    Old School Thermalright Silver Arrow for Ryzen 9 3900x over the stock cooler?

    As part of my computer reconfiguration that is ongoing, I will be moving my old Core i7 2700k to my wife's computer case which will not be able to accommodate the Silver Arrow that is currently attached to the 2700k. I'm building a server out in the Coolermaster ATCS 840 where the 2700k and...

    I spent last evening draining/flushing my loop after leak testing with distilled water with primochill sysprep before putting koolance coolant in.

    I have all the parts in hand, EK distro plate for PC-O11 Dynamic, EX Velocity Block, Corsair (HW Labs) radiator, Bitspower fittings, EK ZMT 3/8 ID 5/8 OD tubing, etc. I've been reading up on what needs to be done to prep the radiator and it appears things are all over the place. Some people...

    Sell my 3900x or use it in a server

    So, I have a 3900x sitting here collecting dust. I replaced it with a 3950x. I plan on building a server in the not too distant future that will be a jack of all trades, backups, security camera DVR, Plex, etc. I've already got all the components needed except motherboard, CPU, and RAM...

    Binning my 2 3900x chips

    I've actually purchased a second 3900x and I hope to bin it tomorrow. I've had the first chip running since August, but haven't had a ton of time to mess with it. The time I have had has been a bit frustrating, so I decided to pick up a second chip. Here is what I've done so far on the first...

    Seasonic Prime Gold 850, Seasonic Focus Pro 850 Gold, or Corsair H850

    Trying to narrow down what I'm going to use for my build. I'm going to have a 3900x, 32 GB of RAM, 1080Ti, one M.2 Drive, one Sata Drive, one HDD, a 240 or 360 AIO for the CPU and a 240 AIO on a Kraken bracket for the GPU, and a bunch of fans. Seasonic's calculator shows me being right on the...

    Which GPU Cooler? Kraken G12 + H55, Arctic AcceleroIII/IV, or Rajintek Morpheus II

    Title says it. I'very been pretty dead set on replacing the cooler on my EVGA 1080ti SC Black with. Kraken G12 and an H55. I would shim it so that I could leave the stock top plate and back plate intact. However, I have seen that you can keep the VRMS plenty cool with just a fan. In due...

    I just picked up a 1080Ti and now I want some 1440p G-sync goodness. Newegg has the Acer Predator XB271HU for $499 on backorder. Should I go for it? I was looking to stick in the $500 range and this seems like a great deal to me. I haven't done a ton of research yet, but I know that's a good...
