  1. Thanks! Can I ask, did you buy both kits at the same time?
  2. Hi! thanks for replying Going to workstation boards that have quad-channel. That is why I asked. Also, I don't get the "slowest" RAM, they are all rated the same, they just come from different batches and kits.
  3. Okay, I am on my way to upgrading to a workstation board (may it be the x99 platform or the newer skylake-x platform out next year) Problem is that, currently, I have 2x8gb kit in my system right now, but I do want to reuse the ram (to kinda save up on losses) as I will be selling my board and my CPU for cheap. Exact model number is Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2B3000C15. It is the Black one. Also, there are other colors, will matching my current set with one with a different color be possible with other colors, and or the same color (black)? I am guessing that the board should be all the same.
  4. Is it the same ones I'm planning to use? I've read that low profile fittings would only have 1 o-ring, and I can't see clearly on bitspower's website if how many o-rings the fittings have.
  5. Hi! I will be upgrading my soft tubing watercooling setup to a hard tubing setup and am choosing between ek hdc compression fittings https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hdc-fitting-12mm-g1-4-nickel or bitspower enhance multilink fittings. http://www.bitspower.com/html/product/pro_show.php?products_id=3224 I plan on using 12mm OD EK PETG tubes. I like the design of the bitspower one, and have read that their quality is top-notch. It costs about 2 dollars more than the EK though, and I was thinking if its worth it. And also I am concerned about the bitspower being a low profile (looks like it) fitting. Which should I pick? I will be ordering my parts by tonight.
  6. Thank you for these tips! Will try to stretch the paracord to adapt it to my wires. Thanks again. I'll go for them ek HD adaptors.
  7. Watched some guides by Lustro0. Apparently it's doable, but I think my psu wires are a bit on the thin side. Will post results here
  8. Thought so. Would it be a problem, though?
  9. Thanks for your quick reply! For number 2, it's not technically PSU sleeving. It's your standard 550 paracord sleeving (I like the feel and the non-showthrough) nature of paracord. If I stretch it, would it adapt to the thickness of my wire?
  10. Hi! Will be changing from soft tubing to hard tubing, in the coming weeks/months and I want your opinions. Will be using PETG tubes by EK. (12mm OD) Got a pair of questions, 1. Are hard tubing adapters also enough for main bended tubing fittings? (adapters are usually used to connect SLI GPUs using crystal link cables) The ones I am eyeing is EKs black HD adapters, for their low profile but still 2 o-ring construction. (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hd-adapter-csq-10-12mm-black) I've seen varying posts about this and am now confused. 2. will paracord sleeving adapt to the thickness of the wire? Standard paracord is 4mm in size, but I can't find any proof that it would adapt to my wires (about 3mmOD) Guides that I watched used standard, but I am afraid of slacking in the sleeving.
  11. Looks nice! Thanks for the guide on removing those foam things. :)) I also modded my razer h440 for arduino controlled RGBs but am stuck at how to change the razer logos! PS. Did you calculate for the current on those LAN cable wires? I use the same ones but tripled the common wire because it would draw a lot of current when it is at a bright white!
  12. It's a non-unlocked processor, an intel i7 960. I don't think it can be down clocked, though if I remember correctly, it does support the intel speedstep feature.
