    I love this video about the card that was made back in the day.

    Where to buy replacement IHS for 4690k?

    I believe the Skylake and Kabylake IHS are slightly thicker due to a thinner PCB, so it probably will not work without shaving some off

    Modding a EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 power pins

    If you're really set on trying this, step one should just be to get the pump to turn on. Try with just the power wires and once you get it working then add the PWM stuff since the pump will run without those. I would definitely ditch the adapters you have though, it could be why it's not...

    Power Supply with USB-C Charging?

    There is definitely more to it than raw power output but I wouldn't think it's something that is that hard to do. There are power supplies that have USB hookups to monitor and change how some things work inside of them, I don't see it as a super stretch to add a bit extra so that you could have...

    Power Supply with USB-C Charging?

    Hey guys, I am looking to upgrade to a new laptop that can be charged over USB-C, but it would be nice to just leave the charger at work and charge at home via a port that can deliver the 80 watts needed to charge quickly. AFAIK a motherboard wouldn't be able to deliver that kind of power. I'm...

    Solutions for direct die mounting?

    Unfortunately that doesn't work with Skylake processors, otherwise I would have ended up going that route. I hope that EKWB ends up making a new kit for the 6000 series though, the aqua computer one isn't quite what I was looking for.

    Solutions for direct die mounting?

    If anyone is curious and finds this thread, there is a product from Aqua Computer that allows the stock CPU socket to clamp down without the stock heat spreader. You might need to modify your CPU cooler to fit the socket though. Aqua Computer Webshop - Spacer für Intel Skylake CPUs 51180

    Solutions for direct die mounting?

    Hey guys, I have been looking around for a while but haven't really come up with an answer to this. I have taken the lid off my 6600K and redone the thermal paste, however I am really interested in mounting my waterblock direct to die. I don't have anything crazy right now (a Corsair H110) but...

    New Corsair Carbide 400C

    The top definitely has room for fans + a radiator as long as you don't get a super thick rad with thick fans. The fans are offset to the window of the case so you need to worry more about bumping your RAM than you would the edge of the motherboard. I've seen AIO's like the H100GTX fit up there...

    New Corsair Carbide 400C

    Definitely not glass, feels like plastic but I'm not sure what kind.

    Doom Alpha GPU test

    Really a 60FPS hard cap in 2016? That's unfortunate.

    New Corsair Carbide 400C

    Wow, very close build! I ended up not getting the Ripjaws/Sapphire Nitro/MSI board due to stock at my local NCIX. Nice build!

    New Corsair Carbide 400C

    Anyone else have this case yet? I just picked it up yesterday for my new build. I'm a big fan of not having spots for an optical drive as I never use it and only have 2.5" drives. Plus the whole side panel being a window is super cool! Cable management is so easy too. I don't think I have...
