  1. Pc Build budget $1500

    Not if they intend to overclock their cpu, ram and gpu.
  2. Pc Build budget $1500

    Buy a used i7 5930k and a something like an Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard, used GTX 1080 founders edition and a Corsair AX 860i, 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 RAM, Corsair H115i cpu cooler, any case that supports ATX motherboards. Storage is up to you.
  3. Im currently pushing my GTX 1080 OC as far as possible. My current OC is 100% Core Voltage, +120% max power limit, +189hz clock speed and +465hz memory speed. The problem is I used to be able to run it with in SLI at +198hz and +498hz on the memory, but now the card cant support that on its own. The card appears to be hitting the power limit aswell for some reason and fluctuates really badly. I have GTX 1080FE but its watercooled with an EK FC1080 and custom loop with 2x240mm and 1x360mm rad. Can anyone recommend how I stabalise this OC?
  4. My new MATX Custom Waterloop build

    Finally got the system completed and up and running. Heres some pics of the finished thing. p
  5. My new MATX Custom Waterloop build

    Got my new loop installed. Everything looks great. Going to test the loop for leaks. Hopefully should be gaming on it by the end of the day.
  6. Im building my newest pc, downsizing from my last build which was an x99 platform build with 2x1080's in SLI in a Thermaltake Core X9. Long story short I killed my i7 5960x by Overclocking it, probably too much voltage for too long. I made the decision to downsize from the CORE X9 as my pump didnt have enough pressure for the 3x480mm rads i had in my loop, so I've downsized to an Inwin 8.0.5.5 Cube MATX case which ironically cost me more to buy than the larger case. Anyway I sold the dead 5960x and my Asus X99 E WS motherboard and downsized to a 5820k and Asrock X99M Fat1lity motherboard (which i got in a bundle for only £200), which cost me less than I sold my Asus X99 E WS motherboard for (£240). Anyway for the custom waterloop I bought 2x Nemesis Black Ice 240mm rads for £35 each and 1x Nemesis Black Ice 360mm rad new. Bought a used XSPC Ion reservoir as I needed something compact and solid which provided multiple mounting options. Anyway my everything else from my old build is basically being reused; Pump, PSU, Hard Drives, SSDs, Soundcard and one of my GTX 1080's which I hadnt sold yet. Might be a bit of a downgrade but its a cheap system to hold me over till Threadripper 2 and the new model mobo's and hopefully a new X399 MATX motherboard releases. Heres my progress so far with what Ive managed to assemble in the case. I'll be updating this post once I have made some progress, ideally when fiiting the piping.
  7. Rate my New Build

    Im thinking of waiting to see what the 2950x or whatever its called performs like. Hopefully its compatible with the current x399 mobos like AMD said.
  8. Rate my New Build

    Im beginning preperations for my new pc build. Ive dismanteld my last one which had a 5960x, 1080's SLI and 3x480mm rads in a custom hard piping loop. Ive decided to do a MATX build this time, as my last build had 3 rads, 2 gpu's and a cpu in the same loop, all powered by an AX1500i and an EK X-top Dual Revo d5 pump. The problem was by time the water reached the reservoir it was practically trickling in despite both pumps running at 100%. I assume that there wasnt enough pressure and too much resistance from the loop, so Ive decided to do a smaller, more compact loop reusing many of my parts but upgrading others. I plan to do a Threadripper 1950x (watercooled), ASRock X399M Taichi MATX Motherboard, 32gb Corsair Dominator 3600mhz limited edition Platinum RAM, and a GTX 1180 (which i will watercool) when it releases. With my experiences with Nvidias poor SLI GPU Optimization Ive decided not to bother with SLI ever again. The case Ive bought is an InWin 8.0.S.S Cube Case supporting MATX Motherboards. I plan to use 2x380mm slim rads along the top, and a slim 240mm rads along the front. This should allow for enough coolong potential for a single CPU and GPU, whilst the slim form factor minimises resistance in the loop, hopefully allowing for better water pressure within the loop. This case will no doubt be more compact and difficult to work in than my Thermaltake Core X9, but having some experience now doing a custom loop in a horizontally mounted case with Hard piping, i beleive it should be achievable. Here is a pick of my case so far, checking clearance and positioning with the pump, reservoir, psu and hard drives mounted.
  9. I might have to. Its weird because ive only been able to find bay adapters aswell, you'd think that there would be someone selling these things.
  10. Ive purchased a new case (inwin 8.0.S.S Cube) which has like 8 5.25" bays that can be used to fit fan controllers and bay reservoirs and the like, but the problem is that it doesnt have any of the trays/mounting supports that you would typically slide a fan controller/whater into which would screw/clip into the sides to hold it in place. All it seems to have are 4 small screws holding each of the 5.25 mesh bay filters in place. Does anyone know of anywhere i can buy some 5.25 bay support brackets/trays that i could mount into this case. They would look like these 5.25 bay trays like in the Thermaltake V21. 2502163-xl-c.webp
  11. With my PSU I wouldnt trust anything other than the manufacturers cables, besides im not even sure there are custom cables for the AX 1500i.
  12. This is my new case. Its dwarfed by my current one.
  13. Planning on using less fans next build so i wont need so many extensions cables and cable splitters so hopefully it will all look a little more presentable. This was more so a function>form build anyway. Wanted to go all out on cooling potential decided to add as many fans as possible
  14. To be fair the lit shots were taken before i installed the LEDS and tidied the cabling up a bit, but working in a case where the mobo is mounted horizontally and there is no room to hide a cable nest means making your case look tidy and aesthetically pleasing is almost impossible.
  15. Planning New build - Case Query

    I have found that when i fitted the 2 retention brackets that you can buy to support the weight of the reservoir, they need to be secured by tightening a screw against the back of the res so that it doesnt wobble in the brackets which are cyclindrical in shape and need to be slid down the res to fit them. It is when tightening these screws that the forward pressure is enough to push the glass ever so slightly forward that it lifts up the back of the base of the glass in the reservoir, enough that it breakes the seal and water can start to seap/ around the base, gradually forming droplets. Its not ideal so i have placed some tissue underneath the res now until i start my next build. Witnessing that was enough to convinve me to stay away from any reservoir that isnt sealed from the factory and requires assembly, which is why i was looking at 5.25 bay reservoirs. Im looking at getting an XSPC ION reservoir now anyway as that comes sealed from the factory and looks like a very sturdu reservoir with it steel surrounding.
