  1. I had already marked this as solved, but after further looking in that list, I noted one thing: Looking at these two motherboards they have listed in their compatibility list right next to each other: Prime Z270M-plus and Prime Z370-A on the Z270 they note that the cooler extends over the first PCIe slot. The Z270 has its first x16 slot in the same position as the Z370 has its x4-slot. Since these positions are standardized, doesn't that mean that the D15 would indeed block the x4 slot then on the Z370 too? To my eye, the boards and the CPU socket position looks identical.
  2. Yeah, I did see this chart, but wasn't sure how to interpret an empty comment-field. So you mean that since they do not write any comment, it means there are no issues?
  3. I have the Asus Prime Z370-A motherboard that I currently use with an AIO. But with the launch of the LTT version of the NH-D15 I'm seriously considering switching over to air cooling again. But since I have occupied the very first Pci-E x4 slot with a USB-3 hub-expansion card (i.e. it is between the GPU and the CPU-socket), will this interfere with the NH-D15? I know the NH-D15S would not be an issue, but the regular one? Does anyone know?
  4. Let's say then, what would the next best thing thing be? If we try to get as close as possible? I've been treating on forums and people usually go for Riing, Corsair LL or ML. Is there any truth here, or is it all bling? Currently for my build in a define R6. I want more silence and the case is quite restrictive with its airflow. I also want to watercool, so rads would increase that airflow resistance. I really don't like the look of the Phanteks Halos. Unless I wouldn't paint them myself?.... ... Now there's an idea.... But same question to you; what would be the next best option, and how much of a compromise/sacrifice would there be? I would run the fans at max 1000 rpm anyways perhaps even at 1200 if necessary.
  5. I remembered wrong about the Noctuas; they are rated at 25 db, not 20 (edited orogonal post). But point is, I wanna stay beneath room ambient with a single fan, because having multiple will anyhow push up the noise levels. So you guys have anything for me at around 25 db? Again, should be as close as possible in terms of noise and pressure as NF-A12/A14 fans.
  6. As the title says: I want RGB (preferably; alt just white LED) with highest possible static pressure and preferably sub 20 db ~25 db noise levels for running cooling towers, rads and cases with high air flow restrictions (filters, small openings etc) 120 and 140 mm Or is this an impossible quest to find? Reference fans I'd like to match as much as possible: Noctua NF-A12/A14, but with RGB
  7. I have both Intel + Nvidia and AMD + Nvidia Semi-planning a Amd + Amd, but nothing serious atm....
  8. I just think this build needs a lot more attention. Great inspiration for those that are handy and crafty! I'm at awe looking at this: https://youtu.be/QaoFh1DH51U
  9. Yeah, I meant Wine. Could never remember if it was with W or V for the software. Xp But is it not now meant that WSL2 thanks to getting full kernel support should also support gpu access?
  10. I just stumbled across the news about "Microsoft bringing full Linux Kernel to Windows 10" and from there it was all WSL this, WSL2 that and bashing on windows etc. From what I can understand, this is all to create a non-emulated, non-VM environment within windows where you can run linux commands and full software right? So is this basically then Windows counterpart for Wine on Linux? Or is it even a step further? Because from what I read, it should be easier and better compatibility to run linux stuff in WSL2, than it is to run windows software in Wine. Or have I missed something?
  11. Well.... Question remains the same anyhow, doesn't it? But I admit; watching DC's Legends of Tomorrow is a bit embarassing. Thanks for the reply
  12. Do you guys think a 1050ti will be enough for watching movies with Oculus? I have a "spare" HTPC that doesn't do much at the moment equipped with a 1050ti. I was thinking of moving it to my bed room and just hook up the rift to that one to watch movies/netflix in my bed. In my mind, it should be more than enough. But just wanna double check if anyone here has done this previously. NOTE! I don't care about gaming; 1050ti is obviously not enough for that. I have my main rig with 1080ti for that task. All I care about here is for movie watching.
  13. I can't believe there are still arguments about this topic on a TECH ENTHUSIAST FORUM. If it was "Bob's casual family forum" with a small sub-section for tech, then I would understand. In this world of Ultra-wides, normal aspect ratios (16:9) and pretty much anything in between, we really ought to forget about the utterly confusing K-standard, which was developed for the tv/movie industry anyways. K-standard describes HORIZONTAL resolution. The XXXXp standard describes the VERTICAL resolution. The latter is much better to use, as that resolution stays fixed, and then you just look at the aspect ratio. 1080p 16:10, 16:9, 21:9 are all 1080p. But they are not all 2K. 16:10 and 16:9 would be considered 2K. But a 1080p 21:9 is 2.5K, as you have 2560x1080 pixels. Same horizontal pixel count as a 1440p 16:9 monitor. The essential issue with the K-standard, is that it actually demands a 16:9 aspect ratio (or actually a bit wider, closer to 17:9). So those ppl who ask for 4K ultrawide panels will never have it. You either have a 2160p vertical height in 21:9, which is a 5K panel, because 5120 pixels in the horizontal resolution, or you have 3860 pixels horizontally (4K), but only 1440p vertically. Summary: K is horizontal resolution P is vertical resolution All is then depending on aspect ratio! @dalekphalm @leadeater, thank you for trying to clear this thing up! On-topic: If this raytracing can be done with non-dedicated hardware, nvidia is really up for some big controversies again. However the basic need for ray tracing process is not something new, so I would still imagine that there is a huge demand for stronger hardware anyways, even if this is shown off with a Vega 56.
  14. In all reality, there is nothing that hinders a computer from being on the floor, animals or not - especially if you don't use any bottom intakes. The only difference is how often you have to clean it from dust. And with a properly filtered case and positive pressure it is all pretty easy. I had a massive dust accumulation in the front filter of my R6 now a few weeks back. It was nasty! But that was because I did not clean the dust in a while. But the thing was; inside the PC, there was almost nothing. A little bit between the exhaust fan and the top radiator; I expected a carpet of dust, but nothing. That all said, it is obviously preferable to have it on the desk for lesser dust accumulation.
  15. That carpet in your video doesn't look that bad. I believe you could do it. You could also put two small pieces of wood beneath the feet to raise the computer up a bit, or just a thin plywood board beneath the whole computer ontop of the carpet. Won't look super sexy, but would do the trick. Another option would be to just flip the PSU to take air from inside the case, and thus have no bottom air-intake at all. Third option: Remove the carpet.
