ASUS Launches World's First Graphics Cards with Super ML CapsSuper ML Cap
Constantly seeking to improve and bring new ideas to the table Asus have introduced the first graphics card to make use of Multilayer Polymer Capacitors. These caps can be found in the new non reference ENGTX285 and EAH4890.
Asus promise the Super ML caps will yield better overclocking results up to 3.3 times and stay around 15C cooler compared to reference designs of the GTX285. The Voltage tweaker seen in their previously released 4890 is also featured in the new EAH4890, which paired with the new caps will allow up to 3 times better overclocking margins. A decrease in GPU temperature is also expected to be around 10C.
For most manufacturers this would have been enough, but Asus decided to include EMI shielding, covered chokes, low RDS(on) MOSFETs, and solid capacitors, which in turn will contribute to the cards stability and overclocking potential.

Tbh matey that kit is going to stuggle with your cpu anyways so dont add anything else.
My advise would be to get the money together for a custom system with hand picked parts, this will cost a fair bit though but the performance difference is huge.

Thanks TTL for your honesty, so now I'll have to do some research into which parts to get for the mobo and the 2 bfg8800gts i have to put in.
All ideas welcome.

Thanks for the info Tom, I have now put that kit into this rig just cooling the cpu with 2 push & 2 pull fans keeping temps at 40C but not oc'd yet.:worship:
As anyone moded the Cosmos S yet and is it worth painting with parts being plastic.

I've not done anything drastic to mine, but it does look great with a sexy black powdercoat inside. Also, if you can, cool that hot beast of a nb (not with the x2o thing tho)

hi Diablo, its the Q9550 that is going into the S case on a EVGA 790i ultra board thats why i need some pointers into what to get for that board. Was thinking with the Green/black of the board to do a deep purple to make it stand out.

I'm probably not the best person to speak to about this. I had my cosmos s powdered on the inside black, which would go well with the evga colours. I'm not an expert on paints, so you probably want to speak to ttl for advice on this

22-05-2009, 12:06:58

thanks diablo, will get in touch with ttl and see what & how much.

Powder internals is £50 dude, and paint starts at £200 for externals.

World is your oyster though, anycolour and finish worldwide can be done :D

Or give me some guidelines and Ill pick out the best colour for you ;)
