  1. I'd try a different driver. I enjoyed the game ready driver for Grand Theft Auto V. Seemed pretty good for all my games. I would still be using that but Windows 10 update broke it haha. I've gotten that game freeze + audio loop a few times in the past, and I'm pretty certain I kept trying different drivers till it worked.
  2. Yeah, certainly no point in doing it, but would be interesting seeing if the 3.5GB VRAM issue would go away. Are you having to use stencils and all that fun stuff to clean up the pads for the core swap? Glad power isn't and issue, what about thermals? I know you did that cool radiator mod, so that'll help some. I guess we'll find out the more you do!
  3. Oh, I meant 980 on 970 both desktop versions. But yeah, with the memory bandwidth issues, you'll probably right in that it won't work. Look forward to your next core swap. Are you using a re-work station or just the glorious oven? What about power supply issues? I know MXM can pour quite a bit of wattage through it, but in the higher tier cards won't this start to become more of an issue?
  4. That's so awesome you managed to pull it off! I wonder how things would handle with a 980 core on a 970 board with the memory issues. Will the 285 on your 7970m be the next big test? Or do you have other plans before jumping to that point? Coming soon from Tech|Inferno : Titan XM
  5. There are two electric linear actuators on each side of the display bezel to deploy/retract the little hooks that keep the lid closed. Yes there are springs, but that's only to keep them closed or keep them open, to deply/retract is done with the actuators. Same kinda thing on the lower hinge arm if I remember right. I already have all the electrical schematics and have the M2010 full disassembled.
  6. I picked the MSi one since I've enjoyed my previous two MSi boards. If you can spare the funds, I would go with the Asus Rampage board, best 2011-3 mobo out there.
  7. This is a smidge over budget, but a very solid 5820K + Titan X build at the ~$2300 pricepoint. The price would drop quite a bit if you went to the GTX 980. But @Brian could vie for the glory of the Titan X.

  9. Whoops, didn't see the first message. My GPU died on me again too. So I got rid of a lot of the random internal stuff. I still have all the chassis / screen to continue this but.... Overall of why I didn't continue: 1. Integrating all the random hinge latch electronics 2. Keyboard plug, couldn't figure that one out 3. UPS system to swap from battery to plug that can support the current needed 4. GPU -> display interconnect 5. Sheer amount of time for this to get the above working 6. Funding it 7. My miniITX build in signature (for now ) + monitor is smaller and way better than this could ever hope to turn out sadly. It's mainly interfacing with the chassis that messes a lot of things up. Power supply being the other huge factor. If these two are resolved, it would actually go rather smoothly. Perhaps in the future, since this would be really fun to haul around.
  10. I like the box it comes in. Neat packaging.
  11. Wow pls mister. I'm quite interested in the Quadro M6000 myself. Looking forward to my centralized home server project. Hopefully the GeForce edition of the Titan X can be converted to look like a Quadro M6000 like so: [MOVED] Hacking NVidia Cards into their Professional Counterparts - Page 1
  12. The amount of fury and rage.... Is it possible to flash the other vBIOS on the new card to allow OC'ing? Or is there something restricting you.
  13. True, I wonder why Gigabyte was also included specifically then. And even a particular model of Gigabyte GPU within. Oh well. Going to be interesting.
  14. That class action lawsuit is only for Gigabyte it seems. Wonder if there will be others for the other manufacturers.
  15. Correct, the R1 doesn't support mSATA. The daugtherboard for the mPCIe/mSATA ports is the same in the R1/R2 model. So when I swapped my R1 mobo to a R2 mobo, the mSATA then worked.
  16. Are you talking about the M.2 SSDs? Those will not work as the M14 R1/R2 only have a mSATA slot (only the R2 has mSATA support). And you can't put a M.2 card in a mSATA port or vice versa. You can pick up mSATA drives for decently cheap however. I personally had normal SSD in main drive spot, HDD in disc caddy, mSATA SSD in the mSATA slot.
  17. RAM: I see no reason for the variance in prices like that. Go for the lower latency cause no reason to do so in this case, maybe they dun goof'd. I'd pounce on that. Cooler: Do you still have the 2011 bracket for it? I'm pretty sure it is the same. 15 second Googling (the finest) says it will work, but the newer CPUs are a bit taller, so just watch the pressure. Mobo: The Asus X99-A seems quite fine enough. The X99-PRO looks kinda sweet and supports 3300 RAM apparently. But seems a non-issue since you don't have RAM that'll touch that speed anyways. The X99-PRO also has WiFi built in and a nifty M.2 adapter, so that would be awesome for someone like me (since I'm rigged up on wireless) - plus it looks a loot fancier with that shroud thinger xD...
  18. I prefer straight lemon juice, directly into my eyeball. But yes I agree, much better paying the price and getting the slightly less awful stuff upfront. That Clevo P750ZM is looking mighty nice...
  19. How do those BGA to PGA CPUs you see on eBay work then o-o...
  20. Just a little desoldering, socket soldering, heatpipe modding. This laptop is right up your alley!
  21. I've use the Kraken X40 and the Kraken X61 only on my CPU. I would've used the X40 with the G10 on my GPU, except I changed builds to a miniITX. Sooooo: X40 is very suitable for a GPU. Or any other similar cooler of this side. Also, the Corsair H60 will not work. It has the more square styled pump block right? You need one of the round versions. Like that of the X40/1 X60/1 - or for Corsair cooling solutions: H50, H55, H75, H105, H110. Essentially any cooler with that round pump base - Asetek built.
  22. I would like to add something to this: If you somehow mess something up while pulling voltages off the PSU or the wrong pins when doing this. Some PSUs (that I've tried) have a safety system that causes them to permanently be off. If this ever occurs, remove the paperclip / switch the SWEX off, unplug the PSU from mains power, and wait a minute or so. Then can simply reconnect everything to get it working again. As a more temporary solution, you can also shove the paperclip on the "wire-side" of the 20/24-pin plug. I've done this when forcibly jump-starting a motherboard (to my surprise it actually worked). For the more adventurous (aka the dangerous method - not responsible if you injure yourself or others in any fashion), you can open up the PSU and solder the PS-ON (green wire) to the COM (black/ground). This way, whenever the PSU is plugged into mains power, it is switched on. I've done this for my bench-top power supplies for the cheap. For eGPU and other more permanent solutions I recommend getting a SWEX. It is a very safe and very reliable method.
  23. Congratulations, awesome to see you living up to the T|I motto "We put technology to the test" - --- - And on a laptop too none-the-less, very impressive work! Can't wait to see your build sourced from your winnings. You got quite a nice grab-box of parts there to get your build started, and especially with Black Friday sales going on, getcha a nice 4790K for cheap! Made a build on pcpartpicker using the parts you won + things to get. Chose the NZXT H440 case since it's orange/black like your motherboard. Tossed in a 1TB WD Black for a secondary drive. And figure you'll probably want a nice GPU, so chose the GTX 980, but can go with the GTX 970 if you want.

  24. H.264 is video decoding. I wouldn't worry too much about this assuming you aren't trying to use really old hardware. Steam In Home Streaming is essentially just rendering everything on one computer, and client computers just remote into it to show the game + controls. So essentially pretend you are gaming on the computer you are streaming from + a bit of extra strain from streaming. --- The laptop in your signature would do farrrrrr better than the one in your post.
