    AIO Closed Loop vs Custom Open loop..

    Wrong. Don't take my word for it. https://youtu.be/SnMeoV95TM0?t=171 http://www.cpcworldwide.com/productlist.aspx?Series=23 You're still missing the point. I merely suggested to the OP this product, given he might want to add a GPU loop. Let me simplify it more for you. The...

    AIO Closed Loop vs Custom Open loop..

    Anything you buy today is irrelevant 5 years from now - poor argument. A comparative EK custom CPU only loop would run around $250 - same price. The XP version with an EVO and XE would be $390 - maybe a couple degrees difference. I did custom before the first AIOs came out and I've been...

    That's because it's listed as MB/s, not Gbps.

    AIO Closed Loop vs Custom Open loop..

    That's a 240, not a 360. :rolleyes: Let's be realistic. I've owned a Corsair. It did fine, but the 360 meets or beats any other AIO in temps and noise levels, and to add insult to everything else, it can do it with a GPU added in with medical grade QDCs and overall better quality parts...

    AIO Closed Loop vs Custom Open loop..

    I can vouche for the EK Predator systems. They have the quality and upgradability of their custom systems, but the simplicity and maintenance free operation of an AIO. They have a powerful pump, copper rad, large flow tubing, and awesome blocks. And if you spring for the 360 version with the...

    Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower Chassis Review @ [H]

    Why do so many people "need" an internal 5.25" OD? You can buy an external one for like $40. It's almost 2016!

    Samsung 950 PRO [Official Thread]

    I have a slight hesitation during the BIOS load, but I suspect the drivers are just immature. Otherwise, it's a very zippy drive. Going to sell my 840 EVO and some of my old parts to make up the $ for buying another one of these for a RAID0 :D 3k MB/s Read/3k MB/s Write Yum!

    Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower Chassis Review @ [H]

    IKR? I used many of those high end Lian Li and Silverstone cases. The GPU block? Are they out already? Been waiting....will have to snatch one up for my 980Ti. Wish they had a prefilled monoblock for my motherboard. I know they do, but not prefilled. Next step is to install a couple 3mm...

    Case for New Build - Recommendations?

    I can vouch for the Phanteks EVOLV ATX as well. I have big hands like you and for the most part have owned full towers in the last 20+ years of building PCs. I've mostly used higher end aluminum cases like Lian Li, Silverstone, and my last case was a Corsair 800D (still have it, but will put...

    Samsung 950PRO, when?

    Yes, this version correctly identifies Windows 10 and lets you enter RAPID Mode, which is nice since I had to load 4.4, then upgrade over it with 4.7.

    Do close looped coolers ever leak

    For what it's worth, my "old" Corsair H100 (1st generation) AIO served me well, cooled better than most air coolers and I never had a failure or leak in the last 4 years. I upgraded to the EK Predator 360 with this new build because I feared it wouldn't last much longer and the EK can be...

    Samsung 950PRO, when?

    My 512GB is on the way - due Thurs. Glad I didn't pull the trigger when I posted the "in stock" post. $30 promo card (going to be used for the next 950 Pro for RAID down the road) and a AC game weren't available when I posted. For those worried, it should ship with Windows 7 drivers, or you...

    EK-XLC Predator 360 fitment

    Yeah I actually submitted a form online to let them know about the compatibility of this new case. They have a little flyer inside the 360 box asking to submit case compatibility, so I did, and what they replied was correct. Gotta remove the rear fan. Surprised they said yes the first time lol.

    EKWB Predator 240 AIO CPU Cooler

    No I haven't messed with the lid. I reckon I don't have to :D I got a pretty good lottery pick from my Micro Center. I can hit 5.0+ Ghz just by Gameboost OC, but I'm pushing over 1.4v, so for everyday, 4.8GHz at 1.375v is fine. I'll fine tune it some more this weekend and see what I can get...

    Time Warner Cable Plans For TV On The Internet

    I'd be willing to try it if it comes to KC. I'm using their 300Mbps internet service along with DISH until Google Fiber gets to my area, but I believe (prays) Google will get to me first by Q1 of next year.

    EK-XLC Predator 360 fitment

    You/I could mod it to fit up top. It's pretty close to a fit, but honestly it works great in the front. The Vardar fans put out more than enough positive pressure and airflow that it seems optimal there anyway. I put the 2 front Phantek fans up top for exhaust. It looks cleaner and more...

    EK-XLC Predator 360 fitment

    Front mount here too. If you're not dead set on the EK 360 Predator, you could fit a 360 rad up top. The extra length comes from the pump/res on the end, making it longer. I like this position since you don't want vibration of any kind on the block, like most other AIOs. However, the QDC...

    EVGA P2 or Corsair HXi

    I also went from a Corsair HX1000 to an EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2. My Corsair didn't fail, but after 4 years, I feared it might in my new build sooner than later. So while I was at my local Micro Center, I bought the EVGA on sale. The 10 year warranty and Jonnyguru's high recommendation made my...

    EKWB Predator 240 AIO CPU Cooler

    I have the 360 version installed in the same case as Fixall and I've tested 24C idle and 60C max on my 4.8 Ghz OC, so pretty damn nice! I've only had it running just barely over 24 hrs, so between break-in time plus some minor adjustments down on voltage (now at 1.375), the max could go a few...

    For those awaiting the Phantek Evolv from Amazon

    The only complaint from Phanteks I have right now is the black powder coat on the optional HDD bracket I bought from Amazon. Otherwise, my case came flawless. Since I won't see the white on the HDD, it doesn't bother me, but could still be improved.

    For those awaiting the Phantek Evolv from Amazon

    No problems here on my case. It was a pain in the ass to reverse the EK 360 Predator fans for intake flow, but got everything working tonight. 24C idle, 48C load on stock clock/turbo. The case looks and functions great. The bottom is a little cluttered with my 2TB WD HHD and my EVGA 1200 P2...

    MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION Review @ [H]

    I totally agree Dan. I've been a very loyal customer to ASUS, with a few exceptions over the last 20 years, even buying their monitors and thinking about buying one of their 1900 or 2400 series routers, but I was desiring something different from ASUS this generation. The Hero didn't appeal...
