yeahhhh boy. I just sold 2x msi hawk 5770 cards today for 100 bucks and i'm about to put in a msi gtx760 2gb OC from newegg.com first off... it's friggin huge! make sure you have a big enough computer case for it!

I have a question regarding to my i7 930 cpu. is 90c too hot? minimum temp is 45c at idle and 90c when playing bf4. I'm thinking i might need to reapply new thermal paste and get a new liquid cooling heatsink. I have corsair h20 and Ive had it since i built this thing in 2008. I think it might be going bad :/ I remember having like 70c max for ingame but thing is i hear i7 930 do run hot.

Cant wait to play some bf4 tonight!

I have a i7 920 OC'ed 10% to 2805. Using ASUS Ai Suite. Idle it is at 45 celsius. The i7's do runs hot under load. 90c seems a little hot under gaming load especially with liquid cooling. Mine was running hot after a while. Was getting heat alarms. From your pics, looks like your cooler is clogged up with dust as mine was. Then pic 2 looks like you cleaned it up. Did you remove from the fan section? I found loads of dust all behind there also. I removed the cooling fan from the liquid cooler that is mounted inside the back and found it was clogged up with dust.Should see daylight through it when it is clean. Not the actually heatsink on the CPU. I left that alone. Vac'ed it out and used canned out. Cleaned off all the fans in the tower. Running nice and cool again. I still have 2 HIS 5770's. Running BF4 on low. Been shopping for a new 280x Black edition or a 7950 3GB or a 7970 3GB. All the bitcoin miners are keeping the price way too high to a decend purchase. Was at 260 before Christmas, but I waited too long. So question is, how is the GTX 760 compared to the 2 5770 that were in there?

Need to clean up case a bit, Yes the 920-930 i7 RUN HOTT, my 930 sits @ 4ghz @ 56 degs, and it warms up my 580gtx under water, I got my old 920 (c0) at my buddys house @ 4 ghz 1.3 volts @ 70 degs on mega cooler, with some $$$ low speed fans, Need better fans on it. As for the speed over 2 5770 Night and day, no more micro studder faster ect....

ya the 920-930 is still a great chip, also i got my ht off so i only got 4 core.

FInally in stock at Newegg at a fairly decent price....the R9 280A 3GB Black edition Overclocked Double D for $299.00. Expected arrival is this Tuesday.
Comparison specs is negligible between the 280X and the 280A OC editions of these cards. The selling price of the 280X is still way too high.
A nice upgrade over the 2 5770's I have been using. To be continued.......

Continued....Just installed this XFX 280A over clocked card. Have lots of room in this cooler master high tower case.Wow! Amazing graphics. Running is no longer choppy and sluggish.
I have BF4 video set on Ultra settings. Stunning.
Going to wait for AMD to work out the kinks with Mantle before I venture with those settings.

Have Mantle enabled. So far looks good during my testing. Ultra settings.
NEW Ati Drivers came out this past week or so and Mantle is now included. No more beta drivers.
