  1. Gym's for getting wide like Ben Swolo 😏🏋️‍♀️🏋️


  2. Re-read what you said earlier: Do you see the ridicule you tossed there? Plus, I didn't dismiss your arguments entirely. I just said it makes you less credible. Any evidence can come to a true conclusion, even if the premise contains a fallacy. However should one trust the person 100%? That's a rather lofty accusation you're making there. If I was like that I wouldn't be responding to you right now. The only contribution I would say is that both Elon and the other guy should have kept their damn mouths shut, kept those thoughts to themselves, and none of this would happen. Not much of a contribution, but it's something.
  3. You two played both the Appeal to Ridicule and ad hominem cards. What good is it to have a civil and rational discussion if this is called "civil"? Trying to use logical fallacies to make yourselves look "credible" does the exact opposite in my eyes: it makes you all less credible, therefore I have no reason to take you guys seriously, even if what you present is worth consideration.
  4. Good Graphics Card for AMD A10 5800K

    I would probably just look at a used graphics card instead of a current-gen ones, since the current-gen cards are pretty damn fast, and will be bottlenecked by that A10-5800K there. I would further add that Assassin's Creed Origins and Ghost Recon Wildlands (both use the AnvilNext 2.0 engine) are multi-threaded (for my i7-5930K, I've seen all 12 threads being actively used, and has spiked up to 80% utilization at 1440p). As for Battlefield, I only have BF4, not BF1, so the engines are different versions of Frostbite 3 (BF1 most notably has HDR and DirectX 12 support, whereas BF4 only has SDR and DirectX 11), and can't be directly compared.
  5. i7-6700k Overclocking voltage

    I overclocked my brother's i7-6700K to 4.6 GHz using 1.39V VCore (4.7 was my target, but alas it's not stable, even with 1.425V VCore). CPU is liquid-cooled via a custom loop, and package temperature rose to 78º, but I saw it consistently run in the low-70's for extended duration in AIDA64, according to HWiNFO64. The board he has is not exactly the best (half-decent fan control, and pretty anemic VRMs); it's the MSI Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON. According to Play3r, it uses a 5+2+1 Phase configuration (5 for VCore, 2 for iGPU, and 1 for IMC/PCIe) with 2 Hi-Sides and 2 Lo-Sides per phase, the one phases halves the Hi and Lo-side IC count to 2 for that one phase. Obviously I prefer Asus boards, since from my experience, they're excellent on component selection, easy to work with regarding BIOS, and have a solid lineup of features. For this CPU, I would have liked to have worked with the Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO, which means I could have squeezed out that extra 100 MHz, or lowered the VCore voltage a little further to drive down both thermals and power consumption, because the VCore voltage determines those two metrics. I don't have my own thermocouples and thermocouple reader setup to tape a K-type thermocouple to one of the phases, so I can't give you a scientific measurement of the temperature. But from a non-scientific standpoint, 9 out of 10 times I touch the top heatsink I say it's not going to give me second-degree burns if I left my fingers there for 1 minute.
  6. Build-up on the Wall of the Reservoir

    This, and when I recently serviced my brother's loop, I took the reservoir tube and cleaned it with a soft sponge and dish soap. The reservoir tube came out as if it were unboxed 👌
  7. I don't have any specifications on flow restrictions, but a parallel loop setup will offer the lowest resistance. Singularity Computers once did a parallel single loop setup with two GPU waterblocks and a monoblock, with success. It was used in one of those Thermaltake open-air cases.
  8. Corsair H45 Liquid Cooler

    4-pin PWM fan should obviously go into the CPU fan header. The 3-pin pump should go into the pump fan header
  9. Corsair H45 Liquid Cooler

    Connect the 3-pin connector to the 4-pin fan header. Modern motherboards support both DC and PWM control. I suggest you plug the pump into one of the SYSFAN headers and run it at max RPM.
  10. Thanks. The SR-2 MP has been updated on their site. It now has up to 8 ports, as I mentioned in the OP. I do hope that HWLabs did include the extra two plugs. As for fan setup, I plan on using push only. I tuned my fans to operate at pretty low RPM, and is based on coolant temperature for a smoother fan operation.
  11. Hello. So for my plan to upgrade my radiator for the Threadripper 2 upgrade, I am looking at getting a radiator with a thickness of 60-64mm. There are two radiators I'm looking at, which are the EK-CoolStream XE 480, and the Hardware Labs Black Ice SR-2 Multiport. I'm leaning towards the former, as it only has 4 ports, and the cleaner aestheics, but a higher FPI count, whereas the latter has a lower fin density, 8 ports (I really only need half the port count, if not two, since that's all I plan on using). The difference between the two on PPCs (last I checked), is USD $10 more for the Hardware Labs radiator (USD $149.99 (HWLabs) vs. USD $139.99 (EKWB)). The case I have is a Corsair 900D, and I can definitely fit one of those at the top, and one at the bottom (though I plan on modding the case to fit a 560mm radiator). Does the Hardware Labs Black Ice SR-2 Multiport include 6 plugs to plug up unused ports? If so I'll go and give that rad a shot.
  12. ASUS ROG Rampage VI

    The ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX is primarily an extreme overclocking board, so its feature set is targeting the extreme overclocking audience with its optimized memory layout (4 individual DIMM slots for up to 64GB max) and more streamlined aesthetics. The ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME is tailored for very high-end system builds with large amounts of RAM (128GB max) and excellent aesthetics. Personally this board is my favourite for Intel X299, although I do plan on building a Threadripper 2 build as my successor to my current build that's in use right now. Both share the same VRM components, and are capable of 4-way GPU setups. The differences are that the APEX has a pair of 8-pin EPS 12V connectors and DIMM.2 add-in cards for up to 4 M.2 SSDs, and and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. The RAMPAGE VI EXTREME uses an 8-pin EPS 12V and a 4-pin ATX 12V for the CPU, and a single DIMM.2 add-in card and an on-board M.2 port for up to 3 M.2 SSDs total. Plus, the ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME has on-board 10Gb Ethernet and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ad connectivity for high-speed, in-house networking.
  13. Last night turned out to be fun. Cleaned out @Candren Lycosa's watercooling loop, and I overclocked his Intel Core i7-6700K to 4.7 GHz using 1.4V, and I also enabled the X.M.P profile on my first kit of RAM I bought for my system at the time. The board in question is the MSI Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON, although the VRM seems to me decent at best, and mediocre at worse, it did fine for the overclock. I would have preferred it to be the Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO at least, since there are some features on there that I find extremely useful, such as the excellent fan control (far better than the MSI borad), the better VRM, useful LLC settings, and the ErP settings (S4+S5), which effectively puts the system into an ultra-low power state when shut down.

  14. Most reliable computer you own?

    Most reliable computer I have on hand is the one I'm sitting beside The laptop, the Asus ROG G75VW-DS73-3D was reliable for its time before it ran into some pretty bad thermal issues. It would frequently shut down. Unfortunately, the hardware that's in it is incapable of running modern games at 60 FPS, even with the settings turned down, whether it's at 1080p, 900p, or 720p. Blame that on the GeForce GTX 670M 3GB, which has now gone onto legacy support since it's a Fermi-based rebrand of the GeForce GTX 570M. One other thing it needs is a fresh install of Windows 10, since it is sloooooow.
