EMPEROR's RIG

Description

Oldie, but goldie Served me well for few years now. For me it is my comfort after a long day at work, or after a fight with the worse half
Unfortunately lately my mighty 7950 started dying on me... first there are graphic glitches, that I believe are due to bad ram chip, and also the problematic fans that are already noisy...
Still my rig is fighting the war against the dark side of the force (Battlefront is my biggest drug lately), but I hope it won't fail as the budget doesn't fit with a new video card...

P.S. Little bit of update

3820 -> 5820 -> 5820 -> Threadripper

MSI X79 -> MSI X99A -> MSI X99 Godlike Gaming -> MSI X399 Gaming Pro Carbon

DDR3 -> DDR4 -> DDR4 -> DDR4

Sapphire 7950 -> MSI R9 390 -> MSI R9 390 -> MSI R9 390

CM 922 -> HAF X -> HAF X -> HAF X

Pics to follow...

Maybe you could trade your wife for a new graphics card and a microwave?

Re: EMPEROR's RIG

Since I didn't win the new year's giveaway, I bought a second 7950 and put it in first place, so the load is mostly on it, and my current one as the second card. This doesn't solve my problems, but at least can postpone it for a while My wife stays... for now

Re: EMPEROR's RIG

I also had a problem with the HD 7950 fans, 1 of 2 failed actually wich resulted in alot heat and graphical issues. Instead of buying a new card I bought an Accelero Arctic Xtreme IV 280(X) to replace the original fans and it's running cooler and more silent than ever before. So that might be an option for you.

Re: EMPEROR's RIG

Yeah, I was thinking about the same cooler actually. But the fact that now I have to buy 2 of them is still making me wonder if I should go to single 390 instead or wait for R9 Nano to drop down a little...

Re: EMPEROR's RIG

Yeah 2 is getting a bit pricey indeed. I would wait for a better offer on one of them new cards probably. Or hope you win the contest one

Re: EMPEROR's RIG

If I win a new card from a contest, I will give you one of my 7950s
