I understand that nickel is plating over copper.
However, internet consensus and EK's own warranty states that putting silver in a loop with nickel will strip the plating. And they recommend using a coolant - not distilled water - for long life. Internet consensus supports this, as i've seen...
Hey folks, I have an idea here, tell me if i'm being to paranoid.
I currently have a Dangerden monsoon reservoir with a silver plug in it, and all copper blocks, running distilled water.
I'm looking at current production watercooling stuff, and most of it seems to be nickel and pure copper...
Nidec Gentle Typhoons or Noctua A12's
The GT's are super quiet for how fast they are, and the A12's are based on GT's but with a bunch of improvements like custom plastic, notched wings, etc.
Ball bearings FTW
BFG didn't go under due to their sweet warranty and support. They went under because Best Buy, which made for something like 80% of their sales just dropped them out of nowhere. They even said it themselves in an interview when it happened.
I have an odd issue thats been popping up. I've had my e5649 running solid at 3.8ghz for a few years, but over the past 12 months or so i cant overclock it all. I tried for a tiny overclock of 150 bclk and locking the core voltage at 1.25v, it corrupts windows when i try to boot. Takes a solid...
I have myself a pickle here. I've been using masterkleer clear 7/16" ID 5/8 OD" tubing, friction fit over DD fatboy 1/2" barbs for years now and I want to rebuild.
Problem is that nobody carries this tubing in clear anymore. I want to use this tubing as its worked fantastically...
I'm late to the party.
I have an e5649 on stock clock, R9-290 @ 1140mhz core (stock is 947), both under water with an alphacool nexxos UT-60 360mm with scythe-ap-15s and i run an average of 58C on the GPU. It mines 24/7, when the GPU goes above 60C, the room its in is SWEATY hot. Water...
I'm using Monsoon MM-1000 speakers (lol vintage) and switching between my motherboard and my auzentech gives an audible difference.
The biggest difference however, is that the sound card produces higher volumes
Other changes include slightly less compression, slightly less background...
How does it perform temperature wise? I have a similar setup in a dangerden case with a single 290, 5649, and a single alphacool 360mm rad. I'm just probing whether or not a second card would be accessible to me with my rad.
Also, love the 40k chaos theme. Your paint skills and colour selection...
x58 doesn't handle ram overclocking well. Focus on overclocking the cpu and keeping it stable.
The only reason you should need high clock ram is if your base clock is so high that it drives the ram frequency up through the low multiplier.
Other than that, get a trio of 8 gig sticks. You'll...
Lowest friction I've EVER felt. Doesn't need aggressive cleaning either.
From what I've owned, from most slippy to least slippy: Func > C4ngen04 > Steelseries SX > Corel draw 1993 > Steelseries QCK
Dude. The label claiming 1600mhz c9 is the overclocked tested rating and the installed XMP profile. NOT THE PLUG AND PLAY FUNCTIONALITY. Only Crucial and Kingston have plug and play functionality like what you're describing.
Its been like this ever since Nehalem came out. 6 years now by my...
I have a case where my bay reservoir interferes with my current 22mm vandal switch. Even with the prongs bent to the side, it still sticks about 1/4 inch out the top of the case.
Anybody know of shorter ones? Or should I just cut a new hole?
Heres my dilemma. I have about 10.55 inches between my case backpanel, and my intake radiator. My GTX480, stock, fits in just fine.
I want to get a 290x and put the razor on it, but I'm afraid it wont fit because measurements of the cards are all over the map on the internet.
