  1. EK FG Pre Built PC

    The loop cost $360~ (well if you picked the color of the fittings and fluid and wanted RGB fans it would be more roughly ~60 more) with your build it is $2000~ for just parts, when EK charges $2557.82
  2. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    Anandtech is looking into why they are the only review putting Ryzen a head. as far as I see is that Ryzen 2 puts them very close to intel but still just behind. unless you care about 144z+ @ 1080p gaming on a 1080ti then Ryzen will be just fine.
  3. EK FG Pre Built PC

    for 69 more you can put in a 1070. as for pricing it is $500 over part pricing, but you get a fully built system, with a open loop pre installed and tested, plus a 2 year warranty.
  4. Chat is Google's next attempt at messaging on Android

    My phone only connects to T-Mobile or Sprint which are both supported. also when is this going to be implemented?
  5. Chat is Google's next attempt at messaging on Android

    Is this supported by Fi, can I replace Hangouts with this?
  6. EK FG Pre Built PC

    Custom means open loop, this that is what it is. also out of the $500 (its not $600 I forgot a few things) after employee cost, over head, ect EK probable only makes $200 per machine (give or take $100) Most system builder charge around $300 to build a normal system, one that does not require dissemble of GPUs and leak testing.
  7. EK FG Pre Built PC

    Here are a few advantages, Things like colored coolant, fittings and cable mod cables do not cost extra. these also come with RGB fans that the kits normally don't. so in reality it is more like $500 labor fee, and you get the peace of mind of a 2 year warranty.
  8. EK FG Pre Built PC

    I don't think they are that crazy, its $600 for the labor which keep in mind its a custom loop sounds reasonable to me.
  9. EK FG Pre Built PC

    I am making a PC part picker for the middle tier. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Lz8Nq4 $1817.51 + $320 for EK cooling
  10. EK FG Pre Built PC

    EK is now selling Pre Built PC's under the Fluid Gaming brand, with the FG kit pre installed. These looks like some awesome prebuilt PCs. They feature AMD's new Ryzen 2 CPU's, Nvidia 1000s GPU's in a lovely InWin 101 case. UPDATE: I just notice when you go to buy you can customize the config to tailor it better or to save in some areas. https://www.ekfluidgaming.com/fluid-configurator-home https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Lz8Nq4 $1817.51 + $350 for EK cooling = $2137.51 so it cost about $600 more then a PC part picker config, but keep in mind that the system AND loop is built and tested. which I would say $300 for standard build cost + $300 more for custom loop. Here are a few advantages, Things like colored coolant, fittings and cable mod cables do not cost extra. these also come with RGB fans that the kits normally don't. so in reality it is more like $500 labor fee, and you get the peace of mind of a 2 year warranty.
  11. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    200-400Mhz high clocks, way better Turbo boost, 4.3Ghz max OC, no need to OC for the X CPU's, better cache latency, higher FPS in games (10%), all CPUs come with coolers now.
  12. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    Is that as a good thing or bad thing?
  13. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    Someone pointed out that Anandtechs gaming benchmarks for the 8700k is higher in the Ryzen review then the 8700k review. so really why is the Ryzen scores so good?
  14. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    Their appears to be a shit storm in Anandtech comments on the review due to them having test showing the Ryzen chips beating Intel in gaming test, but as far as I can tell they are one of the few that has intel patched 100% for spectrum and meltdown. and x470 already has the AMD spectrum variant 2 patch in firmware. So best gaming CPU with latest security patches is AMD. Anandtech are looking into it. https://www.anandtech.com/show/12625/amd-second-generation-ryzen-7-2700x-2700-ryzen-5-2600x-2600/17
  15. AMD Ryzen 2 Review Mega Thread

    I think so, AMD does not put the non X parts out into the light because they are not the stars of the show.
