Price drop! 465 shipped (Ground only, US. Anything else and we can deal.)! Boxed up and ready to go, I can get this thing sent out same/next day.
How old is it?
This is from the launch in Sept '14, so its a bit over a year old. Not a single issue in all that time.
This is a great panel in excellent shape. No stuck or dead pixels, smooth uniform backlight. Silky smooth 144fps with gsync, great color from a full 8-bit panel... honestly you all know what this monitor is.
Lightly used, the entire monitor is in excellent shape. Comes with the power brick...
For sale: i7 2600K with original retail packaging and unused intel HSF.
Good overclocker, ran at 4.6Ghz with 1.35v on water, never higher. No need to push it too hard because its so fast. Stepping SR00C (if that matters).
Asking $225 shipped to US.
No, any sort of paste wont work. there is a very large gap between the heat sink and the memory. I've probably got a dozen tubes of AS5 laying around, the problem is I need something thick between them.
I put my 8800GTX on a full cover waterblock a while ago, but now I have to use the air cooler again while I rebuild my water loops in a new case.
The thermal tape on the stock cooler fell apart when I pulled it off, and I can't find anything even close to the thickness that they used on...
I had blocks on my nb/sb and had to pull them off and put the fan back on while I'm redoing my loops. That tiny fan is easily the loudest thing in my whole setup and its extremely annoying. I disconnected the fan and I'm running it passive for the time being. It seems to be ok for now, mainly...
Haha, wow. I'm never using AC fluid again.
I've got 2 bottles of FluidXP Extreme coming, along with 20 feet of the UV blue hose from Jab-tech that will work with my 3/8" barb system. We'll see how well that works (after I blast all the junk out of my big-ass radiator, that is)
I'm not sure what I'm going to do at this point. I just finished cleaning the hell out of all the parts. I'm going to try running FluidXP, and possibly look into remachining those stainless steel parts with some sort of acrylic; that would at least take the 3rd metal out of the loop.
Haha, no, I'm not doing that. My radiator is pretty easy to clean once its out, since its 2 pieces.
When I first popped it open, it was in a lot better condition than I thought it would be.
You can still see the sludge buildup in the channels, especially on the corner. Its kind of cool...
Here's what's left of my bottle after doing both loops (about 1 liter combined) and one loop a second time:
I did have a ton of blue motion in there however. It didn't seem to glow very much even under blacklight, so I kept adding it.
I'm going to try white vinegar and maybe listerene...
Shoggy: The goop in the block looked very similar to that. Mine wasn't that bad, but I bet it would have been if I had let it go any longer. This loop was only running for 2 MONTHS!
Are you saying I should avoid the AC fluid? I have a bottle of similar stuff from Innovatek that would probably...
the material in the center should be flush with the clear top, so even without a gasket hardly any water is going to get in there. I don't know why D-Den went with a center gasket, maybe to keep water from sitting in the center and corroding?
And yeah, imagesocket is horribly slow, I'm...
