  1. Once again, I want to first apologize for Using a different chassis in the end from a competitor but at the same time, I still used the chassis for a friends rig I gave him. Also Btw, I won some TT peripherals back then too I haven't used so I hooked him up with a new mouse n keyboard =) He says thanks to Thermaltake! as regardless, you guys when I won stuff helped me help him.
  2. So, I decided to do this last night, and then take pics in the morning. I am SORRY THERMALTAKE! But it had to be done. Don't worry, I still used the chassis to swap with =) Here is the rig my friend is going to get, Still far better than his current. I got it as good looking I could for him, He needs to pick it up already! haha. Then, While I went off and did that, Of course I had to swap out the new rig as well, and here it is! Look at Radeon Lurking in the shadows! And of course side panel off so you can see the rest. And a no flash. I facepalmed when I was changing out rigs too, cause I forgot to clean my buddies rig I am giving him, and well... I had to dust it out as well adding another ugh moment to my week haha.
  3. I think I just may be in trouble with this Chassis, I had to add another fan, stress the PSU Cables more and also turn it into a push pull Intake instead of exhaust.
  4. Yeah, I love AIO's, Specifically Asetek, I wish this was a Asetek cooler for the CPU . But yeah, I was gonna put it in Pull for the GPU, but it just made sense to put it as push seeing that the Chassis front Fan pushes cold air into the case, so theres a more better ambient temp for the radiator getting a Fresher air intake. Than pulling what it can. Of course also I haven't looked at the static pressure of this fan either for the r9 295x2 BUT it will most likely happen eventually if I see it heat up more than id Like to, as it cooled down, so when its summer next year, Id know for sure to put it in pull to get a little more cooler air in and what not. I haven't played any games yet really just tested, as I am redownloading them now, But I will let ya know. =) Also regarding the PSU, Yeah its Cozy, but snug too, The wires are at their limits with being bent to get pushed behind into the back as the modular cables as you can see are putting up a fight, but not enough to where something bad will happen most likely.
  5. I know its not really clean, I coulda did a few things with the Fan cables for the CPU Cooler, but I felt lazy and my hands are too big and didn't wanna pull out the tweezers haha. Also the PSU I could barely make that better but eh Work with what you got! Honestly. Idk, Some BF4, Dota 2, maybe some Wildstar and Diablo 3. While it seems over kill to everyone these days to play those games with this gpu, having the power in the future is also nice to have, as well as what if I go 4k? There goes the GPU Usage right away sometime in the future, so its necessarily not too crazy of a setup, its actually Pretty freaking awesome so far. As Also I noticed, They actually use quite some GPU Usage too, I say this because some people don't take into effect some huge battle scenes. Where Ive seen some GPU's dip hard down in the FPS because of those parts, and also during streaming gets effected hard, because of course Imma be streaming again too now! =)
  6. So... Without Further waiting, as I tried some stuff, had to attempt stuff, and the sore back that came from juggling between 3 computers. I present to you the last and final piece that I got! INTRODUCING THE R9-295X2!!!!! Lets go over a few things. Its a Chaser A41 Snow Edition from Thermaltake I won during a giveaway, which also I won with the Kingston 16GB HyperX 1866MHz Memory Kit. Also from that giveaway was the Inwin 1200w Commander II Power Supply. Other parts not mentioned is a 120gb SSD I had, as well as a 30gb Sata 2 SSD, and 1tb Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid Drive. So I pretty much had the base Build ready, I really did not feel like letting any parts go to waste, So I used what I could, Good or bad. So, there were a few hard parts about this build. First, A Suitable PSU, Making sure I had the power to supply what Is needed, For those who do not know, You need a PSU First for the 295x2 to consume 28amps PER RAIL/8pin. This PSU has 4 Rails, I used rail 4 and rail 3, Single connector ONLY, as they each can only do 40amps. Also don't forget the Molex Connector for the GPUs to receive a healthy current as well. This is key to know. Also the PSU with 2x EPS (motherboard 8pin's) Is needed, But one has to be a 4+4 pin. This is to make sure the 9590 receives healthy current the entire time, as the Asus ROG Crosshair V Formula Z has a dedicated 8pin and optional 4pin. Now, While I do now know that 2 cooler setups one being on the CPU as a AIO Cooler, and the other on the GPU which thankfully was a 120mm radiator as well, I ran into a issue. With both taking up space, The Biggest problem was, Where am I going to put these?!?!?!. I almost got rid of the CPU AIO because I couldn't mount it above due to Cables from the EPS Getting in way, as the Motherboard Layout ruins quite a bit of things. I noticed this usually happens on ROG Boards. Now with both figured out where to go, Cable Management was near impossible. With needed 2 Dedicated rails to the GPU, I had 2 PCI-E Powers that are non modular taking up space, as well as a few others. Including needing power for the Mobo 4pin Molex to the GPU, and 2x Sata cables, one for HDD's and one for the single DVD Drive (Cant reach with single cable). I was still SLIGHTLY able to manage putting it together. The one thing I wanted to do but could not, I wanted to make the 295x2 Radiator Push air into the case, not Push out. The reason I could not is because the radiator has to sit on the bottom of the case, as the radiator comes too much out the sides and would effect the PSU Cables more that were modular. So, Without blabbing some more, I will finish this up with the following... It was Challenging, It was fun, It will be going through some massive gaming sessions, and I couldn't be happier as I love challenges So please feel free to Ask any questions for me. Look how close it was just for the gpu...haha! And of course, Windowed off, showing just the after glow of epicness.
