    S2000Gan got a reaction from amvoith in Downsizing my Watercooled NCase M1 to the Dan Case A4-SFX   
    This is an awesome build! 
    Im getting a Dan case soon 
    I managed to get a 4670K and Asrock Z87E-ITX for $100 and had 2x8GB DDR3 1600 and a GTX 780 laying around.
    Already bought a SF450 Platinum, 1TB msata 850 EVO, and NH-L9i.

    S2000Gan got a reaction from G0rg3us_fr33man in System Update: Watercooling! "Project R"   
    Hello again everyone. 
    I recently got some parts to build my first watercooling loop!
    Unfortunately, my Lian Li Lancool K63 is not really designed to mount much other than 140mm fans...
    So I picked up a new Fractal Design Define R6.
    My plan is to keep my Black/Red build but now It'll be in a white case! 

    Why the switch to a white case? I'm going for a "Type R" styled theme.
    Once I get the system built and running I plan on picking up a Red Honda badge and a Type R badge for fun and putting those in there somewhere. After seeing some pictures of systems in white cases I've decided I'm going to avoid putting a bunch of red LED stuff in the computer because I'm not a big fan of how all the white surfaces reflect the red light into kind of a pink-ish-ness. Instead I'll be sticking with the white LEDs in the reservoir and CPU waterblock and potentially adding a white LED strip if I think it needs more lighting.
    I'll probably keep the green GEFORCE GTX on for fun, although we will see how the LEDs on the Ballistix Tactical Tracer RAM look and whether or not I end up having those LEDs on since they can only be Green or Red on the ones I have.

    I'm still running my 2500K although I'm interested in seeing if the water cooling (especially on the VRM) helps my temps enough to lower the voltages I use for my current overclock. I'll probably end up taking this whole computer apart and replacing the current platform if the 9900K and 9700K really end up being 8 core CPUs (which kinda of makes the Gene-Z VRM waterblock seem like a waste, but hey I got it on clearance for really cheap. Also while I love the GTX 770 I have (Thanks EVGA for making a Titan cooler version at the community's request!), I am probably going to upgrade it when the 1180 finally releases (possibly a Hydro Copper version? Or if not at least a Hybrid?)

    For now it's just soft tubing although I would like to do rigid tubing at some point. I've bent PETG before (Thanks to BS Mods for coming to LTX 2017 and 2018) so its really just a matter of building up enough funds to spend on all the stuff I need for that. Probably wont happen for a while. Priority is saving up money to upgrade the platform (CPU/Board/RAM) and graphics card.

    Anyway, here are some pics of my system in my old case, and what it looks like at the moment!

    Some good information here:

    In summary single loop is better and has more advantages than dual loop

    Kryonaught normally performs about 4°ish worse than LM, so you're still looking at around a 15C improvement.  That said, I've had an 8600K at 5.1GHz with a Noctua air cooler and stock TIM so with a custom loop you can probably skip delidding and just go for it stock.

    Looks like its working now! Thanks!
     
    I wonder how many people who posted in here have actually tried IE11, specifically on a touchscreen.
    Chrome doesn't have forward back page swiping or pinch zoom.
    It has pinch zoom on the touchpad but not on the touchscreen.
    My main complaints with IE are things that most people probably wouldn't even notice, user interface efficiency things.

    IE is not better or worse than FF or Chrome. I use them all. They all have features I like and features I dislike.

    Hey there everyone!
    Finally got around to making an account on here and figured I'd put a few pictures of my desktop up.
    Unfortunately these pictures are a little old for a number of reasons.
    My computer needs to be cleaned, It's not that bad but still dustier than I would like especially for photos.
    Also, I don't have a great camera, and I'm not any good at photography.

    Regardless, here are some of the pictures I have taken.
     
    CPU: Intel 2500k @ 5GHz
    MoBo: Asus ROG Maximus IV Gene-Z
    RAM: 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz
    GPU: EVGA 560 TI DS
    PSU: Corsair 650HX
