Re: Ratdude's Main Rig V6

I think the issue is Novabench, not the system.

Re: DVI-I DL *female* to VGA female adapter

VGA to DVI cables are a thing... I have a couple of them that I bought from Monoprice a long time ago (was tired of fiddling with adapters, and all I had back then were VGA-only CRTs and LCDs). VGA...

Nope, no change in FPS.

Re: Yet another RD workstation build... Socket F Fun!

The Westemere system is single GPU, score of 211
The Opteron system is dual GPU SLI'd, score of 523.

All GPUs here are 4GB GTX 970's. Probably different clockrates, I'd have to look it up.
