    Recycling barbs from Maze 4

    Before I order 5$ barbs with 20$ of shipping, is it possible to remove the fittings from a Maze 4 GPU block and use them in EK's full cover 8800GTS G1/4 blocks? I'd go ahead and try, but the Maze 4 is still in my old loop that I'm not tearing apart until I'm ready to tear out, clean and build...

    Ottawa/Eastern Ontario, Canada

    There is a distinct lack of LANs in the area, I'm not sure how many members from [H] are in the area, but we definately have the crowd to get something big going. Anyone have any news?

    Cant believe how hard it is to find anything on these forums without the search function.. I've been looking for guides and videos on tearing out WC loops for replacement/etc. Generally, do they recommend running vinegar through the rad then flush it out with distilled water, but keeping...

    I need replacement blocks for 8800GTS and E6600

    As per sig, I'm getting a brand new box and the blocks I currently have for my 7600GT and 3500+ wont be reusable. I've looked around but have been stumped to find a few GTX but not many North-American sold GTS blocks. Unless I'm not looking at the right places, where would I be able to...

    NTLDR, Caused by failed Video Card?

    Apparently today my video card decided to stop on me. When my monitor is unplugged it shows "No connection" and when plugged it just goes black and the power light goes amber. Anyways, after I took out the dead card, I tried booting on my integrated video (for which I'm pretty sure I removed...

    Is this video card dead?

    Today some buddies and I had a little lan before classes start at the end of the week.. After about an hour of Counter-Strike (1.6), my monitor started flickering, going black then the image would stabilize for a minute. After a while, the whole thing just went dead. I was hosting the local...

    Looking for some mobo help

    I bought a refurbished comp last boxing day, and have been upgrading away at it ever since. After putting in the new power supply recently, I realise the biggest problem with my system is the motherboard. Up to then I didnt worry too much about it but it has become such a bottleneck I'm now in...

    Unofficial Post-Your-CRT(s) Thread

    (Couldnt tell you if this was started before, couldnt find anything by search - nor do I know of the interest in a thread like this.) Not everyone uses LCDs, for many reasons. Some prefer the performance of CRTs, some like the 'ghetto-ness' factor, others just dont have the money to shell out...

    OCZ PowerStream 520W good for me?!

    I'm merely moments away from processing the purchase of a OCZ PowerSteam 520W from NCIX Canada, for a mere 116$ + shipping and taxes. Now, I ran an approximate system through the PSU Calculator and it came up that my rig takes 32-33A on the 12V at max load. But I dont feel too good about that...

    Purple bubbles when bleeding

    I just set up my WC kit and it's currently sitting there, bleeding the billions of little bubbles... But, after about 20 minutes, the bubbles at the top of my T-Line started having a purpleish hue to 'em. I had washed the rad and blocks with vinegar and rinced with distilled quite a few...

    Ramsinks on GPU

    When I'll be replacing the fan on my 6600GT with my low profile Maze4, will the use of ramsinks be obligatory? I see everyone on here has them, and I would as well but I just placed my order for my WC package and never was it brought up by the guys at Petra's... Thanks

    Another 1st time WC support thread

    It's amazing how much reading one can do when poking around these forums! Before I get started on descriptions and such, I'll introduce myself - since I'm rather new around here. I'm a 19 yr old canadian student in a networking degree. My computer usage is excessive but not to the point when...
