  1. Until I just read that I had completely accepted that they would just thermal throttle and not that they would only run at pcie 3.0 speeds... I think it's time for me to go to bed.
  2. Just to put in my two cents as someone with a clc tr4 build, the only time I've ever had a leak in any of my clc builds had been when I cross threaded a fitting into an ek acrylic block but I immediately felt the cross threading and I decided to try it out anyways after threading it correctly. Long story short I ended up getting a copper/nickle block top and I've never had any issues in this department since with soft tubing.
  3. Decided to go big or go home. Brought my girlfriend along so I built a micro atx Threadripper 1900x system with 32GB of ddr4 that I split into two gaming vm's using Unraid. My half of the system gets an rtx 2080 and her half gets an rx 480.
  4. Yeah you are really close to a 7700K which should even be better in games for you.
  5. Yes because it will turbo higher than usual since you're allowing it to not power throttle as much.
  6. That has about summed up my experience as well. With my G7 I never had usb power delivery issues but I also didn't observe a large temperature difference since the G7 was just taking that extra thermal headroom and boosting to the limits of that default voltage curves power limit. What I have come to respect in the months since then is that Rise of The Tomb Raider is brutal on hardware and incredibly good at finding weaknesses in overclocks. On my desktop I have been able to play every other game I own for hours and hours on end with a gpu overclock on a 2080 at +160Mhz but the moment I try to play ROTTR I have to drop the clock back to +140 otherwise it crashes every time. Does the same for cpu overclocks though for memory I find cinebench does a fine job for generally finding really bad overclocks and timings.
  7. Honestly you'd probably still be fine going with something like Noctua's U12. The d15 will perform better and be quieter tho. Saving money with a Coolermaster hyper 212 silence which is black and pretty quiet and is quite a bit cheaper.
  8. I'd honestly follow @LukeSavenije 's advice on part selection. You're going to be getting a lot of benefit from dropping down to a 2700 instead of the x variant and then opting for a Radeon VII or rtx 2080. Also of note is that nzxt's h500 sucks for airflow which will impact your gpu in your case pretty harshly. His system layout for you is much more balanced. If unfortunately you have already bought your case then you're going to want to use nzxt if you already have some of their rgb stuff. Otherwise corsair is better.

  9. The virtual machine wont even boot. This is not a windows environment.
  10. Alright so for background, for LTX my girlfriend wanted to go with me but she doesn't want her own gaming computer because she lives in a dorm and is lame. So i decided that I would sell my mini itx gaming machine and build a micro atx virtualized gaming machine instead. So what I'm rocking right now is a Threadripper 1900x on an Asrock X399m Taichi motherboard with 4 dimms totaling 32 Gb of ram. Where I've been running into problems is with my graphics cards. I have an rtx 2080 and a 4gb rx 480. I have so far been able to get my rx 480 to boot absolutely fine into a virtualized instance of Windows 10 using Limetech's Unraid. Where I run into problems is with Nvidia's usb controller built into their higher end cards for their virtual reality link. It kept throwing up errors at me about it not being able to separate it from the rest of the card even though I would be selecting it to add with the card. I gave up and decided to ask a friend if I could just borrow one of their rx 480's instead for the trip and temporarily trade him my rtx 2080. I have not however tried ACS override in Unraid though because somehow I missed that. I have also heard that you have to add and edited nvidia vbios if you want to use it as your main graphics output for Unraid and that there is some trickery involving making the driver not think it's virtualized. I have also heard that amd cards work fine out of the box for both of these. Since my system is entirely custom liquid cooled except for the rx 480, would it be better to just use the rx 480 as my first gpu and put the 2080 in another slot or will it be the same level of difficulty? Or am I better off just temporarily changing my loop and using two rx 480's instead?
  11. I use mayhem pastel white and I only have my computer on for about 6 hours a day and sometimes I wont turn it on for a few days and it's fine. But for extended vacations I give my computer to my friend and just tell him to turn it on for a bit every day. When I had ek clear cryofuel I never really had to worry about anything since there was nothing to keep suspended in the liquid. If you have a clear fluid then you pretty much don't have to worry about anything except yearly or so maintenance.
  12. As mentioned above just lay your computer so that the block is parallel with the floor and the fittings come straight up then it should fill the entire block. It's not meant to have a ton of flow up there so it wont fill up by itself since the air is working against you there.
  13. Nope. Corsair has their own proprietary system, nzxt has theirs, and then thermaltake has their own also separate one.
  14. Along with the thermal paste replacement mentioned above, might I point you in the direction of undervolting. Here's a thread with a few people with 8750h cpus that have tried undervolting
  15. Based on the picture of the rev 2 it looks like the picture it looks like EK is showing pictures of the v1 on their website then... The v2 looks kind of like the spc60 pump res combo I have but that doesn't have the g1/4 port on the top. Do you know if they discontinued the v2 or something? Or have it rebranded under vector or something stupid? You would hope people would get better over time with articulating their product design but .
