    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Is this in reference to my post? It'll be tricky to place the rad outside the PC but I'll give it a shot. The chip itself is kind of weird though. I changed the BIOS fan curve from silent to 100%. If I just boot up and launch HW monitor, after a minute the chip settles down to 33c. But as I'm...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    I'm getting max CPU temps during gaming (Skyrim VR) of 89c with a 5800x + AF240. Cinebench R23 Multicore also gets it to 88-89 (modded SkyrimVR is very CPU single core-intensive). My room temperature is ~19c. This is with all stock settings in the BIOS aside from enabling DOCP, and switching the...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Just want to confirm in case anyone finds this thread and the loose bracket in my video - replacing the screws shipped with the LFII rev 3 with 2.5" SATA mounting screws worked like a charm; no more loose brackets. Thanks everyone for the help!

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Wow. I was doing this late at night, but wow. I literally was watching a YouTube video on how to install while installing and I still did it backwards. Thanks for pointing that out :D. I'm still waiting for my RAM to come in so I disassembled everything after taking my video; will try the...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try. What would the setup look like with the long screws? Are you referring to the ones that stick up from the bracket? It doesn't look like there's anywhere on the board to screw them into so that they're in the right position for the thumb screws. Sorry if...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I think I might be having the same issue as some posters above. I did a dry run of mounting my LFII (rev 3) onto my Asus TUF Gaming X570 Pro, and I noticed a few things: The mounting rails still seem pretty loose even after screwing into the standoffs as far as...

    Having trouble choosing a board (5800x)

    Heh that's funny - in the 2nd video he more or less directly equates the TUF Pro and the Tomahawk, which is where I'm stuck myself. The former has 8 SATA ports and the latter has slightly better VRM. I'm leaning toward the TUF Pro, but I've been reading review comments complaining about how the...

    Having trouble choosing a board (5800x)

    I have a 5800x hopefully on the way soon and I've spent the last few hours looking for a board, and can't quite make up my mind. I want to OC so I'd like to get a board that won't hold the chip back excessively (I can barely get my current 4790k stable with a 100 MHz OC and I'm not sure if it's...

    DDR3 for RAMdrive

    Is this because the Windows installation keeps track of what RAM is installed? I thought matching RAM was only important if you're planning to pair new sticks with existing sticks. My existing sticks are using up all the slots on the board so I am planning to replace all of them.

    DDR3 for RAMdrive

    Hello, I'm toying with the idea of setting up a RAMdrive. The idea is to eliminate stutter in Bethesda games - I use a lot of HD texture packs and it seems like there's a lot of stutter induced by transitioning between in-game "cells" - it takes time for the engine to look for the new resources...

    Disappearing Hard Drives

    Hello, I just upgraded my rig and there's a kink in my storage that I can't seem to work out. I have an Asrock Z97 Extreme6 with the following SATA layout: 0: Boot SSD 3: Extra storage SSD (hooray for dropping prices!) 1: empty 4: 3 GB storage HDD 2: 2 GB RAID1 HDD 5: 2GB RAID1 HDD In case it...

    Best Buy : EVGA 600W 80+ Power Supply $39.99 - In Store / Shipping

    Excellent, thanks! I just upgraded my rig and I wanted to package my older components into a cheap case and cheap/reputable PSU and lend them to a friend who can't afford a PC right now. This fits the bill perfectly.

    Problem setting up RAID in Windows 10

    Thanks! In case anyone digs up this thread with the same issue, the registry tweak in the post I linked to in my OP doesn't work on Windows 10, but it's actually even easier. Just reboot into Safe Boot via Start -> Command Prompt -> msconfig -> "boot" tab, change the BIOS setting to RAID...

    Problem setting up RAID in Windows 10

    Hello, I just simultaneously upgraded my PC (new board and CPU) and also switched to Windows 10. On my previous rig (in my sig), I had a pair of 2 TB drives in RAID1 via the BIOS (not software). Neither of these drives is the boot drive. My new parts are an ASRock z97 Extreme6 and i7 4790k...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    This may have been the most on-target computer advice I've ever received. Thumbs up! I started by bumping my CPU voltage from Auto (~1.2 V - I had played around with it before, couldn't get it stable, and gave up) to 1.35V as Primetime suggested. I was able to boot into Windows with 1603 MHz...
