  1. lol why did they ban this niggy 

  2. Whats wrong with Home Depot tubing?

    It has to be plasticiser free or it will leech and clog up your system. Nothing stopping you using copper tubing though.
  3. Reading all these replies make me wish I avoided this thread... or even this forum as a whole.
  4. Flow reversal

    Actually there is an issue, the block only flows one way and eventually your temps will go up and up and up until thermal shut down. Swap them around like they're supposed to be. EK tells you to plumb the flow in a certain way for a reason and their R&D have spent a lot of money on telling you how to do it correctly. 53c is way too hot for a watercooled loop, my gf ran her loop for 12 hours with her pump off because I hadn't plugged the pump cable back in after transporting it between homes. You've spent loads of money on watercooling, do it properly or let all that pressure and heat build up and see what happens... That's because it's true...
  5. My gf has a 6600k and it runs minecraft at a very solid 60fps with mods. You'll be fine.
  6. Help overclocking (AMD)

    Replied to your PM.
  7. Help overclocking (AMD)

    I haven't overclocked a 6300 manually but when you use 4 dimms on an FX chip the IMC gets hammered hard so increasing your voltages on the CPU-NB will help a lot.
  8. Help overclocking (AMD)

    CPU-NB and NB voltage.
  9. Help overclocking (AMD)

    You need to up the voltage on your CPU-NB and increase the CPU-NB clock a bit IIRC. That motherboard isn't the best either so watch all your temps.
  10. Gigabyte AMD 970 Motherboard

    Lmfao don't be a sour puss, and my card isn't your average 970, it's a few points off being the fastest on the forum. Is there anything else you need to say for my amusement or are you pretty much out of salt? So cute!
  11. Explain Watercooling as Noobily as possible.

    Someone else took a shot at it lately, although it was purely concept. Deepcool I think it was? Anyway, soon... sooon lol
  12. I love being called a fanboy because I'm not an intel worshiper, Intel are better yes but only slightly, deal with it.valley-3113.PNG5.2ghz-970.png

      well.. valley is old xD

       

      beyond that, 7zip screenshots plez, i wanna see how it stacks up against my 4790k, and the "stock" 9590 someone tested for me.

      When I got my 9370, back at launch, Intel's line did cost more.  In most of my tasks I've seen no large difference between the 4790k and the 9370, at nearly the same clocks.  Finally managed to stabilize the 4790k at 4.6 while the 9370 was capable of around 4.8/4.9ish depending on the time of the year.  Anyways, I've seen improvement in one area for me.   That's when I edit music and videos in different applications.  But, in everything else I do I have seen no big difference between the two.  Lastly, given the price difference at the time of when I got my 9370, I was satisfied with it.  However, I did need the 4790k's better single thread performance for my band.  I do miss it, but it belongs to a friend now.

      I'm not bothered at how fast it can unzip files, and I've got a 9590 coming from the US so I don't have to deal with the heat of the 8350 at 5ghz anymore. 

  13. Love you Prysin!!! <3

  14. Explain Watercooling as Noobily as possible.

    Don't you just wish you could watercool you PSU to get rid of that last bit of noise? Lmao, I'll never go back to air cooling, too much noise and very inefficient.

    Not really, I have an intel rig, but I'm still waiting for it to blow my socks off with this amazing performance everyone speaks of? 5 extra fps in games really isn't a huge leap in performance tbh. I'm not biased btw I just speak the truth, the UD3P will shit itself so will the ASRock, the asus is the best board. The truth hurts Prysin but then again you've a lot to learn. Recommending a sub par product when the asus is the best bang for the buck is just silly is it not? I'm pretty sure you've said that to me a few times... Ironically. The amount of VRM isn't worth jack shit if the quality of the component is shit like ASRock love to do.
