  1. Unfortunately my mobo is a z97 board and doesn't have any rgb headers. I bought the EK loop connect controller.
  2. So I plug the pump header into this and then into the 3 pin controller?
  3. Hi everyone. Wasn't sure where exactly to put this so sorry if it's in the wrong place. I have a res with 4 pin rgb cable and an rgb controller with only 3 pin rgb headers on it. Obviously the res's rgb didn't work when I plugged it in to the controller. Is there anything I can do to make this work? I didn't know anything about rgb when I planned this. Thanks for the help!
  4. Ok great! Glad I can still use it. Thank you all so much for the information, I really appreciate it!!
  5. Can anyone else help out with this? Am I good to use this block or will it damage my other components?
  6. Ok great. One last question for ya. Will those nickel flakes cause issues for my pump and cpu block other than accumulating in the fins?
  7. So will this be a big problem going forward? Or should I be good as long as I use a good coolant?
  8. Hi everyone. Just got this EKWB on Ebay. I have a Gigabyte 980 ti G1 gaming gpu so this was my only option as they don't sell these new obviously. I opened the water block and saw this. Is this anything to be concerned about? Can I clean it? Any info would be very helpful. This ia my first custom loop. Thanks!
  9. Hey guys, I have an N64 that's connected to my TV with the original composite cables. I had the urge to go back and play some of those games with my dad and I was curious if I could improve the video quality at all. After looking at some comparisons between composite and the other options like S-video and the UltraHDMI mod, I honestly don't see a huge difference. Does anyone have experience with these "improvements"? Do they really make that big of a difference? I'm thinking of either going s-video with an external scaler or getting it modded. Thanks so much guys!
  10. Yeah take a look at the video quality of those stock cables. It sucks!!! haha Never realized how much it sucked until now.
  11. I mean it's not as sentimental. I'd rather play on the Gamecube.
  12. Yeah the system itself isn't the problem, it's the damn cable that enables you to take advantage of that port that's hard to find. It costs about 200 bucks on ebay.
  13. Awesome. Yeah I put that game in just to see how it's held up over the years and I was like, "I used to think this game looked awesome! Now it looks like shit." But thankfully it was just because of those damn cables. I'm going to go look around at some thrift stores to see if I can find one of the component cables. I think there's a chance that someone just gave them away because they didn't know what they had. If I have no luck, I'm going to go with the S-video. Thanks for all your help! I really appreciate it!
  14. Thanks! I think i watched one of these. Question: does the type of S video cable that you use make a difference in the video quality? I've heard that some S video cables actually look similar to composite.
  15. Wow thanks for this! Now here's a question: If I have an HDTV, will the S video still look that much better than composite?
