    First time custom loop builder

    I've got just about everything except the cpu and sort of gpu. Right this minutes I'm running a Sapphire RX 460 2GB while trying to get this 295x2 sorted. Monitor is a AMH399U 40" 4k. I'm still using a 4690K and plan to upgrade once the freshness of Ryzen wears off and we start seeing sales (so...

    First time custom loop builder

    And I do agree with Bandalo about spending the money to do it right. That's my main thing is doing a custom loop the right way. There are full kits on ebay for like $150 and I'm looking at it like those are probably the cheapest materials and that stuff won't last and will wreck my parts.

    First time custom loop builder

    Case airflow is great. I could still use the stock cooler with it. Screw it I think I'm going to go for it. Worse case I'll sell the second H50 local. I'll see what XFX has to say in the next day or two.

    First time custom loop builder

    My psu is the Lepa (Enermax OEM) G1200 80+ Gold. Been using it for almost two years without issue. Quiet too. I'd love to use the air cooler, just need a working AIO! Would it be crazy to slap two Corsair H50s on it? I already have one that my wife is currently using (and doesn't need).

    First time custom loop builder

    I've been searching on Ebay and what not but haven't been able to find anything that wasn't ridiculously expensive. I'm in contact with XFX right now on solutions(waiting on their response for RMA possibilities but probably out of warranty, but I wanted to get advice on water cooling from those...

    First time custom loop builder

    Thank you. I've got the space for 2x240 with some adjusting in the front of my case. I'll probably need to remove the HDD bay for reservoir placement. So about the fittings and tubing, if I'm understanding correctly you're saying (as an example) to use XSPC fittings if using XSPC tubing for...

    First time custom loop builder

    That doesn't really help as you didn't give any prices or advice on parts.

    First time custom loop builder

    Recently I bought a 2nd hand R9 295x2 that came with a Koolance block and also the stock cooler. I don't have a custom loop but since the seller was including the stock cooler I pulled the trigger. Well, the Asetek AIO leaks so obviously the card isn't running right and it's forcing my hand to...

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Yep! Bought as a holdover until Vega. I'm constantly buying and selling hardware and was using a rx 480 4gb. At 1440p it started struggling so I wanted some more juice.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    I've tried googling to find if there is a replacement AIO but couldn't find anything. If anyone has a link that would be awesome. Or, a beginners guide for building a custom loop. Might as well put that Koolance block to use.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Tried the bottom pci-e slot and the fan didn't go nuts. Open device manager and there are the 2x290. Start loading up drivers. Open Chrome and then the fan goes nuts and drops display. I then noticed liquid on my desk where my case is. Probably about two ounces of coolant. So I unplugged the psu...

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Could bent pins on the motherboard cause an issue with a gpu?

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Sometimes it populates like that while other times it's the generic display adapter.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    I will try when I get home from work in 8 hours. When I shut the pc down the monitor dropped signal but the pc stayed running. Motherboard had code A0 and I had to do a hard shutdown. Now I'm thinking maybe the motherboard may be the culprit.
