yeah they are very nice i was in a top up between the 465 or the 460 but i read the 460 comes out on top also the stats for the 465 look rubbish compared to the 460. i was tempted by the 470 but i know i would not use power they can do or notice the difference. so 460 is best. yeah i love my mobo its very very good when i get a bit more money going to put some more ram in :)

Yeh the 465's are a waste of time really, 460's are great little cards :)

Hows the vreg and n/b holding out on the stock cooler with your oc? I know they can get a bit toasty thats why i put a bitspower mobo block on mine :)

Also whats that panel covering the gpu's on your case? The last pic.

Yeh the northbridge, and the vreg (mosfets) around the cpu area ;) I know they get hot on the stock cooling. I had my q9650 at 4ghz and if i remember rightly they were around 90c after running linx O_o. But that bitspower block really helped the temps, halved the temps if i remember correctly :)

Right now im selling my rig, its a long story and i dont wanna bore you with it lol. But i will be building another one soon.

Also EK waterblocks do seperate blocks for n/b, s/b and mosfets for the 790i ultra, atleast they did, probably still be able to get them.

Is it the EVGA 790i ultra?

no i have the XFX ah right yeah i know what you mean now.... i am unsure of the temps around them, i have not really thought about it i know i should. but been more worried about my CPU, i have no down graded it to 3.50 GHZ i dont want to fry my system, and i need to get some water cooling in :) thats why i have joined hear to get some expeirence on how to do it n all... i am doing some looking round now, i am find it very exciting learning this (sad and geeky i know) but its wicked!!!!!!

i have been look at the water cooling kit on hear are they any good? or am i better of building my own? and learning from scratch

A WatercoolingUK own brand waterkit would be your best bet, if not you can customise your own kit and we'll give you advice :)

Nah lol its not sad and geeky, its a cool hobby ;)

The wcuk kits have good components in them, more or less what you would probably buy if you were doing your own loop/s. But the fun is buying your own stuff to your personal tastes as theres so many waterblocks, radiators and reservoirs etc. So you can really make your loop/s original.

I started off with a Swiftech all in one kit, much like the corsair h50 and went on from there/ Mistakes were made along the way but nothing costly, its all part of the fun :)

Read lots of build logs, here and xsforums there has been some amazing work done. You pick up alot of ideas by doing this ;)

Nice cards. Are they the EE (external exhaust) with the fan at the rear, or does it have the fan in the middle of the card? Im looking into buying the SC, then in a few months maybe sli :)

here is a picture of my old card GTX260

i love the cards they are amazing the EVGA are good ones as EVGA have just release a firmware upgrade and it upgrades it to run about 5% faster and thats a factory standard, also just bought the latest mag for pc format and they are comparing the 460 SLI EVGA 756 version and they are saying that 2 of them a very close to a GTX 470 and they are saying that an SC 460 1 Gig version over clock a tiny bit on an SLI is the same as a GTX 480 single so i think thats pretty wicked

Check this out this show the firm ware upgrade and what it actually gives

After the BIOS update your GPU will now be clocked at 720MHz compared to the 675MHz clockspeed of the original, with the Shader clocks upped to 1440MHz from its 1400MHz roots.
That's a fairly hefty overclock without having to actually do any overclocking yourself. Bargain.

they are well worth the investment these cards they really are amazing.......

Nice, used to be a regular on evga forums, big fan of there products and the company, really is none better imo.

Does that bios update apply for all the EVGA 460's? Gonna be ordering my 460sc tomorrow :)

Also yours is the EE version, which will take the EK blocks if you ever want to watercool them. Same as the SC cards :) Yours are the 1gb versions yeh, if they are the ftw editions?

EDIT: Cool, just read it and its for all versions. Gotta love EVGA!

Thanks for the link ;)
