  1. I would redo it if it were me, you really don't know how much is being held behind that compression fitting until you take it apart. Every time I've seen that the one side was all the way over the barb and just under the compression collar. Too risky imo
  2. when did you get mod? congrats! 

     

     

    i dont remember you as mod ..

  4. Biostar creates usb riser for mining

    Thread locked as it is a repost (and does not meet TN&R guidelines)
  5. New fractal design case called meshify C

    I like it but the front looks damaged to me. Like "it got left in a pile on the floor and walked on" damaged
  6. Price vs Performance of a GPU when paired with GSYNC

    I would, maybe even Ti if possible (I did). 1440p/144hz is a lot to drive and while you won't always get 144hz, it really is nice to get as close as you can as every fps makes it a little smoother and less blurry. Gsync does help things quite a bit in the lower fps range, it makes the dips much less noticeable but you'll still want as much power as you can afford to get that buttery smooth goodness!
  7. Coolant color ideas

    The premix I got from performance-pcs.com a few months ago is v4, you should be able to email or call them and ask to make sure you'll receive V4. Otherwise you can order straight from Mayhems.co.uk and surely they would have the newest ones available. I've looked at shipping a few times and it's always really close in total price to ppcs.
  8. Coolant color ideas

    They have silver in concentrate and premix. I wouldn't mix it with any other coolants though, dyes would be fine though.
  9. Worth putting liquid metal TIM on GPU

    I've never had issues with it "clogging" anything but the particles do settle anywhere they can, mostly dead spots in the loop and between surfaces like threads of fittings. I've had it last anywhere from a week to 4 months depending on the loop. Its a pain but SO beautiful!
  10. Coolant color ideas

    oh yeah, the loop from my profile pic failed within a week or two like W-L said. I've had other loops since then do a little better but it's been hit and miss for me depending on the loop. I think the best I've gotten was about 4 months but that was a huge loop with some valves and trickery involved. They're up to v4 now, they removed it from the actual title (no more Aurora 2) it's now just noted on the corner of the bottle. I've got some grey aurora but I haven't opened it yet, not sure if I want to go down that road again since I don't think it will fair well in the loop I'm building (too many 90's and fittings) Also, Mick (Mayhems head honcho) said this recently on OCN C'mon V5!
  11. Coolant color ideas

    Indeed! If you're having decent performance from aurora I'd use silver aurora since everything is rgb. If you want to get away from aurora id try something clear or maybe white pastel

    what he said lol
  13. Worth putting liquid metal TIM on GPU

    Definitely don't do it if your cooler or any contact surface is aluminum, the LM will eat right into it. I tried using some on my 980 waterblock (aquacomputer kryographics) and saw basically no difference over something like kyronaut or hydronaut

  15. Darn Good Deal, Am I Missing Something?

    If it is ebay, then the current auction price means nothing at all. Most people will just wait until the end to make a bid so the price will shoot up in the last minutes
