    Looking for radiator suggestions

    I'm doing some research for both my future build and my employer's upcoming radiator product. Looking to build a list of most popular radiators according to what people actually buy. Why did you buy what you did? Any information is greatly appreciated.

    How quickly does Windows get corrupted when OCing?

    Thanks for that. I've managed to reset to new BIOS so with fast boot disabled I'll try it again.

    How quickly does Windows get corrupted when OCing?

    I work for a company developing some new waterblocks and we're now in the testing phase. As a result of this, I've been spending a lot of time overclocking our 4790k and through repeated BSODs and resets, it looks like Windows is getting corrupted. We're pushing for max speed, rather than long...

    Unable to OC beyond 4.8GHz on water with 4790k

    I didn't really mess with any of those settings. Looking around online, I see a few people winning the lottery with 5GHz at 1.375V and a few at 5 GHz with 1.55V so I may push the voltage up a little further before declaring an impasse. Temperatures are pretty low with our new block setup so I'll...

    Unable to OC beyond 4.8GHz on water with 4790k

    I work for a company developing a line of custom waterblocks and we're currently testing some examples with a Devil's Canyon 4790K i7 chip. My job so far has been to boost clock speed so that we can gather CPU temperatures across a variety of blocks but getting any stability above 4.8GHz has...

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    Went through the internet again and discovered other Linux users with similar issues. A solution seems to have made it through the different forums until I found it here. From what I gather it has something to do with the kernel's power saving modes and others have had success disabling it...

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    The case came with a 60W PSU built for Mini ITX boards. Seeing that the system isn't crashing when going to Memtest86, I don't think the PSU is the problem any longer and I wasn't interested in picking up a full sized spare (I use a separate hacked 350W for bench power in electronics projects)...

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    Dammit I spoke too soon. Even though it got through the memory test fine, it's still doing a hard stop and reboot. Still working on this one.

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    Some updates, along with what I hope is a resolution: I sent the motherboard to Biosstar through RMA, and after about 3 weeks it came back, as the technician noted that it ran for a 12 hour burn-in test without issue. In the meantime I picked up a 160W PicoPSU and just now wired it up (had to...

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    Thanks for the info, everyone. I've checked /var/log/kern.log for some indication of the shutdown/boot process, but do not see anything interesting. I suspect hardware so I'm going to check with Biostar to see what they can do, but in the meantime I've looked deeper in the logs and have found...

    Ubuntu 14.04 restarting after the same amount of time

    I'm getting started with embedded systems and have Ubuntu server installed on a Mini ITX board for portability. It has 4GB of RAM and a 1.1GHz Celeron chip. I've since found that it reboots randomly, but often within a consistent timeframe. Just look at these uptime records from uptimed...

    Stuck: fix or remove mobo blocks?

    I inspect the blocks regularly and they appear to be fine. The Reserator pumps were stripped out immediately after purchase, as I use them mostly as a passive radiator. I have a visual flowmeter on the system outlet in the case and a digital flowmeter on the inlet, and usually I can judge the...

    Stuck: fix or remove mobo blocks?

    Yes, my loop is a little like frankenstein's monster :D I'm a mechanical engineer and like tinkering with different setups (although the downtime is often annoying). I discovered the source of my problem, as the tiny screen in my pump quick connect fitting was plugged up, so a replacement has...

    ASUS P6X58D-e not powering up

    So my computer has been down for a few weeks while my watercooling loop was fixed up. After cleaning the blocks and discovering the problem, I assembled everything together, but unfortunately spilt some nonconducting coolant around the PCIe slots. I dried it as quickly and thoroughly as...

    Stuck: fix or remove mobo blocks?

    I have a problem. Since building my computer in 2011, my loop has morphed to include 2 Reserators, 2 GTX470, 1 120x3 radiator, 1 filter, 2 mosfet blocks, 1 NB/SB block and a CPU block. My loop has been plagued by low flow and for the last month has been stopped while I try to sort things out...
