    Wiring new house

    jerry8169 Ditto on the chase/conduit from where cable/FIOS etc comes in the house (typically garage) to patch panel or main distribution point. Highly recommended for future proofing. Also take a good look at the blueprints to determine choke points where running a future cable may be next to...

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    The guy who created Thermal Bench is a staff writer now at TechPoweUp. I was sad for myself and happy for him at the same time. Sad fact is there is not enough money in the review business when you tell the whole truth and people don't contribute enough for a guy to make a living even if the...

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    Ahh info we can use thanks, so maybe my data is old in comparison and I may not be on top of things like I once was but, I feel like you are missing the point of my post for a few degrees of difference I'd rather have the multi ports or better yet the 45mm 1080 not listed/tested in your link...

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    I'm excited to see the 60mm thick 1080 rad and if I still had my Phanteks Primo case the updated monsta would do the same. If you have used a monsta in push pull config you would understand why. There is nothing more effective and efficient on the market of course it can be quit loud in it's...

    Favorite utility to stress test 5900X for load temps?

    I use Aida 64 Extreme System Stability Test to load CPU, FPU, Cache, Memory, and GPU all at once. Of course this is after the CPU, Memory and GPU have been overclocked and tested separately for stability. Prime is perfect for a CPU because it indicates what the errors are based on the test it...

    dead sound card?

    Try a different PCI slot, any will do, from 16x to 4x, if windows doesn't recognize then it's likely dead.

    Should I mod my case for vertical GPU mount?

    I could populate any of the expansion slots not in use but only have the GPU and Sound Blaster Z (hence the red glow below the vertical mount) (last pic) installed in both builds.

    Should I mod my case for vertical GPU mount?

    I assume you mean the PCIe extension cable, if so, nearly no bend at all. Note the 1st image above. final shape is like a not quite formed "S"

    Should I mod my case for vertical GPU mount?

    I assume you are asking me please ignore if not

    Should I mod my case for vertical GPU mount?

    Worked for me in a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe (original) Case twice. The nice part separating it from most risers is that I can still use other motherboard expansion slots like my SoundBlaster audio card 1st Luxe with build log pics 2nd Luxe

    AIO and Oil

    Mineral was and still is used to totally submerge an entire system which is/was fully operational see https://www.pugetsystems.com/submerged.php but I don't recall it being all that wonderful especially after heat transfer occurs. It was never intended as a loop coolant fulid.

    What ram stability test are you running these days?

    I graduated from Memtest86 about 10 years ago when I had trouble with memory in windows that had been test fine with memtest86. I started looking for an app that would test it from within windows to avoid this. I had used Memtest86 for 10 or more years prior spending hours upon hours with it as...
