  1. Ok, is it just me or have I been waiting a decade to see Linus continue work on the $100,000 PC Build? Anyone know if it has reached Floatplane and is coming to Youtube?
  2. Awesome find! Thanks for sharing EK definitely needs to hear about this.
  3. You can get an i3-8100 for 109.99 and use that savings for a GTX 1050. An get a better single core performance than Ryzen. Intel i3 8100 $109.99 USD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0759FTRZL/?tag=pcpapi-20 vs Ryzen 2400G $159.99 USD Savings gives you $50 towards a dedicated GPU not to mention savings you get from being able to buy slower ram on Intel without performance hit.
  4. #1 Yes #2 You can still play AAA titles with Vega APU, just know that it will be low settings @ 1080p 60hz #3 Yes #4 Depends, there are still good options on the Intel side where you could use Intel HD Graphics while waiting for GPU. #5 Just download the Windows 10 Creators Update ISO and don't activate it, you won't beable to change personalization settings. Linux, very limited game titles.
  5. It's old buddy, haven't updated my profile.
  6. I don't have a 770, I have a GTX 1070. No it doesn't, I have to hack saw the DP port clean off even if IO Bracket was for Type C.
  7. Because I would need to hack saw off the DP port they stuck on second slot. Some people like to EK watercool and replace the back backet with a single slot. Allows us to use the other PCIE slot that gets blocked by 2 slot cards. See the problem yet?
  8. Um go get the AMD Driver from AMD's site, simple google search. https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-ryzen-processors/amd-ryzen-3-desktop-processors-radeon-vega-graphics/amd-ryzen-3-0 Download the one that says "Adrenalin Edition 18.8.1"
  9. Ok really, nobody is taking about this? There is a Type C port on the RTX 2080/2080ti, why did you have to do this to all of the cards... it completely ruins single slot water cooling these cards. If someone really wants a type c port for the GPU then get a Type C to Displayport cable! https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-CDP2DPMM6B-USB-DisplayPort-Cable/dp/B01EZH7CKO #ScrewYouApplevidia
  10. Ok so I have been doing more research on head pressure and flow rate. While I was doing this I got an idea, what if I adapted a inline water psi gauge into a pc water cooling loop. Could I use it to measure the head pressure in different parts of my loop? Converting pressure in psi to head in feet It seems like a fun project to better understand how a water loop works...
  11. Would it matter if I used a high flow rate pump like this dual pump from EK? EK-XTOP Revo Dual D5 PWM Serial Maximum flow: 1500L/h https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xtop-revo-dual-d5-pwm-serial-incl-pump
  12. Couldn't I use T's Splitters that connect to a single input and output pipe?
  13. I have a question, how would I link 2 GPU's that I want to keep separate to a single reservoir, pump, and radiator? Reason is I want to use Quick Disconnect Connectors on both. Here is a visual...
  14. I am the opposite, I avoid motherboards with Wi-Fi. It's added expense that I have no use for. Wi-Fi really sucks when your used to using Ethernet, Wi-Fi Problems Adds Latency Loses Speed over distance Struggles to provide Gigabit speeds Interference from high number of surrounding Wi-Fi Access Points