  7. Nawh, since its 5ghz turbo, Ill keep it stock, I enjoy things stock =) I may end up running into a few hiccups with this build though... will find out tomorrow for sure if I can make something work or not. Id hate to have to change chassis
  8. Dual Expansion Slot VGA With 260mm. But also the specifications also say 255mm inner chassis and 285mm outer Chassis Just wanted to give that 260mm specified on website outside of the specification tab people didn't see =)
  9. Ok, so this is what was in the box =) FX-9590 incase those don't know.
  10. =) Shannon Robb probably been wondering what I was gonna do with this chassis since Christmas time.
  11. So, Been awhile... Thought Id post whats in the making. I'm building a new rig, and I am giving a rig to my friend for free, this is what I am starting my build around. Over today and tomorrow, I will be posting pics.
  12. Uninstall software, then Try another USB Header. Also make sure you have your Mobo drivers installed/up to date.
  13. True indeed, but I just don't know why there is a triangular shape at the palm wrest. What is the reason to it possibly? As why not just make the theron without that triangular part =P. Cause trust me, the theron has one of my favorite features, "walls around the left and right click to prevent fingers sliding off mouse". Also hope you having fun at QC darnit! haha
  14. Haha, It's all good, I rather would say something, it start being looked at more, and actually could potentially be a good idea if I said something. Hence why feedback is always appreciated =P The finger bank on the level 10m Hybrid, I honestly would not know if I would like it or hate it, My pinky ended adapting to mice over the years and like turned under my ring finger half way it seems, Maybe it would be comfortable though =)
  15. the ventus looks awesome I do gotta say, I still don't like alot of mice because they stopped "palm grip" Support. I say stopped because why else would the m4/m5 buttons be in the middle of the mouse instead of more near the base of the mouse? I gotta say I think I have fairly large hands and I have heard it from others too, But unless my thumb is considered small, it seems it's hard to come by a mouse at all anymore that I know of that shows true palm grip support. My thumb should be able to reach bother M4 and M5 without moving my thumb, only rocking the thumb to activate, so the tip of my thumb should be halfway down the M5 button while the joint of my thumb should be in the middle of the m4 button give or take a little room. Of course personal opinions and I doubt ill ever get a hand crafted palm grip mouse specifically for me, but I do feel as if Palm grip users get the short end of the stick these days =P Not specifying to TT just in general, I just feel as they make them more "Flexible" for various styles, but I don't think I have seen a single Palm specific mouse in ages, while you see tons of finger and claw grip specific mouses. A example would be the level 10m The DPI Thunderbolt looking button is probably where m4 should be, and m4 should be m5 and then the m5 should be the dpi thunderbolt button. Of course, I don't use/have it so I can't say, but its just a example where buttons would possibly go for palm grip users to use those m4/m5 buttons easier. I do thank you for reading this and not commenting because you use Claw, but still would love to know what you think, Heck maybe try it for awhile see if the issue occurs on you and come send some chatter this way =)
  16. If you did NOT UNINSTALL the software before updating, this may be the reason why. Here is a Direct link to Thermaltake for the cooler which is a setup.exe See if Uninstalling the software, Then deleting the softwares FOLDER it was in ect. and finally installing the link below will fix it. Other than that all I can say is wait on TT to respond, as it may or may not be a issue and the firmware was just misnamed after installation from the installer. https://www.thermaltakeusa.com/db/support/software/CLW0224_0a17e26c9f774990a4ee4b2f6d0981c9.rar
  17. So, Over the years using my TT Theron I reviewed, I have noticed something I really never got questioned on, and that was on the Theron mouse. I honestly hate the mouse for one reason and that is specifically that Triangular shape that comes onto the palm. I DO like the mouse It got a good rating from me, But as palm grip user, I can not use it extended periods of time, it just becomes unbearable for my hand style, It may be slightly different as my palm grip, but it is still a palm grip, I bring this up because it still is a ongoing issue for me over the years and recently I put it away again as I switch from mice seasonally between a few. As TT says this as a description "The ergonomic shape of the THERON allows precise fingertip grips or comfortable palm grips to keep you comfortable while you focus on the game at hand." Now I personally underlined Palm Grips to show it's there, but Honestly, I still can't see that as the case as I tried "Normal" Palm grip styles as well and I just can't get it to click with me. The issue here is that the Triangular shape actually effects MY hand by agitating the bones, then also seeming like nerves as it slowly over times effects most of my hand. Now don't get me wrong, I like the mouse. Simply put I can't use it as much as I would like to but also still curious to why they would change the mouse from a rounded palm area to a triangular one, I just don't see how it works out. I would love to talk about it more to TT at one point, as it seems like it will be a continued product, maybe figure out why such a issue exists with me, and possibly who knows... May change the theron from triangular shaped to rounded again like every other mouse if its a actual issue with other users. So Thermaltake, and Users let me know, DO others face this issue? am I the rare breed who can't use it? do you think this is worth mentioning to possibly look into it and change it to rounded? Always try to improve products on my end by even giving these details, as most people who know me, I game all day with little sleep and I can put a Gaming product to the test and see long term effects =) Thanks for reading, and would love to see the replys this gets as Thermaltake new forum!
