!!
Did I mention I can't read proper?
