  1. i couldn't tell you because i have changed my setup but on fractals site it says:'' GPU max length 315 mm with front fan mounted '' so that's 315mm - 38 = 277mm length GPU, but fractal calculates this with the Front fans mounted on the inside but you can mount the fans on the outside as well and that would save you 25mm but you will have to cut the front dust filter web to make it work, if you're willing to do that you can fit a GPU with a length of 302mm. here is a link to a video that shows the cutting part of the dust filter: https://youtu.be/O_DXoIhMdj0?t=348 hopefully this helps you out
  2. if you're asking for stats like that it's important to mention the frequency and voltage being used.
  3. you will never notice if it runs in 8X or 16X. i've been running my card in 8X since i got it and never noticed the slot being in 8X, when i switched to 16X i saw no performance increase. you will be fine
  4. that's an s340 case.. you can't just compare it like that. what GPU do you have btw? IMO in general a top mounted rad is the way to go because having 2 good 140mm fans in the front will help out the GPU temps, yes the GPU will dump it's heat into the case and some of that will go through the top mounted rad. BUT you will see better performance on a cooler GPU than CPU. now for the meshify c you need to do some research for a top mounted 280mm radiator because you will run into clearence issues with some motherboard VRM heatsinks, ram stick etc.
  5. worth it? yes but you should wait for amd's new gen next month.
  6. i have had a x5660 run 4.4ghz at 1.36v for ever and it still works great, i even hammered that thing upto 1.55v to get in the hwbot r15 top10, if you have like a big air cooler (dark rock noctua etc) or a good AIO you can get most of these 6cores xeons around 4,3/4,5 without much work. is it worth? i'd say yes. ps. to the ppl saying these xeons are locked don't know anything about the platform.
  7. what GPU? also a list of specs will help us, to help you out faster.
  8. i have the same setup as you but i'm pushing more voltage through my CPU (8700k) and the VRM's stay below 50, i feel like a 9900k is going to work fine.
  9. there's a few factors that can impact how these companies rate the TDP of these coolers, do they fully heatsoak the cooler and then test the cooling performance? is it based of noise levels based of the fan rpm's etc... so if you're not willing to try a dh15 on a overclocked cpu what else are you going to use? a dh15 is up there with 240/280mm AIO'S other than that you'll have to go custom watercooling. oke so to come back to your question:''So, using an overclocked 7820x(140w+ tdp), would I get better temps with one of the rocks? Or is the 250w tdp a load of marketing nonsense?'' the dh15 and rock4 are probably super close performance wise. is the 250wtdp nonsense? imo it's just another selling point, it's like a GPU brand saying/having the word GAMING in the name and on their box.
  10. like i said above i'm not sure how cool a 2080ti under water would run, i've heard they can run pretty hot. with that said i've seen some posts where people have watercooled their 2080ti's and keep it below 50c. keep in mind that some things will play a part in this. amount of radiators, what case (how good is airflow) what fans, ambient temp is a factor when water cooling for sure.
  11. idk bout as 2080ti but in general if your gpu runs around 70c it will drop to 50c depending on the card and amount of radiators but most cards drop even in to low 40's
  12. agree with golden here, just look up benchmarks. TDP on products aren't really realistic other then it makes them look good.
